Every bride wants her wedding day to be a memorable event and this was no exception for 48-year-old Jenny Hanley, whose big day was certainly one to remember. The bride turned heads as she rolled to the ceremony in a recycling trolley.
Jenny rode to Brakpan Department of Home Affairs to say 'I do' to her partner of several months, Alf Biddulph, in a trolley used by informal recyclers to collect recyclable materials. Staying true to theme, Jenny's bouquet was made from newspaper and other recyclable items and a large colourful paper flower pinned to her white wedding dress complemented the look.
Her bridesmaid, 4-year-old granddaughter, Nevaeh Wessels, looked cute in a dress made from the black plastic.
The unconventional wedding theme is a result of Jenny’s passion for recycling and stems from her days living on the street. After her spouse passed away two years ago, Jenny was homeless for months.
She earned money by taking odd jobs. Her food came from local soup kitchens.
