Julia and Michael - Notley Abbey

We had the most wonderful day and the venue is simply stunning.  We fell in love with it the first moment we drove down the drive on a very grey, rainy day in February and we didn't look at any other venues. 

Our guests were blown away by Notley Abbey and the whole day certainly didn't disappoint.

We were well looked after, the wedding food was great and Notley Abbey was such an amazing backdrop for our special day. It was so lovely to have our family stay over with us and then have breakfast together the next day. It really gave us a great opportunity to relive the day before and carry on celebrating.  

Leading up to the Wedding Day we found the wedding planning site very useful as it allowed you to make changes and show an amended price.

We would recommend Notley Abbey to future brides as the exclusive use of the venue is a huge bonus and the location is breathtaking.

Advice for future couples:
 
In the planning process, don't get bogged down and if you like something then just book it! You can spend hours looking at alternatives but you will always go back to the first thing you looked at! On the Wedding Day make sure you take a step back and just watch your guests having a great time and take in the whole thing as it will whizz by.  Remember if something goes wrong don't worry, no-one else will notice on the day as they didn't know what it was suppose to be like.
