This is Marrying Mum And Dad.

0:00:020:00:03

Where you get to organise your parents' wedding day!

0:00:030:00:06

That means you're in charge.

0:00:060:00:08

Yay!

0:00:080:00:09

You can do whatever you want.

0:00:090:00:12

SHE GASPS

0:00:120:00:14

Mum and Dad have no idea what you're planning.

0:00:140:00:16

You've only got a few weeks to do it all.

0:00:180:00:21

Is that really coming for us?

0:00:210:00:23

Are you ready for it? Whoo!

0:00:230:00:26

Oh, we got a DeLorean!

0:00:260:00:29

Are your parents ready for it?

0:00:290:00:30

Pretty scary!

0:00:300:00:32

Will the day be filled with chaos?

0:00:320:00:34

CHEERING

0:00:340:00:35

Or confetti?

0:00:350:00:37

-BOTH:

-Best. Thing. Ever.

0:00:370:00:39

On today's show we've got two eager wedding planners

0:00:410:00:43

ready to step back in time.

0:00:430:00:46

Groovy, baby!

0:00:460:00:48

These are some John Lennon lyrics.

0:00:480:00:51

Will the big day go down in the history books?

0:00:510:00:53

-But who has blue hair?

-Steve.

0:00:530:00:56

Or will it be a step too far?

0:00:560:00:58

We're about to find out cos we're Marrying Mum And Dad.

This is Marrying Mum And Dad

0:01:280:01:30

where kids take control of planning their parents' wedding.

0:01:300:01:33

That's right, you get to organise everything. You are in charge!

0:01:330:01:37

And best of all Mum and Dad won't know a thing about it

0:01:370:01:39

until the big day.

0:01:390:01:41

Now, the kids are in control but they won't be completely alone.

0:01:410:01:44

-Cos we're here to lend a helping hand.

-Lucky them.

0:01:440:01:47

We're in Essex where a dynamic duo

0:01:500:01:52

can't wait to get their hands on Mum and Dad's nuptials.

0:01:520:01:56

Meet sister and brother, Abbie and Liam.

0:01:580:02:01

Hi, I'm Abbie.

0:02:010:02:02

Hi, I'm Liam.

0:02:040:02:06

Liam's very funny and always trying to make us laugh.

0:02:060:02:08

She's clever but she thinks she's always right, but she's not.

0:02:080:02:12

-I guess we're typical brother and sister.

-Yeah, we're always arguing.

0:02:130:02:17

Stop.

0:02:170:02:19

She normally grasses me up if I do something naughty.

0:02:190:02:21

You grass me up as well.

0:02:210:02:23

Abbie and Liam live with Mum, Alison, and her boyfriend, stepdad Steve.

0:02:230:02:29

Our mum is quite funny sometimes.

0:02:290:02:32

Like, always mucking around.

0:02:320:02:34

-Argh!

-Boo!

0:02:340:02:37

Our stepdad's very caring and funny.

0:02:370:02:40

Engaged for almost two years now,

0:02:410:02:43

Abbie and Liam can't wait for Mum and Steve to tie the knot.

0:02:430:02:47

I think it's important for them to get married

0:02:470:02:50

because they've both had a marriage before.

0:02:500:02:52

It's sort of like second time lucky.

0:02:520:02:55

And me and Abbie get on with Steve really well.

0:02:550:02:59

Steve is thrilled that Abbie and Liam want to make him

0:02:590:03:01

officially a part of the family.

0:03:010:03:04

It's never easy coming in to a family that's already established.

0:03:040:03:08

For them to want to do it means the world to us, especially me.

0:03:080:03:12

But Mum and Steve have no idea what these two

0:03:120:03:15

have planned for the big day.

0:03:150:03:17

If Liam's ideas are in there they might be a little bit crazy.

0:03:170:03:20

But I think Abbie will rein him in.

0:03:200:03:23

You wish, Mum.

0:03:230:03:25

They've assured me that it's not a stitch-up

0:03:250:03:28

and that Steve isn't going to be wearing tights.

0:03:280:03:30

We really want Mum and Steve to get married.

0:03:300:03:33

Because they've been engaged for such a long time

0:03:330:03:35

and it would be lovely for Steve to be a part of our family.

0:03:350:03:37

-And if we organise it, it'll be much better!

-It'll be well cool.

0:03:370:03:40

Ready or not this wedding's happening, and the clock is ticking.

0:03:400:03:43

Yeah, in less than two weeks Mum and Steve are going to be

0:03:430:03:45

heading down the aisle and nothing is booked!

0:03:450:03:47

We have to organise a theme, a venue,

0:03:470:03:49

outfits, cake, entertainment...

