Notley Abbey - An Award-Winning Country House Wedding Venue in Buckinghamshire
Notley Abbey takes no introduction as an incredibly breath-taking venue. The driveway is literally to die for and the historic property with modern touches is every bride’s dream. What the pictures don’t tell you however is how incredible the staff are at Notley and how they are the true selling point to this venue. From the first time we viewed the venue right up to our big day the staff at Notley were absolutely flawless and they held our hands throughout the whole process making sure that we were stress free at all times. Everyone told me before the wedding not to be disappointed is something goes wrong as nobody will notice on the day. I can honestly say that not a single detail was out of place and that was totally down to the staff at Notley. The waiters and waitresses were the most professional young people I have ever come across and this was commented on by all of our guests. We would absolutely recommend Notley Abbey to anyone that was considering this venue. The venue, the staff, the food absolutely every detail exceeded all of our expectations.

Thank you all so much for making my daughter’s wedding everything we had hoped and planned for. It was an amazing day in a stunning venue with staff who were so professional and welcoming. They guided us calmly through the day and everything went smoothly. The chef deserves a special thanks as everyone enjoyed the delicious food which was promptly served to all the guests. You gave us a day to remember. We were able to relax and have fun. It was everything I had dreamed for Anna and Graeme’s wedding day and I cannot thank you enough.

We can’t thank you enough for a truly memorable day which even exceeded our expectations. The service from the staff at Botleys was impeccable and nothing was too much trouble. Both Rachel and Dan contributed tellingly to the smooth running of the day and ensured that everything ran like clockwork. We have attended a number of other weddings recently and seen how stressful it can be for the bride and groom as they spend much of their time ensuring their guests are enjoying themselves but the biggest compliment we can give is that we never experienced this at Botleys - all of the staff worked hard to ensure it was a memorable day for everyone in attendance, and especially the bride and groom! Once again, heartfelt thanks from both of us - we had a perfect day and created memories that will last a lifetime.

Ann, we had a really lovely day and wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for making everything in the run up and on the day go so smoothly. Dean was amazing, nothing was too much trouble on the day and he made me feel very relaxed and calm! My family also said he was lovely! We had really lovely comments on the venue and on the food especially! How amazing the food was and that everyone was so happy that the portion sizes were normal compared to other weddings they had been to! Thank you again to you and your team for always answering my endless questions and your help with the planning!

We can not thank you enough for how smoothly our day ran - it was seamless. You exceeded our expectations and every single member of your staff team remained professional at all times. You are so kind and made me feel that nothing was too much to ask (not that I had to ask much as it went exactly as planned).It certainly was worth every effort put it and I can see why your price points are higher than other's I've looked at. You are on another level, I felt very special.

Saturday surpassed all our expectations and was literally the best day ever. Kieran and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we couldn't have asked or wanted anything more. The staff on the day were so attentive, professional and friendly and were always walking around with a smile on their faces. Our guests commented on how wonderful the staff were and you guys really did smash it.

My husband Jon and I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone at Botleys Mansion for making our wedding day so special from start to finish on the 1st November, 2018. Also a huge thanks for all your hard work helping us along the way with the planning process to ensure everything went so smoothly. We could not have done it without you all. So professional and attentive we could not have asked for any more and could not have imagined it any better. We want to give special thanks to the members of staff who were there on the day - Casey who was our operations manager, Dean who was our night manager accompanied by Emma R, and Sarah along with Emma M on the day. Also thanks to Carol who was fabulous at our final planner meeting and Maddie for always answering our queries via email so quickly and precisely. Thank you also for our gift at breakfast - the lovely print of Botleys Mansion that we will cherish forever. I honestly cannot recommend you all enough. You were all so kind and friendly to us on the day and we felt like we were in a dream.
