Jayney wants her say in his wedding. I'm from the East End. Always lived
here, never moved out. I am proud to be an East Londoner. I know I've
got an accent. But I don't care what anyone thinks. Pressure's on
as his mother-in-law is determined to give her daughter an East End

going to be like. Or could this be the mother of all disasters?
having the last say without a Daisy and James met just two years
ago. And 18 months into their whirlwind romance, they welcomed
baby Florence into the world. came around quicker than expected
didn't it? Yes. It all fell into place. It felt like it was meant to
be. James gave up his south London life to be closer to Daisy in
London's East End. They've been inseperable ever since. What
attracted me to Daisy, how crazy she is and unpredictable. We don't
know what she's going to do next. I liked that about her. You're such a
cheat. That was in. When I met James, my whole life chainked. He's
very kind, considerate, though he is very laid back, which Sir
Tateing. But there's no-one else I could ever imagine spending the
rest of miff -- my life with. There's another East Ender in their
relationship, the mother of the bride, head strong Jayney. Me and
my mum's relationship is not a normal relationship. We see each
other every day. We are very close. But she's very fiery. If I know
something's right, why should I listen to someone else that's wrong.
Because I'm your mum. If you're wrong you're wrong. Yeah but I'm
not. Jayney hopes that teaming up with James to plan the wedding will
bring her closer to her stubborn daughter. I hope it brings us
closer. I hope I get it right. I really hope. If I get it wrong,
I'll blame James. But mother and daughter have very different ideas
on the perfect wedding. My dream ceremony would be outside, under a
gazebo, surrounded by trees, just something very beautiful and
elegant. It's not going to be this big event that's all in your face.
Because I am loud and brash, it doesn't mean that's what I want my
wedding to be. I want a big, family East End wedding. All aunts, uncles,
lots of food, dancing, knees up. Probably a couple of punch ups,
that's an East End wedding. Most brides would love their mothers to
be involved in the big day, but with this controlling mum, will she
forget it's actually Daisy's day and not hers? You are quite
controlling and you want everything done a certain way, but if James
wants something done, tell me what you want doing and I'll do it.
you don't like it, you won't do it. Well I just do it how I like it.
That's the thing. Come on, come on. With mum set on an East End knees-
up, will James be able to stand up for the wedding he wants. She will
try to take over. She'll play James at his own game and manage to get
what she wants. Daisy's mum is very opinioniated. For me, I just need
to make sure I do put my foot down in terms of what I want If he
thinks he can do it all his way, he's wrong. He is a bit a pushover.
If I really wanted something I could get it.
With a pushover groom and a monster-in-law, will there be a
wedding show down? It will be a man thing. You know when he thinks it
will be his own ideas, and it's not. Don't go. I have to. I know.
scared. I'm well nervous. See you later. It's time for James to leave.
It will be three weeks before they see each other on their wedding day.
I love you. Love you. Give Florence a kiss for me. Every day. See you
Emotions are running high, as not only is she saying goodbye to James,
Daisy will have no contact with her mum until the big day.
To not be able to see two of the most important people in my life,
it's quite heart wrenching. I don't think I really fully got it until
James left. It's only now sinking in that I'm not allowed to speak to
them, I'm not allowed to hear his voice or to hear him tell me that
he loves me. It's quite strange. It's a strange feeling after all
this build up and I think that's scary, obviously me and Jayne have
to become a team now. No turning back. Ziet -- despite
his deserves James arrives at his mother in laws. Being a tree
surgeon James wanted an outdoor wedding. With this weather he's
come up with a cunning plan. You're here. You've left her. Yeah I left.
Was she all right? Was she crying? Upset, yeah. I had a rough idea.
It's going to sound crazy, but an indoor garden party. So if you find
a complete blank canvas. In this weather? Well indoors. What
AstroTurf floor and stuff? Yeah, because you can hire AstroTurf.
for God's sake James. A bit of shrubery. Mum's not impressed.
Maybe his venue will win her over. So if you could choose where you
got married, where would you get married? It's a light house.
James we're getting married round here mate, we're not going to some
beach or something. Bear with me. It's London's last ever light house.
