The highs and lows of getting married will come under the spotlight when couples across Northern Ireland share details of their big day for a new BBC One Northern Ireland documentary.

Our Weddings, which is aired tonight, is an uplifting look at six decades of getting hitched through the eyes of local brides and grooms.

The inspiration for programme was to help raise the spirits of all those who missed out on wedding season this year due to the pandemic. It follows the stories of NI couples as they reminisce on how they met, their wedding preparations and the big day itself.
