This may seem like two people getting made up to star in a horror film, but instead they are getting married. Horror-obsessed couple Jennifer Jones and Rob Blackmore were transformed into shuffling zombies after they won a competition to hold the quirky wedding as part of the release of the new video game, "Dead Island Riptide." The undead couple read their romantic vows in the attendance of 250 guest zombies in London. After the ceremony they said that they loved their unique wedding. SOUNDBITE: Rob Blackmore, saying (English) "It was all there. Our original plan was to get married on Halloween and have a horror themed wedding but this is even better." The hellish nuptial was complete with a zombified mariachi band and a blood stained wedding cake, set on a demonic Caribbean island. Needless to say it's modeled after the game that will go on sale on April 26.
