Vu and Naomi are in love. They've been engaged for a year,
but Naomi's been picturing her wedding for a lifetime.
Naomi's been planning her wedding since she was a foetus!
My dream wedding would be to get married in a castle.
Naomi may have champagne tastes, but she and Vu don't have the budget to match.
Unfortunately, it's a big white wedding
which was absolutely terrifying cos it was gonna cost an arm and a leg.
So, we're giving them £12,000 towards their big day.
-No, no, no. Definitely ivory.
-But there's a catch.
Every single decision between now and the wedding will be made by Vu alone.
Does worry me cos I don't know where he's going to start.
He and Naomi have agreed it in the presence of a lawyer.
Once signed by both parties, it will be binding.
And the bride will know absolutely nothing until the big day.
-I need to sort out a photographer.
-Four weeks apart will push their relationship to the limit.
-I just really miss him today.
So, will there be big ideas for entertainment?
-How about animals?
-What about fireworks? I thought about...swans.
Will Vu get every little detail right?
Seriously, six-year-old kids can do this!
And can he choose the perfect dress?
I bloody hate dresses.
Can this man give his bride a day she will never forget?
I'm happy I've blown the budget... cos it's gonna be good!
This programme contains some strong language.
26-year-old Vu Aglamaz and 25-year-old Naomi Vane
met five years ago.
They moved in together after nine months
and have been inseparable ever since.
He's a fantastic bloke. He makes me laugh. He's...
very kind, genuine, erm, and we get on really, really well.
We're like best friends as well as being a couple.
She's a lovely girl. Erm...
She's very, very considerate. She's very, very, er...
And she's gorgeous!
I love you.
A year ago, Vu popped the question.
Vu whisked me away to the Maldives for a holiday,
and he wrote, "Will you marry me?" on my back in sun cream.
It was just one of the best moments of my life.
I am, er, a bit of a romantic, erm...
..as corny and as cheesy as that sounds.
It's nice because, when you do make a gesture, she really appreciates it.
-What would be the costing on that?
-Estate agent Vu's long hours mean that Naomi manages their home life.
He is quite disorganised and a bit forgetful.
a friend and a PA...
and a wife-to-be. She's really useful!
Today, reality hits home.
Naomi is moving out of her home in Birmingham and in with her sisters
100 miles away in Hertfordshire.
It will not only prove to ourselves, but also to our friends and family
how serious we are about each other and how we want to spend the rest of our lives together.
Vu will have only four weeks and 12 grand to organise the wedding.
If I can run an estate agent's every day, erm...
and we do a good job of it,
I'm pretty sure I can organise a wedding. It's just a day!
Have you got everything?
It's only four weeks.
-It'll be worth it.
-It will be worth it.
-I'm gonna miss you.
-I'll miss you too.
-I promise you it'll be the best day ever.
-I promise you.
I'll be looking forward to it.
-I love you.
-I love you, too.
The biggest day of Naomi's life is now in Vu's hands.
The next time they meet will be at the altar.
With just four weeks to arrange everything, Vu's going to need some help.
He's persuaded his brother and best man, Sello, to lend a hand.
Hey! How you doing? You all right?
-How you doing?
-Getting ready for a wedding!
I am a salesman, effectively,
and I just rush into things, and he's a little bit more calculated.
He'll step back, and he's probably a little bit more analytical than I am.
When it comes to sort of money matters and stuff, er...
I like to think I'm the wiser one out of the two
even though I'm younger!
Wise he may be, but the boys have only been
to three weddings between them, and Naomi has some very definite ideas.
I've always visualised a castle...
with me being driven up to it in a horse-drawn carriage.
That would be fantastic.
I love the idea of a castle because it's a big, grand building.
You feel like a princess for the day.
Whereabouts is Kent?
That's real nice.
Vu's determined to get his princess her fairy-tale castle,
so the search is on.
They've got two to see, 200 miles apart.
First up, a medieval pile an hour and a half away in Leicestershire.
I've got absolutely no doubt in my mind at all
that this can be done in four weeks.
I can't believe people take a year to plan a day!
That's just excessive. That's because...there's women involved!
He's not arrogant, Vu isn't arrogant,
but he is very confident.
You are gonna witness...
some real crisp decisions being made
and some executive decisions being made on the spot.
You just have to go with your instincts sometimes.
This is a little bit further than I thought.
I'm angry inside.
Why are you angry?
Because you're making me do all of this...
..to use up my holiday!
It's quite a nice drive in. Gotta be making notes on this, mate.
"Nice drive in."
