50 Greatest Wedding Shockers

Radio Times
Review by:
Patrick Mulkern

Wall-to-wall nuptials in the week of the royal wedding — there’s no escaping it — but if your gag reflex is fairly tolerant, here’s an irreverent list show from E4, with “outrageous weddings” that even the happy day may struggle to eclipse.

The countdown includes wacky themes, ceremonies in the buff, in a skip and a shark tank, memorable tear-jerking TV hitches and celebrity/paparazzi barf-fests - all leading up to the “number one most shocking wedding in the world”.

We’re promised Katy Perry and Russell Brand, Liza Minnelli and David Gest, Jade Goody and Jack Tweed, and an American man who wed Pixel the horse. And check out the British Star Wars fans dragged up as Han Solo and Leia, attended by Darth Vader et al, who got spliced on 4 May, just so they could say, “May the fourth be with you!”
