A bride gave her wedding guests quite the surprise by arriving at the church for her ceremony — on the back of a tractor.
Kathryn McKay, 33, turned up at the church ceremony in the bucket of a Massey Ferguson 135 driven by her farmer dad, Henry McKay, 66, as SWNS, the British news service, reported of the event.
McKay chose the unusual wedding vehicle as a tribute to her rural family’s background, she said.
She added, “We arrived safely without any hiccups or rain and had a beautiful service with our friends and family.”
Wanted to include her heritage
McKay said she grew up on a farm and wanted to include her heritage in the ceremony.
The bride and groom had a Range Rover on standby in case the tractor broke down.

She thought it was a great idea.

Her husband said, “It was the perfect entry because anyone who knows Kathryn knows she’s farming mad,” as SNWS reported.
McKay still keeps her hand in at the farm, she said.
Said McKay, “I still take a few weeks [of] annual leave every April to help my dad with the lambing.”
