Rustic Summer Celebrations for a Destination Wedding in Cornwall

As the colder days set in and the days become shorter, we’re looking back at the long hot summer we enjoyed in July to warm us all up! And what better way then reminiscing over the gorgeous rustic wedding that saw Katie and Charlie become man and wife under the open rafters of the Mill Barn.

Katie and Charlie traveled down from Worcestershire with all their friends and family to celebrate their wedding here at Launcells Barton, as the Cornish Countryside holds a special place in their hearts.

Their day started with them both getting ready in the house and their friends and family making sure that they didn’t accidentally run into each other in the corridors!

It was soon time for their guests to start arriving and Charlie to make his way to the Mill Barn and wait for his Bride’s arrival!

The Mill Barn was styled simply with logs entwined with flowers lining the aisle.

After personal readings from friends and family, Katie and Charlie said their vows to one another and sealed them with a kiss. Wedding Venues Cornwall and Devon

A few words for the beautiful Bride- “We always knew we had chosen the right venue for our wedding from the moment we saw it, but on the day even our wildest dreams were exceeded. Launcells Barton is a truly stunning venue, from the barns to the beautiful house. Being able to use the venue for the whole weekend and have our closest friends stay with us really added something special to our wedding weekend. The team at Launcells were all so wonderful with their fun and professional manner and really looked after every one of our guests. Lara especially was incredible on the day ensuring everything ran smoothly and on time, she was also definitely a calming presence to a nervous and stressed bride!”

It was Tom Frosts’ first wedding photographing here at Launcells Barton and I think we can all agree he did an incredible job capturing the couples special day!

All the team at Launcells Barton wish you all the happiness in the world Katie and Charlie. You were a pleasure to work with, with your relaxed and easy going approach to everything and we wish you nothing but the best of luck for the future!

Beautifully laid back wedding in Cornwall, full of fun and laughter!

Back in July saw Justin and Karen saying their vows to one another under a beautiful sweeping arch of greenery.

It also saw the end of the heat wave that gave us such a wonderful summer and, although it gave the farm some much needed rain, it did mean we needed to bring the celebrations inside. However, Karen and Justin’s excitement and totally calm and relaxed attitude towards their day, meant that no matter what the weather was, nothing could dampen their spirits! It was a day filled with love, laughter and happiness!

The day before their wedding their florist, Lisa from Cabbage White Flowers, who had come all the way down from Surrey as florist, friend and guest, set to work decorating the Mill Barn and Reception Barn.  While Lisa worked her magic Justin and his friends were up the ladder putting up all the beautiful fairy lights! The venue looked stunning with circular arrangements of greenery hanging from the beams in the Reception Barn and the aisle in the Mill Barn lined with milk churns filled with arrangements of beautiful flowers!

Karen got ready in the Manor House at Launcells Barton, while Justin got ready at his family’s home near by. Although Karen didn’t need much help, Hannah Woodgates Hair Design & Lizzy Couch Make Up helped to make Karen glow on her big day!

We then announced the newlyweds to all their eagerly awaiting friends and family, before Dartmoor kitchen got underway with serving a delicious wedding breakfast! Do you know why it’s called a wedding breakfast? Well, it’s referred to as a ‘breakfast’ because it is the first meal in the newly married couple’s lives together and the first meal you eat as a married couple!

