The simplicity of a venue that’ll take care of all your food and drink needs tempts most couples. But if you’re willing to put a little bit of extra effort in, a self-catering venue can offer so much more bang for your buck when it comes to catering and bar.
Could you be bothered traipsing over to Calais in a transit though? We definitely couldn’t. Corney & Barrow’s new online wedding hub couldn’t be further from a rattling journey down the A1. Instead, you can browse the hand-picked selection of wedding wines from your couch or at work (don’t lie: we all do it!).
Features of the new service include expert food pairing suggestions to ensure you have the perfect vino to accompany your wedding breakfast. There’s also a drinks calculator so you stay within budget but avoid the bar running dry before the speeches. If you do go overboard and are left with spare bottles after the big day, don’t worry – the company offer a sale and return service where you send any unopened bottles back and you’re refunded in full.
We’ve not even told you about the best bit: you can choose from a free tasting session with a wine expert, or a mixed case to enjoy at home (the value of which is redeemable against any order made after). Decisions, decisions! On one hand, having a wine buff at your disposal would be invaluable for those of us who grab a bottle in the supermarket based on price not provenance, but the chance to work through a crate of wine in the comfort of your own home sounds like the perfect series of budget-friendly date nights.
The new free online service showcases the ultimate selection of wedding wines chosen by Corney & Barrow’s highly-skilled buying team with bottles priced from £8-£80.
