"Cheapest Weddings" Is The Show To Guide You Through This Bleak Winter
There are only six episodes, though, so here's hoping that this bleak winter is short.
During the holidays I came across this tweet by a BBC Radio 1 presenter about a show on Netflix.
And holy hell, he's right. I blasted through the entire series in just two damn days and you should do it too.
She's right. Some of the weddings are ambitious as hell.
There's a Viking-pirate role-play wedding that features 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 is supposed to be outdoors but then a storm rolls in, and my god what a storm it is. )
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 supply and toilet...
...but then a stray firework sets off a grassfire nearby, leading to everyone throwing water to stop it from spreading.
The show also features one of the greatest segues I have ever witnessed in my entire life.
But if I was told, under risk of death, to give only 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.
You can watch Cheapest Weddings on Netflix (for some reason they have removed the word "Australia's" from the title on Netflix, so don't type that when looking for the show).
