A beautiful wedding photo shoot for a California couple went awry after a huge wave swept them from an ocean-side rock into the sea.

The soaked incident was reportedly recorded by a witness from a vantage point at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach.

Image material obtained by TMX News shows the sweet couple posing together along a series of coastal rocks on Treasure Beach Island.

The unidentified couple take a moment to take photos to change their wedding clothes, but are unaware of the unstable waves looming nearby.

A powerful wave suddenly rushes to the rocks, completely washes over the surface and drags the pair to the Pacific.

But a surge of coronavirus peaks in California forced local officials to shut down city-operated beaches in Laguna Beach and Orange County on July 4, The Los Angeles Times reports.

Officials said they are concerned about the increasing number of infections as beaches become overcrowded and social distance is widely violated.

“Especially on July 4, when there were fireworks … it looked like sardines in a can,” said Laguna Beach Mayor Pro Tem Steve Dicterow.

“There was no space between people. My concern is that even without the fireworks there may be a huge density of people on the beaches. ‘
