Many women would struggle to cope with the idea of handing over full responsibility for planning her wedding day to her partner.
But that is exactly Victoria Goble has done - and people can see the consequences tonight in BBC television show.
Mrs Goble, 26, and her husband Lloyd, 22, who live together in Fakenham, will appear in Don’t Tell the Bride on BBC Three tonight at 9pm.
The reality show, now in its seventh series, sees couples spend the three weeks apart without contact and the bridegroom given responsibility to organise every aspect of the big day, from wedding attire, including the wedding dress, as well as the hen and stag parties.
Mrs Goble did not want to give too much away to ensure she doesn’t ruin the show.
But the fact that she and her husband are still together would suggest the day was not a complete disaster.
Mrs Goble joked: “Who knows, after watching the show, things might change!
“I’ve not seen it yet and I’m really nervous about watching it.
“Lloyd is really laid back and not one for making decisions or organising things so it was a really big thing for him to take on.”
She added: “I’ve always been a big fan of the show and, to be honest, I’ve never been the sort of person who has thought all of my life about my wedding day, which is probably why I did this.
“But I still wanted it to be special and fairly traditional.
“Lloyd is really creative and a bit eccentric so I really didn’t know what to expect.”
Fitness-fanatic Lloyd first met Victoria, a hairdresser, two years ago when she came into his tanning salon in Dereham.
They were engaged after just six months.
The show was filmed for three weeks up until their wedding day, on July 5.
Lloyd moved back into his parents’ home in Dereham for that time.
Mrs Goble said: “It was difficult enough for me to do the whole thing in the first place and being apart for three weeks, with no contact, was really tough.
“My three-year-old daughter Sienna-Rose really missed Lloyd as well.
“There will be about 12 or 13 of us getting together to watch the show at Lloyd’s parents’ house and we’re going to make a bit of a night of it.
“It will be fun, but I’m so nervous about watching it.”