The grounds are nice.
The castle's massive!
Built in the 11th century,
Rockingham Castle has played host to 14 different monarchs.
It could be perfect for Princess Naomi.
I think that she'd want something really romantic and nice and...
Vu would want something flash.
But secretly, I think Vu's a bit of a romantic as well.
-Welcome to Rockingham Castle.
-Thank you very much.
-Nice to see you.
Operations manager Andrew Norman gives them a guided tour.
It's a fantastic thought that there have been people like you and I
looking at this view since 1071 when the castle was first built.
If the day is like this...
it would be absolutely perfect.
-Isn't this lovely?
-I really like this.
This is the great hall, built in around 1200.
-So, this is where the ceremony would be?
All this grandeur comes at a price, but the estate agent in Vu
-can't resist putting in a lower offer.
-CELLO MUSIC STOPS
-As it stands, we're looking at a budget of 8,948.
Erm, for me personally, we were looking to spend ideally seven.
-I can't compromise my standards.
-I understand that.
I'd love you to compromise the castle hire fee, erm...
I've already reduced it by 25%.
I know. I am very, very grateful.
Please...don't think for a second that I'm not!
I'll knock off £500 more...
and that, erm, that's it.
We're down to eight and a half thousand.
That's still more than two thirds of his budget,
which would leave him under four grand for everything else.
If it weren't for Sello, Vu would be sealing the deal.
You should see somewhere else because if you're not decided on the venue by Friday,
that means you've not sent invites out, you're not gonna get them done over the weekend.
If Sello wasn't here being the voice of reason, I probably would've walked out of there
shaking the man's hand saying, "Great, let's go, let's get some invitations booked up."
Erm... But that's exactly why Sello is here, cos I do need a sensible voice of reason sometimes.
So it's off to the next castle,
but it's not nearby.
We are driving to...
from...Leicestershire, and, er...
178 miles away!
what are we doing?!
This is all for the one-day spectacular.
You'll be all right, mate.
I'm still your brother!
If it's anything like this and it's overlooking the sea...
I'll be even happier.
As Vu puts his foot down, Naomi's at a family dinner
with her four siblings. There's her brother, William,
and Hannah, Abbey and Agnes, who'll be her bridesmaids.
I just want Naomi's wedding day to be her perfect dream wedding,
you know, the best day of her life.
I hope nothing goes wrong and I hope it is her perfect day.
-Aren't you worried that Vu's not done anything at all?
I know what he's like in his spare time. He likes to chill out, play golf.
-So, he's choosing your shoes?
-Yeah, he's choosing everything.
Shoes, dress, underwear, tiara, everything.
What if you hate your dress?
I'll probably cry and refuse to wear it!
-Have a big tantrum.
-Would you really refuse to wear it?
Yeah, if I hated it, I would not wear it.
Back on the road, it's dawning on the boys that their plans
may already be falling apart at the seams.
It's so far away!
Seriously, this is crazy distance.
-What's the time?
-Twenty to eight.
And, like, 128 miles left.
Back at her sister's in Hertfordshire,
Naomi's oblivious to the miles her man's covering and is getting used to life without him.
I haven't slept in a single bed since I was living at home,
which was a long time ago, so it's very strange.
I do really miss him already cos he's the one person
I can tell everything to, I talk to him about everything.
He made me so happy from the minute I met him, and I just knew within about two weeks of being with him,
he was the one and we were gonna be together for a very long time.
When he goes shopping, he'll pick something up and go, "I like that," try it on and buy it.
he might use that policy arranging the wedding, who knows!
The good news is, the boys have arrived at Deal Castle in Dover.
The bad news is, it's 10.30 at night.
It's so dark... SELLO LAUGHS
It's so we can't see the surroundings!
I can't believe how close this place is to the sea.
I can't believe you've made me view a property at this time!
I can't believe how dark it is!
I can't believe...
-this lady's here showing us around at half past ten!
-Hello at last!
-Welcome to Deal Castle.
-SELLO AND VU LAUGH
The views of it are amazing.
The blue sky as well. You could see France earlier today.
In the sun...
Picture it in the sun.
It wouldn't be pitch black.
I'm so annoyed that it's dark! I wish I'd got here in the day.
-This is the gate house, where the guests would come in.
This is real pretty.
Built in 1539.
-This is... This is a proper castle!
-Yeah, it's really impressive.
Deal Castle is half the cost of Rockingham, but in the dark,
is it only half as inspiring?
Right, this one, I think because it costs less,
you could spend more on the decorations and give it your own feel.
