ITV’s flagship daytime show This Morning revealed earlier this year that it will be hosting - and helping - with another live wedding this summer and asked viewers to get in touch for their chance to be chosen.
 
Hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby surprised couple Sonya Keating and Paul Brough last month to reveal that they were the lucky ones who will get married live on the programme!
 
With just weeks to go until the special day, Phillip and Holly filmed a special wedding teaser promo this week with other familiar faces of the This Morning family including Phil Vickery, Rylan Clark-Neal, Alison Hammond, Dr Ranj, Sharon Marshall, Alice Beer, Steve Wilson and Guide Dog puppy-in-training Luna.
 
Dressed in their finest occasion wear and accompanied musically by Elvis Presley’s Hawaiian Wedding Song, it was clear to see the excitement as the team gathered together. In the promo, viewers get to see the presenters and experts giving words of encouragement, getting emotional, and having sneaky bits of wedding cake.... before Rylan is revealed acting as the lay minister and Holly nudges Phillip to hand over the rings ahead of celebratory cheers!    
 
Holly said, “Today we are filming the promo for our This Morning wedding… it’s our second This Morning wedding, the first one was a great success, a really lovely beautiful day, so this year we’re hoping to recreate the magic once again!”
 
Phillip confessed, “We - and all the team - have been very well behaved during this promo but every single time we clapped, Luna ran off! By the time we got to Take 27 I was desperately trying to bribe her with treats, she has put hair all over my trousers and slobbered all over me... so it’s been a bit unruly on her part, I think she got bored! I’m also hoping they do not use the take where you can see I’ve got the treats in my hand!”
 
Whilst the team are keeping the wedding venue - and other surprises under wraps for now - fashion expert Gok Wan will be helping the bride choose her wedding dress and celebrity makeup artist Bryony Blake will create the bridal look.
 
This Morning’s Editor, Martin Frizell said, “The whole team are working hard at putting together our live wedding, and just as hard at keeping many areas a surprise for the couple!” He added, “This promo is a fun taster to get everyone in the mood for the big day happening very soon.”
