Blake Lively has been seen wearing a glamorous wedding gown in newly-emerged photos.

The US actor, 36, looked every bit the beautiful bride in paparazzi shots taken from the set of her upcoming movie, A Simple Favor 2.

The film, a sequel to the 2018 thriller co-starring Anna Kendrick, is currently filming in Capri, Italy.

Lively, whose husband is Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds, could be seen ‘marrying’ 365 Days star Michele Morrone in the photos – the pair surrounded by an extravagant floral arbour.

The mother-of-four, who is reprising her role as Emily Nelson in the follow-up film, had her blonde hair styled in a sleek updo with flowers for the fictional wedding day, as she stunned in a strapless princess-style gown.

Kendrick’s character, Stephanie Smothers, appears to be serving as a bridesmaid in the scenes, and was sporting a strapless ‘50s style gown with multi-coloured florals.

Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, who shot the first film, is returning to the sequel as director.

A Simple Favor 2 was first announced in mid-2022, and is co-produced by Lionsgate and Amazon MGM Studios.

While little is known about the plot, a press release revealed Lively and Kendrick’s characters would be travelling to Italy for Emily’s wedding to a “rich Italian businessman”.

“Along with the glamorous guests, expect murder and betrayal to RSVP for a wedding with more twists and turns than the road from the Marina Grande to the Capri town square,” a press release read.

In real life, Lively married Reynolds back in 2012, though the couple have never shared photos of themselves from their private nuptials, which they hosted at a plantation in South Carolina.

The couple was quickly accused of glamorising violence against black slaves – with the plantation system built off slave labour – with Reynolds later dubbing their venue choice a “giant mistake”.

The pair were married again at their home in a top secret ceremony years later, Reynolds told Fast Company in 2020.

“Years ago, we got married again at home — but shame works in weird ways. A giant mistake like that can either cause you to shut down or it can reframe things and move you into action,” Reynolds said at the time.

“It doesn’t mean you won’t f**k up again. But repatterning and challenging lifelong social conditioning is a job that doesn’t end.”
