It was Henry’s expression that was at the center of a flood of netizen comments. One commenter said, ‘Were you going for an evocation and reversal of the Disaster Girl meme with this photo?’. While another gushed, ‘This is the best wedding photo of ALL TIME. I hope you have framed versions of it hanging in every room of your house so you are never in a space where you can’t see this photo.’ Many wished the couple well and praised the fantastic snap.
