A 34-year-old woman and mother of two, Kate Cunningham, has 'tied the knot' with a tree located at Rimrose Valley Park, Merseyside, England.

The bizarre, grand nuptials were held on 7 September with family and friends present to witness and celebrate the occasion.

According to reports, Cunningham, who hails from Melling in Merseyside and works as an environmentalist, decided to 'marry' the tree located in Rimrose Valley Park to protest against plans of a three-mile dual carriageway set to be built through the park.

Photos from the ceremony have been circulating the internet and reflecting how far a human would go to protect the life of a tree.
