-Has anybody got any confetti?
-Come on, then.
..likes to take control of her wedding.
So what happens when she has no say on her big day?
Oh, they are awful!
We're not doing it.
Don't Tell The Bride is back.
This is ridiculous.
As ever, the grooms are in charge.
I want there to be a donkey at the wedding.
I'm going to look lovely on our big day.
But with £12,000 to spend...
..and just three weeks to throw the wedding of their dreams...
Tell my mother I love her!
..have the boys pushed themselves too far?
Oh, my God!
With more shocking...
and more daredevil weddings than ever before,
will there be a happy ever after?
This is not the thing you get wrong the day before your wedding.
Will true love save the day?
Mum, what is that? Mum, what is that?
Or is it a countdown to disaster?
Three, two, one.
To the tattoo shop on the right-hand side.
..tattoo addict plans an unconventional wedding
at a convention for his bride-to-be Dani...
I don't want to look at any other venue.
..when all she wants is her happily ever after
in the grounds of a beautiful castle.
Will you marry me?
Can Adam impress in front of 10,000 people?
Mate, that's incredible.
If it's not what I want, there will be sparks flying.
Or will it just be a load of old tat?
Why has he done this?! It's not even funny!
Will Adam balls it up...
I'm going to get Dani's name on my left testicle.
..or manage to pull off the perfect day in trying times?
If you get down and depressed about it,
you're not going to get better, really.
And I ain't going nowhere.
Or will Dani kick up a stink at too much ink?
# Na-na-na come on!
# Na-na-na come on! #
This trendy twosome are 29-year-old Adam Butler
and 25-Year-old Danielle Cook from...
I think that me and Adam look good together.
I love the way Adam dresses and I love his beard.
We complement each other.
You look very good today.
-So do you.
Bar manager and live music lover Adam
met council worker Dani less than a year ago
and they soon fell in love.
I realised I was in love with Dani when I came back from Glastonbury.
-We went to...
-Yeah, which was like a local festival.
I said, "Look...I think I'm falling for you."
They may have only been together a few months,
but they've already made their mark on each other.
I think our matching tattoos show how committed we are to each other.
-Do you agree?
-Or how lame we are.
Or how lame we are, yeah.
We've both got one on our leg.
I've got the lock, he's got the key on the owl.
I got my Peter Pan, here...silhouette,
-and he's got his...
Permanent reminders of their relationship might be serious,
but this fun-loving pair are anything but.
# We are young
# We run free
# Keep our teeth nice and clean... #
I'd say our relationship isn't that serious.
-It's serious to, like, a commitment level.
But at the same time we have a lot of fun together, so...
-You're like my best friend as well as my girlfriend.
For Dani, the most important thing
is having all her family at the wedding.
I don't remember mum and dad being together.
I think they split when I was around four,
but I've always... I've always seen my dad.
And a question mark still hangs over whether Dani's dad
will even make it to the big day.
He said he wants to walk me down the aisle,
but it's whether he can get the time off work.
Even if my dad can't get it off work,
he should just put it down that he's not going to work
because he's got to walk his daughter down the aisle, so...
No, he's all right, though.
So Dani is desperately hoping Adam can get her dad to the wedding.
My relationship's better with my mum than it is with my dad.
You know, my mum's the one that's been there for me, so...
And for Dani there's no better time to get married.
The reason why we want to do it so quickly, as well,
is because my mum's got cancer.
They don't know how long she's got -
hopefully it's years -
so she's going to start chemo after the wedding.
You know, I want my mum to see me and Adam get married,
so why not do it now? Especially as we love each other, so why not?
Me and Adam getting married kind of takes the focus off my mum
and kind of puts the focus on us,
so everyone's kind of, like, excited about us,
and everyone's talking about that.
Like, Mum said to me yesterday the first thing she...
The first thing she thought about when she woke up
was the wedding and not, you know, the fact that she was unwell.
So that's good. So, yeah.
Now Adam's hoping to create the perfect day for Dani and her family.
I just want to celebrate everything, like the positive things in life,
not to look at everything that's gone wrong in everyone's lives.
Just let's all just come together as one
and just celebrate something good for once.
And it wouldn't be the same without her mum there,
so, yeah, it's going to mean a lot to everyone, I think.
But letting Adam plan anything, let alone a wedding, is risky.
Around the house I'm quite lazy.
She'll ask me to do something
and I'll say, "Yeah, I'll do it in a minute,"
and then three days later it's still not done.
It's just easier if I just...not take control,
because I don't control you, but just...
Things wouldn't get done otherwise.
Adam wants to surprise Dani and prove that he can knuckle down.
I guess I do want her to see me in a new light
and just not the same person I am around the house,
just lazy and leave everything to the last minute.
But it'll be tough.
Our tattoo-loving groom's plans for the wedding are big,
I am planning the wedding to be at the Great British Tattoo Convention
at the Alexandra Palace in London.
I just think it's going to be the most extravagant,
most amazing wedding that we could possibly do.
Sadly, Dani has other ideas.
In my head, my dream wedding would be at a nice country estate,
but with the ceremony and the evening do being outside.
-Is all this going, yeah?
-Yeah, all of it's going.
It's time for Dani to pack up
and leave Adam in charge of the biggest day of her life.
At least you'll have the whole bed to yourself.
