Second Hand Wedding

Synopsis: A small film with a big heart, SECOND HAND WEDDING is a bittersweet dramatic comedy set in the present, in a time when trademe and e-bay threaten the primeval urge for a firsthand crack at the second-hand.

Father of the bride, Brian, quips that Cheryl's upcoming wedding will be the first time anyone in the Rose family has given something away - and that's the crux of it.

Can you give us a hand with this please?

Oh thanks darling.

Right, where shall I put this?

- Ah, I think out on the deck might be perfect.

- Right.

Wait till you see what else Muffy and I got this


Look at that Brian.

Isn't it beautiful? That's cut crystal.

As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it.

I saw it first.

Guess how much it cost.

Um... five dollars?


Can you believe that?

Only three.

Would you ladies like a cup of tea?

Only if you're putting one on.

I'm putting one on.

And I got this for you.

Oh you beauty.

Me or the magazine?


Right, thanks for the lift, see you at school.

Right, thanks for the lift, see you at school.

G'day Miss Rose, what are you doing here?

I'm here to pick up my car.

What, no, no, this wont be ready till, ah, till...

You said it was going to be ready today.

I know, I know I did but um,

we found another problem.

What, what's wrong with it?

Well I think you better come have a look actually,

it's um...

Oh no.

Yeah, that rattle you heard in the engine, that

wasn't just a loose lead.

No, it was a lot more serious than that, I'm afraid.

Will you marry me, Miss Rose?

Stew Davis, how could you?

Yes, yes, of course, of course!

- Woohoo.

- Congratulations.

- Go on.

- Oh yeah, of course.

Oh, this teapot is perfect.

Thank you darling.

Oh, apart from this little chip in the lid.

Hold it right there.

I knew as soon as I saw it, I knew that this lid

would fit that pot.

So we can just throw this one away?

No, you never know do you?

Oh, that's lovely.

That's for Cheryl.

Of course.

Muffy, I didn't show you, I was up in the market in

Otaki last week,

and I saw this.

Oh, that is beautiful.

It was in a box with a whole pile of other stuff. I got

the box for 15 dollars.

Is it real silver?
