Chinese Couple Wraps Each Other With Live Golden Pythons for Wedding Photos

One Chinese couple in Jilin City decided to take some unique wedding photos last week with the help of some slithery animal friends — two massive golden pythons.

Rather than exchange bricks of cash, the couple decided to exchange male and female golden pythons before really wrapping themselves up with the snakes for some wedding photos that might make those with ophidiophobia, or the fear of snakes, cringe in terror.


In Chinese culture, snakes can symbolize everything from evil, honor to good fortune. In the case of the golden pythons, we are going to guess that they stand for good fortune.


The couple also volunteers at a local animal protection shelter, according to NetEase, so at least they share a close and binding love of animals.
