Born into a loving, East London, working class family, in a neighbourhood where everyone looks out for one another, Emma is ever so slightly shell shocked to find out that the love of her life, Daniel, the man who has just proposed to her doesn't just have a posh accent, but has a whole posh and privileged family behind him.
But when it comes to planning their wedding, Emma's fiercely proud and traditional parents insist they foot the bill. But pulling together a shoestring wedding where the groom's family has gold plated expectations is easier said than done. And it will take all Emma's ingenuity and imagination, not to mention the help and support of her East End neighbours to make it happen.
Charming and funny, not to mention provocative of the occasional tear--I always cry at weddings, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was beautifully painted with easy-to-love characters and a setting that put you in mind of a much less depressing version of Albert Square.
I would recommend this for anyone who is looking for a happy and light read. You won't be sorry.
The Big Little Wedding in Carlton Square is utterly fantastic full of humour and romance. Its exciting and really easy to read. The beautiful cover of the book is very enticing and the whole story is just wonderfully put together.
The characters in the book are all so different and it doesnt take long to get to know each of them and get attached to them.
The main character Emma you just have so much love for her, she goes through so much and feels a lot of pressure to please her in laws and her own family and most importantly herself. I think she does spectacularly pleasing everyone and pulling off the big day she has. I think a lot of us would of cracked under the strains.
I have to say this is one of my favourite books ever!
However until the proposal, Emma hadn't actually realised that Daniel came from a completely different way of life from her, and as they plan together a wedding on a shoe string budget, it really is East meets West (London) as they all see how the other half lives.
Emma loves Daniel's mother, but she has completely different ideas to her on every single aspect of wedding planning, and Daniel although he knows there is a budget, well his idea of economising was using the same chauffeur for more than one journey during the day, whereas Emma's thoughts on getting to and from venues involved walking!
It's not just Emma and Daniel that need to find a happy medium, its equally amusing when the two sets of parents meet, and also when the friends merge. Wedding dress shopping included two very different experiences, and what really amazed me was just how inventive Emma and her family and friends were when it came to the nitty gritty details of the wedding.
Let's not forget that in Emma's extended family is her Uncle Barbara who is very comfortable in a dress, and rarely wears male clothes anymore, and Auntie Rosie who tends to go walkabout. Her father is unfortunately suffering from a horrible disease, and I really felt for her, as I know what its like to have a dad with MS.
I don't think there was a second of this book that I didn't completely enjoy. I loved everything about it, and there are some great surprises in it too.Read more ›
Would highly recommend this book. It was easy to read and in places the author is talking directly to you, the reader.
Emma is a regular East End girl marrying into a posh Chelsea family, with a limited budget but with a great imagination. The end result is amazing.
