In honoring an ancient tradition that the bride’s feet shouldn’t touch the ground during the journey from home to the ceremony, a Chinese couple got married in mid-air in two tractor digger buckets.

Wedding organizer, Fan Yalin, said the usual way of following the tradition was for the groom to carry the bride in his arms from the car.

However, this couple wanted to do something different and being that the groom’s job is selling heavy machinery, his colleagues came up with the idea of having them stand in two tractor buckets.

And so it went, with the bride and two bridesmaids in one and the husband and two best men in the other. The couple, who took the words, ‘until death do us part’ a bit more to heart than most, told the media that they loved the ceremony, describing it as “dangerous but sweet.”

“It was really cool to have a tractor bucket marriage. Very interesting.” said one of the guests.

Whatever floats your boats or keeps your tractor bucket in the air!

Kudos to the happy couple! May they fly together for a long time to come!