A few words from the gorgeous bride herself!-  It is difficult to put into words just how much we feel you contributed to us making our weekend so special.  Always on hand to answer our many questions, accommodating to our parents and suppliers, ready to give considered advice (that was always spot on!), your calm, professional, experienced and flexible approach meant that we had the day of our dreams.
For me personally, I have to say that I surprised myself with how anxious I got in the lead up to the day.  Even on the Saturday morning I woke up worried that things would not be done or thought about.  I think that must be a normal feeling for a bride, especially someone who likes to be in control of everything! What I learnt from all of this was that the worry was a complete waste of time – not only did you have everything in hand but you thought of and dealt with things that I did not even think of.  From early on the Saturday morning I really felt like a Bride.  And you being there was the biggest part of me feeling this way: the way you dealt with the bagpipes, to the way you facilitated the registrar visit, to the way you said ‘don’t worry I will sort out your dress’ as I was about to walk down the aisle amongst many other things you did, allowed me to feel like the most perfect bride and for us to have truly the best day ever.  And I am pretty certain that people who chose to get married elsewhere do not get this treatment.
From the moment we visited it, we knew it was the perfect place and didn’t even consider anyone else.  We loved the feel, the accommodating nature and the feeling that you would all do anything you could to accommodate us. 
I am getting quite emotional as I write this! Thank you just doesn’t seem to cover it but we are so grateful and thankful we found you and Launcells Barton – there is nothing we would change about the experience. It was a pleasure meeting you both and, without sounding patronising, I have found your determination and approach to building up this venue very inspirational.

These gorgeous photos are thanks to one of our recommended suppliers Andrew, from Travis and Brown. He has photogrpahed a few weddings here since we opened in 2016 and every wedding he has really captured the couple and the individuality of their day. It’s great watching Andrew shoot a wedding, as he allows those nature moments to happen, but always there to offer reassuring words when needed.

It was an absolute joy being involved with your wedding Karen and Justin. It was wonderful to see two people so in love and meant for one another, as well as accepting of each others foibles – if Karen’s speech is anything to go by that is! Myself, Matt and Sophia wish you nothing but every happiness for the future as you start your married life together.

Australia meets Cornwall for a breathtaking relaxed summer wedding in the Cornish Countryside!

Back in June we saw the beautiful and relaxed wedding of Sophia and David.
I’ve been waiting to tell their story for so long, as they really did take a leap of faith with us and what an incredible day it turned out to be!

Exclusive Use Wedding Venues Cornwall

In January 2017, as we had just laid the foundations of our new Reception Barn, Sophia and David got in contact about holding their wedding with us, the only thing was they weren’t actually going to see the venue until a couple of days before, as they were now living in Australia due to work! Sophia’s family are from Cumbria and David’s from the Midlands, so they wanted a neutral location and somewhere that had a special meaning for them both. As they both love travelling and reminiscing about trips together, Cornwall was where they wanted to bring everyone together on their special day!

Luxury Wedding Venues Cornwall and Devon

With a laptop in hand and iphone for back up due to the then sketchy Wifi, that we were still trying to get set up across the venue, I sat down to do my very first Skype viewing! As I walked around showing Sophia and David the different parts of the venue and standing in front of a muddy trench explaining what was going to be built, it became apparent, just how lovely they both were and what a lovely journey this was going to be with them!

Every few months, we would sit down in front our laptops and have a chat about how all the wedding planning was coming along and even though they were 1000’s of miles away, we had such fun laughing getting to know one another.

Launcells Barton destination Wedding Venue

Then the day came, just two days before there wedding, when I was going to meet them both for the very first time and they were going to see the venue for real! Slightly nerve wracking, but thankfully they were ecstatic and absolutely over the moon, which was a huge relief!  After talking to them so much in the run up to their wedding, meeting them in person for the first time was like catching up with old friends!

Only a few days later and Sophia, David and all their friends and family arrived to set up for their wedding. I have to say it was one of the most relaxed set up’s I’d ever been a part of-baring in mind the couple had organised everything from across the globe and were meeting their suppliers for the very first time!  With music on and everyone laughing and joking, everything turned out beautifully, as they had complete trust in all their chosen suppliers.

Bleujen created a gorgeous hanging wreath, full of greenery that hung from the centre beam in the Reception Barn.  They also styled the arbour for the couple’s outdoor ceremony with brightly coloured peonies and roses to give a pop of colour!

On the morning of their wedding as the sun shone, reminding her of the Summer she had just left behind in Oz, Sophia got ready with her friends and family around her.  Meanwhile David got ready close by, before making his way to Launcells Barton.