For God's sakes, James! James' reception idea didn't exactly light
up this house. He heads off hoping his garden idea will grow on Jayney.
I want Daisy to have an East End wedding. He's threw me big time. I
don't want plastic palm trees. I don't want plastic flowers. It's
going to look crap. I know what James wanted, an outdoor wedding.
It's not happening. It's just not happening. It's the first day of
venue hunting. Unconvinced by James's garden theme and desperate
for an East End wedding, Jayney takes James to the Black Lion pub,
a proper East End boozer and the place where she had her wedding
reception. This is the sort of thing that I was envisioning, if we
could have, yeah? OK. This is what you had in mind? Yeah, this is a
proper East End pub, isn't it? Yeah... Do you no what I mean, it's
got everything. It has got everything. Sparkling entertainment,
local charm and fancy decor. Do you not like it or...? It's not that I
don't like it, I just don't know if it's, sort of, don't take it the
wrong way, I don't think it's good enough, I don't think Daisy would
feel... Do you not think she would like it in the black lion then
where I got married? Oh, yeah. Awkward. To me this is perfect.
I've had really good times in here. Parties? Yeah. Funerals. I'm still
learning the East End way of weddings, so... You'll get there.
You're educating me. Can the 300 unvarietyed guests fit into the
pub? Wouldn't have it as a wedding venue. One, it's two small and I
don't think it will be impressive enough for Daisy and everyone else,
the rest of the guests really. James convinced that Daisy will
hate a pub wedding, they head to East London's Docklands, to see his
ideal venue, London's last light house. It's very unusual. Yeah.
Jayney doesn't sound too convinced. But it ticks boxes. It's in the
East End for her and it will fit the garden theme. This really is a
light house, in fact it's light on pretty much everything, toilets,
kitchen, heating, furniture, it will need a lot of work. It's not
your ordinary wedding venue. No. In terms of creative Leeway we could
do whatever we want or? Pretty much. We even had somebody AstroTurf the
front for a launch. It seems the stkpwarden theme is still a thorny
issue. If James can stand his ground, he might be onto a winner.
Down in south London, days Daisy is seeing bridesmaid Rebekah to see
her favoured venue. The Rose Garden where James proposed. I don't want
to come here too much and ruin it. It's nice to remember. Where did
you sit? There on the steps. Daisy has even plotted the details of her
dream day. I can just imagine like standing say like at the top of the
steps with a nice altar, everybody sitting in chairs with big white
bows on. That would be really pretty. If the sun was shining like.
This And all ribbons, everywhere, in the trees. You wouldn't mind
getting married, even if it was freezing, minus ten? It's not going
to take very long. I'll be my own something blue. You can be the blue.
What would be the worst thing he could do? In like an old football
club or like in a pub. How can you get married in a pub? Our ideal
venue would have been like a big pub. Hang on, whose wedding is
this? All the old pubs are small rooms and everyone would be split
up. In here everything's together. That's what I really want. It looks
like James halls got his way with the light house. He might not have
much say of what goes in it. This isn't an East End pub by any
stretch of the imagination. Wait till I'm finished. I'll got my bar
and the sofas. I'll make a snug somewhere. I hope Daisy likes it.
We're worried about us. She hasn't got a choice now. Sod Daisy.
Reception venue sorted. But it cost �2,500, it's got no heating,
kitchen or toilets and the mother- in-law wants to turn it into a pub.
Could this light house send the With Jayney deciding to turn the
light house into a boozer, James has met up with his best man Scott
for a beer and a whine about the mother-in-law. How is Daisy's mum?
Fine. She's strong willed and like, quite opinioniated. She's quite a
strong character. You're going to have to charm her. I was telling
her about my secret garden sort of theme. I like that. You can deck it
out with trees and you know like, say you got married outside, but
you bring it inside. Do we get grass? I don't know. That's what I
suggested about hiring AstroTurf. Jayne didn't like that. Jayne wants
traditional East End wedding. Pie and mash. Yellied eels. Your
future mother-in-law taking everything over, we'll all come in,
regroup and get it back on track for a South East London wedding.
Done. Buoyed up by his best man, James and dragged Jayney to south
London in search of a ceremony venue on his side of the river.
carpet treatment. She deserves it. I don't know, after this, no.
