ED: Up and down the country, parents are getting married
in normal, traditional ceremonies.
Normal weddings are quite...
NAOMI: But fear not, Britain, because we're fighting back.
Open your eyes!
ED: Kids have set themselves the challenge of a lifetime...
Quiet on set!
NAOMI: ..to organise their parents' wedding...
Bring it on!
ED: ..and to make it a day that no-one will ever forget.
NAOMI: Will they manage it?
I'm quite nervous to plan it.
ED: Will Mum and Dad like it?
Could all go completely wrong.
NAOMI: And will they finally say, "I do"?
We're going to rock this wedding!
BOTH: This is Marrying Mum and Dad.
NAOMI: On today's show,
our planners are hoping to pitch the perfect wedding.
Let's get down to business.
ED: But will they strike the right chords?
Jump! Jump! Jump!
NAOMI: Or will this wedding end up totally off-key?
This is Marrying Mum and Dad,
the show that lets you guys plan your parents' wedding.
How cool is that?
Whether you want Mum and Dad dressed as spies,
parachuting into their venue,
or to have a wedding cake that goes bang,
you can do it!
So let's see what today's wedding planners have in store.
This is just a prop, isn't it?
ED: Today, we're in Hertfordshire...
NAOMI: ..with seven kids ready to stage a wedding
with real headline appeal.
ED: Meet 12-year-old Flick...
It's sort of embarrassing, cos they're always embarrassing us,
-but we can still be mean to them. Just a little bit.
NAOMI: ..and her big sister Lucy.
We're going to rock this wedding!
ED: The girls are in charge, with a little help from their brothers,
NAOMI: Not forgetting...
ED: This lot are in on the act to create a pitch-perfect big day...
NAOMI: ..for Daniel, dad to Lucy, Christian, Seb and Flick...
I don't think they'd do anything to make us look...
ED: ..and Amy, mum to Christopher, Evie and Emily.
We're prepared. If they horrifically embarrass us, we're prepared.
NAOMI: Easy to say now, Mum!
Time to find out what the line-up is for this wedding.
This wedding's going to be an absolute sell-out.
Come rain or shine, we'll be striking the right chords.
It'll be the event of the year,
and our parents will be the stars of the show.
Cos our theme is...
Yes, a music festival! What a great theme.
Shame I've got absolutely no music contacts whatsoever.
Just need to find someone to help me plan this wedding
who knows a lot about music.
You know, someone who's been to music festivals, or even...
an actual radio DJ who meets pop stars every day.
-You don't know someone like that, do you, Melvin?
I've been to loads of music festivals,
I'm a radio DJ, and I've met tons of pop stars.
All right, no need to brag!
So what are you doing over the next few weeks?
Fancy helping me and a group of kids plan a music-themed wedding?
That is if you're not too busy with all your celeb mates.
Well, let me just check my diary.
lunch with Beyonce there, so can't do that.
Dinner with Justin Bieber there.
Then I've got that spa with Harry Styles - can't miss that one.
I'm joking. Completely free.
Oh, great! Let's get to work.
ED: Melvin Odoom is an award-winning DJ,
and all-round music mega-know-it-all.
-A new single, new album - how are we feeling right about now?
We are so excited.
NAOMI: He's hosted loads of music shows,
and met some of the biggest names in pop.
ED: He's been to more music festivals
than you can shake a muddy stick at.
NAOMI: And he won Christmas Strictly Come Dancing.
-Melvin and Janette!
ED: He's a magical musical megastar!
NAOMI: The girls have already started fine-tuning their planning
for a festival-inspired wedding.
Time for us and the Marrying Mum and Dad plan van...
-..to help jazz things up.
-Do you want to have a look inside?
Go on, then. After you!
-You jump in.
-This is amazing!
ED: Hang on a minute! We can't have all these kids in here, Naomi.
We haven't got enough seats!
NAOMI: Right, back them out,
and let's get down to business with Lucy and Flick.
Why did you choose a music festival theme?
Because everyone in the family loves music, music is always a part,
big part of our life, and it brings us all together.
Is it important to you to have a different wedding?
-We don't want a normal wedding.
-They're just boring.
It will just be full of colour.
-Lots and lots of mud.
-LOTS of mud.
So, should we talk about your ideas for entertainment?
We were thinking some drumming.
So we can have a drum each...
-..and we can all learn a routine.
A crazy idea was we put colour, like, powder paint onto the drum,
so when you hit it, all the powder paint will come up.
