Combining a waterside setting with a location that feels rural yet is only a few miles from J14 of the M6, sleek modern design, and options for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies, The Boat House at Aston Marina is a perfect backdrop for Civil Marriage Ceremony celebrations.

Located in the heart of the Midlands, Staffordshire is a great choice for couples who are inviting friends from far and wide to join them to celebrate their special day, and choosing a single location wedding venue means that everyone can truly relax and enjoy themselves without having to travel between the ceremony and reception venues.



A civil ceremony celebration that is uniquely yours…

Whatever style of civil marriage ceremony you opt for, the team at Aston Marina will tailor a wedding package to exceed your expectations. From the moment you arrive for a viewing, we will work with you to see how The Boat House could provide the perfect backdrop for your dream civil ceremony wedding.

The venue is absolutely beautiful and staff were really friendly and helpful. “

” 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 “
