The story line is about the bachelor arranging the wedding…EVERYTHING from invites, legal aspects, clothing, jewelry, bachelor parties (clean), wedding planning, food and beverage, venue, the actual wedding day and ceremony, as well as the honeymoon.

Barbeque Da Island Style

The BBQ da Island Style series promises to be of  high quality and production value. The concept is simple, travel to the most exotic locations on earth, and BBQ various dishes, with the locals. Food and produce will be sourced from local markets, as well as collected from the ocean. The series will have some serious adventure element to it, as the presenter will search for food in the ocean by diving and fishing.

African BBQ Hunter

In this series we will show viewers various dishes that can be prepared by hunters in the field/bush on the BBQ.
