London, United Kingdom, August 13, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Four Weddings
The Living TV show is the ultimate battle of the brides. Each week four competitive couples go head to head to prove their special day is the best.
Each bride invites three rival brides to scrutinise their nuptials, all in a bid to win every newly wed’s dream prize - a luxury honeymoon.
This week’s brides covered the full spectrum from the most down to earth to the most extravagant.
First up was party girl Amanda, whose wedding day is a good old northern booze up. Rather than get excited about her flowers or veil, this wild child bride is looking forward to sharing a few vodka shots with her mates.
Meanwhile, animal lover Tracey decided to hold her big day at ZSL London Zoo where guests were met by a llama and enjoyed a planned animal tour.
Caroline and Sofi’s weddings couldn’t be more different - from a simple registry office do to a crazy party with the biggest dress the bride could find.
Four Weddings featuring ZSL London Zoo is repeated on Living TV Tuesday and Thursday. Don't miss it.
ZSL London Zoo's Hospitality and Corporate team are happy to discuss how the Zoo's lush landscape makes a magical backdrop for weddings, Barmitzvahs or anniversary celebrations and an extra special day to remember.
The Prince Albert Suite, Raffles Suite and Mappin Pavilion all provide the perfect backdrop for a private party. Each room is available with outdoor space at which to welcome guests with drinks and enjoy unique photo opportunities.
