'..are taking control
-'with 12 grand apiece.
-Give it to me!

'..and more outrageous than ever before.'
It's not a joke.
-'Will the glass slipper fit?'
-Oh, my word!
-'Will true love conquer all?'
-Horrid, horrid, horrid.
Oh, my God! It's going to be on a beach.
CHEERS AND WHISTLES
-'Will there be a fairy tale ending?'
-I don't like it.
Is it the right ring?
'Or just a damsel in distress?'
-Wishes do come true.
-Sometimes they don't.
'Tonight, gym-obsessed mummy's boy Lloyd...'
Hopefully, she'll be so excited to see me, she won't realise where we are.
-'..swaps weights for weddings.
-I'm starting to sweat.
-'He plans a far-flung ceremony...'
-This is nuts!
'..for his hairdresser bride-to-be Victoria.'
'While she dreams of an English country garden,
'he's jetting off to the heart of Lala Land.'
This is definitely not a set-up wedding venue.
-'As the tears start to flow...'
-I don't know whether she'll go through with it.
'..and his sentimental idea sends his future in-laws into a spin...'
-I am fuming.
-I physically feel sick.
-I'd be surprised if Vicky will go.
'..will his muscle-mad plan prove too much for his fiancee?'
I mean, I might even change my mind.
'Fitness fanatic Lloyd first met hair stylist Victoria two years ago
'when she came into his tanning salon near Norwich.'
The first time she came in
I was emptying the tokens and filling up the sun bed.
She didn't realise I was in there.
She walked in backwards, shut the door and saw me in there.
-I was like, "Oh!"
-She went, "Ooh! You can stay!"
I thought he was just a really kind, nice, good-looking...
No, you didn't. She thought I was gay.
'Our bronzed beauties were engaged after just six months,
'and 26-year-old Victoria moved into Lloyd's life
'and his family business.'
His mum and dad had gone on holiday and Lloyd was in charge,
so I thought I needed to work my magic.
I just thought we need the whole package.
We need a hairdresser and obviously I thought I'd be the the perfect hairdresser.
Then we can offer everything under one roof.
'Victoria likes the finer things in life,
'but she's not afraid to graft for them.'
I've always had to pay my way.
If we want nice things, we have to work and pay for them.
-I like to work hard. I'm driven.
-She definitely works harder.
My job is a lot more physical than Lloyd's, sitting on his bum.
Lloyd has been brought up... He's been spoilt rotten.
He's been in a close-knit family, never had to want for anything.
'22-year-old Lloyd only moved out from his mum and dad's two years ago.
'Not that they or his two brothers notice,
'as he's home first thing every day.'
What 22-year-old goes to their mum's every morning for breakfast?
I like going round there. My mum likes having me round there.
She can't wait to go, "I'll do that. You sit down."
When we get married, Victoria can do it, then.
No. Not happening. No chance.
'Lloyd may be a mummy's boy, but with Victoria came an added responsibility -
'two-year-old Sienna, Victoria's daughter from another relationship.'
Sienna's my daughter.
She was seven months old when myself and Lloyd met.
When I met Victoria and obviously met Sienna,
everything fell completely into place.
Me, Victoria and Sienna, that is our family.
'But for family man Lloyd, there's one area of his life
'where he really sticks to his guns.'
I go to the gym normally for a minimum of an hour a day,
try and get there six days a week.
Lloyd's love of the gym - where do I start?
And he doesn't just go for, like, 45 minutes.
He goes for two hours now.
'Lloyd has a very personal reason for his love of pumping iron.'
My uncle used to train. He used to be a bodybuilder.
Me and my brothers followed suit. We wanted to be like him, really.
'Sadly, Lloyd's Uncle Nolan passed away in a tragic accident at 34.'
In 2009, he was coming back from... God!
# God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken eyes... #
Lloyd goes to the gym a lot and I have to be a little bit lenient with him
because it's something that he does, not just because it's a hobby and he loves to go.
It's just something that he feels he has to do for his Uncle Nolan.
I know that Lloyd, he has got a big place in his heart for him
and that he does that for him.
It just all runs a little bit deeper than sort of...
people see on the surface.
When someone's in your life and they mean that much to you,
and it's something that they got you into, you just sort of...
-You feel like you owe it to him to carry on.
-Yeah, to make him proud.
If I don't keep it up, I feel like I'm letting him down and that gets to me.
As long as I'm holding on to that, there's still a bit of him here.
'Now this family-loving groom wants to prove
'he can plan the big day for his hard-working bride-to-be
'without Mum and Dad.'
I think that'll make him realise
that sometimes, in life, you have to make decisions for yourself.
If those decisions aren't right, HE's going to get the blame.
I really want this to be an unforgettable wedding.
When I pull it off, everybody's going to be thinking, definitely, "That was awesome!"
'Lloyd might be after unforgettable,
'but Victoria is thinking intimate and classy.'
