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.

I am sorry this is such a belated ‘thank you’. I have now had time to absorb and reflect on the whole event. Every contact with the staff, in whatever capacity, was wonderful. You made my daughter’s wedding day something to remember. Your foresight, care and absolute consideration was truly marvellous – I absolutely mean that. You put us first in every regard. From someone serving champagne right through to the person in charge – World Class! Thank you! Mother of the Bride
