The Wedding Of The Dead

Posted by GG Goblin On April - 24 - 2013

Last night saw the first UK zombie-themed wedding, celebrating the marriage of Jennifer Jones and Rob Blackmore, and the release of Deep Silver’s Dead Island Riptide this Friday, April 26th.

 
Jennifer Blackmore (nee Jones), 27, looked resplendent as she shuffled down the aisle in her tattered wedding dress, to be greeted at the altar by her now husband, Rob Blackmore, 31. The couple were made up to look like the undead creatures normally found shuffling and preying on the living in a Hollywood zombie apocalypse movie.

 
Over 250 people gathered to bear witness to zombie Jenn and zombie Rob’s nuptials, including friends and family who travelled down from Liverpool to see the couple get hitched zombie-style. The pair became the official Dead Island Riptide zombie wedding bride and groom after entering a competition on Facebook, and beat off dozens of applicants earlier this year by impressing the judges with their genuine love for each other, and enthusiasm for the Dead Island franchise.

 
The unorthodox wedding ceremony took place at One Mayfair in London, which was dressed to look like a Caribbean paradise gone to hell – a theme that runs through the Dead Island series of games. The latest of which, Dead Island Riptide, goes on sale in the UK this Friday, 26th April 2013.

 
Following the wedding blessing and exchanging of the vows presided over by a zombie priest, the ceremony went on to provide the usual trappings found at a traditional wedding, including: the speeches, cutting of the cake and the first dance… but all with a ghoulish zombie twist. Live music was provided by zombified band Mariachi Mexteca, as well as a DJ set from presenter and actress Sarah Chapman.

 
Jennifer Jones, Dead Island Riptide zombie bride, said:

“We’re thrilled to have been chosen to be the official zombie bride and groom for Dead Island Riptide! We’re big fans of Dead Island and the horror genre, and a zombie wedding is a dream come true for us.”

 
As well as hosting a zombie-style beach wedding, Dead Island Riptide’s publisher, Deep Silver, will also be sending the undead couple off on a Caribbean honeymoon.

 
Photos and video from the zombie wedding are now available on the official Facebook page:
