Boreham House Wedding Reviews

Me and my husband were searching for the perfect venue for our wedding for a year and as soon as we drove down their beautiful grounds we instantly knew this was the venue for us. We created so many memories on our wedding day, all the guests loved how stunning the scenery and marquee was. Our wedding pictures wouldn’t be so gorgeous if it wasn’t thanks to the exquisite views and backgrounds at Boreham House. The staff were very friendly and professional, I’m extremely pleased with how everything ran so smoothly and efficiently. I also wanted to add the most important thing was that the food was absolutely incredible!! My husband & I are such foodies and we couldn’t have been happier with the menu they created and executed for us. Thank you to Teresa, Gemma, Amanda & the entire team. xx Source

Layer Marney Tower Reviews

We had our wedding here in August 2016. We cannot recommend this venue, the Charringtons and their staff highly enough. If you are looking to book your wedding please consider this venue, you will not be disappointed. The price includes an old fashioned Rolls Royce and an overnight stay for the bride and groom. I have to say I had the best shower I’ve ever had in the wet room! There is also an additional hire of an old route master bus which went down very well with our guests. The owners and staff were very accommodating in setting up the ceremony and reception rooms, we were allowed to bring our own musicians in during the day (even though they were open to the public) and were happy for us to have a firework display in the evening. Layer Marney Tower, I married my best friend but you also have a piece of my heart. Source
