The day was absolutely flawless, the waiting staff, bar staff and DJ were brilliant, and everybody was raving about the food and
how well looked after we all were. The venue was beautiful and we got very lucky with the weather, so all in all it was a brilliant day. And of course Alex was absolutely beautiful as I knew she would be! Huge thanks to Maddie and Jo for putting up with all our questions over the last 18 months and helping us stay positive when we didn’t know if we’d be able to have the wedding we wanted – we got there in the end!


Alex & Ben

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you… we had such a wonderful wedding day and your operations team at Notley abbey were stunning! Lisa, Barbs and Urs deserve special mention as they really looked after us.


Liz & David

We just wanted to say thank you for hosting such a wonderful wedding. All the guests loved it. We had such an amazing day. thanks again can’t fault anything. Sad that it’s all over now but we have so many amazing memories.


Lucy & Simon

We can’t recommend Notley Abbey enough, we had to rearrange our wedding 4 times due to covid and they made it so easy to finally get our special day! Our wedding day was fantastic, the venue and staff were amazing and did everything possible to make our day exactly as we wanted it! We had our dream wedding and we can’t thank Notley Abbey enough for helping to make this possible!


Charlotte & James

I don’t know where to start with such an incredible day we had. Absolutely blown away! Working with you and your team in the run up was absolutely faultless and ensured the day was as we had dreamed of. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, nothing was too much trouble and the team were always a few steps ahead allowing Simon and I to really enjoy the day.
Lisa and Barbara were a god send. They really helped me throughout the day, even helping me breath before going in to the ceremony! There is so much more I could write about how fantastic it was but I would be here all day! Please pass my huge thanks on to the whole team who was part of our amazing day. You guys really are incredible!


Charlotte & Simon

We just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you so much for everything that you did for us last Saturday. We had a fantastic day and everything went perfectly. The attention to detail that you had throughout the day was amazing from making sure we had a drink and some canapés to taking us around the room before everyone else was amazing.

Thank you for everything you did.


Becky & Dan

Firstly thank you to everyone at Bijou, Wayne & I had a wonderful day. Thank you for everyones help and patience over the months. Once again, thank you for such a memorable day.


Kayleigh & Wayne

Me and Maria would just like to say thank you to Maddie and Anne for organising our planner and making it so easy to plan the big day. The day was amazing and Dan who was in charge was fantastic! He spoke to us on many occasions seeing how we were. Would highly recommend your venue to other couples!


Maria & Redmond

We had a wonderful wedding day at Botleys Mansion – it surpassed both of our expectations. Many of our guests commented on the outstanding quality of the food, professional service & the general relaxed flow of the day. It was exactly what we wanted – you did us proud. Dan, our wedding coordinator was simply excellent – he was calm, organised, extremely personable and a thoroughly professional hand on the wheel throughout. Emma, our MC, was also outstanding on what we understand was her first wedding assignment – always available to ensure the smooth running of the evening until the last guests had left. Also please pass our thanks to Guy who looked after us really well during our tasting day and, of course, Ann & Maddie in the planning office for helping us navigate the on-line system, and for their help in reorganising the entire event twice due to CV19 – particularly for securing our final date quickly after the government’s announcement of the lockdown extension on June 14th. In summary, it is by far the most expensive party we’ll ever finance, but for the day we had – and without a doubt – it was completely worth it.


Den & Harki

Harry and I would like to take this time to personally thank you all for making our Wedding day so perfect and everything we could have dreamt of. It was genuinely like a fairy tale wedding for us. We were always worried that the day could not live up to our originally planned wedding but everyone made sure the day could not be compared. It was everything we could and would have wished for. All we could say after was let’s do it all again because it just went too quickly. Dan, Rachel and Emma really went above and beyond to ensure the day flowed and that we were truly never without. They thought about everything and really made the day special for us. The food was delicious and was a highlight for everyone, we are still receiving messages about how delicious the food was and how it was the best people have ever had at any wedding before! The timings, turn around of the rooms, the set up, drinks were all fantastic and we are both very grateful to you all. We thank you so much again. Maddie and Ann, your support with the planning of the day and everything we discussed was put out on the day.

Thank you again to everyone, we couldn’t recommend the whole experience more!
