What makes your venue stand out from the rest?

Notley Abbey is a wedding venue rich in history as it was once the home of Sir Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh. This medieval masterpiece epitomises glamour and this becomes apparent from the one-of-a-kind romantic, tree-lined driveway that leads up to the glorious home. With historic features throughout, a top-notch wedding service and 24-hour exclusivity, Notley Abbey is a must-see wedding venue for any engaged couples in the Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire or Thame areas.

Do you conduct civil ceremonies?

Yes, Notley Abbey holds a licence for civil ceremonies both inside the house and out.

Ceremony and reception facilities

There are two internal areas to get married at Notley Abbey or the ‘nook’ in the Walled Garden for couples wishing to get married outdoors. The Abbot’s Hall features high, oak-beamed ceilings, oak floors and over-sized windows that let in floods of natural light; ideal for your wedding photographs. The Monks’ Refectory is unique in its own way. Dating back to 1162, the stone walls, barn-style ceilings and a Minstrel’s Gallery make this one-of-a-kind room completely unique.

Number of guests that can be catered for

Notley Abbey can cater for up to 190 guests during the ceremony and up to 250 for an evening reception.

Availability

Notley Abbey is available to host sensational weddings throughout the year.

Three words that describe the venue

Best spot for photographs?

A wedding photo must-have at Notley Abbey is the newlywed couple kissing in the romantic driveway leading up to Notley Abbey. The tree-lined drive epitomises beauty and will create an unforgettable moment for the bride and groom. The exterior of the historic home also provides the perfect, romantic backdrop in any season.

A message from the managing director:

“We are extremely proud of Notley Abbey; from the magnificent driveway to the fabulous exterior and welcoming reception rooms that are rich in history but decorated to the highest standard. Notley Abbey is the ultimate party house and we love hosting weddings whether the sun is shining or there’s snow on the ground.” Managing director, Sam Cutmore-Scott
