BBC announces a wedding themed reality show in the UK

MUMBAI: UK pubcaster BBC One has commissioned a new primetime series in which engaged couples volunteer to put all the plans for their wedding day into the hands of their nearest and dearest - only getting to see the results, including the wedding dress, on the big day itself.

Whose Wedding Is It Anyway? is a five-part series being made by Lion TV. It will give both sides of the family a unique opportunity to genuinely get to know each other.

The relatives will be given a helping hand by a team of experts led by Nick Knowles, stylist Hannah Sandling and wedding expert James Love. The experts will be there to ensure that the big day runs smoothly, on time and on budget, and be better than the happy couple could have imagined in their wildest dreams.

Knowles said, "It is supposed to be the happiest day of your life but very often the stresses and strains of organisation and family feuds can make it one of the most trying. We remove the bride and groom from this stress and ramp up all the pressure on the two families by forcing them to make all the decisions with all the consequences you would expect."

At the start of the week, Nick will meet the bride and groom to learn about their hobbies, favourite food and colours, personal preferences and outlook. This crucial meeting will be the happy couple's only input into the elements chosen by our team. From then on, the couple's own wedding budget will be handed over to their friends and family who will be responsible for making things happen.

With only five full days to make all the arrangements, Nick Knowles will pull out all the stops and, where necessary, bring in additional expertise to work alongside the family members to make the wedding day special – from top florists, cake makers, DJs, public speakers, bands, artists, to entertainers and jewellers.

The show will build to the day of the wedding where each of the elements will be revealed to the couple for the first time – along with the odd surprise for both viewers and couple.

The series producer and director Martin Bisiker said, "A wedding always contains a heady mix of emotion, drama, humour and ceremony but, with the entire process taking just five days to organise, it's not just the wedding day that becomes the big moment in the film.

"It's interesting to see how different families and friends react to a range of tasks throughout the course of the week when there's just one objective – a perfect wedding."
