The green town of Oxford has several beautiful natural assets to boast. Its vast parklands, tamed gardens and River Thames flowing across the town render it a soothing atmosphere. There are 28 nature reserves just near the ring road. Its scenic beauty and charming history makes it a very picturesque town. Despite the fact that Oxford retains its natural beauty and ancient English charm,
the city is significantly urbanized.
There are several worth noting wedding venues in the county town of Oxford which offer several options to hold extraordinary Oxford weddings. One of them is the Notley Abbey, belonging to the Bijou Weddings.
Notley Abbey was at one time home to Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier. It is an exquisite medieval country house located between Aylesbury and Oxford. Set in 69 acres of manicured grounds, it is now run by the Bijou team of hotels and is a wonderful wedding venue. The house can be taken as a private residence to hold a unique wedding, and in spring and winter it is ideally suited for Oxford Wedding Photography enhancing the experience of the whole day.
This Grade I listed medieval building has been renovated inside with all contemporary conveniences. And the setting is perfectly romantic with cloisters and beautiful bridges. Being on the banks of the river Thames, it is great for Reportage Wedding Photographers to capture romantic moments of the couple and the celebratory mood of the crowds in natural settings.
Notley Abbey is licensed to hold civil ceremonies either inside or in the extensive gardens outside. With landscaped gardens by the river and widespread lavish trees, the outdoor celebration can bring lots of opportunities to turn your special day into a fairy tale wedding. No doubt, this is one of the best venues for Oxfordshire weddings.
The gorgeous Monk’s Refectory is now a Grand Banqueting Hall and can host 190 for a sit down dinner and 300 for a stand up reception. There are nine bedrooms, which are comfortable and serve as accommodation for the bridal party. And what is more that there are specialised services provided by professionals to look into every detail of the wedding day and to make it truly memorable. The Bijou team promises discreet service and great attention to detail.
This medieval masterpiece is a wonderful backdrop for awesome Oxfordshire Wedding Photographers to capture amazing images of the big day. Located at the end of a beautiful tree-lined driveway, the Notley Abbey is stunning in its quiet grandeur. The Abbots Hall can host 50 guests for a sit down dinner and 120 for a stand up reception. Winter weddings are notably magical in Notley Abbey. It is said that there is breathtaking winter scenery around where real fires roar and crackle merrily as you dance to the wedding music.
