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 at Launcells become Man and Wife!

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.

The evening kicked off with an acoustic set by Kaj Music who had everyone up on the dance floor!

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?

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!

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!

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!

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 – We really could not have found a more stunning venue for our Wedding! We instantly fell in love with Launcells Barton when we came to visit in January 2016 and have really enjoyed seeing it transform over the past year and a half! Thanks again for all of your help leading up to and on our wedding day. It was a pleasure meeting and getting to know the both of you. You were absolutely amazing from the moment we first met and helped everything run so smoothly, nothing was ever too much trouble. 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!