Yeah, I can't wait for that.
The hardest thing that I'll go through in the next few weeks
is not having any contact with Adam.
Just not knowing things, that'll be hardest as well,
because I'm going to have no control whatsoever. It's all up to him.
You're getting upset, come on.
I love you.
-See you later.
# Won't you stay with me?
# Cos you're all I need... #
Saying goodbye then was...hard.
But, yeah, no, I'm up for it. I'm going to do a great job.
I'm going to make her proud.
Across town, Dani is moving back to her family home
where mum Sarah and stepdad Mark are waiting.
-How was it?
-I went because it was horrible.
I haven't really cried today I've cried three times.
Just left Adam for three weeks,
and he's going to be planning my wedding.
That's a bit weird, isn't it?
It's a bit like, you know, that doesn't just happen.
I'm just nervous, and anxious and...
He will do really well. I have total faith in him.
She seems OK at the moment.
I think come later on this evening or bedtime or whenever,
I think it'll hit her, I think, what's going on.
And I think...
all the emotions will start kicking in
and she'll start getting upset.
And I think it is going to get worse over the next couple of weeks.
It's time for Adam to get planning
with the help of best friend and best man Paul.
I've known Adam for about 15 years.
I know him very well, he's my best friend.
Adam's asked me to be the best man.
It's an absolute privilege, an absolute honour.
Firstly, Adam needs to find out
exactly what he's letting himself in for.
So I've never actually been to a tattoo convention,
I don't think Dani's ever been to one either,
but because we've both got a love of tattoos,
I thought, what better place, and different place, to get married?
You can incorporate so much here into a wedding reception.
That's the kind of thing I want for the table, like centrepieces,
because normal weddings have like flowers
and stuff as the centrepiece.
-If we can get something like a skull...
Glitz it up a bit.
Skulls on the table?
Could be a bone of contention.
Still, Adam and Paul are feeling inspired.
I like the few tattoos around for sort of guests to put on as well,
if they want to.
Yeah, transfers on the table for people to put on
if they want to whack on a tattoo, yeah.
-If they want to get involved temporarily.
Yeah, we've got some pretty good ideas so far.
So, skulls and tattoo transfers.
Well, it's a start.
I'm going to embody tattoo, I am tattoo from now on,
and that's how I'm going to move forward
and get this ceremony the best it could possibly be.
Every groom needs a best man they can rely on,
but it turns out on this occasion Adam doesn't have one.
Paul can't make it, the best man can't come.
I'm pretty sure this is a one-off.
I've got no worries about him not being available again, so...
I'll kick his ass if he isn't.
Undeterred, Adam has booked a meeting
with the organiser of the Great British Tattoo Show.
So he's off on a five-hour trek to London to plan his massive wedding
and he's even found a replacement best man for the day.
I've called Nathan and he's going to stand in for Paul.
He'd better not be late because we're on a tight schedule right now.
So I'm going to shoot off to the train station
and hopefully meet Nathan there.
While ambitious Adam is London bound...
Dani's staying very much in Devon.
She's taking Mum and bridesmaids Leanne and Vicky
to see her dream venue, Bovey Castle.
She may like tattoos and hairy men,
but this girl just wants to be a princess on her wedding day.
Can I live here, please?
Yeah, can we move in?
The wedding that I think about in my head,
there's chairs both sides, there's an arch at the bottom
of loads of grass, loads of ribbons and flowers,
a sunny day in a big estate,
or even just in a big garden with marquees and stuff.
Set amongst the rural bliss of Dartmoor National Park,
Bovey Castle has everything Dani wants for her big day.
He's got to get something like this.
-Do you think he will, though?
Every princess needs to get married in a castle.
Mate, I didn't expect it to look like this.
After a five-hour journey from Torquay,
Adam and stand-in best man Nathan
have arrived at Alexandra Palace in North London.
-This is it, this is the one.
-Mate, this is it.
And they're impressed.
This is my good friend Nathan.
I cannot think of a better person to come up with me today,
-so it's pleasure to come up here with you.
-Thank you for all your work today.
They're here to see the venue for Britain's biggest tattoo convention,
where people with tattoos go to look at other people with tattoos
and go, "Oh, nice tattoos."
Adam's vision is to plan a wedding Dani will never forget.
But with just three weeks until the convention,
and the event already scheduled,
he'll have to turn on the charm to book a slot.
Cue convention organiser Shelly Bond.
Time to act friendly.
-Yes, that's me.
-Hi, I'm Adam.
Hi, Adam, it's really good to meet you.
Ooh, not TOO friendly.
-Hi, Shelly, I'm Nathan.
-And you are the best man?
-Well, I'm sort of...
No, I'm the reserve. I'm the stand in.
I've had this idea of doing my wedding
at the Great British Tattoo Show.
I need to know what your expectations are
because we're obviously just two and a half weeks out of...
-Yeah, I can imagine.
I'd love to do it on the catwalk.
We run a very, very tight schedule on the catwalk.
Yeah, yeah, I can imagine.
There's a lot of entertainment from burlesque to live music.
-We are so limited on time.
-It's going to be...
-I don't know, I...
-..touch and go.
Whilst Adam plans his indoor convention wedding
in front of 10,000 total strangers...
..Dani is off in search of the perfect spot
for her intimate outdoor wedding.