-Once you pay eight and a half thousand...
-It leaves me with very little.
You've gotta think to yourself, the budget is a big factor in this,
and you've gotta think I've gotta buy a ring, the horse and carriage,
-the band, the entertainment.
-The wedding dress.
Geez. Yeah, it's gonna...
And that's, like, gonna take you a few thousand over your budget.
HE SIGHS DEEPLY
Thank you for today, mate.
-Seriously, thank you very much for today.
-Oh, let's go home, I wanna go to bed!
Right, let's get driving.
-You got any speed garage?
-No, only the drum AND the bass!
After 700 miles and over a thousand years of history,
Vu's got one big decision to make.
Kent. Not going there.
The next morning, he's in a philosophical mood.
It was absolutely mental! I don't know what we were doing.
We were just on a... We were just on a mission of...
faith and thinking, "Right, this place will be perfect.
"It doesn't matter if it's dark, we'll be able to see it in its glory and it'll be amazing!"
And the castle was nice...
It's just, couldn't see, like, the key feature of it, which was the views.
That's too far.
I want the big fairy-tale castle wedding with the horse-drawn carriage,
and the nice lawns and the nice views.
Which is why I'm in a real pickle
because Rockingham had all of that. It's just the cost.
..it was perfect.
Almost a week in and Vu's yet to make a deal.
Maybe he'll have better luck with the wedding rings.
I've got a real good idea of what I want.
I'm gonna go in there, tell them, they're gonna give me a price, I'm gonna knock them down on the price,
we're gonna have a deal, shake hands, bang, that's it, done.
And that's kind of what I was hoping was gonna be the running theme of this whole process.
Just the venue's killing me! Absolutely bloody killing me.
I need to close the sale. I need to get something booked, done, ordered,
so that I can start the momentum.
I've always, always been like that, and I need to get this started.
Cos at the moment, there's nothing to show for anything.
Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter is haggler's heaven for a salesman like Vu.
But this is a one-stop shop mission.
Third one down on the bottom box.
-The flat, yep.
-OK, that is a nice one.
Very easy to make. Can be made in a few days as well...
-so we can get you that...
-I like that. It's fantastic!
It's bizarre. I don't wear any jewellery. I don't have any jewellery other than my watch. Ever.
Erm, so it is... It's bizarre having it on.
-That's my ring.
-I'm happy with that.
I hadn't budgeted more than, like, £900 for the rings.
-Well, we've got a total of £1,440.
-If you can do it for £1,000, I'll gladly walk out of here today and, like, shake hands and...
What I can do is knock off £290, and do it for £1,150 for you.
What if I thin the ring out, then?
It'll bring it down to around a thousand.
A thousand? Thousand?
-You're a good man.
-We'll be on bread and water for the rest of the week!
I'm gonna get one of these. Every time I book something, I'm gonna ding it!
With his first deal finally in the bag,
all of his confidence comes flooding back.
we'll be done.
We'll be done, and I will be on this bean bag
sleeping, watching the football.
Get in there!
Spurred on by his success, Vu makes an important phone call...
to Rockingham Castle.
I'm very well, thank you.
I would like to, er, confirm a booking with yourself.
I'm gonna be going for the 25th if that's OK.
It has resulted in a... destruction of my budget,
hence the reason I was negotiating with you so hard.
It... It's absolutely annihilated it, unfortunately.
I've still got the rest of the wedding to arrange!
One less problem. One less problem.
25th, bang, done. 25th is sorted!
So, he's got a venue and a date. But he's still got to think of a theme.
And he's struggling.
It's really rubbish brainstorming on your own.
It's absolutely rubbish cos you only get one trail of thought
and you don't get anything to inspire you. Erm...
But I'm probably gonna go for, er...
for red, erm...
as a colour. So I'll probably keep it red and ivory or red and white.
Yeah, I might try and tie that in with...
Turkey in some way, cos it's the same colours as the Turkish flag.
I am Turkish, I was born in Turkey, my mum and dad are Turkish, and I think it'd be nice,
bearing in mind that I've been brought up in two cultures, to have a little element of both in there.
I think it'd give a bit more meaning for Naomi because it's something that she's marrying into.
I think she'd genuinely appreciate that.
Ten days in and Naomi comes back to Birmingham to collect a few things from their house.
Before now, the longest she's spent away from Vu is two nights.
Wonder what he's been up to.
It's not too messy.
