27-yr-old Claire Davies had driven in a borrowed tractor to wed her farmer husband, Huw Davies
A farmer's bride-to-be made a grand entrance to her own wedding in something large and unusual - a vintage tractor.
27-yr-old Claire Davies had driven in a borrowed tractor to wed her farmer husband, Huw Davies, before they both left in a convoy of six tractors loaned to them by close friends.
“Tractors were a big part of my life, so it was important to me that they were included in my wedding day.
“We even had a tractor-shaped wedding cake with both of us on top, which was really good.
“I was so pleased that they featured so heavily in the day, ” 25-yr-old Huw said.
Claire and Huw were married in Cimla Church in the presence of family and friends before heading for the reception at Manor Park in Clydach.
“To have the six Ford tractors together is incredibly rare too, so we were really lucky that they were able to pull it off.
“The tractors were driven by some friends of theirs, and some family friends, who came forward to help us with the organisation of it all.
“The guests loved it. They thought it was really quirky and imaginative to use such a big part of Huw’s childhood in the day, ” Huw's father Ian told South Wales Evening Post.
The couple are heading to London for their honeymoon.
“We’ll be going there by train, and not by tractor!”, Huw jokingly added.
