Hay bale statues point way to wedding

IT was all about hay bales, bobcats and tractors at Warren and Laura Pengelly's unique wedding.

The bride and groom celebrated with a country-style wedding, with Warren and the groomsmen arriving in the bucket scoop of a bobcat and Laura and her bridesmaids travelling in style on hay bales in a trailer towed by a tractor.

"We had a real hay bale-style wedding," Laura said.

"We had two big hay bale statues of a bride and groom which were put out on the highway so everyone knew where to go."

The couple had their ceremony and reception at the Boyne Valley Discovery Centre on October 4.

Eighty family and friends gathered with them to celebrate, some travelling from Townsville, Brisbane and Mount Isa.

"Everyone loved it; they all said it was a unique wedding," Laura said.

"Everything was perfect, that's the only word we can describe it."

The bridal party consisted of friends and family, including Warren and Laura's children.

There were four bridesmaids, including Warren's daughter Mariah Pengelly, 16, and his son Daniel Pengelly, 17, was one of the three groomsmen.

Laura's daughter Shawna Lindley, 12, was the flower girl and the couple's son Noah Pengelly, 4, was the page boy.

The newlyweds have been together for eight years. They honeymooned at Gili Air Island.