0:03:490:03:51

All right, we get the idea, Ed. We better get started.

0:03:510:03:53

Before we can get stuck in to the wedding planning,

0:03:560:03:59

Mum and Steve need to hand over control.

0:03:590:04:02

Ladies, gentlemen...and Liam,

0:04:020:04:04

we are gathered here today to mix things up a bit.

0:04:040:04:08

Do you, Mum, allow your children to completely and utterly

0:04:080:04:12

organise a wedding day you will never forget?

0:04:120:04:14

I do.

0:04:140:04:16

And do you, Steve,

0:04:160:04:17

accept that you'll have absolutely no say in what goes on?

0:04:170:04:21

I do.

0:04:210:04:22

Then, Abbie, Liam, since this is the handover ceremony,

0:04:220:04:25

if we put our hands over each other...

0:04:250:04:28

you will become officially in charge!

0:04:280:04:30

ALL: Whoo!

0:04:320:04:34

With Mum and Steve out of the way

0:04:360:04:38

we can find out the theme of the wedding.

0:04:380:04:41

So, first things first, you need to tell us what theme you've chosen.

0:04:410:04:44

Well, Mum and Steve both love this era, so we've chosen the 1960s.

0:04:440:04:49

-Finally!

-What a cool era.

0:04:500:04:52

G-r-r-roovy, baby, yeah!

0:04:520:04:54

# People try to put us down

0:04:540:04:57

# Talking about my generation... #

0:04:570:05:00

The '60s was all about pop music.

0:05:000:05:02

Everyone was getting down to The Beatles.

0:05:020:05:04

SONG: "Help!"

0:05:040:05:06

They were the '60s equivalent of One Direction.

0:05:060:05:08

SONG: "Wild Thing"

0:05:080:05:10

In fashion, the miniskirt was invented. And the mod look was born.

0:05:100:05:15

Mods wore sharp suits, expensive shoes and often rode around

0:05:150:05:19

on an Italian scooter, such as a Lambretta.

0:05:190:05:23

Forget "sick, swag, or boss" -

0:05:230:05:25

in the 1960s everything was "groovy" and "far out".

0:05:250:05:30

-I love the 1960s.

-That's groovy.

0:05:300:05:32

There was mega fashion. Why that one in particular then?

0:05:320:05:36

Because Steve loves his Lambrettas and Mum loves all the fashion.

0:05:360:05:39

I've never seen so many scooters in one room.

0:05:390:05:42

Yeah, even the clock.

0:05:420:05:44

This is going to be so cool. That is a great idea.

0:05:440:05:47

Let's help these hip and hanging cats

0:05:470:05:49

organise the most swinging wedding in town.

0:05:490:05:52

Let's go back to the '60s!

0:05:520:05:53

That's the theme sorted - the groovy '60s! Far out, man!

0:05:560:06:01

In you go.

0:06:040:06:05

'For inspiration for our 1960s wedding,

0:06:050:06:08

'we're visiting a music vault in central London

0:06:080:06:10

'full of memorabilia from the top stars of the decade,

0:06:100:06:13

'like The Who and Jimi Hendrix.'

0:06:130:06:17

These are some John Lennon lyrics.

0:06:170:06:20

'It's an Aladdin's cave of '60s treasure.'

0:06:200:06:23

So we are surrounded by '60s greatness in here.

0:06:230:06:26

Hopefully this will get you inspired.

0:06:260:06:28

What are you thinking everyone's going to wear for this wedding?

0:06:280:06:30

-Mod suits for Steve and...

-Mod suits like The Beatles wear?

0:06:300:06:34

-Yeah.

-Do your mum and Steve like The Beatles?

-Yeah.

0:06:340:06:38

My name's Abbie Rose and I'm named after Abbey Road.

0:06:380:06:42

'Abbie Rose was named after '60s album Abbey Road by The Beatles

0:06:420:06:46

'and this iconic album cover made it the most famous zebra crossing

0:06:460:06:51

'in the world.'

0:06:510:06:52

What about entertainment?

0:06:520:06:54

We're thinking on having a Beatles tribute band.

0:06:540:06:57

Like, they could perform a song we write or something.

0:06:570:06:59

-You're planning on writing your own song for them?

-Yeah.

0:06:590:07:02

There's no better place, surrounded by all this '60s musical greatness,

0:07:020:07:05

for you to sit and write your song. You might get some inspiration.

0:07:050:07:09

'Whilst Abbie and Liam write a song for Mum and Steve...'

0:07:090:07:12

Maybe we should have about, like, four verses.

0:07:120:07:15

'..I'm going to update Ed.'

