The wedding was already unforgettable for its sheer lavishness, but now a picture taken during Kim Kardashian’s nuptials with Kanye West has made history as the most liked of all time on Instagram.

The image of the couple kissing posted by the reality TV star bride after the private ceremony at a fortress in Florence has been given the thumbs up by 2.4 million users.

Kardashian and her rapper husband West married at the 16th-century Fort Belvedere in May, after jetting in from Paris where they had been celebrating at the sumptuous Palace of Versailles.

Instagram has revealed that the image of their embrace attracted the most likes this year and also the most since the picture-sharing app was launched more than four years ago.

The social network’s year in review also showed that Tower Bridge and the Tower of London were the top ‘geo-tagged’ locations in the UK – reflecting the popularity of the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation that saw thousands of poppies fill the moat at the landmark.

Geo-tagging allows users to share their location with their followers. Other popular venues in the UK were Harrods, Big Ben and the British Museum (3rd, 4th and 5th).

Disneyland in California was the most geo-tagged location around the world.

The second most liked Instagram post of the year was a selfie posted by pop superstar Justin Bieber with on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez with 1.9 million in the last three months.Third was a picture posted by Ariana Grande of her with Miley Cyrus backstage at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, with 1.84 million likes.

In keeping with the romantic theme of the most popular photo of the year, the most used hashtag was “love”.

Instagram, which was bought by Facebook in 2012, has 200 million users who share 65 million photos every day.
