How to apply for new TV show Master of Ceremonies and get your wedding upgraded for free

A brand new BBC show, Master of Ceremonies, is looking for couples to volunteer to have their weddings upgraded by professional wedding planners. 

Six couples will be in with the chance of having their wedding planned by some of Britain’s best wedding planners on the show, which will be presented by Dragons Den’s Sara Davies, First Dates’ Fred Sirieix, and wedding industry expert Raj Somaiya.


Master of Ceremonies will see eight wedding planners compete to be crowned Britain’s new wedding expert as they create spectacular ceremonies for lucky couples, and the good news is that anyone has the chance to be part of the show. Whether couples already have some aspects of their wedding arranged or they're starting from scratch, the planners will use their expertise to craft the perfect day for each pairing.

The wedding planners will be judged as they put together the couples' dream weddings, with the weakest planners sent home throughout the show, and the top two battling it out in a final challenge. 

Fred Sirieix says: “Our planners are going to have to bring their A game to deliver creative and beautiful, but also incredibly personal, ceremonies for our brilliant and deserving couples. The wedding industry is so competitive and hospitality has to be second to none. The stakes couldn’t be higher, this has to be the best day of our couples’ lives - so no pressure!”

How to apply for Master of Ceremonies

If you want your dream wedding to come to life, you can apply to be part of Master of Ceremonies now – but you need to be quick, as applications close on August 31.

However, there is a catch – you must be getting married on 16 October, 29 October or 12 November 2022 to be part of the show. Couples must also be over 18, able to live and work in the UK and must be currently residing in the UK.

You can find out more information and apply here. Even if you aren't chosen as one of the lucky couples, Master of Ceremonies will provide serious wedding inspiration - coming to BBC Two next year.
