Wow, what a day we had at our Open Day at the end of January! Despite the fact that it rained from dawn until dusk and I don’t know why I bothered doing my hair that morning! It was a huge success!
It was fantastic to welcome so many new couples to Launcells Barton, many of whom had travelled from all over the country, just to be at our Open Day! It was also a great opportunity to catch up with couples that have already booked to have their wedding with us and hear all about how their plans are coming together.
The day also gave us a chance to introduce couples, both old and new, to some of the fantastic suppliers who we whole heartedly recommend for their day. We only recommend suppliers that we have worked with in the past.
We understand that planning a wedding can be very stressful- especially if you’re not from the area- and sitting staring at a laptop googling suppliers, can feel like a thankless task. You don’t get a trial run at your wedding, so you want the suppliers to be the very best and not be worrying about whether they will be as good as you had hoped!
Jenny, from Jenny Wren Wedding Planning was a fantastic support to us on the day and was on hand to meet and greet couples as they arrived and chat and offer advice about their plans for the big day! Couples were able to try one of our new cocktails and have a tasting of our house wine.
A big thank you to Oli McGivern, who travelled all the way from London to be at the event and captured these beautiful photos of the day!

On the 29th of January we will be holding our Exclusive Open Day, where couples are invited to take a sneak peek at how our Brand New Events Barn is coming along and meet our hand picked local suppliers- some of whom will have delicious tasters for you to try!
We will also have our rustic bar open, where couples are encouraged to taste our house wine and try our specially designed Launcells Barton Cocktails!
We are so pleased to be able to finally announce that our brand new reception barn will be opening it’s doors for the first time next April! Let us tell you a little more about our wedding venue in Cornwall.
The reception barn will be able to seat 200 guests comfortably and has a separate bar/ lounge, which can either be partitioned off or opened up. There will also be a kitchen for your caterers to use, reducing the need and cost to you for hiring in a catering tent and equipment.
We have worked really hard on the design of the New Events Barn and have designed it in such a way, that your guests can access the bar and reception lobby, without entering the main seating area, so that you keep the unveiling of your wedding breakfast a surprise, until everyone takes their seats! After all you have spent all that time making it look amazing, you don’t want people popping through to use the bathroom and seeing it!
We don’t want to lose the character of Launcells Barton in the new barn, which is why we are using where ever possible, re-claimed items from the farm. The partition for example, between the bar & the seating area will be reclaimed timber from the old barns & we even have an old maghonay organ which we are using as a drinks cabinet for the bar! The bar it’s self will even be made of all re-claimed wood too!
Although the main seating area will be very neutral, so that couples can decorate it however they wish, we will have a Launcells Barton feel in the bar/ Lounge. We will be including both the Georgian house & the barns into our new space, by combining English Country Gent with Rustic Farm, creating the perfect atmosphere to enjoy drinks and relax throughout your special day!

Wow, well what a weekend that was for us here at Launcells Barton!
We have been rushed off our feet and have only just got a chance to sit down after such a busy Open Weekend. The weekend was by appointment only, so that we could give each bride and groom the time they needed and we were fully booked throughout the 2 days!
Cornwall has so many creative and talented people and we were lucky enough to have a few of them showcasing at the weekend!
We had our very own Launcells Barton cake made by the incredible Christine at Peboryon. One of the distinctive features within the grounds of Launcells Barton is a beautiful fragrant pink rose known as the Launcells Rose. Apparently Matthew’s Grandfather had the rose looked into many years ago and it seems it’s unique to Launcells Barton. Every year it blooms and brings beautiful colour to the garden. Christine thought this was pretty special -as do we- so took this and worked it in to our very own cake!
Jenny from Jenny Wren Wedding planning was
also exhibiting at our open weekend and was an absolute star helping me get things ready the day before! She was there in all weathers moving and shifting things and even rolled up her selves and got stuck into ironing the Bridal Suite curtains, so that they looked perfect!
We were also able to show case our artist’s impressions by the Artographer and give our bride and grooms the first peak before anyone else! Here’s what the Bridal Suite will look like once all the furniture is in and the floors are buffed up!
Ambience Venue Styling and Brompton Buds also dressed our Mill Barn and it looked absoloutley beautiful, even before all the works have been finished on the barn! It was great to show couples what they could do with the Mill barn if they wanted to!
A big thank you to all of our suppliers who were able to be there at the event! We have worked with them all previously in the past, so were happy to recommend them to prospective couples!