-Everyone gets covered?
-That sounds cool!
-I reckon Melvin could help you with that.
-Yeah, he'd be good for that.
He sure can.
ED: Melvin's arranged for professional percussionist Adrian
to meet the guys and bang out their entertainment plans.
How would you like him to help you guys?
Well, we want to learn a drumming piece
that we can perform as the main act on the stage at the wedding.
We might put paint on it,
so whenever we bash it, paint goes everywhere.
So we're saying drumming, paint, colours.
-I could definitely help you on that one.
And I'm going to teach you a style of drumming called samba reggae.
NAOMI: What's that? ED: Beats me.
Get it - beats me?
NAOMI: And talking of beats...
THEY CHANT AND PLAY A RHYTHM
You've got music in the blood in your family!
Yeah, I was going to say the same, actually.
-Very good rhythm.
Well, I play the guitar, and Emily plays the piano.
It seems Melvin and this musical bunch have really mastered the beat.
Time to bring out their big drums.
ED: Let's hope there's no re-percussions!
We're all given different parts on different drums.
Yeah, I think it's going to be really good
as our main performance on the wedding day.
-It's going to be the headline act.
WHISTLE BLOWS RHYTHMICALLY
So, after a jam-packed session,
these guys are well on their way to hitting the right notes.
NAOMI: That's entertainment smashed.
So, the girls want a wide-open space for their festival setting,
and I've brought them to just the place.
Cue my joke.
Well, this place definitely has a festive...field.
ED: Oh, dear, Naomi!
NAOMI: Have you had any thoughts of sort of things you want to have
-at this music festival?
-A big tent and flags.
Maybe a big stage for everyone to perform on - that would be fun.
So, really, what you're telling me
is you want this enormous empty field to look all lively and full?
-Good! We've got our work cut out!
Armed with a nifty Perspex board, it's time to get the ideas flowing,
and start sketching out the plans to transform this field
into a music festival.
-What are you drawing first?
I'm going to draw a sign saying where everything is.
What should I do? Flags?
Flags. I think I'm going to do a funny-shaped gazebo, cos...
-Whoa, that's good!
-..make it unique.
Crazy speaker next door.
-We can see it on the field, and the Perspex really helps.
Nice light - that's a good idea.
That looks brilliant!
I think it's really helped for us to visualise
what our wedding's going to be like.
Is that me on the main stage?
Yeah - you're telling everyone it's a festival and it's going to be fun.
ED: The girls are coming up with some great headliner ideas,
but there's one VIP banned.
NAOMI: Clouds in the sky?
-Well, they're not going to be there - rub them out!
-I do good clouds!
-Don't want clouds!
We can't have clouds, we can't have clouds on the wedding day -
we're going to have, look, just sunshine.
Come on, let's be positive.
ED: Unfortunately, bad weather and festivals seem to go hand-in-hand,
but this wouldn't worry Mum and Dad.
What wouldn't be ideal, I think, would be...
-anything with a lot of rain outside.
NAOMI: Oh...maybe it would.
ED: Well, these planners aren't going to let anything
rain on their parade.
You wear a poncho, and you just have fun anyway.
-So it's just tough.
The board has been transformed into an awesome festival,
but building it might not be that easy.
I think we might nearly be there.
-Shall we stand back and have a little look?
Marrying Mum and Dad Festival!
-I think it looks pretty good.
Well, I think this is a perfect plan for a music festival wedding.
Now we've just got to make it a reality.
ED: That's the venue ready to face the music.
NAOMI: Funky outfits are a must for any good festival.
ED: Lucy and Flick are joined by Emily, and they mean business.
This doesn't look like funky festival get-up.
More like a weird science experiment.
EMILY: Why have you brought me here to this park?
We are going to be covering these lovely models
with different paints
to see what paints will work well with different materials.
So on the wedding day, you are going to get your mum and your dad
-covered in paint? GIRLS:
Well, Amy and Daniel are looking very happy at the moment.
-Do you think they'll be looking that happy in a few minutes?
-I hope so!
-ED: I'm not so sure.
NAOMI: I hope so. Grab your bottles, then, and take your positions.
ED: Bottles at the ready!
NAOMI: Goggles down...
ED: Take aim, and...
Swing and squeeze! Yes! Run!
It's looking good, isn't it?
This paint-chucking experiment is a winner!
ED: Daniel and Amy's outfits are suitably splattered,
but there's one more test to do.
-There seems to be a bit of a gap...
