The search to find two engaged Dead Island superfans, who were willing to be zombified for a legally-binding wedding, began in January. After being inundated with video applications, Deep Silver 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 April 23, 2013 at One Mayfair in London and 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 customized 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.
