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.
