Gin Fizz and friends for a beautiful English Country Wedding in Cornwall.

Back in May we had the pleasure of seeing our very first couple to ever book their wedding with us become Man and Wife!

Wedding Venues Cornwall

We met Pauline and Paul back in November 2015, and they saw the farm before any renovations had started.  I think there may have even been Matt’s parents furniture still here too! They were completely on board with all our plans for the place and could see past all the work that needed to be done! Pauline and Paul originally wanted to get married in September last year, but were so taken by the new barn that they pushed their wedding back so it would be ready for their big day!

It was fantastic to get to know Pauline and Paul and see all their wedding plans come together!

Pauline organises outdoor adventure activities for children, meaning summer is always a pretty hectic time for her.  They decided a Spring wedding would allow them plenty of time to focus on their day.

The couple went for a beautiful English Country Garden feel by filling the Reception barn with big jars full of beautiful flowers, while Crescent Moon decorated the beams with stunning lighting and hanging lanterns! Pauline and Paul really put a lot of personal touches into their decorations, even making their seating plan out of an old desk!

The Mill Barn was understated elegance with white bunting sweeping from the beams, fairy lights twinkling, flowers hanging on chairs down the aisle and big milk churns full of flowers and branches in the corners. The chairs even had personalised tags for reserved seating. Everything looked absolutely breathtaking!

Pauline got ready on the day in the Bridal Suite with her fabulous bridal party. The bridesmaids wore gorgeous blush patterned dresses and everywhere you looked, hair and make up was being perfected by Hannah Woodgates hair design and Lizzy Couch Make up.

Pauline, with the help of her mum doing up all of those tiny buttons, looked simply stunning in a strappy lace, fit and flare dress finished beautifully with a beaded belt.

Paul, his bestman and ushers, welcomed guests as they arrived to take their seats in the Mill Barn.

It was then time for Pauline to make her way to the Mill Barn, and for the couple to say their vows in front of all their friends and family. It was such a beautiful ceremony with personal, yet funny, readings from friends.

I have to say that Pauline and Paul’s wedding was so much fun to be a part of.  You could feel the love that all their friends and family had for them.  I even helped their bridesmaids and Bridesman surprise the newlyweds with a honeymoon suite filled with confetti, decorations and even their PJ’s laid out nicely on the bed!

Such amazing words from Pauline ( a tear may have been shed reading this!)

“We had viewed a couple of venues, when we met Lara and heard about her partner Matts beautiful old family run farm that they planned to turn into a gorgeous wedding venue… and we were intrigued!
Everywhere we had viewed up to this point just hadn’t connected with us… beautiful venues… just not how we imagined our day to be… just not “us”. And so we went to visit the farm, before any work had started! Armed with our wellies, the dog and warned that it really was still just an old house, and a barn and a cow shed full of what cows do best… we had a tour, spent ages just chatting with Lara and Matt, and left knowing that we wanted to have our wedding there.
They are a wonderful partnership. Warm, welcoming, friendly, helpful and so filled with vision and motivation that we trusted them one hundred percent to create what is now a gorgeous wedding venue.
Having the venue for the weekend, and having so much room to accommodate family and treat it as our home made the whole event magical. Nothing was too much trouble, and we were kept in the loop the whole time. Lara’s recommendations and advice helped with the planning immensely.
They have created a beautiful, rustic, natural setting packed full of old Cornish charm and we absolutely loved it. I am sad that we no longer have a reason to follow the progress of this fabulous place, we wish them all the best success for the future and cannot thank them enough for making our day so special.
My only complaint is that it went too fast… Can we do it again please? 

Wedding Sunset Cornwall

These beautiful images were all captured by Nicola Muir Photography. Nicola is actually friends with the couple and has known them for years. She came all the way down from Hampshire to shoot their special day! Luckily Nicola’s parents don’t live too far away, so was even able to be picked up from work by her dad- a first time in many years!

Congratulations from everyone here at Launcells Barton! It’s been fantastic getting to know you both so well and we wish you all the happiness for the future.  Stay in touch!

Pimms, Prosseco & long summer days all add up for a Glorious Wedding in Cornwall!

Last month we hosted the wedding of Matt and Ellie and possibly the hottest wedding that we have ever had, but what an amazing wedding it was!

