'Paul and Emily are madly in love.'
She's the best thing to happen to me.
It's a commitment getting married, showing that we do love each other.
'With a nine-month-old baby to provide for,
'and thousands in debt, they've put wedding plans on hold twice.'
We can't afford to do it.
'We're giving them £12,000 for their big day, but there's a catch.'
You're not allowed to make any arrangements.
'They have agreed that Paul will organise the wedding.'
I'm not going to be able to do it.
'They'll have no contact, and Emily won't know a single thing until the big day in three weeks' time.'
I'm getting more scared.
'Will Paul's desire to take control get out of hand?'
Whatever I say is right.
I'm advising you for your own safety she will not sleep tonight.
'Backed by his army training, can Paul succeed in the biggest mission of his life?'
I am disappointed. I've let myself down.
'Can this man give this woman a day she will never forget?'
If the dress is wrong, it's the end of the world.
This programme contains some strong language.
'Emily is moving out of the home she shares with recruitment consultant Paul and baby Ethan.
'They've been together for three years and live in Altrincham,
'south of Manchester.
'In Emily's eyes, there's no man about this house.'
I have to do everything for Paul. It's like having two kids.
'Anything Paul does usually spells disaster.'
Did Mummy tell Daddy to read the instructions? I think she did.
'Ex-para Paul's biggest downfall is splashing the cash.'
I was terrible with money.
I never thought about bills I had to pay. I bought what I wanted to buy.
'After leaving the army, he racked up a huge debt.'
Between us, the debt was probably about 30,000.
'With their finances out of control, Emily forced spendaholic Paul to hand over the purse strings.'
'Emily's controlled a lot of the money.'
Having the only bank card, I'm the only one that can withdraw money.
Can I have me money?
She gives me £1.50 a day. It's like being at school.
He's done stupid things,
like gone onto Ebay and bought a £500 campervan!
If you give him £12,000, he'll spend every penny.
'Paul needs Emily, but as she prepares to move out, she's realising how much she needs him.'
It's only three weeks. It'll be OK.
'For three weeks, this soldier will be giving orders, not taking them.'
I don't like to admit it. She does wear the pants.
I'm hoping I'm not going to get this wrong.
I'm trusting him to organise my wedding,
as his one and only chance to prove that he can organise something.
I don't think he'd know what a typical girl would want, do you?
I'll see you in three weeks.
-I love you loads.
'He's gonna need it!
'Next time Emily sees him will be at the altar.
'Let battle commence.
'Day one of Paul's mission, and he doesn't know where to begin.'
I've never been to a wedding.
The only thing I know about weddings is there's a white dress,
a walk down the aisle and a couple of words at the end of it.
'So he drafts in second-in-command,
'best man and ex-marine Warron Wealding.'
Emily is quite controlling.
If she doesn't like something, Paul will know for weeks afterwards!
-We need to get the venue out the way first.
-Sounds good. Set a date!
'Across town, Emily is settling in with her parents and sister Hannah,
'her chief bridesmaid.'
I've been brought up Catholic.
I went to church every week till I was 18.
I did go to a very strict Catholic school.
Paul won't bother about a sit-down meal or anything.
He'll just want the party bit after. If it's karaoke, I'll kill him.
You are going to have to accept there will be karaoke!
'My mum is hugely religious.'
Getting married is doing it in front of God. I'd never hear the end of it if I didn't.
It'd be nice to go to the place where Ethan was Christened.
We know the priest quite well. That would feel good - to me.
'It looks like there are two women Paul needs to impress.
'Fortunately, he's already tracked down the local vicar.'
I'm ringing to enquire if we can get a wedding at St John the Baptist.
If you could give us a call back please. Thank you.
-I thought churches were supposed to be open 24 hours.
They're not what they used to be.
'There's only one aisle Emily is prepared to walk down.'
This is where my parents go to church and we used to go to church,
where Ethan got Christened and where I would like to get married!
I am a Catholic. I believe in God but I'm not over the top.
To me, a wedding is doing it where God is around us.
If you're doing it somewhere that's not a church
you lose the meaning of it.
Is it where Mummy's getting married? Tell Daddy that's what Mummy wants.
'But with no word from the family's favourite...'
