Every couple has a story, one to tell of how they met, what makes one’s partner the ultimate companion and how simple feelings turned into a life time commitment. The Love Story is Uganda’s freshest and most dynamic wedding show that celebrates love, but in addition, the events that come along with every wedding.
It isn’t you regular wedding show. Unlike, what’s on TV today, The Love Story takes the bold step of going behind the scenes to show you all the pain, drama and excitement that goes into planning the perfect wedding. The show takes us through a couple’s journey to their wedding day; everything from choosing the venue, church rehearsals, gown shopping, to finally walking down the aisle. Each episode follows one couple as we discover their story, how they met, why their getting married whilst simultaneously following them through their marriage preparations. It’s a possibly brilliant mash up of Reality TV and a genuine love story rolled into one. It’s brought together elegantly with the stellar directing and production brilliance of Media 256 that aims for this show to put Ugandan content on the map and create a benchmark for the local TV industry.
The pilot episode features a young couple, Chris and Eve. Chris had a huge crush on Eve since he first saw her on Campus. With the help of a mutual friend, he managed to get her to go on a blind date with him. Eve accepted, not knowing who it was until the moment he came to pick her. They hit it off immediately and have been going ever since.
Eve is a warm caring reserved lady, whereas Chris is the more playful and romantic type, constantly surprising Eve with romantic gestures such as getting her favourite artist, Rema, to perform at their wedding completely without her knowledge. Chris proposed to Eve at a party she was actually organizing and side from a few hiccups with the groom’s suit, the wedding was an extreme success.
These are not just love stories, they are stories of happiness, excitement, hope, disappointments and bittersweet emotional moments.
This is The Love Story!
The Love Story will air on Urban Television on Sunday at 4pm (East African Time).