Hope you've got a licence!
Will you look where you're going please, young man?
Oh, now, this is nice.
Literally look back there, you can have chairs either side...
a white carpet. Stand here.
Will you marry me?
This bit here, with all the hedges either side,
it's like your own private little runway, isn't it?
Perfect day for a princess.
-He better do it.
-I am a princess.
This venue is amazing.
This is what I think I pictured with flowers, tress, lights -
it's really romantic.
Whether Adam would pick something like this,
I would hope he would,
but I can imagine him not picking something like this.
Now it clarifies what you do want.
Yeah, I want this.
She wants a castle...
and he's trying to book a palace, of sorts.
Do you have another option if this isn't possible?
That'll be a no, then.
-If you can give me 24 hours...
..I can come back with a definite yes or a no.
We plan events on this scale up to 18 months in advance,
so moving something around with two weeks to go
is going to be incredibly difficult for us to do.
Safe journey back to Torquay.
-Thank you so much.
-You're welcome, no problem.
Fingers crossed, buddy.
To the bar.
His ceremony may be hanging in the balance.
Still, Adam's taking the time, his beer and his stand-by best man
to see a potential reception room.
This is the only room that's available,
it's called the Londesborough Room.
It can host 130 people for a sit-down meal.
-You could have your top table over there.
For what I want to do this is, like, a perfect venue.
-Is it the venue for you?
-It's the venue for me, definitely.
-If I'm being honest...
-I didn't expect that.
I don't want to look at any other venue.
The ceremony's going to happen here - it's going to happen here -
so the reception may as well happen here.
It's not even booked yet and he has no plan B.
As a whole, for the venue, for what they want to offer us,
I don't think we're going to beat it.
Right, so what are we going to do next?
I don't know. Last time I went out with you I ended up on a beach, so...
Well, this time you might end up in...
Or the Thames.
Would you get any back?
While Adam gets drunk with the best man who isn't even his best man,
Dani is spending some quality time with mum Sarah,
whose health is never far from their thoughts.
So how are you feeling, Mum?
How am I feeling? I'm feeling excited.
I think that's what we need at the moment, a good...a good celebration.
Good knees up.
It would be nice to look back at the photos
and see me with a head of hair.
It's going to be lovely day.
-Yeah, it is going to be an amazing, amazing day.
Fun and just...great.
It's going to be emotional as well, I think, because I will cry -
I know I'll cry.
Happy tears, though.
-It's all happy tears.
Just - it would be nice to celebrate and then...
-It's something to...
Well, no, you haven't got to be serious. It's not...
Well, yeah, it is serious, but if you dwell on it too much -
you've got to go into it positive.
Oh, yes, of course you are. It's all about positive thoughts, isn't it?
Because otherwise, if you get down and depressed about it
you're not going to get better, really.
And I don't want down and depressed,
-I want positive thinking and everybody to be...
You want to live and look to the future, you've got to do it.
-And I ain't going nowhere.
I love you!
I love you too, Mum.
The next day, and Adam's back in Torquay
with no idea about whether he can get married
at the tattoo convention.
On the plus side, best man Paul's rocked up.
-What up, boy?
-All right, mate?
-How's it going?
So what happened the other day, then?
Mate, what happened with you the other day?
That's fair. No, totally fair, I'm sorry I couldn't be there
but...yeah, I'm here now, so...
I met with Shelly,
who's the organiser of the Great British Tattoo Show.
Hopefully I should get a phone call today to give me the yes or no.
-Today would be...
-Well, that's great news.
If it's a no then we're going to have to bang our heads together
and think of something of pretty quick.
We could just disappear to Thailand.
Well, that's one solution.
With wedding plans on hold for now,
the boys turn their attention to the hen night.
She's probably going to expect, like, a big night out or something,
like a VIP area somewhere.
So I'd rather send her, like, go-karting, or...
What about, like, some sort of...outfitting?
We could send them out in morph suits.
Send them out in morph suits, that would be a good one.
Yeah, I like that.
That's it, like, the stag, everyone has to go in women's clothes
-and all the women go out in...
-A kind of reverse thing.
Genius. A cross-dressing stag and hen do.
But before the boys can plan their outfits, there's a call.
Oh, I think this is Shelly.
Really? That's amazing.
That's the best possible news you could have given me.
-Mate, it's going ahead!
Adam has agreed to pay £2,300
to have his wedding and reception at Alexandra Palace,
but there's a catch.
We've got a 20-minute slot, five o'clock on the main stage
at the Great British Tattoo Show,
but that 20 minutes incorporates the service,
the set up and take down of any props that we use...
-Like, if she's late it could jeopardise the service.
Oh, don't worry, boys, it's only a five hour wedding-day drive
from Torquay to London. What could possibly go wrong(?)
With his tattoo wedding green-lit,
it's time Adam broke the news to his mum and nan.
Trouble is, neither of them like tattoos very much.
In just under three weeks' time
I'm getting married at the Alexandra Palace in London...
Oh, my God.
-..at the Great British Tattoo Show...
-Oh, my God!
..on the main stage.
Well, you won't stand out from the crowd at all, will you?
So what do you make of the whole...
it being at the Alexandra Palace at a tattoo convention?
Well, I haven't had time to think about it, really.