Because I haven't got Vu to talk to or to see or anything,
it feels like I am single and it just makes me think how much I...
don't like that life any more...
and how happy I am in a relationship and how happy I am with him...
and I wouldn't change that for anything. I'm so happy and looking forward to getting married to him.
He hasn't made the bed today, but, erm...
I can let him off for that one!
I'm sure he's very tired. I might do it for him actually.
He'll get home and he'll be like, "Who's made my bed?"
It's nice to be home, but, erm...
it would be nicer if Vu was here obviously.
I just really appreciate what he's doing cos...
he's doing it all for me really at the end of the day and, erm...
It just makes me feel really grateful and...
..just shows... It's, like, his way of showing he loves me, I suppose.
And that just makes me feel sad cos I can't see him and I can't...
sort of say thank you or anything and like...
So, erm, you know...
No, I just really miss him today.
Can I just get some tissues?
Vu's too busy to be pining for his girl.
He's got a venue, a date, two rings and a colour scheme.
Now he needs to think about the details.
He calls in Sello and usher Gary to help.
What are you gonna have that people... You've got a brilliant venue,
but what are you gonna have that'll make people walk away and think, "Wow! That was a..."?
That's why we're here. Red and white is the theme, or red and ivory.
I wanna have two table plans, one on the left with the Union Jack.
So the red and white, with the table plan on, and the other one
with the Turkish flag in red and white with the table plan on.
-Quite cool. Good theme, good theme.
-You can get these rose petals,
I think they're synthetic,
to put around the centrepiece. You can have that red and white or...
With men, I think it's in our nature to leave things to the last minute
and everything always seems to get done and sorted, so I think we'll be all right.
-It must be so easy being the bride. You just turn up and everything's ready!
-Not in a normal world.
The groom has to stand there and make sure everyone's all right, get them to their places,
whereas the bride just sort of sits down,
arrives in, like, a nice car and then...
-You have a lovely view of it, Sello.
-Times that by about a hundred and then you've got my position!
-Other entertainments, shall we list them?
-How about animals?
-What about fireworks? I've thought about...
-It was in that film once, there was a film with swans.
-Remember it? Was it, like, Father Of The Bride?
-I'm pretty sure...
due to animal cruelty rules, we can't have swans, or dancing bears or monkeys that serve beer and nuts!
-They're gonna have to be ruled out.
How about some belly dancers?
-Get that down!
-That would be quite Turkish.
-Get some belly dancers in there!
-I think my dad'd get really excited though...
-I'd get excited!
Get some belly dancers in, come on.
That's some good ideas. That's a real productive afternoon.
A productive afternoon turns into a productive night
as the boys check out the local talent.
-Here she comes, here she comes, here she comes!
-Here she comes!
-You're loving this, huh?!
Gary quickly volunteers to see if the belly dancer makes the grade
-for his best friend's wedding.
-There's a possibility of
-belly dancer. Maybe something a little bit more upmarket.
She was OK, she was OK, I'll give her her dues, but, erm...
I think we could do better.
Back in St Albans, Naomi is on a mission.
I'm going to try on dresses, which I'm very excited about today.
She's off to meet chief bridesmaid Hannah, who she hopes
can help her pick out her dream dress.
But she's only allowed to try, not buy.
-I don't think I'd like buttons on the side.
-You'd look like a curtain.
-I don't know if I like that crystally bit either.
-I think this skirt's too full.
-Don't really like A-line. You see, that's got too much lace on it for me.
Let's see the back of it.
It is an absolutely beautiful dress though.
But I much prefer the ivory colour.
This just makes me look really pale.
I think I'm quite fussy when it comes to what I want
cos I've got one image in my head of what dress I want,
so it's very hard to find something which matches up to that.
So if I can't even find the perfect dress here, I don't know how Vu's gonna manage!
In Birmingham, Vu's also looking for dresses,
but it's his neck on the line if he gets it wrong.
-That's the Monte Carlo.
Erm...which is ideal cos it's fitted and it's ruched to about here.
-That's laced, duck.
-Don't like that one.
-Don't like it.
-That's ruched all over.
-Don't like the colour.
-The train is long on this one.
I quite like the red detailing on it.
It is quite pretty with the red detailing.
-It's a no-no.
-It's a no-no.
In St Albans, there's a breakthrough.
I can walk in these shoes!
-Oh, wow. It's lovely.
-It's a bit big, but, erm...
-It's a gorgeous dress.
-Yeah, this is lovely. I love this dress.
I like the back of it as well, actually.
It's really pretty.
-Looks like I've got a hunchback in this, but...
-..you get the idea!
-Yeah. How do you feel in it?
