People make weddings great, but planning the details can really put the icing on the cake. Providing wine for a wedding, we recognise, is one of the greatest honours anyone can bestow on a trusty wine merchant!
With our relaxed and friendly approach, Ake & Humphris can be your “wine usher”, taking the stress bunny out of your wine selection process.
- Not sure what to buy? We can provide a personalised tasting for the couple and up to ten other interested parties, allowing you to find the wines that ring your bells, and we can recommend wines to pair with chosen menus.
- Not sure how much you need? As it’s not our first rodeo, we are experienced enough to recommend the right quantity for you and your guests plus a bit extra, offered with sale or return.
- Wines can be made available for collection or delivery at a time that works best for you, resulting in one less thing to worry about!
- Will it cost me more? We have a myriad of wines available to us to suit any budget. Combined with our bulk quantity discounts, and no "wedding premium charge", you can look forward to spending less than you expected!
Sometimes we may need more wine than normal. (And we don’t mean just after a bad day!) If you’re planning to host any kind of event that requires wine, we would be delighted and honoured to help. Choosing the right drinks to please, placate or thrill your guests may seem daunting, especially when it comes to how much you might need. We have the experience of helping you plan simply and effectively, taking away wine worries and allowing you to enjoy your event more! With reassuring facilities such as sale or return, free glass loan, try-before-you-buy and free local delivery our events services are there to put you in cruise control, not on the hard shoulder.
We recognise that every event is different and offer quality, affordable, bespoke solutions for any occasion. From hatches, matches and dispatches and any stage along life’s journey, through to exhibitions, shows and anything else more business related we would love to hear from you.

Bespoke wine needs
With over 100 years of experience in the wine industry and a real sense of fun, we turn our hands to a variety of things. In fact, if any conversation you would like to have contains wine (or beer, or spirits) we would love to hear from you! We are always keen to help so if you can't see what you're looking for, please get in touch.
We love a good drink, but not too much. We’re strong advocates of drinking less and enjoying more. If you also champion quality over quantity, Ake & Humphris is for you.
If you want to know more about responsible drinking, we have found the independent UK charity, Drinkaware to be particularly helpful. www.drinkaware.co.uk
