I like it when authors and illustrators really let you into their everyday life. This book was like chatting with a friend during the year of planning her wedding. Lucy, as an artist and general non-conformist, wanted to pick and choose the elements of a wedding that resonated with her and her partner. Lots of things were DIY and she relied on many artsy and foodie friends too. It was cool to see real photos interspersed with the illustrations!
