Loved brewed in coffin Couple pose in coffin for ‘Dead Romantic’ engagement photos

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?

Pre-wedding/engagement photos are a chance to show the world your love in a totally unique way  but this couple took theirs to the extreme, most creative so far.

Dressed in a dramatic red gown, Jenny Tay lies in the arms of her fiancé, Darren Cheng and they are comfortably smiling from a casket.

The couple work as undertakers in Singapore. 29 year old Jenny is managing director of Direct Funeral Services, a funeral services firm founded by her father, Roland, who describes himself as “Singapore’s most famous undertaker”. Cheng, 30, is the company’s business development director and grief counselor.

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

She 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?".

Cheng added, "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", she said.
