No Corkage Fee Wedding Venue in Devon
A wedding’s not a wedding without a glass of fizz or two to toast the happy couple. Having a wedding where you can supply your own bubbles is a good way to keep the costs down. But we’ve noticed that too many wedding venues charge for corkage. In other words, they charge you for the privilege of opening your bottles.
Not at Ash Barton. We’re one of the few no corkage wedding venues in Devon. So once you’ve paid for your fizz, or any other booze for that matter, that’s it. Nothing more to pay. It means you won’t spend your wedding worrying about how many bottles of champs Uncle Harry is working his way through – and how much it’s going to cost you.
The benefits of a no corkage wedding
Alcoholic drinks (as well as soft drinks) are usually served at every stage of a wedding celebration: fizz with the canapes on arrival. Or maybe a Pimm’s in the summer or a mulled wine in the winter. Then there’s red and white wine during the wedding breakfast, not forgetting another glass or fizz for the toast. And then there are cocktails, beer and more wine in the evening. With some venues charging a hefty £10 - £20 corkage fee, that soon adds up. By choosing a no corkage wedding venue, you’ll know exactly how much your wedding will cost and there will be no hidden surprises.
As a no corkage wedding venue, we’ve made sure there’s plenty of room to store your drinks too. We have large catering fridges in the main kitchen, and there are more catering fridges in the kitchen area of the big party barn. So the drinks will be flowing all night and will be nice and chilled too. And the best bit? You won't be charged for corkage.
