A groom in China has taken his new bride home from the church in a tractor instead of the more traditional horse-drawn carriage or car.

He also ordered a whole fleet of similar vehicles to carry their friends and family behind.

The convoy of red tractors was spotted passing through Shilpu in east China’s Anhui Province, where amused villagers lined the streets to grab a glimpse of the strange sight.

The groom, Liu Fei, said: ‘It’s to the taste of us young people chasing after fashion to take my bride home by tractor.

‘As a tractor driver, I should not forget my trade.’

He added: ‘We have to rely on tractors and agricultural undertakings to get rich.’

The fleet of farming vehicles were decorated with bows and pink balloons for the couple’s special day, which went off without a hitch.

The bride Zhang Yun also seemed pleased with the unorthodox transport provided, although she did have one awkward moment as she struggled to get down from the high-seated vehicle.
