Phenomenal Venue and kind, supportive, and extremely helpful team!

Aston Marina is the perfect venue for a wedding. Plenty of space, beautiful views, and a wonderful atmosphere. Beckie, Lauren, and the team were so supportive and helpful, and nothing was too much to ask no matter how much of a pain we were being and how much we were changing last minute. The team goes above and beyond to ensure that every moment of your day is as special and as low stress as possible, and we would recommend their incredible quality service to anyone, along with the perfect picturesque venue. The food is also truly incredible, every single one of our guests commented on how fantastic it was. The packages on offer at the venue are very reasonably priced, especially considering the high standard of every single thing they do. Thank you so much Beckie and team, we truly had the best day thanks to all of you!

The perfect day

From start to finish you were there to help with anything and everything. Saving the day with a major bouquet issue and moving the schedule round to accommodate the speeches early to calm the guys nerves.

The whole experience was incredible and made so easy with your experience and professionalism, we didn’t have to worry about a thing.

Thank you so much!

The BEST wedding venue

Abby, Beckie & the rest of the team at The Boathouse are all amazing!

From first viewing the venue right through to our wedding day (and even after) we have felt so supported. We had regular communication with Abby and meetings to sort out the finer details, with Abby even helping suggest ideas/suppliers - which was a big help when you've never planned a wedding before!

We had a church ceremony before heading over to The Boathouse, where everything was set up perfectly and even better than I had imagined. The staff were ready with the drinks reception and canapes for our guests. The whole day was perfect, we were lucky with the weather so managed to have some time outside, but even the space inside was more than enough especially when all our evening guests arrived.

The packages offered are extremely reasonable and we would definitely recommend The Boathouse to anyone looking for the perfect wedding venue!

Thank you to the whole team for making our day incredible and run so smoothly!

Incredible Venue!

Since our first viewing of the venue, Beckie and the team at the Boathouse were incredible. They helped us every step of the way and the day ran so perfectly.

The venue is beautiful and has everything you could want; an indoor light and airy space, an outdoor decking area perfect for drinks, and beautiful views overlooking the water. Just gorgeous.

All I can say is if you want a stress-free, beautiful wedding (all for a decent price!) then book The Boathouse. You will not regret it.

Amazing from start to finish!

Rebecca and the team were absolutely amazing from start to finish! Despite the rainy weather they made sure it was perfect and nothing was too much trouble. We had such great feedback from our guests regarding the day and the food was absolutely amazing. The venue is absolutely beautiful and feel very fortunate we were able to get married at Aston Marina. Nothing was ever too much trouble despite the million questions I kept asking a long the way. Thank you to all the team for making it the most incredible day 🤍

Wonderful in every way!

We got married in June & had the best experience ever! The staff at the boat house were all so lovely, nothing was too much trouble & everyone was happy to help. The whole planning process was smooth running & stress free. The actual venue is beautiful & has such a lovely relaxed feel. So many people have told us it’s the best wedding they’ve been to! Having our dog there also made the day even more special. Would highly recommend!

The most wonderful day

We got married at the Boat House on June 16th and there are not enough words to describe how perfect the day was.
From the start Beckie was so helpful making sure everything was explained to us and ran smoothly. Then on the day all the staff were super friendly and helpful. All our guested praised them for such a well run day.
As for the venue itself, it's beautiful. There are so many lovely places to take photos and plenty of room for lots of guests.
My bridesmaids and I had a lovely room to get ready in.

Paige - you are such a beautiful person inside and out 🥰 you made our day so special, calm and stress free.

A Perfect Day

Our Wedding was heavily impacted by Covid-19, having first been planned to take place in April 2020, and after 4 attempts finally happened in September 2021. The team at Aston Marina were brilliant throughout the pandemic and their flexibility meant that all of the re-arrangements were straight forward and no additional charges too!

All of the staff were very respectful and made us feel like our wedding was the only wedding in the world. No detail was too small for them and they were incredibly patient when we wanted to run through arrangements for the 76th time.

Becky and the team were always on hand when they were needed, just a phone call or an email away. On the day before the wedding, they ran through everything with us to ensure every eventuality was covered even down to the colour of the LED downlights.

We pretty much had nothing to do in the days before hand, the team were really well organised and took every stress and strain away from us.