Wedding Venue Cornwall and Devon

Wedding Venues Cornwall

We first met Matt and Ellie at our very first open day in January 2016 and it has been fantastic to get to know such a wonderful couple and their young family throughout all our renovations and building works.  They fully trusted in us and our vision from the very start, each time we met they were able to see a bit more of their dream wedding taking shape! Never once were they put off by some of the very extensive building works we had going on (although it probably helps that Matt is a master carpenter and knows the building trade!), even when they had to walk on the safety boards over open trenches with pipes and building works going on everywhere, the happy couple, smiled and said “we know it will look amazing”

Oh and how it did! Ellie and Matt styled the venue amazingly, bringing in blush pinks, greys and copper tones, with personal touches throughout. Beautiful uplighting added by Love Weddings Cornwall. Flowers by Val trailed greenery and ivory adding flowers with subtle muted tones to bring the whole wedding to life!

The Groom spent the morning getting ready at home with his Ushers, while it was an early start for the Bride and her Bridesmaids who got ready in the bridal suite.

Ellie looked breathtaking in a elegantly simple fishtail gown detailed with a bejewelled belt and finished with a waist length veil.

I love the backdrops of the lovingly restored barns and the elegance of the main house. For a wedding photographer it is a dream venue. Ellie looked stunning too, the whole day was perfect even in the 30 degree heat!”

A few words from the happy couple themselves-  Lara & Matt – thanks again for all of your help leading up to & on our Wedding day. It was a pleasure meeting & getting to know the both of you. We instantly fell in love with Launcells Barton when we came to visit in January 2016 & have really enjoyed seeing it transform over the past year and a half. We really could not have found a more stunning venue for our Wedding! It really was just perfect and how lucky were we with the sunshine!!  We really couldn’t have been happier honestly it was all perfect and so many people have said to us it’s the best wedding they have been to as it was all just so relaxed & that’s exactly how we wanted it- Ellie & Matt x ‘

The whole day was a joy to be a part of and we loved seeing Ellie and Matt enjoying their day!! Congratulations to the both of you!

Why we only offer Exclusive Use Wedding Venue Hire…

When it comes to your big day, you want it to be just that – your day.  One of the most special in your life, and one spent with loved ones, friends and your family.

Exclusive Use Wedding Venue Cornwall

So what if you had to share those moments with people you might not know, or even see again in your life? We believe that having your big day at an exclusive venue means you’re not only free from the stresses of strangers walking in and out or hotel managers prioritising guests checking in, but also able to enjoy the day and the benefits that come with making your wedding venue the right one.

Today we’re going to take a look at just a few reasons you might want to choose an exclusive venue such as ours at Launcells Barton…

  1. Be photobomb free

We’ve all been there; the perfect moment captured by the priciest photographer money can buy, but who’s that guy reading the newspaper at the bar or the couple having a cuddle in the distance?

That moment’s not coming back, so when it comes to our exclusive venue you’ll be pleased to know that the only thing your photographer will need to tackle will hopefully be the glare of the sunshine and the greenery of the great Cornish scenery.

The rest will be you and your closest friends and family taking centre stage.

Exclusive Use Wedding Venue Cornwall

  1. Get the staff attention you deserve

Exclusive use venues, such as Launcells Barton make it all about your day. The staff are there just for your wedding, not for other visitors or guests. Whether the registrar seems in a rush to get to their next ceremony, or reception staff are having to handle potential problems with other paying guests, they’re not going to be able to give you all of their attention and care.

You, your partner, and your guests are our top priority and we’re always focussed on helping you as much as possible throughout your day.  Making it the one you’ve always dreamed of is what we strive for.

Exclusive Use Wedding Venue Cornwall

  1. Keep it all in one place

Planning the perfect day can be stressful enough, so who really wants to go from place to place on their big day? Exclusive use venues allow you to totally relax and get comfortable in one place, and your guests will be happy about it too.

This also makes styling your big day a lot easier too! Decorations can go up the day before, leaving you to enjoy the excitement of the morning of your wedding, surrounded by friends and family without the stress of having to set up.

Exclusive Use Wedding Venue

  1. Make it your own, and make it perfect

Launcells Barton, and other exclusive venues, are all about weddings. They aren’t primarily a hotel or a place of worship, or even a castle that is supported by tourism. This means that they know the industry inside out, and can give you all the advice and support you need.

They also allow couples more freedom when it comes to styling and decoration. You’ll be presented with a blank canvas to make your own, compared to a room that has already been potentially styled to suit the venue’s other area of business.

