In July 2021, the Sun came out and the heat hit us all and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky for Bethany and Sam’s beautiful Summer Wedding.
Bethany and Sam live in Liverpool and planned their wedding with us, not only by taking full advantage of our amazing recommended supplier list, so they knew they were in the best hands for their special day, but by enjoying some long weekends in Cornwall, where they teamed up seeing their suppliers with visiting the venue and then planing all the finer details from back home. It was perfect for them as they had a fantastic excuse for a few weekends away together and gave all their friends and family a lovely break in Cornwall to celebrate with them on the big day!
Bethany and Sam created a simple elegance for their day with an abundance of greenery, candles, simple white flowers & touches of pampas grass throughout, which was all styled beautifully by Bleujen.
Bethany got ready in the manor house with her Bridesmaids and looked utterly gorgeous in a beaded low back dress with a cathedral length veil
As the Bridal party got ready in the Manor house, the guests started to arrive and take their seats in the Mill Barn.
As Bethany and her Bridal party made their way over, Sam waited nervously in the Mill Barn. The Groom wore black tie and the pair looked effortlessly glamorous.Guests followed the newlyweds outside and made their way into the walled garden, where the Launcells Barton team organised guests for confetti, or in Bethany and Sam’s case leaves!
Guests then made their way under the trees to find some shade from the sun and help themselves to a much needed drink. As Blue Lion Band played an acoustic set, pickled shack mingled serving canapés.
As guests enjoyed Pimms & Fizz, before being asked to find their seats in the Reception Barn, Bethany and Sam snuck off for some photos at the front of the house.
After Bethany and Sam were announced in as Newlyweds, their caterers Pickle Shack served a delicious 3 course meal, of pork belly followed by lemon tart. Speeches got underway shortly afterwards before guests milled outside, enjoying the last of the days sun. As the Launcells Barton team turned the space around, their band set up for the evening!
Guests were welcome inside for the couples first dance, and I think it’s safe to say, that guests took full advantage of the fact that all restrictions on weddings had finally been lifted and they could once again dance on the dance floor!!!
While some guests partied in the Reception Barn and some mingled outside watching the sun go down, Bethany and Sam quickly jumped on the Tractor, for a trip to catch the sunset across the farm and Cornish coast. What a way to watch the sun go down on your special day!
Once back, the newlyweds partied the night away with their guests, stopping only briefly for a romantic sparkler tunnel outside the barn.
A few words from the Bride– “Our wedding was absolutely everything we imagined and more, as we live in Liverpool and had our friends and family travel down to Cornwall everyone was able to have a mini holiday and bask in the beautiful sunshine and surroundings at launcells Barton! Being able to spend the night before at the Manor House with my bridesmaids, flower girls and mum was absolutely magical! Throughout the night we all had to pinch ourselves on how beautiful it was, waking up together with the Prosecco following whilst getting ready was just perfect and will be the happiest morning of my life!
Everything at launcells was amazing- one of the highlights for me and sam was being able to sneak off on the tractor and not only get some amazing pictures but grab some time just the two of us! We really wanted everyone including our flower girls and page boys to have the best day and the surroundings / grounds at launcells meant everyone could spill out on to the fields and enjoy themselves!”
