Couple Snaps Wedding Photographs in a Coffin

Weddings are a chance to show the world your love in a totally unique way but one couple has taken their individuality to the extreme.

Jenny Tay, 29, and Darren Cheng, 30, who both work as undertakers, say that the concept of death is as important to them as ever, even when it comes to saying 'I do'.

Jenny, who is a Buddhist, told the Straits Times: “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?”
She also said that she was keen for people to become more comfortable with death, as the daughter of a renowned undertaker who often hosts funerals for murder victims and those who die in poverty.

The images were snapped in a park in Punggol, Singapore – one of many unusual shoots to have been organised by newly-married couples in recent times.

Jenny and her husband were keen for it to be “pretty and whimsical” so they eschewed the idea of setting it in a graveyard.

Darren has even written a children's book about death, Where Did Grandpa Go, because it is part of life. The happy couple got photographer Joel Lim on board, and he was happy to be involved in the concept