What is the difference between a venue co-ordinator & a wedding planner?

This is a question that we often get asked, so we thought
who better to answer this, than wedding planner extraordinaire Jenny, from Jenny Wren Wedding and Events.

Over to you Jenny-

Wedding Cornwall

After months, even years of planning, the wedding day is finally here!

Looking ravishing, relaxed & relishing every moment is how any couple should be on their big day, which is why we work closely with wonderful wedding venue co-ordinators like Lara Gill from Launcells Barton to ensure your day goes off without a hitch!

I have been on both sides of that spectrum, running weddings for a venue and as an independent wedding planner, so can give you some experienced insight into the difference in roles. I really enjoy working with venue coordinators, we work seamlessly together to ensure your day runs smoothly. The level of service of course varies from venue to venue, some coordinators are more involved than others. But here is how we work with wedding co-ordinator Lara at Launcells Barton.

There is so much work that goes on behind the scenes, this may give you a little insight into what we get up to..

Set Up & Room Turnarounds
Ironing the tablecloths, lighting the candles, hanging the lights, placing the name cards, table plans and favours…set up can be exhausting!
We take care of this while you enjoy your own preparations, confident that all will look just as you envisage. Couples getting married at Launcells Barton have the use of two beautiful barns and the choice of several ceremony areas, meaning no turn around of rooms are needed. This allows you to set up your ceremony and reception areas the day prior, giving you complete piece of mind that everything is looking just as you want.

Wedding Planning Cornwall

Co-ordintaiton of Suppliers
A wedding planner contacts suppliers in the lead up to the wedding and arranges logistics, when they will arrive/leave and keeps in contact prior to the day. This is unlikely for a venue co-ordinator to do, unless in reference to the setup of the venue. If there is an issue with your suppliers, it is up to you to deal with, where as a wedding planner would take care of this. On the day we will be there to see in your suppliers and assist with what they need, for example showing the cake maker where to set up, ensuring the band have sufficient power and the photographer gets fed! Launcells Barton have taken the time to put together a hand picked recommended supplier list of those they have worked with in the past and know their venue well.

Wedding Planning Cornwall

Organising Accommodation
We know that sometimes it can be difficult to organise accommodation for all your guests, especially if you don’t know the area well. Launcells Barton provides accommodation for the Bride and Groom and their close friends and family, but we can research and book accommodation for your guests that are not staying within Launcells Barton.

Guest Transportation
There is plenty of parking at Launcells Barton, but for those that want to provide transport for their guests, we can take care of the coordination for various pick up points. We can even have a staff member on the coach to tick people off as they get on board, ensuring no one is left behind.

Wedding Venue Cornwall

Ceremony
Whether it be a religious, civil or a humanist ceremony a little pre planning will make sure you both relax and enjoy every moment.

  • Ensure reserved seating on the front rows is taken care of. Have you seen the beautiful handmade benches they have for the ceremony at Launcells?
  • Meeting your registrars or celebrants, ensuring they have all they need.
  • Some people that have involvement in the ceremony (bridesmaids, ushers, fathers…) feel nervous or panicky just before the ceremony.  This is often because they are not sure where to be, where to stand or what to do at specific moments and they are worried about messing up. We often organise wedding ceremony rehearsals to put their mind at ease.
  • Manage the music, whether that’s pressing play on an ipod as you are about to walk down the aisle or cueing the musician.
  • Ensuring any people doing readings have their reading and are clear on where they will be stood.
  • Organise when the confetti will be thrown and ensuring all guests have some. Confetti tunnels work really well and look great in pictures!

Bridesmaids- Wedding Cornwall

Bridal Party Flowers
Often florists have another wedding to get to so may not have time to deliver your bouquet to you personally. We ensure they reach you in good time and all buttonholes have been circulated to the correct people. We often end up pining them on and helping tie cravats also!

Wedding Venues Cornwall

Photographs
Launcells Barton has such an array of beautiful areas for photographs. Matt and Lara know all the best spots and have even been know to give couples a tractor ride to the nearby fields for those epic countryside views! We assist the photographers with gathering any family members or friends for group photographs and always check with our couples if there are any family situations to be aware of, avoiding any awkward moments when putting people together for pictures.

Guest Care
Our aim is to ensure your guests have a wonderful time too, we take care of their needs and pay special attention to elderly guests, those with special needs and children.  Whether that’s getting Nana a cup of tea and a comfy chair, escorting Grandpa up the steps or discreetly taking a little one to the toilet during the ceremony.

