Catherine and Richard are madly in love.
They've been engaged for three years, but can't afford to marry.
All the savings that we had went into the house.
And Catherine's dream wedding doesn't come cheap.
I've been thinking about my wedding since I was about five years old.
I love that!
So, we're giving them £12,000 towards their big day,
and a chance for Richard to prove himself to the woman he loves.
But there's a catch...
They've agreed, in the presence of a lawyer, that Richard will organise the wedding alone.
They'll have absolutely no contact,
and the bride won't know a single thing about her wedding
until the big day in three weeks' time.
Only she knows what perfect is.
Can Richard live up to Catherine's great expectations?
I do want a traditional Scottish wedding with kilts.
Or will best man Phil lead him astray?
I'm gonna be drinking till 4 o'clock tomorrow morning, then we're gonna go and see this minister.
Will his bride fall apart before she even makes it up the aisle?
Why can't I just have one thing that I really want?
Can this man give this woman a day she'll never forget?
I only wanna do this once, and it's got to be big.
Today, Catherine is moving out of the home she shares with Richard in Birmingham.
Catherine's heritage is very different from her fiance's.
She's from Scotland, while Richard is a Londoner
whose father came over from Guyana, on the Caribbean coast of South America.
I guess I must inherit that from my dad, my relaxed kind of attitude to life.
That laid back lifestyle.
But there's nothing laid back about the girl he first met as a student.
-You asked me out.
It was a long time ago!
What do you mean, "OK"?
Yeah, you did.
While Richard has to be organised in his job as a project manager,
at home it's Catherine who calls the shots.
I'm the boss in the relationship.
-I am, amn't I?
-I was going to jump in and say "I am."
No, I'm the one that makes all the decisions.
I've control of the finances, anything that happens, I usually decide on.
Mind your feet.
It's not just the finances she likes to be in control of.
I don't like things not in the right place. Everything needs to be where it needs to be.
If it's not, I get a bit agitated.
But now, perfectionist Catherine will be letting laid back Richard
organise the biggest day of her life.
My dream wedding, I'd get married in a castle.
Definitely it would be in Scotland.
There would definitely be kilts.
The wedding day is massively important to me,
it has to be perfect and I can't quite believe that I'm letting him organise it.
If Richard get this wrong, his life will not be worth living.
Before she leaves, Catherine has got some last-minute advice for her man.
Don't think I'm not here, so you the one making all the decisions,
so you just make decisions that you'd want, or you think.
It's a wedding day, so you should think about what I'd like.
You're supposed to be trying to please me, and make me happy,
so you should be thinking about what do you think I'd want.
Should we not try and make it a special day for both of us?
You're doing this to please me, so you should make sure that I'm happy.
And if I'm happy, you're happy. That's how it works.
That's cleared that up, then.
I've got a little bit more.
Catherine is going to be staying with chief bridesmaid, Felicity.
You're only going for three weeks, love, not three years!
-I'm going to miss you.
-I'll miss you too.
It'll be OK though, short stuff.
Don't call me short!
-It's all right, don't worry.
-I'm going to miss you.
You'll be fine though.
The next time she sees Richard will be at the altar.
He's on his own now, with Catherine's future happiness in his hands.
Fortunately, help is at hand.
Brother Matthew and best mate Phil arrive, to help him mastermind the big day.
Hey! Good to see you.
Although Phil has been Richard's best friend since childhood, not everyone is a fan.
Hey, bruv, good to see you too.
I don't think that Phil has a great deal of style or class about him.
Where do we start?
They'll forget what they're supposed to be doing and go out drinking and be hung over.
I've got more inspiration when I'm pissed.
I'm really not sure that I'm going to get the wedding I'm hoping for.
At Felicity's house, Catherine is just starting to realise the implications
of letting the boys organise her wedding.
I know that I won't get all the little detailed things that I'd want.
I kind of know that I won't get that.
Even things like, I realised that Richard wouldn't know that you get a guest book at a wedding.
So, I probably won't get one.
There's more space than that in the fridge, definitely.
Let's get out.
Cheers, thank you. See you later.
Do guys know that you get favours at weddings?