0:07:150:07:17

'Have you ran out of credit, Naomi?'

0:07:170:07:19

PHONE RINGS

0:07:190:07:20

RINGTONE: "Gangnam Style"

0:07:220:07:25

Hello?

0:07:280:07:29

'Hello, Ed? I'm just ringing to let you know how it's all going here.'

0:07:290:07:33

-Uh-huh.

-We are having a very productive day at The Vault.

0:07:330:07:36

They've come up with absolutely loads of ideas to make their wedding

0:07:360:07:39

-really go with a swing.

-Oh, right.

0:07:390:07:41

-So no slacking, OK?

-Yeah.

0:07:410:07:44

If you could find some '60s song writers, cos they need to be helped

0:07:440:07:47

to write an absolute smash hit for this wedding.

0:07:470:07:50

HE GRUNTS

0:07:500:07:52

Are you listening to me?

0:07:520:07:53

I'm just finishing something off.

0:07:530:07:55

Ed, I don't really feel like I've got your full attention.

0:07:550:07:58

-I've been very busy.

-OK. Bye.

-Bye.

0:07:580:08:01

Do you ever get the feeling you're being ignored?

0:08:050:08:07

'I can multitask, actually, Naomi.

0:08:090:08:12

'And to prove I've been listening, next up, it's the entertainment.'

0:08:120:08:16

Lovely.

0:08:160:08:17

As you probably know,

0:08:190:08:20

music was huge in the '60s with bands like The Rolling Stones...

0:08:200:08:23

SONG: "Satisfaction"

0:08:230:08:27

MUSIC STOPS

0:08:270:08:28

The Kinks.

0:08:280:08:30

SONG: "You Really Got Me"

0:08:300:08:32

MUSIC STOPS

0:08:320:08:34

One Direction.

0:08:340:08:36

-What?

-Forget about that.

0:08:360:08:39

So, I was wondering, what's your mum and Steve's favourite '60s band?

0:08:390:08:42

-BOTH: The Beatles.

-I was hoping you'd say that. Come in, guys!

0:08:420:08:45

Hello.

0:08:460:08:49

-I'm Steve.

-I'm Nick.

-I'm Dan.

0:08:490:08:50

Where's the other one?

0:08:500:08:51

-Ringo's having his hair cut.

-Rock and roll.

0:08:510:08:53

-You want to write a song for Mum and Steve's wedding, didn't you?

-Yep.

0:08:530:08:56

I think these could be the guys to do it.

0:08:560:08:58

# She loves you Yeah, yeah, yeah... #

0:08:580:09:00

'Tribute band Like The Beatles

0:09:000:09:02

'are as close to the fab four as you can get.'

0:09:020:09:05

# You know you should be glad... #

0:09:050:09:09

'But can they give that sound of the '60s to Abbie

0:09:090:09:11

'and Liam's song for Mum and Steve?'

0:09:110:09:14

'Ed, are you trying to be the fourth member?'

0:09:150:09:18

# Yeah! #

0:09:180:09:20

'Abbie and Liam have written lyrics for the song and they need the lads

0:09:200:09:24

'to make it sound like a Beatles' hit.

0:09:240:09:26

# Marrying Mum and Dad

0:09:270:09:30

# No that can't be bad

0:09:300:09:33

# A love like this is so good That is true

0:09:330:09:37

# Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah. #

0:09:370:09:39

Was that the sort of thing you had in mind when you wrote the lyrics?

0:09:390:09:42

-Yeah.

-The right sort of speed and things?

-Yeah.

0:09:420:09:44

You think this is the sort of the The Beatles would do?

0:09:440:09:46

Yeah, there's quite a lot Beatles-ness in there.

0:09:460:09:48

We've got some "oohs" and "la las" if we do some backing vocals.

0:09:480:09:51

We think we could do some pretty good, "yeahs" and "oohs" and "ahhs".

0:09:510:09:56

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah?

0:09:560:09:59

Yeah? Yeah! Yeah, yeah, yeah!

0:09:590:10:01

# We're marrying Mum and Dad

0:10:010:10:04

# That Mum said yes, we're glad... #

0:10:040:10:06

NAOMI:' Not sure they're digging those dance moves, Ed.'

0:10:060:10:09

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...#

0:10:090:10:11

'Abbie and Liam seem really happy with how the song's shaping up.

0:10:110:10:14

'The question is, will Mum and Steve like it, too?'

0:10:140:10:17

# Ooooh! #

0:10:180:10:20

'Don't give up the day job, Ed.'

0:10:200:10:22

That's the entertainment crossed off the list.

