Up and down the country, parents are getting married
in normal traditional ceremonies.
-Normal weddings are quite...
But fear not, Britain, because we're fighting back.
Open your eyes!
Kids have set themselves the challenge of a lifetime.
Quiet on set!
To organise their parents' wedding.
Bring it on!
And to make it a day that no-one will ever forget.
Will they manage it?
I am quite nervous to plan it.
Will Mum and Dad like it?
It could all go completely wrong.
And will they finally say, I do?
We're gonna rock this wedding!
This is Marrying Mum and Dad.
Today's show is a toy-filled treat.
Mum and Dad are boxed up, and blown away.
Open your eyes!
There are surprises in store.
Whoa! This place looks magical.
But will Mum and Dad be the talk of Toytown?
Or left on the shelf?
Time to find out.
This is Marrying Mum and Dad.
The wedding show with a twist.
Yes, you guys are in charge.
Yes, you heard us right.
No need to wash out your ears.
Well, maybe you need to.
All the power lies in your hands.
What you say goes, no arguments!
So let's meet today's wedding planners,
see what they have in store for their unsuspecting parents.
Actually, I think you need to wash out your ears as well.
Today, we're in Birmingham.
With a talented trio of planners who have been toying with ideas
for ways to get their mum and dad married.
This is a 11-year-old George.
At the end of our wedding,
I think everyone will be thinking it's a wacky wedding.
This is George's younger sister Isabelle.
As a wedding planner, I'll know no limits.
And completing the trio is their little brother Harrison.
Our wedding's going to be fantastic!
But, who are the brave couple
'putting' their kids in total control of their big day?
We have Mum Kate.
I am absolutely terrified about giving the children full control.
I have everything down to military precision.
So, the thought of them organising scares me a little bit.
And finally ready to take the "woof" with the smooth, is Dad Ian.
The kids have got a real imagination
an incredible sense of fun,
and I think I'm in for a real surprise.
Not just one, there's plenty coming your way, Dad.
Well, that's what you call a stroke of luck.
So, now we've met the family...
Let's find out what fun and games the kids have lined up.
Our wedding will take us to our favourite place in the world.
We've all our favourite things in it.
And even stuff grown-ups love.
-Because our theme is...
I love toy shops!
Oh, me too! Toys are cool!
Yeah, this wedding is going to be packed with fun and games.
-Oh, maybe we'll have computer games!
-Yeah, and puzzles!
I love puzzles, like this one, that I've been working on for ages!
No, we haven't got time for that.
We've got a wedding to plan, woo-hoo!
George, Isabelle, and Harrison have been hard at play
researching their theme.
But now it's time to turn plans into action.
And the best place to plot, away from pesky parents,
is our mobile HQ.
Here we go. The nerve centre.
-What do you think?
You ready to start planning a wedding?
-This the best place to do it.
So why have you chosen...
..Toy Shop as a theme?
I think toy shop's a good idea, because we like playing with toys.
Even if it's not manual moving toys.
Oh, so computer games as well?
-And my mum has 1,000- piece puzzles.
Oh, she really likes jigsaws?
Ah. And Harrison, why did you think it was a good theme?
Because I love toys, and I want to turn everybody into one.
You want to turn everyone into a toy?
-All the guests?
-Everyone's going to be dressed as toys?
A toy shop themed wedding, now this could be a lot of fun.
Time to get the creative juices flowing.
Where do you think the best place to start planning a toy shop wedding
-Where toys are!
Great minds think alike.
Yes! Let's go!
Isabelle, George, and Harrison have brought me to their local toy shop.
Which just happens to be humongous!
It's for research purposes only, of course.
No, really, it is.
-We better spread out, get some ideas. Go!
This place is a plaything paradise.
And the kids are getting some great inspiration
for their toy shop themed wedding.
Looks like the kids aren't the only ones getting excited.
Calm down, Ed!
Hey, Ed! What are you doing?
