Season 7

Series 7, episode 1
Paulina & Eduardo - Malahide, Co Dublin

Eduardo da Silva (24) & Paulina Lemke (22) live in Malahide County Dublin.

Eduardo is from Brazil and Paulina is from Poland, they met through a dating website in Ireland almost 5 years ago (they can't agree on how long they have been dating!). Their first date didn't go quite to plan with Eduardo waiting over two hours for Paulina to arrive. Thankfully, he gave her another shot and the rest is history.

They now live with Paulina's Mum Anna and her Nigerian husband Ayo and they share their house with Charlie the dog and Carimbo, their bearded dragon. Paulina's Mum Anna plays a big role in this couple's life and Eduardo knows that he has to impress both women on the big day or he'll be in trouble, "I'm gonna get killed, not just by Paulina but by her Mum as well."

The couple are complete opposites. Paulina is a girly girl who loves fashion, shopping and false eyelashes and Eduardo is more into his adrenaline sports and drinking with the lads.

Being over 5000 miles from home, Eduardo is determined to bring a flavor of Brazil to the wedding - the only problem is Paulina hates all things Brazilian and thinks it's "tacky" - except for Eduardo of course! She dreams of being a Princess, in a castle, wants her wedding to be posh, royal and give wedding envy to all her guests - she admits she doesn't get her name "Princess" for nothing!

Paulina is crazy about horses and must have them involved in her wedding if she is to be happy. Eduardo goes in search of the biggest horse he can find - and comes up with a stripy inflatable one that he plans to have his bride sit under on a Brazilian carnival style float on her wedding day - what could possibly go wrong!

In spite of their differences, it's clear that Paulina and Eduardo are mad about each other. However, this groom knows that if he gets any small wedding detail wrong, Paulina won't hold back and will "smash everything in her way", so the pressure is on to impress!

Series 7, episode 2
Tracey Quinn & Peter Byrne - Tallaght, Dublin

Tracey (26) and Peter (31) have been together over 6 years. They met online dating and became serious quite quickly, spending nearly everyday together. They have a 2 yr old son called Billy.

Billy is an insurance underwriter and Tracey is a writer and vlogger.

Tracey is the organiser in the relationship, the planner, loves a list and according to Peter, "loves a list about a list"!

She likes to have her day scripted and she likes to have a budget done at the beginning of every month. Peter is the complete opposite to her. He is a scatterbrain, not organised, laid back, everything will be "grand" with Peter. He looks at things in black and white while Tracey looks at all shades of grey. Everything in their day-to-day lives is left up to Tracey. The buck stops with her!

Aside from Tracey the other thing Peter is madly, passionately, deeply in love with is football. This season ticket holder gets plenty of time to enjoy his favourite sport as he travels the globe to follow the Irish football team.

For this supporter he has a crystal clear vision for his big day and it's all about the love of his life - football. This is his chance to go football crazy and he's not taking his eye off the ball. While Tracey dreams of taking centre stage with a ceremony in the Olympia Theatre, Peter's ideal place for a wedding is a football field: 'If she knows me. she'll know how important football is to me'. Every girls dream!

This groom is confident he can pull everything together in 3 weeks but is hoping his bride will have a sense of humour on the day - because Tracey is in for a big surprise, Peter has planned a very special "lesson" on the morning of the wedding!

With some advice from a naked stranger, a dodgy wedding veil, a sports club reception, can this football crazy groom really make this drama queen's dreams come true?
