They are joined by one of the UK's top funny women Katy Brand, Greg Wise and multi-award winning and Grammy nominated singer/songwriter, Leona Lewis, makes this musical extravaganza her debut film role.
After a whirlwind romance, Maddie, fresh from a long term relationship, is preparing to marry gorgeous Raf and has invited her sister Taylor to the wedding in Italy. Unbeknownst to Maddie, however, Raf is Taylor's ex-holiday flame, and the love of her life...and that is just one of the set-backs on their road to happy ever after.
