Mr Porter: [while stroking his ailing sow's neck] Tell me, what's the most important question you should ask yourself before getting married?
Dr. Martin Ellingham: [while examining the sow] I have my finger in your pig's anus!
Mr Porter: You want me to help you, then I'd dare to humor me.
Dr. Martin Ellingham: Does she make me happy?
Mr Porter: No, close. Very close. Would almost give you that. Actually, go to the wrong way up. It's do I make her happy? End of the day, that's all it's about.

Convergence of everything wrong...
26 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Apparently, Louisa and Martin are not going to wait very long until they wed. So, this episode consists of them rushing like mad to get the wedding completed. However, as they want many of the traditional trappings of a wedding, it's tough--and now EVERYTHING that could possibly go wrong seems to be going wrong. The vicar is a nasty alcoholic and Martin injures him...twice. The wedding reception is going to be at Burt Large's restaurant and the plumbing goes crazy and floods the place. The florist is arrested and sent off to jail--and the flowers are locked in his shop. The matron of honor is hit in the eye and needs to wear an eye patch. And, the list goes on and on.... Could this all just be God's way of warning the couple NOT to marry?!

This is a jam-packed show--with an amazing script with lots of insane moments interwoven within it. Very entertaining though I must admit that the ending is a bit of a downer.