No, I'm just building a tower, just one minute!
No, no, no one minute! No!
No, wait! No! I'm building a tower!
-ED CLEARS THROAT
-Research expedition completed.
Come on! This is so unfair!
We need to plan a wedding!
Back at mobile HQ,
the kids get cracking with their wedding planning.
And the first thing to sort out - what we'll all be wearing.
So what ideas has that given you about outfits for the wedding?
We want Mum and Dad to be robots.
Robots. Oh, good.
So Mum's going to be wearing a white dress with lights in it.
So how would Mum feel about being dressed as a wedding day robot?
My ideal wedding dress would be something white, something elegant,
and something with a little bit of class.
Sorry, Mum, you'll have to settle for one out of three.
You will be wearing white, but as for elegant and classy...
So what about Dad?
He's going to be in a silver outfit with a button on the back...
And you turn him on and off?
-And the silver suits...
If only you could do that in real life.
I know, I'd love to be able to turn my dad on and off.
Go and tidy your...
Come on, we need to go to sch...
Mum and Dad are going to be space-age robots.
And Harrison, George and Isabelle
have some out-there ideas for the rest of the wedding day outfits too.
So you're going to be?
A teddy bear!
-You're going to be?
And you're going to be?
I'm happy with the costumes we've chosen,
because they're a bit silly and a bit wacky.
Harrison, George, and Isabelle are 'toytally' fired up,
and raring to go.
Once we're finished with this wedding, it's going to be amazing.
And they're ready to grab the entertainment with both hands.
Or should that be claws?
Well, the entertainment's going to be nice and easy.
We just all get to sit around and play with toys, do we?
We want one of these.
What's this? A little grabber toy?
-Yeah, but bigger.
-You want to make a huge one of these?
Yup! Our mum and dad are going to go in it.
They're going to be lowered down, to grab their prizes.
It should be their wedding rings.
No rings equals...
Quick, quick, grab, grab!
These kids are really going to make their mum and dad work,
or rather play, hard on their big day.
-Further, further, further!
But have they got the gift of the grab?
Forward, forward, back, back, back!
So somehow or other, we've got to figure out how to suspend
Mum and Dad on a rope system.
-We'd better go and figure this out, come on!
-No hanging around!
Turning Mum and Dad into human grabbers
is going to be quite a challenge.
So, with a bit of training from climbing instructor Dave...
Yeah, that's good, big push.
-OK, just start walking down the wall.
It's time to test-drive this tomfoolery
with some target practice.
X marks the Spot.
You've got to try and land on the cross, in the middle.
George up first.
First task for George,
to get right to the top of this scarily high wall.
Go on, George, go on!
-Come on, George!
-You're doing incredibly well.
Come on, George! You can do it!
-You can do it!
-Oh, it looks so hard!
It looks so challenging.
George has scaled the wall!
But now comes the real test.
OK, sit back on your harness.
Can he abseil down and hit the target on the floor?
OK, let's see just how accurate he can be on his landing.
So have a look at your target.
Can you see it?
Pretend it's a wedding ring.
Nice one, George! Practice mission complete.
But how would Dad feel about being dangled on a wire
several metres above the ground?
One of my phobias is heights.
I get nervous climbing a set of ladders.
Sorry, Dad! You might not have a head for heights,
but you're definitely heading for a swinging time.
Come on, George.
I think Dad will be a bit scared,
but he will enjoy it.
Here she comes, here she comes.
And with that crash landing, our human grabber trial is complete.
We are happy with this, as a plan.
-We're going to go with it?
That is entertainment, swung, into action.
It's funny! It's funny!
Harrison, Isabelle, and George
have got the 'rab-bit' between their teeth.
Uh, that's a guinea pig, you fool.
Our wedding is going to be wild.
But have Mum and Dad got the remotest idea what's going on?
It's absolutely terrifying me.