# Ooh, Lordy, my trouble so hard... #
'..Paul's forced to look at other options.'
We're on our way to a church. It is a very nice looking church.
# ..Don't nobody know my trouble with God... #
I'm looking to get married.
I'm doing a surprise wedding for my partner.
Ah, right. OK.
Thanks a lot for your time. Cheers. Bye.
Apparently, it's against the law to do it that quick.
I've never heard of any law, but then again, I'm not in the church.
I don't think it says in the Bible about it being over three weeks!
You can understand why religion's not as strong as it used to be.
'Paul's only option now is a civil ceremony. Time to gather some intelligence.'
-This is coming out your budget, you know!
-It's only 20 quid.
'With £12,000 burning a hole in his pocket, Paul can't help himself.'
20 quid on magazines!
You'd have just stopped with one!
'Paul decamps to his spiritual home, the pub, and calls for back-up.
'It arrives in the shape of joint best man Michael Brown, also known as Brownie.
'Since Emily's given Paul rare access to their account, he buys his mates a pint.'
What I want to try and do today is find a couple of venues close by.
We'll get a magazine each and see if there's any venues.
That's what I want. I like that medieval-looking castle.
I love the thought of me own castle.
A castle so he could play soldiers.
I think Emily would like it, but that's more for me.
I'm doing a surprise wedding for my partner in three weeks.
'One day apart and Paul's already forgotten it's Emily's dream day.'
It's "I want it. I'm getting it!"
He would have booked it there and then without seeing it.
That's typical Paul, isn't it?
That castle one looks good, don't it?
Do you think I can arrive on a horse with a shield and a lance? I'd be divorced before I'm married.
'While Paul fantasises about bringing in the artillery...
'..Emily dreams of something more traditional.
'She takes Hannah to a country club where she'd love to have her reception.'
She knows exactly what she wants.
If he doesn't choose that, she'll be really angry and upset.
This would be my ideal place to have the wedding reception.
-It fits with your theme, the traditional thing, nice colours and flowers.
This is the reception.
I would have chair covers on with red bows on them.
I want round tables. I want name cards for everybody.
I want crystal glasses and I want silver cutlery.
I want real napkins, not paper napkins.
I want a flower arrangement there. Not too high so people can talk.
No fish bowl things. I think they look a bit weird.
This is exactly what I want.
You'll not get a better view.
I dread to think what is going to happen.
You're only going to do this once. You want it to be really good.
If you've got that idea and you don't get that idea, I don't want you to be really disappointed.
I don't want me to be really disappointed.
'Unfortunately for Emily, Paul's idea of traditional dates back to the Dark Ages.'
It is an actual castle.
'Peckforton Castle specialises in medieval banquets.'
Gorgeous. It is really nice.
This is exactly what I wanted.
'The boys are greeted by the resident birds of prey as well as owner Tony Naylor.'
Do you think your bride would like a fairy tale castle?
It's always been more me that.
If Paul had his dream wedding...
I can't think about it because it scares me.
You could have the fire eater. You could have medieval costumes.
He knows I want traditional, classy.
Why don't you put the falconry on while you have your photography?
'Surely, Emily will want to be the only bird in her wedding snaps.'
-This is our biggest room, the one we use the most.
We have an owl called Olly, and last Saturday it delivered wedding rings
from one end of this red carpet to the best man's right hand...
This is the dining room.
It is nice, isn't it?
£4,500 will get you a wedding here at the castle for 60 people.
'But why stop there when you've got 12 grand to spend?'
I can picture it. As you come in, you've got jesters on the lawn.
You've got people... Even medieval fighting with sword displays, falconry.
I am looking at how many rooms I'd be able to book.
I'd love my mum to have a room here.
Emily's parents, Emily's sister, these two, Emily's bridesmaids.
'Without Emily there to control his spending,
'Paul splashes a grand on ten bedrooms for friends and family,
'using up nearly half of his budget.'
-The Sunday, that would be ideal.
-We already have a wedding that day.
-Does it have to be a weekend?
-It can be a week day.
'In his haste, Paul's agreed to a weekday wedding.'
I don't think she's expecting this.
It's a fairy tale wedding.
'Whose fairy tale is it?'
I don't think any groom gets a choice in any wedding whatsoever.
