Benefits: My Great Big Benefits Wedding

Series 2, episode 3

Directed by (unconfirmed)
David Coleman

Cameras follow South Wales couple Andrew and Joanna, who are living on long-term benefits, as they plan their wedding day, before they exchange their vows in front of friends and family in a televised ceremony. Originally childhood sweethearts, they went their separate ways as they grew up, but rekindled their relationship two years ago. Andrew is 43, while Joanna is already a grandmother at the age of 38, and they live in a council house and receive just over £10,000 in benefits every year. With the cost of a wedding now averaging £22,000, the couple are forced to make cutbacks across the board and take out loans to achieve the wedding day of their dreams
