Forget booking a Rolls Royce limousine or a horse drawn carriage for your wedding ride - it's now all about the forklift cavalcade.
That's what one couple in
opted for in a bid to celebrate their shared love for each other and the humble warehouse workhorse. China
Newlyweds Kong Qingyang and Shen Likun first met when groom Kong was working as a forklift driver and bride Shen was working as a forklift salesperson.
To commemorate their special connection they chose to commandeer a forklift parade in their home town of
Xintai, . Hebei Province
Starting at 8am the brightly decorated forklifts motored from the groom's house and then broke with tradition to pick up the bride-to-be.
Naturally it took a while for them to arrive at the church, with a top speed of eight miles per hour limiting progress, but the vows were exchanged just after the couple arrived at 11:30am.
Following her unusual entrance, the blushing bride Shen said: 'I love him (Kong) as a person. No matter what vehicle he picks me up in I would marry him. I will remember this parade forever.'.
