Wow, I don’t even know when to begin! What an amazing venue. Abby was absolutely amazing from the day we fell in love with and booked the venue. Our wedding day was above and beyond what we could have ever expected and this was down to the amazing staff and their incredible support not just on the day, but even in the buildup! They did everything that we could have asked for and more. The food, the venue, the atmosphere- everything was absolutely perfect. Nothing was too much trouble and they made sure that our day was nothing less than perfect, they really all went above and beyond for us! Don’t think we could ever thank you enough for making our day better than we could have ever imagined. The food was incredible, every one of our guests commented about how gorgeous our day was but the main conversation was the food! We would recommend the Boat House to anyone - if we could do the whole day again, we’d be back tomorrow. Thank you all so much. Mr & Mrs Pickthorne xx

The most perfect wedding!
Where do I start with the boathouse?! We have taken so long to review purely because we simply can’t put it into words how unbelievably perfect our day was and don’t even know where to start with a review!! We got married on the 19th May, one of the best days in May for weather so we cannot complain one bit! 😜 We cannot thank the staff enough for their support for the year and half build up to the wedding, nothing was too much of an ask and nothing was a silly question or suggestion. You know when you pay for something and basically once you’ve paid, that’s it with the good service? Not at the boathouse that’s for sure!!! They go above and over with EVERYTHING they do and on the day, they were always one step ahead of us with making sure everything just ran so perfectly as it did! Everything felt so organised leading up to it and we didn’t have to worry about a thing! We had Beckie doing most of our organising and she is just so perfect at her job, and the most kind, wonderful person we have ever met! Beckie and Alex were on hand the morning/day of the wedding ensuring everything was as perfect as we’d ever dreamt it to be - and helped keep me calm 🤣 All the staff there are amazing and especially on the day when Ash was on hand to help with literally anything I needed, from grabbing a half eaten icecream off me, to pinning up my dress despite the difficulties of it 🤣 Her and Lauren was always making sure everything felt relaxed and perfect and we couldn’t have asked for anymore! Even stayed with us until we got into the taxi safely and that meant so much to us! We could go on for days talking about the staff and how unreal our day was. Everyone said how AMAZING the food was, even the photographer who’s tried loads of venue food!! And we even had people comment and ask where we found such incredible staff, so nothing went unnoticed. I think it’s safe to say we would recommend the boathouse a thousand times over. Thank you so much everyone. Love Mr and Mrs Goodall 🤍🤍

The perfect day
We recently got married at Aston Marina and from the second we enquired the service was incredible. We dealt with Beckie for all of our booking and organising and she was incredible. Nothing was too much effort and she even helped us with smaller details we maybe weren’t sure on. She took in every little detail we wanted and she was nothing but accommodating if we changed our minds. When setting up and on the day we dealt with Paige who was equally as wonderful. Once again nothing was too much detail and she continued to check in with us through out the day. The organising of our wedding day and the day itself was perfect from start to finish and a very large part of that was due to the whole team at the Boat House. I can’t thank them enough for everything they did for us.

Absolutely phenomenal
Cannot thank The Boat House at Aston Marina Wedding & Events Venue enough for making our perfect day happen! The day was everything and more I could have ever wished for. Nothing was ever too much trouble and cannot fault the staff and service one little bit. Rebecca and Paige were fantastic from the minute we booked until the day after the wedding when they helped make sure our belongings were safe. Communication and the help they offered was fantastic throughout. Both ladies were great in the morning before the ceremony in helping with the flow of everything all the way through until the end. Could not recommend this venue and the staff enough. Food was exceptional as well as the service throughout. Other suppliers such as Vintage avenue Dressers and Bib and Tucker were also fantastic and made our day. Nothing was ever too much trouble for either suppliers, Vintage helped create the look we’d always imagined for our wedding and smashed it out the park! We also had numerous comments made regarding Dan and Molly from Bib and Tucker as to how comfortable they made people feel and made it so relaxing for all, giving us a small preview just days after the wedding. Cannot thank The Boat House at Aston Marina Wedding & Events Venue enough for making our perfect day happen! The day was everything and more I could have ever wished for. Nothing was ever too much trouble and cannot fault the staff and service one little bit. Thank you to all for making our dream wedding come true👰🏻‍♀️🤵🏼‍♂️🥂
