A BRIDE fulfilled a lifetime’s dream by enjoying her first meal as a married woman at McDonald’s.
Sammie and Richard Trueman tied the knot in their home town of St Helens, Merseyside, on August 25.
But they missed out on the £2,000 buffet at the nearby reception that followed as they were too busy socialising and dancing – leaving them starving by its end.
Retail manager Sammie, 26, said: “Ever since I was 14 years old I had always said that I wanted to eat in McDonald's on my wedding day, I just can't believe that we actually did it.
"Richard and I decided to get married at a registry office at 5pm and afterwards we went straight to our reception at a nearby hotel.
"We actually had a really good deal for our reception, it included canapes and prosecco for 40 day guests on arrival and then a hot and cold buffet for 100 evening guests which cost £2,017.
"But sadly we didn't get to try any of it, the night went so fast and we were just too busy speaking to our guests and enjoying the music that we didn't get chance to eat.
"The party lasted until around 12:30am and by 1am we were both absolutely starving.
"After saying our goodbyes we walked from the hotel to McDonald's with my maid of honour and her boyfriend.
"It was only a few doors down from our hotel which was ideal and meant I didn't have to walk far in my dress and heels.”
Sammie added: "People in there didn't seem overly impressed, but they did tell us to sit down and they brought our food over to us which was a nice touch.
"I ordered a McChicken sandwich meal and Richard ordered his favourite, a double cheeseburger meal.
"After about half an hour, finally feeling full, we left and went back to our hotel.
"We are still laughing about it now, and whenever we tell the story to friends and family they find it really amusing."
