Kim Kardashian takes the Instagram crown for 2014

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 Daily Mail reports.

The image of the couple kissing, posted by the reality TV star bride after her Florence ceremony, has been given the thumbs up by 2.4 million users.

In third place was a picture posted by Ariana Grande of her and Miley Cyrus backstage at the MTV Video Music Awards in August. This image received 1.84 million likes.

The social network’s year in review also showed that Tower Bridge and the Tower of London were the top ‘geotagged’ locations in the UK, while in the US Disneyland and the Dodger Stadium in LA topped the list.

Many of the images of the Tower included shots of the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red installation that saw thousands of poppies fill the moat at the iconic landmark.

Meanwhile, Disneyland in California was the most geotagged location around the world. And the most liked museums on Instagram were the Louvre in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York and New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
