As per the government and public health guidelines on mass gathering during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many couples across the UK have unfortunately had to take the decision to postpone their wedding.

Now, as part of a proposed new TV show set to be called 'Wedding in Lockdown', Channel 4 has put out a casting call and is looking for these exact couples.

The premise of the show will see the chosen pair taking part in a wedding ceremony in their own home.

The casting call for "fun loving couples" was put out on the Film & TV Casting Calls UK Facebook page in a post that read: "We’re looking for a fun loving couple for a new TV show for Channel 4."

"Have you had to cancel your wedding due to Covid-19? Are you unsure what to do?"

“Channel 4, with the help of a celebrity cupid and some special guests, are looking to bring a much needed wedding back to life and offer one special couple the opportunity to have a virtual ceremony they’ll never forget in their own home, with family and friends watching and celebrating online.”

The ceremony will be streamed live online to family and friends, who will also star in the show, and will then be broadcast to the nation at a later date. It's also rumoured that some celebrity guests may be in attendance too, although they have not been revealed quite yet.

It is important to note that, due to marital licencing laws which prohibit weddings taking place at home, it has been clarified that the ceremony will not result in a legally binding marriage.

A release date for the show has not yet been announced.
