-From the depths of the Earth...
-..to the crests of the mountains...
-My legs have gone weird.
..these crusading grooms must rise to the challenge.
..and just three weeks...
I love that girl. I love her.
..to plan a wedding worthy of their betrothed.
Oh, my God. What has he done?
He just took my dress.
These fair maidens are bound by contract to be legally wedded...
..but have no say in their big day.
Is it all just going to be last-minute and just...rubbish?
Oh, I hate it. I need to get out of it.
Can these hapless heroes marshal their armies...
I love her, but she's a bitch when she's like this.
Do as your future mother-in-law tells you.
..and conquer all before them?
Get out of my pub!
Or will they be...
I'm not doing it.
plans an ambitious great outdoors wedding...
..for his home-loving bride-to-be Jody...
Is Daddy going to do it all wrong?
..while she longs for a local, more traditional affair.
This would be how I'd do it. It's just...quaint.
As Rich and his sceptical best man...
-Don't you feel good, though, that you've actually climbed it?
..try to deliver on Jody's high hopes...
I really want to get married here.
..has he left himself a mountain to climb?
That's the point, up there, where I want to get married.
Or will his wedding hit the rocks?
She's not going to get ready with her wedding dress
in a fricking tent, Richard.
Can today get any worse?
Rich, it will not happen.
I can't do this any more.
I just want to go home, man. I've had enough.
27-year-old Rich and 27-year-old Jody
met six years ago in a nightclub in Kent,
where Jody was performing.
We met in Maidstone in a bar.
I was dressed as a devil - I was working, I was on stilts.
I saw Rich - I saw, like, these big arms...
I was bigger back then.
..and I was like, "Oh, yeah."
And...yeah, just put my bum in Richard's face, really.
That's what made me think I must get your number, actually.
Yes, Jody's devil costume made Rich all horny.
Fast forward to last year,
and the little devils moved in together.
We live in Queenborough, on the Isle of Sheppey.
It's obviously me and Jode, Polly, our six-month-old daughter,
and my best friend Ted.
You are obsessed with your cat.
-I'm not obsessed...
-It's a bit embarrassing, actually.
Not... He's my friend. I have to entertain him.
But Ted the cat isn't the only thing that gets Rich purring.
I absolutely love the outdoors.
I really, really long to just be outdoors.
I love nature, I love being with the animals,
I love being outside. I love camping.
It's really simple. I enjoy it.
While Rich craves the outdoor life,
Jody is much more at home...at home,
staying in with daughter Polly.
My idea of an ideal Saturday night would be onesie on, film, food,
and falling asleep on the sofa.
But when Jody is not being a stay-at-home mum,
..she still likes to show off that fiery side.
I also work for an entertainment agency,
doing stilt walking, fire breathing...
When I tell people I'm a performer,
they're like, "Oh, wow, that is so cool."
I'm like, "Yeah, actually, it is pretty cool."
Back at home, Jody's approach to life is a bit more risk-free.
Actually, it's completely risk-free.
I think I run the house.
Money, financially, what we do, when we do it...
I just can't be bothered with all that side of things.
Obviously, Rich has an input,
But it doesn't necessarily mean I listen to it.
She likes to have a track of everything that gets spent.
She keeps her little diary and her little journals all together.
It's her little thing. Leave her to it -
I'll just go with it.
-How much was it?
-Can't remember. Just put 40.
If I left the finances up to Rich,
and I give him all his cards and all his money back,
we wouldn't have a house.
We'd end up getting evicted, cos no bills would get paid.
But it hasn't always been plain sailing.
When Jody and I first got together,
it worked quite well for two years, give or take.
But we weren't ready for a real serious relationship,
being that young.
So, yeah, we did separate for about 18 months.
It was quite amicable.
Even though we were both upset about it, we knew that,
you know, we'd just go off and do our own thing.
But I was still upset.
It was a tough time, and Rich needed space to think,
so he turned to his other true love -
the great outdoors.
I just took myself away
and I went for a good, long hike up to Mount Snowdon.
Uh...just had some thinking time on my own
and just realised what I want,
and I wasn't really going to stop until I got what I wanted.
And what Rich wanted was to be with Jody for the rest of his life.
From the moment we got back together,
we knew that this was it.
It was proposal, cat, baby, and now wedding.
And it is this final piece of the puzzle
that means the most to Jody and her family.
Every girl has pictured an elegant, classy wedding.
He knows I want traditional
but he is not a traditional kind of guy.
My family have never been at a wedding together,
so this would be the first wedding in the family since my mum and dad,
and I just hope Rich lives up to the expectations.
Jody may long for a romantic, traditional wedding
surrounded by her family,
but Richard's planning something a little more adventurous.
I love the outdoors, and I want to incorporate that into my wedding.
Um...and I obviously want to Jody to appreciate the fact
that I love the outdoors so much.
Also, where we're going to have the wedding, it means a lot to me.
It's got a lot of sentimental value to me
and my relationship with Jody.
I think when a bride puts on her wedding dress,
it's clean, it's immaculate, it's white.
She doesn't want that to change, so whether...
Wherever you go for your ceremony and your reception,
it has to be clean.
Like, I don't want to walk on mud. I've got a clean, white dress on.
The idea for my wedding is to actually get married
on the top of Mount Snowdon.
