Our Gay Wedding: The Musical

Channel 4 has unveiled a snippet of ‘Our Gay Wedding: The Musical’, which will air at 10pm this monday evening.

The programme, hosted by Stephen Fry, is the work of grooms Benjamin Till and Nathan Taylor, who decided to write and stage their real wedding as a musical.

The clip features a guest appearance from Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow, just one of many famous guests who will make an appearance.

The wedding, which took place at Alexandra Palace on Saturday, includes sung readings and vows, and features the whole congregation of family, friends and special guests, including Gok Wan, actress Julie Hesmondhalgh, Peter Tatchell, former Equalities minister Lynne Featherstone, and Pink News publisher Benjamin Cohen.

The programme will also include special messages for the couple from Boy George, Will Young, Paul O’Grady, Olivia Newton John, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband, and performances from The Feeling, Erasure singer Andy Bell and The London Gay Men’s Chorus, among others.

  2. This is from Robin Dinzeo (on Facebook) who has a different opinion of the show and suggested that I post this here:
    "Eddi this show was awful and tacky, I did a post and here is what I wrote to Joe to sum it up..... Joe well this couple got really married and wrote the musical from mothers singing to old famous pop stars to tv stars to opera stars. They Milked it for it was worth. It was very tacky and for people looking in gave the stereotypical appeal all gay people are musical loving queens who should be thankful for gay marriage in England. I spoke to two friends who both watched it one straight and one gay and both said why did it need two hours ..... it was dire and when one groom sang to the other it was vomit inducing not romantic or caring. They may have well sold their soul to the devil and made it a game show..."
