Cheerful Weather for the Wedding is a 2012 British comedy drama film directed by Donald Rice and starring Felicity Jones, Luke Treadaway, and Elizabeth McGovern. Adapted from the 1932 novella Cheerful Weather for the Wedding by Julia Strachey of the Bloomsbury Group, the film is about a young woman on her wedding day who worries that she's about to marry the wrong man, while both her fiancé and her former lover grow increasingly anxious about the event. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 20, 2012.


Today is Dolly's (Felicity Jones) wedding day, and her family is arriving at the manor house with all the cheerfulness, chaos and petty grievances that bubble to the surface at such gatherings. Trouble soon appears with the arrival of Joseph (Luke Treadaway), Dolly's lover from the previous summer, who throws her feelings into turmoil. To her mother's (Elizabeth McGovern) exasperation, his presence threatens to upset the design she had for her daughter's future. Dolly, for her part, just can't decide whether to run away with Joseph or start a new life in Argentina with her husband to be.
