About West Tower

Mill Lane, Aughton
Lancashire, L39 7HJ

Set in eight acres of rolling Lancashire countryside, less than an hour from the cities of Manchester and Liverpool, West Tower is an impressive country house wedding venue.  Built as a private residence, today it is an exclusive-use venue retaining the style and comfort you might expect to feel when welcomed in to a beautiful home.

On arrival at West Tower, you can relax in the knowledge that your entire wedding will take place under one roof. The house is licensed for ceremonies both inside and out, in the light and airy ballroom with its floor to ceiling windows, or outside on the lawn under the romantic ceremony pagoda.

After saying your vows, join your guests for drinks and canapés in the Cellar Bar, or in the great outdoors, enjoying some fabulous photo moments beside the wishing well, on the elegant steps leading up to the house or on the picturesque lawn.

Dining takes place in our stunning Ballroom with far-reaching views over the unspoiled countryside - its neutral wooden floors, ivory walls and delicate chandeliers lending themselves perfectly to your chosen colour scheme. At West Tower, we pride ourselves in offering an exceptional standard of dining and service, our talented chefs creating your menu, perhaps using our dedicated wedding package to inspire the choices for your wedding breakfast.

As the sun goes down, you might decide to serve a hog roast or barbecue, or a tasty buffet in the Leather Lounge with its cosy armchairs and open fire.  We can accommodate up to 47 of your guests in our stylish bedrooms. Seven of which are in the main house and boast king size beds, beautiful views and elegant, contemporary décor. Each is named after a Champagne house, our favourite being Dom Perignon, the bridal suite with four poster bed and roll top bath – an idyllic setting for your wedding night.

We look forward to welcoming you to West Tower – your home from home.

Daughters Wedding
Venue Service

By Carl S, on 28 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 22 Feb 2020

We attended our daughter and new son in laws wedding on Saturday 22/02/2020,from entering the venue Saturday morning to leaving on Sunday was perfect. The staff treated our daughter like a princess,and nothing was too much trouble they attended to her every need, as for us as guests if we would have been royalty they couldn't have treated us any better. The wedding flowed like a dream due to all the work the wedding organiser did at west tower. The food was excellent as my wife does not generally eat the food at weddings on this occasion she ate all the food. At night the DJ had everyone dancing the floor was never empty. Our room in the main house was beautiful clean spacious and very comfortable. In the morning went down for breakfast plenty of choice for breakfast full English,cereal etc. Staff were very attentive asking was everything ok and would we like hot drinks,which we got in a timely manner. Could not fault west tower venue and staff were exceptional at all times during our stay, I would definitely recommend west tower to anyone who wants a flawless,seamless well thought out beautiful wedding. Thank you west tower for making our little girls dream day extremely special and for looking after all our family during our stay there.

We attended as a family to West Tower on 22nd February 2020 for the wedding of Joanne and Chris Berry and what can I say, what a beautiful venue for a wedding West Tower is, the day was superb from start to finish it was such a magical day. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here and they catered for your every need. We also stayed over night after the wedding in the coach house and this also was accommodating and comfortable. As for the food this was delicious and perfectly chosen by Joanne and Chris. We as a family would certainly recommend anyone thinking of getting married at West Tower as a wedding venue you won’t be disappointed. Thank you so much xxx

Sisters Wedding
Venue Service

By Lynsey R, on 28 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 22 Feb 2020

I have just returned from West Tower after attending my sister and brother in laws wedding. I have got nothing but praise and positive feedback for the venue and staff. Although my sister and brother in law, along with some family members, spent a long time organising the various parts of their wedding day, their perfect day would not have happened had it not been for the help of the wonderful staff and beautiful venue of West Tower. The rooms in the main house were spacious, clean and decorated in keeping with the venue. The ceremony room was beautiful. The staff were amazing, I could not ask for more. Everyone was so helpful from the wedding planner, bar staff, cleaners and waiting staff. I would recommend West Tower for a wedding venue to anyone planning a wedding. Thank you so much for helping to make the day so special!

Where to start....we booked our big day back in November 2017 with the welcoming, friendly team at West Tower. From the very beginning, they have not only been very helpful, have been extremely accommodating with our wishes and dreams for our big day! All the planning for the big day has been seamless, nothing was ever too much trouble for the amazing staff at west tower. On the day of our wedding, we cannot put into words how incredibly perfect everything was, from the large set up to the smallest little details. The presentation of the venue was absolutely immaculate, Kim the event manager is one in a million and absolutely amazing at what she does. The food was out of this world with everyone commenting on how good it was. All the staff were extremely attentive and accommodation, especially Josie who was like Kim’s right hand woman. The venues rooms and accommodation are in incredible and well worth every penny to stay with just your friends and family. Everyone commented on how amazing the rooms were and how beautiful the new ‘stables’ were. The breakfast was served hot and on time with plenty to go round for everyone. We would highly recommend West Tower to anyone thinking of an exclusive venue, trust us, this is the one!!! If you want a day to remember where you and your family are centre of attention and have an exclusive wedding experience, look no further than west tower. Thank you to the whole team at west tower for blowing us away with how amazing everything was, you are all a credit to this stunning venue

