You may have recently watched the popular ‘Married at First Sight’ on Channel 9 and here at River 94.9 we’ve decided to do the complete opposite! We’re bringing you River 94.9’s Married at First Light where we’re set to marry a couple that have been together for a long period of time and have not yet tied the knot… and the wedding will be at first light.

From Monday May 8 to Thursday May 11, Marnie and Campo for Breakfast will call one couple that has entered throughout their show to find out about their relationship and why they haven’t taken that next step as yet… those very important steps down the aisle.

Each couple they speak to will be in the running to win River 94.9’s Married at First Light and secure a wedding almost completely taken care of.

We’ve got your wedding bands sorted from Springfield Jewellers at Orion Shopping Centre, your custom made jewellery and diamond specialist, and your wedding will take place at the amazing Branell Homestead in Laidley, offering luxurious country weddings and accommodation.

On top of that, we will have your dream wedding gown from White Lily Couture, the bridal party’s hair and makeup will be taken care of thanks to Underground Hair Culture, Baked By Brooke has your wedding cake sorted, Rod Neondeng will snap your wonderful wedding photographs, Stop and Smell the Roses Marburg will take care of your wedding flowers and Peter the Celebrant from Your Special Day – Marriage Celebrant will have you saying your “I do’s”.

On Friday 12th May, Marnie and Campo will announce one of the four couples as the winning couple who will secure themselves a wedding… a wedding day to remember.

The winning couples wedding will take place on Wednesday 21st June 2017, where Campo will broadcast live from 5am – 9am. The wedding itself will happen at ‘first light’, as soon as the sun rises on that morning.