-..so we need to fill it.
Yes, that is a good idea. Have you got another cardboard cut-out?
-You could do it.
-Do it, do it!
Do it! Go on!
ED: Do it, Naomi. Take one for the wedding.
Gone right off you three.
-Three, two, one...
Does this wash out? Has anyone actually checked?
ED: Forget that, Naomi.
Has anyone checked what Mum wants to wear on her wedding day?
What wouldn't be ideal would be something too gaudy.
NAOMI: Well, we'll just ignore that, then.
ED: Yeah, probably for the best.
Enough, enough, enough!
-So, we're going to do this to them on the wedding day? GIRLS:
Poor Mum and Dad!
ED: Don't worry, Naomi - when Mum and Dad get a load of these outfits,
the only colour they might be seeing is red.
So, girls, what's your thoughts on transport?
-We wanted to get a motorhome...
-..from my dad's work.
Because Daddy, he sells motorhomes.
A really big one that would be hard to park, I think.
-Well, we want him to do an assault course.
-So basically you want to wind him up?
All right, anything else?
-We're going to sneak into Daddy's work...
..talk to his boss.
-How are we going to do that?
-Yeah, disguises sounds good.
NAOMI: Er, Melvin, come on! A pair of dark shades?
That's the worst disguise ever!
ED: Glad to see the girls have made an effort.
NAOMI: Covert mission at Dad's work is on.
ED: Flick and Lucy are on the lookout
for a festival-type van big enough for all their gear.
NAOMI: While the coast is clear,
the girls quickly grab a chat with Dad's boss.
So...let's get down to business.
ED: But don't worry, because Melvin's on lookout.
We were told you could help us find some transport
-to get to the wedding.
-Yeah, of course.
One sec, you two.
Oi! Melvin! No napping!
We need to be able to drive to the wedding in it,
and then go through a maze,
and then also do a bit of parallel parking in it.
NAOMI: The girls have their hearts set on winding Dad up.
ED: But surely he's not that bad at driving?
I mean, he does work with cars.
-I have the worst luck in the world with cars.
I went through eight cars in a year once.
NAOMI: Eight cars?!
ED: Maybe we should be hiring a tank.
NAOMI: While the coast is clear,
the girls and Melvin have a proper look around some camper vans.
Let's check out this one.
-This is cool.
-This looks nice, right?
-This is nice.
-I love the colour.
ED: Is this the perfect van for winding Dad up?
Quite like the look of this one, guys. Nice wheels, as well.
-It looks good.
-And you can annoy him in the back.
All right, we'll add this to the list, as well.
-Shall we have a look at some more?
NAOMI: The kids seem happy with this choice. Moving on...
Is it more difficult to park, less difficult...?
It'd be slightly less difficult, this one.
Yeah, this would be slightly... Cos it's a little bit shorter.
Out of the two, which one do you prefer?
-The first one.
-Why the first one?
Cos it's harder to park.
That's the main thing!
ED: So Flick and Lucy have gone for the first van
to really put Dad in a spin.
NOAMI: That's the transport all revved up.
Top of the agenda for any festival is food.
ED: And the girls get planning the perfect cake,
fit for some hungry partygoers.
It'd better be big, Naomi, with the size of this family,
let alone all the guests!
NAOMI: So, we are all here,
and I guess you've got something messy in mind.
Yeah. Seeing as we're all in our wellies,
we thought we might as well get our cake design done.
We want seven pairs of wellies all in a row,
so different sizes for different people.
They're going to be all different patterns on the wellies,
-so they match our individual personalities.
So we get some compost on the floor,
then we get some water so it makes it like mud,
and then we're going to play around in it, take a picture,
and send it to a cake maker.
Let's get muddy!
ED: This is going to be one interesting cake design.
Are the guests really going to be eating cake that looks like mud?
NAOMI: Into the water!
Do it slowly - not all at once.
ED: Watch out, Naomi!
Is this going to be a cake, or just a whole pile of mucky mess?
-NAOMI: A wet wedding cake?
Hope it doesn't put a dampener on the day.
-Three, two, one...
-Come on, come on, Evie, go!
Get your feet all muddy!
Jump, jump, jump, jump!
OK, guys, we need to get into height order now.
The tallest here.
ED: That's you, Christian.
Everyone standing right?
This is what the photo's going to be,
and we're going to send it to a baker,
and they're going to make a cake of all our feet.
Make sure your feet are smiling.
Can your toes please say cheese?