I'm enjoying the fact that I've got the trousers back on.
# Walk like a man Talk like a man
# Walk like a man, my son... #
'Paul's on a roll and soon gets a flavour for his colour scheme.'
If we make a proper chocolate theme, chocolate wedding cake,
chocolate fountain, brown suits, brown bridesmaids dresses.
Try to get Emily's dress, instead of white, cream.
-That's different, innit?
-We want different, unusual.
We don't want original.
'He may not know they're the same thing, but Emily won't want unusual.
'With a venue and date, Paul's next challenge is shopping for bridesmaids dresses.'
I have three sisters.
Three women, even if it's their time of the month, I'm confident I can handle them.
I'm planning on spending £100 per person.
That's going to include £70 for the dress and £30 for the shoes.
He might make us not look as good cos he wants Emily to look better.
As long as we look good, he can blow the budget!
Even if we love it, if he doesn't like it, that's it.
We'll have to gang up on him.
I'm setting some ground rules.
I'm in charge. Whatever I say is right.
Can we have a handbag, if you don't mind?
-What do you want a handbag for?
-For anything. For money.
-Put your money in your bra.
I've seen it done on films. People do it.
We're after nice plain dresses.
I'm hoping to get a chocolate coloured dress with cream sash.
I don't think we'll have this one.
Let's go to the cheap bit.
I'll have that one.
Those are 80 quid, which leaves 20 quid for the shoes.
-You don't have that as well.
It's going to fall off!
They look all right, though. You'll have to try a smaller size.
-I don't like them.
-I don't care.
-They're like a cushion.
-Try them on.
-I'm not wearing that.
If he likes that, what else does he like? Oh, God!
I don't think Emily would like this dress. It's quite girlie.
I don't think she would like the flowers.
-Do they all fit?
-These shoes are hideous.
-Them shoes go nice with it.
I hate it, Paul.
If I can't find this in the other shops, they're an option.
-It's not an option. I just won't wear it.
-Then you'll be naked.
But I really hate it.
That's so much better.
I need to get a decision today. I want the girls to look pretty. They can't look like dogs.
I'll say the light brown one.
If they don't fit, you can breathe in or out. I don't care.
'At £80 per dress, Paul's on budget, but it leaves just 20 for shoes.'
-I like them.
-'These are £50 a pair.
'And who can resist matching handbags?'
That goes with them so I might have to buy the bags.
-You don't get any flowers or presents.
We knew we'd get our way.
240. Plus the 165.
That's 305, innit?
Is that right?
That doesn't sound right to me. I thought it was well more over.
'He is well more over.
'Paul's spent £475, nearly 200 more than he'd budgeted for.'
'And he just can't resist treating the troops to lunch.
'Paul has no trouble getting rid of his pounds, but Emily's really struggling to shift hers.'
My big motivation is to be a skinny bride and not a fat bride.
Before I had Ethan, I was a size 10.
After Ethan, the biggest I've bought was a 16.
But I've lost three stone in seven months.
Most brides would get married before they had a baby!
I'll feel like I've failed if I don't lose as much weight as possible.
I hope Paul has good taste, but if it was horrific,
I don't think I'd wear it. It would ruin the day for me and for him. I'd be a miserable cow!
'Do these two fellas look like they couldn't pick a wedding dress?'
-We're looking for something off-white.
-Quite elegant. Yeah.
That one's nice. Quite simple.
A bit over-the-top but it might be nice.
It's just too much, all the gathering.
Cos I've decided to go the extra bit for the castle, I have to be very careful about the money.
'The spendaholic's decided to economise on the most important dress of his bride's life.'
-< This dress is £700.
-I don't think that's quite right.
'Emily may not be choosing her own dress, but a girl can dream.
'She's taking her sister along for moral support.'
I quite like that one.
Oh, maybe not. I'm so fussy!
I don't like the flowers.
It's got buttons! A definite no!
'And the final verdict?'
70 dresses? Yeah, I like one!
-You'll probably hate it when you've got it on.
-I bet I will!
-Do you like it?
-I've got a little tear in my eye!
-It's really, really nice.
-I wish I'd lost more weight.
I don't think it's to do with the dress. It's your confidence.
