Love is Blind producer reveals truth behind Giannina’s wedding dress blunder

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers from episodes one to eleven of Love Is Blind. 

Giannina Gibelli’s wedding to Damian Powers was quite the spectacle, but away from the wedding the eagle-eyed viewers noticed a continuity issue with the bride’s dress. Fans were devastated when Giannina took a tumble after running out of the wedding venue, muddying her pure white gown in the process, but a producer from Love is Blind has now revealed all.

Giannina and Damian were one of the pairs who fell in love in the ‘pods’ before deciding to get engaged. 

Theirs was an unconventional proposal, as Giannina interrupted Damian asking her to marry her, and in turn asking him to marry her. 

It wasn’t all smooth sailing for the love-birds and the two shared a number of bust-ups between the proposals and saying ‘I Do’.

And at the last minute, Damian refused to agree to the lifelong commitment of marriage and understandably, Giannina was furious, heartbroken and stormed out of the venue.

Netflix viewers watched as Giannina ran away from the room full of guests, down the road and tumbled into the shrubbery. 

The business owner got mud down the side of her dress, but viewers were left confused when she returned to the church without any visible mud on the garment.

Producer, Chris Coelen, has now cleared up the confusion, he told Metro.co.uk: “What you see, and what we’re able to show on the show is a condensed version of what happened.

“The run out of the venue, down that driveway, out into the parking lot next door… No one expected that.

“She was out there for half an hour with her mum in that parking lot. 45 minutes, maybe even an hour, that’s a long time. 

“She then came back to the venue, they went up to Gigi’s bridal quarters. 

“You’ll notice when Damian and Gigi reunite in that scene, all the chairs are packed up. All of the guests are there, and all of the chairs, when she’s running out.”

He went on to explain the time between her leaving and returning to talk to Damian was a good couple of hours. 

She went back into the house with her mum who took her straight to the bridal suite.

Chris went on to say, viewers didn’t get to see the clean up purely because they had to fit a huge amount of footage into an hour and a half show. 

He said: “We could have done a three-hour special just on the Gigi and Damian wedding, truly. We only have so much time to tell a story.

This dramatic exit from Giannina wasn’t the end of her love story with Damian though. 

In the reunion episode, which aired on Netflix last week, Giannina revealed that she and Damian were dating. 

The two were able to accept their fiery personalities and work it out, but the same couldn’t be said for a lot of the other couples. 

Only two of the ‘pod’ couples actually managed to tie the knot, with a lot of hostility between the rest of them.

But could viewers see a UK Love is Blind anytime soon?
