Gypsy Brides US

Series 1 - Episode 1



Most American Romani (as they refer to themselves) left their caravans behind when they emigrated, but have remained as fond of bling as their British cousins. Take 17-year-old Shyanne, whose dress, it seems, boasts 14,000 crystals.

There’s something distasteful about the current vogue for gawping and gasping at “them”, but it’s difficult not to, especially when we learn that Shyanne has only met
her husband-to-be twice.


Documentary offering unprecedented access to the mysterious world of American gypsies, and their wild celebrations. This instalment features 17-year-old bride-to-be Shyanne and 22-year-old gypsy rebel Mellie.
