Famous actress Lara Tyler can't get married to author James Arber without intrusive paparazzi crashing the ceremony. Because of James's best-seller, Lara's agent, Steve, checks out the little known Hegg Island in Scotland as the site for their next attempted wedding. Unfortunately, James is a hack, and his book (supposedly based on Hegg) relays little of it accurately. Katie, an island native and the only unmarried woman on it, has been unlucky in love. She's working on writing her own guide to Hegg Island when Steve and crew arrive, eventually hiring her as a reluctant decoy bride to distract the paparazzi. In a mix-up, she and James end up married to each other while Lara, having spotted the press, goes into hiding. Katie and James now have to get an island divorce while avoiding the press while other parties seek out Lara (who has disguised herself as one of the elderly islanders).Written by
The script was priced at seven million pounds (the amount it would cost to make it), however the film only had a budget of two and a half million pounds. This led to many scenes and characters being cut during filming, in an attempt to cut costs. See more »

The initial credits appear over a scene of Lara attending Marco's photographic exhibition and purchasing a print of a Scottish hedgehog. The scene ends with a paparazzo taking a picture of them, which then appears on a magazine cover. The credits then revert to the usual scrolling list. See more »

This movie can be a disappoinment for those who wish to watch an American type rom-com. But it could be heart-warming for those who want to have a simple evening with a loved one. The acting was spectacular and I'm deeply impressed by the writing. Congrats to all of you, you gave me what I needed. I feel content now.
