Every bride dreams of the perfect wedding day; be it a traditional village church ceremony with champagne reception or a sun kissed Caribbean affair. But turning these dreams into reality on the big day is no piece of cake. It requires meticulous planning and co-ordination. Which is why style gurus Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan are coming to the rescue.
“We want to bring a fresh eye to weddings,” says Colin “People are much more style conscious these days and a wedding should live up to that standard. On the show we’ll do what we do in people’s homes – bringing in glamour while sticking to the budget that’s available.”
“This is the biggest challenge we’ve ever taken on,” says Justin. “Helping someone with their house is one thing, but taking on the most important day in someone’s life is quite another. We will respect the importance of the day and do our best to make it magical.”
The celebrity interior design duo, take on the roles of amateur wedding planners for this new series. Instead of transforming houses the style gurus are responsible for turning three brides wedding dreams into reality! While the duo are probably a good choice for wedding planners with their vivid imaginations, impeccably good taste, flair for design and meticulous organisational skills, they are also renowned for their inability to stick to budgets and their tendency to go missing in action when a crisis occurs!
Colin and Justin are better known for their interior design skills rather than their wedding planning. This is illustrated during the series by their concern with the design aspects of the wedding such as the choice of fabric being used to cover chairs as opposed to the more important wedding features such as flowers and catering. Colin and Justin inevitably found it hard to keep to the budgets imposed on them and were at times seen to be encouraging the couples to spend beyond their wedding budgets!
In the series Colin and Justin learned the golden rules of wedding planning which are, don't leave too much to the last minute; always keep the lines of communication between planner and bride and groom open; always have a contingency plan; and most importantly, never bother the bride and groom with last-minute hitches!
Justin and Colin will use their flair and insight, together with their impeccable taste (and, of course, respect for the couples budget) to create their dream day.... Read more.
