Deep Silver ran a search for the ultimate couple to have a zombie-themed wedding, to coincide with their release of Dead Island: Riptide. Pretty cool.

Deep Silver today revealed the identity of the real-life couple who will be joined in undead matrimony at a legally recognised zombie-themed wedding in London on 23rd April 2013, celebrating the launch of new zombie videogame Dead Island Riptide™


Deep Silver has selected Jennifer Jones, 27, and Rob Blackmore, 31, whose application, genuine love for each other, and enthusiasm for the Dead Island franchise made them the ideal undead couple.


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

The nuptials will take place on 23rd April 2013 at One Mayfair in London, and being a thoroughly legitimate wedding, it will include all of the traditional trappings of a ceremony… but with a Dead Island spin. The bride will arrive for the ceremony in the specially customised Dead Island Riptide pickup truck, where the couple will make their everlasting vows to one another. The ceremony will be followed by speeches and a first dance, with music provided by an undead mariachi band.