That looks amazing! Look at all our boots, guys!
-Happy with that?
-Yeah. That looks really good.
OK, sending that to the cake designer,
-and this will be the weirdest cake you've ever seen.
So long as Mum and Dad don't mind sinking their teeth
into a smelly-looking welly...
..then it should be fine.
This bunch have fine-tuned their plans
for a wedding to rock their parents' world.
ED: From banging entertainment...
RHYTHMIC DRUMMING AND WHISTLING
NAOMI: ..to colourful costumes....
ED: ..and one crazy cake design.
Jump, jump, jump!
NAOMI: But will it be the smash hit the girls wanted?
It's really scary that it's going to be tomorrow. We're so excited.
-How are you feeling?
-Excited, nervous, but...night-night!
I'm so worried! Goodnight!
ED: It's the morning of the wedding,
and Lucy and Flick make last-minute preparations
for their very own festival.
-Flick, does this look OK?
NAOMI: While Lucy and Flick get into their outfits,
the final touches are being made to Mum and Dad's festival threads.
Now I'm a little nervous.
I have absolutely no idea what is going on at this present moment!
ED: Mum and Dad are quite literally in the dark
about what they're wearing.
NAOMI: But remember, there's still a fluorescent paint job to come.
ED: It's time to get this festival started.
You've dressed for paint splattering. Good idea.
NAOMI: Ah! You two look lovely.
-How come you get the cool outfit?
I don't know why you look so glum, Naomi.
You've actually got the advantage of pitching up later
and staying the night!
SARCASTIC: Ha-ha-ha-ha, very funny.
I've got the perfect track for today's wedding.
# If you like it then you should've put a ring on it
# If you like it then you should've put a ring on it.
# Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh... #
On second thoughts, I think I'm quite con-tent in my own outfit.
NAOMI LAUGHS Tent!
I'll go and get Mum and Dad.
ED: Guys, you are so un-punny.
Let's hope Mum and Dad are feeling festive
after they see what's in store for them.
NAOMI: Mum and Dad, how are you feeling?
-Listen, guys, are you ready to see yourself?
We're going to count down from three,
and you're going to open your eyes.
Three, two, one...have a look!
CHEERING AND LAUGHTER
Our mum and dad seem happy. For now, at least.
ED: But I wonder if they'll still be smiling
once they're covered in paint?
NAOMI: What do you think of your beard?
It is VERY flowery!
Can you guess what the theme of your wedding could possibly be?
Could it be a music festival?
Although your outfits look a little bit plain.
I think we should brighten them up a bit, but first...
Keep your mouth closed.
Put them on!
The girls' plan of colourful coated parents is a winner.
Now, that's much better. Let's get down to that festival!
ED: Easier said than done, Melvin,
because now it's the girls' obstacle course designed to frustrate Dad.
NAOMI: Well, it wouldn't be a festival wedding
without a camper van as your mode of transport.
And, Dad, you might recognise this one as well,
because it comes from your work.
All you need to do to get to your dream wedding
-is just drive through the gates.
But we're not going to make it that easy.
You've got to get through the maze, and there'll be some obstacles,
and you've got to find your rings in the middle of a haystack.
It's that easy!
Hop in! Hop in, in you get, then.
Every journey needs a back-seat driver, so I'm joining you.
I'll try not to distract you!
-Good luck, everyone.
Off you go! Good luck!
How will Dad do?
ED: He's got to go round the roundabout and parallel park...
with Melvin in his ear...
NAOMI: ..and then hunt for the rings.
And they're off!
Nice and easy, easy does it...
ED: Oh, great advice, Melvin.
-NAOMI: Do you think he'll be able to do this?
-It's going to be a challenge.
-Wow, that's tight.
-That is tight!
-That's really narrow.
Will Dad be a smash hit?
ED: Or quite literally smash the course?
So there she goes, now round the roundabout.
He can't do it!
NAOMI: Ooh, mind those bales!
-There goes the haystack.
I think we've definitely demolished the roundabout.
-It's fine, it's fine!
ED: Dad's getting wound up!
Melvin's definitely sending him round the bend.
NAOMI: Next up, let's put his parallel parking skills to the test.
-I hope he can make the park.
-He's doing a parallel park.
Oh, he's going for it.
ED: Will he make it?
NAOMI: Ooh, it's tight, it's tight!
ED: Oh, this is tense!
NAOMI: Melvin's not looking too confident, either.
Ooh, look at that back one!