Let's start a little conveyor belt.
Looks quite good, if you ask me.
Phase one, complete.
Phase two is, finally, a little bit of wedding planning.
Perhaps it's just the name, but little brother Matthew
thinks he's already found the perfect wedding venue.
I'm not getting married in Matthew's Manor! Where is it?
-It's in Birmingham, but it's actually really nice.
-Turn it round?
There's one picture.
-That's actually in Birmingham?
-Look. Go back.
Matthew, that's Birmingham, Alabama.
-That's in America.
-It did say Birmingham there, though!
Crack on, Matt!
I am, I promise you.
Fortunately, Richard thinks he's found somewhere closer to home.
What do you think of this place, Wroxall Abbey?
That's going to be way too expensive, isn't it?
They've wedding packages.
£92.50 per person.
That's quite expensive, isn't it?
It may be costly, but is it even available?
Good afternoon, I've just found your website on the internet and I'm interested in booking a wedding.
I was wondering what availability you had over the next few weeks?
The weekend of the 23rd?
Of May, yes.
I see. Would there be someone today, if we could have a look around?
Unbelievable, they've got nothing they're all that weekend, on that Saturday.
-There's nothing there all day. None of it is booked.
They haven't even seen it yet.
Catherine's got no say in the wedding, but she knows exactly where she wants her reception to be.
And it's in Scotland.
She's taking her mum for a look around.
Hi there, Catherine. Welcome to Cameron House.
Let me show you both round.
With its tartan settees...
Stag heads, and tartan carpets.
This is where the wedding breakfast is served.
You know what this needs?
I'd certainly be wanting some sort of ribbon in the centrepiece in tartan.
I love that the tables are named after the different lochs, I really like that.
It's made me realise that I do want a traditional Scottish wedding, with kilts, and that is what I want.
Unfortunately, there aren't many Scottish castles near Birmingham.
The boys have an appointment at the quintessentially English Wroxall Abbey estate.
This is our Broadwood bar, and this is where we normally do all the reception drinks.
It's definitely nice, isn't it?
-Everything just seems just so.
Just so English.
We turn this round, so that you can have a wedding breakfast, second to none, in here.
You've got that beautiful view to look out on.
That's not a loch, that's a water feature.
As you can see, we've got a lovely view here over the loch.
-Ah, that's more like it.
-It is beautiful.
Have you thought about entertainment at all?
Um...I mean, I would really like a piper,
some sort of real traditional bagpipe piper theme at the arrival.
As for the actual reception, I really want a ceilidh band and I don't to budge on that.
That would be what I'd have, a ceilidh band, definitely.
This is Lemon Trees, this is the room we use mainly for dancing.
I mean, you can really pump up the volume, have a really good party.
And what we do is put a couple of tea lights, maybe one or two balloons, that's all you really need.
I can't see them dancing the Gay Gordons in here.
As well as a Scottish castle,
Catherine's heart is set on getting married in her family church,
St Ninians in Kirkintilloch.
Richard doesn't have a strong religious background.
He doesn't have any real belief or faith.
I was brought up in a Catholic family,
with a sense of going to church
and a bit of religion and tradition behind us.
This is so beautiful.
Did you always see yourself getting married here?
If I had...
You didn't think you're going to marry an English man, did you?
No, no. If I'd never moved away, to go to uni,
then this was always where I imagined I'd get married.
You could imagine just walking down here,
nice little flowers on the end of every pew,
white ribbons and flowers tied on.
And my dad would obviously be in a kilt.
And you dad would be in a kilt, yes.
I always thought it would be here, or somewhere here.
Well, it won't be here. Richard is 250 miles south,
and has come across a chapel in the grounds of Wroxall Abbey.
This is our chapel, guys.
Don't you think it's beautiful?
It's magnificent. Absolutely gorgeous.
Walk in here and bring the house down.
It's not Catherine's family church, and it's not a done deal.
To stand any chance of getting married here,
Richard will have to get permission from the minister in charge.
It feels like it ticks all the boxes.
It is ticking all the boxes.
It looks wonderful, it's a magnificent place.
So nice and quiet and peaceful.