So Rich hopes to wow his home-loving bride-to-be
at the place where he realised he couldn't live without her -
up a mountain 300 miles away, on top of Mount Snowdon.
The main thing that would upset me about my wedding day
would be if it's far away and if it's outside.
That would just be, like...
That would just be the worst.
It could go quite wrong. I'm worried.
The time has come for Jody and Rich to say goodbye.
What are you going to miss the most?
Polly and you. I'm going to cry.
The next time they will see each other
will be in three weeks, on their wedding day.
-I love you.
-I love you.
It's been quite surreal, up till now.
All the emotions have kind of...kicked in.
Yeah, I'm going to really miss them all.
I'm just scared because the next time I see them,
it's going to be, like...we're going to be getting married
and it is going to be on top of a fricking mountain.
Whose stupid idea was this?
While Jody stays at home
to look after Polly, their daughter, and Ted the cat,
Rich is moving in with his best man Kane.
-All right, boy?
-What's going on? You all right?
-Yeah, good, you?
-I was expecting you to be in tears.
-No, it wasn't that bad.
-What about Teddy?
-Getting emotional over your cat.
-Come on, man.
-What, the cat?
No, all of them. It's my family, ain't it? Come on.
-I'm your family now, for the next three weeks.
What ideas have you got, then? What plans have you got?
Me and you are going on a bit of a road trip, boy.
We're going to Wales.
-You've always said you'd get me down there.
-I'm going to get you all there, now.
-No way. Oh, no.
I've got my passport ready, don't worry.
Do we need it? No, you don't, do you?
No, you idiot! THEY LAUGH
-Don't need it for Wales.
-On a serious one,
there is going to be a hell of a lot of walking involved in all of this.
Like, you really will enjoy it.
-Yeah, but - all that scenery and...fields.
-What's not to like?
It ain't that bad. It's a nice, brisk walk.
I don't like walking over the road to the shop.
You are one lazy mother.
So Rich is struggling to convince even his own best man
about his mountaintop wedding plan.
I'm not outdoorsy at all. I hate it.
So hopefully it won't affect our friendship too much!
Meanwhile, down the road, two of Jody's bridesmaids,
Claire and Hannah, along with close friend Lisa,
are paying a visit.
It doesn't seem real.
I think it'll hit you tonight when you go to bed by yourself.
It's going to sink in when I do something with my day
and I can't ring him and be like, "Rich, I did this."
Like, that's when it's going to sink in.
Will it be about him or will he think about what you would want?
Oh, I think he's going to try and keep me in mind,
but then I also think...
"No, I'm planning this wedding, I'll do it my way."
Is Daddy going to do it all wrong? Hee-hee-hee-hee-hee!
-I don't think he realises how much he's got to do.
I couldn't plan a wedding in three weeks,
-let alone Rich planning a wedding in three weeks.
So the bridesmaids have no faith in Rich whatsoever.
Time to start the 300-mile drive to North Wales with his best man,
who doesn't have much faith in him either.
-Let's get out of here.
Wales, here we come.
Wales isn't going to know what's hit it.
-Long road trip, innit?
What's the time now? 1.20. So were 20 minutes late.
Hm...it's not the end of the world.
300 miles later, and with no idea
if a mountain wedding is even possible,
the boys arrive at their home for the night -
the car park at the foot of Mount Snowdon.
You told me it was supposed to take six hours to get here.
Just want to get my nut down, I'm knackered.
-Night, boy. Love you.
-Night, son. Love you, too.
-Did you sleep?
-I was gone, mate.
-You lucky git.
-Yet, I feel quite good, actually.
I got a stiff neck, I think. It hurts a little bit.
I've got something else that's stiff.
Right, we need to get up and get dressed, because I am cold.
After a few hours of uncomfortable sleep, the boys are up early.
Rich has planned a four-mile hike to the top of Mount Snowdon,
where he's hoping to find the perfect ceremony spot
and, at the same time,
convince his best man about his idea,
though that may prove an uphill struggle.
I can't really see the appeal of the scenery and that at the moment.
Rocks to me.
I absolutely love it here.
I definitely feel like I'm in my element.
This is perfect. This is my favourite spot, definitely.
I'm really looking forward to the day.
The boys set off along the route -
a route that guests will have to hike on the wedding day.
Look at how beautiful this is, eh?
That's the point, right up there, where I want to get married.
We'll be there in about 12 hours, if you get your act together.
You know what they could do with on there?
Feels like we aren't getting any closer. That is steep.
-This the steep bit you talked about?
-Once we get past that, it's all right?
You just can't do that, Rich.
We've kind of got to, mate. It's the way up.
Four hours later, with the mountain well and truly climbed,
Rich is banking on swaying his sceptical sidekick
with the breathtaking views.
Trouble is...there aren't any.
-Don't you feel good, though, that you've actually climbed it?
I would appreciate it more if I could see anything.
Well, look, imagine how good it will be, right,
if we can just get everyone up here, have the ceremony in the caff, right?
And then Jode comes in on a helicopter or something...
If we can get a helicopter, mate...
Where does it land?
I don't know, we'll find out.
But it's getting everyone here - like...
There's got to be another way up. There won't be a wedding if you're walking up here.
-Is that a station?