I was going to say, give us a sec... Sink in...
Tattoo convention, I can't think of anything worse,
but it's very you.
Oh, I hate tattoos.
And this! Pff.
I don't mind your beard, it's just it's a bit wide.
You've got a thin face.
-But that's only our opinion, darling.
Still love you. Love you dearly.
I know whatever you do, I will be so proud of you.
-I'm bubbling up now.
So, yeah, you're welling up.
I am, just thinking about it.
I wasn't sure how they were going to take it
because knowing they're both anti tattoo,
but, yeah, they took it really well.
They're over the moon for me, happy for me, so, yeah.
All in all it didn't go as bad as I thought it was going to go,
so, yeah, I'm happy.
I'm so pleased for him. I know they'll both be so happy.
I know they will.
I just want to make everyone proud now.
Adam has bought a present for Dani for her hen do,
but as he's on his own again today he has to drop it off himself.
Oh! Oh, God.
"Danielle, have a wonderful day on your hen do,
"your outfits for the day are in the box."
-Oh, my God!
"These must be worn or you are not allowed on the bus."
Oh, my... I HATE fancy dress!
-How do you know? It might be just...
-It will be!
-Oh, my God.
Why has he done this?! It's not even funny!
I'm going to kill him.
What a git.
I've just been looking forward to telling my friends
what they're going to have to wear on their hen do.
-They've all bought new dresses!
I bought a new dress.
Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
-Oh, I do love him, the little
Adam's halfway through week two of wedding planning,
and best man Paul's been in touch with some upsetting news.
I found out today that Paul is working all next week,
including next weekend, which is the weekend I get married.
So as far as Paul's going, I think that's it,
we've seen the last of him.
I'm not going to lie, I am really let down.
He's been my best mate for 16 years
and I'm not even getting a response from him at the moment
so, yeah, I'm quite let down by him.
Sadly, with troubles of his own, there's no way Paul can be best man.
In the back of my mind to replace Paul,
I think there's only one person.
He stepped in last time to help me, so I'm going to ask Nathan.
He's been reliable, he's always responded to messages and stuff,
so hopefully he won't let me down when I ask him.
The most important thing is to give Dani the best possible wedding
I can give her, so that's what I'm focusing on that.
Anything that's, like, gone wrong so far
is at the back of my mind for now.
It's the day of the hen do, and as per Adam's instructions,
Dani and her friends are wearing their morph suits.
Agh! Oh, have my eyelashes come off?
The girls are ready to go, but there's no sign of the bus.
It is...half 12, the bus should be here any minute.
-Where are we going to go?
-I have no idea where we are going.
We all need a drink.
All dressed in Morph suits and tutus.
After amusing themselves for a while...
..the hens are getting the hump.
Bridesmaid Leanne puts in a call to Adam.
-Hi, Adam, it's Leanne.
-Hiya. We're just wondering what's happening,
because we're all stood here waiting. Is the bus...coming?
-Well, what's going on?
We're all stood here kind of waiting.
I'm going to sort it now. I was meant to do it this morning,
but I totally forgot because I was drunk.
He was so drunk last night he forgot,
-so he's going to sort it now.
You'd better hurry up cos...
What do you mean he's going to sort it now?!
-Adam and alcohol do not mix...
-So this is going to be interesting.
I'm falling down.
Eventually transport arrives to whisk the girls off
to their secret hen do location.
MUSIC: "Little Green Bag" by The George Baker Selection
It's also the day of the stag do
and the lads have let their hair down.
We are ladies.
Oh, sorry, ladies.
# Lookin' back on the track
# For a little green bag... #
Down it, down it, down it.
Whilst Adam's day has started at quite a pace...
..Dani's day is also racing ahead.
I'm a little bit nervous about driving this go-kart
because it goes 40mph...
but it'll be fun.
DANCE MUSIC PLAYS
I wasn't expecting this,
but he knows that I'm quite a fun person, so I think he did well.
For the rest of the day we would like...
-Food, fun, drink.
Not sure your man would be too happy about that, Dani.
MUSIC: "Monkey Wrench" by Foo Fighters
My stag do is going really well so far.
They've embraced it, they've all got dressed up.
I'm wearing Dani's playsuit, her leather gilet,
her handbag and her wig so...
..she knows what she's marrying into.
I'm not sure she does.
After a few more drinks, the groom has a magnificent idea.
To the tattoo shop on the right-hand side - let's go!
Drinking and tattoos? This could get messy.
Basically, we've come along today
to just get just a little smiley face on our bum cheeks.
Get in there.
How do they get to go go-karting and I get a tattoo on my asshole?
Are you ready?
It's been a lad's day, we've gone and done stuff that I want,
like drinking and tattooing,
so what more could I ask for?
A few of the lads have decided to take things further
and get their tackle tattooed,
and it's given Adam an idea that's quite literally nuts.
I'm going to get Dani's name on my left testicle.
Yeah, are you sure?
Yeah, I am. I'm 100% sure.
If she can't see that I'm committed to her fully
by getting her name tattooed on my testicle
then I don't know what else I have to do.
OK. Who's Dani?
-Your fiancee, cool.
-Hold it tight.
-Let's hope you don't get a divorce.
It hurts a lot less than I'd ever imagined.
-We should do this more often.
Surely there's not the space.
