The Big Little Wedding in Carlton Square – by Lilly Bartlett

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

When Emma’s boyfriend Daniel pops the question with a ring the size of a small country, she suddenly realizes just how different their worlds are. She wants a low-key wedding with close friends and family, while Daniel’s mother is expecting a society party that their high-brow guests won’t forget! While Emma is envisioning the town hall and Uncle Colin’s pub for the reception, future mother-in-law Philippa is talking chandeliers, silver wedding favors and chocolate fountains… 

How on earth can Emma put together a vintage champagne-sodden celebration - fit for Lords and Ladies - on a beer pocketbook? Not to mention the fact her cross-dressing Uncle Barbara wants to be a bridesmaid, her best friend Kelly can’t stand Daniel’s best friend Cressida, and her dad is too proud to accept any help from Daniel’s family toward the costs. 

There are three months to go until the big day. But will it be memorable for all the wrong reasons?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

I was really excited when I found out that Michele Gorman was starting a new series using her pen name Lilly Bartlett, so here we go with book one.

The story follows Emma and Daniel, who are happily engaged. However, it's only after the engagement when they start realizing how different their worlds aftually are. They come from two very different families, which makes wedding planning a bit tricky. 

I loved reading about the two families and them getting to know each other and fini g a way somehow. The characters are great fun and a lovely mixture of personalities. I felt like there was no real start to the story, it just stared in the middle of something.

Some secrets are added to the story, one of them being very lovely and everything together created a wonderful atmosphere. This is a lovely, vivid, light, bubbly and fun read, full of exciting scenes. Can't waut for the next part of the series now!
