-This is Marrying Mum And Dad.
-Where you organise your parents' wedding.
-That means you're in charge.
-That's so cool.
You can do whatever you want.
Check this out!
Mum and Dad have no idea what you're planning.
But you've only got a few weeks to do it all.
Are you ready for it? Whoo!
Let our parents go.
Never, you filthy sea dogs!
Are your parents ready for it?
I feel like I'm going to cry now.
Will the day be filled with chaos...
-Best thing ever.
On today's show, we've got
two wedding planners hoping to create a big day that'll be a real scream!
But could their surprises be too much for Mum and Dad?
That's a massive one!
-I don't like spiders. I've always had a fear of them.
Since I was little.
Will the wedding become a day of doom or a monster's ball?
We're about to find out, cos we're marrying Mum and Dad.
This is Marrying Mum And Dad, where the kids take charge
of planning their parents' wedding.
Mum and Dad do know they're getting married, but that's all they know.
The plans are kept secret until the big day,
so anything could happen, and Mum and Dad have no say whatsoever.
We're here to help the wedding planners,
but it's up to them to make it a success.
With less than two weeks to go until the wedding,
there's no time to lose.
Let's get this show on the road!
Today, we're in Shropshire, where we've got two planners who
can't wait to put on the weirdest of weddings, Marrying Mum And Dad style.
Meet Charlie and Holly.
I'm Charlie, I'm 12, and I love riding my bike.
Hi, I'm Holly. I'm ten and I like putting make-up on.
Charlie and Holly live with Mum Cathy
and Dad Kerry.
Mum is really embarrassing because, when we have guests round,
she puts her onesie on and, on holiday, she wears fake tan.
The thing about Dad is he likes to think he's cool,
but, on holiday, he did a Barbie Girl dance on stage.
He was going like this...
What do Mum and Barbie Girl - sorry, Dad - have to say about the kids?
I trust them both to give us a very interesting wedding.
'I dread to think what Charlie's got in store.'
'I think Holly would pull it back if it got a bit too crazy,'
but who knows?
Mum and Dad have been together for 14 years,
but have never found quite the right moment to get married.
So, what's been stopping them?
All our money goes into going on holiday. It's the time, isn't it?
-When you're working, you don't get a chance.
With all that lounging around,
Mum and Dad don't exactly look very busy.
No need to worry, though, because now the kids are taking over
and they mean business.
-It's not going to be like a normal white wedding.
I want to pay them back for always telling us off and making us
do stuff around the house.
-It's payback time!
Payback time! This sounds like it should be fun, Naomi.
Let's hope so, Ed.
We really, really want Mum and Dad to get married.
And we want to put on a wedding that they'll never forget.
There's a huge amount for Charlie and Holly to organise,
-like a theme.
-A wedding cake.
-And, of course,
-Mum and Dad's outfits.
-Let's get on with it.
There's not long until the big day, so Mum and Dad need to put down their
golf clubs and hand over control to Charlie and Holly...and fast!
Ladies and gentleman, we are
gathered here on this very windy day to mix things up a bit.
Do you, Mum, allow your children to completely
-and utterly organise a wedding day you'll never forget?
And do you, Dad, accept you'll have absolutely no say in what goes on?
Then, with the joining of hands, I now pronounce you,
Charlie and Holly, completely, 100 per cent officially in charge.
Charlie and Holly are in charge,
and they can't wait to tell us their big idea for the big day.
We've only got two weeks to sort out everything for this wedding.
Mum and Dad have nearly finished playing golf,
so can you fill us in quickly and tell us, have you chosen a theme?
Yeah. It's horror.
-Are you serious? What?
-Horror's a great idea.
-What, are you scared, Naomi?
-Yeah, I get scared really easily.
Well done. You made your first decision.
You've got a theme and I think it's a doozy.
That's our theme sorted.
We're set to go all spooky for Mum and Dad's wedding.
Let's hope they like haunted houses.
Charlie and Holly have their theme,
but weddings normally take months to plan.
We've only got a few weeks to get everything booked.
I think we could do with some inspiration of the spooky sort.
Right, guys, you're probably wondering
-why I made you wear these blindfolds.
I just wanted to get your reaction when you saw this place.
-I thought it might get the wedding planning off to a good start...
..to take you to the spookiest place in Britain.
Loads of people claim they've had supernatural experiences here.
I thought it might inspire us, give us loads of ideas.
Shall we have a little look around?
