Wish I could do it all over again!

Such an amazing venue complimented by the amazing team who are truly the stars of the show! Our West Tower Journey spanned over 2 amazing years working with Zara to figure out our vision for the day. Our event managers for the day, Josie and Sarah (actual gems) were so amazing and I can鈥檛 even put into words how incredibly grateful I am for them. Anytime there was a tiny bit of stress on the day they almost magically appeared and sorted it right out before I could even think about it. We truly had the best day and I wish I could do it all over again!

Best Day Ever

West Tower was the most wonderful venue to get married in, they made our day so special and even with Covid happening they made sure our day was perfect. All the staff were so professional and made us and our guests feel safe. The staff have been so helpful throughout our 2 years of planning and guided us every step of the way, even on the wedding day we didn鈥檛 have to worry about a thing. Everyone had an amazing time and the day was perfect. The venue is absolutely stunning inside and outside, we fell in love with West Tower and loved it more and more every time we went. Would highly recommend this venue to future brides.

Beautiful venue

We first visited West Tower in summer 2023 following our engagement, the venue was beautiful and sold itself to us then!... We started with some enquiries to consider the different types of wedding days available through speaking with Angela and Maria. In the end we opted for a Twilight Package which worked better for us for what we wanted out of the day. Communication throughout planning was brilliant, we spoke to Maria via email, telephone and in-person, we really enjoyed the process and felt like it was hard to believe we weren't the only couple getting married here - a very personable and professional approach. We met Kim the event coordinator just before the wedding, her enthusiasm was fantastic - she ensured the whole day went to plan and nothing was ever too much trouble.

The bride and bridesmaids utilised the venue in the morning ahead of the wedding, James and his team again were so lovely, nothing was too much trouble. They helped with taking our items from the Cristal Suite to the Bridal Suite and communicated well with our suppliers (photography and DJ).

We held our ceremony in a church and had the West Tower accommodate our reception afterwards, it really was such an incredible and stress-free day. All our guests loved the set up for the drinks reception (seating outside available), and they had high praise for the chefs! We had opted for the hog roast, which really was delicious, there was plenty available and most people had seconds! In the evening we had the grazing cart which again was plentiful and restocked. The chef also accommodated allergies (nut) and dietaries (GF and Vegetarian). The bar was well stocked and there were never any long queues.

The day really did surpass our expectations, booking a venue like this really does relieve of any stress that may come with a DIY wedding. This place is a real treat.

Thank you to everyone who made it a memorable day.

Incredible venue

The staff were so helpful and friendly throughout I can鈥檛 fault them at all. West tower is an expensive venue but it was absolutely perfect for us. We loved how exclusive it was and our guests all said how stunning the venue is. They stayed in touch every step of the way and the food at the trial and also on the day was impeccable. Everyone left with a smile on their face and the whole day ran smoothly.

Our Amazing Wedding!

We don鈥檛 even know where to begin! We had the most amazing Wedding day that we could have asked for.

From the moment we first visited West Tower we fell in love with the place and knew this is where we wanted our special day!

The run up to the day was made so easy by the expert team at West Tower nothing was too much trouble even down to a surprise visit from our pup max which just completed our day.

The day itself could not have been any better if we had tried it was absolutely faultless every guest has told us how amazing the day was and this was down to the amazing team at West Tower.

The food was absolutely first class and received a compliment from everyone in attendance. All the dietary issues were catered for with ease.

A big massive thank you especially goes to Alex & Stephanie for all their amazing organising and looking after us all.

Thank you for an amazing day!

Thank you for supporting the NHS

I just want to say a massive thank you to Steph and everybody at West Tower. I am a student midwife and HCA at Ormskirk hospital. I have been taking extra shifts to help as much as possible at this hard and worrying time. The West Tower gave me free accommodation for a week while I was working back to back shifts. This saved me a lot of time as I commute from Blackpool, gave me the opportunity to get some much needed rest between shifts. I cannot thank you enough for your generosity. My room was beautiful and relaxing! and I must say that was the best shower I have ever had! Totally amazed by your kindness and the support you have shown to me and many other NHS staff.
Thank you so much xxx

Our Christmas Wedding

We were married here December 2019 and absolutely loved the venue, especially at Christmas time! We loved the fact that it was exclusive to us and only our loved ones were there. The staff couldn't do enough for us and then day went perfectly! Would love to do it all over again! Thank you so much for the best day of our lives!

The Best Day of our Lives

We got married at West Tower in October 2019 and it truly was the best day of our lives, we wish we could do it all again! West Tower was the only venue we visited when planning our wedding as we fell in love with it straight away. The house and grounds are beautiful and the exclusivity made our day so personal and intimate. The guest bedrooms are gorgeous and we loved that our family and friends could stay over to carry on the celebrations until the next day. The food was amazing and we had nothing but positive feedback from our guests. We booked West Tower鈥檚 recommended supplier Steve Mitchell DJ for our evening and he was great, the dance floor was full all night! The way Steve planned our first dance and following dance with our family was lovely and has given us such special memories to look back on.
The staff at West Tower are absolutely amazing and we cannot thank them enough for making sure that we really did have the perfect day. Alex and the team were so friendly and helpful throughout all of our planning process, they were always there to help with any changes, answer our questions and to provide expert advice. The staff on the day were fab, especially Kim who ensured our day ran so smoothly and we didn鈥檛 have anything to worry about. We really could relax and enjoy our day as we were so well looked after.
Thank you so much to all at West Tower, you helped us make the most special memories to last a lifetime.

December Wedding

Wow, I am not even sure where to start with our review of West Tower! Absolutely everything was incredible! Our wedding day exceeded our expectations! It really was like a dream come true, everything was perfect the best day of our lives!
Our wedding planner Alex got to know us as a couple and all the small intricacies of our wedding, thank you for all your help in the run up to the day. Your calm and collected approach really put my mind at ease through my many questions and queries as well as on the day, you are exceptional at what you do, our day would have not been the same without you!
The whole place just has a magical feeling to it, The Ballroom, The Cellar Bar, The leather lounge, the stunning bridal suite and of course the beautiful grounds! The Cristal suite is just amazing, such a lovely place for the bride to get ready with her bridesmaids.
People often ask us what was the best part about our wedding day and for both of us the best was that we didn鈥檛 worry about anything. Their operation is smooth and slick, the co-ordination they have with their colleagues and suppliers is amazing. We could relax and enjoy our day knowing everything was going smoothly and our guests were all enjoying themselves.
I think what makes West tower such an incredible place is how personal everything is. From the moment we first made contact with the venue through to leaving the day after our wedding everything was a joy. The venue is stunning and so incredibly perfect in every way! We truly experienced a fairy-tale wedding at West tower.
We will be forever grateful for all that you have done. West Tower has been forever engraved into our hearts.

Daughters Wedding

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.

Family Wedding

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鈥檛 be disappointed. Thank you so much xxx

Sisters Wedding

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!
