Wedding Guest

Notley Abbey
I attended a wedding on the 4th of November at Notley Abbey and I have to congratulate the staff who made us most welcome the service was truly superb and the quality of the food was as good as, if not better, than the best Michelin starred restaurants I have had the privilege to dine at. The venue was also incredible, overall brilliant, well done.

Hi Maddie,I can't thank you all enough at Bijou weddings and at Notley Abbey for everything you all did to make Charlotte and Tom's wedding day run so seamlessly and smoothly. It really was a such a beautiful, totally stress free and fantastic day - it surpassed all my dreams and hopes for them - they said they truly had the wedding day of their dreams - and we all had the most amazing and memorable day - thank you all so very much. We would, and many of our guests have said the same, have no hesitation in recommending Notley Abbey and Bijou weddings - everybody we have dealt with has been excellent.

My daughter's wedding took place at Notley Abbey on Friday 8 September and it could not have been more wonderful. We fell in love with the venue the first time we visited (having already seen half a dozen other wedding venues). It is such a romantic and atmospheric place. Each room downstairs has its own character and the bedrooms are extremely comfortable with lovely decor. Your staff are amazing - properly trained and taking their role very seriously. Our wedding manager was so helpful and responded promptly to any query. The wonderful location, the quality and efficiency of your team, combined with the months of planning the couple worked so hard on resulted in a fairy tale wedding that will give us all happy memories forever.

We found working with Bijou a real delight. They are the consummate professional from the moment we first visited the venue to the moment we said 'I do' on Friday 31st March, 2017​. They made sure everything was organised and planned well - the online planner was incredibly useful and straight-forward and really put us at ease to make sure everything was communicated and planned. We absolutely loved the venue and it worked perfectly for us - we had so many guests asking us where we found such a beautiful venue! Our planner, Aly was just superb, she left no stone un-turned and made some great suggestions. The food was absolutely superb - the quality was incredibly high and the team dealt with my dietary requirements and those of others incredibly well. Congratulations.

My husband and I had the most perfect day at Cain Manor. Many guests commented on how relaxed the day was which was definitely enabled by the Bijou team at Cain Manor helping everything to run smoothly. Setting up the venue when we arrived in the morning was so easy with the help of everyone and the tables looked beautiful - just as we'd hoped. The food was also absolutely amazing and we had many guests comment on this and say that it was the best wedding food they've had. The staff who managed the day and also the night manager were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the entire day.

Hi Ann, Thank you SO much for your help planning the wedding and reminding us of all the things we had to do. We had the perfect day, and the staff on the day were amazing at sorting out the hiccups. They were so flexible and accommodating and efficient, it was much more than I could have hoped for! The guests all had a great time, as did we. Also compliments to the chef as everyone raved about the food, particularly the lamb and dessert! The venue looked amazing, (even in the rain) and all the guests loved it.
