After forty years of declining marriages the British wedding is on the rise.

The Wedding Day looks behind the pomp and ritual of one wedding to unveil British attitudes to marriage through two very different families.

Serena and Jordan, a bright, ambitious couple in their twenties are getting married. They come from contrasting worlds; Serena is from a wealthy Cambridgeshire family while Jordan comes from a more modest background in Stoke. Serena’s parents are divorced, Jordan’s are still together. Confessional interviews with the couple and their families reveal their expectations of married life and asks how their different histories influence their view of marriage. 

Directed by Bafta award winning Director, PaddyWivell.
