Married at First Sight UK weddings: How much the glittering ceremonies cost
THEY may be taking the biggest gamble of their lives by marrying a stranger, but at least they're doing it in style.
Married At First Sight UK has returned for its most explosive series yet with sixteen singletons matched by experts into eight newlywed couples.
Here we take a look at how much money is thrown at the glittering ceremonies to give the brides and grooms a day to remember.
So far the most expensive nuptials has been held at North Mymms Park Hertfordshire’s Grade I Listed Elizabethan Stately Home and Castle Ashby in Northamptonshire.
According to Stelrad, Channel 4 bosses may have splashed as much as £24,850 on the reality stars' big day if held at the latter.
That includes venue hire, £2,000 catering for 100 guests, £650 wedding cake, £1,200 flowers and £1,900 photography. Brides were also given a £1,600 budget on dresses.
North Mymms park came in cheaper at a total of £15,850.
It's a pricey risk for Channel 4 seeing as NONE of the matched couples have stayed together across the past five series.
But perhaps this year's bunch of hopeless romantics have a better chance as producers work to make this series more like its Australian counterpart.
Just a week into the new series, the couples have met and tied the knot minutes later.
The 20-episode series follows the contestants from the day they are matched with partners.
It then documents their wedding day — where they meet their love interest for the first time — before focusing on their honeymoon and life together in an apartment block in Brighton which houses all the newlyweds.
Explosive weekly commitment ceremonies and dinner parties will add to the drama.