Honest, nothing can go wrong.
Unless, of course, the minister says "no"...
A minor detail that doesn't stop Richard forking out five grand.
-What's that the smell of?
-There's nothing you can't do!
-The smell of victory.
It may be the smell of victory, but there's not a whiff of Scotland.
On the crest of a wave, Richard and Phil decide it's time to tackle their hardest challenge.
She's quite slim and slender, about size eight I'd say, roughly.
-That's really nice, too.
-This is diamond white, whereas these two are ivory.
-I don't have a clue.
-You don't have a clue?
I genuinely don't know.
Richard may not know his own mind, but his bride certainly does.
She's in Glasgow, fantasy wedding dress shopping with Mum and sister Alison.
Don't like that. Don't like straps.
Don't like that. Don't like it. Ugh, ugh. Yuk, don't like that.
Nope. It's the same there. Don't like it.
I love that!
In Birmingham, Richard's praying for inspiration.
-What are you thinking?
-I think I need to find somebody to try it on.
-I'll go and have a look in the pub.
-Go and look in the pub.
And 30 seconds later...
Excuse me, I wonder if you could help me.
There we go.
Do you want to come with me?
It looks like choosy Catherine might have found her dream dress.
What do you think?
-Do you like that?
Look at the train at the back.
It does have a train.
-There you go.
-I do want a train now that I've seen it.
I absolutely love it. I think it's absolutely stunning.
It is, it's nice.
And it isn't what I would have chosen, but I do love it.
I like it, I really like it.
Don't get too attached!
I know, but I really, really like it.
The boys are also in luck.
You stand here and we'll show Richard.
That's really nice, really, really nice.
-All laced up for you.
-It is nice.
-Do you know what?
-We've got a serious problem.
-I think we've found it.
-Don't say that.
No, I'm being serious, mate, cos we keep walking into places,
and the first thing we see is the first thing that's gonna work well for this wedding,
and I think we've found the dress.
Haven't you noticed something, boys?
It's staring you right in the face.
I think we need to see a couple, though.
Just to be on the safe side.
Funnily enough, Catherine's also having trouble committing.
What do you think?
That's nice, I like that.
I like that one, that's the one I liked.
-I think I do prefer this.
-Oh, God, Catherine!
Two minutes ago, you says, "Oh, this is my dream dress!"
No, but there's something...there is something really elegant about this.
Richard hasn't got a hope in hell of getting this one right, I'm telling you.
The same realisation has just dawned on Richard.
I feel sick.
I genuinely don't wanna do it.
You ain't got a choice.
Simple as that.
OK, Richard, number two.
Just lift it up a little bit for me. That's it, look.
-Turn yourself round.
-This is gonna be hard.
This is gonna be really hard, that's really nice, too.
-There we go.
-I really like it.
We're in trouble.
But not for the reason you think, mate.
They still haven't realised they're looking at size 14 dresses for a size 6 bride.
If the dress is too big, if it actually doesn't fit, then I won't be wearing it.
It's that simple, I'm not wearing a dress that doesn't fit.
Ready for the next one, Richard?
Yeah. Definitely now, yeah.
Don't look so stressed, it'll be fine. Here we go.
That's lovely, really, really...
That is really, really nice.
-That is really, really, really nice.
That's now my favourite.
-That's just become my favourite really quickly.
-I think that is it.
But, lads, it's four sizes too big.
How much is that dress?
-950. That's spot-on.
-How much does it cost for the veil as well, sorry?
-The veil's 95.
Mate, I'll make you one. I'll make you one!
# She's in fashion... #
So Richard has got a dress that doesn't fit and a venue he might not be able to get married in.
It must be time to kick back and relax.
Come on, boys.
Come on, close him down!
Tomorrow, Richard needs to convince the minister of the chapel to marry him.
It's half-time, he's half-cut and totally unprepared.
-How many hymns do you know?
-I remember one from primary school.
What are we going to say tomorrow when he says hymns? Kumbaya...
Just turn around to him and say, "What's the most commonly used?"
Do I explain to him...
We're not religious and we don't know anything about it, no.
-I don't want to say that, cos he might go, "Oh..."
