“And Emma has always dreamt of being a Disney princess, but will her surprise talent leave everyone speechless?” -synopsis for Australia’s Cheapest Weddings.
A Queensland couple who feature in tomorrow night’s episode of Australia’s Cheapest Weddings are unhappy with the way they have been depicted in Seven promos.
At the wedding for the Maryborough couple Emma Dilliway, Emma can be seen singing “The Power of Love” to her groom Steven. So far the clip has attracted over 1.2m social media plays and plenty of mocking.
“I’m just shocked – I didn’t expect it to get a thousands views, but a million views is just crazy,” Emma told Fraser Coast News.
“I have pretty much been in tears the last few days and I haven’t wanted to go outside.
“They have taken a tiny bit of the day that just makes Steven and I’s wedding look really, really bad.
“They turned our special day into a joke.”
She said the clip edited out the background music, while New Idea and the Daily Mail have also referred to “Bride’s cringeworthy songs horrifies groom” and “the bridesmaids also seemed confused by the performance”.
“Initially I thought it would be a great experience to have them there,” Steven said.
“To receive the amount of negative flak over it has been horrible, considering the episode hasn’t even aired yet.”