An ideal wedding venue would be in someone's barn in the back garden,
just like a big garden party.
'But Lloyd has other ideas.
'He's made the brave decision to turn his passion for pushing weights into Victoria's dream day.'
Having training as such a massive part of my life
and having that connection I did with my uncle through training,
I definitely want that to reflect in my wedding.
So I've kind of... I've decided to take the wedding to Muscle Beach in California.
'Yeah, LA's open-air gym, Muscle Beach.'
You couldn't get anything bigger.
When it comes to bodybuilding, that is the Mecca of all places.
If he gets it wrong, I might forget, but I could never forgive him.
'It's time to say goodbye.'
Come on, Daddy.
'The couple won't see or speak to each other until their big day.'
Just get it right - that's all I ask.
-Love you, too. Good luck.
See you soon.
I was not expecting that!
I think the longest we've ever spent apart is a night.
I can't wait to see him again. He's only been gone five minutes.
Hopefully, we'll get through it fine and it'll be perfect.
I know he won't let me down.
'For the next three weeks, Lloyd is moving to the comfort of his mum and dad's house
'half an hour down the road.'
I've just turned 12 again.
Now I am incapable of cooking breakfast, ironing and washing.
'Doting Mum Tracy and Dad Bob are on hand
'to welcome their eldest son back to the family fold.'
-There you go.
What do you mean? What's this? You're not moving back here!
-My room's up there.
-You're not moving back. You left two years ago.
'Victoria will be staying home alone with Sienna.
'But tonight, best friend and bridesmaid Laura is round to offer moral support.'
'Quickly followed by second bridesmaid Jenna,
Has he gone? Ah, bless ya!
'..and mum Steph.'
Don't cry. It's all right.
# It's getting hot in here So get the party goin'... #
'Meanwhile, Lloyd is straight in at the deep end...
'..planning his wedding with best men - childhood friend Billy
'and brother Luke.'
Now we're ready to go, what is it we're doing?
Packing tomorrow and then off to Heathrow.
-Why are we going to Heathrow?
-Then we get on a plane to LA, California.
-Oh, my God!
And we're getting married in California at Muscle Beach.
-That is quality! Oh, my God!
-That's going to be mental.
What...? How many...? Oh, my God!
We've only got three weeks. What thoughts have you got?
I haven't really thought about it.
'That's not a great start.
'Blissfully unaware, Victoria's dreaming of something much closer to home.'
I'd just like a small garden party,
everyone chilling out and having a nice time.
-What if it's raining?
-What if it's raining?
That's the least of my worries when Lloyd's picking my dress!
-You're going to get married in the gym, Vicky!
-That would be...
No, that would just take the piss. I'm sorry, but there's...
I don't... I... That would...
No, seriously. If... No, he wouldn't do that.
'That'll be no to a gym, then. Oh, dear.
'Day one, and all set on a wedding in LA,
'Lloyd and Billy are tackling their first challenge - how to get there.'
I've never even booked a flight by myself before.
'The boys fork out two grand on flights to America
'for seven days of LA wedding planning.
'What do three body-conscious boys do when they land in Los Angeles?
'Head to Muscle Beach, that's what...
'..where LA's buffed and beautiful
'pump iron next to a very public boardwalk.
'And where this groom plans on holding his wedding - in a concrete weightlifting amphitheatre.'
Definitely not a set-up wedding venue.
'Having never seen Muscle Beach or even been to America,
'Lloyd flew to LA to make his wedding plans concrete.
'But not this concrete.'
When I walked up here, it's like, "Oh, shit! She's going to kill me!"
Cos it is far from a wedding venue, isn't it?
Hopefully, she'll be so excited to see me, she won't realise where we are.
'Yeah, hopefully, Victoria won't realise
'she's almost 5,500 miles away from her dream venue.
'Hales Hall in Norfolk is a classic converted English country barn.'
'She's brought Jenna, her mum and 15-year-old sister Courtney
'to enjoy the fresh country air.'
-It's an English country garden!
-It's really lovely.
It's really secluded, private, just what you want.
'This beautiful barn is just 20 minutes away
'from where Victoria has always lived.'
I'm from Norfolk, so I'd really love to get married close to home
and keep it in Norfolk, really.
-Oh, my goodness!
-Oh, my word! It's beautiful.
The thing is, I know that if he came here, he would just love it.
'Having fallen for the barn,
'Victoria is keen to try out walking down the aisle.'
HUMS "HERE COMES THE BRIDE"
'Still, who needs an aisle...
'..when you can have a concrete ramp?'
She's going to have to come round, up here and that's where everything has to be.
I think she'll be pissed until she gets past this bit.
This is the big bit where she's... not going to be happy.
Then she can come to this bit that we can work with.
Keep her facing that way. Forget there's a gym in the background.
She doesn't like ME going to the gym. Getting married in a gym?
