No Corkage Wedding Venues
Becoming an ever more important criteria for couples is the cost of corkage. While the vast majority of wedding venues do charge corkage on wine and sparkling wine there are a smattering of wonderful venues around the UK which do not charge corkage. We’re thrilled to present some of these above for your perusal. Once you have decided you can start planning your booze cruise to Calais!
About No Corkage Wedding Venues
Not only are no corkage venues usually a cheaper option but they also provide you with more flexibility and helps with personalization. Why not create your own, unique drinks menu, using your imagination to create lasting memories.
You will also find that the venues who don’t charge corkage are also less likely to have in-house caterers which gives you more flexibility with your food options and allows you to be creative here too.
We’ve picked out a few of our favourite no corkage wedding venues for you below:
Looking to get married in the South West? Then it’s a real toss up between the fairytale setting of Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire, next to the Cotswolds sporting a beautiful gun terrace which is perfect for your (no corkage) reception drinks and the magnificent Great Hall to host your banquet. We also love Huntsham Court in Devon which not only has stunning grounds but is the perfect venue if you’re looking to drag out the wedding over a long weekend. You can hire the whole venue and bring as much booze with you as you wish.
Around London and the South East, quite a few of the barn wedding venues offer no corkage packages but do take a look at Lillibrook Manor and Barns in Maidenhead which is a short drive from London and boasts beautiful gardens. Smallfield Place in Surrey is a fantastic intimate wedding venue while Nymans in West Sussex and Hylands Estatein Chelmsford are perfect for larger weddings where you wish to supply your own alcohol.
Up North, Silverholme, a gorgeous Grade II listed mansion in Cumbrida and Stunning Ashes Barns in Nottinghamshire make more fantastic no corkage wedding venues.
A special shout out too to Pentre Mawr Country House in North Wales which has 12 bedrooms with a private Jacuzzi in each one! Perfect for relaxing before and after the big day.