Come on, let's go, let's carry on.
I'm still standing, which I'm quite surprised by,
so it's been the best stag do I could have possibly imagined.
Across town, Dani's letting it all hang out.
Are you having a good night?
I'm having a good night.
that's my boyfriend. That's Adam's name.
has been very, very good.
It's the start of the last week
and Adam has come up with a musical idea for the wedding
that he hopes will hit all the right notes.
A modern day love song of our lives.
I've organised one of our favourite bands to, like,
hold the actual service and, like, sing our vows to us.
He has helped write a song
that tells the story of how he and Dani fell in love.
I was wondering, like, how are you going to, like,
start the sort of ceremony?
It's got the traditional side of like a normal service,
but it's done in song, rapping and beat-boxing, so...
It will be entertaining for everyone at the convention as well.
I look forward to hearing it on the big day.
And, for Adam, the wedding is also a chance to tell the world
how he feels about Dani.
"You have changed my world for the better.
"You're my best mate and my soul mate.
"I promise to love you, cherish you with all my heart
"in sickness and in health, be it in our own or our nearest and dearest.
"I'll be there by your side through everything."
I think I'll stumble halfway through,
especially when I get to the sickness and health bit,
I think that's when I'm going to choke a bit.
It's time to find some bridesmaid dresses,
but now replacement best man Nathan has gone walkabout,
so Adam's called another mate, Charlie,
to stand in for his stand-in. Keep up.
So on the bridesmaid dresses I want to stay around the 60-80 mark.
I don't really want to go above that.
If I can get them for cheaper even better.
Whatever I see first, I'll go, "That's all right, pick that."
I'm thinking like, quite longish, maybe.
Like fitted and...long.
Fitted and long!
The boys soon realise they may struggle with their limited budget.
Yeah, not that one. They're £225.
-How much is it?
Everything is so expensive.
Luckily Adam has seen a dress that is affordable, whether or not
it's likeable is another matter.
Those are horrible, aren't they?
I know but like that's the kind of thing... Kind of disgusting.
It's the only one that looks like a bridesmaid would wear it.
-I think that's the one.
-It's not a great green, is it?
It's awful, but I think I've done well.
They're not going to like it, but who cares?
Like it or not, he spends £204 on three bridesmaid dresses.
-Cheers, thank you.
-They are a nice colour.
-Yeah. Thanks for your help. Cheers, thank you.
Dani is taking her friends to try on wedding dresses
and she knows exactly what she wants.
My perfect dress would be a princess dress,
so tight in corset and then big underskirt and very pouffee,
not figure hugging at all.
Hello, Dani, yeah.
Have a sit down, we've got a little bench here for you all.
I'll just pull a few out maybe, or if you want to have a look
by all means. Don't be afraid to touch the dresses.
There's one here on the front that's really pretty.
-Ah! That is nice.
-That is nice.
-Do you want to come through?
-Wow, that was quick.
Meanwhile, Adam and Charlie are also looking for the perfect dress.
Let's go pick a wedding dress.
And our groom knows that everything is riding on his choice.
-Look at them all.
-Oh, look, there's one on sale - £299.
-I've just seen that.
-You saw it straightaway. That's the one.
The dress is the most important thing.
If I mess this up then there may not be a wedding so.
Plus, that tattoo will have been for nothing.
Mate, I'm really nervous now.
There's none that just go, phew. I genuinely feel sick, I really do.
Just breathe deep, you'll be fine.
After 20 minutes of sweating, the boys finally ask for help.
So tell the lady what you want and she'll be able to help.
I've gone blank. I don't even know what I want now.
You want a wedding dress and preferably a pouffee princess one.
I don't think I've ever been this nervous about anything,
this is like make-or-break really.
-It's pretty nice, isn't it?
-That is really nice.
Yeah, I like it. We'll put that in the definite maybe.
-I love that one.
-I don't think it's very nice.
-It's not jumping out at me, for sure.
-Hasn't got that wow factor.
-Hasn't got that wow.
-I don't like it. You picked that.
-I did, yes.
-Are you nearly ready, Danielle?
Come on, we're excited.
Dani's had no such trouble finding her dream dress.
-What do you think?
-Oh, that is beautiful.
I don't have any words.
Oh, my God.
Oh, I want this dress!
I love the fact there's this on top, which has got the detail in it,
and then there's the underskirt underneath,
which has got the detail as well.
Yes. That's what you was looking for.
It makes me feel like a princess...it does.
It's still quite princessy.
Yeah, and I don't want princessy though.
It is nice. I didn't think I'd like straps on a dress,
but I quite like the straps on that.
-I think that one is the best one.
-It is nice. I really like it.
Adam likes the figure-hugging satin and silk dress with straps.
-I want it for you, if that makes...
-It's lush, isn't it?
And Dani likes the strapless princess dress with a
sweetheart neckline and corset.
-I'm going to have to be a fit bride.
-You're going to be a well fit bride.
When I get to the bottom I can go like this, "hello!"
She looks really nice. The dress is perfect for her.
Dani's chosen gown is everything she dreamed of, but she now has
mixed emotions about the day.
It's a massive tease to be coming here and trying on dresses,
finding this amazing dress,
and then to go away and this is not going to be the dress that I'm wearing.
It's beautiful, but I just hope he gets her something like that.