-Yeah, that's a station,
but there's snowdrifts up against the tracks.
Ruling out a four-hour hike for the guests,
-they consider another option.
The Snowdon Mountain Railway -
but so far, there's no sign of an actual train.
I haven't actually seen the train today, at all.
If the train is not actually running, then...
There's probably not actually going to be a wedding on Snowdon, is there?
-Enjoy that today, mate?
-No, not really...
Convinced only the railway will keep the wedding on track,
the boys head back to find out if the train can take the wedding party
up the mountain on the big day.
-Hi, you all right?
I need about 60 guests to get up to the summit.
-What date are you hoping to do that?
-The 17th of this month.
We won't be reaching the summit until the end of the month.
Can... Is there not...? I mean...
If the money was a little bit better, is it possible to actually do this?
It would be impossible - for that date, for the 17th,
it would literally be impossible.
-Let's go home, then.
I mean, we can take you to Clogwyn, which is a three-quarter distance.
It has, like, an open plateau there. There's no building or facilities.
I'm happy with that, actually. I mean, I know it's not the summit,
but if the summit is not actually an option, do you think
we can maybe book a train so that we can go and have a look?
That's no problem.
With Rich's Snowdon wedding hanging on a cliff edge...
-Are you ready to board?
..the boys head back up the mountain to check out plan B - Clogwyn,
a patch of land three-quarters of the way up the mountain.
So, what we could do, we could certainly have ribbons
on the front, like limousines do.
-Like a V-shape on that big window.
-You can do that?
Yes, we can do that.
It's all pulling together now, yes.
As Rich makes tracks to see his last chance
of getting married on Snowdon,
bride-to-be Jodie has come to see her dream venue -
300 miles away in the sunny Kent countryside.
She's with her bridesmaids to visit Preston Court,
a unique wedding venue,
set within the grounds of a secluded private estate.
Oh, look at that. Oh, it's so pretty.
I really want to get married here.
-I'm going to cry. I really want this place.
It really is lovely.
Imagine it - me and Rich here, and you guys lined up here,
and the ushers, and then we can have guests over there.
That view is just amazing.
Back on Snowdon, the boys arrive at Clogwyn -
a cold, wet patch of land 779 metres above sea level,
with no facilities whatsoever.
Still, it does have some stunning views.
When you can see them.
-Welcome to Clogwyn.
With the awful conditions and complete absence of anything
you might need for a wedding, this must be a real let-down, right?
-This is lovely.
-That view would be wicked up here.
-It would be, wouldn't it?
-I reckon everyone would love it up here.
-That would be lovely for photos as well, wouldn't it?
You know what, mate? It's coming together.
I just hope the weather is not like this.
Shall we continue this chat back in the train? I can't see a thing.
Yes. I'm cold now, as well, and wet.
Cheers. Thank you very much.
-Can't see a thing.
So, maximum price, not going to be more than £2,500, is it?
-Yes, maximum price.
-That's perfect, then.
-Thank you so much.
For a maximum of £2,500,
Rich books the location for his mountain wedding ceremony
and a train to help his guests get to it.
The price was so cheap. I thought it was going to be, like, triple that.
So... Yes, I'm well happy.
And to make the marriage official,
he spends another £120 on a registry office.
Back in Kent, Jody has found the perfect place
for her wedding reception
in the estate's 17th-century Kentish barn.
It's so pretty!
I could totally picture myself getting married here.
The little tea lights and the flowers...
Do you know what? If I was doing this,
this would be how I would do it - like, bang on, with the teacups
and the little cake stands.
I think a barn is just, like, the perfect venue,
cos it's just...it's just quaint, isn't it?
I just love it. I just don't think
that you'd want to get married anywhere else.
Like, a barn is the place to be.
Great news, because Rich does want a barn for the reception.
Oh, you're joking...
But reception venues aren't easy to come by up a mountain,
and the first place Rich looks at is less converted Kentish barn,
more...well, just a barn, really.
I pictured us having a three-week jolly up in Wales,
not walking down dirt tracks.
-All right, mate.
-Are you afraid of cattle?
-Oh, that's good, then.
To be honest, mate, I was after, um...something a bit...
I'm not getting married in there. I appreciate your time.
-I'm going. I'm going. Thank you, mate. Thank you.
I've had enough of this.
So barn number one is more "cow factor" than "wow factor".
Will barn number two beef up their hopes?
-How are you? I'm Will.
-Got your work cut out with this one, mate.
Floor might be a bit of an issue.
Obviously, like, everything in here can be cleared out, can it?
-Can we decorate and just do what we want with it?
How much would you charge for it?
-Around £1,000 for it.
And then that'd be cleared.
We'll clear it out, you know, that's nothing for us.
-We'll clear it out.
So, to clear it out
and then chuck a load of hay bales in here and stuff...
-Those are dear.
So, top whack, with a load of hay bales,
if I said 1,200 quid, that'd be more than enough, wouldn't it?
Yeah, and I'll throw in a lamb.
-We'll have that for Sunday roast.
I really appreciate your time,
I really do and, to be honest with you, I quite like it.
I know it's crazy, but I quite like this and the free lamb, you've pretty
much sold it to me there, so...thank you very much for your time.
-That's all right.
-Cheers, mate, thank you.
