The couple said in a statement, “We’re over the moon to have been selected for the first ever KFC wedding and having the Colonel present on our big day took us back to the first meal we shared together – KFC." They later told TODAY Australia, "the reactions we’ve had and the feedback we’ve had has been extraordinary"--the couple surprised their friends and family with the event. People hoping to marry the same way as the Canns can still request an official KFC wedding before May 2020 at
