Hallmark released its new movie “The Wedding Veil Journey” on January 21, which was partially shot in Greece.
Starring Alison Sweeney, Victor Webster, Lacey Chabert and Autumn Reeser. Actress Jane Asher also stars. The film was partially shot on location in Greece.
“The Wedding Veil Journey” is the third film in the sequel trilogy, and now Tracy (Alison Sweeney) is running the auction house and Nick’s (Victor Webster) restaurant is doing so well that he wants to expand.
Their success leaves the couple with so little time together that they haven’t yet decided where to take their long-delayed honeymoon, but eventually end up in Greece. When a travel delay leaves them without a hotel room, they end up staying on a beautiful, secluded island at a fledgling inn run by resourceful local Tessa (Katerina Geronikolou) and her well-meaning brother Xander (Alexander Nicolaou).
When Nick discovers that Xander is a chef, despite the fact that his cooking isn’t delicious, he can’t help but lend a hand in the kitchen. Tracy meanwhile
she meets Leo (newcomer Ché Grant), a charming boy from a nearby boarding school whose artistic talents are rivaled only by his ability to get into trouble.
Tracy can’t shake the feeling that Leo needs her help, but finds her interventions unwelcome by the school principal (Andreas Karras). Tracy is soon confronted with a mystery when the elegant Lady Dalton (Jane Asher) and her grandson Colin (Nicholas Banks) check in.
Inexplicably, the veil – which Tracy had brought to give to Nick’s sister – continues to drape around Colin’s room. With sparks flying between Colin and Tessa, even the skeptical Tracy may finally have to admit that there is something to the legend of the veil.
As they spend time on the island, Tracy and Nick may also discover that while their honeymoon may not be exactly what they imagined, it may be just what they need.
Victor Webster is impressive as Nick and has great chemistry with Alison Sweeney. The Greek actors in the film also give commendable performances, especially Andreas Karras and Katerina Geronikolou. Plus the young actor Ché Grant, who was remarkable as Leo. The cinematography of Greece captured in this film was visually stunning.
“The Wedding Veil” is from Front Street Pictures Productions. Beth Grossbard, Lisa
Demberg, Lacey Chabert and Alison Sweeney are executive producers. Harvey Kahn, Juliet Smith and Phillip Roth are co-executive producers.
Ron Oliver directed the film from a screenplay by Karen Berger, inspired by Laurie Wilde’s book There Goes the Bride and based on characters created by Judith Berg and Sandra Berg.
“The Wedding Veil Journey” deserves more than a glance and garners two thumbs up. It’s a neat story because the main characters Tracy and Nick agree to put work aside and make time for a long overdue honeymoon for themselves in Greece. Stranded on an isolated island, they are forced to confront their life choices.
