Cassy and Jason are in love. They've been engaged for two years
but Cassy has spent her life planning her wedding.
This is my dream, my biggest dream ever.
But big dreams cost big money, and they don't have any.
I just can't afford that.
So we're giving them £12,000 towards their big day.
But there's a catch, every single decision between now and the wedding will be made by Jason alone.
I don't know how much a dress is going to be.
-Giving Jason the chance to prove himself to the woman he loves.
-I've done it! Woo hoo!
He and Cassy have agreed, in the presence of a lawyer, that they'll
have no contact for the next month, and the bride will know nothing until the big day.
I haven't got a clue.
Four weeks apart will push their relationship to the limit.
No-one's important in this wedding, apart from me and Jason!
So, will Jason be able to get every detail right?
-Oh, my God!
-Pick the perfect dress?
If she walks up the aisle like this, I'll have to run!
-And keep his cool throughout?
-I'm stressed out, mate!
Can this man give his bride a day she will never forget?
I want it to be the perfect day, so fingers crossed.
Cassy and Jason were childhood sweethearts.
Their first encounter was at infant school.
When was it?
-1989, aged four!
We went to the same infant school, and we were in the same class,
and I always used to fancy her in infant school.
He did all the running after me, and I was like, "I don't want to go out with you," and he was gutted.
They went through nursery, they went through the infants together,
as friends first and then a little relationship started.
It's an ongoing thing, on and off, on and off over the years,
but you always could tell
they had that little bit of magic.
Finally, after ten years of mucking about, Jason made the first move.
I think it was our friend's 16th birthday.
-And I said, "Do you want to go out with me?"
-I was like, "This is serious!"
-And that was that.
-We've been together since.
Three years ago, Cassy gave birth to Amber, and the couple
bought a house in Newport, not far from their families.
Amber means the world to both of us.
I just can't imagine life without her.
-Shall we have a look at what's in the box?
With her family complete, there was just one ambition left for Cassy to fulfil.
Saturday 13th August, 8 o'clock, Jason proposed to Cassy.
-What about me?
-You wasn't there.
She started crying, I was crying, and I said, "Will you marry me?"
-And she said yes!
-Jason may have proposed, but there's no mistaking who runs this household.
-I'm in control of this relationship.
-You tend to make the decisions and I just agree with it.
-Yeah, cos it's just easier.
-It's easier for me!
Jason, an apprentice builder, supports his family on less than
£10,000 a year, and there's no bank of mum and dad to fall back on.
As a father, I do feel guilty in a way, I can't do what she wants or give her what she wants.
So with just four weeks and £12,000, can Jason pull it off?
Jason's never organised anything such as a wedding
or anything like that, as big as that ever.
It's going to kill Cassy, not knowing anything.
I think it's going to be a bit of a nightmare!
Today, Cassy's leaving home and moving round the corner to her mother's, taking Amber with her.
Do you want to take your favourite blanket?
-There's your blanket.
Ten years together and still only 23, this will be the longest time they've ever spent apart.
It's mashed potato!
Last meal then!
Next time we'll be sat down eating together, we'll be...
On the top table!
Or will we?
-All in the car now because we're driving down to Nanny Gina's!
Because he's sleeping up here and we're sleeping over Nanny's.
Have fun, don't get too stressed!
Any time you think,
getting sad, then just think
what's going to be coming at the end of it.
The next time they see each will be at the altar.
-Fortunately Jason has his best man Alex to help him for the next four weeks.
If only they knew where to start.
-Rings. Onion rings?
My involvement as best man, I think Cassy's absolutely dreading it!
Alex Stewart supporting somebody... it makes me laugh!
-Like a stone or a rock or something!
If there's a serious situation, he makes a joke, that's the type of person he is.
Aw, better watch out.
Just kicked that over.
I think flowers is going to be more expensive than we think.
Dunno, I'm not really a flowery man, to be honest!
At times, it's going to be, "This is serious now, you're going to have to help."
-I'm impressed with your spelling, Jase.
This is a very big challenge for Jason to step up to,
because this is my dream, my biggest dream ever.
But Cassy's putting her big dreams on the line by handing control over to Jason.
Although it's out of her hands, she knows exactly where she wants her wedding to be.
At three years old,
Cassy was a bridesmaid at her local church, St John's.
Cos I was the youngest bridesmaid for my auntie's wedding,
I can remember having pictures taken on the step.
So I think that was the start - watching those videos.
I always make a joke to my mum, saying "One day, I will get married here. I promise!"
