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!
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!
After the ceremony, guests walked the short walk back to Launcells Barton for their welcome drinks reception. Live music played as guests mingled and enjoyed lawn games in the garden and courtyard.
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!
The Reception Barn looked absolutely stunning, with bold coloured flowers and huge peonies filling tables, a stunning bold arch framing the top table and a flower wreath hanging from the centre beam!
Guest stood to congratulate the newlyweds, as they took their seats with Maxwell at their side. After the wedding breakfast, Myk gave a very heartfelt speech to his new wife and family, while his bestmen set about presenting a very organised and thorough speech with handouts and powerpoint presentation!
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!
As Jess and Myk arrived back to the barn and the band were ready to play their first dance, Myk slipped into a sparkly jacket in homage to their love of the Greatest Showman!
And then the party began…….
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!
