People Think That A Groom On 'Don't Tell The Bride' Was Already Married

People Think That A Groom On 'Don't Tell The Bride' Was Already Married

It might come as something as a shock to you, but not everything that you see on reality TV is, well, real.

Given that nobody really falls in love on Love Island and there are clearly other ways than Essex in The Only Way Is Essex, it'll amaze you to hear that Don't Tell The Bride isn't exactly about not telling the bride.

Of course, him already being married is probably as well, as according to a former participant on the show, the weddings that are seen in Don't Tell The Bride aren't weddings anyway.

"It was written into our contract that our ceremony would not be legally binding and so we should go to a register office later;" a man who appeared on the series told the Mirror.

"It makes a bit of a mockery of the process that the bride and groom go through this huge ordeal for a ceremony which isn't even legal."

Obviously, the couples are on the show because they are actual couples that want to get married, but it does seem like quite an elaborate way to get £14,000 for a wedding.

E4 claim that they are actually unable to host proper weddings, as the bride must see the wedding venue ahead of time - which obviously wouldn't really fit with the premise of the show.

The spokesperson confirmed that the couples do, of course, get married, however: "All contributors sign notice to marry for their legal ceremony in the presence of a production team member but before filming starts," they said.

"An update or photos from this legal ceremony is shown at the end of each episode."
