In September last year, Erica and Elliot tied the knot in the Mill Barn and danced their way down the aisle as their guests cheered them on!

There are moments at every wedding where you feel so privileged to be a part of someone’s special day. One of those moments is witnessing the pride and love that the Bride’s family feel when they see her for the first time.

Another one of those moments is as I walk the Bride to the ceremony. It’s usually a very emotional time and one where the Bride can become a bit overwhelmed by what’s about to happen, but we normally find ourselves talking absolute rubbish and laughing and joking about something totally irrelevant and, by the time we get to the ceremony, all the anxiety has gone and excitement has taken over.

As Erica and her Father made their way down the aisle, Elliot waited excitedly for his beautiful Bride. They made their ceremony so personal with songs that have special meanings for their signing of the register and personal vows to one another.

A few words from the Happy Couple-

“Launcells Barton was the most perfect venue for us, we fell in love with the place and its character from the moment we saw it. We couldn’t believe our luck to have found a venue with such charm and with the perfect setup for the day.
The moment we met Lara and Matt we knew our wedding was in safe hands, they were so lovely and passionate about their work you knew they could create and solve anything. Our day could not have been more perfect even if we tried, Lara and the team put everyone at ease and allowed us to relax and enjoy every moment knowing Lara was working tirelessly to ensure everything went to plan. We felt so privilege to have shared this wonderful day and venue with our family and friends and we felt right at home.
There is not a thing we would change about our day, it was simply the best. It is the little details that made us feel so special, like the tractor ride to the fields for the sunset and the bottle of bubbly for when everyone had gone and it was just us two!
We are so grateful for everything you did leading up to to the wedding and on the day. It was the best day of our lives and Launcells Barton was magical – a day and a place we will treasure for a lifetime. Thank you so much!” 

Congratulations to Erica and Elliot as you start your new lives together as Mr & Mrs.
We’re sure there’s lots of excitement and adventure to come in the coming years!

Back in March on a gorgeous Spring day, Laura and Simeon brought their friends and family from across Europe, together to celebrate with them in Cornwall!

Laura’s family are local to the area, while Simeon is originally from Germany. The couple met in London where they both now live and work, but wanted their special day in a part of the country that’s special to both of them.

As guests arrived for the ceremony Simeon welcomed everyone, before it was time for the Brides entrance!

Laura and Simeon had a family friend, who is also a pastor travel over from Vienna to conduct their ceremony, which had music joyously sang throughout!

After the ceremony as the sun was shinning, guests mingled outside enjoying pastries before gathering for family photos in front of the house.

As guests took their seats for their meal, which was all produced by Laura’s family farm, Laura and Simeon had a chance to catch up, just the 2 of them!

Laura and Simeons’ meal, was filled with games and laughter and was as relaxed as the 2 of them had been about planning their day. They just wanted all their loved ones with them to share these special moments, and that’s exactly what they had!

A few words from the Happy Couple-  “We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who played a part in our wedding day. The idea of wedding planning seemed daunting, but it was important to us to share this big moment in our lives with our friends and family. We are so happy that we found a beautiful venue, where we could create a chilled environment for our guests to enjoy and where we had the flexibility to design a day that we loved. Lara, Matt and the Launcells Barton team were supportive every step of the way. Knowing all was in safe hands, meant we didn’t stress at all. We are so grateful to have such a special day to look back to” 

A huge congratulations to Simeon and Laura as they settle into their new lives as a married couple! It was fantastic to meet all your guests that had traveled across Europe to share your special day with you and how welcoming they all were!

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!

Georgie got ready in the Manor house, while Rich stayed nearby, before making his way to the venue with his ushers to welcome all their guests in the snug bar as they arrived.

Georgie and her Bridesmaids made their way down the aisle in the Mill Barn to an eagerly awaiting Groom.

Everyone made their way out to the courtyard for confetti, welcome drinks and nibbles, while the fantastic, Swing Empire swing band had everyones’ toes tapping and incredible magician, Darren Campbell, amazed guests with his tricks! This was the perfect opportunity for Georgie and Rich to sneak off and steal their first moments together as Mr & Mrs!

