A note to say a very big thank you to all the staff at Notley Abbey for helping us to have the most perfect day for our daughters wedding on Saturday 14th August. The organisation and smooth running of the whole day was incredible, what a great team you have. Notley Abbey really felt like home for the day. It is a beautiful venue and from their first visit Jenny and Tom fell in love with it and knew it was just perfect. It will hold a special place in their hearts I’m sure.

Thank you all – we wish we could do it all again!


Parents of the bride

Our wedding day at Notley was amazing. The Bijou team looked after us superbly and nothing was too much trouble. On the day Ian and Gemma ensured the day ran beautifully. We would like to also thank Annette who was a superstar by being incredibly flexible and helpful during the set up of the day. The little touch of offering and making orange bows from our left over ribbon to put on the seating plan cards was above and beyond. We would also like to thank the support team and particularly Maddie who accommodated all of the changes and requests as the big day approached. Our guests were all very complimentary about the venue, the food and wine and the overall service they received. Thanks again for making our day so special and memorable. We loved it.


Lisa & Mike

We just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for our wedding day on Thursday. The whole day ran so smoothly, it really was a dream come true. Maddie and Anne have been fantastic throughout the planning process. Nothing was too much trouble, including all the last minute changes after the planner was locked. Thank you so much. To the lovely ladies who met me in the reception and were constantly checking every detail was perfect, as a bride could not have asked for anything more. And a special mention to Guy. You met us when we first viewed Botleys Mansion and were the last person I spoke to on the wedding day. You are a true gentleman and the day could not have gone as it did without you. We cannot thank you enough. You are a credit to a Botleys mansion. The food and wine were fantastic and all bar and waiting staff were great. All of our guests were blown away by the venue and day.

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!

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!
