no daytime corkage

no corkage or service charge during your wedding day

We do not believe in all-inclusive wedding packages and want to offer a unique and flexible wedding service.  Dodford Manor is a no corkage wedding venue and we offer three wedding day drink options, beginning from your Drinks Reception until the end of your Wedding Breakfast.

1. Supply your own drinks.

2. Order drinks from the Dodford Manor Cellar on a sale or return basis

3. Choose a drinks package for your guests at Dodford Manor

After your wedding feast we open the Dairy Barn Bar with it’s wide range of local pub priced drinks!

It’s our way of helping you to personalise your day as much as possible and is easy as 1,2,3.


Dodford Manor is delighted to be a no daytime corkage wedding venue.

To supply your own drinks for your guests and make your day even more personal all you have to arrange is delivery of your choice of drinks to us a couple days before your wedding day. We will double check quantities, cold store as required, then cool/heat/mix and serve out to your guests throughout the day until the end of the wedding breakfast in the Oak Barn.  We even provide the mixing fruit or vegetable as required, at no charge!

Once toast drinks are poured or when teas and coffees are served the ‘no corkage charge’ offer closes. At this time any drinks not brought forward during the drinks reception or wedding breakfast are stored safely for pick up by a member of your wedding party before 10am the next day.

Evening drinks can be purchased from the Dairy Bar at local pub prices.


If you wish to leave the provision of daytime drinks for your big day to us, we are happy to offer you wholesale-priced drinks from The Dodford Manor Cellar on a sale or return basis. Wonderful wines start from £7.95 per bottle and you won’t have to rush about trying, choosing, organising, storing, moving, repacking and delivering the wines to us – we take care of everything.

Simply choose the wines and other drinks you would like on your wedding day at Dodford Manor and let us know.  You can try the full range of Cellar wines at one of our Taster Days or alternatively order a Dodford Manor Cellar Wine Tasting Pack to sample at home. You could even make it a wine-tasting party at home with friends and family.


Our wonderful Dodford Manor drinks packages give you plenty to choose from, with great combinations and guidance on recommended quantities.

The drinks packages are fixed in terms of drinks, types and scales; but all include the recommended quantities for guests to enjoy a drink on the day, featuring three Drinks Reception drinks, half a bottle of wine during the Wedding Breakfast and one toast drink for your speeches.

We are always on hand to advise as necessary and can help with calculating quantities and what works well, saving you any potentially unnecessary costs.

the Diary Bar

For the evening festivities, the Dairy Barn Bar operates a full pay bar with card facilities provided by Jenkinsons and typically opens at the end of your wedding breakfast when teas and coffees are served and evening guests arrive.
