A newlywed has won praise after being photographed breastfeeding her baby while getting married.

Danielly Katsue, 24, from Cuiabá, Brazil, looked every inch the beautiful bride as she fed three-month-old baby Kauã while exchanging her vows with husband Kale Rios, 26, according to the Daily Mail.

Photographer Monica Carvalho, who captured the tender moment, decided to share the wedding pictures on Instagram, which she says show that women can breastfeed their babies "no matter the time, or place".

Other social media users were quick to react, with many saying they had been moved by the "beautiful" pictures. 

Speaking to FEMAIL, Monica explained how she was initially worried about sharing the pictures online as she wasn't sure what reaction they'd get.

"I was scared at first but I was pretty sure people would find it as beautiful as I did", she said.

"Fortunately, the majority of people loved the images. Many said they were moved by the images, which is enough to know that I did a beautiful job."

She said the photographs show that women should feel confident breastfeeding their babies, no matter the time, place, or who's looking.

The photographs of Danielly breastfeeding during her wedding have received an enormous response, with many taking to social media to praise the pictures.

One wrote: "I thought it was beautiful for this mother to do that. Wonderful photo. Congratulations."

Another commented "This bride is perfection", while one added: "What a beautiful picture! So much love in one photo."

However, not all the response has been positive - with some accusing the bride of breastfeeding to "get attention" and others suggesting it was "inappropriate".