This is the Nelson Room. You have the views of Canary Wharf straight
across, the O2 there, and to the left Central London. It is nice,
isn't it. The south Londoner James, the location and venue is a no
brainer. I think I've fall anyone love with it. Jayney is down in the
mouth about being down in the south. We've sort of gone off of what we
was thinking of doing. It was going to be like a proper East End
wedding. But if you really want it, it's your wedding as well James.
Yeah, I think it's perfect in every way really. I can't see anywhere
comparing to this now. At �500, James is sold. With his southern
ceremony, and quirky reception venue sorted, James is a happen yip
boy. As soon as we walked in, I fell in love with. It it ticks all
the boxes in terms of character and quirkiness. I am ecstatic. This is
my excited dance. So happy.
But mother-in-law Jayney is no mood for a celebration. With no East End
boozer and her daughter getting married in south London, her plans
for a proper Cockney knees-up are falling apart. At home with her son
wally she can't help but think she's being pushed out of the
wedding. I thought he knew that's what was meant to happen, it was
supposed to be a joint effort. He can have some of his ideas. I'm not
saying that. Only some of his ideas? He can't have it all his own
way. It's a joint effort. South Londoners you can't take them
anywhere, mum. I just really thought he knew that we wanted like
an East End wedding because that's what we wanted. That's what we were
doing. It was East End wedding, above a pub, gellied eels and pie
and mash. Then it's a light house. Oh, and AstroTurf floor or whatever
it is and I don't know, plastic things. Maybe he thought it's my
wedding, I'll try and sort it myself. What do I do now then?
What's my part in this then? What do I do? Try and tell him. It's
your daughter's wedding and you want to be part of it. You've got
to sort it out. I could really hit him. Will you tell him with me?
Yeah. We'll gang up on him. We'll have him. Oh, God. It's the start
of week two. And with tensions running high, James has decided to
take best man Scott to pick out Daisy's wedding dress. Daisy's not
easing going enough to be oh, I like it, it's fine. She doesn't
like one thing about it, then it will be burnt probably. Jesus.
I think as long as I go in there and am decisive, don't mess around,
then I'm sure it will be fine. have a lot of wedding dresses here.
Mother of God. Jeeds us Christ. It isn't going to be as easy as I
thought. What about this one? Simple, sexy. This one? My Nan had
that as a table cloth once. Oh, I don't bloody know. Meanwhile in
Essex Daisy is window shopping with her sister Florence. It's no easy
task for a fussy bride. It's really sparkly. I don't like the pleating.
That would make my bum look bigger. That looks like a cake. Like a
dollop. Exactly. You can't decide on a dress yourself, let alone
James. He has an impossible task. Trying to breathe. Definitely the
most nervewracking part of the wedding. If you get it wrong...
She'll be furious, absolute lay furious fi get this wrong. Hence
why I'm so scared. You haven't seen Daisy furious, it's in the a pretty
sight. That's only the half of it. There's also the mother-in-law to
worry about. That's making it more nervewracking, because it's not
just what Daisy is going to see and like it. It's if Jayne will like it
as well. There's the worry that we will clash at some point. At times
we probably have had to bite our tongue any way. Well, actually,
I've had my tongue bitten constantly. With no clue where to
start James has one tactic, try everything. Don't know. I don't
know if it's too puffy. Next... Next. There's a lot of bling on it.
I don't know. This is so difficult. For God's sake. Just pick one.
James is struggling, but fussy Daisy has found a perfect, fuss-
free fishtail dress. I actually like it. Look at your waist. Look
at your figure. Oh, wow Daisy you look beautiful. I'm just speechless.
It's not all fussy and... Yeah I think it's more simple. There's a
bit of glitter on it, which is OK. I want this dress. I want this one.
