We have just arrived back from our honeymoon in Croatia and are still enjoying talking about our wedding day in detail. We had a magical day which was due, in a large part, to the wonderful venue, food and staff. Everything ran very smoothly and nothing was too much trouble for your excellent management team – please pass our thanks on to everyone involved in the day – particularly Lisa who was amazing!

Claire & Steven

Hi Maddie, Thanks for all your help, we had the best time ever! All of the staff were so lovely, so please pass our thanks on to Lisa, Philippa and Kerry. All of our guests commented on how nice everyone and everything was.

My wife and I attended a wedding at Notley Abbey on April 12, 2018 and I had to write and tell you what a wonderful day it was, especially, of course, for the bride and groom. Your staff were lovely, with the team who waited on providing a charming, calm, quiet professionalism that augurs well for their futures. I must also praise your kitchen staff. You are so lucky to have them. I love my food and can say without hesitation that the wedding dinner was worthy of the finest restaurants and hotels in London. May I just mention the Hampshire beef. Exceptional. Nothing could better that! So thank you for giving us a day to remember. Notley Abbey is a perfect setting for a wedding and we hope we will be granted the privilege of attending another special occasion there -soon!

Wedding Guest – Neil D.

Thank you all for the most incredible day! Everyone was amazing on the day and we can’t thank everyone enough, they made our day so special and everyone has commented on the venue, staff and food.

A massive thank you to the whole Bijou team. Our wedding day was better than perfect, and we’re so happy with how each and every element came together on the day! We live abroad, so having access to the Bijou Planner was really incredibly helpful. It makes so much sense to manage the organisation through a transparent platform that both sides always have access to – it removed the need for a lot of questions and clarifications and was very easy to use. It was also very reassuring to have the messaging system and I never had to wait more than a day for a response on there (thank you, Ann!). The wedding day itself was executed by Bijou seamlessly. When we pulled up in the car at 11am, we were greeted by the wedding day manager and she was by our sides making sure everything ran perfectly for the whole day – she knew everything that we needed even before we knew ourselves and she was such a lovely and reassuring presence. Thank you so much for everything – Notley Abbey really is a special place and Bijou has weddings down to a T! Thank you a million times.

Marie & Chris

THANK YOU for all of your wonderful help in the run up to and on the day of our wedding at Notley Abbey. It was seamless from beginning to end and we had the best day.

Charlie & James

We just wanted to say an enormous thank you for making everything about our wedding day so wonderful! We had such an incredible day. Maddie, thank you for all of your help to plan our perfect day. Please pass on our thanks to Phillippa, Jenny, Ann and our night manager, Kerry, who all made the day run so perfectly. We’d also like to thank all the staff, who did such an incredible job and have been complimented by many of our guests! Thank you so much!

Lauren & Tom

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.

Mother of the Bride

Dear Ann, I just want to thank you so much for all your help in the run up to their wedding. The day ran like a dream thanks to the care and attention paid by yourself and by Lisa and her wonderful staff. Everyone worked so hard so make Jess and James’ day so very very special.

Mother of the Bride – Sue

Hi Ann, Thank you SO much for your help planning the wedding and reminding us of all the things we had to do. We had the perfect day, and the staff on the day were amazing at sorting out the hiccups. They were so flexible and accommodating and efficient, it was much more than I could have hoped for! The guests all had a great time, as did we. Also compliments to the chef as everyone raved about the food, particularly the lamb and dessert! The venue looked amazing, (even in the rain) and all the guests loved it.