Final touches- Wedding Venue Cornwall

Keep things safe
Once the wedding meal is over and the evening party is beginning, we can pack away your table décor, ensuring all is organised into boxes, making it easier for the you the next day if you have hired items to return or bits to take home. We also ensure all of your cards and presents are stored safely in your room.

Emergency Kit
We have a kit we bring with us to every wedding with over 50 items in it. From rescue remedy, blister pads and plasters to a sewing kit, spare weddings rings and drawing pins. Our kit has come to the rescue time and time again.

Wedding Venues Cornwall

Finally, no matter how perfectly planned, there are often little things that come up on the day that can not be foreseen. We deal with these in a professional and discreet manner, you will not even know they have happened.

Launcells Barton is one of our favourite venues to work at, as well as it being an absolute beautiful venue with such character and charm, owners Lara and Matt are so welcoming and a pleasure to work alongside.

7 reasons to get married in Cornwall

The wedding industry is booming in Cornwall at the moment, and we’re not surprised. More and more couples are choosing to have their special day in the county as they realise how special Cornwall is, or return to their family roots in the Duchy. Everyone has their own reasons for getting married in the South West, but here are just a few extra things to convince you that this is the place to say “I do”.

Wedding Venue Cornwall

The beautiful surroundings

Cornwall is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful places in the country. Woodland, beaches, and countryside are all easily found and can provide a stunning backdrop for your wedding. As well as the breath-taking natural surroundings, there are also an abundance of beautiful buildings and historical areas.

One of those places is Launcells Barton. Set amongst acres of countryside, with stunning coastal views, our venue captures the beauty of Cornwall in one location and is also easily accessible from the main routes into the county.

Exclusive Use Wedding Venue Cornwall

The independent suppliers

Suppliers in Cornwall are some of the most passionate you will ever meet. Working together to create beautiful weddings and events is something we take to heart, and makes sure that your wedding day will be like no other. There are no large corporations that have no personality, just independents who truly care and want to make your day as special as possible with those extra touches.

We work with some wonderful suppliers here at Launcells Barton and are always happy to recommend those that will give you a service that is second to none.

Wedding Venue Cornwall

The weather

Cornwall gets up to 1,600 hours of sunshine every year…and that’s almost 200 more than in London! You’ll also find the mildest UK weather here, with winters being less extreme than in many other areas. If you want to increase the chances of glorious sunshine on your big day, then Cornwall is the place for you.

Exclusive use Wedding Venue

The unique venues

As a county with plenty of character, you won’t be surprised to discover that Cornwall is packed with unique and impressive venues. Just a short walk from Launcells Barton is the Parish Church of St Swithin’s which dates back to the late 15th century. The romantic setting is filled with historic artefacts, adding a unique touch to your day.

Back at Launcells Barton, you’ll find the large Manor House which dates back to the 14th century, alongside a purpose built Events Barn, a newly converted 19th century Mill Barn, and beautiful grounds and countryside.

Wedding Venues Cornwall

The serenity

Cornwall isn’t all tourist hot spots; it can also provide peace and quiet for your wedding day. Launcells Barton ensures you have exclusive use of the venue, meaning you can completely relax and enjoy your day with your nearest and dearest without intrusive noise from elsewhere.  With just the sounds of the countyside, you will have a completely undisturbed day.

Exclusive Use Wedding Cornwall

The unique touches

The people of Cornwall are unique, and we know that our couples are too. That’s why we made our venue to be as flexible and unique as you need and want it to be. Whilst we provide you with everything you’ll need for your wedding day if you need it, we are a blank canvas, so you can make your day truly personal to the both of you.

Wedding Venues Cornwall

The sense of community

There is a strong sense of community in Cornwall. The growing wedding community is tight knit, and if someone can’t do something then they will know someone who can! This means that during the planning stages your suppliers will most likely know each other and be able to collaborate, making your day a lot less stressful.

What a fantastic Open Day, for our Wedding Venue in Cornwall….

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!

Barn Wedding Venue Cornwall

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.

Farm Wedding Venue Cornwall

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.

Barn Wedding Venue Cornwall

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!

Planning your perfect wedding in Cornwall from afar….

