Not your average love story: Pizza restaurant hosts shotgun wedding stunt

Here at APT, we love a good marketing stunt. Pair that with pizza and a happily ever after and you’ve got a winning campaign in our eyes. That’s why we can’t get enough of Pizza Express’ latest Valentine’s adventure.

After seeing the restaurant’s Facebook offer to create a spontaneous marital ceremony for lucky customers this year, friends of a couple who were engaged for over a year decided to go ahead and plan the risky surprise for the pair.

What the couple thought to be a complimentary meal turned out to be a shotgun wedding, complete with a jazz band, confetti and a pretty extensive buffet for guests.

The restaurant is now looking to license a number of its restaurants to become wedding venues following the success of the stunt, and the campaign’s message “Good times. Together,” has us tempted to sign up.
