FORGET a Rolls Royce or stretch limousines, Spalding man Shane Johnson chose a far more unusual mode of transport to get him to the church on Saturday – a Quadtrac tractor.
Agricultural engineer Shane (25) and best man Ben Ford arrived at St Mary’s Church, Pinchbeck, on the tractor, loaned to him for the special day by employers Pecks.

Bride Helen Spicer (28) knew all about the wacky mode of transport and even boarded the tractor with her new husband to travel to their reception at the Woodlands Hotel in Spalding.

She said: “Shane’s loved tractors since he was a little boy and he used to go out on the farm.

“He let me have everything I wanted for the wedding and so I agreed to let him arrive on a tractor.

“I did go on it with him to the Woodlands, not very lady-like, but Ben helped me with my dress.

“It was something really unusual and we’ve got some great photographs.”

The couple, who have been together more than six years, attracted plenty of attention when the tractor parked up outside the church.

Helen, who is assistant manager of Baker’s Oven, in Spalding, added: “There were people stopping and taking photos and beeping their horns as they went past. The reaction was amazing. We had a fantastic day, everything was perfect – even the weather.”

Helen and Shane will be jetting off on honeymoon to Belek in Turkey.