'Good luck with that, then, Lloyd!'
This would just be my ideal place.
I know that Lloyd would come here and feel exactly the same.
Perhaps wherever he's going to pick, he'll be thinking on the same lines.
-But that's not here, is it?
He's not even seen this place and I've picked it.
I hope he feels like that when he's picking his place.
She's going to go mental.
'It's up to Billy to reassure a concerned Lloyd
'that Victoria will understand the venue's a tribute to his late Uncle Nolan's love of bodybuilding.'
The idea, you know, Nolan and stuff like that.
This is a part of you and what your life is.
-You're bringing her into your life.
-This is my part of it?
If we pull this off, this'll be the tits.
But if we don't...I'm dead.
'Back at the hotel, Lloyd finally checks he can actually get married at Muscle Beach.'
I don't know if it's even possible, to be honest,
but is there any chance I could hold a wedding there?
Lovely. Thank you.
'So, at the bargain price of £200 for a registrar,
'that's the ceremony sorted.
'It might only be one thing ticked off the list,
'but the boys are in LA, so wedding plans go on hold as they let off steam.'
# Splish, splash I was taking a bath
# All about a Saturday night
# A rub-dub just relaxing in the tub... #
'A couple of days in, and the boys are back in wedding planning mode.
'They hope to find a reception venue grand enough
'to make Victoria forget where she's just got married.'
-Pleased to meet you.
'Annenberg Beach House is a Georgian revival mansion
'built in the 1920s for a Hollywood actress.'
-It looks amazing.
-Got a real nice touch of class.
-It's got wow factor to it.
-The only part that lets it down.
-Let's go outside.
-This area would be all for you and your guests.
This is nuts.
'Oh, yes - guests! Lloyd hasn't thought about them yet.
'He's just weak at the knees over the sea views and grandeur.'
-We need to talk money.
-The house is 1,900.
-Is there anything you can do on the price?
-Nothing at all?
-Not even for three desperate English boys?
-Not even for three desperate English boys!
'So far, Lloyd's spent £2,700 on the boys' flights, their hotel and the concrete wedding venue.
'He's now adding £1,300 for the beach house reception venue,
'making a total of four grand.'
-This is perfect.
-This is awesome!
'Back in Norfolk, a very important woman in Lloyd's life
'is missing him.'
All we know at the moment is they're not here.
But where they are, we don't know.
Lloyd tells me everything, so it's hard for him not to tell me what's going on.
It's unnatural not to talk to your mum while... It is hard.
'Just upstairs, Victoria and Laura are hard at work
'to keep their minds off the wedding.'
They haven't had a night apart, so it's going to be weird.
It feels like we're so close, but we're so far away.
It's really weird and I feel really naughty.
If I drive past the house, I don't look. I think, "What if I see him?"
'No chance of that, love. Lloyd's in LA.
'And finally, he's remembered he's going to need some wedding guests.'
I haven't invited anyone. I don't know who's coming.
I don't know what the flights are going to cost.
I'm working in a budget I don't understand. I don't know what it is.
'Being unsure of his budget won't stop Lloyd
'finding his label-loving bride a designer gown
'in LA's very pricey Beverly Hills.'
# Pretty woman walking down the street
# Pretty woman... #
I'm looking for a...dress.
'That's a good place to start.'
OK, let's see if I can help you.
We're getting married on Muscle Beach.
It's going to be sunny on the beach.
I want something really light, floaty, really...
-I know what to get.
-Glad you do, cos I don't!
I think this is very good. It's gorgeous on.
I'm not a big fan of the shoulders. It'd have to be shoulderless.
-Let me show you one in lace.
-This is very soft.
-Really, really pretty.
-That's really nice.
-Do you want to see it on somebody?
-Yeah, you want to see it on.
-Yeah. You try it on.
-I'm not trying it on.
'Nearly 5,500 miles away, Victoria's on a hunt
'for a dress fit for her fantasy English garden party.'
The dress is really, really important.
The next time that Lloyd sees me, I will be walking down an aisle - hopefully -
in a beautiful dress that he has picked,
and hopefully got it right.
-You all right, ladies? Would you like a look around?
Wow! Look at all this choice! Where do I start?
-What are you going to look for?
-I don't really know.
Definitely not white.
Not too blingy, so I suppose I have got something in mind.
I don't want anything too fussy.
Classy but understated but, like, "Wow!"
-Not much, then(!)
-OK, have you got anything like that?
No. I don't like the top.
This is lovely, a bit different.
That made me feel like I want to cry cos I don't want to wear it!
I just don't like the plain.
He's now got a really big task on his hands.
- Oh, my God! - I'm slightly concerned.
I've got to say.
Yeah, I didn't think she was going to be quite so fussy as this.
'Fussy Victoria can't find one dress she likes,
'but Lloyd has found one - just the one, though.'
-Yeah, mate. That is spot-on.
