Bijou Weddings - Notley Abbey

Aylesbury Road, Thame, Buckinghamshire, HP17 8TN, Thame, Oxfordshire
Up to 250 guests
Notley Abbey is an utterly unique country house wedding venue on the Buckinghamshire – Oxfordshire border. This historic Buckinghamshire residence has a truly magical past – if its majestic medieval walls could talk they would tell of a millennium of the decadent celebrations of not only Hollywood royalty, but royalty itself. This beautiful country house wedding venue, alive with memories and history, is now uniquely available as an exclusive use wedding venue in which you can craft your perfect wedding day and create some lifelong memories of your own.

This beautiful wedding venue was acquired by Bijou Wedding Venues, specialists in the provision of exclusive use country house wedding venues near London and the planning and hosting of truly spectacular and unique wedding celebrations in those venues, in 2006 after several years of unfortunate neglect. The stunning wedding venue in Buckinghamshire, a listed building and registered national monument, was the subject of a long, sensitive and detailed refurbishment which had at its heart a passion for beautiful historic buildings, a love for the very best in modern simplicity and a burning desire to gently coax this historic home into the 21st century – returning it to its former glory while making it relevant, accessible and welcoming to as many couples and families as are lucky enough to cross its threshold and share in its history and romance by making it part of their own, unique, special day. This beautiful Buckinghamshire wedding venue, now returned to its former glory, is far too special to remain hidden, surrounded by its truly spectacular grounds, from the world at the end of its long, beautiful, tree-lined driveway. It is too important a historical building not to be shared. It is too perfect for hosting splendid parties not to do just that and it truly buzzes to life when full of celebration, merriment and joy.


We at Bijou invite you to make this incredible country house venue part of your story. We have transformed and upgraded it into an award-winning historic, romantic and unique exclusive use wedding venue and now our Notley team devote themselves to two things and two things only – the hosting of unique and special wedding days for our lucky couples, and the care and preservation of this remarkable building so that it will, we hope, always proudly and quietly oversee the most joyful, romantic celebrations in this wonderful corner of the English countryside.

Fitzrovia Chapel

Fitzroy Place 2 Pearson Square, W1T 3BF, London, Greater London
£1500
Up to 60 guests
The Fitzrovia Chapel is a magnificent Grade II* listed building that was originally housed within The Middlesex Hospital. The hospital no longer exists, but the chapel was beautifully preserved and restored. It now sits in the centre of the new development of Fitzroy Place.

The Middlesex Hospital was first opened in 1745, although the chapel was designed in 1891 by celebrated Victorian architect John Loughborough Pearson and completed posthumously in 1929 by his son Frank. It was built as a memorial to Major Ross MP, former Chairman of the Board of Governors of The Middlesex Hospital, and was funded by two renowned surgeons from the hospital, Lord Webb Johnson and Sir John Bland Sutton.


Awarded the prestigious Royal Institute of British Architects gold medal in 1880, JL Pearson worked on some of Britain’s finest ecclesiastical buildings, including Truro Cathedral, Bristol Cathedral and St Margaret’s, Westminster. Today the chapel has a new setting, within a modern square named after the architect (Pearson Square).


The architecture was inspired by Gothic architecture of north Germany and Italy. Within an unassuming red brick enclosure, the chapel has a simple rectangular nave with a small narthex at the entrance. JL Pearson was part of a Gothic Revivalist movement, while his son, Frank, took his inspiration from a wider palette of architectural styles. One of the most striking features of the chapel is the beautiful and ornate mosaic ceiling of the chancel.


It was designed by FL Pearson following his close study of medieval Italian architecture and, in this particular instance, of the basilica of St Mark’s, Venice, and various lesser known churches in Rome. The chapel’s chancel mosaic was first completed between 1897 and 1901, and was installed by Italian craftsmen using imported materials, as was much of the subsequent decoration of the building.
