Layer Marney Tower Review

I’m often requested to DJ at Layer Marney Tower Wedding Venue near Colchester, Essex, for various functions including Wedding Receptions, Birthday and Anniversary parties. After providing the music for a wedding several years ago, I was added to the Layer Marney Towers preferred suppliers list. I decided to write this Layer Marney Tower review and share with you this wonderful wedding venue and some of my own photographic work.

Layer Marney Tower Review

Layer Marney Tower ReviewThe Layer Marney Tower website describes this magnificent Tudor building as ‘Dramatic’, and I couldn’t agree more! It’s difficult to do it full justice with a camera or words.

Constructed in the first half of the reign of Henry VIII it is the tallest Tudor Gatehouse in Britain. Lord Marney died in 1523 and his son continued to build, but he too died just 2 years later. Layer Marney Towers changed hands and is now owned by the Charrington family.

Incredible brickwork with twisted chimney stacks everywhere, constructed by amazing craftsmen of their day, it captivates and ‘wows’ you from the moment you arrive.

Visitors from all around the world come to marvel at its architecture and beautifully kept grounds. Every time I visit I wander around the grounds and marvel at it, wide-eyed.

Layer Marney Tower Wedding Venue

Layer Marney Tower Wedding VenueAside from being just a tourist attraction, Layer Marney Tower doubles up as a classy wedding venue to rival any other. So individual and unique in every way, you must see it and make up your own mind.
I was fortunate to be asked to DJ at a wedding reception, and spend the afternoon and evening with guests, enjoying their moment. Armed with my camera, I explored this magnificent place with my lens.

Layer Marney TowerBride and Groom, family and friends all look their very best in the wedding photos at Layer Marney Towers. Set in rolling Essex countryside scenery which forms the perfect backdrop; There are so many nooks and crannies for superb photographic opportunities, and for a wedding photographer it’s a ‘sensory overload’.

Layer Marney Tower Review

The Grade II listed grounds offer an endless variety of shots, with well tendered flower beds, rose gardens, a huge fountain, and fields in the distance.

As you make your way in to the building, through the doors by the bar, a grand staircase awaits. Here you can create the perfect confetti shot as your guests gather round the stair case, and release their colourful blizzard on cue.

Layermarney towerHere is a totally different photo featuring the tower. The bride and groom asked me to take this, and I think it would look fabulous in black and white too.

I’ve not been to the top of the tower, but I’m told that you can see the church, outbuildings, gardens, Estate and wild life walk.

The Tea Room in the old stable offers light lunches, teas and cakes, and is open to the public except on Fridays and Saturdays.

Sparklers Archway

Imagine an archway made from sparklers. I stopped the music, and everyone was ordered outside into the courtyard. Guests were given sparklers, which on cue they lit all at once.

Layer Marney Wedding Breakfast

Guests are seated in a large main hall wich features a vaulted ceiling, lead light windows, chandeliers, beams galore, and a splendid fire place.Layer Marney Tower Wedding Reception
The resident catering team, Bouquet Garni also offer something I’ve never seen before – as an alternative to an evening buffet you can have hot pancakes with a choice of fillings! They have an old Citroen van, converted into a ‘kitchen’ with a serving hatch, to add a really unusual twist and a talking point for guests.Layer Marney Tower Weddings
The Layer Marney Tower Wedding Venue staff I have met there have all been very nice, efficient and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble for them to make your day and evening run as smoothly and enjoyably as possible.
