W channel commissions Wedding Valley

London - 27th June 2022 - UKTVs factual entertainment channel W has commissioned a brand new UKTV original series, Wedding Valley (10X60), an upbeat and inspiring look at the thriving wedding industry of Lancashires stunning Ribble Valley. Produced by Little Gem, Wedding Valley will document the highs and lows of some of the 1500 weddings that will take place during Ribble Valleys 2022 wedding season, with filming beginning at the end of May through to September.

The heart of Wedding Valley is rooted in several unique businesses who form part of the Ribble Valleys thriving wedding industry, from bridal shops, cake designers, florists, planners and co-ordinators. Each episode takes viewers through a typical week in peak wedding season, and all of the passion, drama and hard work that goes into making each couples wedding dreams a reality. Wedding Valley is commissioned for UKTV by Kirsty Hanson, commissioning editor, with Hilary Rosen, deputy director of commissioning and head of factual and factual entertainment, and ordered by Adam Collings, channel director for W. Richard Watsham is director of commissioning and Steve North is genre general manager, comedy and entertainment. Executive producer for Little Gem is Ben Gale and Series Producer is Tammy Hale.

Ws channel director, Adam Collings, said,

As a channel that delights in showing lifes authentic and unfiltered moments, Im thrilled to introduce W viewers to Wedding Valley. While the big day only lasts 24 hours for the varied range of couples, its a way of life for the companies, teams and families that work tirelessly to deliver them. We cant wait to meet them all and see their perspective of these life-changing moments.

Kirsty Hanson, UKTV commissioning editor, said,

The Ribble Valley is the UKs wedding hotspot and with its warm and talented wedding-obsessed workforce it is the most perfect place to set a wedding series for W. Love is most definitely in the air in Wedding Valley, but so is professional pride and competition, and the series will give viewers a unique insight into all the drama of the wedding industry.

Natasha Bondy, Little Gem creative director said

Were delighted to be working with UKTV on bringing Ribble Valleys stunning scenery, and dramatic and diverse wedding stories to W viewers. Our amazing cast are hard-working and heart-warming and we cant wait for everyone to see what a fun, warm and compelling show Wedding Valley is set to be.

Wedding Valley will air on UKTVs free-to-air channel W joining a slate of new original programming recently announced including, Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over USA, Emma Willis: Delivering Babies, Rochelle Humes: Interior Designer in the Making and The Beauty Rewind Clinic. Wedding Valley will also be available on UKTV Play.
