And since we live in the digital age, people online are already sharing teaser clips of the already-iconic scene.

BBC aired a sneak peek of the wedding, and fans’ tweets range from “oh my god” to “I have died and gone to Heaven!”

One Twitter user wrote, “THE GAY WEDDING OF LILY JAMES AND ALICIA VIKANDER RIGHTS THE WRONG DONE UNTO US BY RICHARD CURTIS WHEN HUGH GRANT DID NOT END UP WITH KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS AT THE END OF THE ORIGINAL FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL thank you.”

Another user tweeted, “I HAVE DIED AND GONE TO HEAVEN!! ALICIA IN A SUIT GETTING MARRIED TO LILY IN THE “ONE RED NOSE DAY AND A WEDDING” SPECIAL FOR RED NOSE DAY!!!!!!!!! LOOK AT HOW CUTE THEY ARE AND THEY ARE EVEN CUTER AT THE RECEPTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Notice the all-caps Tweets? Yeah, people are stoked.

The short film is set to air in the U.S. on May 23 on the NBC Network, according to a press release sent to E! News.
