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 both indoor and outdoor ceremonies, with two spaces to choose from. You can say 'I do' in the light and airy ballroom or outside on the lawn under the romantic ceremony pagoda. After exchanging your vows, you can join your guests for drinks and canapés in the Cellar Bar or in the great outdoors surrounded by beautiful scenery. You can enjoy 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 the stunning ballroom, where floor-to-ceiling windows offer far-reaching views over the unspoiled countryside. Neutral wooden floors, ivory walls and delicate chandeliers create the perfect blank canvas for your chosen colour scheme. Up to 145 guests can be seated here, allowing you to enjoy the day with loved ones. As the sun goes down, you can retreat to the Leather Lounge to unwind on cosy armchairs beside an open fire.
The staff at West Tower pride themselves on offering an exceptional standard of dining and service. The talented chefs will work with your preferences to create a custom menu, referring to a designated wedding package to inspire your choice of cuisine. From hog roasts and barbecued meats to buffet meal facilities, plenty of options are available to complement your palate. The Cellar Bar offers professional bar services to allow you to sit back and raise a toast with your favourite tipple. On-site accommodation is available for up to 70 guests at this venue. The sophisticated bedrooms are well-equipped for a comfortable guest experience.

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.

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.

Thankyou West Tower for helping to make the day so special.
Our Sons Wedding
January Wedding pt 3
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.
