About Bijou Weddings - Notley Abbey

Aylesbury Road, Thame
Buckinghamshire, HP17 8TN

Bijou’s Notley Abbey near Thame in Buckinghamshire is a medieval masterpiece that was built in the 12th century. Once the home of Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh, Notley Abbey is steeped in history and can now be yours, exclusively, for 24 hours; privacy is guaranteed.

Notley Abbey is the perfect all year round wedding venue and is situated at the end of a truly magical tree-lined driveway. Acting as a dream home for your special day, Notley Abbey is unique, utterly beautiful and offers couples the opportunity to tie the knot outside as well as in. Epitomising both historic grandeur combined with contemporary styling, a complete renovation complements the medieval buildings and Grade 1 listing.

Say ‘I do’ in the impressive Monks’ Refectory for your wedding ceremony, ideal for between 30 and 190 guests. Then enjoy the rest of the incredible Abbey; the Abbott’s Hall, oak-beamed reception rooms featuring open fire places and nine tastefully decorated bedrooms including a luxurious bridal suite.

The outside of Notley Abbey is as impressive as the inside; its beautiful setting, the romantic cloisters and meandering River Thame offers breath-taking photographic opportunities from every angle. Plus, being an exclusive use wedding venue, privacy is guaranteed.

As with every Bijou wedding venue hire, your wedding will be supported by 5*+ banqueting, impeccable management and discreet, professional service from your initial enquiry with us.


Bijou owns five unique and truly individual, exclusive use wedding venues in the UK and South of France. Botleys Mansion, Silchester House, Cain Manor and Notley Abbey are all between 30 and 90 minutes from London, and Chateau Du Bijou can be reached within 6 hours when travelling from the UK. Boasting fabulous wedding ceremony rooms, lavish banqueting space, indoor and outdoor (at three venues) licences, giving you flexibility as to how you say ‘I do’, as well as immaculately presented grounds, your wedding day with Bijou will be an experience that you, and your guests, will remember forever. The wedding planning team at Bijou will ensure that your wedding day feels as if you’re entertaining your guests in your very own dream home.
