A fast food restaurant might not be everyone’s pick for a romantic venue but that didn’t stop a Bristol couple from celebrating their wedding reception at their local McDonald’s on Saturday.
Having arrived from the ceremony at the Bristol registry office in an ice-white stretch limo, restaurant regulars Steve and Emily Asher spent £150 on dinner for their 33 guests at the Cribbs Causeway branch of the fast food chain just off the M5 motorway.
According to SWNS, the 28-year-old groom, who works for a chilled food firm, celebrated his nuptials with a Chicken Legend meal (£5.09), while the bride, 21, polished off a box of chicken McNuggets (£4.29).
The manager of the restaurant, who had kindly roped off an area within the restaurant for the guests, gave the happy couple of bottle of champagne, but told them they were prohibited from drinking it on the premises.
“We were both shaking throughout the ceremony, we were so nervous,” said Steve after thefeast, adding: “Everyone seemed to find our reception at McDonalds really interesting.”
His wife admitted she “did get quite a few people staring” but insisted she “didn’t care” as it was her “big day”.
When questioned why he’d opted for the fast food chain for his reception, Steve quipped: “Everyone loves McDonald’s, don’t they?”