-"See you later."
If he's a Christian priest, do we mention that Catherine's Catholic?
-Well, that's another thing we need to look up before tomorrow, actually.
-Yeah, I think we do.
Just type in Google, "Difference between Catholic and Christians," done.
-I'm telling you.
-I think so.
It's not just a church wedding that's important to Catholic girl Catherine.
What would you expect, in the grand scheme of things, he's got done this week?
I would hope that there's a venue, a dress,
invites have gone out,
he's considered the shoes and probably suits,
and then maybe even considered flowers or table decorations by now.
-Does it really matter at the end of the day if things don't co-ordinate and don't match?
Are you joking? Of course it matters!
No, but what I mean is, it really doesn't matter whether the ribbon
on the invite matches the ribbon on the place cards
and that matches the colour of the bridesmaid dresses.
The whole process is the fact that you two love each other
and you're gonna spend the rest of your lives together.
-Was that a joke?
-What? I thought that was beautiful.
Yeah, yeah, it does. Ultimately, the outcome's still gonna be the same,
but Richard getting this right should be testament to how well he knows me
and how much he wants to make it right,
so really it does matter if the ribbons on the invite match the ribbon on the cake.
If she knew what the boys were up to, matching ribbon would be the least of her worries.
It's absolutely unbelievable! I said they would score. I said they would score tonight.
What about Phil, then, Cat? What do you think Phil is going to be leading Richard into?
I really think that they'll be being real laddie lads.
They deserved that.
-I'm gonna hit you in a minute.
-They deserved it!
And Phil will lead him astray.
-We've got to see a minister in the morning.
-I don't care, pub.
-I'm sure it's not a good idea.
-You're worried that you've got to go and see this minister tomorrow.
-He's a massive, massive influence on what we do.
-Listen, that's a big thing. We've had nine beers.
Are you telling me that two beers are going to make one bit of difference?
Right, let's go for one. That's my compromise, let's go for one.
You have met me halfway.
You have met me halfway.
It's never gonna be one, is it? It's never gonna be one.
It IS gonna be one. Well, no, it's gonna be two.
-You know as well as I do, right,
you say we go for one, I'm saying we go for two,
-it will be two.
# Der, der-der, der-der... #
It's the morning after the night before, and the day of reckoning for relaxed Richard.
Presumably he got an early night.
The Malibu got finished, Archers got finished, we ran out of mixers.
And we did only have one drink at the pub.
Just didn't account for the ones at the house, that was all.
Phil's had no sleep at all, and I've had three hours.
You particularly wanted a Christian wedding?
Erm, I think, for me, a church wedding's very important.
-It's very symbolic of what you're doing, to be married in the eyes of the Church.
It's a very important tradition, I feel, to me.
Good. So I make two assumptions, because you want a church wedding.
-The first one is that you want God in your marriage,
and you'll have to speak for Catherine as well on this one.
On her side of the family, I think that's a definite, her family are very heavily religious.
My side of the family are not so, not so much.
But for that, I think it's very important for both of us
to start on the right foot, really, and have God in it.
Has he done enough to convince the minister to marry him?
So the commitment that you're both making to each other,
you're happy for that to be a commitment for life?
-Happy, very happy, sir, yeah.
-Well, on that basis, we'll go ahead.
That's fantastic, that's a massive, massive relief.
Put a smile on there.
I feel like I can sit back a little bit maybe now.
Thank you very much. I need to shake your hand, thank you very much.
-That's massively important.
Thanks very much for your time this morning.
The chapel wedding is on.
In three days, we've got something that's supposed to take months,
-so, going by that, this is gonna be a doddle.
With two weeks to go, Richard still has everything to do.
He needs flowers, invitations, a cake, entertainment
and bridesmaid dresses, as well as suits for him and the ushers.
-This is quite tidy and clean cut, isn't it?
-Yeah. Smashed it.
-That looks really nice.
-Cinderella, you shall go to the ball.
So if you want to go through, the end fitting room's free.
Very smart, boys, but Catherine only wants her men folk in one thing.
If Richard even was to try on a kilt, just to see what it would be like, it would mean a lot to me.
