The bouquet came from a company called Dessert Boxes, which ran a competition earlier this year to find a bride who wanted to carry the bouquets at their wedding.

Kirk was chosen from a number of brides-to-be.

"When we spoke to Paige, we knew she was our winner," a spokeswoman for the company told BuzzFeed News. "She was so fun and light-hearted, and we knew she’d rock the bouquets as she walked down the aisle."


Kirk kept the bouquets a secret from her bridesmaids until the day of the wedding, the spokeswoman said.

“My bridal party was so excited when they found out they were walking down the aisle with donuts," Kirk said in a statement. "My husband and I wanted to have fun at our wedding and we figured, why not have donuts? Everyone loves donuts."

The newlywed told the BBC that she and her new husband, Steven, wanted to make their wedding stand out.

"We wanted the wedding to be a bit different and really reflect who we are as a couple," the 23-year-old said.

Kirk told the BBC she has been shocked by the reaction to her bouquets, which have made international headlines.

She said everyone at her wedding, from the venue to the guests, loved them too.

"Brides should be a bit more relaxed and have fun," she said.
