Situated in Buckinghamshire, England, Notley Abbey is one of three historic and breathtaking venues owned by Bijou Weddings. Built in the 12th century, this country house was once the home of Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh. It was fully restored in the early 2000s and is steeped in history, romance and glamour. If you’re looking for an elegant Buckinghamshire wedding venue, there really is nowhere like it.
Facilities and Capacity
You and your guests will arrive down a beautiful, long, tree-lined driveway to the doors of this magnificent country home. The year-round manor has both indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces, including the ‘nook’ in the Walled Garden, with a rustic aisle leading down the perfectly-manicured lawn. Inside, you will discover Abbott’s Hall, an intimate, oak-beamed ceremony space. Vast windows flood this hall, with its stunning fireplace that dates back to Henry V, with natural light.
If you desire a bigger ceremony room for up to 164 guests, or a romantic reception space, the Monks’ Refectory is the ideal spot. Before making a spectacular entrance as newlyweds into the luxurious, chandelier-lit barn, you can start with reception drinks outside. The Refectory once hosted the daily meals of the Augustine Monks, who lived on the site from 1192. You can become part of this history as the in-house chefs whip up a delicious banquet wedding breakfast for you and your guests.
