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'm 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 going to rock this wedding.
NARRATORS: This is Marrying Mum And Dad.
On today's show...
..we've got two planners hoping to steer this wedding
in the right direction.
But will it be the high-flying experience they want?
Or is this wedding heading for a crash landing?
Welcome to Marrying Mum And Dad.
The only show that puts you guys in charge of planning
-an actual wedding.
-Yeah, but not just any wedding.
No, no, no. Your parents' wedding.
Ha! Amazing, right?
Today, we're soaring to Greater Manchester...
..where two planners are ready to create one amazing wedding
for Mum and Dad.
Meet 11-year-old India.
I think my mum and dad would really like
just like a quiet, laid-back wedding,
but that's not what they're getting.
And her cousin Amelia.
I think we'd be great at planning the wedding
because we're good at working together.
It's just going to be absolutely crazy.
Mum and Dad don't know what they've let themselves in for.
This creative pair have been working hard to get a wedding off the ground
for India's parents.
Don't mind not knowing what's going to happen.
I can't wait for the surprise on the day.
Well, Dad seems chilled, but is mum Lucy as laid-back?
I'm not worried about what they're planning but, then again...
When they get together...
You don't know what they're going to plan!
That's what we like to hear!
Well, our two planners are ready to mix this wedding up.
Completing this family is baby sister Isla.
Who's in charge of keeping Mum and Dad's noses
out of the wedding plans.
So, now we've met the family,
let's see what this dastardly duo have in store.
Ladies and gentlemen, please pay attention to your cabin crew
as they go through the safety announcements for today's wedding.
Please take your seats as this wedding is preparing to depart.
If this isn't the wedding that Mum and Dad want,
oxygen masks will fall from the ceiling.
You're going to need to buckle up,
as this wedding is about to take off.
Because our theme is...
I love flying, and I'm a pretty awesome pilot as well.
Oh, wow, Ed!
You're really good at that model aeroplane.
If the girls need a pilot, they need look no further.
Imagine, that could be us, up in the clouds,
flying to the wedding.
Oh, this is going to be great.
Just got to land it now.
Maybe I need to practise my landings before the big day.
India and Amelia can't wait to get this wedding ready for departure.
Oh, yes! Wherever I go, the Marrying Mum And Dad HQ comes along as well.
Time to get down to business.
Let's go on board and plan this wedding.
Oh, this is so good.
Right, so remind me what theme you've chosen.
And why have you chosen that theme?
Because India's mum and dad, my auntie and uncle,
really love going on holiday.
-Oh, do they?
And what are you imagining will happen on this day?
What's it all going to be like?
We were thinking of having an aeroplane or a private jet maybe,
something like that.
An actual aeroplane? An actual private jet!
For transport, yeah.
So my mum and dad will think, "Oh, we're going abroad!"
Get really excited, and then they just get to, like, Liverpool,
-And then fly home.
So you want to get Mum and Dad on an aeroplane
so that they think they're flying somewhere really tropical
and amazing and actually they'll just fly somewhere quite nearby.
Yeah. When they arrive, I want all the guests to arrive a bit earlier,
so we can wave my mum and dad in so my mum and dad feel special.
A big welcome party for them.
-Oh, they'll feel like very important people.
So, India and Amelia need a plane
for their jet-setters wedding transport,
and where do you find a plane?
At an airport, of course.
This one. Let's have a look.
-Looks like Amelia's onto a great idea with Hawarden airport.
A small but perfectly-formed private airfield in Wales.
I think it's time to go plane shopping.
You said you wanted your mum and dad to arrive on a jumbo jet.
Well, what have we here?
Well, it's no jumbo jet, Ed, but it's a good start.
I thought I'd start small, and then we can work our way up.
Not only do they get to look around the plane,
they actually get to go up in it, too.
We're really excited and we can't wait,
and I'm going to sit in the front and help fly it.
You what? Did India say she's going to fly the plane?!
I'm nervous about her flying me, because she's probably going to...
I don't even know!
Can I suggest we buckle up for this flight?
Quite a loud way to arrive at a wedding...
And we have lift-off!
I don't know why I'm waving. They can't see me at all.
And now, at 2,000 feet,
India's about to fly this thing.
