Groom’s Mower Wedding Entrance: Usually, the bridge will make the show-stopping entrance on her wedding day, however one groom from Co Down had a different idea.
Scott Watson has become a social media hit after his unusual wedding day entrance was posted on Facebook.
A greenkeeper by trade, the 23-year-old thought it would be fitting for himself and his groomsmen to make their entrance on the main tool of his trade – a ride-on lawn mower.
And what better soundtrack to accompany the footage than Scott’s favourite song and country music fan favourite, Hit The Diff.
The brilliant footage, taken by the couple’s wedding videographers Formally Casually Video Productions, has racked up more than 100,000 views on Facebook.
Speaking to Belfast Live, the Annahilt native said the entrance was his little input into the special day when he married long-term partner Emma Coulter.
He explained: “I’m a greenkeeper by trade, so lawn mowers and tractors are what I spend my life on, so I thought it would be something different for the big day.
“Emma basically planned the whole wedding and I just said yes to whatever she wanted so this was my one idea that I wanted to do on the day.
“I had seen other videos of boys arriving on tractors and things so I thought the lawn mowers would be something different and with the help of a friend of ours who runs a hire company we were able to get all the lawn mowers the same colour and the vintage tractor in the middle to set things off.”
The couple, who live with their two daughters in Saintfield , married on December 16, but the grand entrance didn’t go completely without a hitch.
Scott added: “Where that wee church is in Inch, it’s down a wee lane so to get the shot of us arriving we drove up to the brow of the hill and turned round to get us coming down.
“But as we reached the top of the hill, a couple of the lawn mowers ran out of petrol so it was a whole session to get them filled up and get us back down to the church.
“I think the reaction [on social media] has been class, it’s mad, Emma can’t believe how many people have watched it, I think the last time we looked it was 104,000, crazy. We haven’t got the full Wedding video yet so we’re excited to see it all together.”
