The most stunning venue!
I've been lucky enough to have worked with the team at Layer Marney Tower wedding venue many times now. I love capturing weddings at this beautiful venue. The grounds are always stunning and has so many gorgeous backdrops for WOW factor images! Karen and her team work really hard behind the scenes and make so much effort before and on the day to ensure that a wedding goes smoothly and every couple feels looked after and special. I can't wait to come back to photograph more wonderful days here.

Our perfect day
I was recommended to view Layer Marney Tower by a friend as I'd previously never been there. From the moment we drove in and saw the horses, I knew it was more "us" than any other venue we had viewed. The Tower is breathtaking, as are the grounds which make for perfect photo opportunities. We were well looked after by Karen from the start, no request was too much trouble. Our wedding itself was amazing. Everything ran smoothly from being picked up in the Rolls Royce to the stunning wedding breakfast. We had the most magical day, as did our guests. Thanks to the beautiful surroundings, we have the most gorgeous photos and memories we will cherish forever. We topped our day off with a stay in the De Zoete bridal suite. I really couldn't have asked for more.

A Stunning & Fabulous Historic Venue
Like any 2020 wedding some re-planning and re-sizing was required as we sought to navigate the constantly evolving government rules. The team at Layer Marney Tower were brilliant, helpful & accommodating throughout. It's a tremendous setting offering something really 'stand-out' and guests were certainly impressed by this gem tucked away in the north Essex countryside!

Perfect day
Layer Marney is a beautiful building which is perfect for a wedding venue. We had a lovely day and despite covid and the weather being against us, Karen and Nick did everything possible to accommodate our needs and requirements. We had our dog at the wedding and he was made to feel very welcome and made a fuss of. We had a great experience with Layer Marney Tower and would recommend the venue.

A truly unforgettable day!!
We had such a memorable day. Everything was perfect. The Corsellis Room (ceremony room) has the wow factor and the grounds of Layer Marney Tower are just fabulous for the wedding photography. The catering by Bouquet Garni was faultless and we can’t thank the team at Layer Marney enough for how seamless the whole process was. They really put us at ease every step of the way and nothing was too much trouble. Everything was so special from the moment of being picked up in the Rolls Royce heading to the venue to our stay in the honeymoon suite after our reception finished. A day we will fondly remember.

I have worked at the stunning Layer Marney Tower organising THE Wedding Fayre...! there for many years. I look forward to working with them at every show. Karen Brand the wedding co-ordinator is very experienced & always so helpful & calm and owners Nick & Sheila Charrington are completely hands on and charming people to deal with. The building itself and the grounds are just sublime- so atmospheric and SO romantic, the photographs from couples weddings here are just out of this world!