You have control.
You're not panicking, are you?
I actually got the chance to drive it.
I got to say where we were going and how we were going to do it, like,
fast or slower.
It was really fun.
Our planners are natural high-flyers.
This would be anybody's dream transport, right?
Best transport to a wedding?
Don't know, helicopter or something.
That's a tick from Dad.
What about Mum?
My main fear is heights.
Control, we might have a problem,
as Mum's terrified of being up high.
This wedding might not even get off the ground.
But a little fear like that's not going to stop our planners' ideas.
-How was that?
-It was awesome!
So what did you think of it as a plane?
-For the wedding?
I'd say not this particular one, just because it's quite small.
But any aircraft that's bigger, with more seats.
Yeah, but we're definitely going for the aircraft.
..for this high-flying wedding transport.
Next stop on this jet-setting wedding journey is outfits.
Who's wearing what?
Mum and Dad are pilots.
-Oh, right, yeah.
-Me and India are being cabin crew.
So, if we've got this airline company,
we probably need to come up with a good name for it,
a good logo and uniform.
You had any ideas what the airline could be called?
I like it! Had any thoughts of what the logo might look like?
-A wedding ring.
-And then wings coming off the ring,
so it's a wedding WING.
Wahey! Well, I need to see this idea.
Get drawing your... wedding wing rings.
Oi, leave the puns to me, you guys.
There's no winging it with these ideas.
The girls' designs for their logo are really starting to take off.
And, in no time at all, we've come up with three high-flying ideas.
You've got big As, wedding ring at the top.
Nice! We've definitely got some good starting points there, I think.
Time to get designing their top-of-the-range cabin crew get-up.
There you go.
Nice pink cap.
What about drawing like a line of blue there?
-And then drawing a flower.
An important part for a flight attendant is the hat.
I think this looks really nice.
-Yes, flower buttons.
That's flowers, the scarf and the shoes sorted.
IndiaAmelia Airlines outfits.
Shaping up nicely!
This is one eye-popping creation.
Should we make the cabin crew smile?
Cos look, they're so happy with all these things that are happening
on their wedding day!
And, with the logo added, that's the girls' colourful uniforms complete.
Yeah, that looks really good.
It's good, isn't it? Though we say it ourselves.
Can we say that is a big tick for outfits?
-That's the cabin crew costumes ready for take-off.
With transport and outfits in the bag...
India and Amelia have brought me back to Hawarden airport
to find a high-flying wedding venue.
What are we looking for venue-wise?
We're looking for a big space that's airport related.
Well, we're in an airport. And I can see lots of big spaces.
So this is looking good.
-Apparently there's one down here we should check out.
Let's go look.
Oh, they've parked my plane in the wrong place again!
I said there, not there!
Honestly, these people.
Looks like a potential venue has appeared on the kids' radar.
So this one's free, apparently.
Big doors. BOTH: Yeah.
It looks good.
We went into this big space.
So we could have the doors shut with all the guests inside
and then they have to open the doors and...
Oh, there's a big reveal?
We sorted out what we're going to put in there,
and how it's going to be set out and stuff.
What are they going to see when the doors go back?
Holiday tickets with where we've been to.
Dangling from the ceiling.
All your different holidays? That's a good idea.
We wanted planes in there, too.
Suitcases scattered around.
The ideas are coming thick and fast from this pair.
Do you want to have a look inside, then? BOTH: Yeah.
Ed, hope you're keeping notes.
We want Mum and Dad to get married here right in the middle.
We could have the two palm trees, couldn't we?
-Oh, that's a great idea.
-The sunset behind it.
In the middle here? BOTH: Yeah.
-Our venue's perfect because we know what we want, don't we?
You reckon your mum and dad could get married here?
-Right in the middle of an aircraft hangar.
It's every parent's dream!
Is it really? Let's ask Mum and Dad.
On a beach somewhere,
nice and quiet.
Just being somewhere hot, and having it quite intimate.
There's nothing quiet about a busy airport.
Or intimate about a massive 500-square metre hangar.
But the girls are still aiming sky-high with all of their ideas.
Aeroplane high five!
That's the venue spun into action.