And it's something that I've always wanted.
If I got married here, there wouldn't be any words to describe it, it would just make that feeling
But she's not in charge of her big day, Jason is,
and after ten years of training, he knows exactly what his bride wants.
He calls the vicar of St John's.
Basically, I'm just looking at what the possibility is of
myself and my partner getting married at St John's church?
So if one of you does not live in the parish of the church,
then you're unable to get married there?
OK, thanks, bye.
Things aren't off to a good start.
It's a bit gutting for me and it's going to be a bit gutting for her,
but it's out of my hands, there's nothing I can do, it's literally illegal.
But there's no time to dwell, so he and best man Alex
go back to the drawing board, calling every venue they can think of.
They've just cut me off.
They've cut me off again.
Jason's on a mission, although this mission seems impossible.
Answerphone. The person you have called is unavailable.
Hello, I wonder if you can help me. I'm a groom organising a wedding for my bride-to-be,
and I was wondering if I can come down and have a look round your venue?
Well, today if possible. It's going to be the end of this month.
Right, OK, that's lovely. Thank you, bye.
He finally gets some appointments. First stop, a local pub.
-Jason, nice to meet you.
-I'm pleased to meet you.
-How are you doing?
-This is my best man, Alex.
Oh, best man Alex! The way you came in I thought you were civil partners!
So this is the marquee, this can sit 150 in here.
The hotel is yours for the day, you've got the whole building, the conservatory,
the restaurant, the bars, all the garden.
But the Elm Tree is a pricey pub.
For any wedding here, drinks, food and everything, you're going to be in the region of about £7,500.
Next stop, a country house hotel, the Glen Yr Avon.
It's a lot bigger, to be fair.
It looks more impressive when you come in.
-Hi, hello there.
-I'm Jason, nice to meet you.
-Hi, I'm Alex Brown.
-This is Alex.
-Oh, you're Alex as well!
It'll be easy to remember the names!
The most we've ever put into this room is just under 200.
We were thinking more 100.
'It looks promising.'
As you can see, we have some beautiful ladies in here just having lunch,
-but we are sorry to disturb you. There we are.
We've had our lunch now, we're just waiting for some nice young men to come in and take us out!
And here we are!
-Come on through, gentlemen.
-'And has room to accommodate.'
Oh, nice, Al.
Telephone by the toilet which is always useful.
That's essential, isn't it?
Well, we like to be available at all times in any event.
But there's a problem with the availability.
-That gives me three weeks.
-I think he liked you.
-Looking you up and down.
-No, he was looking you straight in the eyes!
Across Newport, Cassy's settling in with her mum.
It's the first time she's lived at home since her parents divorced five years ago.
They're soon trying to second-guess Jason.
I'm hoping that they would be
visiting venues, getting a date, and organising invitations.
That would be my top three things, and I think I'd be very disappointed if it was in a pub.
I know that I love the pub, and I love everybody in it, but no, not a wedding.
Luckily for Cassy, Jason's got something more spectacular in mind, the Celtic Manor.
It's a five-star hotel complex spread over 1,400 acres, complete with championship golf courses.
And a place with great significance to Jason and Cassy.
This is where me and Cassy got engaged, so it would mean something if we had it here.
I want to try and get it as perfect as I can, and I want it to be the perfect day,
so fingers crossed.
Michelle, the wedding co-ordinator, gives Jason a tour.
OK, this is the golf club house.
Then we are into the marquee.
Top table along here, are you thinking of a traditional top table?
-And last, but not least, the presidential suite, where Hollywood royalty has stayed.
Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas have stayed in here.
-In this presidential suite?
Cassy can be my Catherine Zeta! I'll have to be Michael Douglas!
And here's your entrance to your presidential suite, sir!
Oh, my God, it's like a house!
It's unbelievable, it'd be awesome staying in here, absolutely awesome.
-Shall we have a look around?
-Oh, yes, please.
Yes? This is a bedroom.
-There's more than one bedroom?
Double shower, big massive bath, awesome.
This is the first place where I've just been like, wow!
And that's what I want from Cassy. I want it to be, "I can't believe this."
But all this wow factor comes at a price.
Time to talk figures with best man Alex.
-Times about 200.
-315 plus 161.
-Two, four, seven, six.
£36.95 or the £43.40.
On top of the 110 guests he's inviting to the sit-down dinner,
Jason wants another 120 for the evening buffet.
Bottom line it'll cost him £8,000, that's two-thirds of his entire budget.
