Layer Marney Horse Drawn Carriages are a small, fully insured family run business based south west of Colchester. Our Coachman Alan has over 30 years of carriage driving experience. You can feel in safe hands as Alan has passed The British Driving Society ‘Code of Practice Road Driving Assessment for both Pairs of Horses and Teams of Horses in Rural & Urban Environment’.
Our modern wedding carriages retain all of the elegance and grace of traditional vehicles but with modern safety features.
Because every wedding is different, please give us a call to discuss your specific requirements, we are always happy to help so we can make your day run smoothly.
We have a choice of livery coats as well as a wide range of coloured cravats for your coaching staff. We can also match in the colour on our flower garlands for your chosen carriage for the day to match your colour scheme.
We also decorate the horses with matching coloured Ostrich feather plumes of your choice.
We would welcome you to come visit us at Clears Farm to meet the horses and view the carriages in our carriage showroom.
Alan has completed the BDS Level 4 Professional Drivers qualification covering all aspects of commercial carriage driving. Alan has also been awarded his Tandem Bars at the Tandem Club’s 75th Anniversary meet which is quite a personal achievement.
We pride ourselves in being a very friendly business that thrives on making your day special by giving a very personal service.
