FIRST LOOK Married at First Sight UK

Wedding bells are ringing as Married at First Sight UK prepares to land on E4 very soon and it's time to meet the brides and grooms.


Taking inspiration from the hugely successful Australian version, this new UK series is set to be a bigger and more dramatic take on the format, following a fresh batch of singles as they search for love and a happy-ever-after with complete strangers.


Across 21 episodes, this series will follow 8 couples as they meet for the very first time at the alter!



Following the Australian format, rather than legal marriages, the couples will make a lifelong commitment to one another at a glamorous ceremony, overseen by a wedding celebrant, that includes guests, bridal gowns, dancing, speeches and cake.


After the ceremony and celebrations are over, true love is well and truly put to the test, as they embark on a luxurious honeymoon, before moving in with each other and their fellow couples.


Relationships will be put under the microscope, by fellow brides and grooms at weekly dinner parties, as well as by the experts at recurring commitment ceremonies where couples choose whether they want to stay in or leave the process.


All this and more will build to a dramatic series finale; glossy, high-stakes vow renewals, in which each couple must decide if they will recommit to their partner or go their separate ways.


No-nonsense Married at First Sight Australia expert Mel Schilling and Sex and Relationship Therapist, Charlene Douglas will be joining returning star Paul C. Brunson for this brand-new series.


Mel and Paul will be tasked with matching a group of singles hoping to find love when they meet for the first time at the altar, whilst Charlene works with the couples as they navigate their new relationships and get to know their partners on a more intimate level.


Keep scrolling to meet the brides, grooms and experts for this brand-new series of Married at First Sight UK and E4 have confirmed that they will not be announcing the couples until the evening of their TX.


Meet the brides...


Alexis

28, Model, London


"I’ve applied to this to find the good guy, to find someone genuine and someone who wants commitment. I give my all and I’m very supportive. I’m looking for someone on my wavelength and I want someone who is going to take the reins a little bit."

Amy

34, Sports Journalist, Cornwall


"With Married At First Sight UK, either I’m going to find the love of my life

or I’m going to learn a really big lesson from it, which might lead me to the love of my life."


Amy was raised in Cornwall by her parents alongside her grandmother who championed her 10-year glamour modelling career.


With sports in her genes, she soon made it her main passion in life and now works as a sports presenter, using various platforms to discuss football and her favourite team, Chelsea FC.


Amy sees Married at First Sight UK as an opportunity to finally try and let down her guard. She wants to learn what love is and take off the veneer of sassiness that has protected her from letting another person in.



Marilyse

37, Personal Trainer, Yorkshire


"I would love to go through the experiment to the very end and still be with the guy. That is what I want to happen and what I expect to happen. I will be a bit disappointed if it doesn’t happen, but we’ll have to wait and see."


The elegant Marilyse describes herself as strong, switched on and very positive.


This Yorkshire lass lives a very sporty lifestyle and fitness means everything to her. She needs an old-fashioned manly man who is full of passion and energy otherwise she gets bored.


She wants to find her teammate in life who she can conquer the world with! They’ve just got to get her two sons’ approval first, who are keen for their mum to be with someone, but they have a lot of thoughts on who that should be.


The perfect guy for Marilyse would be a man who is strong-minded and strong-willed. She is looking for her best friend and soul mate.
