McDonald's Wedding Reception

Posted by Rachel Donnelly in News Strange on July 31, 2013

A fast food-loving couple celebrated their love of junk grub by holding their wedding reception at McDonald’s.

Steven Asher, 28, and his new wife Emily Marshall, 21, tied the knot on Saturday, and then headed to their local McDonald’s for a £150 fast-food feast in a bid to make their day “as memorable as possible”. 

The couple arrived in a stretch limo and dined with 33 guests in a roped-off area at their local branch in Cribbs Causeway, Bristol. Emily tucked into a chicken nugget meal with coke for her wedding breakfast, while Steven had the Chicken Legend meal with a strawberry milkshake. 

Warehouse worker Steven said: “It was a great day and everyone enjoyed themselves – everyone loves McDonald’s, don’t they?”

Emily said: “I got quite a few people staring at me but I didn’t care. It was my big day and I was there to enjoy myself.” 

The couple were treated to a bottle of champagne by McDonald’s bosses but had to save it for later as the diner is not licensed.

Lost and Found: Wedding jewellery found on beach after two days

Posted by Rachel Donnelly in News Strange on July 30, 2013

A mother-of-two has amazingly found both her wedding and engagement rings two days after losing them on a crowded beach.   

Laura Curry thought she had seen the last of her rings after she left them on busy Poldhu Cove; one of the largest beaches on the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall. However, after making a desperate plea for a metal detector on Facebook, she was able to return to the beach and search for them. 

Laura, from Millbrook in Cornwall, took the rings off (worth £3000) and put them into an inside pocket of a beach tent before putting sun cream on her children. She believes the rings were lost when she shook sand out of the tent before leaving to go home. It wasn’t until four hours later at a party with friends when she realised the rings were missing. She rummaged through the car and the beach tent, but there was no sign of the rings. Later she drove back to the beach and spent 40 minutes searching in vain. 

'I had to tearfully return home to Millbrook and explain to my husband that I'd lost them. 'He was understandably irritated with me,' she said. Adding to her anguish was the fact the rings were particularly meaningful; Laura helped to design her engagement ring, and a friend made the wedding band. 

In a last-ditch effort, and without much hope, Laura and her husband Paul put a post on Facebook asking for the loan or hire of a metal detector. The couple were given two metal detectors, but were not able to return to the beach until two days later and Laura was sure all hope of finding the rings was gone. After several hours of searching, Laura was stunned to see her wedding ring sticking out of the sand. After another hour of looking, and with help from other families on the beach, Paul found Laura’s engagement ring. 

Laura was shocked at how lucky she was to find not one but both of her rings, and said: 'It's incredible really that they were there two days later. Anybody could have picked them up from the sand or the tide and waves could have swept them away or even totally buried them. 'It's a fantastic result.'

Married Twice In One Day

Posted by Rachel Donnelly in News Strange on August 15, 2012

A young couple had to get married twice in one day after a bungling registrar forgot to ask the bride to say ‘I do’ the first time around. 

Kelly Sweetman and Nathan Rees from Cardiff were overjoyed when they tied the knot, but their wedding planner swiftly broke the news that Kelly hadn't said any of her marital vows during the service, and therefore it would not have been legally binding.

Although confused, the couple didn't realise the mistake and carried on. They signed the register and were about to have their pictures taken, when the wedding planner overheard the couple's guests saying the bride hadn't said her vows. After the service ended, the hotel was forced to call the County Hall and get the registrar to return while the alter was re-decorated and guests reseated.

The service was carried out a second time and the pair were officially declared man and wife.


Woman Seeks Groom for Fully Paid Wedding

Posted by Rachel Donnelly in News Strange on August 08, 2012

Meet Anita Chakra Burtty, a 42-year-old astrologist from Sydney, Australia. She is a single woman that has planned and paid in full for her wedding in April - despite having no potential groom. However, she believes that she will find her perfect match in October or November of this year.

She added that she is '100 percent' convinced that she will meet her ideal man and has even purchased her wedding dress, booked the florist, and booked a barbeque reception in the beach suburb of Coogee. 

She is so convinced that she will find a groom this year she even asked her best friend Jeremy to change his own wedding date (with an actual bride) in order to avoid a clash with hers.

Any takers?!

Call me, maybe?
