“Cheryl's planning the perfect wedding, there's just one problem - her mother.
 
“A small film with a big heart, SECOND-HAND WEDDING is a  bittersweet dramatic comedy set in the present, in a time when trademe and e-bay threaten the primeval urge for a firsthand crack at the second-hand.
Jill keeps the dream alive until she is forced to confront the habits of a lifetime and concede that no bargain is worth her daughter’s happiness.

“SECOND-HAND WEDDING  is an intimate, endearing look at the relationships within and around a middle New Zealand family.  The film was independently produced and shot mainly on the idyllically beautiful Kapiti Coast of New Zealand. The story centres on the Rose Family and the ripples their personal lives have on a small community. Its a story of family and friends where the changes in their lives that can so quickly divide can just as quickly bring them back together again.“SECOND-HAND WEDDING is an intimate, endearing look at the relationships within and around a middle New Zealand family.

“It is director Paul Murphy’s first feature film building on his work directing commercials and television drama (Sensing Murder) and his 30 years working in the technical area of film production. Paul's creative team also includes director of photography Richard Bluck (Lord of the Rings, King Kong), casting agent Tina Cleary and production designer Brad Mill (Lord of the Rings, The Water Horse). Nick Ward (Stickmen, The Ferryman) and Linda Niccol (The Handkerchief) wrote SECOND-HAND WEDDING; Nick Ward conceived the story which was based on his family.