And trying on the perfect dress has made Dani even more determined
to get what she wants.
If it's not what I want there will be sparks flying.
I'm happy with it. I think she's going to look stunning in it.
Meanwhile, Adam has come to a decision.
He's picked a figure-hugging jewel-encrusted dress
with straps for £1,124.
-I'm happy with how it's gone.
I'd say that's one of the hardest things I've ever had to do.
Quite stressful. I didn't think it was going to be as hard as that.
Hopefully she will be pleased because that's the one who matters.
One down, three to go. It's time for Adam to show the bridesmaids the dresses he's chosen for them.
I think the one person out the three of them that's going to kick off about it might be Leanne,
but I'm standing strong. This is what I've decided to pick, so tough.
My heart is racing. I feel a bit sick.
There is no negotiating. These are the dresses they are wearing,
no matter what they say...or don't come.
I actually feel a little bit sick.
At the end of the day it's Danielle's day, so she's the one that matters.
I did what I could with what I had, so...
It's just the colour. I don't mind the dress,
it's just green is not very weddingy, is it?
I'll try it on first...before I hate it.
I was expecting that reaction from her, so I'm not overly surprised.
Yeah, not happy.
Adam's earlier indifference to the bridesmaid's dresses could be
coming back to haunt him.
It looks better on than it did up there.
-I really, really like the colour as well.
-I think they look nice.
It's a bit long.
It could be diamond encrusted, you'd still find something wrong.
You done all right, Adam.
You had no choice. You're wearing it whether you liked it or not.
She's wearing it, so that's the main thing.
If I had the choice I wouldn't wear it.
I wouldn't choose that dress. If it was any greener I think I would have cried.
The groom is on a mission.
When Dani told her dad she was getting married, he wasn't
sure if he could make it to the wedding,
so Adam is hoping he's come to a decision.
If Dani's dad wasn't involved, for whatever reason, I think she'd
be heartbroken. Hi, Les.
-Good to see you.
He knows that Dani desperately wants her dad to walk her down the aisle.
It's going to be pretty big, we're part of the actual show now,
-we're getting married on the main stage.
-Oh, wow, Oh, wow.
So she's going to walk through the hall on to the catwalk.
There's still a lot to do, but if it all comes off then it's going to be incredible.
-I'm sure it will.
I've come here to ask you quite a big question.
I know it would mean the world to Dani
if you were there on the day to walk her down the aisle.
I know it's short notice.
-Just a little bit short.
-It's a big ask for everybody.
Yeah, I know that's the thing, it is a big ask.
-It's not like a little do just down the road, is it?
-It would be a pleasure.
-Yeah, really would be a pleasure yes.
I feel over the moon at the moment,
like that was the best possible result I could have got.
-I've got to do a speech, have I?
-Yeah, you're going to have to do a speech,
-I have to do one as well.
-I have the shortest of the lot, like.
I always knew she was going to get married.
She's a pretty girl and finding Adam I think is just the icing on the cake.
-See you in a bit.
-See you around.
Today I've ticked a massive box.
Les has said he's going to walk Dani down the aisle, it's a huge coup,
so I'm ready to move on with the rest of it and tick the rest of the boxes
and get it all sorted now.
It's the day before the wedding and Dani is finally about to see
the dress Adam has chosen for her.
My dress has to be perfect
because tomorrow I'll be getting married,
and I will be centre of attention.
I'm a little bit scared actually.
While her mum and bridesmaids wait patiently,
she gets a sneak preview of Adam's choice.
If I hate it that much and I don't feel comfortable in it whatsoever
I won't be wearing it.
Dani wanted a strapless princess dress,
but Adam has chosen a figure-hugging satin dress with straps.
It's not what I would have chosen.
Straps. See, I never wanted straps.
I can't believe that's what I'm going to wear tomorrow.
I just need to get it on now, I think.
For this bride, other than her family being there,
the dress is the most important thing.
Oh, it's beautiful.
Oh, my God, I love it.
-Does it look nice on me?
-Don't cry, you idiots.
-No, you look amazing.
It's a completely different dress to what I ever would expect.
You said you want a princess dress,
but that's a dress a princess would wear.
-Yeah, like a real princess.
-Like a real princess.
-But what will she think?
I like it.
-Do you love it?
-Such a relief.
I like the straps, I never thought I'd have straps.
The straps make the dress because they're so sparkly.
I just think it looks amazing with my tattoos as well.
He has picked something that I wouldn't normally choose,
so he's lucky that I like it because I wouldn't have necessarily
picked something that was so figure hugging. But, no, he's done well.
As soon as she said she likes it, ooh, that's when the emotions came,
that's what I needed to hear.
-He knew more what looks good on her than she did.
I was really worried about the dress
cos that is the most important thing, but he's done really well.
I just want to see him now. As long as he's still got his beard.
He has to have a beard.
Just put your head up for me a bit.
Don't touch the beard, barber.
Phew. It's the final few hours before the wedding and Adam
is frantically collecting props and decorations.
Oh, no this will be perfect.
-I'll just take the lot.
-Yes, of course.
That's £120 on mock tattoo sleeves,
another £50 on skulls for the centrepieces.
That might be quite cool to go near the wedding cake.
And a whopping £1,200
on giant props for the reception room,
including a huge pair of lips...