The bad news is I've only got one kilt left.
There's no way I'm wearing that.
It means a lot to me that my dad's in a kilt if no-one else is.
I don't know if Richard knows that.
The groom does know he needs to get something Scottish into this wedding.
Maybe his bride will appreciate tartan invites.
-Do you like that one?
-Yeah, some of them are quite horrible, though.
-It's Scottish, it's not meant to be nice.
I actually hate them all.
Well, it's up to you.
I'd only send the tartan to her side of the family, cos they'll appreciate that.
We could do 11 invitations for Cat's family in tartan.
If you get that blue one, well, it's green as well, which means it would go with flowers.
-Let's get that.
That's the best of a bad bunch.
But second best isn't exactly what his perfectionist bride has in mind.
After all that hard work, Phil's got brain ache.
Fortunately, Richard's showing some grit and is determined to finalise the design of his invitations.
He knows that first impressions will count.
This will be the first thing that Catherine sees and that Catherine's family see...
and my family see, in fact the first thing everyone sees.
I'm worried that getting this wrong will set the wrong tone off about what's gonna happen on the day.
Do you think pink dots is an issue or not?
Oh, it is if the tartan's green, isn't it?
Something's wrong there.
It's upside down.
That's why it doesn't match up, it's upside down.
That's the bottom and that's the top.
Not a good start, Phil. I printed the second part upside down.
Oh, well, teething problems.
Yeah, that's all it is, man. Listen, as long as they're done by Monday.
Catherine's got issues of her own.
She's missing her man and is keeping a diary to show him after the wedding.
"Just right now it's so, so, so hard not being able to talk to you,
"and it feels ridiculous not knowing one single thing
"about your plans for our best day ever.
"How's that all going, by the way?
"I hope you're busy but not stressing too much.
"Make sure you're eating well and get enough sleep.
"But please know that I miss you...and I can't wait to see you."
I think the only thing that stops me packing up and going home was...
the look on his face if I ever did,
the disappointment and the hurt that that would cause him,
cos I don't think he would ever forgive me if I didn't stick it out for the last couple of weeks.
I just miss him.
I can't explain how much I miss him.
Not even a text message in the middle of the day or just seeing him at the end of the day to make dinner.
All the little tiny things
that make our lives ours is missing.
And it is really hard.
So I'm just clinging on to that image of meeting him on our wedding day
and knowing that...
after this we've got the rest of our lives to be happy.
# One, two, three, uh
# My baby don't mess around
# Because she loves me so And this I know for sure... #
Back at wedding HQ, the boys have no time for reflection.
There are lots of things they haven't even thought about yet.
Maybe a bridal magazine will have the answers.
That kind of colour for the bridal dresses and the flowers.
They do look nice, cos it's not too bold either, it's kind of light.
Lilac and pink, everything is lilac and pink. What do you reckon?
Not bad, not bad.
That's the colour scheme sorted, then.
If you imagine the lilac there, it goes really nice with the colour.
-Have you got a colour theme for your wedding?
-At the moment it's lilac.
I think these would be a nice little touch.
For the lilac.
Three, four... How many tiers is that?
-That's the second tier.
-That's the cake done.
Yeah, look at him!
Smashed it! Right, that's you two, that's you two.
That's the babies there. Well spotted.
They're definites, they need to go on.
-Where's the mixed-race groom? Come on!
-At least they got me right.
Well, they will be smashed soon.
It's the weekend before the wedding and time for Richard's stag night.
# There's only one Richard! #
I think no-one predicted that we would get knuckled down and get straight into it as we did.
-No-one predicted that, cos we hit the ground running, we really did.
-And we smashed it.
You'll be shaking our feet, it'll be that good. We're that confident, that confident.
Honest to God, mate, you'll be proud.
For Catherine's hen night, Richard has set his bride a series of challenges.
Apparently we have to pop these through the night,
and in those yellow capsules are dare things that he wants you to do.
Oh, no way!
Absolutely no way am I doing that.
He's sent you a sash.
Ah, that's sweet!
It's not really, it's a bit tacky.
Oh, man, that's exactly what I said I didn't want!
