In the original film, the invitation to Charles’ wedding to to Henrietta AKA Duckface was obscured. 

Another nod to the original sees Elton John’s version of Gershwin’s But Not For Me played over the opening scene of the trailer, which was heard when Charles and Scarlett overslept before the nuptials of Angus and Laura in Four Weddings.

The plot for the long-awaited sequel to Four Weddings has been kept a closely guarded secret, but it is rumoured to feature a wedding between Charles and Carrie’s daughter, played by Lily James, and Alicia Vikander.

Lily, 29, and 30-year-old Alicia’s starring roles were confirmed on Friday.  

Richard Curtis, who wrote the original film and is the co-founder of Red Nose Day said: ‘I am delighted to finally be able to reveal that Lily James and Alicia Vikander appear as our very special guests in One Red Nose Day And A Wedding. 

‘I can’t wait for audiences to tune in and discover what’s happening to our characters and their families 25 years on.’

Original cast members Rowan Atkinson (Father Gerald), David Haig (Bernard), Sophie Thompson (Lydia), David Bower (David), Robin McCaffrey (Serena), Anna Chancellor (Henrietta), Rupert Vansittart (George), Simon Kunz (John), Sara Crowe (Laura) and Timothy Walker (Angus) will appear in the sequel.   

Four Weddings director Mike Newell has also returned to direct the new film.                    

Last month Comic Relief released the first look at the anticipated short film.  

Anna Chancellor  makes an appearance, standing next to Hugh, whose character Charles’ dumped her Duckface at the alter at the conclusion to the film.

Rowan Atkinson is still lending his comedy talents to weddings, in costume as Father Gerald, while Sophie Thompson and David Haig are also back as Lydia and Bernard.


Stars: Lily James and Alicia Vikander’s starring roles in the sequel were confirmed on Friday, with their characters rumoured to be tying the knot

Charles’ best friends Matthew, played by John Hannah, and Tom, played by James Fleet, make up the group shot.   

It hasn’t been confirmed though if Carrie remained with Charles, and is therefore the mother of the bride.  

Lily was spotted on set with Hugh when filming took place across a week in December.    

Kristin Scott Thomas’ real life son is also making an appearance in the new short set 25 years on, playing unlucky in love Fiona’s son, with a photo showing the handsome offspring chatting to cast on set dressed in a smart suit to play an usher.   

There will be a notable absence from the cast though as sadly Charlotte Coleman who played Charles’ flatmate Scarlett died in 2001.

Simon Callow will also be skipping out on an appearance as his character Gareth famously dies during the original film.    

The original film ended with Hugh’s Charles finally getting together with Carrie, played by Andie, after calling of his wedding to Henrietta.    

Four Weddings and a Funeral was made in just six weeks and cost under £3 million, but became the highest-grossing British film in history at the time, with worldwide box office takings in excess of $245.7 million.   

The film was also nominated for the Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay Oscars and picked up multiple Golden Globes and BAFTAs.

It also launched the international career of leading man Hugh, and his huge success as a romantic comedy icon.

His fame also soared thanks to the premiere of Four Weddings, which saw his then unknown girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley wow in the now iconic Versace safety-pin dress.

Andie meanwhile achieved her first major box office success with the movie, along with her other early nineties hit Groundhog Day.

One Red Nose Day And A Wedding will premiere during Red Nose Day 2019 on Friday, March 15.
