Married at First Sight UK bride Laura fumes as she sees her husband Arthur for first time at the altar – as viewers are left horrified by their vows
Married at First Sight UK viewers were left fuming during the opening episode of the eighth series on Monday night as Laura was left disappointed with her groom Arthur.
The finance manager, 34, made no secret of the fact she likes ‘the finer things in life’, admitting she spends most of her weekends in the upmarket bars of London’s Chelsea.
Laura, who describes herself as a ‘boss b**tch’, insisted she was ready to throw herself into the experiment after her former marriage ended after 10 months, however she felt let down when she was matched with tennis coach Arthur, 34.
Polish-born Arthur came to the UK when he was 16 and decided to pull his vows directly from the internet, claiming his English was not up to scratch for him to write them himself.
And he left Laura and her friends cringing when he told her he loved her at the end of his vows despite having met Laura just minutes earlier.

Awkward: Polish-born Arthur came to the UK when he was 16 and decided to pull his vows directly from the internet, claiming his English was not up to scratch for him to write them
While the moment may have been awkward, many viewers took to Twitter to vent their frustration at Laura’s treatment of Arthur, branding her a ‘snob’.
One person wrote: ‘I mean your marrying a stranger, I think saying I love you is the last of your problems.’
While someone else shared: ‘This girl actually basing her LIFE LONG partner on his accent and which bars he goes to?!?! Seriously?’
Someone else posted: ‘Nah why didn’t she go and audition for Made In Chelsea? She’s definitely going to waste Arthur’s time.’
And another viewer remarked: ‘Laura is a snob poor Arthur.’
Someone else shared: ‘How long until Laura says “he’s not what I ordered”?’
While another viewer wrote: ‘I’ll take Arthur off you Laura! Doing you a favour.’
‘Arthur could have written the absolute best possible vows and Laura still wouldn’t have been happy,’ posted another show fan, while someone else echoed: ‘Laura’s vows, “don’t talk to me before my oat milk latte” Arthur’s vows, “I love you”.’

Someone else joked: ‘Arthur should Google how to get Laura to leave before the honeymoon.’
While another viewer insisted: ‘Arthur’s internet vows are exactly what Laura deserves after the way she has spoken about him (and everyone else who isn’t a clone of her in man form). You go Arthur because she sure ain’t going to put the effort into you.’
After Laura set eyes on Arthur, she insisted her ‘very firm criteria has not been met’, while she later said in a piece to camera that Arthur is not as ‘posh’ as her usual type.
She explained: ‘He is definitely an attractive guy for sure. But he doesn’t look like a Chelsea boy.
‘I love a posh accent. Very firm criteria has not been met.’
And show fans were left unimpressed by Laura’s vows, in which she told Arthur: ‘I promise to appreciate you as much as I appreciate my first oat milk latter of the morning.
‘Please don’t talk to me before I’ve had it.’
Meanwhile, show fans already appear to have found a favourite couple in the form of sales executive Luke, 30, and sales manager Jay, 31.
