Love Island Stars Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen Announce Exciting Wedding Show

by rima@hitched

Love Island stars Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen have announced that their upcoming September wedding will be filmed and exclusively aired on TLC.

The one-off show, Olivia & Alex Said Yes is set to follow the pair as they plan their wedding whilst both managing busy careers in the limelight. The show will air snippets of the hen and stag parties along with a sneak peek into their ceremony and reception and will air within days of the big day.

Speaking about the show, Olivia said: “It feels right sharing our big day and having the cameras there given how we got together in the first place. I just hope I can keep my inner Bridezilla at bay and enjoy every part of the wedding.”

Agreeing with his fiancée, Alex added: “I also hope Olivia keeps her inner Bridezilla at bat! I’m quickly realising there’s a lot that goes into planning a wedding. She’s doing most of that and I’m doing what I’m told.”

The loved-up pair met on reality show Love Island in the summer of 2016. Proving that they were the real deal, Alex’s romantic proposal came just six months after the show ended whilst the couple were on a festive trip in New York City.
