Notley AbbeyNeale's empathy as a wedding photographer is simply palpable - Brides Magazine

I distinctly remember my first visit to Notley Abbey in 2007. Before you even reach the abbey, you pass along a tree lined avenue (72 Limes) planted by the former owner of the house; Lord Laurence Olivier. I knew at that moment, it would undoubtedly be a special place; I can understand how it’s serenity must have captivated all it’s former owners.

Notley Abbey is a fairytale wedding venue in Buckinghamshire, a wonderfully romantic countryside residence marrying historic charm and beauty with 21st Century style. Licensed for civil ceremonies in and outdoors, historic Notley Abbey has embraced modern technology and offers a web-cam broadcast facility, so anyone unable to be at the wedding in person can still share a ceremony online.

The refurbished grand stone barn, or ‘Banqueting hall’, is perfect for seating anywhere from forty to nearly two hundred guests.

In addition, if you choose to celebrate a wedding at Notley Abbey, there’s a 1948 Rolls-Bentley to use in photographs plus a baby-grand piano for commissioned musicians or auto-play for the banquet. The Abbey and Grand Stone Barn all sit within beautiful  sympathetically landscaped riverside gardens creating the most picturesque backdrop for a wedding.
