The movie, the fourth in the Twilight series, will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray later this month, but an extended featurette detailing behind-the-scenes of the wedding has gone viral. The photos are stills from the yet to be released DVD.
During an interview last November, Rob told the “Today Show’s” Ann Curry wanted to now how Rob felt during the scene when his off-screen girlfriend Kristen Stewart walked down the aisle.

“You suddenly realize that the role of a groom in a wedding is that of a prop,” he said laughing. “I was watching Kristen have to take all the nerves and have to deal with all the heavy lifting in the scene, basically.”
He revealed that only he saw the wedding dress before the scene was filmed. Secrecy was so tight that no one else had a chance to see it until cameras were rolling.
“So when she’s walking down the aisle and everyone turns around, it’s genuine, their curiosity, because there was so much secrecy about it. I don’t know why, it’s a white dress,” he said laughing again.
Rob says Kristen looked “absolutely amazing” in the Caroline Herrera dress.
Kristen said she cried during the wedding scene. “I was nervous for the wedding scene. When I looked at the set, with the pews and the lights, and I could see everyone there in their outfits, I cried. It felt incredibly ceremonial. It felt like a real wedding,” she told the UK edition of GQ magazine.
