BURY COUPLE SAY ‘I DOUGH!’ WITH ‘PIZZA-SELFIE’ WEDDING GIFT FROM DOMINO'S

BURY COUPLE SAY ‘I DOUGH!’ WITH ‘PIZZA-SELFIE’ WEDDING GIFT FROM DOMINO'S

  • Pizza lovers, Kieran and Natasha see their faces immortalised on a Domino’s pizza as a unique wedding gift
  • Pizza masterpiece created by celebrity portrait artist, Nathan Wyburn

Domino’s Pizza super-fans Kieran and Natasha Morris, newlyweds from Bury, Greater Manchester, received a unique wedding gift from their favourite pizza company – a ‘selfie’ portrait on a pizza.

Domino’s, the local pizza delivery expert, commissioned celebrity portrait artist Nathan Wyburn to recreate a ‘selfie’ photo taken by the couple and transform it into a pizza masterpiece. The portraits were designed across two large 13 inch Domino’s pizza bases, with the couple’s faces created entirely from traditional pizza toppings, including tomato puree, ham and sweetcorn. The portraits took almost three hours to create.

The couple tied the knot on Saturday 18th January 2014 at Samlesbury Hall in Preston, where the ‘pizza-selfie’ was carefully delivered to them at their reception from the Domino’s Bamber Bridge store on Station road.

The couple first contacted Domino’s Pizza to share details of their upcoming wedding and to request a special pizza to surprise their guests – as their friends and family love to joke about how much pizza they eat.

The groom, Kieran Morris said: “The pizza-selfie portraits were like nothing we could have imagined – definitely our most unusual wedding present! We were completely overwhelmed to see our faces on the pizzas, and the guests absolutely loved them.  We order Domino’s pizza all the time - so it’s felt right to incorporate them into the most special day of our lives.”

The happy couple, both born and bred in Bury, have been together for seven years. Kieran is a support worker, and Natalie is a student at Salford University. The couple are soon to leave for their honeymoon, where they will be staying in a nature reserve near Reykjavik in Iceland.

Ahmed Faraz Store Manager at the Bamber Bridge Domino’s commented: “We are really excited that Domino’s are able to be a part of Kieran and Natasha’s big day in such a unique way. It’s been really fun working behind the scenes to recreate the pizza-selfies for such big fans and we wish them all the best for the future.”