I could spend £100 on a dress, I could spend £1,000 on a dress, I don't know.
You can get a dress for £20 in Debenhams if you go and look.
But I'm sure she'd love you if you got that.
There could be ways round it.
-Jason may have a wedding to organise, but he also has a boss to impress.
Morning, Jase, all right?
-How're you doing?
Not bad, not bad, bit stressed like.
He's got some stuff to get off his chest.
-I've had like two hours sleep.
Just thinking about everything.
Adding everything up?
I can't really add stuff up because I don't know how much it'll cost,
I don't know how much a dress is or suits are to rent
I don't know how much flowers are, do I, so I can't add nothing up.
Cassy hasn't a clue either, but she has ways of finding out.
She meets up with self-styled psychic Jan and her Auntie Lena.
Jan has a history of accurate predictions and does her best to alleviate Cassy's wedding worries.
Any vibes? Am I in a church?
I don't know, I picked up...
I told you I gave you the date, it was going to be my birthday, the 29th, I'm still sure of that.
I don't know where it's going to be.
Hopefully at the Celtic Manor, if Jason and Alex can cut the right deal.
Your budget's a big part of it,
and it's probably what's giving you such a headache!
With 110 guests for the day, 230 in total for the night, Jason has to feed them all.
Michelle comes up with a price, but it's over £10,000.
Did you do any sums last night?
-Yeah, I did a bit.
-Where you anywhere near that?
Nowhere near that. I was looking around paying no more than eight grand, basically.
We're going to go home and have a chat about this.
I thought, "Right, so that leaves me with £1,700 to get everything else!"
Michelle returns with a compromise.
It's your evening buffet with those kind of numbers, there are other ways.
If we do plattered sandwiches, that takes you just over to £5,000.
Incredibly, she's managed to slash the budget by half!
I'll go for that.
I'm happy with that.
I can go to the registrar and say it's in the Celtic Manor at 3pm?
-On Wednesday 29th?
If he feeds sandwiches to his evening guests,
he might just be able to get a half-decent dress for Cassy.
-Time to celebrate!
Another day, another hurdle.
Jason's off dress shopping with dad Tony.
-I haven't got a clue.
-Nor have I.
Just going to go in, and hopefully they'll be able to help us as much as they can.
Quite a simplistic dress. I'm showing this because it's got
the crossover part at the front there,
you've got lace with the appliques over.
The embroidery can come in different colours.
-He's totally out of his depth.
-You've got beading down the bottom.
Just another different sort of style.
And he thought venue hunting was tricky.
It's just completely different. So that's got the pull-across again.
So this is a bit more traditional, really.
If you don't want to go for any colour on it at all,
it comes in all-ivory.
A lovely scalloped edge.
I'll show you the other one again.
Jason's not the only one looking at dresses.
Cassy's out window shopping with bridesmaid Kelly and mum Gina.
I might try not all of them, but one of each style maybe.
Could be a while!
The lads are still looking.
Nice bit of sparkle and most ladies like a bit of sparkle.
Do you like sparkle or embroidery?
-Not too much sparkle.
French lace on the top.
I'm not into lace.
-Can I ask, is it a church wedding?
-It's a civil ceremony at a hotel.
-Are you getting married in a church?
-I don't know yet. I don't know anything!
But I AM getting married!
# Here comes the bride... #
Knowing Cassy, she probably wants something that's going
to complement her figure, kind of thing,
so nothing that's going to make her,
nothing that's sort of out there, going to make her look big.
-That's a wedding dress to me.
-That's definitely the one.
What's it feel like, Cass? Nice?
It feels very nice.
I do feel like a princess in this one.
Would it help you if one of our assistants was to pop a couple of the dresses on?
-Would that give you an idea of how it would look on?
That's nice, isn't it?
-Looks loads different on.
I've made my decision, that's going to be the one.
Oh, fantastic. I'm absolutely chuffed.
So she walks up the aisle like this,
and I'm going to know I've got it wrong and I'll just have to run!
That was horrible, I feel sick now.
I've done it, woo-hoo!
well, half of it. Might go for a pint now!
Back at home, Jason wants to add a personal touch to his wedding plans.
He's taking inspiration from Cassy's Greek-Cypriot background.
GREEK MUSIC PLAYS
She may think, "Oh, he might get a band or he might get a disco,"
but I don't think she'd think I'd get a Greek band.
Write down the number...
But that's not the only thing he's been arranging.
