Sandon Hall’s Top 5 Wedding Movies

Weddings are a major theme all over Hollywood, from opening scenes like The Godfather to closing scenes in classics such as The Graduate, weddings have been bursting onto the big screens since the 60’s.


Wedding planning can get a little overwhelming at times, so here are some wedding inspired films to help you sit back and relax. You might even get inspired and excited all over again. Plus they’re just great films.


Bridesmaids by Paul Feig (2011)



A hilarious film about female friendships, Bridesmaids is one of the great women-led comedies of the decade. If you haven’t already seen it, it’s definitely worth a watch.


Not just for the comedy but for inspiration from Rose Byrne’s character’s wedding planning, like the Parisian themed party complete with waiters serving champagne, hors d’oeuvres and an Eiffel Tower replica. C’est bon!


Four Weddings and a Funeral by Mike Newell (1994)



We couldn’t compile a wedding film list without this Hugh Grant classic story of chance meetings, star crossed lovers, stuttering Englishmen and a beautiful American. Lots of weddings to watch and romance to follow, this is the perfect sit back and relax rom-com during the wedding season.


The Wedding Singer by Frank Coraci (1998)





This 80’s set rom-com is sure to tempt you into backcombing your hair. A classic Adam Sandler comedy with the unforgettable scene of him singing sweetly into the microphone before going into his rock-scream of betrayal about his ex.


This is a great light-hearted romp through the world of weddings, relationships and wannabe rockstars. It also serves a friendly reminder to carefully selecting your own wedding singer or band.


Monsoon Wedding by Mira Nair (2002)


This film unites Hollywood with Bollywood to create an energetic and bright exploration of modern day love in India. Following the story of a family and the dramas surrounding a very chaotic Indian wedding, drama and romance explodes onto the screen and into our hearts.


For those who are preparing a more colourful wedding this film is full of rich golds and reds in flowers and sequins to help inspire your wedding decor.


The Princess Bride by Rob Reiner (1987)


This a great contemporary telling of a damsel in distress style fairy tale, full of fantasy, comedy and action. It’s a classic film with great reviews and the famous line “Hello! My name is Inigo Montoya! You killed my father! Prepare to die!”.


A wonderful bit of escapism from the everyday world to whisk your imagination away and help you ponder your fantasy wedding.



These films are a wonderful source of wedding inspiration as well as a fun way to kickback and relax – yet still feeling at least a little bit productive!