EVIL LAUGHTER AND SCREAMING
It doesn't get much creepier than this 400-year-old building.
There's a black cat.
Not only does it look pretty spooky...
it's also supposedly one of the most haunted places in the country.
Let's see what's behind the creepy curtain.
It's a scary staircase.
-The ghostly bottom.
That's right! That's the most ghostly bottom I've ever seen!
OK, maybe it's not all scary.
But the atmosphere of this murky manor has definitely got Charlie
and Holly's ideas for the big day flowing.
-What do you like about it?
-It's got like a creepy thing to it.
And the paintings, as well.
How could you make somewhere like this extra spooky?
Cobwebs on the wall, and it'd be really dark in here.
-Yeah and spiders.
-Why do you want loads of spiders?
-Dad hates them.
For me, my worst nightmare would be spiders.
I've always had a fear of them, since I was little.
Well, Dad, it's not just spiders you need to worry about.
-Mum's going to be Bride of Dracula.
-And Dad's going to be Dracula.
So far, so scary.
'And the trip to this creepy old house has also had a more direct
'inspiration on the kids' plans for the big day.'
-So, do you like this place?
-Yeah, it's a good venue.
Cos I brought you here to inspire you, but if you like it that much,
we could actually have the wedding here.
-That's what we'd like.
-Really? You like it that much?
-Yeah, it's a good venue.
Not only has our trip inspired some great plans for a weird wedding,
it looks like, in this place, we've even found our venue for the big day.
'We've got a haunted house for our wedding,
'now we just need a creepy bride and groom.'
'Charlie and Holly have come to a shop that specialises in spooky
'costumes armed with ideas for Mum and Dad's outfits.'
Oh, well, this is classic Dracula, that you're looking for,
-for your dad.
So, yeah... Fake blood, pale face, shirt, cape.
'The kids know exactly what they want Dad to wear,
'and it's not long before we've got a few options to try out.'
-OK, well, shall I go and model them for you?
Always fancied doing a bit of modelling.
'Let the vampire vogueing begin.'
You look like you're wearing kids' pyjamas.
I think it's a bit too small.
I want to suck your blood!
-That's better, actually.
-It's a bit better, yeah.
-That's nice, yeah. I like that.
What about this one with the red cape?
Do you want to see what that looks like? Maybe we can mix
and match them.
-That looks cool, doesn't it?
-Yeah, I like that one.
That one, yeah.
'Dad will be a dapper Dracula on the big day,
'and we've also lined up three ghoulish gowns in his bride's size.'
-What do you think?
-That one's nice.
-Yeah, I like that one.
-It's got the collar on it.
-Wow, so you've just gone for that instantly?
It sounds like we might have our bride and groom's outfits sorted out.
The kids have got creepy costumes,
but this is no fancy dress party, so, next, we're off to another
spooky location to pick up some professional tips on how to
make Mum and Dad look truly terrifying.
-Do you recognise this place?
-Have a good look, cos you should do.
-Oh! Dracula's room.
-Dracula, yeah! This is the set of Young Dracula.
'Young Dracula is the CBBC classic that gives viewers a right fright.'
Vampires be gone!
'The show sinks its teeth into the adventures of the Dracula
'family, after they move to a sleepy Welsh town.'
-Oh! It's Count Dracula's chair!
-This is Count Dracula's chair?
'This spooky old house doubles as the Dracula family home.
'Charlie and Holly seem to be enjoying their behind-the-scenes
'tour, but all this noise has woken up one of the residents.'
What are you doing in my house?
'Clare Thomas stars in the show as Ingrid Dracula.'
Yes, got a problem with that?
Playing a TV vampire means Clare has a few tricks of the trade to
pass onto Charlie and Holly for their spooky wedding.
-These are our fangs that we use on set.
-And you basically just...
sort of...squidge them in like that, and, suddenly, I've got fangs.
-And you can get them for your mum and dad,
cos I think that'd be really cool if they have those on the day.
Adding fangs to Mum and Dad's wedding day vampire outfits
will definitely turn up the fear factor.
'And Charlie and Holly's next stop,
'with Carly from the show's make-up department, should allow them'
to drain the colour from the creepy couple's freaky faces.
I was thinking Mum with a pale face and, like, blue lips.
-And what about Dad?
-He could have a pale face the same, and some fangs.
-Is Mum quite pale naturally?
-Will she mind if we make her even more pale?
-I am just very, very white.