A few words from the gorgeous Bride herself- Sophia ” What can we say… booking a venue which wasn’t yet built, in a town we’d never been to seems like a crazy idea when we think back. But putting our faith in Matt and Lara was the best decision. The whole planning process was a breeze with Lara on hand to answer all our questions. When we finally saw the venue, three days before the big day…despite the fog, we could tell it was as beautiful as the Skype videos we’d seen. The house is amazing, with more than enough space for a full bridal party. The walled garden was the perfect spot for an outdoor ceremony; a real sun trap which literally smells of roses! And the barn and grounds which provided so many areas for our guests to enjoy. We had the most amazing wedding and mini adventure in Bude, thanks team Launcells! So nice that we both feel like old friends rather than supplier and client. Sure you guys don’t fancy a trip over to Melbourne!? x”

These absolutely gorgeous images are thanks to the very talented Oli McGivern. Oli photographed one of our very first weddings and came down from London to work with us on our first Winter styled shoot back in 2017. We even changed the positioning of some of the windows in the Reception Barn at the very last minute, due to Oli explaining – over a few glasses of wine- about the lighting and mathematics of getting the best possible light for photographs! I still don’t understand the maths side of things, but he does get some incredible shots!!

Wedding Photographer Cornwall

Oli– “It was a joy to be back at my favourite venue with such a lovely couple and their friends who made me feel like one of the gang. My first return since the new barn was put in and Matt & Lara have done a fantastic job with it. The sun’s hat was firmly on and once again Launcells retains its title as the Easiest Venue to Photograph at the 2018 McGivern Photography Venue Awards. “

As Sophia and David settle back in to life in Australia, but this time as man and wife, we wish nothing but happiness for you both. It was a privilege to be a part of your special day and be welcomed as a friend by yourselves and all your friends and family who just couldn’t have been lovelier! We’re sure there will be lots of adventures to come as you continue to explore the World, but we hope that you will stay in touch and look back at your time in Cornwall as one of the happiest of your life!

Fun filled Spring wedding full of of laughter and Ice Cream in Cornwall!

Back in April Duncan and Tor celebrated becoming man and wife surrounded by friends and family on a gorgeous Spring day! They first met nearly 7 years ago when Duncan popped into Tor’s family Ice Cream shop in Bude and they quickly hit it off. It wasn’t long before the couple became inseparable.

Wedding Venues Devon

Shortly after booking their wedding with us, Duncan and Tor relocated to Yorkshire for work and were supported, with planning their day from afar,by all their friends and family who live close by.

Duncan got ready for the big day at his parents house not too far away, while Tor and her friends and family got ready at Launcells Barton.

Tor looked absolutely gorgeous in a lace fishtail dress, adding a simple full length veil for the finishing touch!

A few words from the Bride herself ” We only visited one venue because we knew that Launcells was the one, it offered that country elegance that we wanted whilst providing the flexibility of so many indoor and outdoor areas to use for all of the personal touches like the ice cream station and pizza van. The grounds provided the perfect setting for our photos and catered for the surprise bouncy castle which was just the BEST THING EVER. Launcells was the dream venue and the staff really helped make everything flow effortlessly, we had such a gorgeous stress-free day! Absolutely everything went to plan and we just wish we could do it all over again because its true what they say, it really is over before you know it.Tor 

These gorgeous photos are all thanks to Alex Toze who captured Duncan & Tor’s special day for them, I think we can all agree that his natural approach, is simply stunning!

” This is why I love what I do. The most fun, friendly and welcoming people you could meet. And I get to capture one of the most important days of their lives in the most beautiful of settings. Duncan and Tor planned their wedding day to perfection and when you have a couple to work with like this, at a venue such as Launcells Barton, it makes it so easy, fun and enjoyable to capture the magic. Launcells has so much to offer, a photographers dream, I can’t wait to come back” Alex Toze

Congratulations to Duncan and Tor, we hope you have a lifetime of happiness as you settle into your new lives as man and wife in Yorkshire, i’m sure it won’t be long until you are back by the sea visiting friends and family!