0:10:220:10:25

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. #

0:10:250:10:27

Now let's get this wedding moving.

0:10:270:10:29

In the 1960s, mods rode around on Lambretta scooters

0:10:320:10:36

which they put their stamp on by customising.

0:10:360:10:39

Steve has his very own '60s Lambretta.

0:10:390:10:41

The problem is, it's in pieces.

0:10:430:10:46

Abbie and Liam want him to scoot to the wedding

0:10:460:10:48

and I think I've found the perfect solution.

0:10:480:10:50

# Hallelujah. #

0:10:500:10:53

Whoa!

0:10:530:10:54

Well shiny.

0:10:540:10:56

This beauty belongs to scooter enthusiast Steve.

0:10:560:10:59

-Do you think Steve will be a bit jealous?

-BOTH: Yeah.

0:10:590:11:01

Well, he doesn't have to be cos he can ride this on his wedding day.

0:11:010:11:05

Steve's going to lend it to him. It's a Steve thing.

0:11:050:11:08

So how do you imagine him turning up to this, on his wedding day?

0:11:080:11:11

With, like, a flock of mods behind him.

0:11:110:11:13

-Just have a massive procession?

-Yes, that can be done.

0:11:130:11:16

That's a brilliant idea. I love that.

0:11:160:11:18

'And to make Steve stand out from the crowd,

0:11:180:11:20

'could we customise this scooter?'

0:11:200:11:22

I can see a lot of love's gone into this. Presumably we can't...

0:11:220:11:25

-personalise it ourselves.

-I think you can, in particular these panels.

0:11:250:11:29

You could put a nice vinyl wrap design on.

0:11:290:11:32

I like the idea of that.

0:11:320:11:35

'We still need to think about how to get Mum to the wedding. But I think

0:11:350:11:38

'Steve's going to be one happy bunny with his '60s scooter.'

0:11:380:11:42

Transport done! A '60s procession to the wedding.

0:11:420:11:45

Now on to the cake.

0:11:450:11:46

'Abbie and Liam want to create a 1960s-inspired cake using pop art.'

0:11:490:11:54

Pop art was a fun form of art in the '60s that used bright colours

0:11:560:12:00

to customise images of comic strips, adverts and famous faces.

0:12:000:12:05

Have a little look at these.

0:12:050:12:08

-Who's that?

-Steve.

0:12:080:12:09

-And?

-Mum.

-Yeah.

0:12:090:12:12

Pop artists Simmone and Carl have drawn the outlines of Steve

0:12:120:12:15

and Mum's faces for us to paint in a pop art-style.

0:12:150:12:18

Oh, they've started. I think we should start.

0:12:180:12:20

-Definitely pink background?

-Yeah.

0:12:200:12:22

Our finished portraits will be used to decorate the wedding cake.

0:12:220:12:26

Shall we do bright yellow? Have you seen the yellow? Look.

0:12:260:12:30

Hey-hey!

0:12:300:12:31

Oh, wow!

0:12:310:12:32

It's not long before the boys think they're art critics.

0:12:320:12:35

What do you think of theirs, Liam?

0:12:350:12:37

-How's theirs getting on?

-Rubbish.

-Go and have a look.

0:12:370:12:39

Rubbish?

0:12:390:12:41

Who has ginger, brown, light blonde and blonde hair?

0:12:410:12:45

-A pop art mum.

-But it still looks rubbish. Our one looks well better.

0:12:450:12:49

-Yeah, but who has blue hair?

-Steve.

0:12:490:12:52

'Our portraits will be the icing on the cake to our 1960s wedding.

0:12:520:12:56

'Abbie and Liam can't wait now for the big day.'

0:12:560:12:59

Abbie, what does it mean to you that your mum and Steve

0:12:590:13:02

are going to tie the knot?

0:13:020:13:04

It means a lot because they've been together a long time

0:13:040:13:06

and they're really happy together.

0:13:060:13:09

Do you get on very well with Steve?

0:13:090:13:10

Yeah, he's very nice and very caring and is always, like,

0:13:100:13:13

there for us and...he's like another dad.

0:13:130:13:16

Do you think this is the sort of wedding

0:13:160:13:18

-that they would have planned?

-No.

0:13:180:13:21

Are they relaxed about it?

0:13:210:13:23

Um...I think so.

0:13:230:13:26

'Mum and Steve relaxed? Really?'

0:13:260:13:28

I've got loads of doubt in my mind and I'm a bit worried

0:13:280:13:31

and I've got all these bright oranges and purples

0:13:310:13:33

flashing in my eyes, rather than the lovely rose-tinted-ness

0:13:330:13:37

of this beautiful wedding that I thought we were going to be having.