So how are we going to entertain everybody on the wedding day?
-We think we're going to do an obstacle course.
Mum is going to wear a plane outfit.
You're turning Mum into an actual plane?
But it's going to be really difficult for her to move about.
So we need to get Dad or you to help her navigate her way
-through this course.
Have you got any knowledge of how planes are moved around
-and steered in an airport?
Have you ever seen that happen?
-I've always wanted to but never actually have had the chance.
Well, I wonder if we could make that happen for you.
Well, your wish is my command
as I've set up a special challenge to equip the girls with
everything they need to make
their plane-guiding entertainment a reality.
You don't get much cooler than this.
See, I told you I had a private jet.
They're not fooled, Ed.
All you've got to do is marshal this into that space over there.
There are some marshalling bats in there, and some ear defenders.
Let's see how you do.
This task will hopefully give the girls all the inspiration they need
for their marshalling entertainment.
Remember, on the day it'll be Dad guiding in a plane...
I mean, Mum.
I was wiggling all over the place there like a worm.
Well, the kids are enjoying it,
but is this really our parents' idea of fun?
On a beach in Jamaica, that'd be lovely.
On a beach in Jamaica with a DJ.
-Blasting out some tunes.
-Yeah, that'd do me.
Sorry, Mum, but you're going to be the star of this entertainment,
taxiing round an obstacle course.
We found marshalling really fun and it was really exciting to do.
Careful of my wings! This is a very expensive piece of equipment.
We definitely know we want marshalling on the wedding day.
It's just going to be a load of fun, really.
Stop, stop, stop!
BOTH: Sweet! Is that Mum and Dad's entertainment in the bag?
BOTH: Yeah! Woohoo!
Marshalling madness on course for entertainment.
Next, the girls turn their attention to the cake
and for this they have a very unique take on in-flight meals.
Right, let's get our mouths watering.
Let's talk about the cake.
I'm guessing you've got some mischievous ideas up your sleeves.
We're thinking of doing a sort of station where you decorate cakes
and there's lots of cream,
and then we're going to create some fake turbulence.
We're going to get Mum and Dad to serve them to the guests.
And we're going to go, "Mum, here's a slice for you," and go...
Straight in her face.
You're just going to put the wedding cake in your mum's face?
So you want decorating cupcakes, you want turbulence with chaos...
-And definitely lots of getting Mum and Dad very messy.
-Some great ideas there,
but I think we need to formulate a plan.
Don't worry, Naomi, I've got this one covered.
I'm the hostess with the mostess
and I'm going to show them how to serve food
thousands of feet in the air.
Can I interest you ladies in some refreshments?
BOTH: Yeah. We've got Marrying Mum And Dad nuts
because any mum or dad who agrees to be on this show is nuts.
Ed was trying to be a bad hostess.
He started throwing a big, massive full-cooked chicken.
He was a bit silly throwing the roast potatoes on us.
I slaved ages over that.
It was really funny, and I think that will inspire our cake,
Give it up, Ed, your rubbish hostess skills aren't needed.
But at least it's helped the girls visualise
their trolley dash cake service dreams.
India and Amelia have completed all their pre-flight checks,
including in-flight meals...
..colourful cabin crew costumes...
This is coming on nicely.
..and high-flying entertainment.
I was wiggling all over the place there like a worm.
They're on course for this jet-setting wedding to take off.
But as the big day draws closer,
India's getting worried about Mum.
She's not getting scared at all.
She's quite confident about it,
so I'm thinking of ways to scare my mum.
Would you like to go on roller-coasters?
Are you sure?
I'm not going on a roller-coaster.
That's more like it, Mum.
It's the morning of the wedding.
And at a top-secret location near the airport,
pilots Mum and Dad are getting dressed and ready for action.
I'm feeling nervous, sick and excited.
I'm very nervous about what's going to happen today.
I'm sure India's planned a great day,
but, oh, I just wish I knew what it was, now.
So we have our two pilots, all we need now is a plane.
Here we go.
-What do you think of that?
-That's so big!
It's bigger, and it's better.
-Bigger and better?
-That's the plane ready for take off
but our pilot parents are still in the dark
about their jet-setting theme.
