Pensioner's solo wedding album
A retired schoolteacher has finally posed for an album full of glamourous wedding photos - 30 years after her husband died.
Liu Fu, 76, played the part of both bride and groom for a photo session at a studio in Zhengzhou, Henan province, China.
"We didn't have much money when we married so my husband Feng and I had a small wedding. But I've always wanted a proper wedding album," she explained.
So a host of wardrobe experts, hairdressers and make-up artists spent hours restyling Liu for her double take.
First Liu was styled as her groom in an emperor's costume and then dressed as a 1920s Shanghai gangster.
Then as the bride, Lui was clad in a traditional empress's costume, then in a Western white wedding dress to complete the set.
"It was wonderful - the answer to all my dreams. My only regret is that my husband couldn't share it," she said.
