Sept. 27 (UPI) — An Australian couple celebrated their love for each other — as well as their favorite store — by holding their wedding at a Costco store in New South Wales.
Sue Berkley and Eli Bob tied the knot Saturday at the Costco Crossroads in Casula, a suburb of Sydney.
Berkley, clad in purple, walked down the tire aisle to meet Bob, who was waiting at the alter — in the food court.
“I get to go to Costco on my wedding day, it’s just awesome,” Berkeley told A Current Affair at the wedding rehearsal.
The wedding gathered 90 guests at the store, which charged only $10 per guest to provide pizza, meat pies, soft drinks, and a massive Costco cake for the celebration.
“Where else can I get married to the one I love, in the place that I love, surrounded by the people I love?” Berkeley said.
The wedding came as a surprise to other shoppers, who posted photos of the unusual set-up on social media.
Store manager Linda Hamill said the wedding was a first for the store.
“I’ve grown up with Costco, I’ve been with the company 30 years, I’ve seen a lot,” Hamill said. “But I’ve never participated in a wedding at Costco.”
The ceremony is believed to be the first Costco wedding in Australia, but similar weddings have previously been held at the chain’s stores in the United States.
