Drinks Option 1 – Supply your own!

With this “corkage” option you have the freedom to provide your own drinks for after the ceremony, during the wedding breakfast and for the speeches. This option lasts until dessert is served.  After dessert you are able to take full use of Highcliffe Castle’s reasonably priced bar. We will charge you a modest corkage fee depending on the number of guests you have.  This fee covers the costs of us receiving and storing your drinks, chilling them if appropriate, providing all the necessary glassware and of course providing staff to serve your guests.  After your special day we will recycle any empties, repack any un-opened bottles and store these so that you can arrange collection within three working days of your wedding.

Please note that we do not permit beer, lager, cider or spirits to be supplied as part of your corkage.

Option 2 – Purchase Drinks through Highcliffe Castle

If you don’t want the bother of providing your own drinks, you are welcome to choose what you want for your celebration drinks from our list below:

Bucks Fizz