You know on that dress there, it's got that belt thing with a brooch?
-Do you do anything like that?
-I've just made this even harder!
Why don't I just leave things alone? Why do I make everything har...?
-Wow! That's nice.
-Ah, yeah, boys!
-I'm actually starting to sweat.
'Things are also hotting up back in Norfolk.
'Victoria's finally found a dress she likes.
'It's uncannily similar to the one Lloyd's chosen.'
-< What do you think, Vic?
I'm not thinking "wow" but it's nice.
'Not exactly a glowing endorsement.'
I'm just too fussy, aren't I?
'Dress number two is a figure-hugging gown.'
Oh, it's lovely - for a beach wedding.
'Perfect for a wedding on a beach.'
-It's just not a bride's dress.
-A ball gown.
-'It's a shame she hates it.'
-I don't like anything, to be honest.
- Why don't you try a veil? - I can't believe you asked me to do that!
- Just try one. - No.
Bit old-fashioned, aren't they?
She's not going to sleep tonight.
Now she realises how bad it is for her to pick her own dress,
what hope has the boy got?
'Probably none, as he picked the first dress he saw.
'At least he hasn't picked a veil.'
-Do you have to have a veil?
-'Oh, he has!'
That is amazing.
I do really like the dress and I like the veil. That sets it off.
'He's fallen for the fishtail, but can Lloyd's budget stretch
'to a dress with a Beverly Hills price tag?'
-How much was the dress?
-The dress is 18.
-What can you do?
-Oh, my God!
'Have the boys managed to work their English charm this time?'
1,250 for everything.
Yeah, definitely. I think we'll go for that.
-You'll go for the dress?
-Give me five!
-Can we have a cuddle?
Oh, man! I'm sweating!
'£950 plus a big sweaty hug and that's the dress sorted.'
It hasn't finished yet. She's still got to like it herself.
'It's the end of the first week. Lloyd flies back tomorrow.
'It's time to finally focus on his figures.'
We spent...770 on flights.
950 in English on the dress.
I've got to buy food, a ring, cake, transport, Sienna's dress,
bridesmaids, legal fees, photographer, suits...
It's not going to happen. No way.
'And there's one crucial element of a wedding in America
'that's got a lot more expensive since Lloyd last looked.'
I haven't got enough money for the flights.
Just to get me, Victoria and Sienna out here is going to cost me £3,000.
'Lloyd's working on the assumption that his parents will pay for themselves and his brothers.
'But best man Billy's another matter.'
So I'm only paying for me, Victoria, Sienna and you.
I, basically, haven't got enough money to fly Billy back out here.
Why can't I pay for my own?
I'll work something out when I get back.
-I've not really got a choice, have I? Huh?
This day cannot come quick enough.
I am not good on my own.
'Thousands of miles away in Norfolk, Victoria is at her mum's house
'with younger sister Courtney and stepdad Michael.
'Like Lloyd with Sienna, Michael took on Victoria and older sister Lindsey when he met Victoria's mum.'
-Take yourself back to when we met.
-And Vicky was what?
-18 months old.
Who'd have thought she's the first one of our girls to get married?
-She said she'd never get married.
'It's not long before talk turns to Lloyd's wedding plans.'
-I think he'll do something mad.
-As long as it's not in a gym.
What would you do if he took you abroad?
I would not...be happy. You wouldn't?
Even if it was a sunny beach? I don't like the beach.
'How about Muscle Beach?
'With no control over her own wedding, Victoria's decided to make one decision herself.'
Obviously, I need to ask you something.
I think that I'd like you
to be the one to give me away on my wedding day.
-Yeah, I will.
-Yeah, I will.
-Wherever it is, whatever we do...
-We've got to do it together.
-It's a date, then?
-We've just got to wait for the date to come.
'It's the start of week two, and having arrived at their parents' house in the early hours,
'Lloyd and Luke still haven't revealed their plan to Mum and Dad.'
< Here they come! Here come the wanderers.
'Lloyd's well aware he needs them to stump up a LOT of cash.'
-Well, we've been planning the wedding, haven't we?
And we booked a few bits.
-Venues and things like that.
-Oh, that's good.
-We've done well.
-We're going to California.
Oh, you are joking! That's where we've been... >
-California? For God's sake!
-Couldn't you get any further?
It kind of gets worse. You know we're on a budget?
We can't afford to pay for your flights.
So this is what you got us to talk about!
-You can't afford to pay for our flights?
You were supposed to be the easy ones!
You'd better be able to come.
TRACY LAUGHS I'll be able to work some magic.
'So, that's the family sorted - Lloyd's family, anyway.'
So what about Victoria and her side? Do they know yet?
I don't really want to do it.
'Lloyd might not want to tell Victoria's family,
'but with only nine days to go until his LA wedding, he has to.'
If I had some money in the budget, I'd pay for everyone.
