Don't Tell the Bride

Programme 1: Amanda & Richie

Don't Tell The Bride is back with a brand new series. Six more blushing brides leave the biggest day of their lives in the hands of the men they love. The groom gets ten thousand euro and three weeks and the bride gets NO say in how it's spent.

It's all tears - tantrums - and total meltdowns.

Episode 2: Jamie Parker and Danielle Reilly

Danielle originally from Finea in Cavan (30) and Jamie from Edgeworthstown (31) have been together for over five years. The young couple who are drift racing fanatics met at a local car show.

Danielle is the organiser in their lives and has always dreamed of the perfect Cinderella wedding. Loving all things girlie and having spent more than two years searching through bridal magazines for inspiration, it will be Jamie taking the reigns of this wedding and placing his mark on the occasion.

Jamie is quite the practical joker at heart and loves nothing more than winding up his future bride and mother-in-law. A secret Country Western lover, Jamie has a list of surprises up his sleeve and calls in some favours from Country Western royalty, but will he pull it all off in time for his princess bride?
