Fracien Broekhuizen is a PhD student at Coventry University, United Kingdom. Her research project explores the way brides negotiate their bridal becoming in a (digital) context. Here she draws from an ongoing ethnographic immersion in wedding culture that aims to map how the postfeminist notions of the happy bride resonates at different levels of our contemporary understanding of wedding culture. Her PhD project is supervised by Dr. Adrienne Evans and Dr. Shaun Hides.
