If you thought all the excitement during the week of the Royal Wedding was at Westminster Abbey, think again. Fans of ridiculously huge colourful dresses will not be disappointed as Channel 4 is set to let us all celebrate THE wedding of the year: a Big Fat Gypsy one, to air the day before the Royal Wedding on April 28.
Some people may live in palaces and some in caravans, but regardless of wealth or title everyone wants their own wedding day to be absolutely perfect. In recent weeks, cameras have been following behind the scenes as a team of wedding planners have been tasked with orchestrating the biggest, fattest wedding of the year for one this one-off special from the makers of Big Fat Gypsy Weddings.
Can the dresses get any bigger, can the cake get any higher and will one Irish Traveller bride and groom have the perfect wedding of their dreams? Move over Kate and Wills; this is a wedding on an epic scale.
Not only does the one-off spin-off coincide with the Royal Wedding, but also the release of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding on DVD, which is released on April 18.
'My Big Fat Royal Gypsy Wedding' meanwhile will air on Channel 4 at 9PM, April 28.
