don't tell the bride

It's a marriage made in heaven. Sky has acquired BBC series 'Don't Tell the Bride', with new episodes to air on Sky1 from the summer of next year.

The series gives a couple thousands of pounds to organise their dream wedding, but leaves everything up to the groom. The couple aren't allowed any direct contact for the three weeks leading up to the big day.

In most episodes, the groom does exactly what he wants without a thought for the bride, but it all works out in the end.

The same team at Renegade Pictures will continue to produce the show, which started life on BBC Three and subsequently moved to BBC One.

Sky has commissioned two series, comprising 24 episodes in total.

Viewers are promised a "pacier format", along with all the usual frayed nerves and simmering tensions.

"Charting wedding dramas for nigh-on a decade, 'Don't Tell the Bride' is best in class family-friendly entertainment and a British TV institution to boot!" said Adam MacDonald, director of Sky1.

"Many of our customers are already huge fans of the show so we're delighted to be giving the brand-new series a home on Sky1."

Sarah May, executive producer at Renegade Pictures, added: "We're thrilled Sky1 will be the new home of 'Don't Tell the Bride'.

"I've been part of this show since the very first episode, and it's the dreams and expectations of the young couple brave enough to take on the 'Don't Tell the Bridge' challenge that really makes this series what it is, and will continue to be the foundation of the show as it moves to Sky."