I think after having the baby she still sees herself as huge,
even though she's ridiculously skinny, which is a problem.
'If Emily doesn't like herself in anything, what chance does Paul have of getting it right?'
There's a lot of dresses here
and lots of people think they're lovely dresses,
and I just don't like them.
'Paul's not so fussed what Emily will look like.
'He's thinking about making savings.'
-Do many people wear veils?
The majority of girls wear a veil and a tiara. It's up to the bride.
-She doesn't get a choice.
-No. It's up to you!
They used to give the brides away before they met the partners, and it was the lifting of it,
to reveal the face, to see whether you got a hound!
To me, they're like net curtains.
Everyone wears one. I can't imagine getting married without a veil.
I've decided she ain't having a veil. It's a waste of money.
It's a way of getting rid of the net curtains from the '80s.
I don't think she needs it.
I know she's beautiful. She doesn't need a bleedin' net curtain!
'Paul's found a shop with a half-price wedding dress sale.'
What I'm looking for is quite a simple dress, nothing over-the-top.
A bit too simple?
That's quite heavy.
I'm actually enjoying it! How sad's that?
She's got a great set of boobs.
She used to be 34B and I reckon she's a bit bigger.
-They've gone down but they're still bigger than what they were.
-Less milk in them now.
That's why they were bigger!
-How much is this dress?
-This one was 850 full price.
-And how much is this one?
-I could do that for 400.
-I really like that.
'400? Is it the dress or the price tag he likes?'
This is more expensive. You're looking at 975 but it's silk.
The second one. The second one.
'A decision. And a small dent in the budget.
'The dress and shoes come in at just £500.'
Thanks a lot. Cheers.
That dress looks like it should be a grand and a half.
If Emily don't know, I don't think she'd think it's a cheap dress.
'Paul may have got a bargain, but it doesn't reflect how he feels about Emily.'
When I first got with Emily, I'd just got out a bad relationship.
I was in a lot of debt from when I left the army.
I was hiding from a lot of money problems.
She's done a lot for me.
She showed me that I can't run away from a lot of problems.
Now, we managed to pay back over...
probably 11 grand's worth of debt last year.
I wouldn't have been able to get a mortgage without her.
We've got a lovely kid.
We live in quite a nice area.
In two years' time, we're going to owe no money whatsoever and afford to buy better things.
If I weren't with Emily,
I'd still be stuck in quite a bad area
with a crap job
and no prospects, to be honest.
I'm not doing this cos I owe her financially or anything.
I'm doing it cos I love her.
'And over at her mum's,
'Emily's finding life without Paul tough going.'
I just feel lonely. It doesn't feel quite right going to be on your own.
Putting Ethan to bed on his own and being in a strange room
is not very nice.
'It's been a week and Paul's spent the best part of seven grand.'
A chicken jalfrezi please, mate.
'When Emily left, she gave him access to their joint account.'
Thank you. I'll give you my card.
She knows what I'm like. I've just spent £30 on a meal.
I could have spent a tenner on a takeaway, but she understands.
'Emily understands all right, and she isn't about to let Paul fritter their money away.'
Since I left, I think he's spent about... It's well over 200 now.
It keeps increasing every time I check.
I've got £100 out and then there's like...
..about 50 left for him.
He'll have a nice shock when he goes to withdraw some money.
I'm not impressed, I have to say.
I thought he would be better behaved.
My confidence in Paul is going down.
If he can't control our bank account I don't know what he's doing with 12 grand.
If he's got 12 grand to spend, I bet he's wasted most of it very quickly.
Probably not very sensible things.
He'll be in big trouble!
'With the Thursday wedding imminent, Paul has less than two weeks.'
I'm looking at booking a chocolate fountain. 350 for 80 people.
'He's putting his own stamp on the extras.'
Just to confirm, the hog roast will be in the evening at nine o'clock.
If we could do it, I'd like the head on.
Do you actually put the apple in the mouth like in the olden days?
So that was 620, wasn't it, for everything?
Is that Tansy? So we've got the DJ and karaoke.
Just to confirm what James will be doing. Does he have a routine?
Unicycling, you say? And fire juggling. Brilliant.
So that's £800 for the DJ, James and also the harpist?
And the karaoke. Brilliant.
I might actually know when my wedding is?
