The Setting

Notley Abbey is a dream, home-from-home wedding venue located on the border of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. This historic abode, which was once the home of Laurence Olivier, can now be your dream home, exclusively, for 24 hours.

From the moment you approach the venue from the one-of-a-kind tree-lined driveway, you’ll realise how special Notley Abbey really is.

The Vibe

Notley Abbey is the ultimate party wedding venue. A relaxed vibe is apparent from the moment you walk through the historic doors and into the grand entrance hall, which is as beautiful in the summer as it is with the roaring fires in winter.

Hiring the wedding venue on an exclusive use basis gives you the opportunity to celebrate your day in complete luxury, guaranteeing that you, your family and friends are looked after explicitly by the Bijou Team. The country house wedding venue and grounds will provide your photographer with an unlimited amount of wonderful photographic opportunities and you will leave Notley Abbey the morning after your wedding with a lifetime of memories.

Choose to get married in the intimate Abbot’s Hall, the elegant Monks’ Refectory, or why not say ‘I do’ outdoors? Dine in complete luxury as the Bijou Team transform the Monks’ Refectory into the ultimate romantic banquet setting. Then, dance the night away with your nearest and dearest before retiring up to one of 9 beautifully appointed guest bedrooms.

On top of hiring Notley Abbey exclusively, you’ll also receive specialist wedding planning support, an expert in-house team of banqueting chefs and access to Bijou’s proprietary online wedding planner.
