A blue wedding dress? A 'WEDFEST' in a glamping park?

Last night's Don't Tell The Bride had viewers' nerves shattered.

Primary school teacher Nikki Corscadden (32) and chef Jamie Moten (31) have been together for over five years after meeting on the dating website Plenty of Fish.

So naturally, for the ceremony, Jamie wanted a venue to reflect how the couple first met by getting married by a lake in the middle of an Irish winter.

On and he also wanted to have his non-swimming and fashion conscious bride arrive by boat and dye her €1500 dress blue.

The couple live Kilcock with their three-year-old daughter Lola and baby Sadie who is just seven-weeks-old. Clearly they're committed but it was hard to tell if Nikki was going to run a mile or not when it came to Jamie's ideas for the reception, in a theme that reflects him.

He loves festivals, camping and the outdoors and chose to create his very own ‘WEDFEST’ at a glamping site in the Irish countryside.

Since he and Nikki have got together, Nikki has refused to camp or go to any festivals with him – she would rather stay in a hotel than spend a night under the stars.

And for her wedding day, this bride had visions of getting married in the lap of luxury and preferably somewhere warm and indoors.

Did she run a mile? Of course not.

It all worked out in the end and after all the distress, it actually turned out to be a really touching episode.
