BBC Studios proposes Irish wedding show

My Big Day, Home or Away was originally produced by Coco TV as a pilot on RTÉ2

BBC Studios has invested in a wedding format that aired on Irish pubcaster RTÉ and is preparing to roll it out to international buyers.

The pubcaster’s distribution arm, RTÉ Programme Sales, has partnered with BBC Studios for international sales of My Big Day, Home or Away.

BBC Studios has invested in the original format, securing global rights to both the format and the finished programmes in all territories outside of Ireland.

An original idea was developed in-house and premiered as a pilot on RTÉ2 in March, produced by Irish indie Coco TV. This led to a 4×60’ series commission for the show, which will air in the autumn.

In My Big Day: Home or Away, one couple is given the services of two top wedding planners, who compete to win the couple over. One planner arranges a wedding at home in Ireland, while the other plans one abroad and the couple choose which they prefer.

Nicki McDermott, head of formats, entertainment and factual entertainment at BBC Studios, said: “We’re delighted to be distributing My Big Day, Home or Away and look forward to seeing how it entertains audiences both in the UK and overseas. Feel-good formats are still so popular, so it’s great to have a show like this in our catalogue.”
