Couple pose in coffin for pre-wedding photoshoot!

A Chinese couple, Jenny Tay and Darren Cheng have adopted an extreme measure for their Pre-wedding/engagement photos.

Their funeral-themed shoot may seem a bit over the top, yet they are still quite beautiful in a dark twisted way.

Explaining why they shot their pre-wedding photos with a casket,
Jenny who is a Buddhist, said she wants people to become more
comfortable with death.

She told the Mashable:

 “When couples take wedding pictures, many
of them think of something significant and meaningful to them – their
favourite cafe, the place where they first met. Both of us are very
passionate about our jobs, so I thought, why not?

In Asian culture, there are a lot of taboos
regarding death. People don’t want to talk about it. Being in this
trade, we thought that we could try to influence peoples’ perceptions
about the death industry, allowing them to be more open about it.

We want to be able to show that actually
death is part of life. If you fear death, really you are fearing life as
well. We thought that by doing this we (could) show that we embrace
life as much as how we embrace death.”

The pre-wedding photos were taken ahead of the couple’s nuptials in October.
