Married At First Sight UK is officially back on our screens for another season of weddings, dinner parties, commitment ceremonies and more and we can't wait.

The dating series, which sees expertly matched couples meet for the first time on their wedding day, began on 18th September and we've already seen two, new couples walk down the aisle.

With those lavish wedding ceremonies, we can't help but wonder, who exactly pays for them? Is it the brides and grooms themselves or the production company? Here's what we know.

In case you haven't caught up yet, in episode one of the new season, we meet the new brides and grooms at their hen and stag dos as well as two couples, Luke and Jay and Laura and Arthur.

Their wedding ceremonies looked super lavish with beautiful venues, floral arrangements and more. And, it was pretty much all paid and arranged for by production, with brides and grooms having some input.

"We could actually choose the stuff we wanted in our wedding," Luke told Cosmopolitan UK. "Me and my wife, Jay, we would have [been] sent the same questionnaire and then, they would have matched anything we both chose and put that in the wedding."

"The flower arrangements and the colour schemes is what I picked," he added.

Clark, who appeared in season two of the show, also previously told Cosmopolitan UK that there was a small budget for their wedding days on the show.

"There’s budget for things, her wedding dress, a small budget for the suits," he said. "There are six options of lots of different things – type of food, music, style and theme of wedding."
