Antoinette and Miles Sullivan expected to spend their full wedding day together, but his groomsmen had other plans — after the ceremony, they “kidnapped” him for a paintballing bachelor party.
The Sullivans got married in front of 15 guests at Hereford Town Hall in England on Nov. 5. Miles told The Mirror that they planned their wedding on short notice, so he didn’t have a bachelor party before it. The impromptu wedding-day “stag do” was his friends’ way of making up for it.
Instead of descending into a rage spiral, Antoinette did what she really wanted to do, which was go to McDonald’s.
“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,” she said.
She brought her friends and her four children to the McDonald’s across the street and enjoyed a hamburger, fries, and mozzarella sticks as people congratulated her on her big day.
After their separate activities, Miles and Antoinette hosted a party for their friends that night.
“People spend way too much on weddings and there was no way I wanted to spend an obscene amount on something like this,” Antoinette told the paper.
“We just wanted to do it in our own way and for ourselves. We are not traditionalists.”
“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,” Antoinette added.
“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.”
For his part, Miles is aware that he has a world-class wife. “I asked Antoinette first of course but she was great about it. We’re like that as a couple. I love her to bits,” he told The Mirror. “I must have the best wife in the world to let me leave her in her dress and go off on my stag do.”
