PERFECT WEDDING by Robin Hawdon
On the morning of his wedding day, Bill, the soon to be groom wakes in his own bridal suite, with his bride-to-be about to arrive any moment, and finds a strange girl in bed beside him. What’s more an extremely attractive girl whom, in the depths of his post stag-night hangover, he can’t remotely remember even being introduced to. Worse – during the ensuing panic to get the stranger dressed and out of the way, the bride arrives and the girl is trapped in the bathroom. The only way out of the dilemma is to persuade the best man Tom, to pretend that the hidden girl is his girlfriend. Then the problem is that the best man’s real girlfriend is attending the wedding and has to be kept ignorant of the fact. By the time the bride’s parents and an innocent, unwitting chambermaid get in on the act, the chaos and laughter reaches nuclear proportions.
Bill: (Early 20’s to late 30’s) The panic stricken, soon to be groom. Bill is your typical, everyday guy who finds himself in an appalling situation. With a backbone of mush, he handles the stress with the bug-eyed fear of a lost little boy, building lies upon lies to find a way out of the truth.
Tom: (Early 20’s to late 30’s) Bill’s best friend and best man. Tom is a solid, dependable man who has his own set of relationship problems. Quick witted and the first to question the practicality of Bill’s plans to avoid the truth.
Rachel: ((Early 20’s to late 30’s) She is the unsuspecting bride to be. She is strong of will and character if not so strong in common sense. Quick to have the wool pulled over her eyes in the light of her upcoming big day.
Julie: (Early 20’s to late 30’s) The quirky and loveable chambermaid of the hotel. She innocently plays along in an effort to help out even though it goes against her own set of morals. She may seem simple, but she has a strong sense of right and wrong and has a limit to her charitable nature.
Judy: (Early 20’s to late 30’s) Judy is an attractive woman of the best intentions if not so honest and morally sound. Confused by her own emotions and relationship she tends to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the right person.
Daphne: (Late 40’s to early 60’s) The mother of the bride. Daphne is oblivious to the situation at hand. Focused only on getting the wedding right, she tends to be a bit passive aggressive and ignorantly charming.