I don't want another one. I want this one. You sound like such a
child. He's not going to get this dress is
he? No, he's not. He's been dazzled by a sparkly A line with lashings
of lace. That looks very nice. I like the detailing. I like that
actually. I think that's the decision. It's not simple, it's not
fishtail, but at �895, it is Daisy's. Do it. Time to celebrate
in the pub. Ten minutes in skwaims James gets a call from an anxious
mother-in-law. She wants to see the wedding dress and she wants to see
it now. She's worried about what I've chosen. She's actually said
that? Yes. Now I'm nervous. She's a scary woman. Let's head back to the
dress shop. Moment of truth. Feeling sidelined by James's venue
decisions, Jayney has arrived determined to take control of the
wedding. I need to see it. I need to know
that it's right, so I really needed to come today. And the realisation
that her daughter is getting married is finally hitting home.
just keep thinking like it's really happening, she's really getting
married. I think, I know they've got a baby together, but I feel
like I'm losing her in a weird, she's going to be gone. I don't
know. Just feel a bit sad. Breathe. God help me. How do you think
you've done. Do you think you've done a good job? Yeah I'm confident
in my decision that I've made. It hasn't been easy, put it that way.
You're making me unconfident. No? I don't like it. I really don't
like it. I'm really sorry. I don't like it. What don't you like about
it? I think it's too fussy. What do you mean? All the lace and that on
it. It's not Daisy at all. Do you hate it? I really don't like it. I
really, really don't like it. Oh, James she's going to look like Big
Fat Gypsy Wedding. She won't like it James. I wouldn't have chose it
if I didn't think she'd like it. feel really bad saying that. How do
you think I feel. Torpedoed. hoping and praying that she tries
it on and love it's because, I want to prove you wrong on this. I hope
you do, James. I won't know that now until the day she tries that on.
It's been a big knock to my confidence. I feel deflated now.
I've heard her say not just that she hates it, and she said that
Daisy will hate it as well. I feel like the mother-in-law from hell.
He must hate me at this points. I hate me, so I must -- he must hate
me. It's my daughter's big day. I'm not going to mince me words just to
be nice to him if I think he's got It's the morning of the hen. But
after two weeks of coping with baby Florence alone, she's not in the
mood for a partyment She's got a cough and a cold. She keeps waking
in the night. She has woken me at 5.30am every night. Last night I
didn't sleep at all. It's been harder than I could have imagined.
I didn't think I'd be as alone as I have been. I just want this all to
be over with. I don't even care about being married. I just want
James and my mum back if I'm being honest. I don't care any more. I
just want James. I'm just exhausted. Who wants to go out on her hen
night when they're exhausted? Who wants to go out like that? I know I
don't. Whilst Daisy is stressed about being alone, James can't wait
for a break from his mother-in-law and his stag in Soho is the perfect
chance to let off some steam, in a pink boa. It's been a ridiculous
couple of weeks planning the wedding. It's nice having a laugh
and being me, mucking around and not caring about what's going on.
Forgetting all the feminine side for a good few hours, until I wake
up. In East London, Daisy's mood hasn't lifted as she sets off for a
mystery destination for her hen. better not be where it looks like,
we're heading towards, if it is it's going to be shit. Things go
from bad to worse, as she works out she's going to her local pub.
would you go to the Fox on your hen do? Why? Because there's drink and
music. Where did you want to go? Somewhere that we don't go all the
time. Why would you go to a local pub on your hen night? Why? Would
you do it? Would you? Think if it was your hen night, what would you
be doing? He's probably gone out it a big club, had a really good time
with all his friends and I'm in a shit pub, round the corner from
where I live. Why would I want to be here? Give it a go and see what
you think. If this is him trying hard, I dread
to think what the wedding's going to be like.
The surprises keep on coming. Unable to attend her daughter's
party, Jayney can't resist showing her face somehow.
What was supposed to be a motherly joke has fallen flat. Just horrible,
it's just horrible. It's a bit cruel to have pictures of my mum
over and over again. It's like rubbing salt in the wound that
she's not here, she should be here. And I've not seen her. And I'm
tired and I want my mum. What girl doesn't? It's just... It's just
awful. I think Daisy's had a stressful day.
She's used to having my mum. There every day to help her out.
Hopefully she'll appreciate my mum a little bit more when this is all
over. Daisy decides to put on a brave
face. And with the help of her friends, starts to enjoy herself.
