Irish boy meets Welsh girl and brings all their friends and family to celebrate together in Cornwall!

On a gorgeous sunny day in July, Sophie and Conal made their vows to one another under a cascade of flowers in the Walled Garden surrounded by all their loved ones.

It was a bit of a different wedding for us, as Irish tradition states that weddings are a 2 day event full of celebration and games! It certainly was that! Sophie and Conal’s family were so much fun and so friendly and welcoming, that I may have ended up dancing with Sophie’s dad learning how to Irish dance!

Sophie & Conal’s family were all so lovely and welcoming to every member of the team and really created a fun and friendly feel to the day. It was an absolute joy to be up dancing with everyone and although I had no idea what I was doing (as did a lot of other people) it was such a great experience!

Getting to know our venue

We know that when you’re looking through a wedding venue website, it can sometimes be hard to picture the layout of the various places in your mind; where exactly is the Manor House in relation to the ceremony? How close are you to the Reception Barn? Where will people spend the majority of their time on the day?

These are just some of the questions you may be wondering before you arrive for a viewing and a walk around our venue. To answer some of those for you, we’ve had this beautiful, illustrated map drawn up to help you better understand the layout and where you’ll spend one of the most special days of your lives.

Here’s just a little more information on each of those places featured on our map!

Launcells Barton Wedding Venues Cornwall

The Manor House

The Manor House is one of the most iconic features of our venue and the place your bridal party will call home for the weekend. Sleeping up to 15, the older half of the house is thought to date back to the 14th Century and gives amazing views across the venue. If you’re a bride that fancies a sneaky peak of your guests arriving, then we can show you just the spot!

Wedding Venues Cornwall

The Mill Barn

The Mill Barn is where many of our couples tie the knot and it’s easy to understand why. This 19th century stone built barn has been lovingly restored to provide you with an elegant and visually stunning space in which to say ‘I do’. If that wasn’t enough, it’s also got its own bar beneath, which is ideal for your arrival drinks.

The Walled Garden

Dreaming of an outdoor wedding ceremony in the summer sunshine? You wouldn’t be alone; our walled garden has played host to some incredible weddings over the past few years. Its central position means that even if you’re not saying ‘I do’ under our beautiful wooden arbor, it still makes for a great space for guests to mingle during your day.

A Family coming together and a party to remember for Jess and Myk’s Summer Wedding in Cornwall!

On a gorgeous June day, Jess and Myk married within St Swithins Church that’s just a minutes walk from the front doors of the house with their Son in their arms. This wedding had everything, heartfelt speeches, limbo, a very sparkly jacket to kick off their first dance, oh, and there may have been some underpants with the Groom’s face on!

Wedding Venues Southwest

It’s been a busy couple of years for Jess and Myk, as shorty after booking their wedding with us, they found out they were expecting their first baby! It was great seeing Jess blossom through the planning process and then finally meeting their little cutie Maxwell, who enjoyed the whole day with his newlywed parents!

Jess got ready for her big day in the Manor House, with all her bridesmaids, and little Maxwell  never too far away for a cuddle.

As Jess got ready, Myk arrived with all twelve groomsmen for a quick drink, before heading off to the church to welcome all their guests!

Jess then slipped into her gorgeously elegant dress and all her Bridesmaids got ready to make their way to the church. Jess looked absolutely breathtaking in a simple elegant sheath gown with subtle lace touches finished off with that gorgeous bright and beautiful bouquet!

Emotions ran high, when Myk and Maxwell saw their beautiful Bride for the first time at the end of the aisle!

As guests made their way to find their seats in the Reception Barn, Jess & Myk took a bit of time to themselves and enjoyed a quick game of badminton, before being welcomed in for their wedding breakfast!

As we turned around the Reception Barn and their band set up, guests mingled and Jess and Myk took a ride on our Tractor to find a bit of time to take in the day!

And then the party began…….

