Chloe and Luke, June 2022

Thank you for a perfect day! Our guests were blown away by Layer Marney – many weren’t aware it was even there. Everything looked beautiful and yourselves, as well as Charlotte and team, couldn’t have been more helpful. You’ve all been amazing supporting us and our (many!) postponements over the last two years and we are very grateful for that. We’re so relieved we finally had our day but also sad it is over. Big shout out to Karen, she has been wonderful!
