Forget a plush limo or a polished vintage car, it was a John Deere that dropped groom James Donaghy to the church on the biggest day of his life.

The Corkman (27) and his best man drove through his native Carrigaline in the decked out tractor, ahead of his wedding to Tipperary woman Stacey Burke (29) last weekend.

The unusual means of transport was an obvious choice for the groom, who said the tractor decorated in streamers drew attention from all corners of the town.

“The whole village of Carrigaline were stopped looking at the tractor Friday, it really has people talking,” James said speaking to Independent.ie.

“Stacey arrived in a vintage car with her dad and myself and the best man arrived in the tractor.

“I have been in tractors since I was 3-years-old and work at silage every year with Emmanuel Barry Agri Contractors , who lent us the tractor for the big day,” he said.

The happy pair, who have been together for six years, posed in front of the tractor for their wedding photos, taken by photographer Mark O’Shea.

Although the bride was promised a spin in the John Deere, the bad weather meant that she missed out on the dream ride.

The couple are currently enjoying their honeymoon in Lanzarote.
