On a glorious sunny day in May, Mark and Lucia married in front of all their loved ones at St Swithin’s Church, just a short walk from the house.
We’ve known Mark for many years; he supports us on understanding the complex world of Google, so when he told us he had proposed to his beautiful wife to be and could only imagine Launcells Barton for the big day, we felt very honoured indeed!
Mark and Lucia decided they didn’t want a long engagement and, luckily for them, we had one date left in 2019! Using our fantastic recommend suppliers, Lucia and Mark brought together their beautiful, stress free day perfectly!
On the morning of their big day Lucia was joined in the Bridal Suite by her friends and family as Lizzy Couch MUA and Kylee-Marie Hair got everyone ready for the church. It was so lovely and relaxed when I popped in to see how everything was going – just how a wedding morning should be!
Mark and all their guests made their way to St Swithin’s Church and once I was sure everyone had taken their seats and no one would see Lucia leaving the house, we all made our way down, scooping her beautiful lace dress up, making sure it was perfect for when she saw Mark for the first time!
After their ceremony the happy couple were welcomed by a cascade of confetti as they made their way back up to Launcells Barton for their welcome drinks reception, where their band were playing as guests arrived.
Before we invited guests to take their seats in the reception barn for their meal, Lucia and Mark had family photos in the garden, before going off for a few moments by themselves.
The Reception Barn had been beautifully decorated the day before by Bleujen, with foliage and a mix of pink and white flowers hanging from the centre beam, while the tables looked simply elegant with vases full of flowers and candles. The newlyweds were beaming as we announced them in for their meal, which was catered by the amazing Woodfired Kitchen.
After their speeches everyone mingled outside as the band got set up ready for the party to begin!
Everyone celebrated with Mark and Lucia as they cut their cake and enjoyed their first dance together, before everyone was welcomed to join the newlyweds on the dance floor! Mark and Lucia then took a bit of time together to take it all in and made the most of the incredible sunset!
A few words from the Groom! “I wanted to say thanks so much to yourself and Matt for all your help and for letting us share our day at the amazing venue you’ve built over the last few years. We’ll both remember the day for the rest of our lives and it couldn’t have gone better! Launcells Barton has something a little magical about it – as soon as we visited we soon knew it was the one for us. We’d always wanted to get married in a church, so the proximity to one of the prettiest in Cornwall was an added bonus to the stunning manor house and countryside location. All of our family and friends had the most wonderful day and will remember it for a long, long time”
Congratulations again to Mark and Lucia! It was a joy seeing the both of you celebrating your special day surrounded by your loved ones! Thank you for letting us be a part of it!
