Waterside Wedding Reception Venue Staffordshire

The Boat House at Aston Marina offers the perfect setting for your dream wedding day.

Licensed to host civil ceremonies, couples can also book our exclusive-use facilities for afternoon or evening wedding receptions and parties having taken their vows elsewhere.

Lying in the heart of the country, rural Staffordshire may not be the first place you’d consider hosting your dream waterside wedding reception. However, thanks to The Boat House’s position alongside the Trent & Mersey canal, it offers a rare opportunity to do just that.

Looking for Unique Wedding Reception Ideas?

A truly unique Staffordshire wedding venue, The Boat House has been purpose-built to provide everything you need for your big day.

Its modern, minimalist design offers a blank canvas to create your desired theme. Whether you’re looking for a classic, rustic country gathering or a glittering Hollywood-inspired reception, we’ve got the perfect venue to help bring your vision to reality.

Celebrate Your Marriage in the Beautiful Staffordshire Countryside

Despite lying on the edge of the charming town of Stone, with its convenient road and rail links to the wider West Midlands and beyond, The Boat House sits nestled amongst rolling countryside. The tranquil canalside setting, meanwhile, provides a picturesque backdrop for your wedding reception.

The Boat House maximises its surrounding views with large, bi-fold doors – allowing parties to spill out on to the veranda and private gardens beyond, where many couples host drinks receptions and even BBQs for their evening guests.

Catering, Decorations, Entertainment and More

The events team at Aston Marina goes above and beyond in every area to make your wedding reception dreams come true.

From offering advice on a range of topics to sharing contacts from our ‘little black book’ of trusted suppliers and helping you set up on the big day, we’ll be by your side.

When it comes to food, at The Boat House you choose from menus created by an award-winning catering team. From formal sit-down wedding breakfasts to street-food inspired buffets, there’s something to suit every taste and budget. You can even create your own bespoke menus to match a chosen theme – Caribbean BBQs and Mediterranean-inspired selections are just a couple of examples previously curated.

In terms of decoration, The Boat House can be easily transformed into your perfect wedding space – lighting, floral displays, balloons, exquisitely created floral backdrops and much more have been used for past weddings and we see new and exciting decorative techniques all the time.

For entertainment purposes, whether you favour a full live band, tribute act, DJ-centred dance party – or something else entirely – we are used to working with performers and can help create the unique ambience you are looking for.

And when it comes to those unique finishing touches, we have numerous ideas and contacts to share. From sweet carts to children’s entertainers, magicians to photo booths and more – all can help entertain guests as celebrations unfold and make yours a wedding reception to remember.
