A couple had an uplifting wedding day after arriving at the reception – in a 40-tonne CRANE.
Richard Sheehan, 29, and Robyn Harrison, 26, ditched the traditional wedding car in favour of the bright red industrial vehicle.
The crane was polished to perfection, wrapped in ribbons with a ‘just married’ sign on the back.
They used the vehicle to travel between their ceremony at Old Forde House in Newton Abbot, Devon, to the reception at the Old Rydon Inn in Kingsteignton.
It was provided by Richard’s father, Brian Sheehan, who runs Devon Lifting Services with his three sons Richard, Christopher, 31, and David, 27.
Brian, 67, said: “The registrar was quite surprised to see it outside the wedding room, she said it was a first.
“There were loads of people taking photos of it because they hadn’t seen anything like it before.
“Richard and Robyn were beaming.
“Everyone at the Rydon came out into the garden when they arrived, to have a look at it. It was a bit of a display.”
