About The Boat House @ Aston Marina

Aston Marina, Lichfield Road, Stone
Staffordshire, ST15 8QU

Landlocked Staffordshire isn’t a place you’d usually associate with waterside weddings. However, a purpose built venue at Aston Marina has changed all that.

Nestled within exclusive, beautifully landscaped grounds and enjoying far-reaching views over the neighbouring Trent & Mersey Canal, The Boat House at Aston Marina offers a waterside wedding venue in the heart of landlocked Staffordshire. Fully licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies with the option of an outdoor wedding, it presents the perfect backdrop to a single-venue celebration; with a host of menu options available from the marina’s award-winning kitchen, and its own licensed bar.

An en-suite Bridal day room with comfy sofa and TV offers the perfect space for the Bride to prepare, relax and freshen up during the ‘big day’; as well as a quiet spot for elderly relatives or young children to take time out of the celebrations.

Located near the charming market town of Stone, Aston Marina is within easy reach of J13 & J14 of the M6; making it easily accessible for guests travelling from around the country.

• Waterside setting • Up to 150 guests seated / 180 party guests • Fully licensed for weddings and Civil Ceremonies • En-suite Bridal day room • Extensive menu options • Exclusive landscaped grounds & car park

The best day of our lives
Venue Service

By Mark and Victoria Pearson, on 17 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Nov 2019

Aston Marina was the one and only venue we went to view, and we fell in love with it as soon as we walked in. The surroundings are stunning, and the Boathouse has beautiful views of the water and the countryside from all directions. There were no restrictions and the venue were so accepting of everything we wanted. The staff worked tirelessly all day and nothing was too much trouble. We dropped everything off the day before and they set the room up to our exact specification perfectly. A special mention has to go to Beckie Rowlinson. We met her when we went to view the venue and she was in contact with us throughout the whole process, and was an absolute delight to work with. She kept everything going all day, moved some last minute place settings with no notice, fanned out my dress before I walked down the aisle and was still there at midnight! She even helped us put everything in the car the next day! We would recommend Aston Marina to anyone, there are literally not enough words to thank them for everything they did. We had a perfect day and they were such a bit part of the best day of our lives.

Where to begin!
Venue Service

By Fiona Smith & Ben Dickenson, on 08 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Sep 2019

Where to begin! There was not a single thing i could fault about the Aston Marina! From booking to the organisation on the day everything was flawless. Not only was the venue absolutely gorgeous, the staff were amazing! Nicki and Alex helped make the day run so smoothly and made me feel so at ease the whole time. The food was so delicious and we got many compliments on how fantastic it was. During the evening the hog roast was also amazing. People tell you that your day will be perfect and the happiest of your life but mine really was and it wouldnt have been so if not for how amazing the Aston Marina was! I can't thank them enough for all they did to make our wedding perfect.

All we can say is WOW
Venue Service

By Hannah Dawson & Samuel Howard, on 08 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2019

All we can say is... WOW. An absolutely perfect venue ?? Myself and Sam got married here on 8th September 2019 & we’d just like to say a massive thank you to you all. Even if it was our own wedding, it was the most relaxed one we’ve been to! Everything just flowed from start to finish - no stress, no rushing and we certainly didn’t feel like we were just another wedding. Our day was truly personal to ourselves and what we wanted. The weather really made our day & we managed to get married outside ?? The staff are so polite and helpful & always smiling. The food was delicious and you literally can pretty much have what you want! Both Aishah & Beckie are just the most lovely girls you could ever want to plan your wedding! Nothing is ever too much and they certainly fill you with confidence. I had no idea what I was doing but they’re always in touch, checking everything is going ok, and generally just being super helpful. No stupid question is a stupid question in the words of Beckie, and it’s totally true! We will most certainly be hiring this venue again for future occasions ????????

The most amazing day
Venue Service

By Kerry Beeston & Daniel Bright, on 08 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2019

We had the most amazing day on 1/9/19 and even the sun came out to give us our dream outdoor ceremony! Special thanks to Nicki who tended to my every enquiry and reassured me each time I had a wobble! The venue looked spectacular and each and every member of staff ensured our day went smoothly. Thank you so much- Mr & Mrs Bright ??

