South African TV's obsession with filming weddings has been ramped up yet again and this time it's on the channel that first introduced the phenomenon.
Flashback to SABC3's The Wedding Show in 2003.

The channel's latest instalment is called Married in a Flash and the search is on for couples who want to do just that.
The series is looking for couples who are either engaged or in a committed relationship who want to tie the knot in three days.
The bonus: the show's going to pay for it.
Each couple will get R75,000 to spend on a wedding of their choice BUT it all has to happen in 72 hours.
Cameras are going to follow the chosen couples from the day of receiving the money. They have to plan the wedding, decide on the guest list, organise etc. and everything will be filmed, including the wedding.
If this appeals to you, you can apply to be on the show by e-mailing the production at: or by calling them on (010) 594 5127.

The show will premiere on the channel in a flash too - in October.

We've asked the production and this is what you can expect from the process: once you've mailed them, they'll send you a form and a video questionnaire to fill in. Have you receieved these?

Once you've sent these back to them, the production will consider your application and will be in touch if you're selected to be on the show. They won't be in touch by e-mail though... they're going to surprise those who've been chosen by telling them in the flesh so you'll know you're on the show if they suddenly pitch up on your doorstep.

And the first to get married are...

... Mark and Sheila.

They met on a dating app - probably Tinder - and Mark wanted to get married in court but Sheila wanted a dream wedding so she entered the show and voila!

Hi there, I am very much interested, and the minute I heard about the show I called in October and was told by the lady who answered the phone that everyone has gone shooting and that she could not assist me. I took the email address and emailed twice but never got any response :-(

Mnxim 70% of all these wedding took place in the east rand. You are judged by how you look not by your story. Your applying like a it's a vacant position that needs to be filled.
