We had a fantastic day at Cain Manor and our guests commented over and over again on how beautiful the venue was and how good the food was. In particular, we would like to say a massive thank you to our event manager on the day, Dean. We both really felt that he went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect and he’s a true credit to the Bijou Wedding Service. From remembering an entire list of instructions I listed to him, to fastening buttonholes, putting the entire grooms party pocket squares on and making sure we had time to ourselves on the day - he was truly amazing. Thank you again for an amazing day!

We are still on cloud 9 following the perfect day on Friday. Our wedding was everything we could have wanted and more - partly due to our friends, family (and the fantastic weather!) and partly due to the exceptional service Botleys staff provided on the day. They judged everything extremely well, there was never an empty glass or a lull in proceedings. Our guests were very happy and we were too. Special mention should go to the chefs - the meal was even better that at the tasting day! Thank you again for all your help, we only wish we could have slowed the day down and made it last longer, it went by in a flash.

I attended a wedding on the 4th of November at Notley Abbey and I have to congratulate the staff who made us most welcome the service was truly superb and the quality of the food was as good as, if not better, than the best Michelin starred restaurants I have had the privilege to dine at. The venue was also incredible, overall brilliant, well done.

Hi Maddie,I can't thank you all enough at Bijou weddings and at Notley Abbey for everything you all did to make Charlotte and Tom's wedding day run so seamlessly and smoothly. It really was a such a beautiful, totally stress free and fantastic day - it surpassed all my dreams and hopes for them - they said they truly had the wedding day of their dreams - and we all had the most amazing and memorable day - thank you all so very much. We would, and many of our guests have said the same, have no hesitation in recommending Notley Abbey and Bijou weddings - everybody we have dealt with has been excellent.

My daughter's wedding took place at Notley Abbey on Friday 8 September and it could not have been more wonderful. We fell in love with the venue the first time we visited (having already seen half a dozen other wedding venues). It is such a romantic and atmospheric place. Each room downstairs has its own character and the bedrooms are extremely comfortable with lovely decor. Your staff are amazing - properly trained and taking their role very seriously. Our wedding manager was so helpful and responded promptly to any query. The wonderful location, the quality and efficiency of your team, combined with the months of planning the couple worked so hard on resulted in a fairy tale wedding that will give us all happy memories forever.

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.
