The Royal Wedding is upon us Brits tomorrow, and with it comes a fervent sense of excitement from the masses.

As a celebration of the happy couple (and of an extra day off) here is a very quick review of some bits and pieces of wedding inspired work that have caught my eye, opening with this classic from KK Outlet’s brilliant sarcastic series of plates.