-..and a massive skull.
It's the morning of the wedding and the bridal party have
descended on Dani's mum's house.
I couldn't sleep last night.
You know when you wake up really early before the alarm?
I've got a tight chest, so I think I am really nervous,
and it's only 20 past nine.
After three long weeks of anticipation, Dani gets her
first surprise of the day, those green bridesmaid dresses.
-It's green. Why green though?
Because I don't like green, that's why.
Yeah, but you look nice in green. Because you've got blonde hair.
It looks nice though.
# Let's get married, let's get married... #
I'm happy that she likes them.
Considering the big fuss that I kicked off, I think with a few
alterations, yeah, I'll wear it.
Meanwhile, Adam and best man Nathan have arrived at Ally Pally
and it's the first time they'll see where the ceremony is taking place.
Oh, my God.
There will literally be thousands of people watching.
-Can't wait, this is going to be amazing.
-It's going to be great.
Thank you so much. I'm buzzing now. This is going to be so good.
I think she's going to be blown away. She's going to love it
but we're find out later, I suppose. It's not your normal wedding for a start.
We're at a tattoo convention, but I've also got thousands
of guests that I don't even know, just people who are here
for the convention who are going to witness our wedding.
Dani's mum's ill-health means this wedding day is the fulfilment
of a dream for Dani's step-dad Mark.
-You look absolutely stunning.
We told all the kids what her wishes are,
and Danielle's the first to bring one of her wishes true.
But he has mixed feelings about the day.
She's just like a daughter to me.
She did ask me to walk her down the aisle
if her dad didn't turn up, if her dad couldn't get the time off.
But it's every dad's prerogative, isn't it,
to walk his daughter down the aisle?
My day will come soon.
Made me cry now.
Me and your mum bought you a little something to go
through your big day.
Oh, this is amazing.
-This is what I want. I want this.
-Yes, thank you.
You're very welcome.
Back in London, Adam is working hard to transform the reception room
into his perfect wedding venue.
So these are the props, brilliant. Come on in.
You've done well.
So we're going to set up like a sort of Sailor Jerry-style thing
with the anchors and, like, the netting and that.
-Here we go.
Mate, that's incredible.
So this is what I've gone for.
Skulls and roses.
I think it's not to everyone's taste,
so I think a lot of people will be a bit reserved.
But I think, at the end of the day, they're here for us.
MUSIC: "London Calling" by The Clash
Adam has arranged a less-than-romantic minibus
to pick up Dani.
Have you got my veil?
Still, at least she'll have some legroom
when she's sat in it for five hours,
though she doesn't know that yet.
-Where are we going?
It feels like we're all going on a little joy ride somewhere.
# Here comes the bride
# All dressed in white... #
But, as the weather turns, they're already battling against the clock.
I've no idea where we're going.
All I know is we've been in the van for two hours.
Look at this traffic.
# London calling to the faraway towns... #
In London, the tattoo convention is in full swing
and the, er...10,000 wedding guests are having a great time.
Adam only has a 20-minute window
to use the stage for his wedding ceremony,
so Dani absolutely CANNOT be late.
The first real wedding guests are Adam's mum and sister
and they're more than a little bemused by the surroundings.
It is a strange choice for a wedding.
Tattoos are my pet hate...
but I have to cope with them all over people, don't I?
I hate them!
I think it's a bit barmy, bit surreal.
A tattoo convention wedding, it could be interesting.
It could either go really well or it could go really wrong,
so it's all on Adam now.
Suited and booted, Adam is ready to greet his guests.
-How are you? You all right?
-Good, happy wedding day.
-Thank you very much.
-You look awesome.
Oh, Adam, he looks amazing...
even with the tattoos.
As that five o'clock deadline looms closer,
the pressure is starting to get to Adam.
-You all right, mate? It'll be all right.
-I need some water.
-Water? I can get you some water.
-I'd love some water.
-You sure you don't want a beer?
-No, just the water.
-How about a shot?
-Are we there yet?
It's taken the bridal party most of the day to travel 180 miles.
They now have only an hour
to fight their way through the busy London traffic.
It's four o'clock and we've been in the minibus for five hours.
LAUGHTER AND CHATTER Five and a half.
Five and a half hours.
And everyone's doing my head in.
But Dani's day is about to get a whole lot better.
Her dad has come to surprise her and walk her down the aisle.
I'm really nervous, you know.
Nervous for myself, and I'm really nervous for Danielle.
I know, um, it's a super-big day for her.
It makes me so proud, really. It really, really does.
With the clock ticking,
another stop-off is the last thing they need,
but it's great news.
Oh, there's my dad!
-Have you been waiting long?
-Are we getting in?
-Oh, Jesus Christ.
-You look gorgeous.
-Adam done well.
-He did do well, didn't he?
-Yeah, yeah, really, really good.
Adam spent £600 on a classic car to drive Dani the last few miles.
It's clearly a lovely motor.
Let's just hope it's a fast one.
The chairs are out, the red carpet's out.
We've got probably about 20 minutes now,
15 minutes till it's all under way.
The bridesmaids arrive in the nick of time, but where's Dani?
Where are we?
I literally haven't got a clue, I've no idea.
All I know is that we're in London.
We could be North, South, East or West.
With her favourite band ready, and the guests seated,
all this wedding needs is a bride.