The venue is beautiful and having everything in one place is amazing. There is a large deck area for guests to relax when the weather is nice. It is a very peaceful and self contained location for the wedding with everything you could wish for including a large car park, well stocked bar and plenty of room for the disco.

There is only one word for our wedding day and that is perfect. The staff at Aston Marina went above and beyond to ensure that it would be nothing less than perfect. I cannot recommend enough for anyone to get married here. We have been to another wedding at this venue and it was a perfect day too. If you are wondering whether to have your wedding here, stop wondering and start booking – you will not regret it.

We cannot thank the staff at Aston Marina enough for everything they did to host our wedding. It was a long time in the planning but it was really worth it once it got to take place.

Perfection

Our original date was 18th June 2020. Of course this was then postponed and rearranged a few times before we finally got our wedding day on 25th Aug 2021.

I'm everyone will agree, rearranging a wedding, with all the uncertainties that came with it was heart-breaking and completely demotivating. Aston Marina did everything in their power to make it as stress free as possible. I think it is so important to acknowledge how well Aston Marina handled this, many venues can make a perfect wedding day, but a truly exceptional one to still be able to make a perfect wedding day when it all goes wrong in the lead up.

Becky (who we spoke with the most in the lead up to our wedding and on the day) was absolutely fantastic. Everything felt completely taken care of. If there was one thing I never had to stress about during wedding planning, Aston was definitely one of them. Emails are responded to quickly, if you want to just pop in and see the venue for ideas and inspiration, they do their best to accommodate. They were also able to adapt quickly for example, we had 2 people drop out due to positive tests, but their daughter and grandson who originally couldn't make it could now come in their place, and we were able to swap their meals without any fuss at all.

From start to finish, everything went so flawlessly. The staff were super polite and professional.

When the wedding gets brought up, something that always gets mentioned is the GRAVY. We had the Bourguignon, and everyone absolutely drooled over the food. Both the hubby and I are massive foodies, we are ever so happy that people take that memory away with them! Aston were amazing with a few people who had dietary restrictions. One gent who was Coeliac, and was ever so grateful that the venue were able to accommodate hassle free.

The House DJ (Andy) was on top form all night. He got in touch with us a little before to get an idea of what music we like and for any songs which were a must have, like our friendship group songs etc.

Thank you so much to everyone involved for the most magical day.

All I can say is….WOW!

I genuinely cannot recommend The Boat House enough. We FINALLY got married here on August 5th after a very difficult journey. We were due to get married on March 27th 2020, since that date we moved our wedding a ridiculous 5 times! Throughout the whole process Helen and Beckie have been amazing, constantly supporting us at every single step of the way. Nothing was ever too much trouble for either of them. On the lead up to the wedding and on the day Helen was nothing short of absolutely awesome! She was calm, attentive, supportive and made our day better than we could have dreamed of!

In terms of the venue itself, just WOW! The grounds are stunning and all of our guests were blown away with how beautiful it is!

Once again, a huge thank you to all the staff at The Boat House for making our wedding day the most amazing day ever! X

Amazing day

The venue was incredible, could not fault them. They were in constant contact with us during the pandemic as we were one of the unlucky couples to have our wedding postponed, and helped us with all of our needs. We finally said I do on the 15th July 21, and we had such a stress free day. We had so many compliments with the venue, and the food was amazing. It is not that badly priced either with what you get. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone.

An Unforgettable Day

This was the first and only wedding venue Jamie and I saw. I remember walking in and it taking my breath away, we looked at each other and just knew this is was the place we were going to get married… We booked two and a half years ago and finally said I Do on 26/06/2021, it was a truly magical day and one that I wish I could go back and do again just because it went way too quickly! With all the perils of COVID, Beckie and her team checked in on us to see how we were, if we had any questions and always kept us informed - even though it was months (even a year) before our wedding! Then when the final announcement on 14/06/2021 did affect us they were incredibly helpful and supportive in helping us achieve the day we’d been planning for. On the day, they looked after me, my mum, bridesmaids and wonderful hair and makeup ladies with breakfast and a constant flow of water and hot drinks - this seamless care just ensured we could all relax and really enjoy ourselves. I honestly can’t thank them or recommend them enough, if you choose to get married here just know you will undoubtedly have the best day of your life!
