What happened in the original Four Weddings and a Funeral film?
The 1994 romantic comedy is one of the most successful films in British cinema.

Charles falls for American beauty Carrie (Andie MacDowell) at a wedding – but thinks she’s not interested when she returns to the States.
Though they seem destined to remain apart they continue to bump into each other at a handful of nuptials and one funeral.