The lack of control and the children,
and everybody else seeming to know exactly what's going on
with the wedding, and I'm not.
Don't worry, Mum, you'll find out soon enough.
What are your plans for the cake then?
Well, the cake's going to be in lots of puzzle-shaped pieces
and my mum and dad have to put it together.
-Like a jigsaw puzzle?
So you need one picture on the top, you're going to cut it up,
and then Mum and Dad are going to have to reassemble it?
Have you ever experimented to see if that works?
-That's why we've got a cake here.
So we're going to decorate the cake. Make some sort of picture.
And then cut it into a puzzle,
and see if we can put it all back together again?
Wait, what picture should we do?
What picture should we do? Something toy-themed?
-We could do a teddy bear.
-Happy with a teddy bear?
-Let's get started.
Time to spruce up our sponge.
Step one, decorate cake with icing tube pens.
-Should I do a big smile?
Don't worry if it's haphazard and higgledy-piggledy,
it'll still taste delish.
-Is that us done?
Step two, cut the cake into several pieces.
Our jigsaw puzzle cake is complete.
Should we see if we can take it apart
-and put it back together again?
Step three, rearrange the pieces into a totally random order.
Well, that's quite jigsaw puzzlesque.
Right, shuffle them up.
And finally, step four.
Reassemble the cake!
OK! Let's start with the corner.
Where did that bit go?
That's just above that.
-There was a piece...
-Just above this one.
I think Mum and Dad will enjoy it,
because they love putting jigsaw puzzles together.
That's not even a whole piece, that's like half!
Did you eat the bottom half?
Are you sure?
I think the cake worked really well,
but I think we need to get some professionals to do it,
not us amateurs.
-There we go, last one.
-Look how perfect it is!
Well, I enjoyed that, even if it looks bit of a mess at the end.
Are we happy with this as an idea?
-You want to go bigger?
Supersize it. Yeah, it needs a bit of modification,
but I think we can say that's cake sorted.
Let's talk about the venue.
-What's it going to be like?
-It's going to be a huge studio.
So that way we can make everything seem big.
Oh, that's a good idea.
So what sort of things does it need to have?
Anything else you need it to have?
Like big, so we can fit the claw machine in.
Of course, because that's going to be quite big, isn't it?
So it needs to be a big space.
Time to hit the internet and find a whopper of a wedding venue.
Oh, that looks big.
That's huge! Look how huge that room is.
This place looks promising, but Isabelle is not convinced.
I was thinking taller.
To me, that looks very tall.
Maybe we should go and have a look.
-..and see if we think it's tall enough.
So where exactly is our venue?
Isabelle wants to find somewhere huge in size.
And the early signs are positive.
Whoa! This door's massive!
Whoa, this is way bigger!
Looks like it's going to be big enough.
Don't think you need to worry about it being small, do you, Isabelle?
-I like the windows, they're very sort of toy shop, aren't they?
-I think we'll be able to turn it into a toy shop,
because we've got quite a lot of space, and quite good height.
-Should we go and have a look around?
-Yeah. Let's go!
Whoa, this place looks magical.
-Maybe this is where we can show Mum and Dad what they're wearing.
It looks like this location is ticking all the boxes.
So what do you think?
I think that was a yes.
That's our venue sorted!
Everyone knows that playing with toy cars is great fun.
But it's given this trio of tricksters
a brilliant idea for the wedding day transport.
While online, we found this website.
Ah! Is this what you're thinking?
-That's perfect, isn't it?
An actual real-life toy car.
So, that's their ideal wedding day wheels identified.
Time to see if it's available.
Hello, it's Naomi from Marrying Mum and Dad
-here with Harrison, George, and Isabelle.
-Hello, how are you?
We're good, thanks. We've got a little request.
All right, OK.
We'd like to borrow your toy car
for a toy-themed wedding.
-And we would love to borrow it for...
Yeah. I should think that's probably OK, let me just check the diary.
