Ah, weddings. Orchestrated tear-jerking crap designed for tax benefits and socially acceptable baby making, surely ripe for ripping apart again in mockumentary fashion. Three couples, three weddings and one magazine's "most original wedding" contest set the stage for nudists, musical lovers and tennis players to fight tooth and (painted) nail for, you guessed it, a big house. Green Wing and Spaced fans will flock to this since half the cast is drawn from said shows, likewise should you. Highlights are the full-on improv dialogue and the unmissable Jason Watkins ('Bridget Jones 2') and Vincent Franklin ('Vera Drake') as a pair of Gilbert & George-esque wedding planners. God bless; the weddings we love are still as gay as ever. [David Winton]