I'm hoping they come, but there's no guarantee that they will.
If they don't come, it ain't going to be much of a wedding.
'Our big strong groom plucks up the courage to face his future in-laws -
'from the safety of Mum and Dad's kitchen.'
I'm going to talk to them over the computer.
Purely for the fact that I ain't got the balls to do it...
in person, just in case I get smacked.
'Victoria's family and bridesmaids haven't heard from Lloyd for a week and a half.
'They've gathered to hear his news.'
He looks scared.
-We are terrified.
I've kind of got something to tell you about the wedding.
-You might need some of these.
-Oh, my God!
-You'll need one of these.
-SIGHING: Oh, God!
Oh, holy crap!
And you might need one of these, I'm afraid.
-Where are we going?
ALL: Oh, my God!
You are having a laugh!
-I wish I was at the moment.
JENNA: I think she'll love it!
She said she didn't want to get married abroad.
-Can we know when?
Oh, my God!
Just need everyone to book some flights.
-You look a bit shocked, Steph.
-It will be amazing, what I've done.
-COURTNEY: It'd better be, Lloyd.
-You won't be going.
-I ain't going to pay 800 quid.
No way. You'll have to do it, Steph. You'll have to give her away.
So, are you going to come?
I'm going to go, OK?
Bye. DOOR SLAMS >
I think it was the comment, "I'm not going. You're going to have to give her away."
And the slamming of the door.
The other night, she's saying that she didn't want to get married abroad.
And he's gone and done that. Laura can't go.
Laura went through school with her. I'm gutted for all of us, not just me.
I just want her to get married. It don't matter about me.
He should have thought about it.
I can't believe what he's done.
-I don't think Vicky'll be pleased.
-Vicky'll be fuming.
Me and Lindsey won't be there. You won't be there to give her away.
One of her best mates can't afford to go. Mum's stuck in the middle!
She'll be fuming. I'm surprised if Vicky'll even go.
It is her big day, Vicky's big day.
I physically feel sick, knowing that we won't be going.
We won't be going. That's all there is to it.
You can go, Steph.
I ain't happy about it at all.
You're meant to be giving her away.
I brought her up since she was 18 months old.
< Her best friend, her sisters aren't going.
She won't do it if Lloyd's family's there and hers isn't. She won't.
'Unaware of why Lloyd's chosen California for the wedding,
'Victoria's family have been floored by the news.'
I'm really worried Vic is going to go mad that no-one's going to be there.
Lindsey's got to find out as yet.
'With three children to look after,
'Victoria's older sister, Lindsey, couldn't be there for Lloyd's call.
'Younger sister Courtney has arrived to break the news.'
We got a Skype call from Lloyd.
Basically, he just said, "I've got a big bombshell to drop onto you."
-And he told us we're going to California.
-Yeah. In America.
-I hate America.
-You are joking.
She will hate it. I won't be going. That's ridiculous.
I don't know whether she'll go through with it.
-I am fuming!
-Best you talk to him about it.
I will talk to him. I am angry, Courtney. I am so cross!
'With a new baby, Lindsey can't afford the flight.
'She knows she's not the only one. Time to put a call in.'
-Hello, are you all right?
I'm a bit shocked, really, to be honest, Lloyd.
-I don't know if you've thought it through enough.
Vicky's going to want her family there and we're not going to be able to go.
Yeah, that definitely wasn't, obviously, the idea.
-That wasn't how it was planned.
-It's so short-notice.
You're not talking about a couple of hundred quid. It is, like, a grand.
We can't all be there.
Mum is devastated.
Is there any money in the budget to stretch to her plane ticket?
Cos I know for a fact that if Mum isn't there,
she won't go through with it.
There's no budget left. If that is just down to money...
-..that means Vic having her mum there and her mum's not going to do nothing,
I'll do it. I'll go bust my balls.
I'll get a loan out and I'll pay it off.
-The whole budget has been spent on...?
-On Victoria's wedding.
-She's missed you so much.
I'm gutted that I'm not going to see her getting married.
I really am gutted.
'Lloyd now faces the very real prospect
'of a wedding without any of Victoria's family.'
-OK. I'll see you later.
It's getting fucking awkward!
This is fucking incredible.
'The following day, and disappointed his decision to take the wedding to LA has upset Victoria's family,
'there is one person Lloyd needs to see to remind him it's worth it.'
Can I have a big cuddle?
I've missed you, darling!
Oh, I missed you so much!
Did you notice I was gone? Yeah?
'That makes everything easier having my little girl back.'
At least that will keep me smiling, even if I am stressed.
I needed that. Definitely needed that.
'And it seems that you can never be too old for some Daddy time,
'as Lloyd catches up with his dad to talk weddings.'
This is so bizarre.
To look at Nolan here. He was 16 there.
He absolutely crazed me for a purple suit.
I bought him a purple suit. Why he wanted a purple suit, I do not know.
