A man in China has married his partner’s corpse during her funeral to show his love for her after she lost her battle with breast cancer.
The heart-broken groom, 35-year-old Xu Shinan, hoped that the wedding ceremony could realise his late fiancée’s dream of being a bride.
Xu’s deceased partner of 12 years, Yang Liu, was dressed in a white bridal gown and surrounded by 169 bouquets pink roses when Xu read his wedding vows to her, according to a local report.
The special ceremony took place on Saturday morning in the funeral parlour of Dalian in eastern China.
It was witnessed by the families and friends of the couple.
Yang died on October 14 at the age of 34 after battling with cancer for five and a half years.
