Episode Six:

We begin this episode with Sam and Elizabeth, just as Lizzy’s new husband declares that he is leaving. His ex-partner has received some devastating news and he has insisted on being by her side. So, he leaves, and his poor wife is pretty heartbroken but tries to be understanding about the situation because he is coming back…right?

The first new couple of the night is Martha and Michael, two young and extremely beautiful individuals who are looking for someone to love. The two seem like a match made in heaven as they share some cute and pretty funny vows before they engage in a passionate snog. Martha pulls her new husband away mid-reception to ask him, in a somewhat confronting manner, if he is really attracted to her. The moment is odd, but Michael is able to brush it off quickly and the two return to their happy selves.

The next couple, Ines and Bronson, are another story entirely. Bronson is a previous stripper turned incredibly successful businessman who is looking for someone to come home to at night, and Ines… is also present. When she first lays eyes on her husband, she can’t help but be critical as she tells him to “Take out your eyebrow ring.” Her bluntness is met with laughter, but things only escalate from there. Ines is incredibly rude to Bronson throughout the event, saying she is disgusted by his past career. Despite taking hit after hit, Bronson keeps a positive attitude and continues to speak fondly of his new wife. But from an audience’s point of view, it looks like he is being set up to come crashing painfully back down to earth.

Cutest Moment of the Episode:

One the way to her wedding, Martha’s dad tells his daughter: “We’re getting married!” with the sweetest grin spread across his face. This moment of support from the bride’s father pulled at people’s heartstrings around the world.

Most Hilarious Moment of the Episode:

Bronson accidentally gets his new wife’s name wrong during his vows, calling her Vaness instead of Ines. Yikes. However, Ines responds hilariously by calling him Brendon as she starts her own vows. The quip has the whole ceremony chortling. So who cares if Ines can be a bit nasty if she is also this hilarious.
