Don’t Tell the Bride, Episode 1 of 5, RTÉ2, Monday, February 12th at 9.30pm
Seven years ago, Jennifer (23) and Robbie (29) met on a night out with friends in Callan, Co. Killkenny. Robbie made the first move. He never had one moment of doubt and knew she was the one the minute they met. They love to spend as much time together as they can. Robbie is a GAA fanatic; he plays and coaches Gaelic and Hurling in his local club. As Robbie doesn’t drive, Jennifer is the designated driver to all his GAA matches.
Jenny is the boss in this relationship. She is the organiser who drives everything in the household. She wears the trousers, the buck stops with her. Robbie on the other hand has never organised anything in his life, he hasn’t even had to buy a pair of socks for himself!
Robbie has a young son Riley from a previous relationship who lives with his mum in England. Christmas is always a special time of year for the family as they head to England to spend it with Riley.
Jennifer has always dreamed of a large traditional wedding in their local church in Callan. Robbie, however, wants to surprise her with a Christmas wedding in August! Filled with Christmas cheer, reindeers, a mechanics course and lots of tinsel, can Robbie and his wise men deliver a fairytale winter wonderland or will it turn in to the nightmare before Christmas?
