Deep Silver To Host The First UK Zombie-Themed Wedding

…To celebrate the launch of Dead Island Riptide…

Deep Silver has 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 their new zombie game Dead Island Riptide.

The search to find two engaged Dead Island superfans, who were willing to be zombified for a legally-binding wedding, began in January and the ceremony will be the centrepiece of the celebrations for the launch of Dead Island Riptide on 26th April. After being inundated with video applications, 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.

On hearing that they had won, Jennifer commented: “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. Thanks Deep Silver & Koch Media!”

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.
