Twitter users pointed out that the newlyweds formed a heart shape in their carriage On a day when thousands of photos were beamed around the world, one is standing out.

Press Association photographer Yui Mok snapped the photo from directly above Prince Harry and Meghan's carriage following their wedding in St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday. 

'I was positioned on the roof of George IV Gateway of Windsor Castle, and they passed directly beneath me during their carriage procession,' Mok explained to fans on Twitter.

'I had less than a one-second window to take that particular shot - whilst having to focus through a metal grill I was standing over - so was happy to get anything really!' said Mok.

One even dubbed the photo 'Diana's View' of the royal wedding.

'I don't know who took this picture, but it's exquisite,' said one Twitter user. 

'Some of the best shots are those that taken a more unusual angle. Excellent photo,' wrote journalist Natalie Marchant.

For the photo, Mok said he used a Canon 1Dx Mk2 camera and a 70-200mm lens. 

He was also carrying a Cannon Pro Network 600mm F4 for other shots that day.

'Drones would never have been allowed anywhere near' the wedding, he pointed out.

Because he was shooting from a vantage with limited access, Mok was a pool photographer for the wedding, meaning his photos from the wedding were shared among news outlets and seen around the world.

Mok has been a staff photographer for Press Association, a British news agency, since 2000, covering news, royals, politics and more in the UK and around the world. 

The veteran snapper made sure to give credit to the PA photo desk, who were working overtime on Saturday.

The photo desk, Mok explained, 'crop and tidy up the raw images that we send to them directly from our cameras on big jobs like this, before they are issued to the wider world. 

'They tend to be unsung, whilst photographers end up grabbing all the glory.'
