West Manor Estate

Forest, VA
Verified Venue

A Dignified and Majestic Mansion

This timeless Virginia wedding tradition has been hosting celebrations for nearly two centuries. West Manor Estate is a part of Entwined Events, Lynchburg’s premier special event and wedding venues and services.

Plan your day around immaculate indoor and outdoor spaces. Design your ceremony in the calm, breezy fields behind the pavilion or embrace the tranquil ceremony meadows backed by beautiful green hills and the slender white columns of the pavilion. The spacious lawn in front of the ceremony space is split down the center by an antiquated brick path and surrounded by flourishing gardens. The west gardens are situated between the estate house and the ceremony meadow and make for stunning first look and newlywed photography set amongst several types of ivies, emerald green cypresses and grand crepe myrtles.

West Manor’s glass atrium can be used as ceremony space, a reception hall or a dance floor, providing shelter from the elements along with lots of natural light and soft glowing nighttime ambiance. Inside, the cream colored ballroom shines with an elaborate staircase, crystal chandeliers and adjustable colored uplighting in the high ceilings. The adjacent conservatory is a simple charming space perfect for cocktail hour hors d’oeuvres, signature drinks and unique food displays.

Luxurious onsite cottages and three well-appointed estate rooms offer special lodging options. Enjoy matching robes and breakfast on your first married morning and private cottage space sleeping up to seven guests.
