Welcoming a new member of the family into the world is always a joyous occasion – whether you are opting for a traditional, formal Christening reception after the church service or a non-religious naming day party, The Boat House offers a wonderful backdrop to celebrate the occasion with friends and family.

A blank canvas for Christening party decorations

With its sleek, minimalist design The Boat House offers the perfect blank canvas for you to create your perfect Christening Party theme – its light and airy interior lending itself especially well to showcasing beautiful pastel shades. As you plan your Christening or Baptism party, our event management team will be on hand from the outset to help you bring a vision to reality. The venue is also exclusively yours for the day – with its own car park and self-contained grounds, so you can relax and enjoy the fact that only your guests will be sharing the facilities as you mark your special occasion.

Space – inside and out

With ample room to accommodate 150 guests, the Boat House offers plenty of space for socialising with loved ones and for younger members of the party to play and enjoy the event too. There’s room for entertainers – be it live musicians, children’s entertainers or both to perform during your Christening party and room for children’s tables with craft activities to be set out to help keep them occupied. If the weather’s fine, then huge bi-fold doors open up on two sides of the space out onto a veranda and beautifully landscaped grounds giving guests the opportunity to play and mingle in the sunshine.

Food to suit your Christening Party mood

When it comes to party food options, our award-winning kitchen team can deliver packages to suit every style of Christening party. If you would like a formal, sit-down meal with silver service there are a delightful selection of menus to choose from – including vegetarian and gluten-free options. Classic party buffets are a specialty and can be tailored to your taste and budget, while for those looking for something a bit different, barbeques, hog roasts and street food style buffets are also on offer.

We also have contacts with some fantastic local suppliers who can provide everything from beautiful, bespoke invitations and unique Christening cakes designed to your specification, though too sweet carts, chair covers and table settings to ensure your Christening or naming party is picture-perfect. We can also recommend excellent local photographers who can capture special memories of your child’s special day throughout the event – whether you prefer formal, posed shots in the grounds or more candid images of guests enjoying the event.

We have visited a lot of boat related places and nowhere has felt as welcoming as Aston, I think we were completely sold on the place as soon as we started talking to you and looking around, felt so comfortable and really looking forward to exploring :)