'Memories of his dad's brother, Nolan, spurs Lloyd to finally share the reason behind his LA wedding.'
The ceremony is actually going to be...
-..on the boardwalk on Muscle Beach.
Nolan, with his bodybuilding, we wanted to incorporate everything into the wedding.
He would have so loved to have been there. I'm really proud of you.
It's so nice to involve him in that. Yeah, that'll be really special.
He'd be so proud, wouldn't he?
He'd love that. He'd be so proud. That's what you've got to do.
Just because he can't be here, he's still with us.
And he'll always be with us.
You have to talk about him with pride and include him in everything.
And...involve him in everything, just as if he was there.
He'd be so proud.
'It's the start of the third week.
'While Victoria's family and best friends know some of Lloyd's plans, she's in the dark.'
Everyone's being so secretive and being so...keeping their distance.
I don't know why, but I know they're doing it for a reason.
I don't know, I've just had enough now. I'm just fed up with it.
'With Victoria's flight approaching, Lloyd has called in his dad Bob
'to deliver the first part of her invitation.'
Lloyd asked me if I'd do a little favour.
He asked me to bring this.
I'm hoping that's Lloyd.
He's going to jump out the box, but obviously not.
I don't think he'd fit in there, do you?
"To my beautiful wife-to-be, can you please pack this?"
Pack what? I don't understand.
You don't understand?
He's asking you to pack the suitcase.
You and Sienna are being picked up 2.30 tomorrow afternoon.
-See you later.
I don't feel I'm going up the road.
My dream wedding venue is places where we've looked before and...
..a nice English country garden and that's not what I'm going to get.
What the hell is he thinking?
'Next morning, and Victoria has packed a suitcase for every eventuality,
'but she is still unsure about what lies ahead.'
I really haven't got a clue. Something's telling me...
-I don't know why.
With the budget, I just think it can't be anywhere out of this world,
because people wouldn't be able to go.
I didn't want to get married abroad, anyway.
I might even, like...change my mind about going anywhere
if it's somewhere I don't want to go to.
-Are we going to...Wales?
-Are we going to Wales?
I don't know. We're going the wrong way to go to Wales.
I guess...we're heading to London.
I don't like what I see.
I think it's pretty obvious that I'm going to an airport.
Is it too late for me to say to turn round and go back home?
Can I actually do that?
I'm sure I have rights.
'With an early morning flight tomorrow,
'Victoria's first stop is a night in a hotel right beside the runway.'
I hope I'm not getting married here.
He took me from being at home all alone,
to bringing me to this place - all alone. Nice one(!)
'Luckily, she won't be alone for long.
'Having got together £1,000 each,
'Mum Steph and oldest school friend Jenna are waiting for her.'
Boy, am I glad to see you guys here.
< I've got something for you.
-My hands are shaking. SIENNA:
-What is it?
I don't know, darling. It's another surprise.
-What are those, Vic?
LA. Are we going to America?
So is it just you two?
No-one else is coming?
Is this when they all walk through the door?
Well, at least I've got you, hey?
Everybody's been in bits these last four days.
It's been really hard.
I'm gutted that no-one else could be here.
It's meant to be the happiest time ever
and now I feel gutted that no-one else can do it.
CRYING: He's not a horrible person.
He's not a bad person. He loves me and Sienna. You know that.
Until I know that people are OK with him and me I can't...
be happy about it and I shouldn't be feeling like this.
'Facing a wedding without her sisters, stepdad or best friend Laura,
'Victoria must decide whether to even get on the flight.'
I just feel heartbroken. I wouldn't care if we were going there.
It doesn't matter, if everyone was there.
But I can't believe that no-one is coming.
I don't know who he's trying to impress.
Because, to me, this is like... At the moment, I just feel like...
I feel like crap!
My sister's not even here.
I'm sure he won't be going on his own, will he?
# All my life watching America... #
'With four days until the wedding, an anxious Lloyd has arrived back in America.
'Luckily, he was 35,000 feet in the air
'as Victoria was finding out his plan.'
I know Victoria will be at the airport at Heathrow at the moment,
and she'll have got my invite.
It's making me panic just talking about it. I can't get my words out.
With me, family's really important.
Knowing how I'd feel, I don't think it's easy for her
knowing she's going to be coming with not much family.
I'm just hoping that she'll put her new family - me and Sienna - first
and, hopefully, that'll sort of keep her happy.
'After a difficult night, Victoria has made a decision.'
It is about me, Lloyd and Sienna and that's the way it's got to be.
I'll go with it and know that he's trying to do everything he can.
If I'd have known, I wouldn't have packed my welly boots!
Let's go, Sienna.
Michael's still really upset about the situation.
I spoke to my sister last night, Lindsey, and she said, "I'm sorry that I can't be with you,
"but enjoy it and take it for what it is, have a lovely time and look after Mum."
