A childless Bosnian couple staged and attended their own funeral saying they wanted it to be an opportunity to celebrate life with friends and family.

Dragan Maric, 61, and his 65-year-old wife Dragica had sent invites to their pretend funeral and some 200 people turned up.

During the ceremony at a cemetery in the northern village of Pojezdina, Dragan held a speech about the couples’ love-filled life. The “mourners” then proceeded to a traditional post-burial feast in a local restaurant which turned into an all-night celebration with music and dancing.

Dragan said: “We do not have children so we had to organize a proper funeral for ourselves before we die.”

He added: “Our only obligation now is to die when our time comes and that is just a formality.”
