Lovestruck farmers Michael Hanson and Hayley Morgan said ‘I moo’ during a cow-themed wedding.

After meeting at a young farmers'€™ event, the couple wanted to tie the knot in a way that celebrated their country lives“ and, after two-and-a-half years together, they certainly did it in style.

Dressed in a pair of white wellies, the bride arrived at the church, in her home town of Llandefalle, Powys, aboard a 2.8-tonne tractor. After the service, it transported the happy couple to a muddy field at Hayleyâ€'s parents'€™ farm where they had a wedding portrait taken with a herd of cattle.

The pair, from Eardisland, Herefordshire, had a British Blue-themed wedding cake on their big day in August.

And at the reception, guests, who were directed to tables named after  different cows, enjoyed a four-course dinner of, you guessed it, roast beef.

The couple honeymooned in the US state of Texas, the beef farming capital of the world,€“ and spent three weeks touring farming enterprises.

Hayley, 31, said: "€˜We didn'€™t want to be all prim and proper – we just wanted to be us and what we do every day.

€˜I'€™ve never been to a wedding like ours but everyone said how great it was. We are really glad we did it the way we wanted to."

Michael, 26, and Hayley,€“ who also runs a part-time business selling rugs and accessories made from British hide, plan to spend their wedding money on a new herd of British Blue cattle.

Hayley added: "€˜I always wanted to run a cattle-related business. This is my passion."€™
