Inside a storm is brewing!
Director Donald Rice and writer Mary Henely-Magill have created a wonderful story about a collection of maybe stereotypical British characters gathered together at a grand country side estate for a wedding.
The bride, Dolly, realizes she's making a mistake to marry Luke because she still loves Joseph. Joseph shows up to hopefully rescue her from this mistake. But circumstance and the lack of courage in both leave both brokenhearted.
The house fills with silly and forceful characters that create a day of confusion and anger. This is a fun and thoughtful film for those who can tune into subdued British humor.

The Synopsis for Cheerful Weather for the Wedding (2012) 720p
The last summer, shown in major flashbacks, dashing archaeologist Joseph has brilliantly flirted with upper middle-class girl Dolly Thatcham, delighting her cute naughty kid brother Jimmy and even her headless younger sister Annie, yet antagonized their mother, stuck-up widow Thatcham. When bashful Dolly refused to accompany Joseph on a Greek excavation due to his commitment problems, she was afterwards sent on an Albanian holiday, met stuffy diplomat Owen and got engaged. At the wedding day, Dolly hesitated whether she was giving up on her best chance for happiness, and Joseph turned up, but the party guests and obligations kept getting in the way of actually talking it trough.

Inside a storm is brewing!
Ah, the British! They have their eccentricities that have beenproviding fodder for little films for years - from the great stories ofEM Forster, Evelyn Waugh, Julian Fellowes et al to the little dramadiessuch as this one written by director Donald Rice with MaryHenely-Magill, CHEERFUL WEATHER FOR THE WEDDING. They come off bestwhen the odd class-oriented families take themselves seriously,covering their narrow view of the world of civility with accents sothick and rapidly delivered that without subtitles it is difficult tofollow the script! But they are enchanting, especially when deliveredby a cast of superb actors who are able to enter these odd characters'psyches and make us titter while we endure their snobbishness.
This film is meticulously presented and is both a celebration ofEnglish eccentricity and an understated examination of how familiesoften do everything they can to avoid saying how they really feel.Dolly Thatcham (Felicity Jones) is to be married to the wealthy Owen(James Norton) after a very brief engagement: Dolly delays herpreparations for the ceremony by drinking rum upstairs as she hasflashbacks to her real romance a summer ago with the young professorJoseph Patten (Luke Treadaway) whom Dolly has invited to the wedding(to her mother's (Elizabeth McGovern) chagrin and Joseph waitsdownstairs with the entire bizarre family and friends awaiting Dolly'sdescent to proceed to the church. The story is interrupted with allmanner of subplots including the strange behavior of Dolly's youngersister Kitty (Ellie Kendrick) who provides the audience with a naïvetéthat reveals so much about what everyone else is really thinking butjust can't bring themselves to say.
Among the entertaining eccentrics having luncheon before the weddingare the bickering married couple (Fenella Woolgar and Mackenzie Crook)attempting to stop their son young Jimmy (Ben Greaves-Neil) fromsetting off little bombs throughout the house, aging but silly AuntBella (Barbara Flynn) seducing her chauffeur (Emil Lager), theperennial old maid Miss Spoon (Joanna Hole), the day's drunk Tom (OllyAlexander) and of course the only people about whom we care - theservants (Eva Traynor, Paola Dionisotti, Sophie Stanton, KennethCollard. The use of flashbacks to give us insight into Dolly's dilemmaof marrying for convenience instead of for love is beautifully handledby creating a golden glow touch to the sequences from the past bycinematographer John Lee and a lovely musical score by Michael Price.And in a final farewell speech Joseph manages to put everything in itsrightful place. It all works well, but put on the subtitles or you'llbe in the dark.
Rice does a fine job of juggling so many characters and moving smoothly among flashbacks without losing sight of the main story.