How are you feeling?
It is hot.
Dani is well overdue at the altar.
Still, she doesn't know that, so she's having a lovely time.
I'm so excited. I still don't really know what's going on,
but I ain't complaining.
It's so weird.
And it's about to get weirder.
But Dani has just one thing on her mind...
I'm so excited.
I can see Adam.
Why's there so many people?
After three weeks of planning, two best men,
and a lot of stress,
the moment is finally here
for Adam to see his bride.
-I've missed you.
Adam's ambitious wedding plans
have tested him to the limit,
but his vision of an unforgettable wedding
is finally a reality.
So, hello, everybody, and welcome to this very special occasion
at the Alexandra Palace here in London.
So this wedding ceremony
is going to be conducted in the form of a rap story.
What have you done?
# This is a story with a start and a middle
# With a little bit of beat-box A little bit of fiddle
# It's not the kind of tale you can read in a book
# It's the true-love story of the Butler and the Cook... #
WEDDING SONG CHORUS
# I'll always turn to you for help and love you till the end
# This true-love story brings us to now
# At the Ally Pally in London Town
# The Butler turned to the Cook
# And he said... #
You've come into my life and you've made it better,
I will cherish you and love you,
through sickness and health,
be it our own, or our loved ones.
I promise to love you forever.
I love you.
Danielle, do you have anything to say to Adam?
All I want to say is that I love you too,
and that you've done absolutely amazing.
# Then, ladies and gentlemen, girls and boys
# It brings me an enormous amount of joy
# As this humble young busker
# Mr and Mrs Adam Butler! #
Erm...what about the rings?
Should have known!
Instead of rings, they're having each other's initials tattooed.
'The fact Adam pulled it off is amazing.'
You're never going to forget it. Who gets married here?
It was amazing. It was the best thing ever. Adam did really, really well.
Dani's obviously really impressed with it
and Adam has really sort of pulled it off.
He's got far bigger balls than I've got...
Yeah, he did a better job than you would.
..and I've seen his balls.
And while Adam gets his done,
Dani and her bridesmaids check out the reception room,
complete with half-naked women
and tattoo legend Zombie Boy, obviously.
Oh, my God. Oh, he has done really well, bless him.
Look at the centrepieces, the little skull.
Non-piercing, clip-on jewellery!
"Adam and Danielle, true love." Oh!
Look at the bride and groom.
Skeletons, brilliant. Are you impressed?
I'm impressed. He's done a good job.
I think he's done absolutely fantastic.
-You all right, darling?
But as everyone takes their seats,
Adam goes missing.
-Are you all right?
-No, I don't feel great.
Everything has just caught up with me, the last few weeks,
it's just all caught up with me now.
-I feel a bit emotional.
-I love you so much.
-I love you too.
Are you OK? You've done so well.
I just feel really tired now, I'm really tired.
-Take me to the table.
-Take you to the bedroom?
No, that's later. Consummate it later, come on.
I don't know how you've done this in three weeks.
Like, organised to get married at the tattoo convention
and then arrange for this.
See, I can do things when I put my mind to it.
Yeah...you can. It's like the most randomest, amazing wedding ever.
-I love you.
-I love you.
As the speeches begin, Adam can finally sit back and relax.
This man, over this last three weeks,
has put in his heart and his soul to this,
and that's all down to one thing, and that's down to love.
You've done it all pretty much by yourself, mate,
so a round of applause for Adam, please.
My beautiful, intelligent, loving daughter,
I'm so proud to be your dad.
It's been a true honour to accompany you to this wonderful place
to see you and Adam married in such an unforgettable way.
Well done, mate.
'Never been so happy in my life.'
'It's every father's dream, isn't it?
'To walk their daughter down the aisle.'
This was better than the aisle, really, wasn't it?
To Mr and Mrs Butler.
It's been absolutely amazing
and I am so proud of him.
I'm so proud of both of them.
Really emotional and...funny.
Emotional ain't the word!
I cried three... Four times!
It is one of my dreams to see my kids married, yes, definitely.
We've done one, three more to go!
I mean, they had a song written for them
in front of, like, a couple of thousand people.
You're not going to beat that, I promise you,
you're not going to beat it. It's been absolutely fantastic.
Tonight has been amazing.
Adam has pulled it off 100%.
And we had, like, the most incrediblest wedding ever,
like, no-one can beat this wedding.
He's proved that he can actually get off his ass and do something
when he actually wants to.
You've really made me proud.
I've done the best I possibly could.
You've done amazingly. I know you've been really stressed.
It's been worth it. It's been worth it.
That is special, innit? That's better than any ring.
Thank God for that.
I still want a ring though.
Next week, country boy David....
Look at that. It's huge.
..dreams of floating away on his wedding day.
I think I'm doing this.
But will his demanding bride Ellie....
-I'm disappointed that I'm in a taxi.
-You're such a diva!
..be on board...
I think it's a bit of a piss-take, to be honest.
I am disappointed.
..or will this sky-high wedding come crashing down?
Mum, what is that? Mum, what is that?
# Shadow puppets in the dark
# Cannot move very far
# They just stick to the wall
# Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
# Shadow puppets on the moon
# And I know I'll see you soon
# Because I'm hoping in the sun
# Hoping in the sun. #
