As always Mí na Meala features Irish Married Couples who met in the 50’s, 60's, 70’s and the 80’s reminiscing on their courtship, their wedding and their honeymoon. The series gently touches on travel, changing times, the evolution of marriage and relationship, changing cultures, history, gentle humor and will aim to entertain a broad, prime time audience of all ages.
It is a nostalgic trip down memory lane for the couples but is also a opportunity for us to look at the way marriage, the vows and the build up to marriage has changed, how the preparation has changed, how prices have changed, how choice has changed … Not alone are we on a journey back with the couples but also we cleverly examine the changes that have taken place over time for the Couples and Marriage in general.
Part One features the initial contact with the couple as they take us through their first meeting, their courtship and their marriage day, using photos, video footage and other memorabilia blended with time appropriate archive. Part Two sees us taking the couple on a visit back to where they had their honeymoon, allowing them to recall special places or moments from that time and examining changes which have happened in the meantime.
