'If it's not red leave it in the shed' bride and her bridesmaids drive themselves to wedding in matching tractors

Zoe Brennan-Whitmore

Every woman dreams of their wedding day from when they are a little girl. It is something that we fantasize about, the dashing prince charming, the one of a kind dress and the horse and carriage.

However, Aisling McCarey from Co Monoghan had very different plans for herself on her wedding day, and dreamt of arriving to the church in something a little more, red. A bright red Massey Ferguson to be exact.

Aisling McCarey and Mark Graham tied the not on January 4 after nine years together. They met in somewhat unusual circumstances when Mark was driving down the M50 in his tractor and Aisling got his number from a mutual friend in order to get a lift. So, it seems tractors have always been a part of this love story.

On their wedding day Aisling's childhood dreams came true when she drove to the church in her beloved Massey Ferguson with her father in the passenger seat and her bridal party following behind in matching tractors.

The groom, who is a professional truck driver, also decided to add his own flair and arrived at the church with his groomsmen in two shiny lorries.

Videographer for the day Manuel Lavery told Independent.ie that most wedding guests weren't surprised at all to see Aisling arrive in a tractor "people were just saying "oh that's Aisling for you."

Just when you think you've seen it all!
