September 2017 Wedding

Gregg and I got married at Layer Marney Tower on 5th August, 2017 at mid day and absolutely loved it!  We had visited the Tower in the past way before we were engaged and we both loved the place and history.  It wasn’t till we looked around for wedding venues, we had such a lovely feeling for the place and knew it was the perfect venue to get married. The staff were amazing! So quick at responding to questions……….If you are thinking of a beautiful historical venue, with great staff, get married at Layer Marney Tower!!

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”

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!
