Movie Story: Charlie and Josephine are to be married in a church on the island off the east coast where her family, the Fishes, live, the other wedding events to take place or centered on the well-off Fishes’ extremely large house. Alistair and Cecil are Charlie’s two groomsmen despite neither really believe in marriage, they, who do believe in love, doing whatever they can to make what they assume will be Charlie’s miserable married life tolerable. Charlie, Alistair, and Cecil arrive on the island the morning of the day before the ceremony, all of whom who will meet most of Josephine’s very large network of family, extended family, friends, and acquaintances attending the wedding for the first time, many of who border on the eccentric. As Charlie goes through the process of the pre-wedding events, including the stag party, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and the minister’s counseling services, and beyond other problems that arise such as Baker, the Fishes’ trusty servant, expressing some frustration.
