Botanic Gardens, Sentosa, Changi Beach and the Flyer are typical spots for couples to take their wedding shoots. Now add FairPrice supermarkets to the list.

A growing number of couples are giving a new twist to what it means to walk down the aisle, by adding pictures of themselves alongside fruits, vegetables and cans into their wedding album.

The supermarket chain said it received more then 30 requests for wedding photo sessions last year, double the number in 2012.

Yesterday morning, it was 30-year-old social media manager Smith Leong and teacher Chris Goh, 29, who took their turn posing in wedding finery in a FairPrice outlet at City Square Mall.
