The couple were heartbroken when their original venue cancelled twice in just twelve weeks because of the pandemic.

The lovebirds were racing to find a replacement due to the failing health of Melissa's father.

Luckily, Melissa's boss of six years, Kate Walker, who owns and operates the McDonalds in Motherwell, came to the rescue.

The franchise owner agreed to host their reception, which will be celebrated after the couple get hitched on Saturday.

Shannon told the Daily Record: “We’ve had so much back and forth, with venues and dates having to be cancelled due to COVID restrictions – we’re just delighted Kate and her team have agreed to host our special day."

“It’s so important to us that Mel’s dad can see us get married and McDonald’s have helped make that possible.”

“We’ve been looking forward to this day for so long."

The Covid-secure venue will be set with staff serving Big Macs, Mozzarella Dippers and ice cream sundaes - some of the couple's favourite menu items.

Kate said: “We were delighted when they asked us to use the restaurant, especially after hearing the trouble they’d had trying to secure a venue and a date."

“Mel has been a valued part of my team for six years now and it’s great to be able to give something back as a thank you for all her hard work."
