Married Behind Bars takes the plunge with three American brides who have decided to tie the knot while their other half is inside. Two million couples get married in the USA every year and, in California alone, an estimated 1,800 weddings take place in prison. But can you enjoy what’s supposed to be the happiest day of your life when there is a minefield of necessary prison regulations and restrictions to negotiate?
Following three very different couples, Married Behind Bars goes into the heart of the US prison wedding community which can involve strict dress codes, bride and groom walking down the aisle via an x-ray machine and the first kiss taking place through bullet-proof glass.