Few minor details need sorting out, like the floor.
I think the price is about what I expected as well,
that's not a bad price for an actually venue, albeit...not...
..the greatest of places.
If I go for this barn, he said I could have a lamb.
I'm well happy about that.
So, for £1,200, Rich books a barn with no water,
heating or toilets and in desperate need of a new floor.
On the plus side, he's got a free lamb.
It's been an uphill struggle but, against all the odds,
Rich and Kane have sorted a venue for the wedding reception...
..and a mountain for the ceremony.
See? Told you it's not that hard. We should just be wedding planners.
It's not actually that hard, is it?
It's the boys' last day in Wales before their long drive home
but, after a heavy night, they're struggling.
Look what we got through.
-Look at all that.
You need to shake a leg, mate, we've got loads to do today.
I feel sick, though.
-I woke up in the storeroom.
-What, you didn't even find the room?
As hangovers sink in,
so does the reality of spending £1,200 on a barn with no facilities.
Can we sort something out on the price, Will?
Really? You won't have to do any of the work.
Leave the floor, we'll sort all that out.
You'll come down to £1,000, will you?
So, it'll be £1,000. OK.
Thank you, mate. Cheers.
He said £1,200 for him to clear it, to do the floor,
to get the hay in, he said that was £1,200, maximum, and you've said,
"Don't do the floor, don't do the hay
"and don't clear it out" and he knocked 200 quid off.
I know it's £1,000, but we need a venue.
I know, but they're not doing nothing,
so what you paying £1,000 for?
Where else are we going to have it? In here?
You might as well pay the extra 200 quid and let him do everything,
cos then we ain't got to come up here on the 10th, have we?
Remember before, like, a few times, when I said you were a bit dense?
This is one of them moments.
They know that I need somewhere,
-so they can charge what they want.
-So you're going to pay it?
We'll stay another three nights till we find somewhere else, shall we?
I want to see my daughter.
It's about your wedding!
Rich gets £200 off at the expense of having to do all the work
converting the barn himself.
Can we not have any more arguments, please?
Yeah, I don't really fancy any more.
Didn't think we'd end up arguing.
LAUGHING: Love you, man.
In Kent, Jody is visiting the man who knows her better than anyone
else in the world, and someone Richard cannot afford to upset -
My dad's opinion is very important about the wedding, because I don't
want him to be annoyed at Rich, get angry at him about anything.
-Can he do anything to piss you off?
-Yeah - if he pisses you off.
-All that matters to me is that you're happy.
As long as you're happy, then I'm happy.
What if it gets to the day and he's really pissed me off?
-I'll have a quiet word with him.
-I've been speculating what it could be.
I'm thinking, knowing Rich, he's outdoorsy...
-It's going to be outdoors.
-That's what I'm thinking.
-Is he that stupid, do you think?
-He is, ain't he?
Jody's wedding day, I think,
is possibly the most important day of her life.
She's been planning for it since she's been about four or five
and, hopefully, it's going to be everything that she wants.
Well, if it is going to be everything she wants,
she'll need the perfect dress,
regardless of where she ends up wearing it.
So Rich and Kane have come shopping in the hope of finding it.
-Hiya. I need to get a dress, I'm getting married next week.
That's nice - any style?
But having blown a large chunk of the budget on a barn
and the train, Rich will have to find the dress on the cheap.
-See, like, that style, maybe, but that's not...
-What is it?
Is that, like, the one that...?
This is like a... Yes, like a fishtail, like a mermaid.
What sort of price would that be?
This is... 1,800.
You have a budget to spend?
I was hoping I could get the wedding dress
and the bridesmaids' dresses and the rings for about a grand.
Meanwhile, Jody and her three bridesmaids are visiting her
friend Tasha's couture bridal shop in London to find her ideal dress.
This is a fishtail with a diaphanous overlay.
This would look absolutely stunning on you. This would look outrageous.
Love that. That...
-I'd love a bit of this.
-You would look so beautiful in that.
SHE GASPS Let's do this.
My God, I'm so excited.
I'm nervous, actually. Why am I nervous?
No, I don't like it.
-Do you not see this as a bit of me?
What is wrong with you?
I love this neckline.
It's classy, it's elegant.
This is a definite contender.
So Jody's first choice of a classic styled,
high-necklined dress hasn't quite impressed her bridesmaids.
It looks like these girls will be a tough bunch to please.
Meanwhile, over in Kent, things are bubbling along nicely.
Rich wants his bride to look perfect on her wedding day and he's
picked out an elegant A-line dress embellished with crystals.
Yeah, I like that.
-That's well nice, innit?
-And how much was this one, again?
How about something like this?
-So many different styles...
-Yeah, that's nice. That's really nice.
Oh, try that - that's...
I like it even more!
Back in London, there are no such budget concerns for Jody.
She's found a classic fishtail gown made with delicately beaded
lace for a mere 1,800.
-I like that.
-I really like this.
I quite like this. I like the lacy bit.
With a figure-hugging style, sweetheart neckline
and off-the-shoulder reverse bolero,
she's found the one.
-Yeah - I'm actually crying now.
-I can really see me in this.
-Do you guys like this one? You do, don't you?
Yeah. Oh, God.
Tissues here - look!
Paper tissue - that is the one.
