Jenny's Wedding

Jenny's WeddingPlanet London is proud to be a financial supporter for Jenny's Wedding. We are backing this film because it reflects a highly contemporary storyline that is relevant on the back of breakthroughs in UK and US legislation that allows same sex marriage and these kind of stories are the next step for our community - plus it is a bonus that the lesbian characters aren't all behind bars! We know that this is the kind of story that younger lesbians want to see to help them break down taboos and barriers with their elder familiarial generations.

About Jenny's Wedding

Jenny's Wedding is a feature film starring Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy) and Alexis Bledl (Gilmore Girls and Madmen). When Jenny decides to marry a woman, her conventional family is forced to accept who she is or risk losing their daughter and their self respect. The film is already in the editing room and the production team are crowdfunding on IndieGoGo to raise funds for a top class soundtrack including songs such as Mary Lambert's 'Same Love'.