Mulled wine and sparkle for this laid back Winter Wedding in Cornwall!

Back in December, on a bright Winter’s day Ailsa and Phil, along with the help of their two little girls tied the knot in front of all their friends and family!

Winter Wedding In Cornwall

If ever people think they can’t organise a wedding in under a year, Ailsa and Phil are perfect proof that it can be done and planned to perfection with no detail missed! Having given themselves only 4 months due to Phil’s leave from the Marines!

I have to admit I do love a Winter wedding, just as much as I love a Summer wedding! Yes you don’t always know what the weather is going to do, but as long as you have inside and outside options, it doesn’t really matter. Winter and Summer are just very different weddings, but both have their charms! A Winter wedding the sun sets earlier, so you get all the atmosphere of the candles flickering away, guests all cosy inside with hot mulled wine and, if you can’t add a bit of sparkle at Christmas, then when can you?!  Ailsa and Phil’s wedding was all those things and more!

Wedding Venues In Cornwall

Ailsa got ready in the house with her friends and two little girls by her side, while Phil got into his uniform with all his friends at the couple’s house. Ailsa had the most stunning beaded grey dress from Needle and Thread and her bridesmaids wore mix matched 3/4 length grey, white and pink dresses which fitted the laid back feel of the wedding perfectly.  The bridal party’s make up was perfected by one of our faves and recommended supplier Lizzy Couch.

Rebecca Roundhill one of our recommended suppliers and all round fabulous photographer captured all these beautiful images for Ailsa & Phil’s day. It’s so great having Rebecca with us during a wedding, she is a burst of sunshine and is just so relaxed- which is what years of experience brings!

A few words from Ailsa- I’m struggling with where to start, because it’s so difficult to put into words just how wonderful our day was. From the moment we met Lara and looked around the venue, there was no question that we were going to get married there. It really is a hidden gem. We live 3 minutes away and never even knew it existed. It had everything we wanted from a venue; a beautiful space for our ceremony in the Mill Barn, a large reception Barn for our guests to eat and be merry, a picturesque setting for capturing stunning photos, and a gorgeous farmhouse with the most amazing bridal suite you will ever see! That bathroom!

You’d think that only giving ourselves 4 months to plan our wedding would be stressful. But, I can honestly say that I enjoyed every second of the organisation. Communication between ourselves and Lara was excellent and any questions we had were promptly answered.
The day itself was just perfect. Being a December wedding we almost expected bad weather. Every part of our day was inside or undercover so, rain or shine, it really didn’t matter. However, we woke up to blue skies and pink clouds over the farmhouse. It looked beautiful!

One of the best things about the venue is that it is so flexible. Whatever your vision for your wedding, I’m pretty sure it can be achieved here. We had a very relaxed, informal ceremony and we chose to do the speeches immediately after with canapes and welcome drinks in the Mill Barn, rather than during the wedding breakfast. We also had bag pipes during the ceremony, a speech delivered using a guitar and a Scottish Ceilidh in the evening. Anything is possible here!

Throughout the day Matt, Lara and their team behind the scenes made sure that everything ran smoothly. If there were any hiccups we really had no idea because we were just enjoying ourselves so much! Thank you Matt, Lara and team for all the hard work that went into making such special memories for Phil and I. We couldn’t have asked for more. I highly recommend Launcells Barton as a wedding venue: It’s beautiful, flexible, and Lara and Matt are dedicated to making your day as carefree and memorable as possible!

Ailsa and Phil’s wedding was totally relaxed and reflected them as a couple perfectly, incorporating their young family, Ailsa’s scottish roots and Phil’s duty to the Marine’s, making every special moment personal to them. We wish Ailsa and Phil a fantastic future together and sure we will see you out and about as your young family grows!

Guests were blown away… literally! At Charlotte and Dan’s elegant Wedding in Cornwall!