-Yeah, the lace - I love the way it fits.
-It's not too blingy, as well.
This is what I had in my head.
Jody has set her heart on this elegant, floor-length gown.
But the boys think they've struck gold with a princess dress
and long train.
-Yeah, that's nice - that's one you just pulled off of there for £500.
That's really nice. Give us a bit of a twirl.
Oh, wow - it's massive as well.
That's really nice, yeah. It's not too heavy, right?
Cos she's got quite a bit of walking and whatnot to do.
It's nice and light.
Oh, that just...
-Oh, there you go.
-How much is that?
-What, the tiara?
I tell you what, sold.
-Sold. I like that. I really like that lot.
That looks awesome and I hope - in fact, I know - she'll love that.
Rich is convinced he's found the perfect dress and for just £651,
but over in London, Jody's also convinced.
You'll poke him in the eye if he gets it wrong, ain't you?
Because this one is, like, the one,
now, I'm going to be like... Whatever one he gets me,
I'll be like, "It's not this one."
Oh, it's not going to happen.
I didn't think a dress could ever make me feel
as emotional as this one did.
I very much doubt he can find a dress that makes me look
and feel as good as that one did.
It's perfect. I'm so happy with it, so I just really...
I just really hope that Jode likes it, cos I love it
and I know she'll look beautiful in it. It's a £1,200 dress for 500 quid.
I can't believe it. It's all going so well, so far.
Things may be going well now,
but the next shopping trip is a little more risky.
Here we are - tents. That's good, ain't it?
Rich is hoping a mountain wedding will make his indoorsy bride
fall in love with the great outdoors -
and for Rich, that means camping.
You know what? I'll probably go with this one.
-I need to go...
-Wait, there's still more.
Trouble is, Jody hates it and Rich knows it,
so he wants the ultimate luxury camping
experience for his bride-to-be on the night before her wedding.
I like the other one - this one down here.
I'm going to go and get someone to help me.
Hi, mate, all right? Need to buy a tent.
-Can you give us a hand, maybe?
-Yeah, course, yeah.
So, how much would this whole set-up be, then? Just over 410. OK.
Sold. KANE LAUGHS
Sleeping bags - all right...
-Oh, mate, seriously, that hurt. Argh!
-It weren't my fault.
I'm going to get that for Polly. She'd just sit in it.
She won't be able to sit in that. How old is she?
Seven months. But it's eight quid and it'll look cute.
Yeah. Like that... Doosh!
She'll be at the wedding with a big lump on her head.
She'll have her own mountain.
Do you get bored working in this shop?
Forgot about them, as well.
£22.75 over budget.
That's all right, isn't it?
Taking a risk putting his bride under canvas,
Rich has spared no expense to make Jody love camping.
he's even spent more than on her wedding dress.
She is not over keen on tents, unfortunately, but I treated her -
I got a good tent.
Oh, for... I've had enough of this.
With the camping equipment coming in at over £700
along with the dress and his stay in Wales,
Rich has now spent the majority of his 12 grand budget.
Back at home,
Jody is struggling with being kept in the dark about her wedding.
It does not feel like I am getting married.
It has not sunk in, at all.
It doesn't feel like anything is happening.
Unfortunately, Rich isn't the only family member
who loves to escape into the outdoors.
I may have misplaced the cat.
I've been staring out of the windows trying to find him.
Rich is going to kill me if he isn't back home.
Oh, Teddy, come home.
With no idea Ted's gone walkabout,
Richard is like the cat that's got the cream,
and he's rewarded himself and Kane for all the hard work.
Hope there's some girls getting their hands on us.
-You all right, boy?
Just worried about the budget, mate.
Oh, no. This is your day for relaxing.
And when even a spa session
isn't quite enough to take his mind off things,
Kane is always able to provide a supporting hand.
We've got a lot of work to do still.
Chill out! Relax...
And mellow through.
And you'll always be happy.
I don't know how much all this has cost, all this, yet.
It's taken my mind off the budget
which is disappearing quickly.
Erm... How much do I owe you, please?
Altogether, it is £230.
I think we've got about £430 left now.
And there's still quite a few quite important bits
that we have got to get sorted.
I don't know what I'm going to do.
That's brilliant, thank you so much.
At bridesmaid Claire's house Jody is stressing, too.
And she doesn't even have a spa to make things better.
The final week is looming and she still has no date for her wedding.
I'm starting to get a little bit stressed out now that nothing is happening.
I would've thought we'd have heard something by now.
I would've thought so.
If I'm having a hen do it should be this weekend, surely.
He doesn't understand the consequences of leaving it so late.
He's going to get himself in trouble.
But best man Kane is on his way with a surprise.
Oh, wow. Oh, Kane...!
Got to shoot.
My God, they're massive! Take them, take them, take them!
They are beautiful. "Friday the 17th of April.
My wedding! Yay!
Definitely feel like I'm getting married.
It's all become suddenly real, just, like, a knock at the door,
at bunch of flowers and card,
like, it's happening.
Yeah. I'm really excited now.
It's the final week,
and with just a few hundred pounds left in the budget,
the boys are heading back to Wales
to sort out the wedding Rich hopes
will convince his bride to share his love of the great outdoors.
Wales, here we come, yeah?