'With her mum already off on an earlier flight,
'Victoria checks in with Sienna and her bridesmaid Jenna.'
I don't know what day the wedding is, even though Jenna's allowed to tell me.
I've said, "I don't want to know."
-Where are you flying to?
-I don't know where I'm flying to!
He's probably wondering if I'm even going to turn up.
He probably thinks that I've gone mental and hit the roof.
'In LA, Lloyd is hitting the shops.
'He's quickly blown the rest of his budget
'on an £850 blinged-up ring for Victoria...'
Thank you ever so much.
'..and £800 on decorations
'to distract Victoria from the concrete.'
-Smashing this shit! I can do two weddings.
-You're a wedding planner!
'Meanwhile, Victoria's landed in LA.
'She's about to get a first glimpse of the wedding dress Lloyd chose,
'a dress she'll be wearing tomorrow, on Muscle Beach.'
I'm very, very nervous.
I want to love the dress so I hope that I do.
'Victoria might not have wanted a wedding abroad,
'but Lloyd has done one thing she approves of.'
That I'm now going to look at a dress in Beverly Hills is, like, absolutely insane.
-Shall we go in?
-Good morning. Come into the back, girls.
'For a girl who struggled to find a dream dress,
'the enormity of Lloyd's task has hit home.'
Looking, I wouldn't know where to start.
Would you like to see your dress? >
I would love to see it! GIGGLES
Moment of truth, girls.
I've got my eyes shut, too.
God, I hope she likes it!
I'm so scared.
One, two, three! >
Oh, my goodness.
There's no reaction.
Oh, my goodness!
-This is the veil.
-She was adamant she wasn't having a veil.
She wouldn't even try one on.
I need a tissue!
I said I didn't want a veil, but that's just beautiful.
He has just picked the most amazing thing ever!
I just want to put it on! I'm so excited!
-I think it's gorgeous.
-It's got a veil.
-You didn't want a veil.
-It looks absolutely gorgeous.
It's been such a big thing to make the choice to come here
and upset a lot of people, but he's just thinking of me.
'Time to see the full effect in the mirror.'
Oh, my goodness!
I didn't think I could cry any more.
The dress is out of this world.
-Are you sure you don't want to know the day you're getting married?
-You don't want to know how long you've got to wait?
I don't care where it is.
I just want to get married.
# I'm sexy and I know it #
'Let's hope she feels the same tomorrow when she spends the most romantic day of her life here!
-This is mental, man.
-Loads of people.
'With just 24 hours until the wedding,
'the boys are back at Muscle Beach to check out their venue.'
Imagine if it was like that, filled like that at the wedding.
Let's just stay positive.
I've been here a few times.
There's never been anything like this.
I suppose we're seeing it for what it should be used for. It's insane.
'Insane, but surely a Mr and Mrs Muscle Beach bodybuilding event
'isn't as insane as getting married here.'
If my uncle was here today, he'd be going absolutely mental.
He'd be right in here with me.
He'd definitely be in his element.
It's exactly the sort of stuff we used to do. He'd love it.
It's why I wanted it here.
But at the same time, it does kind of...
make me sort of shit myself thinking this is going to be a wedding ceremony tomorrow.
'And not just any wedding ceremony.
'Yours. You'd better get cracking.
'It's the morning of the wedding.
'Though the bride doesn't know that yet.'
-Let us in.
-Oh, my goodness!
-Today's the day.
Oh, God! I can't believe it!
-Let's get the bubbles.
-I'm getting married! I can't believe it!
-How do you feel? You're going to see him.
-I can't. I'm so nervous!
Drink your champagne!
SCREAMS I can't believe it!
'With the champagne flowing,
'Victoria gets ready to see her groom.'
-Do I need to look at the back?
-No, there's a gap there.
Oh, for God's sake!
'There's more to worry about than just her hair,
'as she's going to be getting married HERE in two hours!'
It definitely don't look like a wedding ceremony.
It's weird seeing people lying on the venue.
It's going to be an aisle in a minute, where he's sweating.
I'm hoping she's going to be late cos nothing's happening very quick.
'Lloyd's luck might be in, as Victoria's in no kind of hurry.'
No, that's fine. I'm always late.
I need to let him have a little...stew.
'After calls from her family and friends in Norfolk to wish her luck,
'Victoria is focused on one thing.'
It's sad that everyone's not here with me,
but I've had some great support from everyone back home.
So I'm excited, I'm anxious. I just want to see him.
I want to give him the biggest kiss and tell him how much I love him
and how much I want to be Mrs Goble!
'With one hour to go, Muscle Beach is far from looking like a wedding venue.'
They've still got to get on there and get the drapes done.
They obviously know what they're doing. I hope they do!
If it was all finished, I'd love to get changed. Kakking it!
'At least half the wedding guests have arrived - all four of them.