I hope these aren't the invitations. I don't like hand-written ones.
"My lovely bride-to-be!"
"To celebrate the marriage of Paul and you!"
30th April. When's that?
Thursday? Oh, my God!
I wouldn't have chosen a Thursday.
I didn't want one in the week. I don't think many people will come.
'A weekday wedding is awkward for everyone,
'including Hannah, who's struggling to get a day off work.'
It would really upset me if I couldn't go.
She might ignore it until she knows I can't come.
Then she will get very upset and she gets angry when she gets upset.
I don't want to tell her!
-There is a slight issue.
-In that, like...I'm not 100% if I can actually be there.
-You know I will kill you.
-I've arranged to try to sort it out.
I'll try and change what I'm doing but it's unfortunate timing really.
People aren't going to get the time off work. There'll just be a few people.
I'm really upset because the thought of missing your wedding is horrible.
-You know I'll do everything I can to get there.
I didn't want to turn round a day before and say I can't come.
I wanted to give you warning.
It just seems pointless.
If you can't come, then what's the point in doing it?
'Back home, the consequences start to sink in.'
I don't think he's thought
how hard it will be for guests to get there at short notice.
If he hasn't thought about that, then how seriously has he thought about everything else?
The venue, the flowers. I don't know if he's taken it that seriously.
I'm getting scared that it's not going to be what I want.
'Paul knows exactly what HE wants!'
# The minute you walked in the joint
# I could see you were a man of distinction, a real big spender #
-She's a bit smaller than that.
-Nicer than the feeding bra!
Not her granny knickers!
I don't want her thinking I'm being a pervert, doing it for my pleasure.
How can you tell which is girl's and boy's? ..No!
That one is £525.
# Hey, big spender!
# Hey, big spender!
# Hey, big spender! #
Nice isn't it? It's different as well.
- Where will I keep my fags? - Made his bum look big!
He just took his first two steps.
'Facing another night alone, Paul cheers himself up by giving the joint account another battering.'
That'll be the pizza.
I haven't cooked since Emily's been gone.
I've had takeaways every single night.
If it got to the point when I had no money,
I'd be forced to open a can of beans.
Emily won't be happy when she checks the bank statement.
She'll understand. I'm on me own. I'm lonely.
'While Paul consoles himself with junk food, Emily whinges to Gill and Helen.'
-How do you think the wedding's going?
-Do you not have faith in your husband-to-be?
Might not be my husband-to-be. He's cleared my bank account out.
I don't know how much I've spent. I haven't bothered keeping track.
I haven't spent that much. I think she'll be fine.
I'm going to kill him.
He's spent all my money and I'm quite annoyed.
-What do you mean "your" money?
-All right, he earned it!
I said, "Leave me some money." He cleared it out properly.
-What's he done?
-I have no idea.
I bought the jumper. It's nothing special.
For the next day when we wake up in a castle and go for breakfast,
our first day of marriage, I wanted something nice.
I paid 65 for it.
It is a Hugo Boss jumper and they're 150 so she saved herself a bit.
Cos Emily's not here controlling me, I know I'm spending too much.
I can sense her communicating, saying, "Stop it!"
'With one week to go, Emily's finally received some good news.
'Hannah can make the wedding.'
Good luck. Good luck, Paul.
Good luck Paul!
I am excited about seeing the dress, but also quite scared.
I don't want to be horrible about it cos I know Paul has tried so hard.
If you come down the aisle in a different dress, he'd be upset.
He'd probably cry if you were like, "That's horrible."
The wedding night you've got to consummate... Is it consummate?
Trying to get her wedding dress off seductively!
"Unlace me! Catch this! Pull that!" It's not going to be a nice moment.
-If you don't have sex, you can get it annulled.
-Maybe I'll hold off!
Normally, on a wedding night you're far too tired.
Everyone says, "I'm far too tired for that kind of thing!"
I don't think you can get away with not after three weeks. Poor Paul.
-Give him permission if you fall asleep he can continue!
-Been there. Done that!
'With time and money running out, Paul belatedly consults his budget.'
I've got between 800 and £1,000 left, I think.
There's a lot to do. Photographer, tiara.
'Time for a few sums, then.'
Wedding dress, 550.
