Synopsis

Three couples fight it out to win Confetti Magazine's competition for the 'Most Original Wedding of the Year'. At stake is a £500,000 dream house, a cover shoot with Confetti and, of course, the most special day of their lives. We follow couples Matt and Samantha, Josef and Isabelle and Michael and Joanna, from the excitement of being chosen as finalists through the eventful weeks of preparation to the Grand Final. Top wedding planners Heron and Hough are on hand to help turn the couples' dreams into reality (and provide the occasional understanding shoulder or two to cry on). Concepts are created, color schemes co-ordinated and dance routines choreographed. Tennis balls, top hats and fig leaves will all play a part. Who will scoop the prize? Will editor Vivien and publisher Antoni regret their choice of finalists? Will the couples' relationships survive the pressures of the competition? All will be revealed on the Big Day.