At the end of October Storm Brian rampaged through Cornwall sending fences and furniture flying across the farm. With the storm in full swing and Brian giving everything he’d got, not even the sideways rain and 70 mph winds could wipe the smiles from Charlotte and Dan’s faces on their Wedding day!

Exclusive Use Wedding Venues Cornwall

We first met Charlotte and Dan at our Open Day event last year. we only had a muddy hole and an artists impression of what the new Reception Barn was going to look like to show them.  After being taken with the renovations already completed, they set their date and quickly got on with planning their autumn wedding!

Charlotte, Dan and all their family and friends arrived the day before to decorate and set up. Everybody was laughing and joking and enjoying time together seeing all their plans taking shape! I loved chatting to Charlotte as she excitedly showed all the little touches she had put together, including the stunning artwork of the house that she had commissioned for the table plans, menus and order of service!

The Reception barn was dressed so elegantly with greenery and fairy lights hanging from beams and draped around the dinning area.  Each table was dressed with candles in mix & match gold holders and vases of flowers filled with soft pinks, creams and greenery. The candles and fairy lights looked wonderful, as by the time guests sat down for the wedding breakfast, the sun was setting and the candles created a gorgeously soft lighting.  All of the beautiful flowers were supplied by one of our faves and local florist Bleujen.

Charlotte got ready, on the blustery autumn morning, within the house surrounded by friends and family. Hannah Woodgates Hair Design & Laura Le Page Make Up, took care of beautifying all the bridal party! While Dan and his friends got ready at Penleaze, just a stones throw away from Launcells Barton.

Depict Photography who shoot mainly on film captured these gorgeous images to create these beautiful memories for Charlotte and Dan!

A few words from Charlotte-  Dan and I first visited Launcells Barton on a rainy January afternoon and were immediately taken with Lara and Matt’s enthusiasm and the sheer beauty of the venue. At the time the main barn was just a building site, but we could see how beautiful is was going to be and fell in love with the main house and reception barn. We knew it was the perfect venue for the relaxed feel we wanted but also enough of a blank canvas that we could make it our own. All the time, money and effort planning was completely worth it on the day – despite having an uninvited guest in the form of ‘Storm Brian’ with his gale force winds and driving rain…! Luckily Launcells Barton proved the perfect choice and the weather was soon forgotten as the beauty of the venue is as much about its interior as its exterior – a quality we had struggled to find at other venues.  Lara, Matt and Alannah coordinated and supported us through the day perfectly alongside our caterers Pickleshack – who couldn’t stop gushing about the amazing kitchen! One thing that was really important to me was that the evening had a good ‘flow’, I really wanted to avoid a venue where guests were segregated into different rooms depending on whether they were at the bar, relaxing or dancing and the main barn was perfect for this – after our meal the bar doors were thrown open and everyone danced the night away no matter where they were. I honestly couldn’t fault the entire weekend and would do it all again in a heartbeat – rain included! Thank you so much to Lara, Matt, Alannah and the rest of the Launcells team for helping us create the wedding of our dreams!

The whole weekend was full of laughter and their positivity shone through, never letting the elements stop them from enjoying their weekend and always seeing the best of everything! I can even remember a hashtag being used to tell storm Brian exactly what they thought of him!! It was a pleasure to be involved in such a welcoming and joyous day and wish Charlotte and Dan nothing but happiness for their future together, we’re sure the balance of Charlotte’s creativity and Dan’s practicality is set to make the perfect partnership!

G&T’s on ice for this gorgeous autumnal wedding in Cornwall!

In October we saw the beautiful autumnal wedding of John and Carly who we first met last year, before the new Reception Barn was yet to see any of it’s foundations laid. Carly grew up on a farm herself and wanted that countryside feel for their wedding. Luckily, being used to rural life meant they could see past all the mud as renovations got underway!

The ceremony was held in the Mill Barn and was decorated simply with lanterns lining the aisle and small bud vases filled with flowers on the registrar table, gorgeous for an October wedding and the duskier light.

