The Bijou Team did everything to make us, our family and friends feel totally at home throughout the duration of our wedding weekend at Chateau du Bijou. The venue is outstanding, the grounds are incredible and the staff were top-notch. From the moment we arrived for our visit, the staff put our minds at ease. Planning a destination wedding can sound daunting, and with both of us in full time work, we were slightly nervous as to whether we could still have full in-put on every element of the day. Bijou made this easy. They were brilliant to work with in terms of communication and we found their online planner invaluable. We celebrated our dream wedding abroad at Chateau du Bijou – Thank you so much to everyone at Bijou for making this happen.

What a venue! Absolutely stunning, and we were lucky to have the perfect weather too. A big thank you to all the staff who couldn’t have done any more for us. We feel very lucky to have been invited to such a wonderful weekend and only wish we could have stayed longer! Our room in one of the on-site gites was beautiful. We would definitely be recommended this venue to anyone looking to get married in France – especially as it’s actually really easy to get to. Thank you once again!

To the Chateau du Bijou team,

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend for my cousin’s wedding in July.

You are all a credit to Bijou Weddings and we felt like we were in very good hands throughout; nothing we asked was too much and everything was done with a smile. The venue and grounds are stunning and it was very apparent that the team worked tirelessly to ensure the Chateau stayed that way over our 3 night stay. 

Compliments to the Chef also for delivering an exceptional array of delicious food. A lot of guests were saying that it was the best wedding banquet they’d ever had!

I will certainly be recommending you to my friends/family.   

Thanks again!

We just wanted to say a big big thank you for an amazing wedding day at Notley on Saturday. Casey and her team could not have been more helpful from the moment we arrived until when we left. She was also very good at calming my bridal nerves and emotions! The venue looked stunning, and the food was amazing . All our guests were blown away by Notley. Please pass on our thanks to all the staff.

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.

We had the most fantastic day and can’t thank the staff enough for all their hard work and incredible attention to detail on the day. Everyone was absolutely brilliant especially Lisa who put me at ease and made sure my vision for the day came to life perfectly!

Kate & Andrew

Just to say that we really really enjoyed our big day at Notley Abbey so thank you very very much to Jess and the rest of the team for making it happen. We will cherish the memories for the rest of our lives.

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.