Yes, it's clear.
Oh, you've made our day, thank you!
OK, you're welcome.
I think the transport we've found is a bit silly,
but I think it's going to be quite funny.
That's it! Planning put to bed.
George, Isabelle, and Harrison have swung into action.
The venue was a big surprise.
Whoa, this door's massive!
And the jumbled jigsaw cake's gone down well.
Did you eat the bottom half?
Are you sure?
But as their big day looms,
Mum and Dad are starting to get the hitching heebie-jeebies.
Tomorrow is the wedding day.
How are you feeling?
-I'm a little bit nervous.
You should be.
You might be feeling nervous,
but it's too late to turn back now, Mum and Dad.
See you tomorrow!
It's the morning of the wedding.
Inside, the venue has been magically transformed
into a super-sized toy shop.
And George, Isabelle and Harrison are adding the finishing touches.
There's plenty of inflatables in here.
And all that's left is for us to get ready.
Meanwhile, in a nearby toy factory... I mean, dressing room...
The latest must-have new toys are being assembled.
I'm feeling just a little bit nervous.
And a little bit scared.
This is absolutely terrifying me.
I really don't know what's going on.
But what's this? Five toys seem to have escaped from the toy shop!
You look amazing, you lot!
How are you feeling in your outfits?
-You like them?
-Yeah, you pleased?
-Where's Ed though?
Anyone seen Ed?
-Ed, where are you?
I think this is my most uncomfortable
Marrying Mum and Dad costume yet.
Hey, Ed. Stop 'building' up your part!
Yeah, at least I'm not getting wound up.
Don't touch my key, no, don't touch that!
I can't stop!
Right, let's go and get everyone.
Actually, you go and get everyone.
-I can't fit through the door.
-That's a good idea.
Time to get the rest of the toys out of the toy shop,
with a little bit of Toytown TV trickery.
With the guests all secretly gathered,
it's time for Mum and Dad
to see what they're wearing on their big day.
But first, we need to get them into their packaging.
Now that's not something you say every day.
Just keep your eyes closed.
That's Dad-bot and Mum-bot
all packed up and ready for unwrapping.
Three, two, one,
open your eyes!
What do you think?
-You look fabulous!
Have you got any guesses what the theme might be?
And you haven't seen your packaging!
Getting my moves on.
Apparently, Mum-bot, you've got laser eyes.
-So I hope you're not too angry about your costume.
Well, you'll be very pleased to know we have got a cool set of wheels
-to get you to your venue. So
All right, guys.
Your carriage awaits!
Mum and Dad will be taking the long way round
to get to their wedding venue.
And they'll be travelling in the perfect Toytown transport.
-What do you think?
Just like the one you had when you were little!
Perfect, isn't it?
Strap yourselves in, Mum and Dad!
Now the Toytown sat nav will tell you where to go.
It's time to paint the town red.
Uh, and yellow.
They've planned the route
so there's going to be maximum amount of people to see you.
Have a lovely time, we'll see you there!
OK! Bye! See you!
Don't forget to wave!
-See you there!
Mum and Dad's new wheels are definitely turning some heads
as they take it for a spin around town.
Oh, this is funny.
Well, this is definitely one comedic car journey
that Mum and Dad won't be forgetting anytime soon.
But we've got a wedding to get to.
Time to get Mum-bot and Dad-bot back to their toy shop.
Here we go!
-How was that?
It was really good fun!
Did anyone recognise you?
-Well we've got loads more fun coming up,
so let's get you into the venue!
The next phase of this toy shop adventure is about to begin.
Mum and Dad's wedding rings have been hidden inside these boxes.
And they'll need to transform themselves into human grabbers
-in order to get them.
No rings equals...
But, how will they react?
Let's find out.
Look at this.
Now, you may have noticed that you haven't got your wedding rings.
-And that's because some cheeky monkey has thrown them in there.
That'll be me.
