London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) April 16, 2009 -- Founder of TheChiefBridesmaid.co.uk and wedding crunch expert, Lucy Elliott has been appointed as the presenter of Wedding TV's first commission aimed at Brides
getting married during the credit crunch. The 12-part series which is being developed under the working title of Beat the Budget - the Wedding challenge is due to air on digital tv channel, Wedding TV in the Autumn.
Lucy said, "I'm absolutely thrilled to be presenting this brand new series for Wedding TV. Today's engaged couples are worried about keeping their jobs, nevermind
planning expensive weddings and so I think it's the perfect time for a show that caters to credit crunch brides. Ultimately, I hope viewers will take out that it doesn't matter how much you spend on your wedding - if the man's perfect, your big day will be too."
Lucy founded TheChiefBridesmaid.co.uk last year specifically for couples planning their wedding during the recession. TheChiefBridesmaid.co.uk offers free moneysaving advice to help Brides and Grooms' wedding budgets go further in the credit crunch. As well as guidance on how couples can save money on all aspects of their wedding day, it lists the latest Wedding-related sales, discounts and special offers available in the market.
Lucy had previously worked as a Brand Manager for ITV and at advertising agencies such as AMV BBDO and Rapier within account management.
