‘I was at a reception.
Naturally, on the table where they put the divorced, the widowed, the gay...the low marriage potential crowd!’
Taking her place in church amongst the usual screaming babies and half whispered vows, little does Sally know that she is about to find love herself at the reception. Meanwhile at home, her devoted parents’ marriage faces the toughest of challenges. With wedding bells ringing in their ears, the entire family is brought face to face with the meaning of true love and commitment in an age of brief encounters and one-night stands with both funny and poignant results.
WEDDING STORY is a sparkling comedy of wedding days and life-long responsibilities, told with great wit and flair by one of Britain’s most distinctive writers.