Planning a wedding can be stressful at the best of times, but when a couple lives far away good communication, support, and help, becomes more important than ever. At Launcells Barton, we do just that. Even if you live out of the county, hundreds of miles away, you can still say “I do” in Cornwall.

Outdoor wedding ceremony Cornwall

Solvable problems

Many couples dream of getting married in the South West but think that the planning would be too complicated and stressful, however the reality is quite different. Whether you’ve spent many summers of your childhood on the coast, had a romantic trip with your other half here, or are returning to your home county, it is entirely possible to organise the day of your dreams from afar.

More and more couples are now choosing to marry away from home. Many of our couples live in other areas of the country so we understand the importance of having regular contact with our brides and grooms. It’s our job to make sure that you can easily and successfully plan your big day, no matter where in the world you are.

Wedding Venue Cornwall Welcome Drinks

Regular contact and support

After your initial visit we’ll stay in touch through phone calls and emails in the lead up to your wedding. From questions about the venue itself, to guidance on where guests should stay, we’re more than happy to give you as much information as we can.

If you’re unable to travel down to us again, then don’t worry. Whilst it can be helpful to re-visit Launcells Barton, we’ll be able to help you plan and organise through frequent phone calls and emails. If you are travelling down for visits to relatives or holidays, let us know and we’d love for you to pop in and say hello.

Our couples are our priority, so we will always respond to your questions and queries as soon as we can; you’ll never be left waiting for weeks on end.

On the day co-ordination- wedding venue Cornwall

Recommended suppliers

Not all of our out-of-county couples have relatives or friends in the area, which can make selecting suppliers confusing and difficult. You don’t want to run the risk of turning up to your big day and having the wrong coloured flowers, or caterers providing poor service. This is why we have a list of recommended suppliers. We’ve worked with these carefully picked professionals many times, and we will only ever suggest the very best that the county and surrounding area has to offer.

Florists, photographers, wedding planners, caterers, and even stationary, can all be organised from afar. You can view our list of recommended suppliers on our website http://launcellsbarton.co.uk/recommended-suppliers, but if you’re looking for something else then just ask, we’re bound to know the right person!

Wedding Venue Cornwall

No “one-size fits all”

As an exclusive, private venue we offer our couples a space that is completely customisable. The flexibility of Launcells Barton allows you to make it your own, but we know you can’t bring everything so we’re happy to provide plenty of the basics.

Chairs, tables, PA systems, and more, are all included. We know that some of these items can cause big issues when planning from a distance, which is why we make sure that they’ll be ready for you on your special day.

Chairs included. wedding venue Cornwall

Beautiful Winter Styled Wedding In Cornwall

So a couple of weeks ago with the help of the wonderful Jenny from Jenny Wren weddings and events we organised a beautiful winter styled wedding here at Launcells Barton. We wanted to show, that no matter what the time of year or weather, you can have a simply stunning wedding.

We wanted to do something a little different and use candle light and bare branches and show sometimes simple is just simply breathtaking!

Some fantastic local suppliers were involved in the styled shoot, from the stunning hair and make- up, to the magnificent hanging branch canopy in the Mill Barn. It all came together beautifully! Oli our photographer came all the way down from London, as he loves shooting at Launcells Barton so much!

Oli– “From a photographer’s point of view Launcell’s Barton is a dream. Its beautiful, stately home interiors with windows in all the right places and beautiful rustic barn, mean there are always going to be incredible options whatever the weather outside, which makes it an ideal choice for a winter wedding. I’d shot a wedding here in the summer and continue to be surprised by how many different locations there are for excellent photographs all within a few minutes walk from the furthest point one side of the grounds to the other. On this occasion we made the most of some gorgeous low hanging winter sun and were treated to another amazing sunset there. A pleasure to shoot here again and to work with such a nice team with everyone doing their bit to make sure the whole thing come together as successfully as it did. A lovely escape from busy city life in London and I would have returned fully refreshed had I not stayed up to 3am drinking wine and catching up with Matt and Lara, who’s passion for creating such a wonderful venue was as evident now as it was when we first met back in the summer”

Beautiful Autumn Wedding in Cornwall

And here it is! our very last wedding of 2016 and
what a wedding it was to end on!

Kate and Geoff live just around the corner from Launcells Barton, with the place holding a special place in Kate’s heart. After finding out shortly after getting engaged that we were renovating the farm to offer weddings, Kate and Geoff knew straight away that they wanted their wedding here!

