Starring Robert Webb (“Peep Show”, “That Mitchell and Webb Look”), Rufus Hound (“Celebrity Juice”) and Lucy Punch (Bad Teacher, You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger), The Wedding Video takes a comedic look at the cut throat world of English society weddings.
When the shambolic Raif (Hound) is asked to be his brother Tim’s (Webb) best man, he finds his once-bohemian brother is marrying into Cheshire’s most socially aspirant family.
Bride Saskia (Punch) has a grandmother (Miriam Margolyes) who would give Hyacinth Bucket a run for her money and mum Alex (Harriet Walter) has successfully married into life in the ‘Cheshire Set’ – the English ‘Beverley Hills’.
Raif’s present to the happy couple will be a video of their wedding. His film is our film – the final edited version with music, live action, interviews – the works.
Amidst the chaos of planning their big day and fending off unwanted help the couple begins to wonder ‘whose wedding is it anyway?’
THE WEDDING VIDEO is directed by Nigel Cole (Made in Dagenham, Calendar Girls), written by Tim Firth (Confessions of a Shopaholic, Calendar Girls), and produced by James Gay – Rees (Senna, Exit Through the Giftshop).
