9 Reasons to Book an Exclusive Wedding Venue

What does ‘exclusive wedding venue’ mean? Well, for some venues it means that there’s only one wedding per day, but they still may book other events such as parties or christenings. For West Tower, it means that it’s only you and your party on site on your special day. You don’t have to share it with anyone else, ever!

Here’s our top 9 reasons for booking a truly exclusive wedding venue!

This is probably the biggest factor in booking an exclusive venue! Everything is yours for the day! It’s important to check with your venue what they class as exclusive as some venues may only host one wedding, but also host another event on the same day. At West Tower, we are completely exclusive. No risk of bumping into strangers at the bar, or another bride in the toilets! There won’t be a single person on site that isn’t here for you.

2.Everything is under one roof!

A major benefit to booking somewhere exclusive is that generally you can have everything under one roof, from your first kiss to your first dance! At West Tower you can choose to marry in our elegant ballroom, or, if the British weather is on your side, you can say ‘I do’ outdoors in our garden pagoda. Either way, there’s no need to factor in any transport, which not only saves you hundreds, but gives you more quality time with guests, and of course, each other.

3.It’s your Home from Home

From the moment you arrive to your checkout, our home is your home. You can decorate and personalise things to your hearts content! With nobody else on site to consider, your décor doesn’t have to be restricted to one room. From floral archways to welcome guests to family photographs around the fireplace… Take a look at our gallery to see how couples have decorated our house in the past! Not only will an exclusive venue make feel like you have your own romantic hideaway, but there is no end to the personalisation.

4.Get ready on site

Most venues that host weddings will be able to offer the bride and/or groom somewhere to get ready. But you don’t want to pile your bridal party into one hotel bedroom along with your hair and make-up team! The beauty of an exclusive venue is that this space is often purpose built, just like our Cristal Suite. Our stunning dressing room provides a huge, luxurious space for all your morning preparations! And with a lounge area and fully equipped kitchen, you won’t want to get ready anywhere else! Being able to get ready on site takes any stress away from getting to the ceremony; you’re already here!

5.Don’t worry about the little ones!

Our whole 10 acres are yours, so there is plenty of room for the children in your party to tire themselves out! And with nobody else on site but you, there’s a greater feeling of security. With so much outdoor space, there are tonnes of options available to entertain too, from a bouncy castle to games on the lawn! We’re often asked, ‘what time do children have to leave?’, which is something you might have to think about elsewhere. At West Tower, we don’t have any restrictions on children… quite the opposite! They’re welcome to stay and dance the night away! We have our own children’s menu and tempting extras too; perfect for little hands and bellies!

6.Private Accommodation

Most couples agree that having accommodation available on site is a huge bonus when choosing a venue! As an exclusive venue, our bedrooms aren’t sold to the public, ever! They are all available wholly to you and your party. We boast 27 guest rooms at West Tower, sleeping up to 65 of your family and friends! And on top of that, we allow our couples to allocate each bedroom, meaning you can choose exactly who stays where! Our monthly open evenings are the perfect opportunity to come along and enjoy a glass of fizz whilst allocating your bedrooms!

Easily one of the best reasons for choosing a dedicated wedding venue! You don’t have to share our team with another couple or event; you have our undivided attention from the start. Each couple at West Tower has their own personal coordinator from booking to the big day itself, meaning our team know you personally, and you know them. From your Events Manager to the bar staff and beyond, you’re the centre of our attention from the minute you arrive.

8.Exclusive Grounds

Exclusive venues often come with huge outdoor spaces. A manor in the countryside will boast gardens that a city centre hotel simply cannot. Our 10 acres offer a stunning woodland, idyllic meadow and picturesque gardens around our private house presenting endless photo opportunities. Our exclusivity extends to the whole site, meaning the gardens are yours too! No golfers to worry about! Have a look through our gallery to see the beautiful lawns and outdoor space at West Tower, with stunning views of Lancashire.
