SUMMER

Summer Style At West Tower

As the wedding season arrives, West Tower is an idyllic setting for your summer celebration. Boasting acres of outside space, picturesque gardens, breathtaking views and light, airy indoor spaces, it is the perfect choice for couples looking to make the most of the sunshine.

Licensed for civil ceremonies throughout the summer months, our wedding pagoda gives you the opportunity to get married outside. This picture-perfect wooden pagoda was designed with weddings in mind – its open sides letting the light in while a domed roof keeps you shaded from the sun. A pretty pathway acts as your aisle, weaving its way across the manicured lawn and between your seated guests, as a harpist or string quartet accompany you.

Welcome drinks and canapés can be served on the lawn, with ample seating on our Cellar Bar terrace, while guests enjoy garden games or mingle in the shade under the trees, and your photographer takes advantage of the beautiful setting.

Overlooking the gardens, the Ballroom at West Tower is a magnificent space for your summer wedding breakfast. Floor to ceiling windows offer the very best views over the cornfields beyond, while air conditioning keeps you cool and comfortable as you dine and celebrate. Throughout your day, you can enjoy the elegance of the abundant indoor space at West Tower, wandering out on to the lawn should you wish to relax in the sunshine.

Our talented chefs use seasonal produce to create tantalizing summer menus, from smoked salmon blinis and grilled fillet of sea bass to strawberries and clotted cream with pink pavlova. You might even like to serve frozen strawberry daiquiris as a fun treat from the bar!

As the sun goes down, there’s no need to come inside. Why not enjoy a hog roast or barbecue on the Leather Lounge courtyard? Outdoor lighting at West Tower means you can enjoy balmy evenings, relaxing on the terrace as evening entertainment takes place in the Ballroom. And, at the end of the evening, the luxurious bedrooms at West Tower will accommodate up to 45 people so you really can enjoy every moment of your idyllic summer wedding.