Honestly, if I turned up for my wedding day and I had this, I would be so, so happy.
Absolutely loved it. It was beautiful. It was my dream dress.
A hundred miles away, by complete coincidence, Vu's picked out exactly the same dress.
But does he know Naomi well enough to realise this is the one?
If you see that's it...
Doesn't excite me.
That... Isn't it? I mean, it's gotta have the wow.
Do you know what I mean? It's got to have the wow.
In a matter of seconds, Vu's crushed Naomi's dream.
It's not even I can't find what I think would be right for her, I can't find anything I like.
No luck at the dress shop, but his brother's come up with a brainwave.
I've got a backup plan, cos Sellostine, the love machine, AKA Sello, has interfered
and got a real good idea to go and see if we can get a dress made.
We can turn up and she can tell me, "Yes, I can do that for you. I can do it in 16 days, no problem,
"but it's gonna be £2,000," in which case...
I am in...as deep a doo-doo as doo-doo can be
cos I've got no dress and then a ridiculous price.
So, if she can pull something, I'm gonna hammer her.
I'm gonna... I'm gonna find her and I'm gonna negotiate with her.
I'm gonna make her work day and night
and I'm gonna give her no money for it. And this is gonna go swimmingly.
Vu's looked at dozens of wedding dresses and not picked one of them,
but he has picked up a lot of lingo.
Straight across the top, erm...
not a sweetheart.
Maybe A-line if it hangs quite...
-tight to the body.
-Quite a sort of slim A-line rather than a...
-I don't want a big pouffy A-line.
-And just a puddle train.
-And a puddle... He knows all the terms, doesn't he?
Well, we need to do a sketch then.
-That sort of shape?
Meanwhile, Naomi's busy getting into shape for her big day.
She's a regular at the gym. In fact, it's here that she met Vu.
I would say I'm, well, maybe I am a little bit vain actually.
I can't deny it. I do take pride in how I look.
I do tend to look in the mirror probably quite a few times a day.
I am a big, big, big perfectionist. Big. And, er...
if any little, tiny detail's not right, that will be disastrous!
-Red and ivory is gonna be the theme colour through the wedding.
Would it be possible to make a corset-style top...
-..lace-up at the back...
-..with red boning?
I just thought, do you know what would be nice?
-Having the lace-up red...
-..and having that coming down.
-There you go.
-So that's sort of...
-Yeah, I quite like that.
Vu's sold. But can he afford his own design?
-Not too many zeros, don't worry!
-For us to make that for you
from scratch, including everything, fabric, 850.
Is there any way of...?
-Are you on a bit of a budget, are you?
-I'm on a... I'm on a budget.
-OK. Can you kind of give me an idea of...?
-750 would've been great.
750's a bit more like it, is it?
OK. 795 and you've got a deal.
-I'll take 795.
-I'll take 795.
The only dress I can imagine wearing is my dream dress, the one that I've already found, which I love.
If I was wearing that dress, that would...
that would absolutely make my day so...
there's no room for error, I'm afraid!
That was brilliant.
Sello is an absolute legend.
Um...that went so much better than I thought it was going to.
Er...I was a bit... I was a bit nervous at the price.
I'm real, real happy with the price.
For me to be able to make exactly what I want,
and it's the same price as the things that I've been seeing on the hangers... That's unreal.
I've got no worries. I feel real, real confident about my choice of dress.
Um...so I chose it. I helped design that beauty.
It's gonna be...
another dent in his wallet. Vu suspects he's blown his 12 grand budget,
so he calls on his dad to help him crunch numbers.
Gerry and Vu's mum, Layla, are Turkish Muslim and came to the UK when Vu was two.
Traditionally, we want Vu to marry
the Turkish girl.
But when first we met Naomi,
we like her very much,
and I see the difference on Vu.
She is making him happy. So I thought,
what's got to do with us?
They are going to live together.
If they are happy, good luck to them.
-I did put on my hat, man.
So that's 14 and a half thousand.
So, say round figure, 15,000.
Yeah, I've got two and a half thousand pounds saved up anyway,
so I could probably get some...I'll just put money away from my wages.
It's...Mum and me...
we can help you little bit... but not much.
-About thousand pound-ish.
That would be very nice.
If I have... thousands, I pay you all.
-But...still I feel bad.
-What is thousand pounds?
-Thousand pounds is plenty. Thousand pounds is plenty.
That's all I need to be able to make it.
Get off me... Get off!
Right. Thank you for your money. Thank you for your help.
At two and a half grand over budget, Vu's gonna have to make some cuts.
