Mechanic James drives his bride to reception in £100,000 tractor
Bride Danielle Newman and groom James Dring twice stopped the traffic when they were married in Lincoln today.
The couple's wedding service at the New Life Church in Newland at 1pm was followed by a 35-minute drive to the reception - with 30-year-old James at the wheel of a £100,000 John Deere tractor.
It was loaned by his employers DoubleDay of Holbeach, who also provided another top-of-the-range machine for a guard of honour outside the Dower House Hotel at Woodhall Spa.
James, from North Kyme, was brought up on a farm and by his own admission is 'tractor mad'.

Before setting off on the 20-mile drive through city centre traffic and on to the reception, the new Mr and Mrs Dring expressed their delight at the mood of the 100 guests.
"It's been a fantastic day so far and my employers loaning us two tractors is the icing on the cake," said James.
His bride, a 28-year-old deputy nursery manager from Branston near Lincoln, said: "It just had to be a tractor. It has a top speed of 56 kilometres per hour so we won't exactly be going slow."
The future Mrs Dring had already stopped the Newland traffic once after arriving for the service in a VW camper van.
Her sister Sara, the chief bridesmaid, said: "Danielle's loved camper vans since she was little and James is a tractor engineer.
"It looks absolutely brilliant."
Proud dad Dale Newman, 50, an education and development worker with, said: "It's definitely the best day of Danielle's life.
"And she's chosen a great fella in James."
Usher Chris Bee, 29, a schoolfriend of the groom, said: "It's really typical of both James and Danielle because they really are a good match."