Once Craig Chapman had put the finishing touches to Carly’s hair and make up, it was then time for the bridal party to make their way to the ceremony! Carly’s Bridesmaids and all the Groomsmen were in navy and burgundy, which was just perfect for their autumnal wedding and brought Carly’s stunning beaded blush gown out beautifully!

Wedding First Dance Cornwall

A few words from the happy couple John and I both grew up within an hour of Bude and we wanted a venue that epitomised both my rural upbringing and Johns love of the countryside. Launcells Barton did just that. The amazing view from the front of the house across fields and fields of Cornish countryside was the first thing that struck us as we pulled up for our first viewing. The Farm House and the surrounding Barns were also beautifully renovated but still in keeping with its farming history. On the day Lara and Matt were the perfect hosts, allowing us enough space to conduct our Wedding just how we had imagined it; but never be too far away if we needed help and assistance. The planning and timing on the day was perfect and it made such a difference having Lara on hand to make sure we didn’t miss a thing. We wouldn’t have changed one single thing about the entire weekend.

Congratulations to John and Carly, we wish you every happiness in your married
life together!

Friends and Family travel from across the pond, for a stunning September wedding In Cornwall

Back in September we saw Allison and James become man and wife, but it certainly wasn’t an easy ride for them to get there! Allison is originally from Florida in America and met James while exploring London with a view to stay and work in London for a bit and then return home. The couple fell in love and it wasn’t soon until James popped the question!

Exclusive Wedding Venue Cornwall

With James having family with a home in Bude and the couple holidaying in Bude often, they decided to visit Launcells Barton, but with a view to rule out Cornwall as being too far away for their international guests to travel, unfortunately James and Allison were able to see past all the building works going on at the time and decided they didn’t want it anywhere else!

Wedding Venues Cornwall

Soon after deciding on their wedding venue and their wedding plans starting to take shape, Allison received a letter to say that her new job had ticked the wrong box on her work visa and was ordered to leave the country within 14 days!! Allison now not only had the task of trying to get back into the UK, but also planning a wedding – that she hoped would still go ahead- from afar! James and his sister Sophia visited after the new Reception Barn was completed and we sent video tours and images back to Allison so that she could see everything and not feel a million miles away! After getting lawyers involved and a lot of stress, Allison was finally able to fly back to the UK and continue organising everything for the wedding. With the couple choosing to marry in St Swithin’s Church and not living in the parish, they had to complete a 10 day residency within the Parish in order to be allowed to get married at the Church. Not being able to find any accommodation at short notice, they decided to camp one night ended up barricading themselves in from the 100’s of slugs that had decided to descend on them!  They say the first year of marriage is the hardest, but I think after what these two have been through in the first six months of their engagement, it will be a walk in the park!

Allison is actually an event planner herself and I have to say she was a dream to work with! All the T’s were crossed and I’s dotted and not a single detail was missed! James is a surgeon in London and, although the profession is not normally known for excel skills, he had all 20 spreadsheets that Allison had asked him to organise down perfectly!

Alison got ready in the house with all her friends and family surrounding her.  Meanwhile, James organised a surf in Bude before getting ready with his family and groomsmen. They even took a stroll along the beach to settle their nerves!

The barn was filled with stunning autumnal deep reds and foliage, with gold vases and candles lining the trestle tables. Bleujen provided amazing flower installations that hung from the beams. Allison and James even gave each guest a personalised conversation starter, by putting a question on each place card that they could ask the person opposite!