It's a bit hit-and-miss to begin with. Once Daisy sorted herself out,
got into it, it was all good. to be able to just socialise and
chat to people I haven't seen for a little while and not feeling so
lonely. That's been quite good. took a while by Daisy's finally
smiling. At the stag, James has managed a
cheeky smile of his own. To my sister Daisy, and the man she's
chosen to marry, James! James hasn't escaped his mother-in-law
completely. She sent along her son with a few words of warning.
have got to remember that like it's the most special day of my sister's
life she's ever going to have on next Sunday. And you've got to make
it happen. You've got to make sure that every single thing is in place
for her to have the best day. I trust that you will make it happen.
Just have faith and you will be With less than a week to the
wedding, James's blank canvas is still, well, blank.
With nothing booked the light house venue has no catering, toilets or
furniture. Back in East London, Jayney has her eye on the budget.
With costs spiralling, she's convinced something has to give.
She's desperate to ditch the light house. The light house basically, I
think it's coming to too much money. Especially when you add on the fact
you need toilets and you need to completely decorate it from top to
bottom. Daisy said to me, like, don't take over and you know, do
everything that I want to do. I think she's going to be surprised.
This basically is James has sorted it all out. He's organised it all.
He know what's he wants and he's getting it. But he still has to
think about costings and price. I wanted a proper bar. Obviously I
wanted a pub and couldn't get one. I want to make parts of the venue
look like a pub. I know we ain't going to do it perfect. We can try.
At the moment if you have no money, you can't buy a bar. We will end up
with a big shell. That's what I'm frightened of. I want it to look
really nice when Daisy walks in. I think everything's coming to so
much money. On the plus side this is the perfect excuse to switch
venues to say, the East End pub that Jayney's wanted from the
outset. I have somewhere in mind. Hopefully, he might agree to it. I
know he wants his lighthouse. first things first. It's time for
Jayney and Daisy's ten-year-old sister to meet James at the shops.
He's been picking out Violet's bridesmaid dress. We have matching
once for baby Florence and Violet. Things I really don't want is if it
goes like that and looks like a ballerina but on stilts with a
massive tutu goes to the end of the earth. Would Violet wear that?
it's got caramel on it. I'm not wearing that. Oh, all right.
sure she would fit into that. colours would you wear? Black, gold
and indigo. Oh, no, James is in trouble. If he picks out a dress
and I don't like it, I refew to wear it. She's not kidding. Poor
James, another difficult East End Madam to deal with. How's it going?
Good, so far. The tough one to please now. Little Violet. Is he in
trouble? Yes. He might not be. should run in fear. Give us a call
if you get into trouble. You're not safe. It's like a stand off isn't
it? Yep. Ready to try them on? Come on then. With mum making a
crafty exit, James is left to deal with Violet alone.
It looks like a one-year-old is chasing a load of butterflies at
the seaside and I'm not wearing it. That's the end of the story. I
don't like it. Can I see the back. It looks really nice. You look
pretty in it. Not wearing it. face. Do you want to try the other
one on. Yes. Go on. I ain't wearing it. Why not? Because it's got a big
flower on it. This across here and that's horrible. It goes really
long and that's horrible. It's all over and completely and utterly
disgusting. Well that's James told. It doesn't get any easier. What
about this one? No. This one? They're all horrible. You'll of
them. Had enough about two hours ago. Finally there is hope. She
might let him live after all. That's nicer. I'm hoping and
praying she comes out and love that's dress. Then that can be done
and we can just go and buy. It How's it going? Has she been a
nightmare? Yes. Tried on two, she hate -- hated them. She has the
last option on. Might need a mother's nudge. Violet have you got
the next one on? Yeah. Can I have a look? Do you like this one? Yeah.
Oh, good. What do you think of that one?
It's not bridesmaidy enough. Can I look at the others please.
they're horrible. Can I look at them on the hangar. They're hideous.
Go on then, get it off. Sensing another dress disaster, Jayney
can't hold back. I'm not having two of them wearing horrible dresses.
Daisy's dress is hideous. I'm not having her in a hideous dress.
put the worry into the wedding dress again. This is almost like
going wedding dress shopping with a miniature Daisy. I'm glad I won't
be there when Daisy tries hers on. Even though I'm sure she will love
it. James needs some good news. Sadly, he won't be getting any, as
Jayney wants to confront him about her light house issues. I know we
have lots to -- to still do. Today I got quotes on a couple of things.