0:13:370:13:40

'Or should that be shocking pink and bright yellow hair, Mum?'

0:13:400:13:43

'The boys are trying to distract us...'

0:13:460:13:48

Hurry up!

0:13:480:13:50

'..but we're staying focused on creating our very own pop art.'

0:13:500:13:54

'That's our pop art portraits done.'

0:13:560:13:58

-Ta-da.

-Whose do you think is the best?

-Ours.

0:14:000:14:03

So what happens now, Simmone?

0:14:030:14:05

Next, we'll be taking pictures of your art work and then we'll

0:14:050:14:07

also be printing them so they'll be ready to go onto the cake.

0:14:070:14:10

So we can eat Steve's face.

0:14:100:14:11

That's the cake sorted for our hip and happening '60s wedding.

0:14:130:14:17

Abbie and Liam are halfway through

0:14:190:14:21

planning Mum and Steve's swinging '60s wedding.

0:14:210:14:24

Most weddings take months to plan,

0:14:240:14:26

but in just a week they've sorted the theme...

0:14:260:14:28

Let's go back to the '60s!

0:14:280:14:31

'..entertainment...

0:14:310:14:33

'transport...

0:14:330:14:34

'and cake.

0:14:340:14:37

'And with the help of a graphic designer, they've designed

0:14:370:14:39

'an Abbey Road-inspired sticker to personalise Steve's scooter.'

0:14:390:14:43

Steve's got his very own personalised scooter.

0:14:430:14:46

He's going to love that.

0:14:460:14:47

But Mum and Steve are none the wiser.

0:14:470:14:50

They've been very good at keeping secrets, haven't they?

0:14:500:14:53

-Worryingly good at keeping secrets.

-Yeah.

0:14:530:14:55

Abbie and Liam still have loads to do - we need a venue,

0:14:550:14:59

and what are Mum and Dad going to wear?

0:14:590:15:01

I like that one.

0:15:040:15:05

Abbie and Liam have found a 1960s-style dress for Mum

0:15:050:15:08

online, which they absolutely love.

0:15:080:15:11

I like this one, I like the way it's, like, puffy at the bottom...

0:15:110:15:14

-And the gloves.

-And the gloves are nice, yeah.

0:15:140:15:16

They want Steve to dress like a '60s mod, in a sleek suit.

0:15:160:15:20

So we've come to a vintage shop full of original '60s clothes.

0:15:210:15:25

And the fashions back then were certainly colourful.

0:15:280:15:30

Whoa!

0:15:300:15:32

Mod suits over this way.

0:15:350:15:38

Right, a mod suit for Steve.

0:15:380:15:41

That looks quite smart.

0:15:410:15:42

What do you think he'd think of being in red?

0:15:420:15:45

-I think he would quite like it.

-Try it on.

0:15:450:15:48

That's cool!

0:15:510:15:52

-What do you think?

-I think this one.

0:15:520:15:54

So we're torn between these two jackets at the minute, are we?

0:15:540:15:57

-Yeah.

-All right, let's go and find a shirt to match them.

0:15:570:16:00

-Oh! That's bright!

-There's that one.

0:16:000:16:04

-Yeah, that's good, I like that.

-I like that one as well.

0:16:040:16:07

How are we going to choose? What do you think?

0:16:070:16:09

It's crunch time. Abbie and Liam can't agree on Steve's outfit.

0:16:090:16:13

Toss a coin?

0:16:130:16:14

-Toss a coin?

-Yeah.

0:16:140:16:15

Heads it's Abbie's, tails it's yours.

0:16:150:16:18

-Heads.

-Abbie's.

0:16:200:16:22

-Are you going to be all right with that.

-Yep.

-Are you sure?

-Yep.

0:16:220:16:25

Oh, look, he's so easy-going.

0:16:250:16:27

Brilliant! I hope Steve's as easy-going as you.

0:16:270:16:29

The one thing everybody said to me is,

0:16:290:16:32

"You don't know what you're going to be wearing, it could be anything.

0:16:320:16:35

"They could be making you wear a tutu or, you know, anything."

0:16:350:16:38

And I'm like, "Could be dressed as Coco the clown, I don't know."

0:16:380:16:43

Oh, you keep guessing, Steve.

0:16:430:16:44

We've still got more shopping to do.

0:16:440:16:47

So we've got to think of something you two are going to wear

0:16:470:16:50

and, of course, me and Ed.

0:16:500:16:52

That's very '60s. Have you found something, Liam?

0:16:520:16:55

Look at the shoes!

0:16:550:16:57

SHE LAUGHS

0:16:570:16:59

-Ed!

