The Wedding- Currently Live on BBC Iplayer

  • Frida Dikko

The Wedding is a six-part series of short films revealing the story of a Scots/African wedding from the perspective of six different people attending the event. It launches on BBC iPlayer on Monday October 24, during Black History Month, with two 30 minutes versions going out at a later date on the BBC Scotland channel. The backdrop to the six stories featured in the drama is the wedding of a bride with Scottish roots and a groom with mixed Kenyan and Ugandan roots, who are ‘tying the knot’ after many years. Among the key cast is Guilt star Moyo Akandé, playing The Estranged Sister in a part written and directed by her sister Morayo Akandé, and Nandi Hudson, from Netflix’s Army of Thieves, playing The Teenage Daughter. Other actors featured in the project include River City’s Brian James Leys as The 2nd Best Man, Michelle Chantelle Hopewell as The African Mother, Bruce Fummey as The Gambling Uncle, and Lola Aluko, as The Bartender. Hair for all cast was done by @fashionsfaithboutique Check it out here;