It's mine and Cassy's...anniversary of when we got engaged,
and so it's a little bit difficult not being able to even text her
and say "happy anniversary" or whatever.
I'm trying to just keep busy and not think about it.
He may be busy, but Cassy's not forgotten.
"For my wife.
"To my beautiful wife to be, happy anniversary of our engagement.
"All I want to do is spend my whole life loving you. Missing you loads. I love you. Jason."
It's put me at ease, to know he is thinking of me.
But right now, he's not. He's trying to book a band.
This is my office this morning,
I've taken a perch here and I'm not going to leave here all morning
till I've sorted this band.
I hope he's not too full-on Cypriot, I won't understand him.
What's your availability like for Wednesday 29th August?
Would that be £300 altogether? ..For each person?
I think that's pathetic, £1,200 for an hour and a half.
I'd play the bouzouki on my own.
Hello. ..How many of you are there?
..Four of you, so that's £800.
..All right. I spoke to the lead singer of the band,
and he can sort me out for £200 each, which is still £800.
It's him again.
Hello? ..Right, OK.
So £600. Bye.
It's coming down, anyway. He said, "If you want us to just play traditional Greek music,
"then we don't really have to have the clarinet player."
So he said then, "Three of us could just come down and that'd be £600."
So if he just comes on his own, I can have him for £200!
-He's not booked the band yet, but he can't hang about, and goes off to look at wedding cars.
-Gary, is it?
-I'm Gary, yes.
-Hi, Jason, how's it going?
-Not too bad.
-How many cars are we looking for?
A classic 1961 Silver Cloud has Cassy's name all over it.
-There's going to be bridesmaids and stuff. I was thinking about a limousine.
Gary's got the perfect solution, a Hummer-style stretch limo.
-There's only 24 of these limos in the whole of the UK so this is a real special car.
I don't want to do it, and then leave myself short.
I'm going to go back and book that other limo, I don't care. It's a big day, go for it.
Someone's getting relaxed with their cash, spending a total of £320.
-There you are.
-See you on the day.
-Thanks, mate. Ta.
While Jason grapples with the challenges of the wedding,
Cassy's also struggling to adjust to living back with her mum.
When she used to live at home, she was like my little girl,
and this time she's a grown woman with her own mind,
and it's not all been rosy and brilliant, we've had our moments.
When I left my mum's house, I was a child. Now I'm an adult,
I do things in my own way, and I think...
It's not necessarily stepping on her toes,
it's just I can't be completely myself here because I'm a guest.
Cassy can only hope it'll all be worth it in the end.
For Jason, though, it all seems to be a piece of cake.
Any ideas at all?
Erm, as far as I'm aware, wedding cakes go in sort of tiers...
-Yes, OK, that's the limit of your knowledge?
-Apart from that, I haven't got a clue!
Do you want sort of traditional, or do you want modern?
-What's the difference?
-Do you want to have chocolate? Lemon? Or carrot cake?
Do you know what flowers you are getting?
-Chocolate icing, fudge icing, or vanilla icing?
Oh, my Lord!
A standard ten, eight and six will give you enough for the day.
Who'd have thought a cake could be so complicated?
-This is the stand, what do you reckon?
-I'm happy with that.
-We have a plan!
-I'd probably say about 180 quid.
-See you later. Thanks.
Ten days in and the tension's been building between Cassy and her mum.
Cassy's divorced parents have new partners, and want them on the top table.
This has led to a big family row, and she's walked out.
I've said before, on the top table we're just having parents,
it's the tradition to have parents and the bridesmaids, and that's tradition, that's what you do.
Her brother and bridesmaids offer support.
Never mind who you're sat with or what you're doing,
you're seeing your daughter getting married on the best day of her life,
the most important day of her life, what does it matter where you're sat?
Jason's the one who makes the decision, and nothing was announced, that's going to be last minute.
I don't even know if he's got a bloody venue!
It annoys me that they're putting this extra stress on Jason!
There's no need! I just said, "I'm not doing this, I can't believe you're all doing this to me!
"There's no important person in this wedding apart from me and Jason and you're ruining it for us!"
It's just so selfish!
There's only one person who can calm this situation.
Kelly gives him a call. They're not supposed to see each other before the wedding, but it's an emergency.
..That seems a whole lot easier than today.
Do you know what's going on?
All this is about a poxy top table.
I said, "It's tradition that parents of the bride and groom are up on the top table." What's the problem?
It's not really your decision on that, it's what Jason decides. But I can see you're so upset,
so you're not really thinking about that.
