The practice of Voodoo weddings, in which white people and their friends dress up as dead, pagan spirits or ghosts, is still widely practiced in some African countries.
But according to some experts, the ceremony is becoming more and more popular in the US.
ABC News has spoken to Voodoo expert Robert Smith to find out what you need to know about this traditional ceremony.
Voodoo rituals are believed to have originated in South America in the 18th century.
The ritual involves the preparation of a dead body for the main ceremony, which involves eating and drinking from the corpse, and the ceremonial slaughter of animals.
“When people go to a funeral they bring back a little bit of the dead person and that’s the ritual,” Mr Smith said.
“The only thing that you’re missing is the body itself. “
“It’s basically all the ingredients you need, so that’s where the idea of a Voodo comes from.” “
The main Voodoo ceremony takes place in a sacred, well-lit room at the local church, with attendees eating the human body. “

Participants also make a meal of animal parts, often lamb or pig.
There are different forms of Voodos to choose from, including the traditional African one that involves cutting up a pig’s head, then eating the head and eating the body.
The main rite of the ceremony involves eating a human body and eating it, then the head.
“So the body’s a human being, so it’s not really a human sacrifice, and then it’s the head,” Mr Brown said.
Voodoes are commonly seen in the Caribbean and Central America, particularly in rural areas.
In the United States, where Voodoo has been largely banned, Voodoo is more popular than ever, with many people in rural parts of the country dressing up as spirits.
“In the last 10 years or so, people have started showing up in the traditional areas and doing a lot of rituals, like putting on blackface masks, and I think that’s really just a part of their tradition,” Mr Jones said.
In some places, people are doing the same, or even more, traditional Voodoo.
“If you go into the traditional communities, it’s very traditional,” Mr Black said.
“When people come to the traditional community, they’re not dressing up in blackface, they wear traditional attire.”
But in other parts of Africa, people wear masks and costumes to make themselves look more traditional.
In Tanzania, a local Voodoo priest told ABC News the ceremony was now “quite a lot more common”.
“People go to church, they do rituals.
It’s not just people who do it for their own reasons,” the priest, Ebba Kogwunzi, said.

Mr Smith believes the practice is becoming increasingly popular in rural America.
“Voodoo is really becoming more popular because it’s an ancient African religion and it’s about honoring the dead,” Mr Johnson said.
But Voodoo ceremonies have also been condemned in recent years, with the US Senate investigating whether the practice promotes the “cult of death”.
In a 2014 report, the Senate called on the Government to investigate Voodoo practices and “disclose the religious and cultural roots of the Voodoo religion”.
It also recommended that the Government review all federal funds to the US Government, including those awarded by the US government.
In the United Kingdom, a government study has found that Voodoo practitioners were more likely to be unemployed than people without religious beliefs, and a study published in the journal Human Relations in 2015 found that the Voodoos were also more likely than non-Voodoo practitioners to use alcohol and drugs.
But a study by the British Association of Succinct People found that people with a religious background were less likely to believe in ghosts and spirits.
According to Mr Smith, the Voo-dolls and the Vooko-doll weddings are becoming more common, because they are the traditional ceremonies of people who are trying to look more like the African people who have been doing the ceremonies for centuries.
Voodoo weddings are sometimes seen in countries that are more traditionally African, such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Democratic Union of the Republic of Tanzania.
But many Voodoo experts believe Voodoo can also be found in other cultures.
“Some of the practices that Voodoo people do are very much African, and some of the beliefs that Voo are also African,” Mr White said.
“There’s a lot that goes into it that I think is very interesting.”