That is so naff. Oh, my God.
That is exactly what I said I didn't want.
A few bottles of bubbly later and Catherine's getting in to the spirit.
I've got my favourite people in a really tacky limo and I loved it.
The bride is busy doing her dares...
..And the groom's got his hands full, too.
The next morning, and there's no rest for the wicked.
The wedding's only six days away, and Richard urgently needs bridesmaids' dresses.
-Oh, Fliss. Oh, Fliss!
We've got a road trip!
Chief bridesmaid Felicity has been issued with instructions.
Not bright colours, definitely.
No yellow, no pink, no bright green.
Not deep purple, or dark purple.
Pale colours would be much better.
Felicity can't help, but luckily Richard's chosen lilac.
They're being met by the other bridesmaids,
Catherine's sister Alison and another Catherine, who's six months pregnant.
Hello, nice to see you.
-Hello, how are you?
-Not too bad.
-Looking to find something lilacy, first choice.
Raised eyebrows, already.
First choice lilac.
-About £100, ideally no more than that.
-I don't think it...
I don't actually like them, to be fair.
That is kind of what we're after, isn't it?
That's not at all what you said!
-Is it not?
-I think you're giving up already.
D'you like it, Richard?
D'you want us to try it?
-Yeah, go on then.
-It's not the colour.
-I know, I know.
We're just having a bump crisis.
I'm just having a crisis, full stop!
Look at his face!
Possibility, definitely. It's definitely an option.
Would it go with whatever you've got planned?
Cos it's not lilac.
It's a really nice dress.
How much is that, out of curiosity?
-Bargain, we can have good shoes!
-No way, really?
You like it even more now!
I like it even more now!
I do think it suits all three of you.
-I think the ruffley bit...
-The lines going down.
I think we'll get the dresses.
-OK. Are we good?
-Yeah, let's go.
Do you have a lot of things to change if we go for purple?
Everything that has colour.
Everything that has some kind of colour to it, so...everything.
I'm a bit worried, because...
one of the only colours Cat said she really didn't want was dark purple.
I'm ready for bed now, I think.
Richard's got three bargain frocks, but now he's got to change the whole colour scheme of the wedding...
with less than a week to go.
It's Richard Harding, getting married on Saturday.
It's a change, a purple, a definite, very bright purple.
It is not a problem changing the colour, though, is it?
Its a very definite purple, now.
MUSIC: "Purple Rain" by Prince
# Purple rain, purple rain... #
Just confirming that the colour is going to be purple.
# Purple rain, purple rain
# Purple rain, purple rain
# Only want to see you bathing in the purple rain. #
They've got a aubergine, but not purple.
What kind of colour is aubergine anyway?
Catherine's invitation finally arrives.
It's her first glimpse of Richard's vision for her big day.
It doesn't feel very special.
What a weird choice of tartans.
It's just a horrible colour.
But why there's silver dots on it
with a green and blue tartan ribbon, I can't understand.
Looks like her man has fallen at the first hurdle.
Will he do any better choosing the wedding menu?
-It's a bit funny, isn't it?
-I quite liked it.
-This is the starter.
A fork and a spoon? It's outside in, isn't it?
I'm not sure about you, but I know I need a spoon!
That's really good.
-That's bangin'. Really tasty.
They might be enjoying the food, but Richard's got something on his mind.
We need something else.
-We need more of an influence on the day.
There needs to be more.
What creates atmosphere?
We need something, it just needs something. I don't know what.
-Look over there, then look out there.
-But it's big and easy.
You're trying to make it spectacular when you don't have to.
But I want to.
I only wanna do this once, and it's got to be big.
The way things are going, it's a proper, proper traditional wedding.
I don't want it to be completely traditional.
Richard needs a big idea.
Maybe it's time for him to get in touch with his own roots?
Worth the extra money.
But he doesn't just want to watch, he wants to have a go.
It always looks complicated, though.
..Two, three, four, five, six, seven.
OK, OK. So...
One, two, three.
It's not as easy as it looks.
C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C.
C, D, E, F, G, A, B...C
Looks like he's getting the hang of it.
But will he be able to impress his bride on the big day?
