March 2017 Wedding

“Paul and I had the absolute pleasure of getting married here on Sunday 19th March, 2017 and I cannot thank the staff enough for well and truly making our special day one to remember.  The grounds are amazing and the backdrop of the Tower is just beautiful. This is a must see venue for any couples planning on getting married and Karen was fantastic with us from the very first meeting right up until the morning after the night before –  LOL.  Thank you again Layer Marney Tower, you will be forever in our hearts”.

An Autumn Layer Marney Wedding

“I attended a wedding at Layer Marney and it was the most amazing day.  The Tudor Gatehouse was a fabulous backdrop for the photos.  The fireworks at night were something else.  As we walked into the garden we were met with brilliant sunshine and an incredible Scottish pipe and drum band.  The atmospthere created was truly memorable.  This venue would be hard to top.  The staff were really professional and kept us topped up with drinks and hors d’oeuvres.  The main dining area was beautiful.  Great high celings and gave the impression of being in a medieval banquet.  The entire day was simply wonderful and anyone considering hiring this as a venue will not be disappointed.

Wedding Guest – Trip Advisor Review January 2017

“What a truly amazing day, words are not enough to describe the fabulous wedding.  Karen, the Wedding Organiser, was fantastic, so professional, a true credit to herself, made the ceremony perfect.  The Caterers, Bouquet Garni, were amazing, from the setting up to providing a flow of drinks, canapes etc, all the staff were amazing!  The meal was fabulous.  Everything flowed into a tremendous day!  A wonderful venue to have your perfect wedding to becoming Husband and Wife”

Karen and her team were fantastic in ensuring the booking went smoothly.  We had Graham and the Silver Cloud for our transport and he was a coplete gentleman…We had such an amazing day and would definitely recommend Layer Marney Tower for a day to remember”

Michelle and Aaron – October 2016

Everyone was so good and keen to help.  It felt very personal having the owners involved and even driving the bus, which was great fun.


Emily and Niall – August 2016

We received so many nice comments about the venue, food, location etc and would highly recommend Layer Marney Tower to anyone and everyone!


Michael and Clare – September 2016

We had the most amazing wedding.  The food was exceptional, the staff were fantastic and the venue was beautiful.  Thank you so much.


George and Emily – July 2016

The LMT Team – particularly Karen – made all our preparation so easy, and no questions seemed to phase them.  And Bouquet Garni were just as happy to help us – and to cater for all the little “extras” we asked for.  The ways in which everyone was able to accommodate our requests and customisations meant that we’re still so impressed and would recommend LMT and BG without hesitation.  THANK  YOU!


Graham and Ross – May 2016

I married my beautiful wife at Layer Marney Tower on 7th October 2016 and it was absolutely perfect, all the staff were amazing and very helpful.  Highly recommended. 10 out of 10 from me.


Scott – October 2016

If  you are looking to book your wedding, please consider this venue…Layer Marney Tower, I married my best friend, but you also have a piece of my heart.


Nigel and Kirstie – August 2016

Everyone we have dealt with has been extremely helpful and professional throughout, particuarly Karen for answering all of our queries and Janet for looking after us on the day.

We had the perfect day in truly amazing surroundings!


Kate and Phil – October 2016

Both Paul and I find it hard to let go of arrangements and entrust such a big day to other people. That was probably the hardest part, but i can honestly say, hand on heart, that the organisers and staff at Layer Marney Tower and Bouquet Garni were extremely professional and reliable and EVERYTHING ran like clockwork.


Hannah & Paul, September 2015

There was that wonderful bath and four poster bed waiting for us in the de Zoete Suite.


Alcina & Andrew, December 2015

I’d like to add is how smoothly everything went, thanks to the way in which the caterers (and florist and music) worked with Layer Marney Tower and us. Both meeting up before, Andrew popping into Layer Marney Tower with our bags before the wedding and collecting our leftovers from the kitchen the following morning – it was all laid back and friendly but at the same time, totally efficient.


Alcina & Andrew, December 2015

Karen was an amazing help all the way through the planning process right down to helping the bridesmaids figure out when to walk – and firing up the elevator for my 90 year old grandmother. Everyone at Layer Marney was incredible and greatly surpassed our expectations.
