On a somewhat windy day this July, Issy and Dom married surrounded by all their friends and family! Issy and Dom’s wedding was one of those weddings that made me fall in love with weddings all over again! The loveliest couple, the friendliest family & friends and one hell of a wedding band! Dom’s only request for the whole day was that they have the “velvet tones” a band that he’d seen a while back, but knew would be perfect for their day! He wasn’t wrong and are quite possibly one of the best bands we’ve ever had here! With the help of our amazing recommended local suppliers, Issy put her trust in them and everything came together perfectly, meaning they could both relax and enjoy every second!
After an early morning walk around the farm to clear her nerves, Issy popped the champagne and began getting ready in the Bridal Suite with her Bridesmaids and Mum, before her Dad and Brother were let in for an emotional reveal! Issy looked utterly beautiful in a beaded strappy gown and simple floor length veil.
Dom and his Groomsmen also got ready and popped the champagne in the house, making the most of the sitting room before heading out to meet guests at the Snug Bar.
The Mill Barn had been decorated beautifully the day before with cascading drapes installed by Do me a favour and soft pastel blooms styled by Bleujen.
Dom waited patiently as Issy made her way across from the Manor House to the Mill barn for the ceremony. We had all hands on deck making sure that her veil didn’t blow away in the wind and she arrived to her ceremony perfectly!
Issy’s dad walked her down the aisle to meet her eagerly awaiting Groom and as Father and Daughter reached the end of the aisle, the tears started to flow. It was such an emotional moment for all the family, but Issy said that once she saw Dom, all the nerves just fell away!
The newlyweds celebrated tying the knot with their confetti aisle, which had been brought inside to stop the wind blowing it away!
The wind did however mange to break Issy’s veil free as she stepped outside for Welcome Drinks! Luckily, Layla was on hand to catch it and made sure it was put back in place!
While guests enjoyed mingling with canapés and Fizz, Issy and Dom popped into the walled garden for some group photos.
Guests were then asked to take their seats in the Reception Barn for the wedding breakfast. The Reception Barn had been decorated the day before by Bleujen and Do Me a Favour. The Reception Barn looked stunning with drapes, festoon lights and a gorgeous flower and greenery backdrop that framed the whole barn beautifully!
As guests found their seats, Dom & Issy went off exploring the grounds before they were welcomed into their wedding breakfast with “Everlasting Love” playing out and guests cheering and twirling napkins! It was amazing to see everyone so happy and excited to welcome the newlyweds!
It was then straight into some rather emotional speeches before their caterers Beautiful And The Feast served their wedding meal.
As we turned the space around and their band set up, guests enjoyed cocktail hour and helped themselves to a sea of Espresso Martini’s and Dark and Stormy’s!
The Newlyweds then took their place centre stage for their first dance, before their band “The Velvet Tones” really kicked off the evening! Their band absolutely blew us away! Their soulful vibes and connection with partying guests was incredible to see!
A few words from the Happy Couple-
“Dom and I still can’t quite comprehend how truly wonderful our wedding day was. We felt so lucky to be surrounded by all of our closest family and friends as we became Husband and Wife in the most beautiful of settings. Everything we had planned and hoped for turned out to be better than we dreamed it would be… literally everything.
We knew from the moment we set eyes on Launcells Barton that we had finally found the place we were going to get married. We stumbled across it on our annual trip to Cornwall last year and are so thankful we did because we can’t imagine having a better experience. Every aspect of planning felt easy because Launcels Barton had the best recommended suppliers, an outstanding level of organisation and a team that went above and beyond to make sure we had the best day of our lives.
Lara and the Launcells team are so warm, helpful and organised. They made the whole planning process so easy and stress free. We had so many comments throughout the day from our guests saying how beautiful the venue was, how lovely all of the staff were and how smoothly our day ran.
We will never forget the love and joy we felt on our wedding day. Thank you for everything!”
Issy & Dom it was wonderful getting to know you both! You welcomed the Launcells team into your day and made every member of the team feel like a friend! It was incredible to see the love that you have for each other and the support and care all your friends and family have for you both! We wish you nothing but happiness as you step into the next chapter of your lives together!
