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.

My daughter’s wedding took place at Notley Abbey on Friday 8 September and it could not have been more wonderful. We fell in love with the venue the first time we visited (having already seen half a dozen other wedding venues). It is such a romantic and atmospheric place. Each room downstairs has its own character and the bedrooms are extremely comfortable with lovely decor. Your staff are amazing – properly trained and taking their role very seriously. Our wedding manager was so helpful and responded promptly to any query. The wonderful location, the quality and efficiency of your team, combined with the months of planning the couple worked so hard on resulted in a fairy tale wedding that will give us all happy memories forever.
