Jennifer, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for all that you did for us and the efforts you put into making our wedding a special day. People couldn’t praise us enough for how everything turned out. All the details like the flowers and the food was amazing. The cake was just fantastic. Every detail was 100% and the bijou team was so professional. As for Dan and Guy, they were just fantastic. Dan was just amazing on the day. Everyone had a good thing to say about him. He is an amazing young man and he stepped out of his way to make sure every detail was executed. So on behalf of myself, my wife Eileen, my family and friends, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I would definitely recommend you in the future to friends for any special occasion.

I wanted to thank the whole team at Botleys Mansion on the day – they made the event very special. I particularly want to thank Guy, Dan and Sarah. The three of them made, not just the bride and groom, but the whole family feel very special. The professionalism was incredible but with a lovely touch of being treated like a friend by them and made to feel the most important person in the world. Of course they also had a great team supporting on the day. The food was delicious and all our guests have complimented us on that – which is a great compliment as all of us are real foodies! The organisation on the day was perfect – we could not have asked for more.

Thomas & Ashley

To all the staff at Bijou Weddings and Notley Abbey, From the bottom of our hearts, we would both like to say thank you for everything you have done for us in the run up to our wedding and on the actual wedding day itself. You have given us the perfect day for the rest of our lives and we are so grateful. The professionalism of all the staff, the dedication to the little details and the quality of service made our day incredibly special, and it ran like clock work which for a worrier like me was very reassuring. You have always gone the extra mile by letting us visit whenever we liked, you’ve always been quick at replying to emails and you also went out of your way to provide post cards and sticks of rock for us. We’d like to give special mentions to Ann and Jess, who are both a credit to your staff and who made our day the perfect day that it was. We will always remember our incredible wedding at Notley Abbey and so will all our guests, so thank you once again.

Sarah & Sean

We will remember it forever!

Notley Abbey takes no introduction as an incredibly breath-taking venue. The driveway is literally to die for and the historic property with modern touches is every bride’s dream. What the pictures don’t tell you however is how incredible the staff are at Notley and how they are the true selling point to this venue. From the first time we viewed the venue right up to our big day the staff at Notley were absolutely flawless and they held our hands throughout the whole process making sure that we were stress free at all times. Everyone told me before the wedding not to be disappointed is something goes wrong as nobody will notice on the day. I can honestly say that not a single detail was out of place and that was totally down to the staff at Notley. The waiters and waitresses were the most professional young people I have ever come across and this was commented on by all of our guests. We would absolutely recommend Notley Abbey to anyone that was considering this venue. The venue, the staff, the food absolutely every detail exceeded all of our expectations.
