During the episode, Mark was left panicked after realising he did not have the correct shirt for his wedding day, causing him to be late for the service.
For sometime, it seemed Mark was not going to turn up to the wedding without the shirt he wanted, however, was happy to walk down the aisle once it had arrived at the venue.
Mark also shared his disappointment with the cameras over the partner the experts had picked for him, explaining that he didn't feel an immediate spark between them.

The message tells Mark he "deserves love and happiness" before addicting that "folks forget how heavily the show is edited".
While Sean appeared happy with his match on their wedding day, Mark told the cameras: "I wanted that initial attraction, I wanted that spark straight away and it hasn't come."
Mark was also disappointed when he saw Sean was wearing a black suit to the wedding, saying: "A black suit is not the one, who has died? We've just started something new and you're wearing black!"
