BIG FAT GYPSY WEDDINGS FINAL: Bride & Prejudice
The final film in the series uncovers the prejudice against the travelling community in Britain today. But discrimination is nothing new to the travellers and their seclusion from mainstream society seems to be their only defence. Dressmaker Thelma has to make a dress for a bride who won’t even tell her when the wedding is for fear the venue finds out she’s a traveller and cancels the booking. She’s right to be concerned as another bride, 19-year-old Irish traveller Bridget, has already had her wedding venues cancelled three times.
