Perfect all round.

So finally our wedding at Aston Marina has been and gone, and what an amazing, special and perfect day it was!
Aishah, Nikki, Rebecca and Chloe, along side the small army of staff they have were just amazing. Aishah and Nikki especially, they were there every step of the way. Supporting and helping us where we needed, ensuring any request we had was not a problem and on top of all that making us feel like we were so so special and were excited as us about our big day. On the day I’m sure they never stopped, from calming my husbands nerves, ensuring guests behaved and arranging different vendors as they attended the wedding. The day ran perfectly without anyone having to do anything, it was all done for us!
Finally I need to mention just how amazing the boat house actually is. Words cannot do it justice. It’s a truly special place we are so happy and privileged to have had our wedding here! All of our guests were impressed beyond a doubt and compliments from how tasty the food is, the service to just the whole look of the building.
Overall, Aston Marina The boat house along with all the staff there is just perfect beyond any doubt!

We got married here on March 8th 2018 and the whole experience was flawless from start to finish. Aisha was a superb wedding coordinator, friendly, funny, full of great ideas and very reassuring when I started to get a bit anxious closer to the date!
The setting is absolutely beautiful and our photos were gorgeous because of that. The boathouse is a lovely venue and the bridal room was a big asset to me as it enabled me and my bridesmaid to change at the venue.
The food was absolutely delicious and all of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed it- two of our guests were executive chefs themselves and they were very impressed.
We literally can’t think of one single thing that could have improved our day. We highly recommend Aston Marina for your wedding venue. We were very very happy. Thank you all for your hard work and professionalism. It was a perfect day we will never forget.

My husband and I got married here on 3 December 2017. We only wanted an intimate wedding 6 guests! We had found it difficult to find a venue where we could get married and then have a meal in the restaurant. You don’t want a massive venue for a meal for eight people. The staff at Aston were brilliant. We had a ceremony in The Boat House and a meal in the No. 26 restaurant. Initially we dealt with Aishah the events manager and thereafter Nicki the general manager. Both were faultless. We had a fabulous day in a beautiful place. Thank you.
Perfect place for a wedding

Had our wedding here a couple of weeks ago. Had the most amazing day. It's a beautiful place in a stunning setting. Even with the rain it didn't spoil the day there. Everyone enjoyed the food. The perfect place for a wedding!
Day to be remembered forever!

We got married here in September and was the most perfect day everything we wished for and more! Aishah showed me round when I first fell in love with the venue and then became our co-ordinator. We got married outside the setting was just beautiful! I couldn't praise them enough for giving us such an amazing day to be remembered forever!
So glad we picked The Boat House

Just wanted to say that I can't thank you enough in making sure our wedding day ran smoothly. You and your team are brilliant at what you do and we are so glad we picked the boat house.
Couldnt Fault Anything

We got married at Aston Marina early September, We had an amazing day! My bridal party and I used the bridal room to get ready in. We had breakfast cooked and served by the staff at the marina, which was gorgeous. The wedding and party afterwards went perfectly. I couldn't fault anything if I tried!!! The venue is absolutely beautiful and staff were really friendly and helpful.

I can't thank you enough and your staff for your hard work. It really was the best day of our lives. The Boat House was the perfect venue for us and all our guests loved it. Wish we could do it all over again.
Thanks again and much love

Wonderful, memorable day!!

We had a very clear idea of the kind of wedding we hoped to have - very much an English country fete, with games and a picnic for dinner. The staff were so excited to help us create this and worked with us to make a picnic meal (in big picnic baskets) which really wowed the guests. The venue was the perfect backdrop for us and made for some incredible photos! All our guests had a relaxed and fun day - especially all the kids. The food was exceptional, however I would say the portion sizes were a little on the small size (for example 1 piece of bread, 1 cracker per person).
The staff, particularly Aishah were excellent and always got back to us - even if this took a couple of days because they're so busy.
Would recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding and will be back to eat in the bistro soon.
Staff almost ruined our Wedding Day - Diabolical
By Jade & Ryan, on 11 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2017
We booked with Aishah for the 8th July for the reception to commence at 5.30pm- she put us in the diary and gave us a brochure. In April, we were sent a FACEBOOK message cancelling our booking -we had to set an alternative date as the daytime booking had wanted to extend their time! April 2017- until this point, we had heard nothing from the venue or our planner. We booked a food tasting session- we selected a BBQ style meal which was fantastic! Our food balance was due the next day to which we were told when offering to pay there and then that a member of the team would contact us to take the payment. NEVER HAPPENED. We had to drop the cash into the venue were told that we would be emailed our receipt-NEVER HAPPENED. Wedding day- At 12.30pm (our wedding commenced at 4.30pm) we had a call from Josie in Accounts. She told us that the bank statement was insufficient and if we did not pay again then they would not proceed with the venue!! We asked if they had CCTV to which she said they had checked it already and when we asked to come over and view the CCTV, she then changed her story stating that they had no CCTV for that day- which is it?! To cut a long story short- we had to pay again! This is now in dispute not only with the venue but we have had no choice but to inform the authorities. They closed earlier than discussed leaving a fire door being the only outside access. They had 2 security guards following our guests around making ours and our guests experience uncomfortable.

Thanks so much for all your help with our wedding, we had such a lovely day and are so happy with how everything went! We will remember it always! On the day everyone was so lovely and helpful and our guests commented what a lovely venue it was, but also how friendly all the staff working on the day were too.
I'm sure The Boat House is going to continue to be very busy in the future, we'd recommend you to anyone planning a wedding or event!
We can't thank you all enough! We will remember the lovely day and everyone's kindness forever!
