Wellington, September 21 : An ecologically conscious bride has taken a bus on her wedding day to reach the marked venue.
Anna Chisnell, who went in No. 5 'Red Bus' with her father, bridesmaid and two flower girls for a noon wedding, considers it important to use public transport since it is environmental friendly.
Moreover, the 19-year-old Christchurch bride prefers her daily ride in the bus since it allows her to unwind during travelling while she enjoys the company of the amiable bus drivers.
"Using the bus is a nice part of my day. I get to relax while travelling to where I need to go, so why not make it part of my wedding?" the NZPA quoted her as saying.
"Also, the bus route runs straight past the wedding venue, so it just made sense," she added.
The 'Red Bus' company itself is pleased to be a part Chisnell's D-day.
"Red Bus does undertake wedding charters, but this is the first time that any staff can remember that a public bus has been used as an alterative to the bride's wedding car," the 'Red Bus' spokeswoman, Nicky Halligan, said.
