Time to say “I Do” to the perfect wedding venue with the return of WHERE TO I DO?, Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET, premiering June 9 on CTV Life Channel. Co-produced by Bell Media Studios and Motion Content Group, the 30-minute series, follows Canadian property and design expert Tommy Smythe as he helps couples navigate the often difficult search for the wedding venue of their dreams. Nominated for two trophies during this week’s Canadian Screen Awards, the series has reached over 5.5 million Canadians across all airings since its series debut in 2018.
Following new episodes of WHERE TO I DO?, the hit wedding series I DO, REDO with Jessica Mulroney joins the lineup at 9:30 p.m., making Tuesdays on CTV Life Channel the ultimate destination for wedding themed TV this spring.
Taped before the COVID-19 pandemic, the eight-episode third season of WHERE TO I DO? heads to Ireland as its first international destination outside of North America, before also visiting California, Montréal, New Orleans, and Toronto. While couples continue to have their weddings delayed as the world waits to return to normal, the series hopes to encourage couples to think outside the box when it comes to location and venue.
Seasons 1 and 2 of the series, which is seen in international markets including Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, Hong Kong, Hungary, Italy, Latin America, Norway, Poland, and others, is currently streaming on Crave.
“I am so grateful to have worked with such special couples over the past three seasons to make their wedding dreams a reality,” said Tommy Smythe, host and design expert. “Location is the most important piece of any wedding, and I can’t wait for you to see the unique spaces we have sourced this season from around the world.”
In each episode, Smythe uses state-of-the-art 3D renders to bring the spaces to life, helping each couple understand how their wedding venue can be transformed to match their personal style. Once the couple’s decision is made, the episode culminates with an epic wedding-day reveal of the chosen venue.
In the Season 3 premiere of WHERE TO I DO? (June 9 at 9 p.m. ET), Josh and Andee are a music festival-loving couple that wants their Emerald Isle destination wedding to feel like the ultimate fairy tale weekend celebration. Josh is a self-proclaimed “fantasy nerd” and refers to Andee as his “Irish princess”. While they are both totally on board with Ireland as their destination, Andee and Josh actually have very different visions for the day itself. Josh is ready to nerd out and envisions a deep, dark-looking medieval wedding with a sword fight. For Andee, an old-world Irish venue is enough medieval for her wedding day – she is dreaming of a white, bright, and modern wedding. Smythe has the difficult task of blending their two visions, medieval and modern, so these two can celebrate their happily ever after in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
