Jon was a real star in the evening, chatting with guests and being really helpful throughout. Thanks again, and Ann we both really appreciate everything you‘ve done over the course of planning our wedding day.

Hi Ann and all the team at Notley Abbey, I finally had all the wedding photos so thought it was a good opportunity to write and thank you for all of your support - and share some pictures! We had the most fantastic day - the pictures capture all of the joy, it was overflowing all day, everyone had the best time. From the moment I arrived in the morning, Lisa was fabulous, put me at ease, and looked after me so well. She was amazingly thoughtful, dealt with a slight lunch hiccup very professionally (my guests fault!), and generally steered us all like the captain of a slightly chaotic ship. She also put my boys at ease and gave us some training on how to walk down the aisle - it was all very much appreciated! The staff were incredible all day actually. Kerry was also great when she took over. All of the staff are so friendly, professional and so happy and genuine too. It really made the day extra special. Many of the guests commented on it as well. A special thanks to Ann, for putting up with all of my emails, and calmly pointing me in the right direction with the planner. It all felt so easy. The food tasting day was the best!! As I couldn’t actually eat at the wedding, I was glad I had had the opportunity to eat the delicious food. Thanks again!

I just want to say that we couldn't have asked for more from you all. From the very first time we came to visit Notley and was shown round by Ushi, to Wedding Planning Wednesdays and all the emails on here, through to yesterday. Lisa was incredible, as was Ushi. I was so happy when Lisa said that my dress was ‘so Notley’ :) the food, drink, staff were perfection. Thank you thank you thank you!

Dear Bijou, We would like to thank everyone who was a part of our special day at Cain Manor on Thursday 26th July. The day ran incredibly smoothly and we cannot fault a thing. Everyone was extremely efficient and well trained in how to serve guests throughout the day. Set up was made very easy and quick due to the helpful staff ensuring suppliers knew what to do and making sure everything looked beautiful. You also kindly checked on myself and the groom throughout the day to make sure we were kept happy and calm. Numerous guests commented on how successful the day was and what a lovely feel there was and this is all down to you and how well your systems work. We are attending a wedding at Botleys Mansion in September and know that if our wedding is anything to go by, it will be spot on and beautiful! Thank you again!

We had the most perfect day on Saturday - every single thing was better than we could have possibly imagined. The staff were unbelievably helpful and professional, the food was delicious and there wasn't a single guest who didn'tcomment on how wonderful the setting was. Thank you so much!

We wish to write to you to say a big thank you for ensuring our wedding day went so smoothly. We had a fab memorable day and the the house and staff were all part of that. Special thanks to Emma for having to deal with all my emails timely; to the two Sarahs (especially evening Sarah for handling the drag dj with a great sense of humour); and lastly Guy, who was there ensuring all was set up and coming to the rescue in fixing the button holes. The guests all commented on how amazing the house looked and how tentative the staff were during the wedding reception (perhaps too tentative for ourchampagne hungry friends lol). Please thank the Chef also as the food was wonderful and everyone still is praising the Sticky Beef.
