Thanks everyone at Bijou for a great day on Saturday. The service and management of the event was excellent and we had the perfect day. Even the rain made it better as everyone remained in the house and couldn’t disperse, adding to the atmosphere. A special mention to the waiting staff during the banquet - I have had a number of comments from guests saying how professional and seamless it was.

Philippa, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself, Casey, Ann and the rest of the Bijou team who all helped make our wedding day the best it could be. We had a wonderful day and so did our guests - we’ve had no end of compliments on not just the beauty of Notley, but the quality and service level too. We wish we could do it all over again!

Ann, I just wanted to say a quick thank you to you and your amazing team for making our day so special with the personal and intimate feel that we wanted. We truly felt like we were at home. Our guests were just in awe of Cain Manor and we have received such wonderful feedback from everyone with regard to the excellent service you provided, the food and the wonderful accommodation. As most couples probably say, we wish we could do it all over again, and we both actually had a tear in our eyes when we left on Sunday morning...we have really enjoyed the whole experience, and I have to say that the planning was made so much easier with your help. Everyone on the day was brilliant, Rachel and Sienna were just amazing, they made us feel so relaxed and even if things were manic, they made sure we had no idea!!  Johnny in the evening was a star, he kept everything ticking over and kept an eye on our float and even had time for a chat in the evening before we went to bed... we couldn’t have asked for any more. The professionalism of the young waiters and waitresses were a credit and they worked so hard all so polite and professional. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! If we ever win the lottery and get to renew our vows, who knows, one day we may come back!!

From start to finish we received first class service from all involved. Jennifer was brilliant when responding to our questions and helping plan our day. Dean was very helpful when we went for our food tasting and Siena couldn't have been more professional, fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for her and the team on our day. It was also a nice touch that John introduced himself in the evening if we needed him. Not only was the venue the perfect setting but all of the staff from the waiting staff, grounds men and anyone behind the scenes really all played such an important part in making everything run like clockwork. The food was amazing and everyone commented on how lovely it all tasted. We were very grateful that you adhered to our dietary requirements, we don't think there was a scrap of food left on any plate. Once again thank you for making our day perfect and we won't hesitate to recommend Cain Manor as a wedding venue.

Dear Team, I would like to say a massive thank you to all of you for the help and guidance throughout planning our wedding, right up to the moment I walked down the aisle and when we had breakfast the following morning. Words cannot explain how brilliant and helpful your staff were. Lisa was particularly fantastic, she looked after me all morning making sure I was ready on time, even down to buttoning up my dress! I can't thank you enough Lisa for putting myself and my family at ease, we felt so well looked after. Guy was also great in the evening, he made sure our drinks were constantly topped up and that everyone was having a fun all night. Thank you! The other staff members were so happy to help at any stage it really made us feel special on such an important day. The young gent who took our 12:30am drinks orders in the Library must have been working all day but he was still more than happy to do anything he could to make our evening perfect. The venue was just gorgeous, we had one of the hottest days in summer but we were fully topped up with water and the drinks were served outside in the sunshine. It was lovely to be able to use the lawn games outside and to enjoy the air-conditioned atrium into the evening. We were lucky enough to have fireworks and what a spectacular backdrop it was, having the whole venue exclusive meant all of our friends and family could gather around the steps and fountain for the display which made it such a special moment. As a previous wedding coordinator and self-confessed control freak I can quite confidently say your whole team successfully put me at ease and always made us feel that everything was under control, which it was. The planning stages were made so simple with the easy to use planning website, something I logged into most evenings! On the day the whole team knew everything that was happening hour by hour, the process was very regimented and worked absolute wonders.I want to thank you again for all making such an important day for us, just perfect!
