Hapless would-be journalist Laura Lake goes undercover at wedding season. But she hasn't prepared for disappearing brides, secret royal orgies or a jealous office rival. Will Laura get the scoop of the year? Or will she be out on her ear?
She'll need a triple-barrelled name for the castle one. She'll need a gallon of glitter for the woodland one. She'll need a lobster-shaped hat for the Shoreditch one. Laura Lake longs to be a journalist. Instead she's an unpaid intern at a glossy magazine - sleeping in the fashion cupboard and living on canapes. But she's just got her first big break: infiltrate three society weddings and write a juicy expose. Security will be tighter than a bodycon dress, but how hard can it be? Cue disappearing brides, demanding socialites - and a jealous office enemy who will do anything to bring her down...
Published in hardback as Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings.