-Sorry about that.
-But don't worry,
because you can use the human grabbing machine to get them back!
So, if you want to get married,
you better become the human grabber.
With their kids manning the controls,
the first parent to get strapped in and suspended in the air
is height hating dad.
But will he be able to keep it together and retrieve a ring?
-Dad, which way?
Oops, they've sent Dad the wrong way.
He might be here all day.
But has he locked onto a target?
-Sounds like it.
Yes, careful. We don't want to get spiked by a unicorn.
Dad's closing in.
We need some pinpoint positioning here, kids!
Maybe you need to go this way a bit.
And he's got it!
But the mission isn't complete.
Dad still needs to retrieve the ring from the box.
Don't drop it!
Or you won't be able to marry me.
-Is it in there?
He's got it.
He's got it, everybody!
Dad's done his bit.
Now it's Mum's turn to get into the swing of things.
But will she get the hang of it?
Mum's up and running.
But will she be able to spot her box,
which has been sneakily hidden under a banana?
This isn't a swimming challenge, Mum.
Oh, it looks like she's located her prize.
-Down, Harrison, down.
Mum's locked on and closing in.
Inflatables are flying in all directions,
Mum's definitely on a mission.
-Come on, Mum!
And she's got the box!
But there's still some work to do.
Careful, careful! It's in there!
It's in there!
Oh no! Mum's going to drop the box!
She's done it!
That's it, rings rescued!
And mission accomplished!
Should we get them married then?
Finally, the moment has come.
After 13 years together,
Kate and Ian are about to step into the grown-up world of married life.
And it's all thanks to a doll, a dinosaur, and a bear.
AKA, Isabelle, Harrison, and George.
I pledge all of my life to you.
I will love, honour, and respect you.
I choose you as the person with whom I will spend rest of my life.
I will always strive to fill your life
with laughter, romance, and happiness,
and ensure that our love and passion for each other is nurtured
and grows stronger throughout our lives together.
It is now my great pleasure, and privilege,
to declare you to be husband and wife.
With Mum and Dad married,
it's time for the next part of this toy shop extravaganza.
The wedding cake.
We are about to create possibly the biggest wedding cake
Marrying Mum and Dad has ever seen.
It's a puzzle cake.
And you've each got a piece of the puzzle in your hands.
So, toys, let's see if we can assemble the cake!
The table's in front of you,
if you want to come forward and see if you can piece it together.
Right, the red bits will be the sides, tops, or corners.
The cake has been divided into 50 small pieces.
And every wedding guest has a piece in their hands.
Anyone else got an edge?
Bring me your edges.
But will they be able to work out which piece goes where?
Top corner up there, maybe?
There's a bit of confusion early on.
This certainly isn't a piece of cake.
Corner, which corner?
It would help if we knew what the picture was
that we're trying to recreate.
Anything you'd like to tell us, Ed?
Oh, sorry, everyone!
I've just found this!
Now we're talking.
Just one more piece to go, and it's only fair that Mum has the honour.
There we go.
The cake's complete!
Now, let's eat!
Start dishing it up.
So as the guests tuck in, has this toy shop-themed wedding
ticked all the boxes for Mum and Dad?
Today has been just hilarious.
From start to finish, all I've done is laugh.
Yeah, it's been fantastic.
Had a really good day. It's been great fun.
-We've had a really good time, haven't we?
I think we were awesome wedding planners,
and I think our mum and dad and all our guests had a great day.
If we were to score this wedding out of ten,
we would give it a massive ten.
What an amazing day!
George, Harrison, and Isabelle really made that come to life.
I feel quite 'toyful'.
Ed, listen! The shopkeepers coming back to open up the toy shop!
Oh, that's weird, what are those old worn-out toys doing
-in our lovely shop?
-Oh, yeah. We should chuck those in the bin.
They're rubbish anyway.
Oi! Who're you calling rubbish?
Who said that?
