This work is characteristic of Wylie’s spontaneous and anarchic style. It was first painted in 1994 to mark Wylie’s daughter’s wedding. When the marriage broke down, Wylie returned to the work, replacing her daughter’s face with Billie Piper’s and transforming the blue wedding marquee into a dress. Wylie described the painting as showing the fragility of relationships, a quality which is emphasised by the work’s unstretched and unprimed canvas, which looks dangerously close to falling apart.