I've no clue what India's got me dressed in.
I know she's been doing World War II,
so I feel like maybe an evacuee or something?
Well, let's hope they don't reach for the ejector button
when they discover what the girls have in store.
All right, girls, what do you think about the outfits?
Have they come out to your liking?
-I think they look great.
Yeah, just like we designed, aren't they?
What are you particularly pleased with?
The badge and the hats.
-Yeah, just like we drew.
-Flight MMD276 is nearly ready
for boarding. Can all cabin crew please make their way to departures?
That's us. We'll go get Mum and Dad
so we can reveal what they're wearing!
With the passengers and crew on stand-by...
It's time for Mum and Dad to find out
just what they've let themselves in for.
What is going through your mind right now?
I haven't got a clue.
Not a clue!
On the count of three, you can open your eyes. Three, two, one,
open your eyes!
CHEERING AND LAUGHTER
Look at the shoes!
-Your guests like it!
-The shoes are great, aren't they?
What do you reckon the theme is?
Not a clue!
Well, you're dressed as a pilot.
With the theme and outfits going down a storm with Mum and Dad...
..let's hope their transport reaches equally good heights.
But remember, being thousands of feet in the air
might not be Mum's idea of wedding bliss.
My main fear is heights.
Mum and Dad, as today's very special guests,
you get to travel to your wedding in style.
-It looks scary.
-It looks scary?
-Are you feeling a bit nervous about this?
-Are you? Why?
-I'm not a fan of heights.
This isn't looking good.
Will Mum get on that plane?
So are you happy to travel to your wedding on board this aircraft?
Are you going to do it?
Deep breath. Very deep breath.
Good on you, Mum.
She's not letting her fear stand in the way of marrying Dad.
But as she takes her seat,
the enormity of the situation starts to kick in.
Welcome on board to IndiaAmelia Airlines.
Please ensure that your seat belts are tightly fastened.
As the plane gets ready for take-off...
Just in case you need them, there are sick bags
in the back of the seats in front of you.
There's no going back for Mum.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have lift-off.
And we're off the ground!
It was a bit scary at first, and we're going...
hitting a few bumps.
How are you doing, Mum?
A bit better now we're up in the air and not...climbing and dipping.
Well done for conquering your fear of heights, Mum.
Now you can sit back and enjoy the rest of the flight.
Meanwhile, back on solid ground, Ed's rounding up the wedding guests.
This way to the hangar!
Wish we had some camouflage netting we could put over our heads.
Bit worried they might see us from up there,
especially when I'm wearing a bright pink tie.
I wouldn't worry, Ed. We're having a great sing-along.
# We're all going on a summer holiday
# No more worries for a week or two! #
Ladies and gentlemen, the captain is getting ready to land.
Please ensure your seat belts are safely fastened
and you remain seated for the rest of the journey.
Oh, that's a bit quicker than we first thought.
Any ideas where we might be ending up now?
Not a clue.
-Not a clue?
I don't think we're in Spain or Barbados, I'm afraid.
Nope, nowhere overseas at all.
This airport should look a bit familiar to our pilots.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the arrival of the flight number MMD276!
Because it's exactly where they took off from.
Well done. Thank you for flying with us.
They might be safely back on the ground,
but if they think it'll be plain sailing from here,
they'd better think again...
..as it's time for the girls' misguided entertainment.
The girls have got these paddles, they're going to direct you.
So without looking,
you are going to direct the aeroplane using your voice commands.
Direct it around the course.
It ends up here at the aisle, and then you can get married.
All we need now is a stone-cold pilot
with nerves of steel,
who looks at danger and laughs in its face!
Where are we going to find someone like that?
Don't worry, Naomi, I know just the person.
Oh, they're busy. Mum will have to do.
A steady start by Mum, edging her way onto the course.
Dad's trying to communicate with Mum via telepathy.
Good paddle action there from the girls.
Oh, she's hit a cone.
And is now heading towards some children.
Someone better stop her. She nearly ran over the guests!
-The other left!
-The other left!
She really has it in for those guests.
No, don't run over the guests with a plane on your wedding day!
Back, Mum, back!
For goodness' sake!
Dad's still adopting the silent method.
Not sure that's the right approach.
