"My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" (TLC TV show) introduces viewers to the hidden world of gypsies with two projects that share the culture and traditions of this highly secretive community. The series is based upon "Big Fat Gypsy Weddings," which originally premiered in the UK, becoming Channel 4's highest rated documentary series of all time, averaging more than 9 million viewers.

The series paints a visually arresting portrait of the secretive, extravagant and surprising world of gypsies and travellers in Britain today. Gaining rare access to this community, the series uses the prism of the weddings to reveal a community that lives alongside but detached from mainstream society. It is a community of contrasts, living by centuries-old religious and cultural traditions but at the same time embracing the flashier side of the celebrity and fashion-focused times in which we live.

"My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" is produced by Firecracker Films.
