During the holidays I came across this tweet by a BBC Radio 1 presenter about this show on Netflix.
And holy hell, he’s right. I blasted through the entire series in just two damn days and you should do too.
She’s right. Some of the weddings are ambitious as hell.
There’s a Viking-Pirate role-play wedding that featured a sword battle just after the vows for no reason.
There’s the couple who live on an island, and because the island is miles from anywhere, the community helps with everything and the wedding costs them nothing (!)
(The wedding was supposed to be outdoors but then a storm rolled in and my god what a storm it was. )
Then there’s the wedding in the middle of nowhere, so far in the middle of nowhere in fact they had to install their own electricity power supply and toilet…
…until a stray firework set off a grassfire nearby, leading to everyone throwing water to stop it from spreading.
The show also featured one of the greatest segues I have ever experienced in my entire life.
But if I was told, under risk of death, to only give one reason why you have to watch this show – it is this: Sue, the general manager of Jindalee Bowls Club.
She also keeps dropping gossip bombs all over.
And at one point she drops a gossip bomb AND advertises Jindalee Bowls Club at the same time.
Trust me, the weather is shocking outside (well it is in most of the Northern Hemisphere). You deserve to watch this Australian programme.
May all of our weddings be like this.
P.S. Jindalee Bowls Club.
