"I loved that scene on the page. I loved it when we did it at the table read. It was actually such a hot day, which you wouldn't expect in Britain in Cornwall. But it was so hot, so we were all just ready to get drenched. And those fans, it's like automatic comedy with those fans. They were enormous and they just pointed them straight at us and blew us around. Stuff just happened; you don't really have to work that hard. And, so, I loved it. That was one of my favorite scenes to shoot in the film." In addition to having an unconventional wedding scene, Mary's dress is also quite unexpected. "That was Richard's idea to have the red dress. It was written in the script and I never really asked him why exactly. I just sort of went with it and then with costuming, it was a couple different dresses that were put together. It was a vintage dress that needed a little bit of updating. And then I had to be a little bit pregnant in it, so there's a little piece of sponge that we cut out that's sitting right there [on my stomach]."
— The whole wedding sequence is my favorite scene in About Time! I hope you enjoyed reading Rachel’s experience filming it ❤️
