The Vintage Summer Wedding - Jenny Oliver

Blurb:

A Vera Wang dress, the reception at a sophisticated London venue, and a guest list that reads like a society gossip column are all the ingredients of Anna Whitehall’s perfect wedding that never was…

 

Spending the summer uncovering hidden treasures in a vintage shop, Anna can still vividly remember both her childhood dreams; the first was that she’d become a Prima Ballerina, and dance on stage resplendent in a jewel-encrusted tutu. The second was that at her wedding she would walk down the aisle wearing a collective-gasp-from-the-congregation dress.

 

Years ago Anna pirouetted out of her cosy hometown village in a whirl of ambition…but when both of those fairy-tale dreams came crashing down around her ballet shoes, she and fiancée Seb find themselves back in Nettleton, their wedding and careers postponed indefinitely…

 

Don’t they say that you can never go home again? Sometimes they don’t get it right… This one summer is showing Anna that your dreams have to grow up with you. And sometimes what you think you wanted is just the opposite of what makes you happy…

Review:

The Vintage Summer Wedding is such a lovely book. It's relaxed laid-back feel with its lovely plot and impressive characters has you smiling and enjoying every single minute. 

 

A tale of true love that is not only fitting to your partner, but fitting to yourself. A story about testing friendships new and old, and how a group of kids and a little antique shop in a village called Nettleton holds the key to that love. 

 

I enjoyed this book immensely and I would definitely recommend this for your summer reading collection. I think it would be perfect in the garden especially at nighttime with twinkling fairy lights and a cold glass of wine. 

4/5