CHEERING, HORN BLARES
ED: And he's done it!
NAOMI: Now, the super-easy job of finding their rings in a haystack!
ED: Well this should be easier than finding needles in a...
That's it! They've found the rings!
NAOMI: Well done, Mum and Dad!
Yeah! Let's get to this music festival!
-It's your festival!
-Enjoy your festival!
-It can't be a festival without mud.
Welcome to your Marrying Mum and Dad Music Festival!
ED: The girls' hard work and mega planning have totally paid off.
NAOMI: And the whole gang have created a festival extravaganza
fit for the best headline acts.
Right, we're very excited, because we've got a surprise
for Mum and Dad and the kids - they know nothing about it.
-The kids don't know, either!
-Yep. It's Union J!
-How's it going?
-Hey, guys, how you doing?
-We're good. How are you?
-You're looking good!
You'll perform at our music festival wedding, then?
-Thank you so much!
All right, we'll let you go and get in position.
-We'll go and get the family.
-Let's do it!
So, Mum and Dad, we've got a lovely, big, empty stage here.
-Wonder what we should fill it with...
I've actually pulled some strings,
and it's time for our very first act.
-Are you guys ready?
Make some noise for Union J!
# I'll carry you I'll carry you
# I'll carry you
# So you know that I'll carry you
# I'll carry you I'll carry you... #
It was so cool to have Union J,
-cos we didn't even know it was going to happen.
Let's jump together, and you, Melvin!
# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Jump, jump, jump
# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Jump, jump, jump
# Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
# Yeah, yeah, yeah... #
Made it like a real music festival,
with, like, different people and bands and stuff.
# So you know that I'll carry you
# I'll carry you
# I'll carry you Yeah. #
ED: But no show is complete without an encore.
Then they did, like, a special a cappella for Daddy and Amy,
and it was really, really cool.
# So you know that I'll marry you,
# I'll marry you I'll marry you... #
NAOMI: Aww! There's not a dry eye in the field.
-Should we get these guys married?
-Let's go get married!
After a fantastic musical start,
it's time for the main festival highlight
the whole gang have been working towards - marrying Mum and Dad.
Amy, I give you this ring
as a symbol of our marriage, and the uniting of our families.
And with our family of nine, I promise to be there for you all,
and to love and cherish Christopher, Emily and Evie.
Our families mean everything to me, and our children are our world.
Their love, strength and lust for life has brought us here today.
I open up my heart to Christian, Lucy, Felicity and Sebastian,
and promise to love and cherish them always.
It gives me great pleasure to pronounce you husband and wife.
ED: Aww! Two families have now become one.
NAOMI: And what better way to celebrate
than with the wedding cake?
-Three, two, one...
ED: Now, that's a cake with some welly.
Oh, my God, they're individual, look!
Good reaction to a cake!
It represents our shoes and us kind of all coming together
in a...pile of mud, as a family.
NAOMI: So, er... I think we should actually dig in.
Do you want to cut your cake?
-Everyone started eating the boots.
Then Christian ate a whole boot!
He just picked up a boot and ate it all.
This is one wedding cake with plenty of soul.
Can we get a photo? Good, isn't it?
ED: The guys are giving it some welly,
tucking into the edible chocolate mud.
NAOMI: I wonder how many jokes Melvin and I can get in.
Tough as old boots, is it? SHE LAUGHS
That is boot-iful.
ED: Put a boot in it, Melvin!
-No, wait, that's the real one!
That's the cake demolished.
NAOMI: And as the sun goes down,
the gang still have their final smash hit surprise for Mum and Dad.
It is time for our headline act.
Let's welcome them with a massive, great big cheer!
I'm utterly blown away. What an amazing day!
-It was fantastic.
We've made so many memories today.
I can't believe the effort they put in - it has been so, so good.
The day has been pretty amazing.
Yeah, it's been really exciting. Everyone's enjoyed it.
And everyone's happy, which is amazing.
Letting the kids do this...
it's been worth every single moment, and what they've put together
has been absolutely amazing - more than we could ever ask for.
-We're so thankful.
-Yeah, very, very proud.
-This wedding's been a smash hit!
With the final drum roll, that's the wedding complete,
and the festival's winding down.
ED: Well, for some.
Say Olly, Olly, Olly!
Oi, oi, oi!
Well, I've got to say, that wedding totally topped the bill.
Hmm, room for one more track.
NAOMI: 'Scuse me!
Some of us are trying to sleep around here!