First, the farmer's barn they've hired for the reception needs clearing...
-Here he is.
..but not before one last go at haggling on the price.
-Good to see you again.
-How are you?
-All right? Obviously, you want £1,000, don't you?
-There is no movement, at all, no?
-You robbing bastard.
-I was going to say...!
-I'm here to...
Mate, mate, come on, I understand.
Well, that didn't last long.
£1,000 it is, then.
The boys get busy turning the barn into a venue fit for a princess.
And with no movement on the price,
they're getting value for money any way they can.
-(Put it back.
-He's charging you a grand!
-Well, nick one later, then.)
At least get an ice cream!
What, you just going to just let it melt in your pocket?!
Progress at the barn is moving quickly,
and the boys are finally on a roll.
Oh, my God!
It's two days before the wedding.
Everything is closed.
Rich has asked a friend to organise transport for Jody's hen do.
But the girls have no idea they'll be travelling 300 miles
to Wales, or that Wales is also where the wedding is happening.
It says North Wales.
Definitely. It's definitely Wales.
After a few hours on the road Jody smells a very outdoorsy rat.
And she's not impressed.
-Are you guys surprised?
That is so predictable...!
So Rich's big surprise isn't really a surprise, at all.
Done well today, mate.
But he doesn't know that. And he's reflecting on a good day's work.
Well done. I've earnt this.
You've earnt that, as well. Cheers, boy.
After a seven-hour journey,
the girls have finally reached north Wales
and their bunkhouse for the night.
It's not exactly five-star luxury, still,
it beats the tents they'll be sleeping in tomorrow night!
Really? The Vagabond?
-Is this it?
This is very quaint, isn't it?
-This is your room.
-Oh, my God!
What time does your bar shut down there?
Oh, it just gets better and better(!)
I feel like we're camping, but...indoors!
So relieved it's not a tent.
The girls were hoping for a wild night out,
what they got was a night out in the wild.
And the bunkhouse is not going down well.
I haven't got high hopes for this hen.
Hannah's not too happy.
Mainly disappointed that we're not going out tonight.
I don't honestly think we'll have a hen do.
The bar shuts at half-seven
and we are getting in our pyjamas and going to bed.
Which will be...fun. Yay.
It's 7.30pm, and as the girls enjoy their last orders...
Hopefully, the wedding night will be fun.
..Rich's mates have arrived to take him on his stag night.
He ain't going to be walking home.
I know that for a fact. I can't wait!
Although Rich is enjoying cutting loose,
he can't help but wonder how Jody is finding
her Welsh experience, so far.
Yeah, stag do's going great.
Fingers crossed Jode likes the accommodation tonight.
I am trying to minimise the alcohol consumption.
It just don't seem to be working.
It's the morning after the stag
and the day before the wedding.
Rich is at the campsite to drop off the wedding dress
at the spot where the girls will spend the night.
I really want them all to appreciate how good camping can be.
It's the great outdoors. What's not to like?
Yeah, she's going to love that.
Battling his hangover, Rich adds the finishing touches
to make sure everything is just right for the girls.
Don't think it was a good idea having the stag do the night before this.
I seriously feel I'm going to throw up, actually.
I think I'm dying.
But he does muster the strength to finalise his biggest surprise of all.
A helicopter to take Jody from the campsite
to the wedding ceremony on Snowdon.
That's absolutely fantastic.
Thank you so much.
Thank you. Bye-bye. Bye-bye.
Jody's really not going to expect this, at all.
Being picked up in a helicopter...
She's... Well, she's... I just...
She just won't think I've got the...
..imagination and the capability of making this happen, I guess.
Yeah, she's going to be well surprised.
So, Rich spends £1,400 to make sure Jody arrives
at her mountain wedding in style.
Well, more rested than Rich, at least,
the girls are starting the next stage of the hen do.
Rich is sending them underground to Bounce Below,
a subterranean playground
in a cavernous old slate mine.
-Seems like fun.
Unless you're terrified of heights...
Look how high it is!
..like Jody is.
Don't look down, don't look down, don't look... Oh, my God!
Have you seen how high this is?
I've gotta get off, I've gotta get off, gotta get off...!
I can't do it, it's too high.
Oh, I feel sick. I didn't think I'd be this bad.
I think I've got serious vertigo.
Well, at least this is the highest she'll have to go this week.
Unless you count her wedding on the tallest mountain in Wales
and the helicopter ride to get her there.
Which you probably should.
The bridal party is back on the road for another two-hour drive
to reach Richard's camping surprise.
I wouldn't expect anybody to come this far for a wedding.
I wouldn't blame them, either. It's too far.
-We're staying in a caravan!
Rich wouldn't make them sleep in a caravan.
He's making them sleep in a tent.
I wasn't expecting this, at all!
Of course it's a tent! "What will annoy Jody the most?"
It's my dress!
Oh, look, it's a cat.
"To my princess, I hope you enjoy your home for the night.
"I think you will look beautiful in this dress tomorrow.
"Please be ready for 12 noon.
"So you can enjoy your evening
"I will arrange for Polly to be collected later
"and she can stay the night with me. Love you so much. Rich."
I am not staying in a tent! Back on the bus, everybody.
I'm not staying in a tent, no way.