Bridesmaids' dresses, 475.
Suit hire, 420.
The hair and nails, 268.
Chocolate fountain, 350.
Magazines, 20. Make-up, 40.
Harpist, DJ and the jester, that was 800.
Hog roast, 620.
I haven't put the new coach hire figure down. Um...
Yeah, the total's now... £11,935.
Basically, I've got 65 quid left.
That isn't including hen do, stag do.
I am disappointed. I've let myself down.
I knew roughly what I wanted to spend on everything.
I knew that I had to make savings. I thought I'd done the savings.
'Emily's almost ready for her hen night,
'an evening meant to be covered by the wedding budget.'
Mummy's going out!
Tonight, the girls are on a hen do. They'll be leaving fairly shortly.
I've got to find 150 quid from somewhere. Well, about 175 quid.
Emily's mum and dad would give me money if they needed to.
They've done a hell of a lot for me and Emily, given us a lot of money, the deposit for our house.
I don't want to go back to them.
I will have failed, in a way. I'm not going to ask for money.
I'm going to have to go back to Emily's mum and dad.
You all right? You look nice.
A bit of bad news. Budget has come to an end.
-I wanted to see if I could borrow a bit of money.
-200 I could probably do.
Basically, it's 125 for the cocktails. £50 for Emily's budget.
I'm hoping, cos it's a hen night, everyone will buy her drinks anyway.
-I'll go and find a cashpoint. Where's a cashpoint?
-Thanks a lot.
'Fran's happy to help out, but is it the right moment to share the news?'
-Guess why I had to see Paul? Three guesses.
-I don't know.
It doesn't really surprise me that Paul has run out of money.
I'm furious. Just want to go and get drunk.
I'm upset about having to borrow the money.
Putting extra pressure onto Emily.
It's not nice
and it is something that, you know, is going to upset me,
thinking that Emily's upset.
'Emily's fully aware that she and Paul have to pay her mum back.'
-Here are your spends.
'And with tonight costing almost £200,
'she's having trouble letting her hair down.'
I don't think we'd ever get married.
Now you're talking!
'There are no spends left for Paul's stag night.'
I've got 40 quid.
I'm hoping that I don't have to touch that.
I'm hoping the lad will be buying most of the drinks.
I think you should now tell us all just why Paul is the one!
Paul doesn't argue back, which is always good.
-Oh, be nice! >
-I have been nice.
You have a nice man that loves you and wants to marry you and have a baby and you're like, "Oh!"
You can't even say a few words, declaring undying love.
He's an arsehole!
I love Emily to bits. I didn't realise how much I'd miss her.
I miss her terribly.
I've loved her a hell of a lot more than I've ever loved anyone before.
Does Paul make you happy?
-Oh, be nice! >
-I am being nice!
I'm ringing Paul. "Don't marry the bitch!"
You're a big cow! Admit it!
-Paul knows how much I love him.
-Paul used to be a player.
Paul used to try and be a player.
-But he's settled down.
-He failed big-time being a player!
'And on that note, Emily decides she's had enough.
'The following morning, she's fuming over Paul's bad financial planning.'
I knew he'd ask my mum for some money at some point.
Paul's very good at borrowing money but not at paying it back.
There's going to be a lot of sorting out and I'll have to do that. So I'm not best pleased about that.
'If it was up to Emily, photos would be a priority.'
It's the first time we'll have some proper photos of the pair of us.
I want to like the photos and not have issues with them.
Surely, he'll get a photographer.
'Oh, no he hasn't!
'With the budget spent, there won't be a photographer unless Paul claws back money from somewhere.'
I'm on my way to the castle to meet Mr Naylor
to find out whether it's too late to cancel any of the hotel rooms.
I need to cancel as many as I can so I can free up some money to get a photographer.
I was trying to be nice for everyone.
To be honest, it's come back to bite me in the arse.
If I can't cancel the rooms, I'm going to be devastated.
I really badly want to get a photographer.
I'm not going to be able to do it.
'Paul spent over £1,000 on bedrooms for his friends and family. He needs that money back.'
There's one little problem that I've got.
Is there any chance of cancelling a couple of the rooms?
The difficulty there, Paul, is that our booking policy
is that any rooms within two weeks are chargeable. I'm afraid we have to stick with that.
