'wow what a venue'
We had our wedding at The Wool Tower in October and absolutely loved it as well as all our guests! People are still saying 'wow what a venue'. The staff were brilliant from day one of planning right up to the big day. The food was beautiful and the grounds are perfect for capturing photos of the bridal party. I'm dying to be a wedding guest at this venue to enjoy it from another angle 🥰😁

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Every wedding at the Wool Tower is special in it's own way, it would be impossible to pick! We have dedicated staff on hand to make sure every wedding is perfectly planned and ran smoothly. We have the luxury of two floors allowing dinner to take place upstairs in a separate area from the nighttime entertainment which gives a lovely flow to the evening as guests move back downstairs for the evening party without seeing any set up taking place.
