BSS Industrial bride puts future husband to the test for BBC show

The thought of leaving wedding preparations down to the groom is most bride-to-be’s worst nightmare, but brave BSS Industrial employee Kaleigh Candlish left every last detail to her husband Simon Candlish for BBC Three’s ‘Don’t Tell The Bride’.

Kaleigh, who works in the Branch Services Team for BSS Industrial, beat thousands of hopefuls to star in the show. The series features future brides who are kept in the dark about their wedding in return for a handsome budget of £12,000. Staying apart from her partner for three weeks, Kaleigh wasn’t allowed to plan any part of her big day. From the $16 Wal-Mart cake to the wedding dress, veil and tiara, Kaleigh’s faith in her husband to be was definitely put to the test in the twists and turns that unravel in the show.

Kaleigh said: “Participating in the show and having my wedding viewed by millions of people was frightening enough, let alone not having any say in what it was going to be like! I won’t say anymore in case people tune in but it was a great experience and definitely a wedding day never to forget.”

Kaleigh and Simon Candlish’s appearance on BBC Three’s ‘Don’t Tell The Bride is  available to view on online on BBC iPlayer at For more information on BSS Industrial log on to or call 0116 262 3232. BSS Industrial is part of The BSS Group plc, a market leading distributor to specialist trades.
