A question we’re often asked is about corkage and whether wedding parties are able to bring their own drinks; the answer is that our experience is here to help make your day run smoothly, to ensure there are fewer worries and more time to spend sharing the special day with your loved ones.
For that reason, we don’t offer corkage and here are the reasons we think this is the best way for your happy day…
No hidden costs
If you’re wanting to bring your own drinks to a wedding venue, you’ll need to be clear with them about all of the expenses associated with this. Waste disposal, the rental of fridges, or even having to hire bar staff can quickly add up to a larger bill than the bar tab itself, with some caterers also adding a corkage charge.
At Launcells Barton we don’t believe in hidden costs; we want you to know what you’re getting and feel safe that you’ll not be hit with additional charges as your plans progress.
We will run through what drinks you want during the course of your day and, if for example, you want a particular wine that is not on our extensive wine list, we’ll take care of it for you. And, when it comes to your day, we run a fully-stocked, fully-staffed bar, to make sure everyone’s glass is charged and they have a great time.
No minimum spend
Considered asking an external company to provide a bar at your wedding? They’ll usually want a minimum spend, which if your guests don’t turn out to be quite as thirsty as you’d anticipated, could mean you’re left footing an additional bill once the wedding is over.
Our bar has no minimum spend; your guests are here to drink as much as they want to, so whether it’s champagne, prosecco or a pint of the finest local ale, you’ll not be left with a sore head from a big bill the next day.
No extra work, and no running out!
The idea of a little weekend away in France to stock up on wine for your big day can seem something of a dream plan, but we’ve seen many bride and grooms in a panic as they’ve ended up not having time to make the trip that was going to be the source of all of the alcohol.
When you have your wedding at Launcells Barton this is all taken care of. You won’t have to worry about getting your stock to the venue after multiple trips in friend’s cars and the best man won’t have to make a dash to the shops half way through the celebrations because you have run out of something!
We have the best of the best!
We’re proud of where we live, so when you book our wedding venue it’s only natural that you enjoy some of the finest local produce and suppliers whilst nestled away in our own piece of Cornish countryside.
We only provide the very best Cornish ales, lagers and ciders. Looking for a stronger tipple? All of our spirits are handcrafted and premium, so your guests will be getting the very best. We have three signature cocktails which we know work really well for a wedding. We have designed them so we can make 100 for your welcome drinks and guests won’t be waiting around while we make them all! The ‘Launcells Long Acre’ I designed myself and is so refreshing with elderflower and apple. We also have our own take on a Gin Fizz and our Bellini with a peach kick!
Attractive packages and customization
We know every wedding is different, so we’ve crafted our packages over time to be as flexible as possible. Whether it’s Pimm’s and Fizz for a hot summer day or a gentleman’s whiskey bar, we’ll be able to make sure it’s as memorable for your guests as it is for you and your partner.
We will take care of everything
Whilst you’re enjoying one of the best days of your life, surrounded by your nearest and dearest, we will be working behind the scenes to make sure everything goes smoothly. You will be blissfully unaware of the many duties being kept on top of during the day. The last thing you want to worry about is who is going to be serving the drinks, if you run the bar yourself, or cutting all those lemons and limes, restocking the fridges and washing hundreds of glasses. And what’s more, none of your guests will have to help either, everyone can relax and enjoy being waited on hand and foot.
And making it all work?
Want to put an amount behind the bar for your guests? No problem! Like the idea of a cash bar? No worries. Want a wedding day without hassle or stress? We’ve got you covered. And thanks to our premises license, you can dance the night away and indulge in those midnight munchies with a glass of fizz in your hand!
