A sunbaker who refused to move from the sand spoiled the scene of an intimate Adelaide beach wedding.
The woman was pictured half-naked, lying face-down on the beach as a couple exchanged their vows in Port Willunga, South Australia.
The photo, which has gone viral on Instagram page Shit Adelaide, was captured by an Adelaide girl.
‘That awkward moment when a beach wedding interrupts your sun tanning session,’ the page posted.
The woman who took the photo told Daily Mail Australia she assumed the woman was asleep.
‘She was just one metre away, it was pretty funny,’ she said.
Social media users reacted with amusement and surprise to the post on Monday.
‘Haha hopefully no-one will be doing that at our wedding,’ one user said.
‘I thought it was a dead body which would be slightly worse,’ another person posted.
Mystery surrounds the identity of the woman or whether she knew the couple getting hitched.
One person speculated that the woman may have been a cousin, while another person suggested the woman may have been the bride.
‘That’s just cousin Shazza. She always passes out drunk and half naked at family weddings although during the ceremony is a new record,’ one person speculated.
‘Maybe that was the bride,’ another instagram user suggested.
Port Willunga has consistently been rated as one of Adelaide’s best beaches.
