If you’ve been to plenty of wedding this year, you’ve likely eaten a lot of the same meals.
Chicken ballotine, braised steak, and of course – if you’re a vegetarian – plenty of mushroom risottos and tomato pasta dishes.
While there’s nothing wrong meat and two veg, some couples like to differ from the traditional wedding catering blueprint – take Victoria and Tom Browne, for example.
When they were planning their wedding, they initially looked at different catering options for their wedding breakfast.
However, the date approached, and they were still procrastinating on the final option. So, they went with their hearts and opted to feed their guests a mammoth feast of Domino’s pizzas.
Victoria, 26, said: ‘Most people know me and Tom just don’t do things traditionally.
‘I didn’t want traditional sandwiches or anything at the wedding, I wanted something that stood out.
‘We actually kept joking saying “shall we have Domino’s?” but as it got closer and we didn’t have any food plans we started seriously considering it and I emailed Domino’s asking the question.’
Her local branch were more than happy to oblige, and after the ceremony staff delivered a total of 30 large pizzas, 20 garlic breads, 20 boxes of chicken strips and 20 boxes of wedges.
The couple, of St Austell, Cornwall, are also big fans of the infamous Domino’s garlic dip, so had plenty of that on hand, too.
The total for the whole thing was £350, which – given that other wedding breakfasts could run into the thousands – is quite the steal.
They hadn’t actually told anyone their plans, however, so on the big day itself, Victoria and her 29-year-old husband said that staff came ‘strolling in and shocked everybody.’
Victoria continued: ‘I was so paranoid about whether they were actually going to be able to do it that I went in the day before and said “are you are all aware of my order for tomorrow?”
‘They were pretty good. It all came in piping hot and the staff were quite happy to stand and have a photo with me.
‘People are still gobsmacked with it, people think that as a buffet you have to have like sandwiches and stuff and I don’t really like pasties and I’m not picking them because everyone else likes them.’
It went down a storm in the end, with Victoria saying that any naysayers had their doubt quickly withdrawn when the smell of fresh pizza and garlic bread filled their wedding venue.
The bride said that people turned to praising the couple throughout the day for their unique decision and there wasn’t a displeased guest in sight.
‘I was surprised at the amount they delivered, I thought “we’re going to have to take this home and have it for a couple of weeks”,’ she said.
‘We would have ended up having to bin it which would have been devastating for me.
‘I would normally order it at least once a week and I definitely won’t be for a little bit. I don’t want to see anymore pizzas for a while.’