-'A frilly shirt?'

0:16:590:17:01

-We could be really mean, couldn't we? Cos he's not here.

-'Really?'

0:17:010:17:05

-Oh, that's lovely! You like that better than the last one?

-Yeah.

0:17:090:17:12

-Lovely. Shall we try some more?

-Yeah.

0:17:120:17:16

Not sure about this one.

0:17:160:17:18

Well, I think we're done a great job, don't you?

0:17:180:17:20

-Yeah.

-Outfits sorted!

0:17:200:17:22

-Yeah! Ed's going to love it, isn't he?

-Yeah.

0:17:220:17:25

Mm, we'll see. Next up, it's the venue.

0:17:250:17:27

We've brought our planners to see a venue where we think

0:17:300:17:33

we could hold our '60s shindig.

0:17:330:17:36

It might not look much now but we think we can transform this place.

0:17:360:17:40

I just hope it gets Abbie and Liam's seal of approval.

0:17:410:17:43

This is well nice.

0:17:430:17:45

-"Well nice."

-"Well nice."

0:17:450:17:47

That's the Essex seal of approval right there.

0:17:470:17:49

Fortunately, Abbie and Liam can see the potential, too.

0:17:490:17:52

This is where he can do his Mick Jagger dancing, yeah!

0:17:520:17:55

Give it a bit of this.

0:17:550:17:57

'This venue ticks all the boxes...'

0:17:570:17:59

There's a disco ball.

0:17:590:18:01

'..a stage for the entertainment,

0:18:010:18:02

'a large car park, for our flock of scooters,

0:18:020:18:05

'and plenty of room to party.

0:18:050:18:08

'But how can we give it that '60s look?'

0:18:080:18:10

What kind of thing are you thinking?

0:18:100:18:12

Make it, like, the lights and stuff green and, like,

0:18:120:18:15

really bright coloured lights.

0:18:150:18:16

Like an underground '60s nightclub.

0:18:160:18:19

Any other ideas?

0:18:190:18:21

Yeah, we were thinking if there's, like, a zebra crossing somewhere,

0:18:210:18:24

-we could recreate the Abbey Road...

-Oh, yeah!

0:18:240:18:27

Like, with me, Mum, Abbie and Steve walking

0:18:270:18:30

and have it as one of the photos.

0:18:300:18:33

Everyone could go home with their own Abbey Road photo.

0:18:330:18:35

That's a really good idea.

0:18:350:18:37

With another room where we can hold the wedding ceremony,

0:18:380:18:41

I think we've scored top trumps for the venue.

0:18:410:18:44

Best just give the dance floor a test drive.

0:18:440:18:46

-I'm keen on dad dancing...

-Do the mash potato.

0:18:460:18:49

-..so a '60s wedding is the wedding for me.

-Whoo-hoo!

0:18:490:18:51

Venue booked. We're ready to go back to the '60s.

0:18:530:18:56

Abbie and Liam have worked hard over the last few weeks to organise

0:18:580:19:01

a swinging '60s wedding for Mum and Steve.

0:19:010:19:04

From groovy outfits...

0:19:060:19:08

Whoa!

0:19:080:19:09

..to Beatles-inspired entertainment, a swinging venue,

0:19:090:19:13

and hot wheels to the wedding.

0:19:130:19:15

Whilst most weddings take months to plan,

0:19:150:19:17

we're rewound 50 years in just a few weeks.

0:19:170:19:20

Abbie and Liam have had loads of fun planning the wedding

0:19:200:19:24

but will Mum and Steve like it?

0:19:240:19:26

It's the night before the big day

0:19:290:19:31

and the pre-wedding nerves have kicked in at the house.

0:19:310:19:34

I'm really nervous, I don't know about you.

0:19:340:19:36

I'm a little bit nervous. Just in case,

0:19:360:19:40

like, Mum don't like it.

0:19:400:19:41

Mum and Steve are feeling a mixture of emotions.

0:19:430:19:46

Suddenly it's hit me like a steam train

0:19:460:19:48

that we're getting married.

0:19:480:19:50

I do feel quite emotional about the whole thing.

0:19:500:19:52

There's not going be a lot of sleep in this house, generally, tonight,

0:19:520:19:55

is there?

0:19:550:19:57

Let's hope they get their beauty sleep,

0:19:570:19:59

as the big day is just hours away.

0:19:590:20:01

The day Mum and Steve get married has finally arrived.

0:20:050:20:09

Whilst the family get ready at home...

0:20:100:20:12

..the venue is being transformed into a swinging '60s club.

0:20:140:20:18

And I'm here to deliver the outfits.