It's not exactly a ceilidh.
48 hours to go, and the laid-back groom still has plenty to do.
I can't get it off now!
Down there, it should be down here.
Cat's shoes, right.
Richard's on a roll, but he's forgotten something, and it's bugging the bride.
She confides in her friend, Becky.
What's bothering you?
I don't want to be getting ready at Fliss' house the night before the wedding.
Where d'you want to get ready?
I want to go home and get ready from my own house, the night before the wedding.
I should be somewhere where my mum and my sister and my other two bridesmaids are.
Do you want me to give Richard a ring and try to sort it out?
Hi, is that Rich?
-Got a bit of a problem,
just wondering where Cat's staying tomorrow night
so she can get ready and stuff for the wedding? Where will she be?
She's really getting upset.
She will be in the hotel.
Quick thinking, Richard.
'OK. When is she going to know which hotel
'and what time she'll be getting picked up?'
I'll organise that now and have the details over to you
in the next hour or so.
(Ask him if I can have the house?)
She really, really would like to stay in the house, is there are any chance you can sort that out?
'I haven't got time to clear the house of wedding-related stuff.'
He's saying there's loads of wedding-related stuff in the house
and he physically hasn't got time to sort all that out, move it
and go somewhere else and he really needs you to stay in the hotel.
He's gonna sort the arrangements out and let me know where it is.
I want to stay in my house.
I really don't think you're gonna budge him on having the house back.
But that's what I want, I want my bed in my house. I've not had it for three weeks, that's what I want.
It's the only thing that I want.
What d'you want me to do?
MOBILE PHONE RINGS That's Becky again.
She's really, really desperate to be in that house, Rich.
Is there any way at all that you can sort that out?
Becky, if I could, I would.
I genuinely have no time to get everything out the house
and get everything done tomorrow that needs doing, it's just impossible.
Absolutely, genuinely impossible?
'Absolutely, genuinely impossible, there's way too much...'
I really am way too tired to concern over this.
We'll sort it out, OK? Don't worry.
Cat, he's at the end of his tether with stuff.
But I'm not getting anything that I want, so why can't I just have one thing that I really want?
I'm not getting anything else that I want.
You've got to trust him,
-you've got to trust him.
-I'm not going in a hotel.
Then come here and I'll go out.
No, I'm going home.
I'm packing my suitcase and walking home, and I'll stand outside the house until he pisses off out of it!
Phone him up and tell him that I want...the Hilton.
I want the most expensive place, and if he's out of budget, stuff it.
He's not out of budget, but he is almost out of time.
An exhausted Richard goes out to search for a hotel for his bride.
MUSIC: "Tired" by Toby Keith
That's the worst 70 quid I've spent in the last three weeks.
It's the day before the wedding and size six Catherine
is about to come face-to-face with the size 14 dress
that Richard has chosen for her.
-How are you? All right?
-Yes, thank you.
Can I look? Can I look?
That IS lovely.
But will it fit?
Are you all right, Catherine?
-Really, really nice.
The boy done good.
He remembered to have it altered and it fits like a glove.
(Oh, my God!)
SHE SOBS It's really lovely.
It's absolutely out of this world.
There's just nothing that I don't like about it.
-Are you excited?
-Yeah, I'm dead excited!
Just to check, the veil and the headband - is that mine?
-That's all yours.
21 hours to go and Richard's got one last thing to do, get the flowers to the venue.
I'm guessing this is them.
-This is them.
-They look really nice.
-Right, how big is your car? Are you in a Mini?
-I'm in a Fiesta.
Nothing more can go in there, can it?
I wish we'd got these delivered, I'm thinking now.
There's so many.
I don't think I could actually spend another day doing this now.
I'm at the end of my tether almost with...exhaustion.
But has he done enough to please his demanding bride?
It's the morning of the wedding.
How is the bride after her night at the hotel?
A bit nervous. I want to see these dresses, I want to see what on earth yous guys are wearing.
That's what I'm most worried about at the moment.
What does that matter? You look beautiful, that's the main thing.
At Wroxall Abbey, Richard has taken a leaf out of his bride's book
and is making sure everything is perfect.
