London Premiere


The London Australian Film Festival is proud to present the London premiere of Top End Wedding, the home-grown romantic comedy that is proving to be a breakout hit at the Australian box office.


Having swapped the quiet life in the farthest north, or “top end”, of Australia for an exciting law career in bustling Adelaide, Lauren (Miranda Tapsell, The Sapphires) is a young indigenous trailblazer and not one to bend to conventions. So, when her white fiancé Ned (Gwilym Lee, Bohemian Rhapsody) manages to convince her to marry him (no mean feat) they decide to head north for the wedding of a lifetime in some of Australia’s most spectacular scenery.


Arriving in Darwin to find that her mum has gone missing, Lauren must drop everything and hit the road to reunite with her in time for the wedding, and, in so doing, reconnect with her heritage.


Shot on location in Darwin, Katherine, Kakadu and the Tiwi Islands, the natural beauty of the Northern Territory shines through in this film, co-written and co-produced by Tapsell, and directed by Wayne Blair (The Sapphires).