'Lloyd's brother Callum has flown in to join Luke,
'the boys' doting mum and unimpressed bridesmaid Jenna.'
JENNA: It's, um...quite public, isn't it?
And...concrete. I can't see a lot of pretty.
Oh, my God!
'Father of the groom Bob has arrived to chauffeur Victoria and her mum to the wedding.'
Would you like to come this way?
I love convertibles, but I'm not sure I would have picked one because of my hair.
-I just want to get there. This is torture!
-Not long now.
'She's moments away from discovering she's getting married
'exactly where she didn't want - at a gym on a beach.'
Please tell me we're not going to the beach.
Do I look like I want to build a sandcastle?
'Arriving at a very public boardwalk and moments away from seeing Lloyd,
'it's all become a bit too much for Victoria.'
-I'm really faint.
-Are you all right?
Breathe. Take some big breaths.
'Victoria might only have eight guests, but it's not looking like the private affair she dreamed of.'
People have started to sit in the stands.
They obviously like weddings!
It's now five o'clock.
She's half an hour late, so she's doing well.
Oh, my God! I'm dressed in a wedding dress and I'm going to the beach!
It's far from that, isn't it? Bloody hell.
Have a wedding present.
-# She's getting married She's getting married
# Here comes the bride... #
Where are we going?
'After three long weeks, Victoria is about to discover
'whether Lloyd's idea has been worth it.'
Oh! What is this? We're not on Muscle Beach, are we?
What the hell? You are joking me.
I can't believe we're here. Is this a joke?
I'm going to have to laugh cos if not I'm going to cry.
What do you think, Mum?
Good job I love him, isn't it?
Let's do this shit.
'Victoria might not have wanted a beach, let alone a concrete one,
'but now all she's focused on is cementing her relationship with the man she loves.'
I've seen him!
# You feel a little colder
# I'm never gonna let you go
# Never gonna let you down
# The heart has taken control
# There's no-one around... #
-In the presence of God.
-In the presence of God.
-And these witnesses.
-VOICE BREAKING: And these witnesses.
I take you to to be.
-I take you to be.
-My lawfully wedded husband.
-My lawfully wedded husband.
-To nurture you...
-..To nurture you.
-To adore you.
-To adore you.
-And to love you for ever.
And to love you for ever.
Dear ones, by the authority vested in me by the state of California,
I declare you, Lloyd and Victoria, husband and wife.
You may kiss the bride.
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
BILLY: I don't want to say it's a relief it's all over.
It's a nice thing that's just happened, but I'm relieved it's over. I am!
My uncle would have been really proud.
I think he'd have thought this was absolutely insane.
I think that he would be so proud of Lloyd - so, so proud.
If I have to get married in a...
like, whatever it is, I love it.
Because it's Lloyd and I know that it means a lot to him,
and I know this, to him, is absolutely amazing, so...
I can forgive him for that.
Even if it's not my barn... in Norfolk,
and I haven't got anyone here apart from my mum and my best friend.
I've got Lloyd.
I would have liked to have seen her in a church with all the family,
but that ain't what happened and, basically, that's their day.
'Lloyd may have planned the ceremony as a tribute to his uncle,
'but the rest of the day is all about Victoria.'
This is lovely.
This is more like it.
-Ah, thank you.
-If you follow me.
Ah! It's like a PROPER wedding!
-Like a proper wedding!
Did you hear what she said? "Oh, it's like a PROPER wedding."
-It was perfect, really, cos today was for Lloyd.
And this evening was for Vic.
I was kind of bricking it. Especially yesterday.
Being a bodybuilding comp where I was thinking, "Shit! She's going to walk down the aisle here."
Here's to our first evening with the Gobles.
'It's everything that I wouldn't pick'
but nonetheless, it has been absolutely amazing.
-No, he'd never make his own breakfast. I'll still be there for that.
I'm still going to be the mum of the family.
-I feel really sorry for Lloyd and his little helpers.
We've had a lot of angry moments. "Why on Earth would he do that?"
After today, you can see why he's done everything he's done.
Going through this process has changed me.
I hated it along the line and I've made the most awkward decisions.
I fell out with a lot of people and had a lot of stress.
I definitely appreciate it now it's the end.
I'm in control again! LAUGHTER
'Our Muscle Beach boy and his California girl
'have finally tied the knot.'
I'm in shock. I'm completely blown away by everything that you've done.
-It is incredible.
-No. You're incredible.
'Next week, mod music lover Perry drums up a gig-inspired wedding...'
Smell the stale beer.
-'..for his hippy bride, Lauren.'
-I could be Titania from Midsummer Night's Dream.
-'She shuns the limelight.'
-Don't want any showy-offy crap.
-'He wants to be centre-stage.'
-We're the show. People are looking at us.
'Will this music-mad groom be in tune with his bride?
'Or will he be totally off-key?'
Trying to think of the negatives and...really, there isn't any.
