Comic Relief’s Four Weddings and a Funeral spin-off was praised for its beautiful and heartfelt scenes this evening as Lily James and Alicia Vikander’s characters married.
Hugh Grant and Kristin Scott Thomas returned this evening as Charles and Fiona – who also happened to be parents of both of the brides.
Wearing a gorgeous fluffy white outfit, Miranda (Lily) made her way down the aisle to meet Alicia’s character.
Most of the laughs came from bumbling Rowan Atkinson as the vicar, who struggled to get the pronouns right.
"We’ve come to witness the marriage of this man…s daughter to this woman…s daughter," he said awkwardly. "The gift of marriage brings… wife and wife together."
Facing Alicia, Miranda said: "I have known you since we were babies… my father knew your mother… I always knew I liked you. But one day you held my hand and one day you kissed me and my life changed."
"The first time I saw you we were in nappies," Alicia said. "We spent 10 years in the same school uniform. And one day I held your hand and something changed.
"The next day I kissed you, and everything changed. I thank god we’re not related!"
Priest Rowan finished as cringily as it began, saying: "The ceremony is now complete. And now I pronounce you man…magnificently wife and wife."
Afterwards was the drinks ceremony – queue more awkward conversation, including the return of Duckface, and some soppy speeches.
And fans loved it.
One tweeted: "That Four Weddings, just like the film, made me cry happy tears #ComicRelief2019."
While another commented: "OMG that was SOOOO good!!!! #onerednosedayandawedding #comicrelief2019."
