Charles makes a hilarious introduction about how he messed up in a previous wedding being the best man but genuinely states his awe, and if not envy, to the commitment the bride and groom have for each other. Hugh Grant plays the role of Charles in the British comedy film, Four Weddings and a Funeral.
CHARLES: Ladies and gentlemen, l'm sorry to drag you from your desserts. There are just one or two little things I feel I should say, as best man. This is only the second time l've been a best man. I hope I did OK that time. The couple in question are at least still talking to me. Unfortunately, they're not actually talking to each other. The divorce came through a couple of months ago. But l'm assured it had absolutely nothing to do with me. Paula knew Piers had slept with her sister before I mentioned it in the speech. The fact that he'd slept with her mother came as a surprise, but I think was incidental to the nightmare of recrimination and violence that became their two-day marriage.
Anyway, enough of that. My job today is to talk about Angus. There are no skeletons in his cupboard. Or so I thought. I'll come on to that in a minute. I would just like to say this. I am, as ever, in bewildered awe of anyone who makes this kind of commitment that Angus and Laura have made today. I know I couldn't do it and I think it's wonderful they can. So anyway, back to Angus and those sheep.
So, ladies and gentlemen, if you'd raise your glasses. The adorable couple.
