‘Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings’ Returns to Freeform With All-New Episodes Premiering June 11

“Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings” returns for a six-episode series on MONDAY, JUNE 11 (8:00 p.m. EDT), with eleven new couples, surprise musical performances, unexpected appearances, captivating celebrations, and of course, lots of Disney magic. From epic hidden camera engagements to romantic fairy tale weddings, each episode will showcase enchanting stories and spectacular settings from Disney destinations around the globe. Hosted by real-life couple Stephen “tWitch” Boss (“The Ellen Show”) and Allison Holker (“Dancing with the Stars”), the series goes inside the intimate plans of each couple as they celebrate their unique love stories with the help of Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons.

With stunning venues at the Walt Disney World Resort; Disneyland Resort; Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa; on Disney Cruise Line ships and more hosting these momentous occasions, each celebration is meticulously planned with heartfelt detail and unforgettable moments for each couple. Two special couples have stories that tie them to stunning musical performances by superstar Olivia Newton-John and country music sensation Hunter Hayes. And, a sports-obsessed couple gets the opportunity of a lifetime when the NHL’s Stanley Cup, one of the most iconic and oldest trophies in professional sports, makes a rare appearance at their reception.  

With a career spanning over five decades and more than 100 million albums sold, Newton-John’s successes include four GRAMMYs®, an Emmy®, numerous music awards and more than 15 top 10 singles. Her co-starring role in “Grease” catapulted her into super-stardom and, to date, remains the most successful movie musical of all time. In 1992, and again in 2017, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer, a cause very near and dear to one “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings” couple. Her personal journey with cancer led her to announce her partnership with Austin Health and the creation of the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre (ONJCWRC). After nearly ten years of fundraising for $200 million, the ONJCWRC opened its doors in 2012. The Centre provides a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training and research as well as a dedicated wellness center (ONJCancerCentre.org).

Multi-platinum recording artist Hunter Hayes has accumulated over 40 award nominations and wins, including five GRAMMY nominations. His hit single “Wanted” became his first No. 1 single on the country airplay charts and solidified the multi-instrumentalist as the youngest solo male artist to top Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart in over 40 years. Chosen as the first-dance song for a newly wedded couple, Hayes surprises a completely shocked bride and groom with a live performance of “Wanted” at their wedding reception at Pioneer Hall at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort.
