When it comes to weddings, many people want to pull out all the stops — you (ideally) should only get one, after all.

So who can blame one man for attempting to book the ultimate venue for his big day?

Unfortunately for Walker, however, his wish was not granted.

The couple feature on an episode of UK TV show "Don't Tell The Bride," in which grooms plan whole weddings and the brides are kept completely in the dark.

In Harry and Charlotte's episode of the E4 programme, the groom attempts to book both the Queen's residence and then Windsor Castle, which is where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot.

Father-of-three Walker was told that Windsor Castle only host royal weddings, so he settled for a Tudor Palace in Essex called Layer Marney Tower, which cost £3,750 ($4,900), the Daily Mail reports.

The groom also attempted to recreate the Sussexes' nuptials by choosing a dress inspired by Markle's complete with a 197-inch veil.

He also booked a finishing school for her bachelorette party.

Needless to say, Charlotte was not impressed.
