Sevil & Andy

The wedding day was brilliant and we just wanted to say that the Bijou staff were fantastic. When we arrived the wedding party was a bit stressed, but the actions of the staff and in particular the wedding managers calmed us right down and made us all feel so supported and worry free all day. Everything was just taken care of and made to feel so simple! And it wasn't just the staff, the food and drink were amazing - we wish we could come back and have the canapés again - we just loved the arancini! And the venue itself was just beautiful and perfect - even in the rain! Thank you Aly for answering all the random questions, and putting everything together for us - it made our lives so much easier! So finally, thank you so much Bijou - it was a beautiful dream come true.
