Yesterday's post dealt with Regency style weddings. Which Jane Austen inspired movie wedding did you enjoy the most? The one in Pride and Prejudice 1995 which shot the double wedding of the Bingleys and the Darcys in the snow? Or Colonel Brandon's bell chimed wedding to Marianne in 1995's Sense and Sensibility? Both, you must agree, are incredibly romantic!
Favorite Jane Austen Inspired Wedding
Pride and Prejudice, 1995, with Mr. Darcy (Colin Firth) and Elizabeth Bennet (Jennifer Ehle), and Mr. Bingley (Crispin Bonham Carter) and his Jane ( Susannah Harker) in a double wedding. Artificial snow had to be carted in for this scene.
Sense and Sensibility, 1995, with Colonel Brandon (Alan Rickman) and Marianne Dashwood (Kate Winslet) getting married by Hugh Grant (Edward Ferrars), who had shortly before married Elinor Dashwood (Emma Thompson). Villagers carry the wedding cake in a procession while waving ribbons. Willoughby (Greg Wise) looks on from a distance, and turns away when Colonel Brandon throws six pence in the air for good luck.
This YouTube clip is not visually pretty, but it showcases the music that was played during the wedding scene.