Oh, mind the camera!
Well, this is turning into a disastrous run for Mum.
I'm definitely cancelling my booking with IndiaAmelia Airlines.
-When she gets back to the hangar,
she'll really need to work out what went wrong.
Shout, Dad! She's making a right old mess of it.
You're not giving me no directions.
Direct me. Forward.
What does that mean?
She had so much promise but failed to deliver.
-Is that left or right?
-Where are you going?
That's not the way to the aisle.
Where's she going?!
This performance will be the talk of the taxiways for years to come.
They've made a complete pig's ear of this.
You're not supposed to cheat but I'm going to let you,
so that Mum doesn't drive into the wall.
Helped by the marshals,
she's back on course and through the finish line.
This will be one she'll want to forget.
With Mum safely back on the ground,
we've gathered in the hangar
and India and Amelia's hard work has really paid off.
It's all been for this.
After 13 years together,
our pilot parents are making their final approach to say "I do".
I take Lucy to be my wife...
-I take Lucy to be my wife...
-..my best friend and my co-captain.
..my best friend and my co-captain.
I, Lucy, take you, Michael, to be my husband,
in clear skies and thunderstorms.
It gives me great pleasure in pronouncing you husband and wife.
APPLAUSE AND CHEERING
Oh, Mum and Dad are about to start their new journey together.
They're boarding their flight to married bliss.
But first stop on their route, the cake.
Well, Mum and Dad, now that you're both married,
it's time for some wedding cake.
Crew, are you going to be serving up?
-Because the pilots don't do anything, do they?
They just sit in the cabin with the autopilot on.
So I'm putting my foot down.
They've got to serve the cake today.
All right. Well, Mum and Dad, it is easy.
You've got a trolley with lots of cupcakes on it.
Each cupcake will need some cream and some sprinkles.
But this is Marrying Mum and Dad so we can't make it that easy for you.
The loser must eat...
..the cupcake of doom!
Hold on, that looks like any regular cake.
Ah, but not when you add chilli,
egg, sprouts and peanut butter, Naomi.
Now that's one nasty cupcake!
Good luck to our pilots.
I don't envy the loser.
Let the in-flight cake service begin.
Mum's off to a flying start, and is icing this.
-But what about Dad?
-Oh, he's a quick icer.
I've never seen anyone ice so quickly.
Oh, this is going far too smoothly.
I think we need some...
Oh, air turbulence!
Oh, it's getting rocky, but that's not stopping Mum and Dad.
What are they going to be eating, Amelia, if they don't succeed?
Go, go, go!
Now all they've got to do is dish them up to their passengers.
Get one, Tracey!
It's neck and neck for the final few cakes.
But there can only be one winner.
Dad won! Dad won.
With Dad completing his icing first,
it means Mum has to do the forfeit.
It's time for you to eat the cupcake of doom.
But will she eat it?
Look at that.
Or will she be reaching for the sick bag?
She's done it!
And if eating that wasn't bad enough,
India's sticking to her plans of pieing Mum right in the face.
I think you've more than earned your real wedding cake.
Cake of doom conquered, and now it's time for Mum and Dad to cut
-the real thing.
Who'd like some cake?
No Brussels sprouts on it, I promise.
As the fellow passengers tuck in,
has this been a high-flying experience for Mum and Dad?
It's been a lovely day.
-We've had a great time.
-They've achieved so much.
They've done brilliant.
A really thought-out, really good job they've done.
And has the day soared for our wedding planners?
Today, the wedding was amazing.
It was well planned by us,
and everyone enjoyed it.
I'm completely proud of them.
Yeah, very proud, yeah.
Why are you eating the cake? You're staff.
We're amazing wedding planners.
Well, that's one wedding that's reached new heights.
There you are, wondered where you'd got to.
-What are you doing?
-Just doing a bit of plane spotting.
-Yeah, I'm very good it.
I can spot a plane from miles away.
Oh, there's one over there.
Your novice eyes can't spot it.
It's quite clearly a Boeing 737 3K2.
Are you sure? That looks more like a bird.
That's the difference between amateurs and professionals.
CAWING AND SPLAT
Oh, maybe it was a bird, actually.
