Series 4, episode 8
Junior and Sasha first met one another seven years ago when they joined as cabin crew with Ryanair. One day, Junior asked Sasha out for a drink but never took her number or made a plan. The next weekend they bumped into each other on a night out. Junior didn’t recognize her at first, but started chatting and it took off from there.
The relationship took off quite fast and the couple, were living together within a few weeks. Before they became parents, the couple would move every year. They have lived together in Spain and London.
The couple, have two little girls, Ana (4 yrs) and Wendy (11mths). Life revolves around the children and they cannot wait to include them on their big day.
Junior always needs something to focus on, he needs something to entertain & keep him motivated. He always has to be busy planning something. According to their friends Junior is the opinionated person in the relationship and Sasha is very forgiving, gentle & kind hearted and very open minded. As open minded as she is and daring, Junior knows he can’t take it over the top on the day.
He has strong Spanish tastes and that is Sasha’s main fear. Spanish weddings are very different to a traditional Irish wedding. She is hoping he won’t put her in a flamenco dress and is hoping the budget won’t allow him to plan a Spanish style wedding.
Junior is focused on getting everything for as cheap as possible, he has the gift of the gab and will haggle on all prices. He loves finding bargains and internet shopping. But will he take the risk and shop online for the big day or will he deliver the traditional type of wedding that Sasha so craves?
