You’ve heard of a destination wedding – but have you heard of a ceremony taking place on the back of a truck?

That’s exactly what happened in South Africa after a clip emerged of an entire wedding party seated in the back of an open bed truck.

The event – rumoured to have taken place on the streets of Limpopo – even featured décor in the form of balloons and flowers displayed on the truck!

SOUTH AFRICANS AMUSED BY TRUCK CEREMONY

The video of the “truck wedding” was posted on the Facebook page of the City Of Joburg.

In the 30 second clip, the bride and groom can be seen together seated on their wedding loveseat whilst their bridal party, consisting of bridesmaids, groomsmen and several guests are captured sitting in individual seats in the back of the truck.

Many social media users were amused at the sighting. Comments under the post read…

Can only be in Limpopo

These people are creative

Nice and unique

The driver must be a pastor or local sangoma because they real do trust him

Is this a strategy to cut wedding costs?

Others were concerned for the safety of the wedding party…

All I can say is “Newton’s Laws of Motion”

This is very dangerous..it will end in tears

With all the potholes, that truck would have toppled over. Happily never after

The City of Joburg also issued a warning to residents to refrain from practising such events. It said:“We urge residents to use vehicles for their intended purposes and stay safe”.
