Northanger Abbey Stylish On The Day Wedding Stationery Collection

Northanger Abbey Stylish On The Day Wedding Stationery Collection

Introducing our Northanger Abbey Inspired Stylish On The Day Wedding Stationery Collection!

“If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad.”

– Jane Austen

Find the adventure with this stylish range, inspired by Northanger Abbey.

Who among us hasn’t gone off to Bath, hungry for adventure, only to end up falling in love with the first man we meet? Don’t get me wrong, Mr Tilney has some great one-liners. If he’ll forgive me for assuming his dad killed his mum then he’s definitely a keeper! Although Catherine learned her lesson, we can’t expect her to give up the Gothic altogether, can we? There’s just a hint of it in what I’m delighting in calling A BLOOD RED HEART motif 😉

Bridal Book Club – June – Northanger Abbey

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”

Jane Austen – Northanger Abbey

Last but not least, it’s time for Northanger Abbey!

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

My favourite Jane Austen novel varies, depending mostly on which I’m reading, or which adaptation I’ve seen most recently. But in one thing, Northanger Abbey will always be my favourite. Mr Tilney is, and I will take no argument, the best Austen hero. He just is. I might change my mind on this after a re-read, but for now I can say with absolute confidence: Mr Tilney rules. 

Here’s the blurb for you:

This coming-of-age story revolves around Catherine Morland, a young and naïve “heroine”, who entertains the reader on her journey to a better understanding of the world and those around her. In the course of the novel, she discovers that she differs from those other women who crave wealth or social acceptance, as instead she wishes only to have happiness supported by genuine morality.

Wikipedia

It’s got love, it’s got loose morals, it’s got jokes. What more could you want from a book?

Unlike the other Austens, this one’s light on the adaptations, heavy on the background reading. It’s a satire of some of the most popular Gothic Novels of the time, and if you’ve got neither the time nor inclination to read said Gothic novels, let me just assure you that they are:

a) full of fainting heroines

b) thrilling

c) very silly fun

So without further ado, here are some free resources for you to read along:)

Here’s another irritating Wordsworth edition cover. But let’s not get into that again.

  • Thursday 27th June 2019 – Facebook Group Book Club Discussion 

And don’t forget to keep and eye on twitter and instagram for Bridal Book Club chat and pics. If you’re watching any of the adaptations, please share your thoughts either in the Facebook Group, or on twitter with #bridalbookclub

Adatation wise, there are 2 main ones:

ITV is my absolute favourite because of the incomparable JJ Field. And Felicity Jones is spot on.

If you enjoy the story, there’s a modern version by Val McDermid, set in around the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. 

And so, there’s the end of Austen!:( 

But fear not, after a few months off, there’ll be some more classics coming up! I’m thinking Dickens for Christmas, some Bronte and Gaskell for an indeterminate time in the future. Any requests, let me know!

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”

– Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

Personally, I don’t mind folding down the corner of a page. It depends on the book, really. I’ll do it on my £1.99 Wordsworth Classics, but not on anything old and pretty. But with a print and a snip, you can have a book-appropriate bookmark as you read along with Bridal Book Club

I’m going to be giving away pre-printed Jane Austen bookmarks (pictured) at the various wedding fayres I’m attending early 2019. I’m also slipping them in orders, while stocks last.
