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👰🏻‍♀️🤵🏼‍♂️🥂

This is the only venue we viewed and I’m honestly so happy that this is where we got to say I do! Rebecca and the team were absolutely amazing and nothing was too much trouble for them. All the guests commented on how amazing the staff were, how lovely the food was and how stunning the venue is. Our day was perfect from start to finish! I would do it all over again tomorrow. Thank you so much to you all for a truly unforgettable day. From Mr & Mrs Pearce xXx

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.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

That is such a difficult question as every single one of our weddings is special to us, but our current favourite has to be a beautiful intimate wedding celebration we hosted on 1st November 2020. This couple were devastatingly forced to postpone their wedding at incredibly short notice back in March 2020 when the national lockdown was announced, so when their big day FINALLY arrived it was one of pure happiness and celebration as they married in one of the most emotional ceremonies we've ever had the pleasure of hosting, surrounded by their very nearest and dearest. After such a rollercoaster ride of a year it meant the world to us to finally see them tie the knot and it was a day we will never forget!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Keep calm! We know sometimes it can be easier said then done, but we've seen so many couples almost ruin it for themselves because they have got so stressed about details that in the end don't matter. Remember to stay calm and try to enjoy the planning. Everything goes by so quick...enjoy it!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

The couple had a young son whose favourite movie was Toy Story. So as a beautiful nod to him, they walked back up the aisle to the featured song 'You've Got a Friend in Me'.
