Layer Marney Tower
You won't forget your first sight of Layer Marney Tower. It will take you breath away. Like a Fairy-tale castle, with terracotta dolphins and fish decorating the top of the Tower, a Tower unseen until you are almost upon it, then rising magnificently above the Essex countryside. This is Tudor building on a grand scale, built to impress.
The bride arrives in style in our chauffeur driven 1930's Rolls Royce to meet her groom in the Corsellis Room for the marriage ceremony. Then their adventure begins, in this perfect wedding venue.
Layer Marney Tower is one of the most beautiful and romantic places in Britain. Whether for your Civil Ceremony or Wedding Reception or both, Layer Marney Tower makes the perfect setting for your special day. From the initial enquiry to the wedding day itself, our service and flexible approach will ensure that your day is tailor-made just for you.
The wedding ceremony generally takes place in the Corsellis Room, with its high pincer beamed roof and polished oak floor. The adjoining Tukes Chamber makes an ideal area for guests to congregate before the ceremony. The Corsellis Room seats up to 120 guests.
The Long Gallery, just across the courtyard, is used for the Wedding Breakfast. This spectacular room also has high pincer beamed roof and an oak sprung floor. There is a bar area and doors leading out into the grounds and courtyard where guests can mingle and enjoy the gardens. At night, the Tower is floodlit making it a spectacular backdrop. 140 guests can be seated around tables, the central Top Table faces the ornately carved Jacobean fireplace which in winter supplements the recently installed woodchip heating, making it a year round venue of the highest quality. The Long Gallery is a perfect blank canvas for you to bring in your own colour scheme and ideas meaning that each wedding is unique and special.
Catering is undertaken by Bouquet Garni. Their food is excellent, their menus flexible, their staff friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. They are ready to guide you through your choices to ensure that you have a memorable wedding breakfast. You may supply your own wine for the meal and we do not charge corkage. Bouquet Garni will organise a fully licensed bar and an evening menu which can include their iconic Citroen H Van which serves fabulous snacks.
