Flick through any couple’s wedding album and you’re likely to see the same pictures only with different faces. A tender kiss beneath a setting sun, a group shot full of waving hands and a shower of confetti are par for the course. But newlyweds Mikhail and Alexandra aren’t just any couple. They posed for the pictures 100 metres down an abandoned mineshaft in Chelyabinskaya Oblast, Russia, with just bats and Soviet era industrial equipment for compant. As if that weren’t enough though, Mikhail donned a balaclava and wielded a flaming torch before putting on a pig mask to stun his new bride. Caters

You’re mine: The shaft is located in Chelyabinskaya Ofblast, Russia While the shoot wasn’t affected by bad weather the location did have its own setbacks, mainly getting a white wedding dress down a mineshaft without getting dirty. Alexandra said: “Newlyweds always want their wedding shoot to be special, but we wanted something extra. Caters

Nice day for a weird wedding: Bride Alexandra had towork hard to avoid getting dirty “Not everyone is brave enough to do their wedding shoot down a mineshaft. “We had to wear the masks on the way down the mineshaft as it’s closed and we weren’t allowed down there. We then just added them in. Caters

Burning love: Mikhail waved around a flaming torch – just to set the mood “The shoot really wasn’t easy and the hardest thing was getting everything down the mineshaft in the first place. “We had to go down a really narrow hole, so we wore special suits first to get down and then changed when we got down. Caters

Hot stuff: The newlyweds wore masks and dodged bats in the mineshaft “It was pretty scary as it was absolutely pitch black down there and our only source of light were torches. It was full of strange noises and bats. “We tried not to think about how dangerous the mine was as it was so old and there weren’t any safety checks carried out on it. “The wood was all rotted at the bottom, so it could well have collapsed at any time. “Down the shaft was very cold – so cold in fact that by the end of the shoot we couldn’t feel our fingers or toes.” VIEW GALLERY