A Few Words From Alison- “Every bride dreams up the perfect wedding day and looking back, that is just what we had! There isn’t one thing I would change about our special day, and so much of that comes down to the venue and incredible atmosphere set by Matt, Lara, and the team at Launcells. Despite living in London and organising guests from all over the world, the planning was made easy and fun as we partnered with Matt and Lara, who became instant friends. Launcells has all the amenities of a high-end wedding site, and yet maintains the relaxed, family-feel of Cornwall that we so desired. I loved being able to put our own touches on the wedding, bringing to life all of those Pinterest-worthy ideas I had gathered! Above all, the day was made perfect by having all our friends and family in one place to celebrate with us. As James and I rushed off to snag that dreamy sunset photo (made possible by Lara’s expert timing!), we looked back and saw our  guests laughing, chatting, and making forever memories on a gloriously sunny Cornish day. Kids ran alongside the tractor cheering us on and we took in the beauty of our favourite day, just before dancing the night away with all of our favourite people. To put it simply, it was the best day ever”

Lisa Webb traveled from Shropshire to capture Allison and James’ special day. I think we can all agree that she caught the day perfectly with these stunning images of not only the couple, but all their friends and family that enjoyed the day with them too!

James and Alison’s day was as an absolute pleasure to be a part of, it was like witnessing 2 friends getting married and all their friends and family were just so welcoming! We may or may not have been up, until the early hours having a few drinks with the Brides American family! We could not wish you both enough love and happiness for the future and we’re sure that we will see you soon, when you escape for a break to the coast!

Wonderfully unique, relaxed Wedding in Cornwall

Where do I start with Ben and Nicol’s wedding! It was fun filled and relaxed from start to finish and all of us at Launcells found it an absolute joy to be a part of!

Barn Wedding Ceremony

Ben & Nicol got engaged while on holiday in Bude last year and knew that they wanted to have their wedding at the place that held a special place in both their hearts! It wasn’t always plain sailing for the couple though, as Ben had to be quite persistent with his wooing of Nicol, until she finally agreed to “give it a try” and when Nicol got wind that Ben was going to propose a couple of weeks before the real thing, she said “oh no you’re not going to ask me to marry you are you?!” Luckily she said yes, when he officially popped the question!

Barn Wedding Cornwall

The couple arrived the day before to set up for their ceremony and wedding breakfast, but then snuck off with a few close friends and family to have their legal ceremony in the garden. Ben and Nicol wanted their close friend to conduct the ceremony that all their guests would come to, as they wanted it to be really relaxed and personal. Upon hearing their plans when first meeting them a year before, I have to say I was a bit intrigued as to how this was going to work!

The next morning, although the mizzle of rain had set in, the joy and excitement felt from everyone, certainly was shining through! Nicol couldn’t have been more laid back as she got ready with her friends and family around her. Nicol had given her bridesmaids one simple instruction, find something in a grey tone that you like and feel comfortable in! They looked beautiful in all different dresses and complimented the laid back feel perfectly!

Bleujen popped in on the morning of the wedding with the bouquets and to put the finsihing touches to the tables, while Hannah Woodgates Hair Design gave Nicol her effortless look!

I shouldn’t have been concerned at all over their friend conducting their ceremony! Being part of the Magic Circle, Joe was in his element in front of a crowd and was hilariously funny, yet sentimental! I can honestly say I haven’t cried in a ceremony so much! Not only from the laughing, but also through seeing just how much love they have for one another! After giving Ben a sandwich mid ceremony -Nicol was aware he hadn’t eaten for at least half an hour!-  Nicol made her vows to Ben and when all the guests from Wales stood up on her queue to sing a Welsh tribute to the Groom, I have to admit I welled up! Nicol had expressly said no Welsh Choral songs, but wanted to show she loved him enough to give in!

A few words from the happy couple-   “We got engaged near Bude and had this romantic idea about having our wedding nearby, forcing our friends and family to trek from afar down to the Cornish coast. After looking at six or seven venues, none quite hitting the mark – all too ‘weddingy’ – we stumbled upon Launcell’s for our last appointment before giving up and resigning to a venue closer to home. We didn’t make it out the car before we made our minds up; it was perfect. Rustic but not too rustic, wedding appropriate but not just another ‘wedding barn’, secluded without being too remote. Then we met Lara and Matt and the deal was done. So helpful without being pushy, relaxed while meticulously organised. Our wedding day was such fun. We didn’t want anything too traditional or formal. We wanted something personal and unique to us; Launcell’s Barton was the perfect venue to do just that.” 