Instead of a wedding cake, he's decided to bake his own cupcakes.
No more fun, only cakes.
They may be easy-peasy but they still need a trial run.
-Is the oven pre-heated?
180 degrees, 180 degrees.
Lucky there's three guys.
125 grams of everything. It's easy, mate,
I do love baking cakes on a Sunday morning on a hangover. LAUGHTER
Mate, that's a lot of sugar.
-That's what's in cakes.
-Stop complaining, just do it.
Vu, stop trying to change the recipe.
I'm quite looking forward to decorating the cakes.
-That a bit too much for it?
-I don't know.
-Put some effort in it, man.
The moisture comes from the butter and the vanilla essence.
I'm so strong.
Easy does it.
I'll check it after a little while just to check on progress.
If that doesn't work I'm going to go to a supermarket and buy a big smiley face cake.
Stand back, stand back, this could be...
-hell. HE LAUGHS
-Mmm, creme brulees.
-The alarm's gone, they're ready.
Seriously, six-year-old kids can do this.
Six-year-old kids make this with their parents,
and we're three adults and we can't get a bloody fairy cake right.
Most brides live in fear of their mothers-in-law, but not Naomi.
She and Vu's mum, Layla, often do lunch.
How have you been?
Stressing about, you know, the wedding.
You don't have to, you don't have to.
I think he'll do OK with the dress. At least I hope he will.
It would be nice if you wear the same, you know, my wedding dress.
I was your size when I got married.
It was lovely, your dress, though, very nice.
I'm not forcing you to, you know, wear my wedding dress.
-I don't get a choice, Layla, I do what I'm told.
They said all brides, they look lovely.
Trust me, he's going to choose the best wedding dress for you.
It will be perfect.
You are going to look after my boy. OK?
-Yeah! Be a good girl.
They are still my babies and I love them dearly.
He'll be so happy. Oh, I can't wait to see the day, you know. Wow.
If only Layla knew what her babies were up to.
It was going so well.
The second batch has risen, but the boys won't win any prizes for their decorating skills.
How come Naomi's got green boobs?
Think of it logically.
We've got to do 85 cakes.
-They have to be...
-Why don't we...
But these will only last two days.
We can't make them on the Friday because we've got the stag do.
-When are you going to get time on Thursday?
-When, when, when can I have time to bake 85 cakes?
I might just go M&S and buy a cake.
-Shall I make you some dinner?
-Yeah, you can do.
The next day it's Vu's turn to have lunch with him mum and there's something weighing on his mind.
I've got someone to draw up a design for the dress. This is what I want your advice on.
-Because it's a bit unusual.
Let me see, let me see. Hmmm.
It's really tight and it's going to be like a corset bodice.
-But it's all one piece, it's one dress.
-Lace up at the back.
That can be ivory or it can be red.
-No red at all?
-No, no, no.
-No, it has to be plain.
-Why does it have to be plain?
-Because it's wedding, wedding is the white or ivory.
Yeah, and without red it will look beautiful.
-Do you really think the red is that wrong?
-I'm sure she will prefer the same colours.
With only a week to go, Vu still hasn't sent out any invitations.
-They're real nice.
-Yeah, really happy with those.
I've got to... I've got to get them cut.
He's had olde-worlde invites made
to match his medieval venue. He's called in the troops to help him with some more handicraft.
Today they're making stamps out of carrots.
Are you going to drive him to A&E or shall I do it?
Looks like we're cooking up heroin. SNIGGERING
Slowly, slowly, slowly.
Hmm, carrot bit stuck in it.
That one's come out a gem, Sellostine.
-Ah... That's come out all right, just a little bit of extra carrot.
-The carrot worked as well.
I think I'm going to buy this carrot a beer.
While Vu's hanging out with a couple of vegetables...
..Naomi's swinging through the trees with her family, on a high-energy hen do.
Quite scary, actually, and I have hurt myself already.
-Good fun and I think everyone's having a good time.
It probably will get a bit messy later, I have to say.
Especially if we're going to a cocktail bar.
That would get messy because I do like my cocktails.
But wedding plans don't go away just because it's night time.
I would rather be eating my own faeces than doing what I'm doing right now,
because this has now got beyond a joke.
I think after about two weeks of knowing her,
I thought...she was probably the one.
She's, er... she's a very captivating character.
My friends have asked me this, actually,
and people at work have said it as well...
..and it's, "Are you sure you can handle being with the same person still
"for the rest of your life?"
..right now, 100%. Absolutely 100%.
