The Wedding Video

Synopsis: Clumsy Raif Moyle returns to Cheshire for the wedding of his elder brother Tim to Saskia, their old school-friend, who was something of a wild child in the past. To the mild consternation of Saskia's socially-conscious mother Alex Raif proposes that, in addition to his duties as best man, he will make a video of events leading up to, and including, the wedding. This means he spends a lot of time with Saskia and begins to realize that, beneath the surface, the happy event may turn out to be less than happy for all concerned. Fortunately a wedding does eventually take place with surprises all round, the biggest one coming from Alex.

- Hello.

- What's this?

- He's making a film.

- As a wedding present.

- Oh, you should have told me.

I'd have spent more time on my make-up.


Welcome, Raif.

Today there are still children

from low income backgrounds,

whose lives are destroyed

by the ravages of alcohol abuse.

You presence at this champagne tasting

means we can send some of them--

These are the 3 most important women

in Cheshire.

This is Kym Ling of Yang Ling restaurants.

Wilmslow, The Edge, everywhere.

- Only 8, darling.

- Only 8, she says.

- Tara Devlin of--Devlins.

- Voil.

And Jacqui Mintchell-Baines

of Mintchell-Baines Mercedes.

- Hello.

- Not to mention,

the bride-to-be.

Saskia! Saskia.

Come and meet... the best man.

- Saskia Dutton.

- Raif Moyle.

F*ck me.

Okay, let me just explain

my reaction quickly.

This is how I remember Saskia Dutton.

The craziest girl at school,

when she bothered to turn up.

The son' of girl your mum

would warn you about.

She went to parties like this

and hung out with blokes like that.

But now...

So, how did the two of you meet?

We met at a Road Haulage Industry

gala night.

- Oooh. Sounds exciting.

- All right, steady.

Was that a benefit for all the cyclists

they'd mowed down that year?

It was a benefit for children, Raif.


It's a Christmas party. My step-dad,

well his company Rigid Box--

All right. Why don't you go back

there where I can keep an eye on you.

A sheep smells nicer. Go on, go away.

So, Tim, how does a guy like you

propose to a girl like Saskia?

- Eh, we, it was in...

- It was in Chester.

Yeah. We came out of the restaurant,

I sat her down by the fountains

roundabout and popped the question.

And he timed the fountains

so they went off just as I gave my answer.

Which was a bit embarrassing
