Jon invites you to his wedding! But that special night bringing people together, making them happy and entertained, the wedding night, is a bit more special in this film. It’s not the complaining relatives or drunk best friends and no, it’s not the age difference of the couple. Besides having them all, the gimmick of White Night Wedding is hidden in its title; it all happens on June 21st in Iceland, on that night when the sun never sets. Empowered by Nordic humor, the film is directed by the beloved Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur.