We wish you every happiness in the world Ben & Nicol! It was such a pleasure getting to know you both and we loved witnessing the 2 of you become husband and wife in your wonderfully unique way! It was such a fun day and you could feel how much you meant to everyone there! Congratulations again!

A bit of rain couldn’t dampen this fun filled Wedding in Cornwall!

Back in June saw the wedding of Beth and Sean and although it was a drizzly day, it definitely didn’t stop the couple and all their guests smiling, having fun and partying into the night!Wedding Venues Cornwall

Beth and Sean first met at Liverpool University and hit it off straight away with their shared love of adventure and travelling. Beth is now a GP working just outside Plymouth while Sean works as an anaesthetist at Derriford Hospital. The couple still take every opportunity to get out and surf when ever they can! They have even converted a van into a camper van, so they can pack up their surfboards and drive off for a few days, whenever they get chance! This is no ordinary van though, but one where the bride has thought carefully about all the essentials they may need on their travels, like matching curtains, cushions and even a spice rack! They have made it into their little home away from home for trips away just the 2 of them, where they don’t have to worry about the stresses of their day jobs and I loved it!

Wedding Camper Van

On the morning of their wedding Beth and her friends and family got ready in the house, with hair and make up by Blush Bridal, while the groom and his ushers got ready at a near by hotel, before arriving to take care of the final details in the morning.

Beth looked beautiful in a lace ballgown with illusion neckline and it was an emotional moment to see just how much this meant to her Father when he saw her for the first time in her dress. When helping Beth with some set up bits the day before, Beth had explained about loosing her Mother when she was younger and how she was having photos of her and around the venue, so she could still be a part of her special day. It was so touching to hear, that I could do nothing more than give her a big hug as we both welled up.

There really was a lot of thought and time that had gone in to every detail of their day. With family members making yards and yards of bunting and personalised momentums adding special sentiment to the day.

Beth and Sean had infused their personal touches throughout the whole day with giant Jenga blocks, where guests were encouraged to write advice on married life on the blocks, the signing tree where guests built up the tree with their finger prints and the surfboard which displayed the seating plan, which had been handmade by the groom!

The happy couple then took some time out just the two of them with their photographer while their band set up. Travers and Brown, one of our recommended photographers was back for his second wedding with us and we absolutely love working with him. Not only is his work stylish, yet natural, but he is such fun on the day and as cool as a cucumber, making sure he gets the perfect shot and catching those fantastic “of guard moments”

Andrew ( Travers & Brown) “One of the great things about Launcells Barton from a photographers point of view is the number of great locations available within and around the venue. From the house to the Mill barn and the top field to the tree lined lane, there’s plenty of opportunity for great shots. On this particular occasion the weather wasn’t ideal but I was still able to shoot the couple portraits in the house and the Mill barn”

It was such a fun wedding , I think Matt and I may even have partaken in a shot or two with the wedding party at the bar too! ….. Well you can’t say no can you!

We wish Bethany and Sean every happiness for the future as they start married life together, we’re sure it will be adventure filled, travelling all over in their home away from home! We also want to thank them for trusting in our plans for the farm and not running a mile when seeing the muddy crater for the first time! 

A few words from the happy coupleWe had looked at many wedding venues before we came across Launcells Barton. After the first viewing we both knew this venue would be perfect for us! Although the Events Barn was a muddy hole at the time of our booking we completely trusted their vision. Their hard work and obvious passion for the family farm was clear to see throughout the house and the Mill Barn.
The day itself was amazing! Lara and Matt worked hard behind the scenes, which made our day run smoothly. Even though we had the appearance of some typical Cornwall ‘Mizzle’ during the big day this did not dampen any spirits, as there was so much beautiful indoor space to accommodate all of our guests.
 We would highly recommend this beautiful venue. Thank you for all your hard work we are still on cloud nine.”