The caterer, he's saying about �3,000 for the food and we haven't
got tables or chairs. You don't think we can do the light house
whatsoever. James we can't afford it. We can afford it. He wants it.
Look at his face. Look little sod. I feel so bad. Do you think we can
afford it? You need to find out how much it is to hire all this stuff.
Table cloths, tables., chairs. I know I was quoted today �1.75 per
chair. It adds up. Yeah. Do you mind coming to look at it. It is a
good option. I swear to you. I wouldn't go there if I didn't think
it was. Reeling from the financial reality check, Jayney has persuaded
James to see an East End pub just two miles from her front door.
do you think of the outside of it? It doesn't look terrible. I've seen
worse. I think it looks really pretty from the outside. I think it
looks quite nice. Apart from the green windows. Is mum finally going
to get her East End wedding? It's not the light house James wanted or
the garden Daisy wanted, but it is the pub Jayney wanted. You notice
something, it's warm and there's tables and there's toilets. Don't
start. It's got everything. What do you think? Are you still concerned
that she's not going to like it? Slightly, but I'm at the stage
where like tough luck for her really. I'm not being funny right,
if you say yes to this, I'll do whatever you want. I'll AstroTurf
the floor, I don't mind. I think it's lovely. What do you think?
Yeah, I think we should speak to him. I'm Paul nice to meet you. To
hire the pub it costs �200. What do you think? I think it's a really
good idea. I really do, but I don't want to... I think it's brilliant.
I don't want you to feel you've got to do it because this is something
I think it's a good idea. I want you to know in your heart that we
can't afford to do everything to the other place, whereas in here,
we've got a good starting block in here? I think we'll take it for
Sunday. Yeah? Yeah. OK. Lovely. When we first walked into this
place, I was feeling really disheartened. I was close to tears
because I'm gutted at myself really because my ideas were so big and
really disheartened that I couldn't do what I did want to do for Daisy.
I knew she would be impressed with the light house if she saw it. Now
she's not going to see it at all. It's a bit gutting really. Now it's
just a case of going and doing whatever we can do just to make it
the best of what it can be really. Jayney has finally got her way.
With a fully furnished venue, at least there will be a wedding. But
it's shattered James's romantic dreams.
With two days to the wedding, mum is going full steam ahead. With her
pub wedding on track, she even has time for diamante DIY on Daisy's
wedding shoes. These have taken four hours of blood, love, sweat
and tears. It's just a bit taxing. Especially when you've been doing
what I have for the last few weeks and you're tired and worn out, and
then, instead of going to bed, and sorting yourself out, I'm sticking
diamonds on shoes. Hopefully she'll appreciate the amount of effort
I've put in. But then, it's a bit of bling on your wedding day. Look,
J for James. The other has a D on James might be gutted about losing
his light house, but there's no time to sulk. After saving money on
the venue there's just enough left for the wedding essentials. First
up is baby Flo's outfit. I'm worried about the size you know.
Maybe I should do a test. Pretend - pretend this is Florence. Such a
man thing. There you go. I think that will fit her. I'm pretty
certain it will. OK that's the one. Baby done, it's time for the boys.
Lunge test. Done. Team James.
And keeping his garden theme alive, James has got his hands on
artificial turf. Good Lord. Look at the size of this
beast. Wait, wait. You need to lift then
push. It's in. I'm actually stuck. Shit. Quit
goofing around. It's been ape successful day.
It's the day before the wedding and James and Jayney are dressing the
pub. Good, it ain't half heavy. mum's got her East End boozer,
she's even conceded the turf war. But for Daisy it's been a lonely
three weeks and tomorrow she'll finally be reunited with her mother
and James. Before that, she needs to try on the bridal dress.