Staying in a tent before your wedding night,
obviously I want to wash my hair and things like that
and I don't want to walk out of a tent, in a dress. So predictable.
I just thought he might do something different.
Can somebody ring Rich?
Richard's plan is backfiring and Jody is not happy at all.
It's down to sister Rachel to break the news that the bride won't
spend the night before her wedding under canvas.
-Hi, Rach, you all right?
-We've arrived at your tent.
But Jody is point blank refusing to stay in the tent
the night before her wedding.
-Listen, you can't not stay at that location.
-What am I meant to do?
You know how stubborn Jody is, you know how she is.
She don't want to put her wedding dress on in a tent, mate.
Rachel, I really need your help on this one, please, Rachel.
Has my sister got somewhere decent tomorrow to get ready
for her wedding?
She... Jody's getting ready in the tent tomorrow.
She's not going to get...
She's not going to get ready with her wedding dress
in a tent, Richard.
Listen, Rachel, please.
-I feel so sorry for my sister.
You could have done things differently, Richard,
-you could've, you could've.
-It is what it is.
I need you to do this for me.
It is what it is because of the way you've planned it,
the way you've done it.
If my sister does not want to spend the night before her wedding
in a tent, there's nothing I can do.
I can't do this any more. I can't do this any more.
This ain't finished, mate.
We're on the last bits. Come on.
This is too much. It's too much now.
-I just want to speak to Jode...
-You're going to, all right?
You're going to see her walking down that aisle.
I just want to go home, man, I've had enough.
I feel so sick, I just ain't eaten, I ain't slept, everything.
And I just get a load of grief, man, it's just too much.
Rich had his hopes pegged on a tent, but his big dream of getting
Jody to fall in love with the great outdoors is crumbling fast.
And now it's casting doubt over the whole wedding.
The girls have left camp and checked themselves into somewhere
they think is a little more suitable to the night before a wedding.
But now Jody's struggling to be optimistic about the dress
he's chosen for her.
It's been so shit that I don't know if a good dress
and a good venue can make up for it.
A lot now rides on this dress.
If Jody likes it, the events of earlier MAY be forgiven.
But if she doesn't, there may not be a wedding at all.
Oh, man. It's too much, innit, now.
Ew. Oh, no, I don't like it at all, it's awful. I think it's disgusting.
No, it's awful.
Saying that, I don't mind this being a dress that my kids rip up for
Halloween and wear as a dead bride, so that's fine, that's a bonus.
Polly, you can wear this for Halloween.
Put some fake blood on it, when you're older.
Can today get any worse?
Back on the mountain,
and with no idea that Jody doesn't like the dress,
Richard's called in the cavalry to help sort out his reception venue.
She is so stubborn sometimes and you can't change her mind.
I love her to the moon and back.
But she's a bitch when she's like this.
Well, hopefully she'll like the dress more once she's tried it on.
-I'm not wearing it.
No! Rachel, look at it, it's disgusting.
-Do you guys like it?
-Can we tighten it up and see what it looks like?
-Hold on, hold on, hold on. Have you got your van with you?
Can you take me home?
-No, Jode, stop it.
-No, honestly, can you...
On a serious note, can you take me home?
She's turning into Bridezilla and she never wanted that.
-No, it's not.
-Guys, I'm not wearing it.
-It's not... The dress is not that bad.
-I'm not wearing it.
-Let's calm her down.
-I'm not wearing it.
-Go in the bathroom.
Go in the bathroom.
With Jody getting changed out of her dress,
and looking for a lift home, Rich gets the call he's been dreading.
-Hello, Claire, how are you doing?
Jody's tried on the dress.
She is refusing to wear it tomorrow.
She is wanting to go home right now, too.
She's asked if someone will take her home.
I need... I need you to be at the camp site.
I'll see what I can do.
It's the morning of the big day, but Richard has woken up uncertain
if Jody is still in Wales and if the wedding will be going ahead.
She was quite happy to say she weren't going to come.
I'll be there waiting for her and if she don't turn up, then, er...
-I'll be just a
-on a mountain.
A few miles away, Jody is at least still in Wales...
..in body, but not necessarily in spirit.
The girls decided to do me a hen do themselves. Yeah.
I can't even remember much.
Richard just got it so wrong up until this point
that he could not possibly let me down any more.
Jody has decided to go through with the wedding
but expectations are at rock bottom.
Still, maybe she'll like the dresses Rich chose for the bridesmaids.
I don't...disgustingly hate them.
-But I don't like them.
They're very yellow, aren't they? Those shoes are just hideous!
The hungover bride is struggling to muster any enthusiasm
for her big day.
I was very surprised by Jody's reaction to the dresses,
just cos I thought she would love them.
They're not that bad. I don't think.
-Aw! Jode, you look lovely.
You look like a princess.
I know, I didn't want to be a princess on my wedding day, though.
Hopefully a surprise visit from the most reliable man in her life
-KNOCK ON DOOR
-Oh, you look nice!
-And you got a haircut.
You all right?
-It's nice to see you here.
-You look beautiful.
-Really? I hate it.
You look lovely.
I feel like a toilet roll holder. Look how much material there is!
Dad, he wanted me to stay in a tent on my wedding night.
-It's all going to be all right. I promise.
Some reassuring words from Dad later,
Jody starts the journey to her wedding, back to the camp site.
