Don't Tell The Bride calls for Belfast couples to feature in new Sky One show

The popular television show Don't Tell the Bride is appealing for Belfast couples planning on tying the knot to apply to be part of its new series.

The show hands thousands of pounds to a groom to plan a wedding without the bride having any knowledge of what arranged until the big day arrives.

For the past nine years the show has been on BBC 3 and has helped over 100 couples mark their big day - with plenty of tears and tantrums along the way.

However, following BBC 3's move online the BAFTA-nominated programme has jumped to Sky One.

For the new series, grooms will be given a slightly larger budget of £14,000 - compared to the previous £12,000 - and the freedom to organise whatever day they like.

A spokeswoman for production company Renegade Pictures said: “At a time when saving for a wedding is a distant dream for many, Don’t Tell The Bride offers couples the chance to have their wedding this year without the stress of saving for it!

"It’s a unique and memorable way for couples to tie the knot in 2016.  And with it’s exciting new move to Sky One comes a brand new wedding budget, with grooms having £14,000 to plan their dream wedding.”

All couples will be wed in 2016.
