'Bee wedding' may have followed buzzing stag party

24 Jul 2009

Many grooms would probably prefer their stag party to be buzzing rather than the wedding.

However, that may not have been the case for a Chinese couple who recently got hitched while covered in bees.

Li Wenhua and Yan Hongxia - who keep the insects in Ning'an as part of their work for the local forestry commission - both wore clothes housing thousands of the creatures during the ceremony.

"It was the obvious choice for us for our big day. I also wanted to set a world record for the biggest coat of bees," Yan said.

The pair each placed a queen bee on their body in order to encourage swarms more to blanket them.

Explaining the decision, the bride stated she had "always loved" the yellow and black critters, adding covering herself with them was a "new experience".

According to the Australian Times, many of the guests at the nuptials preferred to keep a safe distance away – perhaps to avoid a nasty sting.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19281605-ADNFCR
