Happy Meal toys, Big Macs after a few many drinks in the pub and a no-questions-asked toilet stop - these are the ways most of us interact with a McDonald's.

However there is a niche population of the world that doesn't want to get married in a stately home, hotel, castle, or even their own back garden. No, for them, they want to hold their wedding under the bright flourescent lights and wipe-clean counter of their local fast food joint.

Hong Kong is the latest nation to join McDonald's growing roster of 15 restaurants where couples can tie the knot. And not just weddings - anniversaries, engagements and bridal showers.

Steve And Emily Asher Who Got Hitched In The UK

If you think we're making this up, we aren't. The decision has come at the request of the customers, apparently.

In an email to CNBC, McDonald's spokeswoman Jessica Lee in an email: 'We started the program because many customers tell us that McDonald's is where they first started dating...McDonald's is where their love stories grew. This connection is exactly why they want to hold their wedding parties and even anniversary parties at McDonald's—to relive sweet beginnings and bring their romantic story full circle."

CNBC said: "The company offers four separate wedding packages for the betrothed, topping out at HK$9,999 or about US $1,290. The bargain party option clocks in at about HK$2,888 or £170.

"The deluxe version includes a 2-hour venue rental, McDonaldland character gifts for 50 guests, 50 invites, wedding gifts, a pair of McD's balloon wedding rings, bridal bouquet, apple pie cake display, Crystal McDonald's house, decorations, a MC and more."

If you're thinking, wow, I wish we could do this in the UK, then it's your lucky day: one couple already has. 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.
