The Chequered Skipper has been hosting wedding receptions and civil partnerships since 2008 in 'The Green Room', our function room and wedding venue. We have welcomed over 70 couples who have taken advantage of this very special location for a country wedding reception.
Set upon the village green in the picture postcard thatched village of Ashton in Northamptonshire, The Chequered Skipper is a wedding venue that offers a tranquil setting for your very special day. Whether you are planning a large all day event or intimate wedding breakfast with evening guests, we promise to make your wedding reception a unique celebration.
The main function area can seat up to 60 for a wedding breakfast with plenty of space for an evening buffet if you are planning to invite further evening guests to a maximum of 120. Should you be planning for a larger guest list you may adjoin a marquee to the wedding venue which can then accommodate up to 150 seated diners.
We are a family owned business with an experienced team who will be happy to help with the planning of the event as much or as little as you wish. Nothing is set in stone as we aim to be as accommodating as possible to suit your requirements and budget considerations. On the day we will make sure everything runs smoothly so you can enjoy the occasion without worrying about the details.
The Chequered Skipper can recommend marquee hire firms, florists, photographers, hotels and B&B's etc (see ‘Local Links’ page).
Your first step is to contact us on 01832 273494 to arrange an informal meeting so that we can understand your needs and you can inspect the wedding venue. We are a very popular venue for wedding reception bookings so don’t delay if you have specific dates in mind.
