New TV show “I Do… Take Two”, to give couples a chance to right all the wrongs that occurred on their wedding day
Posted November 1, 2013on:
Your wedding day – it’s supposed to be the biggest day of your life. But maybe it didn’t quite go to plan and instead went more down the pan.
Did a storm scupper your marquee reception or a rogue page-boy create a ruckus in the church? Maybe the best man’s speech revealed too much detail about the ladsy stag. Did a key family member not make it to the ceremony, the rings go missing or the groom’s fly was down? Or perhaps your honeymoon turned into a five star disaster.
Whatever your wedding day catastrophe, Tyrone Productions want to hear from you. They’re currently looking for married couples for a new show – ‘I Do…Take Two’ – in which married couples get to renew their wedding vows and right the wrongs from Big Day number one by doing it all again – but this time just how you dreamed it would be.
No matter how long you’ve been married – be it one year or 50 years – make a big romantic gesture by getting in touch with them now. Email Robert with your wedding day disasters at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number, where you’re from and how long you’ve been married.

A new survey has found that over 50 per cent of Irish brides say bad weather will disrupt their big day, with a third citing the likelihood of good weather in summer months as a major factor in choosing the time of year to get married in Ireland.
The survey of over 230 Irish brides was conducted by one of Ireland’s top wedding venues, Dunboyne Castle Hotel & Spa, which, in response will launch its new ‘Rain or Shine’ offer at the hotel’s Wedding Fair on October 21st.
The four star Dunboyne Castle Hotel’s new ‘Rain or Shine’ offer takes the stress out of Ireland’s typically bad weather for brides and grooms. If the sun shines, the bridal party can have their photography taken in the hotel’s picturesque tree-lined grounds. If the weather is not so good, photography can be taken in the hotel’s light-filled Castle Lounge and originally restored Dunboyne Mansion, with a romantic, candle-lit drinks reception.
“We want to give people the wedding of their dreams and this survey is so useful in identifying that for an incredible 53 per cent of brides-to-be surveyed, bad weather is a real wedding worry” said Elisabet Diaz, General Manager of Dunboyne Castle Hotel & Spa.
The survey also found that over half of respondents said the reputation of wedding venues was a primary factor in choosing a location, more specifically those with great surroundings and photo opportunities. Over 70 per cent choose the weekend to get married for guest’s convenience with Saturday being the most popular day.
Dunboyne Castle Hotel and Spa’s Wedding Fair will feature everything the engaged couple needs to create their perfect wedding from the latest trend – providing guests with a gorgeous ‘pick n’ mix’ sweet selection – to wedding bands, DJ’s, décor and luxury cars. The room will also be dressed as a real wedding to give bridal parties a real sense of what their special day will look like.
The Fair will also feature a Bridal fashion show of Ciara Roe bridal gowns as well as the perfect ‘Mother of the Bride’ outfits. To entertain visitors, there will be performances by wedding favourites The Halleluiah Gospel Choir and dancers, Celtic Fusion. All couples who book their wedding at Dunboyne Castle Hotel’s Wedding Fair will be given a complimentary overnight with breakfast at the hotel’s sister property, Dublin‘s five star boutique Dylan Hotel.
Renowned for its friendly service, sweeping grounds and the beautiful décor of the original Dunboyne House, Dunboyne Castle Hotel & Spa offers couples the ideal wedding destination in the countryside, just minutes from Dublin. The bridal party and guests can also enjoy the hotel’s Ivy Brasserie and its award-winning Seoíd Spa, set over three floors with one of Ireland’s most extensive thermal treatment facilities.
The Wedding Fair at Dunboyne Castle Hotel & Spa takes place from 1 – 5 pm, Sunday, October 21st. See www.dunboynecastlehotel.com