Wedding Venues Cornwall Wedding Venues Cornwall

A few words from Jess–  ” From the moment we arrived on our initial visit we knew that Launcells Barton was the perfect place for us to celebrate our wedding with all our friends and family. The venue itself is so unbelievably beautiful, the house, the barns, the grounds, we fell in love with the place. Lara and Matt were so welcoming and excited about helping us achieve our wedding dreams! We could not imagine anywhere more perfect. Finding the time to plan wasn’t the easiest for us once our beautiful baby boy arrived, but Lara and her team were so helpful. They provided lots advice and recommendations, and using some of their amazing partner suppliers made things so easy for us!

Our wedding day was perfect, one of the best things was that on the actual day we enjoyed ourselves from start to finish. This was so important as we knew that we weren’t going to be able to relive the day, we wanted to make the most of it and it’s thanks to Lara, Matt and their team that we were able to do this. As well as the big things – epic venue, great hosts, beautiful accommodation etc. there were so many small details that made us feel really special.

Launcells Barton is the ideal wedding venue and would highly recommend it to anyone. We’d also like to thank Lara and Matt so much for giving us a day that we can look back on for the rest of our lives with such overwhelming happiness and joy.”

It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you both and seeing your family grow along the way! We wish you all nothing but happiness and laughter, as no doubt Maxwell will keep you both on your toes getting himself into mischief!

Sunsets and rolling Cornish countryside for this gorgeous July wedding!

Last July Sam & Mary-Anne brought all their friends and family down with them from London and celebrated in the gorgeous Cornish Countryside on a beautiful summer’s day!

Barn Wedding Venues Cornwall

Not only did they bring their friends and family down with them, but they brought the wonderful London-based Wedding Planner, Shaun Johnson, who we’d put them in touch with to give them a bit more support piecing everything together, while Sam was away playing professional rugby and Mary-Anne was working long hours as a lawyer.

Bleujen styled the Mill Barn and Reception Barn beautifully the day before with delicate soft peachy pinks & greenery.

Mary-Anne got ready in the Manor House with all her bridesmaids and close family around her. Meanwhile Shaun and I were on hand to make sure all the little details were perfect and the button holes in place! Sam arrived with his ushers and put the finishing touches together, before grabbing a drink in the Snug Bar.

A few words from the happy couple “From the moment we saw photos of Launcells Barton we felt such a connection to the venue and then when we came down to meet you and look around we just knew we couldn’t get married anywhere else. Launcells is such a special place and you’ve really made it into the most wonderful venue. We felt as if we’d always known you, and as if we really belonged there, which is exactly the vibe we wanted for the wedding. You were so lovely and helpful in the run up and on the day- Lara you fitted in like a wonderfully helpful guest, and Matt thank you so much for the tractor ride up into the fields to see the sunset! We really had the most incredible day and could not have hoped for a happier, more magical wedding. Thank you so much for opening your home up to us, and letting us be a part of the Launcells Family” 

We wish Mary-Anne and Sam every happiness for the future, especially as they are soon to welcome their first baby into the family! Exciting times for you both!

Beautiful May Wedding in the Cornish Countryside!

On a glorious sunny day in May, Mark and Lucia married in front of all their loved ones at St Swithins church, just a short walk from the house.

We’ve know 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!

Wedding Venues Cornwall and Devon

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!

Exclusive Use Wedding Venues Cornwall and Devon Exclusive Use Wedding Venues Cornwall and Devon

Mark and all their guests made their way to St Swithins 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!   Country Wedding Venues Cornwall Exclusive Use Wedding Venues Cornwall Church Ceremony wedding Cornwall Church wedding Cornwall

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.

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!

Floral Inspiration for your Wedding at Launcells Barton

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make a big difference, and that definitely applies to your wedding day; from the beautiful bouquet for the bride to a stunning archway adorning the top table at your wedding reception, the flowers and floristry on your big day are something you can really make your own and definitely help to create that ‘wow’ factor.