Look no further, you have found the perfect venue!
Venue Service

By Daniel and Emma Sutton, on 05 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2019

We got married last Saturday at the Boathouse and I can only describe our day as perfection! This venue in its picturesque setting is the perfect balance of modern elegance and simplicity. The exposed brick, breathtaking lighting and floor to ceiling bi-folding doors are the perfect bones around which to decorate according to your theme. Not only is the venue stunning, with wonderful photo opportunities, but the food is incredible! The options for canapés, the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet were amazing and there is something to suit everyone’s style and taste. We chose the smokehouse BBQ which was the perfect choice for the relaxed vibe of our wedding and everyone commented on how delicious the food was. The canapés and pizza buffet we had on the evening were also top notch! But what makes this venue truly special is the staff; every member of staff we met both before the wedding and on the day were, friendly, welcoming, helpful and efficient. They ensured that the lead up to our big day and the day itself ran as smoothly as possible like a well oiled machine. I can’t praise the team enough, in particular our wedding coordinator Nicki who was just a complete and utter gem. Nothing was ever too much trouble and her passion for her job is evident in every encounter. We can’t thank you and the rest of the team enough for your seamless hard work, you really are the dream team! We would recommend this venue to anyone for any special function, don’t hesitate, go and visit and be blown away like we were!

Amazing and perfect wedding
Venue Service

By Bobby & Kaylie Hastings, on 30 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2019

Had the most amazing and perfect wedding at the boathouse. Everything was so perfect literally can’t put into words how amazing Nicki and the team was to make everything shine. Absolutely everyone loved the venue and how amazing the food was even had people asking me to ask where they get the sausages and burgers from. Can’t thank you enough for bringing our dream day to life xx

I could not find a single fault
Venue Service

By Helen Reeves, on 30 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Aug 2019

My daughter Lizzie and son in law Jack were married at The Boathouse on 15/08/2019. Lizzie and I came to a wedding fayre and were so very impressed with the venue, however, the day itself was much more than just the venue. Nicky looked after every one and every thing, she worked tirelessly and was smiling all day, absolutely nothing was too much trouble. The seamless transition through ceremony to the meal and then to the evening reception, the food, the bar staff, the ambience were absolutely amazing. I could not find a single fault. Thank you so much for enabling what can only be described as The Perfect Day ?

The most amazing, perfect day
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Rowlands, on 30 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 11 Aug 2019

We got married on Sunday 11th August 2019. It was absolutely the most amazing, perfect day that we could have hoped for. The Boat House was a stunning venue and was complimented by all of our guests. From the very first time we visited the venue on an open day, we knew it was where we wanted our special day. The staff were very professional, friendly and paid attention to all the finer details. An extra special thank you to Beckie, our wedding co-ordinator. Nothing was too much trouble, all of my many many questions were answered and it was so lovely to have a familiar face to remind me to breathe before I walked down the aisle!! Thank you for making our day everything that we could have hoped for and more ?? From, The new Mr & Mrs Rowlands

Absolutely perfect day!
Venue Service

By Holly Reynolds & Daniel Jones, on 30 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2019

We got married at the Boathouse on 2nd August this year and (altho it may sound cliche, it’s true!) it was an absolutely perfect day ?? From the first time we saw the Boathouse we knew it was where we wanted to have our wedding - all our guests commented on how uniquely beautiful the whole venue was. They also commented on how amazing the food was! As big lovers of food (and me being a vegan) it was so important to us to have a great meal as part of our day - Aston Marina definitely did not disappoint! The team at the Boathouse were just incredible. We never had to worry for a second, we could just sit back and enjoy our day knowing it was in safe hands. The transitions between ceremony and meal to evening were just so smooth, you didn’t even notice they were happening! The staff always anticipated what we wanted before we even asked - they were great. A special thank you must go to Beckie, who answered all my thousands of emails on the lead up to the big day. Nothing was too much trouble for her, she really made the whole process as stress free as possible and we can’t thank her enough for that ?? Thank you once again for making our day so perfect! Mr & Mrs Jones ??

A huge thank you!
Venue Service

By Gail & Gary Nicholson, on 30 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2019

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all the support & guidance you gave to Laura & Adam in planning their wedding. You are a true professional. Please thank your team to for a wonderful event where Gary & I felt like we could just relax and enjoy everything because of our confidence in all of you. Please thank your chefs for an amazing meal which was of such high quality. And one last thank you for making sure Laura & Adam had their dream wedding - despite the weather which you were right did not affect how wonderful the day way.

I wish I could do it all over again!
Venue Service

By Lauren Parsons & Luke Morris, on 30 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Jul 2019