At the end of the day, it's my decision, and if they can't accept it just for one hour,
for their daughter and future son-in-law's wedding, then there's something wrong.
There's no easy solution, but it's time to go.
It is going to spoil the day, because everyone's just going to remember it for this silly little argument
and I want it to be remembered as Jason and Cassy's perfect wedding day.
I feel like they've made it 100 times harder for me.
Later that night, Jason visits Cassy's mum.
He's made his mind up - family only on the top table.
And Gina accepts his decision.
It may have been a stressful night, but Jason still has a wedding
to organise, and the big day is only two weeks away.
Cassy's brother's arranged the invites, but there's a problem.
There's a spelling mistake. "Request the please of your company..."
-It's supposed to be "pleasure".
-In fact, there's more than one.
"Venune"! I'm going to have to ring Eddie and tell him.
-That is annoying because I wanted to get them out today.
-All right, mate? Do you know, on these invites,
there's two spelling mistakes...
Request the "please" of your company,
and then... party of... "venune to be announced."
It's supposed to be "venue".
They were just about to start printing them, so it's a good job I rang him.
Cassy and Jason may have their wedding on their minds,
but they haven't forgotten their responsibilities as parents.
Splitting the family up has started to affect their three-year-old daughter, Amber.
She's saying silly things like, "Can I go to your house?"
I'm saying, "It's not MY house, Amber, it's OUR house."
Put this on.
I hope I don't get wet!
Oh, my God! Look at this rain!
The other day she said, "You don't love Daddy." I said, "I do!
"Why did you say that?" "Cos you haven't seen him in ages."
So that was quite difficult. One of those kids' moments.
They pick up on everything.
No, it's not wet inside.
As they're not allowed to see each other, they use Cassy's aunts as a picking-up point for Amber.
Being so near, yet so far, only adds to Cassy's frustration.
I keep building myself up, "Oh, I might see him here
"or might see him there or..."
But now I don't think about it because I think it's just punishing myself,
because I'm building myself up to something that's not going to happen.
I can't even just pick my phone up and say, "How are you, babe?"
or whatever, I can't even do that.
That's the bit I find the most difficult, it's just not being able to ask her if she's all right.
Jason takes his mind off things by bargain hunting for the bridesmaids' dresses.
Trying to find something in the right size and colour and style
for two people who are different sizes and have different styles. Should be fun.
With only four grand of his budget left, he brings along style gurus Tony and Alex.
-Come on, Al, you've got good fashion sense.
-What, for dresses?
-I'm looking for bridesmaids' dresses.
-Oh, lovely, you're picking a bridesmaid's dress?
-I am indeed, yes.
-Is that any good for you?
-I need two.
-You need two?
Similar to that, but in a different colour.
No, it's too dark and too short.
-Off to a good start.
Frustrated, the guys move on.
-I can't even find something close to it.
-Come and have a look in here now.
A decisive Jason finds the right colour, but not the right price.
It's £160, so if I want two of them, that's £320.
I'm not worried, the only thing I'm thinking is, "Are the girls going to be happy with them?"
And the price as well.
Time for a well-earned break from wedding planning, it's Jason's stag night.
Should be well happy with the outfit we've got for him.
-It's not too revealing, because, to be honest, Jason hasn't really got the figure to be revealing.
As the lads go out, the girls have a night in.
He's in control, he's not stupid.
I know exactly what he's doing - he'll be on the dance floor.
He'll be on the dance floor, just dancing his arse off.
Tony, please look after him.
Come on, Jase! Strut it in style!
Don't get drunk, and look after Jason.
Jason's absolutely steaming, and he's started slapping people.
It's all right when he slaps all of us, but the bouncers are not taking kindly to it,
so they've taken him out the side entrance and kicked him straight out.
-Let's get out in the sun.
-Ten days to go and it's time to take stock of the budget.
On an apprentice builder's wage, Jason can't afford to go a penny over his 12 grand.
That's 817, just to cover it.
320. ..60 quid.
-£600. I think that's it.
-Right, d'you want to know?
I don't think I do.
10, 4, 5, 6.
10, 4, 5, 6.
So, we've got this left - £1,544 - to do all that.
Round and round the garden Like a teddy bear
One step, two step Tickle you under there!
-Living with Amber helps take Cassy's mind off missing Jason.
-Keeps me distracted.
You do, you keep me distracted so I don't start thinking.
If I play with you, I don't have to think about Daddy.
You do have to think about Daddy!
-I do think about Daddy, yes. Do you think about Daddy?
