Happy Is the Bride | 1958 | Ian Carmichael, Janette Scott

Bubbling remake of Quiet Wedding, in which a couple who are planning to have a relaxing, enjoyable summer wedding find themselves up to their necks in trouble as their families take over the preparations. Everything seems to conspire against the couple as they fight their way to the altar – from the intrusive relatives to policemen eager to arrest the couple for a minor driving offence…
