Here’s where you recognise the cast of Netflix’s Wedding Season from
Another Netflix romcom? Sign me up!!
If Netflix excels at anything it’s cheesy cringe romcoms. The characters are pretty one dimensional, the scenery is stunning, and you know exactly how the film is going to end and yet you still watch it anyway. In the last few years there’s been A Perfect Pairing, Falling Inn Love, and now we have the newest one – Wedding Season.
Wedding Season, dropped on Netflix on 4th August and tells the story of hardworking micro finance worker Asha who has absolutely zero intention of falling in love, despite her parents’ wishes. However, in order to get her parents off her back and get through the many weddings she has coming up, she convinces fellow single wedding sufferer Ravi to pretend to be her boyfriend for the season. She also has her own sister’s wedding to get through.
Wedding Season is set in New Jersey and features a fun and talented cast and this is exactly where you recognise them from:
