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!
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!
Being so blessed with the weather meant that they could set up the wedding ceremony the day before knowing they were in for a glorious wedding day!
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.
The Bride walked down an aisle lined with lanterns and flowers accompanied by her bridesmaids, flower girls and some rather dashing page boys! The first thing I spotted when greeting Matt and the couples 2 boys as they arrived for the wedding, were their adorable matching mini brogues!
It was an absolute pleasure to see the happy couple taking their vows under the wooden arbour in the walled garden, surrounded by friends and family. Their eldest son even had the important job of remembering the rings!
It was then out into the courtyard for Pimms and Prosecco!
And of course some time to explore the grounds!
Guests were called in to take their seats for the wedding breakfast- even on the hottest day of the year, the roast dinner served by one of our recommend suppliers Oaktree Occasions went down very well!
Matt and Ellie really wanted a relaxed wedding and what better way than to keep the kids – and big kids!- Happy! Guests enjoyed a bouncy castle, lawn games and even mini golf out on the lawn in front of the new Reception Barn and what a perfect day it was to be out relaxing on the lawn!
Their gorgeous monochrome and copper cake was made by the fabulous Hannah Cornish Cakes– who got the style of the wedding perfectly!
The gorgeous images you see were all taken by one of our fabulous recommended photographers Rebecca Roundhill, her style is always so natural and we love it!
Rebecca- “This was my third wedding at Launcells Barton for Ellie and Matt’s wedding day and it was a joy to be back! Lara and Matt have created such a stunning and equally relaxing space. 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!
