DON’T Tell The Bride fans were left shocked after a gutsy groom splashed cash on a Titanic-themed wedding complete with a staircase for an aisle and a big reception on a boat.
Bobby, from Essex, was tasked with organising his wedding day for bride-to-be Jas without any involvement from her.
Bobby had visions of tying the knot with Jas in a huge wedding themed on the doomed ship, because in his eyes, it’s the most “romantic” film ever.
When revealing his Titanic-themed wedding plans to his baffled friends, one even asked: “The ship that sank?”
Bobby said: “I personally love Titanic, it’s so romantic. We both love the film.”
Meanwhile Jas, was desperate for an intimate, small-scale event with a few of her nearest and dearest.
She said: “I just want it to be nice and classy and traditional. My ideal wedding would be a small do, just a local do with friends and family.”
But it soon became clear that her dreams would remain just that, when he decided to take the plunge for a huge wedding instead of the small cottage she wanted.
He plonked down £3,000 of his £13,000 budget on a grand London location for the ceremony that had a staircase similar to the famous one in the movie.
“It’s like we are in Kensington Palace”, the best man said.
Bobby also put down £1,975 for four hours on a boat for the reception on the Thames.
Having just three weeks to bring all the plans together, Bobby started to show signs of stress – particularly when it came to picking the dress.
Jas said her ideal gown was a classy, sophisticated low-cut gown that wasn’t too poofy, but Bobby had other ideas entirely.
He selected a high-necked gown that he felt fitted in with his Edwardian theme.
When she finally got a peek at the dress had chosen, she thankfully loved the design and said: “It’s really nice, I’m really surprised. I like it, he’s done good.”
She even loved the snug slippers he chose to go with the lacy dress.
But the bridesmaids were horrified when they saw the black and white sailor-themed dresses Bobby had bought off the internet.
One bridesmaid fumed: “Jas is going to go mad at you. If it’s black how is it not like a funeral? I’m really worried for Jasmine now.”
The girls refused to wear the dresses and said Jas wouldn’t have any sisters at the wedding.
His nautical theme appeared to sink at the first hurdle, when Jas refused to do the white water rafting hen do that Bobby had planned for her.
She broke down in tears and said: “I just don’t like swimming, I don’t know why he would do that. It’s dropped my confidence in letting him do this. I’m really disappointed.”
And things went from bad to worse when she saw photos from Bobby’s stag do, when he threw a huge house party at their house and was pictured hugging girls.
She fumed: “I’m not looking forward to any part of it. I’m feeling every bad emotion.”
However, things looked up on the day when she cried with happiness at the stunning wedding venue and heard the song she would be walking down the aisle to, My Heart Will Go On.
Next they headed to the for the reception and Jas was initially unsure, saying: “It’s a bit rocky!”
But she came round to the idea and even loved the moment Bobby took to the dance floor to do an irish jig – in keeping with the movie when Jack takes Rose below deck to an Irish party.
Jas gushed: “This isn’t the wedding I would have planned at all. But I’m so glad that you did it. It’s different. It’s a wedding to remember.”
Viewers were surprised at the unusual theme, with one writing: “I have a sinking feeling about this wedding.”
However, some were kinder to the groom, and one Twitter user wrote: “He’s actually done a good job for someone who can’t tie his shoelaces.”