I have to wear fake tan, otherwise I just look ill.
Unlucky, Mum! Vampires aren't known for fake tan.
The kids are keen to see what Dracula's bride might
look like on the big day.
And it seems I'm the perfect...volunteer to be
-I feel a bit pale.
-You do probably look...dead.
-You want some dark around the eyes, yeah?
Carly is available for the wedding day, so it looks like Mum and Dad
are set to look like a bone-chilling bride and groom.
How do you think Mum and Dad are going to react
to having their make-up done like this?
-They are going to laugh.
-Are you sure?
With vampire costumes, fake fangs and moody make-up,
the outfits are sorted for the big day.
'Charlie and Holly are halfway through their plans for Mum
'and Dad's wedding. So far, they've decided on horror as the theme,
'they've found a spooky old haunted house as a venue,
'and they're planning to dress the happy couple as vampires.'
'It's a good job Mum and Dad still don't have a clue
'what they're up to.'
I just want to know what's going on. It's just the not knowing, really.
They give you a little nibble and that's it,
they take it away from you.
'If there's any nibbling to be done, Dad, you're Dracula,
'so you'll be doing it.'
'With Mum and Dad starring in their big day as a vampire bride
'and groom, the kids need to find some suitably spooky
'transport to take them to their haunted house.'
No, not those.
Charlie and Holly's big idea is a Dracula inspired horse
and carriage, so we've come to a farm to find what they need.
'First up, it's off to the stables to make a decision on Dracula's'
'horses for the big day.'
Are these the sort of horses that you wanted to pull the carriage?
-Well, we thought of, like, black ones.
-Yeah, maybe darker ones.
-This is Lexon. He's very big, isn't he?
-ED: Are they spooky enough for you?
All right. You're booked!
'it's off outside to find the perfect ride for a vampire bride.'
Check these out!
-Whoa! These are wicked.
-What do you think, Holly?
I like the seats, but I don't think we'll have flowers.
You're not sure about this one? No.
Carriage one isn't quite grand enough for our ghoulish groom.
Let's hope the second option can stake a claim as Dracula's wheels.
-This one's huge.
-This is a better one.
Well, it's comfier, it's more dark,
it's suitable for having Dracula and Bride of Dracula in it.
-Is this one a thumbs up?
-Transport is sorted! Yes!
Creepy carriage booked, and another tick for our planners.
Our fright fest is looking good, so far,
but Charlie and Holly still need some entertainment for Mum and Dad.
-Oh! Where's the noise of that bell coming from?
'One thing they've mentioned is getting some spiders for the big day,
'so we've come back to our haunted house venue to meet some
So, you said your dad was scared of spiders.
Meet Josh and Lee and their pet spiders.
That's a massive one!
That one's big as well.
Having checked out some of the biggest
and meanest looking arachnids that you'll ever see, Charlie
and Holly have struck upon an...entertaining
idea for the wedding involving Dad and spiders.
You could have three boxes and one of them is a dummy box,
and there'd be three spiders.
Dad has to put his hand in the right two of them
to get the wedding rings out.
-He has to get past the spider.
He thinks they're going to touch his hand, but they wont.
'So, let's get this straight...
'The kids' entertainment for the big day is inviting Dad to get
'hold of the wedding rings by confronting his fear of spiders.
'Sounds easy, right?'
I think, if we're going to make your dad play with them, we should
probably know what it's like,
so...go on, then, let's have a go with that one.
'I'm not in the slightest bit worried about this, honest(!)'
No, don't go up my arm! HE LAUGHS
'And once I've invited Boris onto my hand, there's no stopping Charlie.'
There you go. Your brother just had a tarantula walk across his hand.
'There's no way Holly's going to be outdone, though.'
Wow! So, now you've experienced what it's like,
do you still want to subject your dad to this?
-If I can do it, he can.
Entertainment sorted...as long as Dad's feeling brave.
Charlie and Holly have almost finished
planning their bone-chilling big day,
but no wedding would be complete without a cake.
You can get your hands in if you want to. Nice and messy.
'The kids have already been working on their haunted house
'inspired design with a cake maker,
'and I've come along to see what they've got in mind.'
These are the cake pops, are they, sticking out the side?
'With severed fingers and bloodshot eyeballs,
'this looks like it could be one creepy confection. Sound good, Dad?'
-I'd love our cake to be just like a traditional wedding cake,
with the bride and groom on top, the normal icing,
and just the normal sort of cake.