No matter if you’re a green-fingered gardener or couldn’t tell a peony from a primrose, here’s a little inspiration from some of our previous couples…

Our Mill Barn

 If you’re wanting to get married in our beautifully converted 19th Century stone-built Mill Barn, the world really is your oyster when it comes to floristry.  As a blank canvas you can choose to keep things minimal, perhaps paying attention to those little details like the end of aisles and registry table, or making a big statement with an archway under which you say ‘I do’.

Bride and Groom kiss and sign register at a wedding venue in Cornwall

Getting married in the garden

There’s something very special about Launcells Barton when the sun is shining.  From the Cornish countryside that just looks a little greener, to the beautiful sunset over the sea, it’s easy to understand why so many of our couples choose to get married outside.

The great news here is that you’re already being married surrounded by nature’s wonderful and ever-changing canvas, but here’s how some of our couples have used floristry to make their ceremony jaw-droppingly unique…

Church weddings

If you’re getting married in the nearby Parish Church of St Swithin’s, you’ll have an incredibly romantic backdrop for whatever floristry you choose. Why not mark the moment you enter the church with a floral archway? How about adorning the 12th Century stone pillars with ivy for a rustic and traditional feel? Or a beautiful floral decoration at the alter? Here’s a little more inspiration to get your mind going…

Your reception

Our Reception Barn is a complete blank canvas so you really can make it the reception of your dreams. Have you pictured a hanging arrangement that becomes a real feature of the room and takes people’s breath away? Perhaps an archway for the top table? The most beautiful colours on your tables? Here are some of our recent favourites…

Not sure where to start?

Don’t panic if you don’t know where to start when it comes to your flowers. We’re lucky to have some great local florists who will be able to take your ideas and make them a reality.  No matter if you’re travelling from afar or living locally, all of our suppliers are here to help make your day the one you’ve always dreamed of.

Edgy and elegant Spring wedding in Cornwall!

Back in April Georgie and Rich said their vows to one another on a beautiful Spring day surrounded by all their loved ones, but it wasn’t just the sun that was beaming that day!

A few words from the happy couple“We first found Launcells Barton on Instagram and instantly felt that this venue was different to so many of the other venues we had looked at and booked a viewing as soon as we could! We loved the fact that the venue was exclusive use, the ceremony and reception could be held in the same area, you could set up the venue the day before the wedding and then you could also have the bridal party stay for two nights in a beautiful house on site. When we first saw the venue, we had high expectations – and they were all completely lived up to and more! We were blown away by the sheer beauty of the venue but also felt completely relaxed in the good hands of Lara and her team and immediately felt that they were complete professionals and ready to make sure our day was exactly how we wanted it to be. Lara was always available to answer my questions in the lead up to the wedding and could not have been more helpful on the actual day making sure that the day ran smoothly from start to finish. All of the bar team were so friendly and helpful and we will treasure the photos we had on the tractor ride from Matt on our way to the top field for sunset! We were lucky to have some absolutely incredible suppliers which were mostly all recommended by Lara – this was so helpful considering we live 4 hours from Bude! Ourselves, the whole bridal party and all of our guests were made to feel so very welcome throughout our whole experience at Launcells. We can honestly say that our wedding day was the best day of our lives and we really cannot thank Lara, Matt and their wonderful team enough for helping to make our wedding day so very special. Thank you for everything”

Georgie and Rich, It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you both throughout your time planning your wedding with us and it was incredible to be a part of a special day that was shared by so many lovely friends and family! We wish you both nothing but happiness as you start your new lives as Mr & Mrs Fields!

Are you dreaming of a barn wedding venue in Cornwall?

As a couple you may well already have an idea of what you’re looking for in a wedding venue.  Perhaps you have your hearts set on marrying outside, being close the coast, saying ‘I do’ surrounded by glorious Cornish countryside or at a venue that’s heaped in heritage.

