Horror fans have tied the knot in what could be the UK's first zombie-themed wedding.

Zombie bride Jennifer Jones walked down the aisle with her husband Rob Blackmore after being transformed into flesh-eating creatures normally found in a Hollywood movie.

Their dream wedding took place after the couple from Stockbridge, Liverpool, won a competition to mark the release of new zombie computer game, Dead Island Riptide.

Warehouse assistant Rob, 31, said: "Ever since I was a child in the 1980s and saw my first zombie film, I was drawn to zombies.

"When technology grew and computer games came out, the first zombie game I played was Resident Evil. From there it just escalated and I became a huge fan. I've never played a zombie game I haven't liked."

Jennifer, 27, said: "It was never going to be like that. We wanted to get married on Halloween anyway so it was always going to be a spooky, creepy, weird wedding."

An open invitation was sent to footballer Luis Suarez to attend the ceremony after he bit Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic during a Premier League match on Sunday.

But had the Liverpool striker turned up on the day, bride Jennifer would have "tackled him and bit him first".

More than 250 people attended the ceremony, which was decorated as a "hellish" Caribbean paradise.

Live music was provided by "zombified" band Mariachi Mexteca before the couple left for a honeymoon in the Caribbean.