'Normal? No chance, Dad.'
'A big part of Charlie and Holly's design
'is individual cakes on sticks.
'They're called cake pops.
'So the kids will need to roll up their sleeves to get
'the gruesome goodies ready in time.'
This is the most unusual cake for a wedding, ever.
-These eyes are coming out great.
-Oh, yeah! Look. Good.
Frederick is finished.
'With our edible spider production line in full flow,
'it looks like the cake should be sorted in time.'
'The final piece of our wedding jigsaw is falling into place.
'Charlie and Holly are almost ready for Mum and Dad's
'super spooky celebrations.'
'From haunted houses to scary spiders, moody make-up to creepy
'cakes, the kids have worked flat out to make their plans a reality.'
'But Mum and Dad are wondering if Charlie and Holly
'might be planning some wedding day mischief.'
They've been speaking to my mum tonight and she was laughing
her head off, so I tried to think what they've been up to!
'You don't know the half of it, Mum.'
It's the day before the scary celebration.
Mum and Dad head off to take part in a legal ceremony, so that, tomorrow,
they can be declared husband and wife at the haunted house.
As the decorations for the venue start to take shape,
the excitement is beginning to build.
-We've been waiting for such a long time for Mum and Dad to get
married, and I'm really looking forward to it,
because it won't be a normal white wedding.
Meanwhile, at the cottage the family are staying in, near to the top
secret venue, our vampires-to-be are beginning to get the heebie-jeebies.
I can't believe they've just kept it all a secret for so long.
I'm feeling a bit more nervous now, for some strange reason.
I don't know why.
'You should be nervous, Dad. Very, very nervous.
'Tomorrow morning, you and Mum will be getting hitched as Dracula
'and his bride.' EVIL LAUGH
Welcome to the ultimate spookfest. Come in.
We've spent all night preparing for the wedding of Dracula and his bride.
I just hope we don't scare too many of the wedding guests.
Anyway, I can't stand around chatting, still got plenty to do.
Igor! Have you watered the brains, Igor?
While Ed's busy at the venue, over at the cottage,
it's time for me to kick start the frightfest.
You two! You scared me. That's brilliant. You look just the part.
Fab make-up is going to need fab outfits.
You better go and put those on.
'The kids know they've been made up with freaky faces,
'but remember there are no mirrors in Mum and Dad's room,
'so they still don't have a clue what they look like.'
All right, so Mum's going to help you get into that,
-cos you're going to be blindfolded. No peeking.
'Over at the haunted house,
'Ed is doing his best to make sure that we're ready on time.'
'What a creep.
'Meanwhile, back at the cottage, we've got a junior witch
'and our very own young Dracula,
'who can't wait to start our scary celebrations.'
Wow, you two look amazing! How are you feeling in your outfits?
-Yeah, they're really good.
All right, well, it's time to finally show them
what you have chosen for them to wear today and see how they react.
This is definitely a scary moment.
'As Dracula and his bride are led in, will their spooky wedding
'make Mum and Dad scream with terror, or howl with delight?'
-Mum and Dad, good morning. How are you feeling?
OK, so what's going to happen is, on the count of three,
you're going to remove your blindfolds and Charlie
and Holly are going to show you what you look like.
-Is everybody ready?
three! Take off your blindfolds.
THEY ALL LAUGH
Look at these two!
-Look at you! You look brilliant!
-So, have you got any ideas what the theme might be?
-Well, close. It's a haunted house theme.
-Well, there is one thing missing.
As you're both vampires, you do of course need some teeth.
So can we add some fangs, please!
'To add the final touches to our vampires' outfits, Carly has
'brought along some fangs from the Young Dracula make-up department.'
Well, if you're all ready, it's time to take you to your wedding,
so let's step outside and see what Charlie and Holly have got lined up.
'Now that Mum and Dad know the theme,
'it's time to introduce them to the creepy carriage that the kids
'have arranged to take them to their wedding.'
-Is this what you were expecting?
So, Charlie and Holly specifically chose this carriage.
They designed it themselves, with the flowers
and the head dresses on the horses.
All their choices. You go and get on board, everybody.
'So far, so spooky.
'Not only have Charlie and Holly managed to
'turn their parents into fang-bearing vampires...'
This is great. Absolutely fantastic. Lovely day.
'..they've also put them in a traffic-stopping horse
'and carriage ride to their very own haunted house.'
It burns! It burns!
