Charles’ brother David, played by David Bower, signs his name, while Kristin Scott Thomas (Fiona), John Hannah (Matthew), James Fleet (Tom) David Haig (Bernard), Simon Kunz (John), Rowan Atkinson (Gerald) and Rupert Vansittart (George) also make an appearance before some ‘surprise guests’ are teased by Sophie Thompson (Lydia).

Hugh ends the trailer by ‘requesting the pleasure of your company at the wedding of the year’, warning ‘please try not to be late.’

New behind the scenes photos have also been unveiled showing the stellar cast filming in a church last December.

Not pictured in the new images is Lily James, who is playing Hugh’s daughter in the sequel, and the bride of the centrepiece wedding. 

It hasn’t been confirmed though if Carrie remained with Charles, and is therefore the mother of the bride.

One Red Nose Day and a Wedding reunites the cast of the classic romcom, along with writer Richard Curtis, who penned the original film and is the co-founder of Red Nose Day, and director Mike Newell. 

As filming began shooting, the cast sent fans wild while littering social media with a slew of behind-the-scenes snaps.

Emma Freud, the partner of the film’s writer Richard, live tweeted the first day of shooting to the delight of fans, as she shared snaps of the original 1994 cast and some surprise cameos.

Kristin Scott Thomas’ real life son is also making an appearance in the new short set 25 years on, playing unlucky in love Fiona’s son, with a photo showing the handsome offspring chatting to cast on set dressed in a smart suit to play an usher. 

GMB presenter Susanna Reid will also be making an appearance along with Spooks star Raza Jaffrey.   

There will be a notable absence from the cast though as sadly Charlotte Coleman who played Charles’ flatmate Scarlett died in 2001.

Simon Callow will also be skipping out on an appearance as his character Gareth famously dies during the original film.

Four Weddings and a Funeral was made in just six weeks and cost under £3 million, but became the highest-grossing British film in history at the time, with worldwide box office takings in excess of $245.7 million. 

The film was also nominated for the Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay Oscars and picked up multiple Golden Globes and BAFTAs.
