The winning couple would then board a plane and be whisked off on a romantic honeymoon.
But producers had decided to ditch that element and instead offer the winners £50,000 in cash to spend how they please.
In the event of a tie, it would've been split evenly.
Four Weddings originally aired on Sky Living from 2009 to 2013, with repeats being broadcast on other channels.
