I just wanted to say a big thank your team who were present on Jessica and Sam’s wedding day. Jack and the young members of staff in particular were absolutely fantastic and so accommodating – they helped so much on the Thursday as well as the wedding day itself in terms of moving furniture, etc. All of them were very friendly and willing to go the extra mile to ensure Jessica and Sam’s wedding day ran as smoothly as possible, particularly Jack. Uschi was also brilliant – she managed matters discretely from behind the scenes and was very professional and approachable towards us all.

The wedding day was brilliantand we just wanted to say that the Bijou staff were fantastic. When we arrived the wedding party was a bit stressed, but the actions of the staff and in particular the wedding managers calmed us right down and made us all feel so supported and worry free all day. Everything was just taken care of and made to feel so simple! And it wasn't just the staff, the food and drink were amazing - we wish we could come back and have the canapés again - we just loved the arancini! And the venue itself was just beautiful and perfect - even in the rain! Thank you Aly for answering all the random questions, and putting everything together for us - it made our lives so much easier! So finally, thank you so much Bijou - it was a beautiful dream come true.

Thank you so much Holly for all your help, you were amazing from the beginning and throughout the process. Accommodating all of our requests, ensuring it seemed like nothing was an issue. You put our minds at ease at every corner. On the day, the staff were amazing. I don't know how anyone gets through a wedding without Barbara. She knew exactly what was going on everywhere, ensured everything ran on time, explained everything we needed to know, and managed a perfect balance of in control, calm yet still incredibly friendly, approachable, and fun. In short: thank you for giving us the perfect day!

Sarah & Philip

Botleys Mansion
Dear Everyone at Botley's and Bijou, Extra-special praise need to go to the two Sarahs who ran proceedings with military precision, and were able to think two steps ahead of any potential obstacles and of course Jack who took over the night shift. Please pass on our sincerest gratitude to all the waiting and bar staff that worked on our day, all of whom performed their duties to the very highest level of professionalism. Everyone commented on how stunning the venue was, which was framed beautifully by the very pleasant weather, and how great the day was overall. We should also give a special mention to the chefs and catering. The food was good on our taster/testing sessions, but was utterly sublime on the day itself. The lamb was absolutely perfect, the starter great, and the desserts - considerably larger than anticipated - went down superbly. The DJ, Neil, did a top job as well - I noticed that there were people on the dance floor, literally for the entire time he was playing - something I've never witnessed before at a wedding. Finally, our biggest thanks should probably go to Ann, who did a fantastic job of planning, replying to our emails, listening to our concerns, enduring the silly disagreements between ourselves and in the end formulating a truly wonderful event.The Cutmore-Scotts should be (and I'm sure already are) very proud of the fantastic team effort and the very polished manner in which you managed our big day.