It is, it's the ultimate commitment, isn't it?
It is kind of declaring to everybody that this is us,
we want to be together, we want to be as one.
Vu's waited until the day before the wedding to have his stag do.
He's got ten boys, macho toys and drinks all round.
Nowhere near, my son.
While he's living it up,
he's sending his bride and her sister to an industrial estate in Kidderminster.
Naomi will finally get to see the dress that Vu has designed for her.
God, I'm really nervous.
-I hope I like it.
-I hope you like it as well!
-Vu said, "I hope she likes it, I hope she likes it."
I'm sure he's picked well.
He's got good taste.
Don't think it's that! Maybe it's a white PVC wedding dress.
God, don't say that.
How on earth did he find this place?
-I'm the lady that has been making your dress for the last five days.
-Vu has been to see me and he's designed something for you.
-Really? He's designed it?
-He's designed it.
-And I've made it.
-Oh, my goodness.
-Would you like to have a look?
-I'd love to.
-I'm really nervous now!
Gather yourself. OK?
-Oh, my God.
Oh, that is lovely.
-Yeah, that is nice.
-What do you think?
I'll have to see it on. I can't tell what it looks like but no, it looks, it does look nice. It looks nice.
-Come on, then.
-We'll see you in a bit, OK?
-You get it? Hooray!
Off you go.
-NAOMI GIGGLES NERVOUSLY
What do you think?
What do YOU think?
I don't know. It's not what I was expecting.
-Do you want to see the train?
Turn it round. There you go.
Let go of it a minute, I just want to see...
Are you disappointed?
Not exactly but, um...
I don't know.
I'm...yeah, I'm just not sure.
-You're just not used to it.
She hates the dress that Vu's chosen for her.
Um, she doesn't like it at all.
She doesn't like... she doesn't want a two-piece dress,
she doesn't like the seams going down the front, she wanted more diamantes on it.
She doesn't like the material of the skirt...
What dress do you want, what...?
Well, none of them...none of them are gonna be absolutely perfect.
Well, you need it to be your perfect dress, really.
But I won't be able to get that.
What one are you talking about?
-Well, you know the one I tried on before.
-Your dream one?
So I won't be able to get that. I know that.
She's still got her heart set on the dream dress that she liked in that other shop,
so that's the one she wants, really.
-Yes, well done.
-Get in there, my son!
The wedding's tomorrow morning and I don't have a dress.
How ridiculous is that?
So what are you thinking?
You're going to end up wearing the one Vu chose?
I don't wanna wear that. I don't like it.
-Do you want me to ring Vu?
-Yeah, I think we should ring Vu, try and find a dress I like.
And we've got, like, an hour, two hours max, to do it.
I don't know, just...
I just really want the dress that I want, the one that I tried on.
Unaware that his fiancee's having the biggest crisis of her life,
Vu's off on the next leg of his stag do.
-You all right?
-Yeah, a bit stressed, to be honest.
Um, the dress...
-What about it?
-Naomi doesn't like it.
-She doesn't like it?
we're trying to think of alternatives. We've been looking at other dresses in the shop,
-and none of them are right, there's nothing right in there.
leave it with me, I'll sort it.
-I'll speak to you in a bit. Bye.
-All right. I'll call you back. Bye.
With only two hours to spare before the shops close,
Vu finally tracks down the number of the boutique in Solihull.
It's 30 miles away from the girls but it's their best hope.
-The dress is by Benjamin Roberts. It's a fishtail...
Hello, I'm ringing to find out you've got the Benjamin Roberts fishtail dress in a size eight.
Oh, you have got it?
-Um, what time are you open until today?
-In a size eight?
Amazingly, their luck is in. Hannah phones Vu with the good news.
I'm going to Solihull to pick the dress up.
OK, brilliant, thank you.
I will try.
I might be hungover tomorrow.
Look after her. I'll speak to you later, Hannah.
No dress disaster is going to ruin Vu's stag night.
In a few hours he and Naomi are getting married
and there's nothing left to do but get plastered.
I feel good.
HE SLURS I'm looking forward to t-tomorrow.
I can't say properly, but I'm looking forward to it.
I should be OK.
The wedding's not until five o'clock.
I'm pretty sure I should be OK.
Right now, I feel terrible.
It's finally the wedding day.
Vu's worked his butt off and burnt a huge hole in his pocket,
all for what he hopes will be the best day of Naomi's life.
MUSIC: "One Fine Day" by Natalie Merchant
# ..You'll look at me
# And you will know our love was Meant to be... #
The front looks great.