I need a paracetamol.
-What were you drinking?
Sambuca, tequila, Disaronnos and cokes, Lambrini, cherry sours,
And then some other tall...
-I hope it hurts.
It really does.
As the bride begins to regret her heavy night,
Rich arrives at the station with no idea how many,
if any, of his guests have made the 300-mile trip up from Kent.
All right. This is Uncle Richard, Jody's uncle. I want to see...
better see everyone.
We're all here, it's all right. You're all right, lad.
It'll be all right.
It's overwhelming, like... It's just, they're here.
Oh, thank you all so much for coming.
I thought I was going to walk in and no-one would be there.
The turn-out in there is just like, it just...
It hit me and just, wow, it's overwhelming.
Back at the camp site, 15 miles away...
You're just being grumpy because you've got a hangover. Pack it in.
..Jody still has no idea she's getting married on a mountain.
But she is about to find out how she's getting up there.
-Do you want to come and see what you're flying in?
How long does it take to get from here to Kent?
I never thought Rich would pick a helicopter.
So that's it, he's surprised me once.
All right, if everyone's happy then - I say happy, loosely speaking...
-Let's do it. Have you done all your checks?
-They're all good.
Argh! Oh, no, I don't like that.
I just feel like it's going to fall out of the air any second.
-It amazes me how they stay in the air, it really does.
I don't know what the hell's going on right now.
-I do, you're about to get married, mate. Gutted!
-What have I done?
What have I done?!
Of course I'd get married on a mountain. Of course I would.
That, down there, looks like a train track.
There's a train that goes up Snowdon.
I'm getting married on Snowdon. I knew it, I knew I would be.
-What's that noise?
-That's all right, don't worry about the noise.
-Is that my wedding guests?
-I think so.
Ahh! Oh, I don't like it.
-My legs have gone weird!
-Come on, it's all right, mate.
Let go a sec, look.
I got this.
I'm going to get blown away!
-Well done, Jode.
I hate you so much!
It's OK, it's all over now, it's fine.
Are you OK?
After three weeks, 300 miles
and almost 3,000 feet up a mountain, Rich and Jody are finally reunited.
Welcome, everybody, to Snowdon.
May your marriage bring you all the exquisite excitement
a marriage should bring. May you look for things to praise.
And take no notice of the small faults.
Yeah, just the small ones!
I now introduce Uncle Richard.
These rings mark the beginning of a journey, filled with wonder.
-Are you all shaky?
Rich may not have given Jody the traditional wedding she dreamed of,
but he has shared his lifelong love of the great outdoors.
And against all the odds, it seems to be going down well.
Personally, I'm extremely happy.
I think they're an absolutely great couple with a great child
and a great future.
I thought it was so spectacular the way she came in in a helicopter.
-I wasn't expecting that.
I've managed to pull it off, what the hell? I did not see this coming.
Haven't completely managed to pull it off, but we'll see.
After the wedding blessing on a mountainside,
Jody gets her first look at Rich's real Welsh mountain barn reception.
-Oh, look, it's a shed!
-Aw, look how pretty it looks!
-Look at the cake!
-How cool's that?
-That is cute.
When I was thinking of a barn, I didn't think actual barnyard.
It's an actual cow shed.
With some fairy lights.
But he's tried to shabby-chic it. I must admit, this is very cute.
And I love all of this, all the details, it's really cute,
and I love all the yellow.
No, I do love it, I love all the bunting, it's really cute.
I think a lot of effort's gone in, I think for Rich to come here
and do this, a lot of effort's gone into it.
-Hi. All right?
-So what was the thinking?
-I wanted a barn.
-There's been a lot of graft gone into this.
-You can tell.
-Do you like it, though?
-Yeah, it's very cute.
First of all, I want to thank you all so much for coming up here
and sharing this day with us.
Kane has absolutely been my rock through all of this. He has...
I could not have done it without him.
Let's all have a toast to Richard and Jody. Wey!
He's definitely not made me want to climb a mountain. No way.
I'm proud of him.
Everyone thinks he can't do stuff, he ain't organised, but...
he shocked me. I was well impressed with everything he done.
The thing I love most about Rich is his enthusiasm.
His stupid enthusiasm for a stupid idea
and he'll stupidly carry on with it.
-How you doing?
-This is Will.
-He owns the barn.
Oh, thanks, Will! I love your barn.
I honestly think she's the most beautiful girl in the room.
And she always is, I love her, she's my rock.
Definitely can't live without you.
I definitely could not live without you.
My life's hard work without you.
# But I've got high hopes
# When you let it go, go out and start again... #
I've learnt to maybe have a bit more faith in myself, actually.
I can make decisions for myself and I am going to continue to make
decisions for myself when we get back home. But...
-I'll probably run it by you first.
Can't wait to see my Ted. I cannot wait to see Ted.
I really have missed him.
-I lost the cat...
..roller hockey mad Luke attempts to pull off the biggest win
-of his career...
..with an epic roller skating wedding...
Everyone is going to be talking about this till, like, forever now!
..for his traditional bride Jaydene.
What the bloody hell is my dress going to look like?
But will he qualify for promotion?
This is a load of crap!
Or score a massive own goal?
Why is he making me do it on my wedding day? I'm not doing it.