'With a no from Mr Naylor, no money left in his budget and no funds of his own,
'Paul is left with no photographer.'
I'm very, very gutted. I need to figure out what I'm going to do now.
'There is one place he's not drawn any cash from yet. His mum.'
What have you got left to do then, Paul?
Well, basically, um...
-I've run out of money now.
But I haven't got a photographer yet.
Will you have to use your own money?
I've got none.
-Didn't you say you wanted to give me money?
-Are you sure?
-I still need to find 300 quid.
-I'll loan you 300 as well.
-Are you sure?
-< Can I have some funds?
But I want a group photo!
'£500 and a free haircut later,
'Paul needs to book a very last-minute photographer.'
It's this Thursday.
'With 24 hours to go, Paul's mission is almost complete.
'Emily is about to come face-to-face with the dress he chose for her.
'Or is she?'
I'm about to ring the bridal shop cos Emily's going in for the dress fitting.
I want her to be blindfolded.
Just so if she doesn't like it, she's not worrying overnight.
'Interesting logic, Paul(!)'
-Cheshire Bridal Wear.
-Hello, how are you?
I don't want her to see the dress so if you can just blindfold her,
that would be great.
-Are you sure about this?
-Yeah. I'm sure.
Thank you. Bye-bye.
Oh, my goodness!
Um... A little bit scary. We've never had this before.
We don't know how a bride will react.
A big part of the day is seeing the wedding dress and feeling it.
We'll have to see how she reacts when she gets here.
-What are you going to do if you don't like it?
-Cry. And shout.
He's asked that you do not see or touch the dress today.
< Not until tomorrow.
Oh, my God!
I don't think I want to do that.
I don't think that's fair. What if I absolutely hate it tomorrow?
She'll go along with it.
I'm not going to get married if I don't see the dress today.
How definite are you that you don't want Emily to see the dress?
I know I picked a really nice dress,
but if she's got any concerns, I don't want her worrying tonight.
It's going to be a nice surprise. She's waited three weeks, she can wait another day.
You think she'll have a good night's sleep? She will not sleep tonight.
I'm advising you, for your own safety, let her see it.
She's not impressed.
She'll like it. That's it. End of.
I just spoke to Paul. He thinks you'll have a better night's sleep!
This is ruining my day. It's ruining it.
I was looking forward to this so much.
He's just ruining it.
I feel so self-conscious about my body.
For me to walk down the aisle is going to be hard enough.
To not know the dress is going to make me feel so awful about myself.
She's gone three weeks and let me organise everything.
She wouldn't do that unless she had confidence in me.
It's a part of me staying in control that little bit longer.
It will ruin everybody's day if I don't feel good.
If the flowers are wrong, it's not the end of the world. If the dress is wrong, it's the end of the world.
'Can two bridesmaids change Paul's mind?'
-Paul, it's Gill and Hannah here.
We need you to change your decision on Em seeing the dress.
She's really upset.
Has she had it on yet?
No. She's not willing to try it on.
She's crying. Any possibility you could change your mind on this?
She'll have to see it, then.
Thanks then. Good luck. Bye.
Apparently, she's really upset.
She's been crying her eyes out. She's not even tried it on yet so...
I've got to let her see it.
She'll cry if she doesn't like it.
She'll scream if we say, "It's nice!"
I think he's done really well.
He's chosen better than I chose.
I really like it.
-HANNAH: It's beautiful!
-Thank God I saw it, though!
It's nice. Oh, yes.
Good job, otherwise he'd have been in so much BLEEP now!
I like all of it.
I can relax now and prepare myself for the shock of tomorrow.
'It seems Emily still has no faith in Paul's decisions.
'For him, it's been about more than planning a wedding.'
Emily finds it hard to let go.
I'm hoping after this, she's going to trust me a bit more.
I've enjoyed having the control and the power.
If she doesn't like it, I'll have two black eyes outside the castle!
'Paul may feel like a new man, but will his medieval castle,
'civil ceremony and chocolate colour scheme
'make Emily feel like a princess?
'The wedding morning, and the bride's already on a downer.'
I'm really tired. Ethan had me up at half five.
'But within minutes, an army of stylists arrive.'
