Launcells Barton Renovations

What a night to celebrate our Newly Opened Wedding Venue in Cornwall!

A few weeks ago we had a big end of season party for everyone that has been a part of our first year! There are so many people that have worked their socks off to make our first year happen and who went above and beyond to make it possible!

We had builders, plumbers, electricians, work men- and women, who stayed late into the night and sometimes early morning, giving up their weekends – even bringing their children in to work with them in some cases, just so we could be ready for our first weddings! There were many nights where I would be running around taking food orders from everyone as we were all still working late, or times where I would be stood at the aga with a line of work men waiting for bacon sandwiches as they had come in at the weekend and needed to be well fed!

There was such a great atmosphere on site throughout the whole first phase of our build, with everyone laughing and joking and music blaring out all over the place. My personal favourite was hearing all the builders singing along to material girl!

It wasn’t just the work force that made our first year happen though, but also wedding industry professionals who gave us so much help and advice along the way and supported us on our first few weddings! Always at the end of a phone too giving us a pep talk when we needed it the most!

So, to thank everyone and show how much we appreciate everything everyone did, we had a “Big Thank You Party” to end our very first wedding season!

Below is a picture taken at our party of all our builders, plumbers, electricians, maintenance guys and farm workers who worked on the renovation works! It took a lot of people to make it look the way it does today!

Mark Devosnhire from the amazing woodfired kitchen provided the catering for the evening. He put together a spectacular selection of rustic woodfired pizzas, along with shoulders of lamb, handmade cumin pitta breads and spiced potatoes! All I could hear all evening were people saying how much they enjoyed the food! It was wonderful having smells of the wood fire and delicious food wafting around the courtyard! – a great idea for future brides and grooms!

The evening’s music was kicked off by local musical maestro Bradley Cook, who performed a beautiful acoustic set in the Mill Barn, I think it’s safe to say that Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” went down very well!

The night ended with Inspired Party getting all the builders up on the dance floor and busting some moves to a few classic 90’s hip hop tunes… I think “Cotton Eye Joe” may even have got an outing too if I remember correctly…well we are in Cornwall after all!!

We have now closed for weddings over the autumn and winter months as we build our brand new events barn ready to re-open next April. We are still open for show around appointments and have a few dates still available in 2017, so get in touch!

Look out for all the updates and build news on our Facebook page and blog!

Works have started on the Mill Barn… the ideal wedding venue in Cornwall

The scaffolding is up and we are away!

The Mill Barn is the first of the barns to have works started on it. If you had seen the Mill Barn before the builders started the much needed repairs, then you would have noticed that, yes, you can see the sky while standing in the barn! Although the barn is going to have a rustic feel about it, that is just a little bit too rustic. We don’t want to change the feel of the barn, because we love it, but we do want to make sure it’s water tight!

Our first weddings in August will have their wedding breakfast in the Mill Barn, as we are able to seat 120 guests on trestle tables.  We are also opening up the cob barn, with a pop up bar and hay bales for seating!
One of our weddings in the summer will be taking their wedding out into the courtyard, as they have a mobile wood fired pizzeria serving their guests in the evening. What a fantastic idea!

Welcome to Launcells Barton Wedding Venue Cornwall

Hello and thank you for taking the time out to read our new blog! 

We are in full swing with our renovations now as we get ready for our first open weekend at the end of January! When we say renovation works, we don’t just mean a lick of paint! The whole place is being brought back to its forma glory, with the added luxury of… ahhhhh central heating! And when you are trying to heat a house the size and age of Launcells Barton its no easy feat! Don’t worry though, we will still have open fires and wood burners for those crisp winter evenings!

As you can see from the below photo we didn’t have to dig very deep to uncover a few surprises when we started works! Mind you, if i was in my 80’s like Matt’s grandparents were when they decided to redecorate, i might have left the furniture where it was too!

We have also started the big task of the main entrance and staircase! Our poor decorator is having to scrape every inch of the walls as the hallway was left with paint peeling off all over the place, when a previous painter had not taken into account the specialist paint needed for the lime rendered walls.