With Mum and Dad on their way,
it's time for the wedding guests to get into the spirit,
by dressing as spooky characters and hiding in the haunted house,
ready to spring a shock on the happy couple later on.
Welcome to one of the most haunted houses in Britain, Mum and Dad.
Come inside, if you can stomach it.
'Dracula and his bride are ready to get married, but they're
'about to find out that it isn't going to be straightforward.'
Before the ceremony can begin,
there's a little something you have to do.
-You will have to retrieve the rings...
-From the creepy cellar.
Do you wish to accept your challenge?
-I accept the challenge.
You may regret that.
'You can say that again.
'Little does Dad know that he's about to face his very worst fear.'
This way to the spider cellar.
-Dad, how are you with spiders?
-Not very good.
For me, my worst nightmare would be spiders.
I'm sorry you have to go down there alone, Dad,
but there's just no way around it.
It's what your children want.
'Dad is in for a major challenge.'
It's pretty dark down here.
It's pretty scary.
'Not only does he have to brave the spooky cellar...'
It's pretty scary.
I've never seen such a scared vampire.
'..he has to confront the thing that scares him the most. Spiders.'
You're cruel, you guys. Really, really cruel.
'To claim the wedding rings for the ceremony,
'Dad will have to dip his digits into three terrifying tanks.'
I haven't got to put my hands in there, have I?
'The rings are guarded by some of the meanest looking
'spiders on the planet.'
Go on, Dad!
'With Mum, Charlie and Holly watching the action on a screen upstairs,
'it's make or break time for Dad.'
'Tank one. Dad has avoided the spider.'
-Yes, he's got it!
Is there a ring in there?
'But the box is agonisingly ring-free.'
-It was empty!
'Second tank next.'
Oh, yes, he's got it.
'And, this time, Dad has done the business.'
Yes, I've got one!
'Final tank. The biggest spider yet.'
The things you do for love.
Ah, don't move.
'Dad needs to pull this off, or there'll be no ceremony.'
-He's done it!
Can't believe I've just done that.
I was actually shaking down there, as well.
-Are you ready for your ceremony?
'While Dad has been bravely retrieving the rings,
'my vampire self and the wedding guests have gathered
'together in the ceremony room, and are waiting to give Dracula
'and his bride a little surprise.'
Now they've met their gruesome guests,
it's time for this weird wedding to begin...
-CREEPY ORGAN MUSIC PLAYS
-..with a script especially written
by Charlie and Holly.
Where's my bride?
I am here, my love.
I give you this ring as a symbol of our marriage.
Here today, I ask our friends and family to witness that
I, Kerry, take you, Cathy, to be my wife.
After 14 years, I can't believe it. We're actually married, at last.
-Thank goodness for that.
-Thanks to the kids. They've been brilliant.
SONG: "Monster Mash"
'With our creepy couple happily hitched, it's time to party,
Ladies and gentlemen, Mr and Mrs Dracula!
'Charlie and Holly's haunted house theme
'even extends to the wedding food.
'For their monster's ball,
'the kids are serving up a menu of terrible treats.
He's got a tail hanging from his mouth!
'Dracula and his bride have dined on a feast fit for vampires, but let's
'hope they're hungry for more, as the kids have one final treat to reveal.'
ALL CHANT: Where's the cake? Where's the cake?
Right, Dracula, I think it's about time you sank your fangs into this.
Charlie and Holly's mission to marry Mum and Dad is almost complete.
So, has the wedding been a dream or a nightmare?
I'm just going to sum it up in one word. Amazing!
I can't believe we've done it,
and it's just been absolutely brilliant.
I hope Mum and Dad liked it.
-I'm really proud of what the kids have done.
They've done loads of great stuff, some horrible stuff too,
to me, anyway, with the spiders, but I did it.
But absolutely pleased as punch. They've done a great job.
Well, I think that was one of the most monstrously mischievous
weddings we've ever had on Marrying Mum And Dad.
Yeah, it could have gone scarily wrong for them,
but, luckily, everyone entered into the spirit of it.
Although, I don't think that house is haunted.
It's lucky you say that, cos there wasn't any room
-left for you in the hotel tonight, so you're staying here.
Yes, in you go. Bye. Sleep well. Night night.

Children organise the best wedding ever for their parents and step-parents. Charlie and Holly plan one of the cheekiest big days ever with their haunted house wedding, where their arachnophobe dad has to find the wedding rings in the spider cellar.
