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

If you're looking for a wedding venue in the Staffordshire area look no further. Joe and I got married here 21-04-19 Easter Sunday. It was the best day of our lives. The sun was shining over the marina the views were breathtaking! Becky and Alex were the perfect supporters for our day, they couldn't do enough for us. The food OMG, all our friends and family are still talking about the food saying it has been the best food they have had at a wedding- HONESTLY IT WAS! What we loved that there were so many menu options to chose from- the lamb, my mouth is still watering!! You could dress the venue as much or as little as you like, you don't need to though as it speaks for itself- from the lights dangling from the ceiling, the flooring, the chairs, the big windows that let in tons of natural light, the bridal room to get ready in, and finally the amazing views. Honestly I cannot stop thinking about our wedding and how perfect it was! Becky, Alex and Helen, have been so lovely from the minute we booked our wedding right through to the actual day. We can't thank everyone from the chef's to the waiters/waitresses enough. I'm so happy we chose Aston marina it will always have a special place in our hearts! CHOOSE ASTON MARINA YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!

Such a fabulous venue
Venue Service

By Simon and Claire, on 19 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Apr 2019

We chose The Boat House as the venue for our wedding due to the high level of customer service, the beauty of the venue and the value for money for what was included in their packages. The food was absolutely outstanding and enjoyed by all of our guests who were astounded by the menu choices. The Boat House is located right next to the Marina which gives a fantastic opportunity for some gorgeous pictures. We had exclusive use of the venue and loved the bridal room that allowed me to get ready with my bridesmaids and relax before the ceremony. I could not recommend this venue any more highly and do not have a single thing we would change about The Boat House. Aishah and Alex pulled out all of the stops to ensure our day was special. Their customer service was excellent and helped us along the way with everything we needed. Thank you so much!

Nothing is too much trouble and they all really helped to calm me down during wedding planning! The food was incredible and the views are stunning. It truly is the dream wedding venue. Love Mr and Mrs Kelly xxxxx

Best Day Ever!
Venue Service

By Aimee & Darren, on 05 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Oct 2018

We got married on 26th October 2018, when we went to see the Boat House at Aston Marina it was exactly what we were looking for, it was light, spacious, the venue was beautiful and the location was just perfect. Nicki was our main wedding coordinator and she was fantastic! From the beginning to the end she was always happy to help me, even a week before the wedding when I rang up because the guest numbers didn’t add up, I was fuming with the stress of family inviting other people to our wedding, but she made everything seem like it wasn’t a problem at all and sorted it straight out. She didn’t come across like she was in it for the business she really cared like she was a friend and not another supplier I had to deal with, and the same goes for Aishah and Becky who also helped out when Nicki wasn’t available. I don’t know how they do it but in those moments of stress and panic they were there to make me calm and stress free. We had lots of comments from our guests on how amazing the food was and what a beautiful place it was. I cannot fault the staff, the venue or any part of the whole wedding experience we had with The Boat house at Aston Marina, I would highly recommend this venue without a doubt! Thank you so much for helping make our day the "Best Day Ever” you guys are all AWESOME! xx

It was amazing!

We felt so relaxed!
Venue Service

By Terri Gilford, on 15 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2018

We got married here at The Boat House on 2nd September 2018. From the moment we booked our wedding Nicky was amazing! There for us every step of the way and simply couldn’t do enough for us. You made us, especially me feel so relaxed and that everything was under control. I may have had the odd stress as brides do but a quick chat with Nicky on the phone and I soon felt relaxed again. On the morning of the wedding when I arrived at the venue I was absolutely amazed with how it looked, Nicky and Aishah did an amazing job setting everything up for us. I wasn’t sure about whether we should do the ceremony outside as although it was hot and sunny, it was also quite windy so I was stressing over my hair blowing everywhere. Nicky and Aishah soon sorted that problem for us and opened up the big main doors so we had the best of both worlds. All the lovely hot sunshine but no wind blowing my hair and veil everywhere. The whole day ran perfect and it was all thanks to Nicky, Aishah and the wonderful team at Aston Marina. Words cannot thank you all enough for giving us the most wonderful memorable day we could have wished for. All our love Mr and Mrs Gilford xxxxx

The best day of our lives
Venue Service

By Grace Quick, on 15 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2018

We got married at The Boathouse on 10th August and it truly was the most magical day. We were able to set up the day before as there was no wedding booked in which made all the difference, I actually enjoyed my last evening as a Miss relaxing knowing most of the set up was done. Aishah was a huge help on the run up to the wedding, I must have bombarded her with questions but she always took time to answer and reassure me. Aishah and her team were simply fantastic on the day, originally we hoped for an outdoor ceremony but due to rain we set up inside. Approx 30 mins before the ceremony Aishah did come in and say the sky was clear and we could move outside if we would like..... moments like that show how no job is too big for them to make your day perfect. We actually stayed inside and on reflection it was so much more intimate and special, the right decision for us! As for the The Boathouse itself..... what a venue. Simply stunning and something completely different to your average wedding venue. So many guests commented on how gorgeous it was and loved the views and the way the outside flowed inside due to the bi-fold doors. The quality of food was outstanding, our Wedding breakfast was delicious as was the Hog Roast... again many guests were singing the praises. We had the best day of our lives at The Boathouse and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone for their wedding. Wonderful staff, mouth watering food and stunning scenery! Thank you for everything!

Could not have been happier

By Carla Talbot, on 15 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

We cannot thank Nicki and her team enough for helping us plan our day! The team cannot do enough for you! Our wedding day ran so smoothly it really was perfect! And how the venue had been set up with our wedding decorations was just perfect too! It is such a beautiful venue and myself and my husband could not have been happier or have not found a better place to get married! We literally cannot thank Nicki and the rest of the staff enough! Amazing day. Amazing venue!! Thankyou soooo much! Mr & Mrs Talbot

The only problem, the day went far too quick!
Venue Service

By Hannah Hikin, on 15 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 27 Jul 2018

Aaron and I got married at The Boat House on 27th July, the weather was amazing so we were lucky enough to have the outdoor ceremony we had hoped for. It was an absolutely magical, relaxed day from start to finish and this couldn’t have been achieved without Aishah and the staff at Aston Marina. Nothing was too much trouble and the day ran seamlessly. Everyone has commented on how incredible the food is was too! The only problem was that the day went far too quickly!!! We wish we could do it all again. Thanks so much xx
