THE WEDDING VIDEO is a comedy set in the cut throat world of English society weddings.
RAIF (Rufus Hound) is a shambolic oaf with a unique sense of humour who is suddenly asked to be his brother’s best man. His present to the happy couple, he decides, will be a video of their wedding. He returns from abroad to meet brother TIM (Robert Webb) for the first time in years and his fiancé SASKIA (Lucy Punch).
His film is our film – the final edited version with music, live action, interviews, the works. It’s the wedding equivalent of Spinal Tap. And thank God Raif caught it all on film, because no-one would have believed it otherwise. Amidst the chaos of planning their big day and fending off unwanted help the couple begin to wonder ‘who’s wedding is it anyway?’
