'Exchange wedding vows in perfect surroundings'

A Stunning Waterside Venue

Waterside Staffordshire wedding venue

Whether you’re looking for a wedding venue where you can take your vows and celebrate afterwards – or for a wedding reception venue having tied the knot elsewhere – The Boat House at Aston Marina offers a truly unique setting.

Set in the heart of landlocked Staffordshire, it offers a rare opportunity for couples to enjoy a waterside wedding; with a licence to host civil ceremonies inside the Boat House and also in a dedicated outdoor wedding venue area overlooking the neighbouring canal. Meanwhile, its open-plan layout and light-flooded, modern architecture is very different to other Staffordshire wedding venues. It gives couples the perfect blank canvas to create their perfect theme; be it Hollywood glamour, vintage chic or something a little more quirky – our venue dressing services, can help you achieve exactly what you’re looking for.

Tailored wedding packages

Because every couple who celebrate with us is unique, we believe in working with them to create the perfect package for their big day and a member of our dedicated events team will be with you every step of the way to ensure your wedding reception is everything dreamed of – and more.

If you wish to have a civil wedding ceremony at the Boat House itself, you can opt for either an indoor or outdoor location – either way you and your guests will enjoy the views over the marina and rolling countryside courtesy of the Boat House’s huge patio doors which grace two sides of the building.

This feature will also serve to bring the ‘outside in’ to your wedding celebration – in warmer months, the wedding party can spill out onto the terrace to enjoy drinks and canapés while the happy couple have their photographs taken in the beautifully landscaped grounds while the Boat House team transform the main space ready for the wedding reception.

When it comes to dining, our award-winning kitchen team has created a diverse range of catering options for you and your guests to enjoy. The style of dining can be as formal – or relaxed – as you wish; from elegant silver service wedding breakfasts to hot or cold buffets, street-style food – even BBQs on the terrace. We can even work with couples to help create unique foodie touches for their day – for example, we helped recreate Caribbean-style canapés for a bride and groom who had got married in Antigua and wanted to give their UK reception guests a taste of their overseas wedding.

When it comes to the evening party, once again the events team can help ensure you and your guests have the time of your lives. We have a strong network of trusted suppliers offering everything from live entertainment and DJ services to sweet carts and photo booths – and pretty much everything in between. Whether you want to dance the night away to an Ibiza dance party sound track, enjoy a festival-style wedding with love bands performing or have an elegant evening party with canapés and cocktails, we can help bring your vision to reality.

Exclusive use wedding venue in Staffordshire

When you book a wedding at The Boat House, it will be exclusively yours. With self-contained, landscaped grounds and a private car park you won’t be disturbed by other members of the public as you enjoy your big day. Meanwhile, a comfortable bridal room with sofa, TV and en-suite facilities provides the perfect place for the bridal party to prepare and relax before walking down the aisle – and a space for the happy couple to escape to later in the day to spend a few quiet minutes together before continuing the celebration with friends and family.

We just want to do it again! Aishah and her team made our day stress free and fantastic from start to finish, from dressing the venue and bringing us bacon butties whilst getting pampered, to sorting out first aid to a relative that had a fall. We couldn't fault the venue or staff if we tried and would recommend highly. Thank you again to the staff xx