The great news is that we’re able to tick all of those boxes, but an option that proves to be particularly popular for couples viewing our venue is our barn weddings, so let’s tell you a little about our barns and how they could work well for your own wedding…

First Kiss Wedding Venues Cornwall and Devon

Our 19th Century Mill Barn

With beautifully exposed beams and large French doors that leave the space bathed in sunshine, our lovingly restored 19th century stone-built Mill Barn has a real wow-factor and is definitely a popular choice for our couples.  Many of the original stone features in the barn remain exposed to ensure it has lost none of its original character, and with a capacity for up to 160 seated guests it’s great for wedding ceremonies of all sizes.

Tucked away beneath the Mill Barn you’ll find a beautiful rustic bar, which is often the first place your guests will head once they arrive at our venue.  Constructed from reclaimed wood salvaged during the barn’s renovation, there’s a cosy seating area that makes this the perfect place to relax, enjoy a drink and begin the day!

Where you’ll spend your wedding day

Weddings are always incredible days filled with many magical moments; love, laughter, dinner and dancing, you name it, it’s all in there! We know that for you and your guests the emotion of the day can also make it a long one, which is why our venue is carefully crafted to ensure that each part of your day is spent in its own unique and special space.  From getting ready, to waving your guests off underneath the star-filled countryside skies, here’s how you could spend your own big day… 

Watch your guests arrive in style
For most brides and grooms, watching their guests arrive excited for their day is something they only get to really enjoy when they watch the wonderful work of their videographer several weeks later. At Launcells Barton you get something that is very special; because our Manor House is so central to the venue you’ll be able to peep through the windows to see your guests arriving and congregating in anticipation of your big entrance.  If you’re due to be married in the church they’ll even make their way right past the front door!

Exclusive Use Wedding Venue

A tipple for their arrival
The first place your guests head to is one of our two onsite bars.  This is a great space that’s been lovingly created from parts of our own working farm; you’ll find wood reused from former cow sheds and a rustic feel that you just can’t beat! On sunny days they’ll be able to congregate in our open courtyard, before making their way to the ceremony!

Outdoor wedding Cornwall and Devon

Your ceremony
It very much depends on the type of ceremony you’re having as to where everyone heads next! If you’ve always dreamt of saying ‘I do’ outside then our walled garden is going to be the perfect place for you and your guests to share the special moment whilst seated on pews made from wood from our own land.  Outdoor weddings at Launcells can be absolutely breathtaking; get married in Spring and you’re surrounded by blossoming plants and flowers, tie the knot in Summer and you’ll hopefully be surrounded by beautiful blue skies and green flora.

Exclusive Use Wedding Venue Cornwall and Devon

If an outdoor ceremony isn’t for you then our Mill Barn will be the home of one of the most special moments of your lives.  Say ‘I do’ under the exposed beams of this lovingly restored barn, which is just metres from the courtyard everyone will be arriving in.

Time for the reception
There’s no getting in the car and heading off to the reception venue here! You’ll make the short walk – and when we say short walk we definitely mean it – to our purpose built reception venue, complete with its own bar for you and your guests to enjoy! This will be the home to your wedding breakfast, with a big entrance for you to both be welcomed for the first time as a married couple!

Barn Wedding Venues Cornwall and Devon

Whilst this will be where you spend much of your time for the rest of the day there’s a number of outdoor areas your guests can enjoy if the weather is kind, and many guests often comment on how stunning the venue also looks at night, with specially situated lighting highlighting some of the natural features of the surrounding buildings.

Exclusive Use Wedding Venues Cornwall

Walk into a new future
With the sun setting on your special day you’ll have a little time to have photos taken walking toward the coast or surrounded by stunning Cornish countryside – is there any other way you’d ever want to finish the day?

For more information on our exclusive use wedding venue in Cornwall please give us a call on 01288 352352 and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have or arrange a viewing.