-Can we just go home now?
You just go home now? What do you want to go home for?
Because I want to see Daddy, it's a surprise.
You want to see Daddy... It wouldn't be a surprise if we've seen him!
With less than a week to go, Jason's finally got the invites back, but there's a problem.
Because of all the cock-ups,
like it says, "RSVP by 22nd August," which was yesterday.
He can't wait for the post, so delivers them by hand.
And even Granny gets one.
It's the hen night and Cassy has a surprise - she's finally got an invite to her own wedding.
Oh, my goodness!
"venue to be announced..."
How nasty is that?!
I'm going to cry!
Don't cry, you'll spoil your make-up.
As the lads stay in...
-I hope we have a good laugh.
-..the girls go out on the town.
I'm pretty sure the girls won't be half as wild as we were on the stag.
GIRLS ALL CHEER
Flash of the boobs?!
I think they're going to have a few games going on.
I think Cassy's hammered by now, I reckon.
Everybody's arse out the window.
-Not the same as us, I don't think.
Can we go home?
Five days till the wedding, and Jason's got guests, a chance
-for the Papantonious to approve the entertainment.
-Nice to meet you.
My fiancee's dad, Andreas.
-That's her brother, Evangelos Orgele.
-All right, guv?
-And that's her other brother, Christakos.
And that's my best man, Alex.
How you doing, mate? Shall we set up and...?
Yes, that's fine, just have a little taster of what we're going to be hearing on the day.
Greek tradition includes pinning money on the bride's dress, but Jason needs advice.
-So it's going to be an English song.
But sort of a Greek traditional dance, if you know what I mean, with regards to pinning the money on.
-Right, because there is a specific dance for that, Jase.
But as a theme it's a good idea, it's my daughter's dream.
You wanted the Zorba?
I want at the end, just before you finish, I want to get everybody up doing the Zorba.
Discussion over, down to business.
That was brilliant, guys.
I'm really happy with that. See you Wednesday then, mate?
-See you Wednesday. OK, thank you.
-I'll be a married man when I see you Wednesday.
With the band sorted, the next task for the day is the bridesmaids.
Jason brings Danielle and sister Kelly for a dress fitting.
Hopefully they fit them and that's done then, isn't it? Done and dusted.
Altogether, that's £322 then, please.
-Jeez, that's a lot!
-The girls are chuffed at Jason's expensive taste.
It's worth it, Jason.
Yes, of course it is.
The spending spree continues.
I could get use to this!
Looking for shoes is proving harder than dress shopping.
Well, that was rubbish.
That was a bit disappointing, though. ..Expensive.
Half-price sale, go in there.
Something's caught Kelly's eye.
If you both chip in £50, I'll get you them!
-But she won't let it go.
-I think they'd go lovely.
They do look lovely, yeah. £80...
I'm sorry, I just can't afford that.
Never mind, eh.
If I get you two those shoes, that leaves me with £50 to get Cassy's and Amber's.
Bit of a brother-and-sister domestic!
It's the day before the wedding, and Cassy will finally get to see the dress that Jason's bought for her.
Can I have a kiss? Not with that big buttery face!
All right then, see you later.
-Bye, enjoy it!
Cassy leaves to join her bridesmaids at bridal shop All About Eve.
Oh, my God, I can't breathe!
Literally, my heart just feels like I'm having a heart attack.
-How are you?
-I'm OK, thank you!
Just time for a quick root around the rails.
They just look too good to touch.
Cassy doesn't know it, but she's found the very dress that Jason has chosen for her.
Time for manager Maureen to step in.
Would you like me to get your dress?
Oh, my God, am I going to see it?
If you'd just like to wait here,
I'll bring the dress out for you and then we can get it on and try it on. All right?
Meanwhile, over at the Celtic Manor, Jason's tying up loose ends, but his mind is on Cassy's fitting.
What if she's like..."I don't like the shape of it," or whatever?
Oh, no! I can't do this!
Let me just say, he was so excited when he came in and you've got an absolute star there.
He's got a lot of imagination, a lot of style,
and he really worked hard for this for your sake, so don't get worrying, all right?
OK, are you ready?
Oh, my God! Oh, it's the one I picked!
-Oh, my God!
-I can't believe it!
-Was that just the one I pulled out?
And I love that one!
If you'd like to come with me.
-I'm so proud of him.
-I can't believe it's happening, it's happening now!
Once her tiara and veil are on, the look is complete.
Oh, my God!
Look how perfect it hangs, absolutely perfect. Fits like a glove.
