Wedding Lists

Join us after hours for a glass of something bubbly and the chance to choose the perfect books for your new life together. We will help the happy couple make up a list of the books they feel they can’t start married life without. The list will then be available on request via email, post or on the telephone to invited wedding guests. Once a book has been bought by a guest, we will remove it from the list.

We will then make up a beautiful parcel of all the books your friends have bought you – complete with a bookplate in each one to say who it is from, and any message they wanted us to pass on – and you can collect them from the shop (or we will deliver within a sensible radius). This is also a great service for housewarmings, bar mitzvahs, birthdays and other important milestone events.
