Red Nose Day director Emma Freud – who has been with Richard Curtis for over 30 years – had been sharing pictures from the set and revealing the special guests performing cameos in December.
Among them was Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid, who plays one of the wedding guests.
She was snapped wearing a floaty black floral dress with a silver clutch bag, lurking near the three-tier wedding cake with Richard himself standing in the background.

"We did we did we didn’t think a stag night was necessary," Emma joked
"Photobombing the extra," Emma captioned it.
She also revealed that Kristen’s 18-year-old son George Olivennes is appearing in the sketch, sharing a picture of him in a tuxedo.
"This ridiculously handsome usher (now with bunny ears) is Kristen Scott Thomas’s actual son, playing the part of Kristen Scott Thomas’s actual son," Emma tweeted.

James Fleet is back as Tom – with a magnificent beard
Voiceover artist Nick Jackson and Anna Chancellor, who played Henrietta in the 1994 smash hit, could also be seen – with Emma quipping that Anne "still looks like a duck".
Perhaps the most striking change in appearance was that of James Fleet, who played the hapless Tom in the first film.
He now sports a luxuriant beard, with Emma captioning her picture of him: "I love this man. Whiskers Fleet stealing our show."
Of Rupert Vansittart, who played ‘George The Boor’ in 1994, Emma joked: "Still boarish. Still lusting after Andie Macdowell. Still drunk tbh. Rupert Vansittart. The ledge."
Of working on the sequel, Richard Curtis has said: "We’re all definitely older – I suspect no wiser.
"It’s been really enjoyable working out what’s happened to all the characters – and now they get back together for the fifth wedding. Where, as usual, not everything will go as planned."