Yes, it does, it's perfect.
-If you look over your shoulder
-into the mirror, you can see the back.
-I can't wait.
Just one small problem.
For the seamstress to look at your alterations, we need to know what the height of the heel is.
Jason still has the bridal shoes.
-You know what shoes you've got.
-Do you know the height of the heel?
Can you just say the height of the heel?
-I just want to know the height of the heel.
-Can you ring him and ask him to measure them?
-You know Cassy's shoes?
What height is the heel?
What size is a medium?
-Well, it's not big and it ain't small.
-You can't measure them?
-I'm not home.
-So they're not big and they're not small.
No, they're like, I don't know.
Like three inches?
No, they ain't that big.
-They're not that big.
-Nowhere near that big.
Do you know how big an inch is?
Yes, of course I know how big an inch is.
-I'm stressed out now, because I like the shoes.
That's done my head in now.
-My sister - "What height are Cassy's shoes?"
I don't know, I just bought her shoes.
They're not as high as those ones, but they're...
-That's a two and a half.
-If the dress is too long,
it's going to depend on
what her heel size is, isn't it?
Take it all in.
So that's it then?
The final product.
Cassy's got her perfect dress, but Jason doesn't know that.
I'm actually thinking there's bound to be something she doesn't like about it.
There's no time to dwell, but on his way to buy favours, he gets an unexpected call.
-Jason, hi, it's Maureen from All About Eve bridal?
-Hello, you all right?
-Just a quick call Jason, the alterations on the dress are going to be £60.
-Right, OK then.
That's great, that is(!)
-Forget the favours, we ain't having any favours at the wedding.
Alterations on the dress are £60.
-Today, stuff's just getting chucked at me...
-On the last day.
..and I could do without this on the last day, to be honest with you.
So I feel annoyed now... to be honest.
After the alterations, Jason's only got £110 left to buy Amber's dress,
two pairs of shoes, a tiara, and favours for his guests.
-Ah, it's gorgeous.
-There you are, and the back. All right?
It's perfect, definitely.
I haven't sorted the favours out or nothing yet like, so it's bit of a nightmare.
Don't know what we're going to do, to be honest.
-If you sprinkle them in there, it'll give a little iridescent sort of sparkle.
-All right? You got a speech yet?
-I've got to go and do that now.
Awesome, I'm a lot happier now, a lot happier.
Buy the sweets, chuck them in the bags with a couple of stars, that's it.
-We've got to go to Cardiff anyway and pick up shoes.
-My sister's shoes.
It's a half-hour trip to Cardiff, and Jason's almost out of time and money.
The boys take stock of their financial situation one last time.
D'you want me to get my calculator out?
No, we're down to the bare wire, so I can work it out in my head.
Could do it on only one hand!
So far, Jason's spent £11,970,
and has absolutely no spare cash, not a penny.
We're not going to do all that for £30.
-Because Amber's shoes are probably going to take up the majority of that.
Well, see how we get on with this £30 now.
See how far we can stretch it! And just go from there.
Just bought Amber's tiara, so now I've got £20 left.
Next, Amber's shoes.
That's the type of thing I want, they're £21.99, so that's two quid over my budget.
Two pounds over his £12,000 budget and Jason's out of cash.
Luckily his best man bails him out with a loan of £60.
Thank you, mate.
You've got Amber's shoes and Amber's tiara, and that's it, that's all we've come for, wasn't it?
Believing they've got everything done, the lads head back to Newport to buy the favours, but it
takes a half-hour journey to realise something crucial's been forgotten.
Oh, my God! I haven't picked up my sister's shoes!
Ah, my God, I can't believe it, that's what we went to Cardiff for.
Have to go back and get them, simple as that.
I can't believe we forgot the shoes!
I really can't believe it.
-Won't be long.
-They reach the shop 10 minutes before closing, but Jason's taking his time.
They haven't turned up, and now we might have to go to Llantrisant to go and get them.
That's almost an hour away from Newport.
Are they definitely there in Llantrisant, because I'm not driving all the way there...
Absolute 'mare, like.
Well, we'd better get a move on.
Got an absolutely banging headache now. I feel like someone's just standing on my head.
Jason, you owe me big time for this.
Got 'em, two pairs of shoes.
-That'll do us.
-Time for the final buy, sweets for the favours.
That's it, mate, last £20.
You can pour them, put the sweets in.
The biggest day of their lives is almost upon them.
While the boys work into the night, Cassy reflects.
