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.
The mother of two's boyfriend, who assisted with the wedding preparations, was present at the occasion. After the union, Cunningham changed her name to Kate Rose Elder, bearing a new name after her new 'husband.'
It was gathered that local residents have been protesting against the plans to build a road through the park and most had stated that it was the destruction of a valued green space. There are hopes that Cunningham's union with the tree will halt the plans.
