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.

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’t 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’t 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.

Our Amazing Wedding!

We don’t 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!

Incredible venue

The staff were so helpful and friendly throughout I can’t 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.

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

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’t 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!

Perfect day

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

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

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

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.