That's better. I'm happy with that now.
Anybody seen the bride?
-Is that my dad's voice?
-Your dad's here.
-Do you like it?
-Do you want to see what's underneath it?
You look amazing.
I'm so happy my dad's in a kilt.
Really happy. And it is a lovely kilt.
But what will she make of those bridesmaids dresses?
I was surprised at the brightness of your purple, I must say.
But I hope they're not in that shade of purple.
Look at her face.
What do you think?
I just said to my dad I hope they're not all in that shade of purple that you're wearing.
I like the colour...
just n-n-not as a choice for bridesmaids.
I've been having sleepless nights knowing that we were in purple.
Yous look beautiful, yous look absolutely gorgeous.
I think it's worked out better with your dad's tartan.
-Stand in the middle of us.
It does look very Scottish.
-Half an hour to go, mate.
I need the toilet now you've said that.
Let's go. Can we go, can we go? Where's Dad?
God, where are we going?
Dad, I know I've not got amazing eyesight but what's straight ahead of me?
Looks like a...
-It is, isn't it! It is!
Shall we stand?
It is a wonderful day and it is a fairy story come true...
Thoughtful Richard has chosen some personal vows for each of them.
I want to share with you my time and my attention and to bring joy,
strength and imagination to our relationship.
I promise to keep myself open to you,
to let you see through the window of my world into my innermost fears and feelings.
Richard, I promise to respect you as your own person
and to realise that your interests, desires and needs are no less important than my own.
I promise to share with you my time and my attention and to bring joy,
strength and imagination to our relationship.
Do you give your blessings to this marriage of Richard and Catherine
and promise always to support and encourage them?
ALL: We do.
That was marvellous, you may be seated.
Richard and Catherine, have declared before God
and before you that they will live together in Christian marriage.
I pronounce them to be husband and wife in the name of God the Father, Son and Holy spirit.
Whom God has joined together, let no one separate.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
MUSIC: "To You I Belong" by B*Witched
I can't believe we've had a church wedding.
It did mean so much to me.
And I am just really happy, really happy.
It's everything I could have hoped for and a hundred times more.
So far, so good, but the devil's in the detail.
And the flowers match. Oh, my God, it's amazing!
How did you do this? You're a bloke!
Look at this.
Look at the cake.
Oh, my God.
The colours, I'll be honest, when I saw the purple,
the bright purple this morning I thought, "My word, what's he done?"
But it does tie in beautifully with the soft lilacs and purples.
Even the cars had matching ribbons.
Everything. Told you I could do it.
I'm super impressed.
I genuinely didn't think you could do it.
I thought something would be missed.
But so far nothing's missing, everything matches.
MUSIC: "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper
To love, life and laughter.
To Mr and Mrs Harding.
ALL: Mr and Mrs Harding.
Richard, this is for you.
"I thought it would be easy to give you the control,
"for me to not have to worry if the colour schemes would go.
"But it really wasn't easy the day that I moved out
"and I shut you out of my life to live three weeks of doubt.
"It really wasn't easy, not knowing one single thing,
"about that magic moment when I would take your ring.
"But I knew it would be easy for me to say I do,
"and I knew that it would be easy to plan my life with you."
Now it's Richard's turn to showcase his creative efforts.
I'd never have thought he'd pull this off. Definitely never thought he'd have pulled this off.
I think I've got myself a good son-in-law!
Richard, can I just say I'd love to see how you are going to handle the bagpipes now!
I can't believe that he's managed all of this in such short notice. It's amazing.
One more try, you nearly had it!
You nearly had it!
I'll admit I didn't have that much faith in how the boys could pull off a wedding.
I've perhaps been a bit harsh on Phil in the past and I maybe do need to apologise and say I was wrong.
He's maybe not the person I thought he was.
The steel drums and the limbo, it was such a great party atmosphere.
Richard has given me a better wedding
than I could possibly have dreamed of.
Maybe even better than I could have done myself. Maybe!
# Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
# With somebody who loves me
# Oh, I wanna dance with somebody
# I wanna feel the heat
# Yeah, I wanna dance with somebody
# With somebody who loves me. #