Sons Wedding Day

By Robert Berry, on 28 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 22 Feb 2020

Our youngest son and daughter-in-law were married at West Tower in February 2020. The facilities and staff ensured that everything ran like clockwork. And I'm sure that the significant planning and attention to detail that the happy couple input was very much appreciated by all guests. The canapés, ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening entertainment were excellent. The bar prices were very reasonable. Thankyou West Tower for helping to make the day so special.

Our Sons Wedding
Venue Service

By Bev McCarrick, on 16 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 08 Feb 2020

Yesterday we celebrated the marriage of my youngest son John and his beautiful partner Amy and I cannot thank the team at West Tower enough. From start to finish the day was beautiful. The venue perfect and the staff, from their Wedding Coordinator, the bar staff and the waiting on staff were all amazing. Nothing too much trouble they even got out a sewing kit to repair a guests dress ! Not only did they make the bride and groom feel special but also every one of their guests was looked after perfectly. Food was amazing, the accommodation 5* altogether a perfect day. We would recommend West Tower to any couple wanting to celebrate their special day at West Tower. A huge thanks to all the staff from a very proud and happy Mum and Dad

January Wedding pt 3
Venue Service

By Jayne Tonnessen, on 07 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 25 Jan 2020

Although everything had been timed and planned, I never felt like it was rushed or we were on an agenda, if anything it just felt relaxed and stress free. The food was all amazing and the catering for allergies must be commented on as some of our GF guests said it was nice to be included in all the food available all day as often, they are excluded. All the dietary requirements were catered for throughout the day. We didn’t get chance to meet any of the catering staff, but we would like to thank then for the delicious food. Moving between the ceremony, the reception drinks, the wedding breakfast and the evening reception was seamless, and I think our guests loved the Cellar Bar and the fact they didn’t feel they were sat around waiting at any point. Some told us it was the best wedding they had been to. The people we would like to single out are Zara, Kim and Josie. Zara, thank you for being so helpful through all our planning and helping us with any queries. Kim thank you for giving us such a beautiful stress-free day and Josie, you are a credit to the West Tower. We loved every aspect of our Wedding and would not change a thing and we would highly recommend the West Tower if you are looking for the ideal place to get married.

Whilst waiting for our day to arrive we also booked onto the Festive Lunch which we enjoyed with our little girl and parents. It was a lovely day and made us even more excited. It gave us an idea of how things would be on the day and how seamless everything flowed. Zara kept close contact throughout the months and answered any emails or queries we had and basically just made sure that we had no stresses about anything. A few weeks before the wedding we had our planning meeting which we discussed every minute of the day to make sure it would all go to plan. This was followed up a week before the wedding day and was when we met Kim who would be the person to coordinate everything on the day. She was amazing and had such a great personality which instantly made us feel at ease. The big day finally arrived, and it was all we hoped for. We were greeted by Kim and Josie (who had been with us for our taster and festive lunch) and they were so helpful in the preparation for the ceremony, with bringing some drinks to the room and also checking on us to make sure we were ok and if there was anything we needed. Walking down the aisle was an important moment for us all especially with our daughter and I feel that it was probably the most special moment on the day. Josie also shared in the joy of her walking down the aisle too, which I thought was really touching. The rest of the day went like clockwork.

We got engaged last April and by the following weekend we had booked our wedding at the West Tower. From our first meeting with Maria we just loved the place and as we wanted a winter wedding it was the perfect venue as everything was in the one place. A few days after our wedding was booked, were emailed by Zara who was to be our wedding coordinator, making sure all we hoped for on our day happened and to answer any number of questions that we might have had. We took full opportunity of the open evenings which are held each month, and this just made us fall in love with the venue even more. In our wedding pack that we got to help us plan our wedding, we could use the room plan to work out which room would be best for the guests and also because we could go back to each open night, we were able to take friends and family with us so they too could see the venue ahead of the big day. A few months before the wedding we attended our Taster Day. This was a great day where we got to each choose a different meal for our three courses to decide what we wanted on our wedding day. The staff serving that day were so lovely, asked for our feedback throughout and took an interest in how our plans were coming along. We had some time with the Bar Manager who talked us through the different wines that we could chose from. He too was so friendly and was more then willing to answer any questions we had about what we wanted to happen on the wedding day.
