Chinese couple Li Wenhua and Yan Hongxia decided to get married while being swarmed by bees. The couple has been bee-keeping for the last 25 years and thought having a bee swarm would be fitting for their wedding.

The couple was able to attract the bees by planting a queen bee in each of their clothing, which was followed by a mass swarming.

"It was an amazing feeling to have a carpet of living bees moving over my body. I could feel them as they moved around — it was amazing," says new Bride Yan Hongxia. Stats for Insect Swarm Weddings Trending: Older & Average
