Wedding Drinks – No corkage charge options

florish_dodfordmanorAs part of our award winning wedding service and flexible approach, we are always delighted with the response we receive when couples learn we are a no corkage charge wedding venue! We are very mindful that this is the first event you are hosting together as Husband and Wife (hooray!!) and that you want to ensure all your family & friends are looked after properly, but great hospitality does not have to be overpriced:


Our no corkage charge daytime wedding drinks offer is valid from your drinks reception (following your wedding ceremony) until the end of the meal when teas and coffees are served. We can take delivery of your drinks between 9am & 10am one or two days before your wedding at Dodford Manor. We check your drinks against the your Drinks Inventory, (discussed with you at your Wedding Planning meeting) to ensure everything has arrived and then store securely.

Early on your wedding morning drinks are moved to the deep chiller and we get that delicious red wine to room temperature and breathing in good time! Whether champagne, prosecco, cava, beer or soft drinks for your drinks reception, we serve out on polished salvers and correct glassware. The Catering Managers are also known for their mixing prowess and ready to rustle up Summer Pimms, Mojitos, Barbadian Rum Punch or Traditional Lemonades should they have been planned as the Wedding Reception Drinks. In the Winter and at Christmas weddings we have often spotted super cool glass Winter Pimms teapots whirring around with a lovely warming brew! We even provide all the fruit for your Pimms!

Just before your guests enter the wedding reception barn for your wedding breakfast, the catering team will be busily placing your table wine. As your wedding breakfast unfolds we ensure all your guests are perfectly looked after and served your wines accordingly. At the correct moment, as speeches draw near, we ensure toast drinks are distributed and that everyone is also fully looked after with teas and coffees. At this point the no corkage offer concludes and any unused drinks or wines that were not brought to table are stored and Dairy Bar opens for your wedding guests. Please rest assured there is ‘no hidden Bar sting’ and the fully stocked Dairy Bar is priced at normal pub prices! This normally draws many positive comments from those purchasing a pint (£3.40-3.60) or bottle of wine (£14.95) in the evening! We are here to help and happy to advise you on what works well and ‘how much wine is needed?’; this is useful wedding experience which can save you unnecessary outlay.
