Season 2’s ‘Bridgerton’ wedding was ‘so real’ to the show’s stars


Spoilers ahead for Bridgerton Season 2. Angst was the unofficial theme of BridgertonThe second season of, and perhaps no sequence is a better example of this than the wedding in episode 6, “The Choice.” As the love triangle between Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), Kate (Simone Ashley) and Edwina (Charithra Chandran) reaches a watershed moment, there’s no escaping the emotional whirlwind – and even the actors felt it while filming the scenes. Bridgerton the stars revisited the experience in a “Making a Scene” video for Shondaland on April 29, and they revealed it was just as intense for them to film as it was for viewers to watch.

Getting into the right frame of mind, it turns out, was easy. The sheer scale of the occasion, from the incredible location to the cast’s Regency adornment, made Anthony and Edwina’s wedding day real to them. Shelley Conn, who plays Lady Mary Sharma, recalled the feeling that “you could just let go of the day”. As she escorted Chandran down the aisle, she felt like she was giving her daughter to the screen. “There was something about walking down the aisle with Charithra and seeing Johnny at the altar and just thinking, ‘Oh my God, they’re about to get married,'” she said. declared.

For Ashley and Bailey, the trip down the aisle was also a unique experience. “I especially remember me and Johnny talking about how vulnerable and scary it was to walk down that aisle,” Ashley said. “It was like a real wedding. With everyone staring at you, you feel incredibly exposed. But, again, it helped. She was able to let go and just be “in the moment”.

Bailey described being “overwhelmed” and explained that “the service kind of went the way it would”. In fact, he said most actors never saw Chandran in her wedding dress until it was time for her to meet him at the altar for the first time on camera. It all came together for “an incredible moment” – one he will “never forget”.

The bride herself, however, mostly remembers feeling “so grateful” to have the scenes she did. The fact that they were “showing Edwina’s growth” meant a lot to Chandran, and she even called Bridgerton creator and showrunner Chris Van Dusen to thank him. His character’s journey in the TV series was different from that of his source material, The viscount who loved me by Julia Quinn, but it seems she wholeheartedly approves of the changes.

Season 2 – especially Episode 6 – may have wrecked us all emotionally at times, but there’s no denying that Kate and Anthony’s love story was gripping. BridgertonThe second chapter of is now Netflix’s most popular English-language television series, having taken the top spot in season 1, as Variety reported in April. Fans want more, and while Van Dusen hands writer and producer Jess Brownell showrunner duties for seasons 3 and 4, he’s confident she’ll “continue the magic.” That magic may include making us all feel too much, but we’ll still take as many Bridgerton family weddings as possible, whether they end in a kiss or in chaos.
