UKTV’s W channel has handed out a six episode series order to The Wedding Fixer, a new wedding series fronted by Sarah Haywood – one of the most highly respected wedding planners in the world.
The Wedding Fixer follows Haywood as she battles to get couples weddings back on track amidst wedding day turmoil. Whether they’ve blown the budget bridezilla style, or the wedding dress company has suddenly gone bust, Sarah never knowingly holds back when it comes to telling everyone how things are meant to be done. Sarah will be there every step of the way to make their special day one to remember, for all the right reasons.
Along the way, Sarah will be pulling out her little black book full of experts and know how, as well as using her laser like focus and direct approach to resolve each couples’ dilemma. Sarah’s multi-million-pound luxury wedding planning business has covered weddings great and small, from the no-expense-spared events for her celebrity clients, through to the more intimate set ups, making her uniquely equipped to tackle whatever the couples send her way. The series is being produced for W by Little Gem, with the indie’s Kurt Seywald and Ben Gale serving as executive producers.
The Wedding Fixer was commissioned by UKTV’s Commissioning Editor Kirsty Hanson and UKTV’s Deputy Director of Commissioning and Head of Factual and Factual Entertainment Hilary Rosen, and ordered by UKTV’s Director of Commissioning Richard Watsham, UKTV’s Genre General Manager for Comedy and Entertainment Steve North. “This UKTV Original series is a brilliant look at the highs and lows of wedding planning; introducing force of nature, Sarah Haywood, to help couples avoid making mistakes they might regret forever”, said Adam Collings, Channel Director for W. “We can’t wait to see the drama ensue!”