Country Wedding Venue Cornwall

Kate and Geoff first met or rather spoke 6 years ago, when Geoff rang kate’s office with a business enquiry. He was smitten straight away with the friendly, charming girl on the end of the phone, but it wasn’t until months later, at a party, that Geoff discovered that he was speaking to the same girl that he had taken a shine to on the phone months earlier!

Happy Couple- Wedding Venue

With the couple having a rather large wedding guest list and the New Events Barn not opening until 2017, Kate and Geoff asked if they could have a marquee for their w edding breakfast and use the grounds and Mill Barn for their welcome drinks reception, as well as the house for their close family and friends to stay. It was a pleasure working with Kate and Geoff as they were so relaxed and had complete faith in our vision for the place, popping in every few months to see the progress.

Kate and Geoff’s family and friends all got really stuck in and helped the couple to set up before the wedding. They even raided Kate’s mum’s garden of all her potted plants to decorate the entrance to the marquee!. I love that the couple included all guests in their day, even the little ones by giving them their own “kids corner”
Kate had a tree that had fallen down and she wanted to use the branches as a canopy in the marquee. All her friends and family were drafted in to strip the branches of leaves and although it took at least a day to do, the result was simply breathtaking! The lovely ladies from Bleujen Florists brought the place to life by styling the branches and tables with beautiful blooms. All I heard as people walked in was “WOW!!”

Geoff got ready at his home, while Kate got ready surrounded by her family, bridesmaids and some rather cute flower girls. It was so relaxed with everyone laughing, joking and enjoying a glass of bubbly as they got ready!

Just as Kate was about to leave the house and make her way to the church, the heavens opened and it tipped down with rain. I just couldn’t let that beautiful dress get wet, so picked up the dress and assisted Kate to the car as I knew her Bridemaids were already waiting down in the church for her. I asked Kate if she would like me to run down and meet her at the church to help her out, but Kate simply said “don’t be silly, get in the car with us” It was an honour to be in the bridal car and enjoy that special moment as the Bride made her way to the church with her father. As Kate made it to the church door and I was just about to run back up to Launcells Barton to make sure the welcome drinks were being set up, Kate asked if I would like to stay and watch the ceremony! It was an absolute pleasure to watch such a wonderful couple saying their vows to one another!

Not only had the couple been busy organising their wedding this year, but also opening a brand new garage workshop just across the road from Launcells Barton. With the garage being such a massive part of their lives, they wanted to include their business in their day, so after the ceremony Kate and Geoff drove their beautiful red vintage Porshe to the garage, for some time, just the two of them! I simply adore the photos in the workshop!

While the couple enjoyed some time alone, guests enjoyed drinks and canapés in the courtyard and Mill Barn, with the Bride and Groom joining them soon after for a glass of fizz!

As the guests made their way through the garden into the marquee, it gave the Bride and Groom the perfect chance to take a moment together, before heading over to be welcomed by their guests!

Oaktree Occasions provided the catering and really made the whole meal so much fun! Each table was served a whole roast joint, but it was up to the designated carver on each table who wore their own apron and chefs hat, to serve each guest. We were lucky enough to be offered a plate full and I can honestly say that I haven’t tasted a roast that good in a very long time! It was amazing and certainly got us ready to welcome another 150 guests to the evening!

Kate and Geoff’s vision for their wedding, was very simple. They wanted great food and to keep the drinks flowing, with fantastic company! Well they certainly achieved that! The day had a fantastic atmosphere and Kate and Geoff were beaming all day! It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of the wedding and the lead up to it. With family and friends even welcoming both Matt and I to enjoy aspects of the day with them! We wish Kate and Geoff all the happiness in the world as they start their married life together!

A few words from Kate:We fell in love with Launcells Barton at our first viewing. The owners, Matthew and Lara, have put so much love and effort into creating the most perfect of wedding venues. Relaxed, yet efficient, they put you at ease with their willingness to please and friendly can-do attitude. Nothing is too much trouble and they are on hand to help and advise from the day you book, right up to your wedding day.  Throughout the actual day, Matthew and Lara made sure that all aspects ran smoothly with no disruption to ourselves or our guests. Lara even got soaked helping me into the car whilst it was raining so that my dress and I stayed dry. “It’s been almost month now since our wedding and we’re still receiving comments from our friends and family complimenting Launcells Barton on their fabulous service and striking setting. We really did have the best weekend, above and beyond all our expectations.”
