About West Tower Exclusive Wedding Venue
Set in ten acres of rolling Lancashire countryside, less than an hour from the cities of Manchester and Liverpool, West Tower is an impressive country house dedicated entirely to weddings.
Relax in the knowledge that your entire wedding will take place under one roof. The house is licensed for ceremonies both inside & out, in the light and airy Ballroom with its floor to ceiling windows, or outside on the lawn under the romantic ceremony pagoda. Get ready from 8am in our state-of-the-art Cristal Suite dressing room.
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. 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.
After dinner, we invite you to enjoy refreshments in the Cellar Bar or on the lawn, while we prepare the Ballroom for your evening celebration. 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. And, when your special day draws to a close, we can accommodate up to 45 of your guests in our stylish bedrooms. 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.