I can't believe it's my wedding.
It just doesn't feel like my wedding.
I find myself going, "Oh, my God, I'm getting married tomorrow." I can't wait.
After a lifetime of waiting, four weeks of tension
and a final bill of £12,060, it's finally the wedding day.
# Nice day to start again
# It's a nice day for a white wedding. #
Got a wedding today?
But with his Greek-Cypriot theme
and home-made favours, will Jason give Cassy a day she'll never forget, for all the right reasons?
-Tuck it in.
I've wanted this so much,
for so many years.
I really can't believe this is going to happen to me today.
I'm just more excited than nervous.
I can't stop tapping my feet and I can't sit down. I just want to go now.
Are you all right? Oh...
# It's a nice day for a white wedding... #
Wow, you look like a beautiful princess!
I'm going to the wedding!
That's it now.
-Flowers I'm still waiting for, that's what my doubt is.
-I love you.
-I love you too.
-Don't make me cry. No! No crying.
They're lovely, the flowers.
I'm absolutely amazed by Jason's choices,
so far he hasn't done anything wrong.
I'm so...excited, I just want to go!
# I've got you under my skin... #
Has Jason delivered the church wedding she's always wanted?
Where am I going?
# I've got you deep in the heart of me... #
I thought I'd be going that way for the church
but we're going this way, so I know I have not got the church.
# ..And I've got you under my skin. #
But the venue Jason has chosen is where they got engaged.
The Celtic Manor!
Oh, my goodness!
Oh, I can't wait now!
It's starting to dawn on me, I don't know what I've got to say, or I
haven't had the rehearsal, and...
And so, 10 years on, the childhood sweethearts are finally getting hitched.
MUSIC: "Endless Love" by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross
# All my love with you
# No-one else will do
# And your eyes
# Your eyes, your eyes
-# They tell me how much you care
-They tell me how much you care
-# Oh yeah
-# You will always
-You will always
-# My endless love
-My endless love... #
-I give you this ring.
-I give you this ring.
-To show that I love you.
-To show that I love you.
-And I'm proud.
-And I'm proud.
-That you'll be my wife.
-That you'll be my wife.
I will always be there for you.
I will always be there for you.
-As your best friend.
-As your best friend.
-As well as your wife.
-As well as your wife.
Therefore it gives me very great pleasure to now pronounce you as husband and wife.
Thank you so much, I love you.
I done her proud when I picked that dress with Jason.
-Tony, you fibber!
-I'm joking, Joan!
-Don't you dare say that!
-She looked absolutely gorgeous.
I'm so proud of everything he's done, because he's been brilliant, down to every little detail.
He's got everything perfect.
The newly-weds snatch a moment alone.
Jason has another surprise for Cassy.
-What if we just stay here tonight?
No way, you're joking? Huh?
Oh, my God, you're such a...
How do you lie so good?
Every girl has her dream, she's got her dream.
Your bride and bridegroom!
# It's very clear
# Our love is here to stay
# Not for a year
# But ever and a day. #
APPLAUSE AND WHISTLING
'I still can't believe that he's pulled all this off,'
and I can actually say he's done it better than what I would have done,
-so it's just amazing.
I've got to say a big congratulations to Jason, for putting all this together,
I personally don't think I could have done it, so I've got to say,
an applause to everybody. Well done, boys!
You're going to have bear with me, this is the third or fourth time
today I've rose from a warm seat with a piece of paper in my hand.
I couldn't let the day go by without having a special mention
for my mum and dad, their love and devotion for one another has made me be exactly the same with Cassy.
I just want to say, if I can
go on in my life and be half the person that you two are, and be
half the parents that you two have been to me, then I'd be delighted.
APPLAUSE AND CHEERS
I had goosebumps, I was getting all cold shivers and everything, I don't usually get like that.
I could just see Jason glowing, but she does, she looks
amazing today, everything together, it's just brought it together as a perfect day for her.
I could never dream it could be as good as this, it's just brilliant.
The bride and groom on the dance floor, to do their traditional Greek dance,
the pinning money dance.
Everybody! Get your money ready!
Get your tenners and twenties ready and fifty pound notes, we'll accept!
This has just been thousands, million times better than I would ever imagine...
basically. I can't believe it.
# To watch the sunrise on your face
# To know that I can say I love you
# It's like flying without wings Cos you're my special thing
# I'm flying without wings. #
I think she realises how much I've done for her now, and how much I'm prepared to do for her,
so life goes on now, and lots more happiness hopefully.
