All wedding pictures are special in their own unique way.

But when the nuptials are Titanic-themed they can clearly rock the boat when shared on social media.

Users of a wedding shaming Facebook group have slammed a couple who shared a DIY prop resembling the famous ship – reminiscent of the 1997 film starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.

But far from highlighting the romantic film remake of the tragedy – the couple have come under criticism for the tragedy of the famous ship sinking in 1912 – which killed more than 1,500 people.

The photo was innocently shared by the bride's aunt who was proud of her efforts making the photo prop herself – with help from who husband who built the frame.

The caption reads: "My niece got married this past weekend in a Titanic themed wedding.

"She badly wanted a photo prop for her reception so my husband accepted the challenge.

"He built the frame and I painted it. Such a fun project I had to share. It was a beautiful day and she was thrilled."

But the loving gesture to fulfil her niece's wedding request turned sour when shared on social media.

One user posted: "This really p***** me off.

"My dad's great uncle was a 15 year old stoker on that damn boat who died a terrifying death. This is NOT ROMANTIC!! What’s next? Pompeii themed ceremonies."

While a second added: "I blame that stupid movie for making a terrible tragedy that killed 1500 people into a romantic story."

Another wrote: "No. No. No. No. Do NOT romanticise mass death people."

And a third said: "The movie was still about the actual event so idc what they were trying to mimic it's in bad taste. That's just foul. What is wrong with people."

But despite the negative comments there were others who felt the couple were entitled to take the recreate the magic of the James Cameron film.

"It's clearly based upon the film and a ship which was a romantic place?" said one.

While another argued that the Titanic ship was the "pinnacle of luxury and romance" at the time.

And a former insider said the staircase was all special to many adding:"I used to work at a Titanic museum and the amount of people who wanted to get married/engaged on the staircase was wild," they revealed.