I feel like I have quite high hopes. Yeah. High expectations. If he
doesn't live up to it, he's in for a world of pain. She want aid plain,
fuss free fish tail dress for her big day. What will she make of the
dress James loved and her mother hated? If James had made the wrong
choice, I think she would question whether she should marry him as
well. Because that's a big thing. There's a lot of dress. There's too
much sparkle and it's A line. There's even more glitter on the
I really thought I was going to I don't like it. It's not you at
all. It's too much. It just looks like he's walked in, shut his eyes
and gone, I'll like that one. quite shocked actually. Look at all
the glitz at the top as well. at the lace. It looks like the
curtain in the bedroom. Do you hate it? I really hate it. I hate it.
What the lock is that about? What I'd rather go down the aisle naked
than wear this dress. How much is the dress? �895. Christ.
�895 for that piece of shit. We need to call James and tell him.
Please answer. Hello. Hello James. Hello? It's not good news. It's bad
news. She really hates it. Really hates it. Yeah. She's pretty much
devastated. Can she change the dress? Yeah, but there's not a lot
of money left now. I can't buy a brand new dress. OK. All right then,
I'll see what I can do. She's not going to wear it.
Please don't say I told you so. you feel gutted. Sorry. I knew she
wouldn't like it. I knew she wouldn't. To be honest with you,
she wouldn't have liked what I picked either. I know Jayney said
she hate today and I was still confident in any choices. I feel
gutted for him. I wanted to be wrong. I wanted to think, yeah, he
knows her. No, no, no. Don't like it. No. That's really pretty. That
surprises me. It's a Princess style. It's kind of like vintage actually.
It's the same price as the other one. It's not fish tail, but it is
Yes, a million per cent. That's beautiful on the top. It's gorgeous.
I really like it. I think it's lovely. I feel like I'm getting
married in this dress. Mummy has a present. A lot of effort has gone
They're wicked! It say J on it. The other one has to have a D. She look
so nice on. Oh, Daisy. I love them. I'm perfect. So happy. The sun's
gone down but we're making the sun shine.
It's the morning of the wedding. Daisy has spent a restless night at
her sister's house. I didn't sleep much, but I think that's probably
to be expected. Since James ruined the dress yesterday, it has made me
feel a little bit more anxious. Over in East London, daisy's mum is
having last-minute jitters. really stressed. It's just the
evening venue I'm a bit concerned about. But you can't have
everything, can you? She hated her bridal gown, so what will Daisy
make of the bridesmaid dresses? you look lovely! Yous look lovely,
really nice. Look at you! My little fairy Princess. I think James has
done a good job in picking their dresses. Bridesmaids done, it's
time for Daisy's big entrance. Oh, Daisy. It's perfect.
You look so beautiful. I feel special. You look very, very
special.Ive Feel really comfortable in a weird way. Does mummy look
pretty. Do you think daddy will like it. And for a Cockney bride,
Oh, James, you absolute joker. the ceremony venue James has found
the perfect way to calm his wedding day nerves. I'm pretty relaxed at
the moment, most relaxed I've been through youpt the whole thing.
Steady as a rock. For mum Jayney it's been a long three weeks of
separation from her daughterment Daughter. Really looking forward to
seeing her. I've missed her terribly. I hope she's missed me
when she sees what we've done. Fingers crossed. She'll soon find
out. Are we here? Where are we? Inside the venue, mum is steadying
her nerves. My daughter's getting married. It's quite nervewracking.
I'm worried she's going to be disappointed. I don't want her to
Don't you're making me cry, mum. You're going to ruin my make up.
Sorry. It's all right. You look lovely too.
Do you like my dress? Oh, it's lovely. Better than the other one?
After all her hard work, Daisy's dad is giving Jayney the honour of
Musica Para la Batalla Give my Can I have you back now? Yes, you
can. You look beautiful.
I missed your bottom. We are here today to witness the joining and
marriage of James and Daisy. I call upon these persons here present to
witness that I, James William, do take thee, Daisy Patricia, to be my
lawful wife. I call upon these persons here present to witness
that I daisy take you James to be my lawful wedded husband.
It's my pleasure to declare that you are now husband and wife.
Congratulations to you both. I'm so relieved to have James back.
Daisy Hamlin. Sounds weird. Basically I'm just over the moon.
It all went lovely and she's happy. That's all I wanted. I might have
been more emotional with the dress we picked but she looked stunning.
