Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West spent their honeymoon perfecting their first wedding photograph. How romantic.

According to Kanye, he dedicated a whopping four days to touching up that famous wedding 'kiss' photograph before releasing it to the public.

Poor Kim.

Kanye said he had no choice but to retouch the image himself after celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz pulled out of shooting their nuptials the day before they exchanged vows.

He explained: "Let me tell you something about that kiss photo that my girl put up [on Instagram] … this was pissing my girl off during the honeymoon, she was exhausted because we worked on the photo so much because Annie Leibovitz pulled out right before the wedding.

"I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity."

Poor Kim. Staring at a computer screen maybe isn't the most exciting way to spend your honeymoon... On the plus side, the photograph did turn out really well!

The first wedding picture was taken outside the 16th century Fort Belvedere in Florence, in front of a beautiful wall of flowers, which Kanye had surprised Kim with.

Kanye, who was speaking at a Cannes Lion panel event (via New York Post), continued: "Because Annie pulled out, I was like, 'Okay, I still want my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz,' and we sat there and worked on that photo for, like, four days because the flowers were off-colour.

"Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who's the No. 1 person on Instagram, 'We need to work on the colour of the flower wall,' or the idea that it's a Givenchy dress, and it's not about the name Givenchy, it's about the talent that is Riccardo Tisci — and how important Kim is to the Internet."

As bizarre as it might sound, we guess it turned out for the best. The photograph of Kim and Kanye kissing at the altar is the number one most liked image in Instagram's history.

Kim and Kanye married in Florence, Italy on 24 May and then jetted to Ireland for a low-key honeymoon away from the spotlight. Last week, they took a second honeymoon to Mexico. Presumably there was no photo retouching going on during that one...