-Come to give you a hand with the wedding.
-Thank God for that!
-I'm sure you'll like it.
-I'll kill him if I don't.
'They're under strict instructions from Paul.'
This might not work out great. How does a man know about hair?
Yours is going to look nice, Em.
-That's so pretty.
-Does this mean there's no veil?
I don't know about a veil.
Well, tiara it is.
Are you bothered about not having a veil?
A little bit.
-Oh, my God!
-Do you like it?
I don't know. It doesn't look like me.
You look wonderful. Didn't recognise you.
It looks really beautiful.
'The surprises keep on coming.'
-I'm the make-up artist.
-Oh, my God!
I feel a bit sick, really.
We haven't done a practice run of walking down the aisle.
Where do we sit? Do we stand behind you the whole way?
-How do you know what to say...?
-Stop talking! Stop scaring me!
-Are they the flowers?
-Your bouquet. How nice is that?
-Do you like them?
-Yeah. I never would have thought of gold.
-Can we get the dress on now?
How near to being ready are you?
Do you want a slap? >
"Do you want a slap!"
-Look at you!
'To Emily's surprise, Paul's thought of everything.'
It's perfect. He's done very well.
Slightly looking like a Barbie doll
but if that's what Paul likes... each to their own.
I'll see you when we get there.
'So far, it looks like Emily might be getting the traditional wedding she's always dreamed of.'
I can't breathe. This had better be a quick journey.
'It's a 45-minute drive, just enough time to start roasting a hog.'
-Do you like it?
-I think it's pretty bloody amazing!
'The guests are impressed but Emily's just realised she's not getting married in her church.'
I'm not going to St John's. I always would have liked a church.
I just hope everything else is nice.
I think Emily's going to be seriously impressed with this.
Oh, my God!
Wow! It's actually a proper castle.
WOMAN: Remember to tell her how fantastic she looks.
Which won't be difficult. I've just seen her.
You all right, babe? You look great.
-I'm really scared.
-You did well.
I love you.
-You look beautiful.
Will you Paul William Galton
take Emily Claire Mary Pridham here present
to be your lawful wedded wife?
Do you Emily Claire Mary Pridham
take Paul William Galton to be your lawful wedded husband?
Can I ask who has the rings?
-Oh, my God, Paul!
-Do you like that?
Always something, Paul.
-I forgot your mum don't like birds.
-Luckily, she's still there.
You're now husband and wife.
'Paul hasn't forgotten that his bride wanted a church wedding.'
-We're doing it again in the church across the road.
Oh, my God!
May the blessing of God almighty, the father, the son and the holy spirit,
be with you both now and forever more.
'How many brides walk down the aisle twice on their wedding day?'
It wouldn't have felt right if she hadn't had the blessing.
Paul has done a fantastic job. You can't fault anything.
He chose a superb dress for Emily. She was very happy with it.
^ Paul's done fantastic. It would take a lot to exceed this.
'By the skin of his teeth, Paul's even managed to get a photographer.'
Oh! How good does it look?!
I would have had flowers and chair covers.
-It's different but of equal standard to what I would have done.
-Is there anything you'd change?
-Apart from that bloody bird!
-No, Paul. It was awful.
'Paul's keen to show Emily what he blew the budget on.'
Oh, my God!
-Smells nice, don't it?
-Nice? It's a dead animal.
-Oh, my God!
I knew he'd have ruddy chocolate fountain.
It's huge! Is that the biggest one?
What a surprise. Paul's budget's gone on more food!
'And, of course, he saved the best till last.'
# And I-I-I-I will always love you... #
I still hate karaoke. You know I would never have had karaoke.
-Everyone enjoys it, though.
Looking back, we probably should have had flowers.
I'm happy with my bag.
I did feel an idiot walking down the aisle with a bag.
I'm going to use it again tomorrow.
I don't think anyone's personally to blame that he went over budget.
If he had a budget of 30,000, 50,000
he'd have spent every last penny, and then some more.
That's what he thinks you do with budgets. They're to be stretched.
That's why he needs Emily.
-Are you going to be able to relax and let me do more things?
-No? We'll see.
# ..I'll always love you. #
# Cos baby
# You're gonna be the one that saves me
# And after all
# You're my wonderwall. #
