Andrew Starbuck and his new bride, Kerry, left the church in an unusual way after they got married recently in Farnsfield, Nottinghamshire.
Andrew works for machinery manufacturer Grimme UK. “They might not make a tractor, but they do make a machine with an engine, steering wheel and seat,” he says. “This is what Grimme came up with for the big day!”
The self-propelled potato harvester (minus the modifications and with a topper on the front again) will be harvesting spuds this autumn.