0:20:190:20:21

It's time for Mum and Steve to finally see what Abbie and Liam have

0:20:210:20:24

chosen for them to wear to their own wedding that they know nothing about.

0:20:240:20:28

-Good morning.

-Good morning.

-How you feeling, Steve?

0:20:300:20:33

-Not too bad.

-Happy wedding day to you.

-Thank you very much.

0:20:330:20:36

-Mum, you look gorgeous. How you doing?

-All right, thank you.

0:20:410:20:44

Ed's doing his best to help out at the venue.

0:20:440:20:47

Oh, look at you in your '60s getup.

0:20:470:20:49

Nice shirt(!)

0:20:490:20:51

I'm ready. Time to check out Abbie and Liam.

0:20:510:20:54

Oh, you look sensational. How are you feeling?

0:20:570:21:00

Little bit weird cos I've never been in suit before

0:21:000:21:02

and when I move arms the whole suit goes up.

0:21:020:21:05

I love it.

0:21:050:21:06

Our wedding planners look the part but how will Mum and Steve react

0:21:060:21:10

when they see their outfits?

0:21:100:21:12

How are you feeling?

0:21:120:21:14

-Terrified.

-Are you excited to see what you're going to be wearing?

0:21:140:21:16

-Really, yeah.

-Yeah, very.

0:21:160:21:18

Everybody ready? OK, one, two, three!

0:21:180:21:22

Cool.

0:21:260:21:27

-Looks well smart.

-Oh, Mum, you look absolutely beautiful.

0:21:290:21:33

I want to have a closer look. Is that, like, a mod coat?

0:21:330:21:35

-That's very '60s-looking, isn't it?

-Yeah, the whole '60s thing.

-Yeah.

0:21:350:21:39

-Do you think that might be the theme?

-Yeah.

-I think so.

0:21:390:21:42

It's a '60s wedding!

0:21:420:21:44

-Whoo!

-Yay!

-'Mum and Steve are thrilled with the '60s theme.

0:21:440:21:47

'And it's tears of joy from Abbie.'

0:21:470:21:49

I thought that would be me.

0:21:500:21:52

Meanwhile the flock of scooters has arrived to escort Mum

0:21:540:21:56

and Steve to the wedding.

0:21:560:21:59

They've turned their engines off so they can creep up to the house

0:21:590:22:02

without ruining the surprise.

0:22:020:22:03

Take off your glasses.

0:22:050:22:07

SHE GASPS AND SCREAMS

0:22:070:22:10

I wasn't expecting that!

0:22:100:22:11

Steve, this is your own personal Lambretta,

0:22:130:22:16

designed by Abbie and Liam.

0:22:160:22:18

'Complete with the Abbey Road personalised sticker.'

0:22:180:22:21

-That's brilliant.

-That's well smart.

0:22:210:22:23

'Hang on, Mum can't go on the back of a scooter in a wedding dress.'

0:22:230:22:28

'Hold your horses, Naomi, I've got a surprise for Mum.'

0:22:280:22:31

CAR HORN HONKS

0:22:310:22:32

THEY LAUGH

0:22:320:22:35

Groovy, baby!

0:22:370:22:40

We're making sure Abbie and Liam ride in style, too.

0:22:400:22:42

SHE LAUGHS

0:22:460:22:47

All aboard!

0:22:470:22:48

Whoo-hoo!

0:22:480:22:49

Let's go back to the '60s! Far out!

0:22:490:22:52

Here we go.

0:22:560:22:57

And groom Steve gets to be the leader of the pack.

0:22:590:23:03

0:23:150:23:17

Don't cry!

Our '60s parade is causing a sensation in Essex.

0:23:240:23:28

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:23:290:23:32

The bride and groom arrive in '60s style

0:23:320:23:34

and their guests are there to greet them.

0:23:340:23:37

Are you ready to get these two married?

0:23:400:23:42

ALL: Yeah!

0:23:420:23:44

Let's get a "groove" on, man.

0:23:440:23:45

SONG: "Shake It Out"

0:23:480:23:53

I give you this ring...

I give you this ring.

0:23:550:23:56

..as a symbol of our marriage.

0:23:560:23:58

As a symbol of our marriage.

-And loyal to you.

0:24:040:24:07

..throughout our married life together.

0:24:070:24:09

Throughout our married life together.

0:24:090:24:11

It's our pleasure to say that you're husband and wife

0:24:110:24:15

and that you may kiss your bride.

0:24:150:24:17

'It's an emotional moment for the whole family.'

0:24:190:24:23

-I saw her cry.

-I didn't cry.

-You were crying.

-I didn't cry.

