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.

The whole wedding day ran so smoothly all we had to worry about was having a good time! Food was excellent, big shout out to Kim who was attentive approachable and clearly loves what she does. Only complaint was the rooms were a little warm and they fixed this straight away. Brilliant would highly recommend.

Our Wedding
Venue Service

By Lisa Draper, on 26 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 04 Oct 2019

we would highly recommend the west tower as the perfect wedding venue, we recently had our wedding reception there. The grounds and the building is kept to a very high standard and is very picturesque. The staff are outstanding as no task is too big for them and the food is out of this world.

Our Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Jordan Weller, on 26 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Sep 2019

The most wonderful venue with the best team of staff you could ever ask for. Organised in advance to perfection by Maria, with all the stress on the day taken away by Kim who, with a constantly beaming smile, was always one step ahead of whatever we needed, ensuring everything ran like clockwork. We were made to feel like family, with nothing ever being too much trouble, allowing us to have the perfect day in the most idyllic setting imaginable.

Our Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Katie Middleton, on 28 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2019

Thank you to all the amazing staff for helping to make our wedding day run so smoothly. It was perfect from start to finish and we cannot thank the team enough for looking after us every step of the way. They couldn’t do enough for us! We got married here on 15th September 2019 and Maria was our coordinator. She went above and beyond to answer all my questions in the lead up to the big day, and it made me feel so calm knowing we were in safe hands from the offset. West Tower as a venue is absolutely stunning; the interior décor is elegant and can be dressed however you like to add your own individual touch. The exterior is equally as beautiful with grounds situated in the heart of the countryside. The village of Aughton is very picturesque and some of our guests made a weekend out of it, with plenty of lovely accommodation to stay nearby. Everyone commented on what a fabulous venue choice we made! West Tower was the first and only venue we viewed and I knew straight away it was the one for us!! The food was also exceptional – we loved the midnight buffet the staff had prepared in the bridal suite when we finally went to bed after a long night of dancing. The whole experience was exactly how I dreamed it would be and I would recommend West Tower to anyone! Thanks again, Mr & Mrs Middleton x

Our September Wedding
Venue Service

By Bella Smith, on 26 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Sep 2019

Myself and my now husband got married here on Saturday 14th September 2019. Maria was our wedding coordinator and Alex our coordinator on the day. I honestly can not say enough nor explain enough about how amazing, professional and calming Maria is. From the get go she has answered all my queries quickly and efficiently, always been on hand to help, and genuinely could not do enough for us! Alex on the day you ran everything from beginning to end so perfectly, nothing went wrong and if it did your that good at your job I have no clue! The staff where happy to help and always smiling. This wedding venue is the most magical and beautiful wedding venue by far! Everything is amazing and I can’t thank you all enough honestly! All our love Mr and Mrs Smith x

Our Amazing Day
Venue Service

By Kimberly Nangle, on 26 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2019

We booked this venue on our first visit, it was the first venue we viewed & we knew straight away it was the one. I can’t thank the staff at west tower enough for our perfect wedding day. Every email or query I had in the months, weeks, days before was responded to immediately by the amazing Alex. Everything on the day ran so smoothly thanks to Kim & Alex. The staff here are so helpful and friendly & it’s the perfect place to get married. Thank you for an amazing wedding day x

August Wedding
Venue Service

By Shannon Dean, on 26 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2019

It is simply beautiful and fills you with excitement immediately. The stunning building and the grounds it is set in, are matched only by the wonderful and passionate staff, who support you every single step of the way, from the first visits at open evenings to your wedding day itself, taking care of every detail with passion and confidence. Special mentions must go to Alex, our wedding planner who was simply brilliant throughout, we were at ease immediately and our questions and requests (of which there were many!) were always accommodated and explained perfectly. As master of ceremonies, Kim guided us throughout our day with a clear wealth of experience and expertise. Kim somehow managed to organize timings and numerous people wonderfully, even finding time for practice runs with our young Page Boy and Flower Girls in walking down the isle, all whilst keeping me calm in the hours and minutes before my ceremony. The whole day from start to finish was seamless, with not one single issue or concern and every aspect of our wedding day was as expected and promised, the team at West Tower look after every detail without prompt, allowing us to truly absorb the day and occasion with our guests. Kim made sure we had small moments to ourselves throughout the day to take in the moments and always made sure our glasses were full! The food was absolutely incredible, from the wedding breakfast to the canapes, evening buffet and midnight feast (a fantastic addition!). Simply put, my husband and I had the dream wedding day, and that was largely in thanks to West Tower and it's amazing staff who are a credit to it. We would absolutely recommend West Tower for anybody looking for a perfect wedding.

Our Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

By Emma Ginger, on 01 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2019

We booked our wedding back in February 2018 and the countdown to 19th August 2019 began. From the initial meeting at West Tower, to the menu tasting, our final meeting and finally our wedding day everything was perfect. The staff at West Tower are brilliant. Our wedding coordinator Alex was always at the end of her emails with a prompt response, even to the most stupid questions. Our wedding day ran so smoothly. I had some of my students come to perform and West Tower ensured they had everything they needed, which put my mind at ease. They set up the room exactly as I had imagined it would be. The food was delicious, maybe even better than the menu tasting day!! Everyone commented how lovely the venue was & how nice the staff were. We couldn’t have picked a better venue to get married. We loved every second of it. ??
