A bride’s white wedding ended up rather too white after a snowstorm cut off roads, but she still managed to get herself and guests to the service on time by hiring a convoy of 15 tractors to battle the blizzard.
The region of Corum in northern Turkey was battered by a snowstorm this week, leaving one bride in the small village of Kargi in the district of Mecitozu worrying that she would not make it to the service on time.
When the wedding car was unable to make it through the thick snow to pick up the blushing bride, 22-year-old Melike Uzun, her husband-to-be hatched a plan to save the day.
Together with his brother Adem Arslan, the groom Murat Arslan, 24, organised 15 tractors to pick up the bride and take her and the wedding guests to the ceremony.
In a convoy, the 15 vehicles trundled through the snow-covered streets to the bride’s home where she was duly helped onto a tractor and taken into the village centre to get married to the hero of the day.
The happy couple tied the knot in a street ceremony amid a beautiful wintry scene without further incident.
Adem, the groom’s older brother, told local media: “Due to the harsh conditions, guests could not get to the wedding in their own vehicles, so we thought tractors would be the best solution.”
He added: “It was such a beautiful wedding ceremony. We would like to thank everyone who shared in our happiness.”