Guests were then announced in to take their seats in the beautifully decorated Reception Barn. As always Bleujen worked their magic with greens, deep reds and candle light, bringing a romantic glamour to the barn.

After speeches, we quickly turned the barn around, to make room for their band and dance floor. The happy couple took the chance to go off for a wander around the farm, just the two of them, before joining their friends and family for their first dance!

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!

Back on a beautiful Autumnal day in September, Alex and Sarah celebrated their wedding surrounded by friends and family and brought so much of their personality and love of the countryside into their day!

The day before Sarah and Alex set to work bringing the Reception Barn to life with the help of their florist Ruby and the Wolf, who put the finishing touches to the Barn and Church in the morning of their wedding, making sure everything looked perfect. The whole barn looked magical with an incredible flower arch and tables full of candles, greenery and soft pale flowers to give simple touches. The couple also chose a backdrop behind their top table, with rustic love letters and hanging candle globes.

The morning of the wedding started with Sarah getting ready and relaxing with friends and family in the house. Hair and make up was perfected by recommended suppliers Hannah Woodgates Hair Design and Lizzy Couch Make Up. Sarah look breathtaking in a simple long sleeved dress.

Alex and his friends gathered in the Snug bar, before heading off to the church to welcome their guests.

As Sarah made her way into the church with her long train floating behind her, she looked sensational!

After the ceremony, guests made their way back to Launcells Barton for the welcome reception, with the newlyweds and their wedding party taking some time for photos, while guests enjoyed canapés and drinks.

It was then time for guests to take their seats in the Reception Barn and us to announce the happy couple through their beautiful floral arch, into their meal!

After their meal, one of Sarah’s Bridesmaids drove the happy couple to catch the sunset in her pea green Defender, which I was a little bit smitten with!

Wild Bake Pizza set up for the evening and guests mingled, before welcoming Sarah and Alex to the dance floor, for their first dance as Husband and Wife!

A few words from Sarah- “Love isn’t always perfect. It isn’t a fairy tale of story book. And it doesn’t always come easy. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define and impossible to live without. Love is work, but most of all, love is realising that every hour, every minute and every second was worth it because you did it together. Alex and I were saying ‘I do’ not just for that day, but for the tomorrow and the always that we are so fortunate to be able to share together. To all couples who are about to say I do, treasure that very previous moment and enjoy every hour, every minute and every second. Thank you Lara and Matt for all that you’ve done to support our love.” 

These beautiful images are thanks to one of our recommended suppliers Pete Cox Photography. I think his natural and soft style of photography has captured their day perfectly!

It was a privilege to be a part of your special day Sarah and Alex and see how much you both mean to one another. We wish you nothing but happiness and best wishes as you start your new life in Cornwall as Husband and Wife!

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.

Looking stunning in an off the shoulder lace gown, Katie then made her way to the Mill Barn, ready to walk down the aisle with her Bridesmaids.

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

Everyone was then welcomed outside for welcome drinks, while Katie and Charlie took a moment for it all to sink in!

Katie and Charlie were welcomed in the walled garden by their guests covering them with confetti, but at the end of the path waiting for them, was Katie’s mum who had organised a surprise release of doves, to celebrate the occasion!

The Bride and Groom mingled with guests while they enjoyed canapés, drinks and live acoustic music in the courtyard.

We then announced all their guests to make their way into the Reception Barn to take their seats for their wedding breakfast. The couple and their friends and family styled the venue the day before with simple touches and fairy lights.

While everyone was taking their seats, Katie and Charlie took the chance to go off with their photographer and have a bit of time.

It was then time to announce Katie and Charlie in to join their friends and family in the Reception Barn, for their wedding breakfast and speeches. Guess who’s coming to Dinner catered the whole day and everyone told me how fantastic the food and service was during the day!

Guests then mingled outside, while their band set up ready for the couples first dance and cutting of the cake by Claire’s Sweet Temptation! 

Katie and Charlie took a minute to themselves to take in the day, while their band “Over the Threshold” kept everyone entertained, before Katie and Charlie joined their guests again.

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!