I know that you tried hard with the dress I know. What are you talking
about, I'm still going to take the credit for that dress. Absolutely
beautiful. What did Daisy make of the south London ceremony? It's
nice that we are looking towards East London when we were doing our
vows, we're the south side of the river. It's the best of both words
and we have a lot of history here. You fell over just down there, just
literally outside this pub. Shut up. It was all going so well. I hope
the venue afterwards is up to scratch. This is difficult to beat
I think. He's done good. It wasn't just in a normal bar or something
or a normal pub. Well the ceremony wasn't. But the
reception is. The pressure's on for James and
Jayney. I don't want to get it wrong.
it not give you more confidence knowing how I reacted with the
first one? Be afraid, be very afraid. Why are
you trying to make me nervous? I'm not. I'm only playing. I'm not
saying nothing. I don't want to put a negative thought in her head
before she gets there. No, she'll be pleased. I know she will. That's
why I'm not saying anything. Basically stop.
For a bride who didn't think an East End pub was good enough for
her hen do, will it be good enough for the biggest day of her life?
We're here. OK. It looked like an office block, if I'm honest. She's
unimpressed with the exterior. James and Jayney's hopes rely on 40
metres of fake turf and Cockney charm. Here we are, your archway to
herve. I like the arch. Is someone going to open the door for me or is
someone going to let myself in. Daisy, daisy, give me your answer
# I'm half crazy all for the love of you #
She's delighted. I think. Or in shock. It's lovely. Whichever.
Oh, it's so lovely. Auntie violet made all the bunting. Did she?
Loads of it. I love the flowers. chose the flowers. Well done, you
did very well mummy. Oh, is this for the kids to play? Oh, it's so
lovely. And the adults. Take that dam hat off. What's the matter with
my hat. Mummy done good. Mummy did do good. Mummy and James did good.
I love the AstroTurf, I think it's awesome. High five Jayne. You've
done it. Despite clashing ideas and a last minute venue change, the
groom and his mother-in-law have pulled it off. I'm really happy
that Daisy is happy. She love it's. You know what it is though,
everyone's here. Everyone's having a good time. That's what it's about.
For mum, it was always about the family knees up.
I'm not being funny, do you want to go to a poncy, do you know what I
mean, sit down. We didn't want that, did we? We wanted it casual,
everyone to feel comfortable. I think everybody does. Daisy is at
ease. She's really enjoying herself. As the night goes on, she's going
tone joy herself even more. It's perfect, if I'm honest. You have my
mum and James have come together and put this together and they've
created something that, in a weird way, suits both sides and everyone
smashes in the middle, has a good time. Mum even arranged for some
East End cuisine. I tried a gellied eel for the first time in my life.
I went to the other side of the river and had a gellied eel. The
taste was nice the texture wasn't. I don't know if I will go to the
other side again. I think I'll stay this side. Yeah. The gellied eels
might be an acquired taste but pie and mash is going down a storm.
It's very unique. I think it's wonderful. Good technique. It's my
favourite food. James done very well to pick pie and mash. Your mum
actually. My mum picked it. My mum's amazing. These three weeks
have been very stressful. They've made me realise how much I do rely
on you and depend on you. But I don't think it will change our
relationship. It's just brought it to our attention. Made you realise.
Made us both realise. No made you realise. Depend on you. Good.
Everything's perfect. I couldn't fault the day at all. Really?
was wonderful. Give us a kiss. Thank you.
That's what I wanted. It just goes to show that sometimes just
sometimes, mother knows best. First toast should be to me and
Jayne for actually sorting this wedding out. Jayney! I was worried
about how if we would argue, but we haven't. We have got on really well
and made a good team. We're so completely different. You're a
stronger character to me. It's strange though, because I think of
myself as quite calm and laid back. Obviously I'm not. OK. So it looks
like despite the hurdles, and the mother-in-law, James has managed to
pull off the perfect Mother's Day present for daisy.
Who'd have thought that a Cockney knees-up with an indoor garden
theme would turn out to be a marriage made in heaven? If I'm
being utterly honest, I can't even remember what I would have done
because today has been so wonderful. I can't imagine my wedding day to
be any different, because he got it To all your mummies out there, have