0:24:230:24:26

-You were crying.

-I didn't cry.

-You were crying.

-OK, I did.

0:24:260:24:30

How are the happy couple feeling now they're Mr and Mrs?

0:24:300:24:34

-That was so brilliant.

-Yeah.

0:24:340:24:37

-I can't even begin to describe how cool this has been.

-No.

0:24:370:24:40

The whole journey here, everything.

0:24:400:24:41

To have all those guys following as well.

0:24:410:24:43

I don't know how they're going to top that now.

0:24:430:24:46

Oh, don't you worry - we will.

0:24:460:24:48

With Mum and Steven finally married

0:24:490:24:51

it's time for our swinging '60s groovy party.

0:24:510:24:55

Welcome to the '60s.

0:24:550:24:56

CHEERING

0:24:560:24:59

Brilliant. Well done, you two.

0:25:020:25:04

-Well done, thank you.

-Well done, guys.

0:25:040:25:06

After a stroll down Abbey Road we're ready to get this party started.

0:25:080:25:12

It's time to reveal the pop art cake,

0:25:170:25:19

complete with the portraits Abbie and Liam painted of Mum and Steve.

0:25:190:25:23

Oh, they're brilliant.

0:25:230:25:25

The cake was amazing,

0:25:250:25:26

with our pictures on and all the little wing mirrors.

0:25:260:25:29

-And the little Lambretta on the top.

-Yeah.

0:25:290:25:32

-That's really well thought out.

-No-one's eating it, I'm having that.

0:25:320:25:35

And one more surprise.

0:25:350:25:36

'Mum and Steve get their own original piece of pop art.'

0:25:370:25:41

The original art work.

0:25:410:25:42

Oh, look at that. Thank you.

0:25:420:25:44

-Did you do these?

-Yeah.

0:25:440:25:45

- They're the ones that we painted ourselves.

0:25:450:25:49

With the wedding cake cut...

0:25:490:25:51

-Ready?

-Yeah.

0:25:510:25:54

..it's time to get this party movin' and a-groovin'.

0:25:540:25:57

Ladies and gentlemen, I hope you're enjoying this way-out wedding!

0:25:570:26:00

CHEERING

0:26:000:26:02

Mum and Steve, we've written this song for you.

0:26:020:26:05

-For all you've done for us.

-We hope you like it.

0:26:050:26:07

One, two, three, four.

# Love like this is so real and it's true

0:26:150:26:19

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah... #

0:26:190:26:21

It was really touching that they had written a song.

0:26:210:26:24

-The band were brilliant as well.

-Yeah.

-Proper Beatles-type band.

0:26:240:26:28

# Steve and Alison and their future plans... #

0:26:280:26:32

'What an amazing wedding.

0:26:320:26:34

'But with the day drawing to a close

0:26:340:26:36

'has it been a success for Mum and Steve?'

0:26:360:26:39

# On their special day with family... #

0:26:390:26:42

-We're so proud of them, aren't we?

-Proud, definitely.

0:26:420:26:44

They've done such a brilliant job

0:26:440:26:46

and I really feel their love's come through.

0:26:460:26:49

They're doing it cos they love us.

0:26:490:26:51

They're going to get such a squeeze later.

0:26:510:26:53

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

0:26:530:26:56

# We're marrying Mum and Dad... #

0:27:040:27:08

It's all paid off cos Mum and Steve are really happy.

0:27:080:27:12

And Steve's now, like, a proper part of our family.

0:27:120:27:14

Makes us sort of feel closer, in a way.

0:27:140:27:17

-STEVE:

-'Feels to me like they've accepted me

0:27:170:27:19

'and that's quite a powerful emotion.'

0:27:190:27:22

Makes me realise how lucky I am.

0:27:220:27:24

Not only to have Alison but to have them as well.

0:27:240:27:27

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

0:27:270:27:30

# We're marrying Mum and Dad... #

0:27:300:27:32

We definitely pulled off the wedding of the year.

0:27:320:27:35

# Love like this is so real and it's true... #

0:27:350:27:39

'What a groovy day!

0:27:390:27:41

'Abbie and Liam managed to pull off a sensational swinging '60s wedding.'

0:27:410:27:44

And we had the world premiere of Alison

0:27:440:27:46

and Steve's special wedding song.

0:27:460:27:48

Yeah, I think we've got a hit on our hands with that one.

0:27:480:27:50

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. #

0:27:500:27:53

# We're marrying Mum and Dad

0:27:530:27:55

0:27:550:27:58

# Love like this is so real and it's true

0:27:580:28:01

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

0:28:010:28:04

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

0:28:040:28:07

# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. #
