If you missed Four Weddings the first time around, you missed EVERYTHING. It was competitive bride-loving bitchiness, sprinkled with a good coating of variety of taste, finished with a dollop of OMG. So much fun. Who wouldn’t want to see three brides-to-be attend another bride’s wedding and judge it, with the view that all attend each other’s wedding and vote for the “best” one, with the winner getting an all-expenses paid honeymoon. Priceless. From the press release:
Channel Seven today announced the second season of FOUR WEDDINGS hosted by Fifi Box will premiere in August, 2011.
Each episode of FOUR WEDDINGS features four highly competitive and opinionated brides as they attend, judge and score each other’s weddings based on the wedding dress, ceremony, menu and reception. The winning couple take home the ultimate prize; a five-star fantasy honeymoon to a tropical paradise.
Host and bouquet-catching expert Fifi believes weddings are the ultimate expression of personal taste and says the upcoming season demonstrates just how individual and varied those tastes can be. “We’ve got some fantastic weddings. One bride arrives at her ceremony on horseback wearing cowboy boots and a tiara. Another couple choose to celebrate their big day over a beef stroganoff with friends at the local pub, and then there’s the wedding with the guest list of 560 people!
“And just like last season our wonderful bride judges are passionate and fearless. If they don’t like something, they won’t be shy in letting you know about it. I can’t wait!”
The wedding themes in the second season are as diverse as the brides’ gown choices: a 50’s Rock n’ Roll wedding with an Elvis impersonator serving as the celebrant, a Mission Impossible inspired ceremony with the groom arriving by helicopter and a wedding in a bat-cave with the bride dressed in black to compliment the bats. In what could be an Australian first, movie buffs Tanya and Jason pay homage to Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings surprising their guests with a ring bearing Gollum and a perfect replica of “Middle-Earth” as their wedding cake.
FOUR WEDDINGS premiered in September 2010. The series is produced by Granada Media Australia for Channel Seven. Executive producer is Geraldine Orrock.
