Drinks

There are two reasons for drinking, one when you are thirsty to cure it.  The other when you’re not thirsty to prevent it.  Prevention is better than cure.”

Glass Hire

We are happy to serve any drinks provided by you and don’t charge corkage. We make a nominal charge for the provision and washing of glassware for the drinks reception and meal. Alternatively you can source your own glassware and we will served your drinks free of charge.

Chilling of Drinks

One thing to bear in mind if you are planning on providing your own drinks is the chilling of everything. We can hire in a number of different options for chilling the drinks and what you arrange depends on the number of guests and how much you are planning to provide.

If you have a large number of guests a Fridge Trailer is a great idea. This is delivered prior to the wedding, it eliminates all stress that everything will be chilled in time and also means if you are buying your drinks sale or return then the boxes/bottles aren’t damaged and can be returned.

A cheaper but more fiddly option is big trugs and lots of ice. This would need to be started the day before to ensure everything is cold enough and then we can manage this on the day topping up with fresh ice.

Bar Service

There are three options when it comes to the bar service in the evening:

  1. Pay Bar – We obtain a temporary events license, fully stock the bar with wines, beers, spirits and your guests buy your drinks from us. This includes glassware, service and us clearing down the marquee/venue when the bar closes. This would still allow you to provide the drinks for the drinks reception and meal if you wish, and then as soon as the bar opens no other drinks belonging to you or your guests would be available.
  2. Free Bar – You supply the drinks throughout and we serve them. This includes the glassware, service and us clearing down the marquee/venue when the bar closes.
  3. Get an External Bar Company in.  As a lot of clients want to provide their own evening food and our insurance doesn’t cover us to be on site if someone else is providing the food.  In this instance we recommend ‘Bars 2 U’ www.bars2u.com  who we regularly work with and recommend.

Drinks Packages (per person)

If the thought of ordering the drinks, arranging the delivery, worrying about quantities, co-ordinating the chilling, hiring glassware etc  is something you would rather hand over to someone else, we can arrange all of this and put together a drinks package. This can be specifically tailored to suit how much you want to provide and the quality of the drinks you want to provide. Drinks packages include chilling and glassware.
