Everybody wants the perfect photo, especially when they’re with their loved one.

But as Elaina balanced on her partner’s lap for the camera, the pair toppled backwards into the water.

Luckily, whoever was taking the photo caught the whole episode on camera – even filming them emerging dripping from the fountain.

And after the event she tweeted to a friend that people had been staring at her and her boyfriend wondering why they were “drenched”, as well as some asking where she had got her dress from.