# One fine day
# You're gonna want me For your girl... #
Naomi's got her dream dress and is getting ready at her hotel.
85 guests are on their way.
But Vu is nowhere to be seen.
I hope you're not filming.
This morning when I first woke up I felt real bad...real bad.
To the point where I don't think I could actually move.
I don't know any grooms that have their stag do the night before. It's a bad idea,
a recipe for disaster, but I'm hoping he's been fairly sensible and hasn't gone completely crazy.
Have you been sick this morning?
Oh, yeah. Yeah. 100%. All had to come out.
He might be chained to a lamp post somewhere with no clothes on, for all I know,
so if he gets there on time, it will be a bonus, really.
Gary and Sello are worth their weight in gold.
Sello ironed all the shirts for all the ushers
this morning, got everything ready, got the suits ready,
got the cake ready,
and they just shot off and they gave me a list of everything I needed to do.
I'm ready to get married.
It is an amazing day.
I am so happy. The one thing I've got no control over...
..at the moment, is looking good.
The sun may be shining,
but will Naomi feel sunny when she sees what Vu's got in store for her?
This is definitely something to look forward to at the end of the day. Something to look forward to.
-You look so nice!
-I love your dress.
Ah ha ha, go on, the boys!
This is brilliant.
Vu's red and white theme has come together.
There are gingerbread men on every table and there's not a fairy cake in sight.
Yeah, realistically, you need to be ready by half three.
After four weeks of haggling
and a final bill of over 15 grand,
will Naomi be happy with the results?
If she doesn't like this wedding, it's off, she's done.
You can do series two with the divorce.
There's too much effort gone into this for her not to like it.
I think she'll be wowed by it.
I'd be absolutely shocked if Naomi wasn't impressed by this, and that's the whole point of it.
They're nice dresses, I like the colour.
They look really good on you.
Nice fit and all that.
I think he has done really well.
Couldn't have picked better myself.
No, he's got good taste. I think he has picked really well.
I feel hot already.
I can see people.
OK, let's go. My shoes...
-Have you got the bouquet?
Oh, have you got OUR bouquets?
No fairy-tale wedding would be complete
without a horse and carriage. Vu might have blown his budget, but he hasn't let his princess down.
Oh, wow. Wow, that is stunning.
Oh, it's amazing.
Good start so far! I wasn't expecting a horse and carriage at all. It's amazing.
Oh, wow, are we getting married in a castle?
That looks stunning.
In its 900-year history, Rockingham Castle has never played host to a wedding organised by a groom.
I call upon these persons.
-I call upon these persons.
-To witness that I.
-To witness that I.
-Do take thee.
-Do take thee.
-Naomi Elizabeth Vane.
Naomi Elizabeth Vane.
To be my lawful wedded wife.
To be my lawful wedded wife.
I promise to give you my love and friendship.
I promise to give you my love and friendship.
To support and comfort you.
-To support and comfort you.
-For better and for worse.
-For better and for worse.
You have both made the declarations prescribed by law and made a solemn and binding contract
with each other and I'm really delighted to say, you are now husband and wife together.
Would you like to kiss your wife, young man?
It's been a while, actually.
-This was hard work.
-Oh, it's absolutely beautiful.
-You couldn't have picked a better venue, it's absolutely amazing.
-Oh, thank you so much.
I really need a glass of champagne now.
-Pimm's and lemonade.
-Oh, yeah that would be good! I haven't had any all day.
I'm now your wife. Oh, my God.
It did feel an honour to be actually handing...
Naomi to somebody as wonderful as Vu.
I've been there in the good times and the bad times.
It's been a roller coaster. I can't believe how much he's done in a month.
He was getting a bit emotional. He looked like he was gonna cry, actually.
Um...but I couldn't really tell whether it was tears or whether it was sweat.
For four weeks, I've been the happiest man ever, I've been the grumpiest man ever.
Um...roller coaster is the only term to describe how it's been.
I'm the luckiest mum in the world.
I'm the luckiest mother-in-law in the world.
I can't believe it's... everything gone perfect today.
Everything was...what a father asks.
And he make me really proud.
And Vu has one final surprise up his sleeve for Naomi. A little Turkish delight.
It was a spot-on fairy-tale wedding. I feel like a princess.
I'm really shocked and in awe of what he's done today.
It was so special what he's done for me, and I just can't thank him enough.
Boys versus girls, it is a no problem situation,
because at the end of the day, the boys have taken control of this
and we have organised an absolutely brilliant wedding.
Go on, the boys!
