A junk food craving bride treated her guests to a McDonald’s after her husband went on his own on their wedding day.
Antoinette Sullivan, 28, had spent months dieting to fit into her white dress for the bigf day when she tied the knot with Miles, 23, on Friday.
But she was left stunned when her new husband was ‘kidnapped’ after the ceremony and taken paintballing by his pals.
Deciding to have her own fun, she took the rest of the wedding party to the fast food restaurant in Hereford and tucked into burger and chips.
Beauty therapist Antoinette said: “When Miles went off with his mates I thought to myself, well if he can have his fun then I can I have mine.
“We laughed about it but my friends said I should have gone mad but I don’t care, it was a great day and I’d been craving junk food after months of dieting.
“It was the best burger I’d ever eaten and the best way to mark the day. It was perfect and typical of me and Miles.
“We’re best friends as well as husband and wife and we never stop each other doing what we want to do.
“He wanted to go paintballing with his mates and I wanted a burger and chips and that’s what we did.”
The couple, who have four children, tied the knot in a secret ceremony in front of just 15 guests in Hereford Town Hall last week.
But minutes after they said their vows Miles left his new wife to go paintballing with his pals.
Antoinette and her friends went to a nearby pub before the bride, who was still wearing her white wedding dress, strolled into the busy city cent McDonald’s.
Despite the stunned looks, she polished off a quarter pounder burger with fries and mozzarella sticks – before meeting back up with Miles for an evening bash.
Antoinette said: “We wanted the main ceremony to be more secretive in front of just a few people, mainly kids.
“We got married at 12pm and had the photos at 12.45pm and went to a pub for a celebration drink.
“I saw Miles talking to his mates and he came across looking sheepish and said ‘the lads have organised my stag do for today’.
“At first I thought he was joking but then I just said ‘go and have fun’. To be honest I was relieved because I was starving and didn’t want some poncy wedding day anyway.
“Me and the girls went over the road to the pub and I took the kids to McDonald’s.
“Everyone in the restaurant said congratulations. It was a lovely day and I’ve never laughed so hard in my life.
“I met up with Miles in the evening and we had a great party with our friends.
“People spend way too much on weddings and there was no way I wanted to spend an obscene amount on something like this.
“We just wanted to do it in our own way and for ourselves. We are not traditionalists.”
Roofer Miles added: “I didn’t have a stag do because we did it all at such short notice.
“After the ceremony the boys told me they were kidnapping me to go paintballing.
“I asked Antoinette first of course but she was great about it. We’re like that as a couple. I love her to bits.
“I must have the best wife in the world to let me leave her in her dress and go off on my stag do.”
The couple left for a honeymoon in Tenby in Wales but left after a day because they were bored and spent the weekend at Alton Towers.
