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.

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. ??

This venue is amazing! Had our wedding here on the 13th August and even with drizzle two hours before we were able to have our dream outdoor wedding and guests loved being able to sit outside and not be far from the bar/party. Absolutely fantastic staff and couldn’t have wished for anything more!

The Most Amazing Day
Venue Service

By Natasha Evans, on 01 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2019

I don’t even know where to start!! It was the most amazing day of our lives! All our guests commented on what a beautiful venue we’d chosen, how yummy all the food was and how wonderful the staff are. It’s simply the BEST place in the world! All the staff are totally awesome but special thanks has to go to Maria who looked after us throughout the planning, Kim who goes above and beyond to make sure your day runs perfectly and also Hayley & Alex who looked after us all day. I could go on as ALL the staff are brilliant!! I felt so special all day, as did my Groom. Our guests had the best day ever! I wish we could do it over and over!! Lots of love Mr & Mrs Evo!!!

Our Amazing Day
Venue Service

By Kim Nuttall, on 01 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2019

My husband Jon and I got married at West Tower on 3rd August. We are so happy that we chose to have our reception at this gorgeous venue and we would recommend it to every one. We viewed many other venues but we fell in love with West Tower straight away. The exclusivity is a major bonus. From the moment we went to our first meeting, the staff have been nothing but amazing. We were in contact with Alex to plan our wedding and she was superb. She even responded to messages when her email said she was on annual leave. On the day, Kim also looked after us and again she was superb, nothing was too much trouble - our guests all felt that they were looked after. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. It was everything we wanted it to be - Lovely and relaxed. West Tower played a massive part there as they did not pester us once on the day for anything - we were just allowed to get on with our celebrations in the knowledge that everything was dealt with. In the evening, I especially loved how you scattered our pictures around the venue with our table names - this was a lovey touch and shows just how wonderful you are at putting on weddings. Thank you again for making our day wonderful. We are just so sad that it's over!

Our Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

By Sarah Martland, on 01 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2019

We had our wedding here on the 2nd August 2019 and it was utterly wonderful from start to finish. The staff couldn’t do enough for us and the day ran without any issues. Kim was unbelievable on the day and Maria was fantastic throughout the whole planning process. The food on the day was exceptional - something which all of our lovely guests commented on. Nothing was too much trouble. We would recommend this venue without hesitation and can’t wait to be invited to other weddings in the future just to get another taste of how we felt on our big day. Thank you West Tower for everything you did for us. What a perfect venue to start the rest of our lives... Mr and Mrs Martland - 02/08/19

We had our wedding at West Tower on Wednesday and it was just perfect from start to finish. The day ran without flaw, the staff were very attentive, and it made the day feel so relaxed, which is exactly what we wanted. Everything about the whole day was a dream! We also had Zanda magic perform for us, and so glad we did! It added so much to the day and all our guests commented how brilliant Alex was. Everything about the venue is amazing.. from the venue itself, to the stunning views, staff, and the food is also fab. 5*
