Hitched at Home: Channel 4 hosts lockdown wedding this June
James R | On 30, May 2020
Channel 4 will host a lockdown wedding this June and is inviting the nation to watch.
Across the country, thousands of couples have had to cancel their dream wedding day this summer. In this one-off feature length documentary, Fred Sirieix will save the day for one lucky couple and give them a second chance at their big day.
Louise and Patrick live in London but have the dream to move to the country after they tie the knot. These lovebirds, originally destined for a big ‘festival-wedding’ for over 200 people in an orchard, will hand over all the planning to Fred, who’ll be pulling out all the stops by working his magic to give the couple a day they’ll never forget.
After recovering from the surprise that not all hope was lost, and that their big day is back on track, Louise and Patrick will give us a behind-the-scenes look as they plan their big day in just two weeks. Throughout this joyously uplifting special, Patrick and Louise will also give us a behind the scenes glimpse at their romantic three years together. We will also be witness to the couple expressing their commitment and love to one another through personalised vows.
As for Fred – he’ll be working around the clock to make their day as practically perfect as possible. Delving into his list of contacts and friends across the industry, he’s making it his mission to lay on the best food, decorations, entertainment and surprise guests for our couple. He’ll be organising their hen and stag dos, finishing with the big day where Louise and Patrick will make their promises to each other in front of family and friends in a virtual wedding celebration.
Sirieix says: “They had everything originally in place, but it all got taken away from them. So, I’m working with some of my most trusted colleagues to throw the biggest bash we can in these circumstances. I’m working my finger to the bone to organise plenty of surprises for Louise and Patrick and we’re going to make it a day they’ll never forget. I promise you, you will not want to miss it.
The couple add: “Having a virtual commitment ceremony, especially in these times of isolation, isn’t exactly how we thought we’d be doing this. But on the other hand, we absolutely could not have waited another year to do this. The day was the most remarkable way to celebrate our commitment to each other and it honestly was better than anything we could wish for. Fred planned a day that we won’t forget for the rest of our lives. We can’t wait to share it with everyone”.
The documentary will be broadcast on Channel 4 at 9pm on 1st June.
