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!

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

We’ve known 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!

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!

Mark and all their guests made their way to St Swithin’s 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!

After their ceremony the happy couple were welcomed by a cascade of confetti as they made their way back up to Launcells Barton for their welcome drinks reception, where their band were playing as guests arrived.

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. The newlyweds were beaming as we announced them in for their meal, which was catered by the amazing Woodfired Kitchen.

After their speeches everyone mingled outside as the band got set up ready for the party to begin!

Everyone celebrated with Mark and Lucia as they cut their cake and enjoyed their first dance together, before everyone was welcomed to join the newlyweds on the dance floor! Mark and Lucia then took a bit of time together to take it all in and made the most of the incredible sunset!

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!

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…

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!

Our reception barn

Our reception barn has been purpose built to give you the ultimate place in which to share memories with friends and family on your big day.  The barn has been carefully crafted to compliment the surrounding buildings and countryside, whilst also giving you, your caterers and evening entertainment a state-of-the-art space to call your own.

It doesn’t end there either! As well as a spacious bar and lounge area with a cosy atmosphere and comfy leather sofas, the Reception Barn has lots of outdoor seating and a large lawn where your guests can mingle; great for summer evenings!

A blank canvas

Both of our barns give our couples a complete blank canvas to really make their own; take inspiration from some of our previous weddings, put your ideas in place and create the wedding you’ve always wanted and dreamt of!

For more information on our exclusive use barn weddings in Cornwall please give us a call on 01288 352352 or email us on hello@launcellsbarton.co.uk and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have or arrange a viewing for you.

Launcells Barton is our pride and joy, and our passion shines through each and every wedding we hold here. The most important thing to us is making sure we create weddings to remember and incredible memories to last a lifetime.

That’s why we absolutely love it when we hear the wonderful feedback from our happy couples who chose to share one of the most special days of their lives with us. Who better to describe a wedding day here at Launcells Barton than those that have experienced it for themselves?

Here are just a few kind words from some of our recent newlyweds…

“There were so many reasons why we fell in love with Launcells Barton as a venue; the location, the beautiful house, the rustic snug bar, but not least Lara and Matt who were brilliant, laid back and reassuring throughout.  We didn’t have lots of ideas for our wedding before we started planning, but most important to us was that it was fun and relaxed. Dancing with my nieces to James Dixon’s incredible music, and drinking prosecco in the October sunshine will be a lasting memory!”
– Annie & Ben


“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!”
– Katie & Charlie


“We fell in love with Launcells Barton from the moment we visited, and it was the most confident choice we made for our wedding together. We cannot thank Lara & Matt enough, it was the best day!”
– Sophie & Chris


“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….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.”
– Karen and Justin


”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”
– Sophia & David


“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.”
– Duncan and Tor

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 we enter the final countdown to the Royal wedding we thought it would be a great time to think of a few ways you can ensure that you’re treated like royalty on your own big day.

Harry and Meghan have certainly made their day their own; they’ve broken from tradition to invite 1,000 members of the public, they’re the first royal wedding not to serve a fruitcake and are also tying the knot on a Saturday rather than a week day, so what special touches can you treat yourselves to?

A venue steeped in history or a modern feel?

The choice of venue is of course one of the biggest decisions you’ll make when you’re planning your wedding. Harry and Meghan will be having their nuptials in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle which is steeped in Royal history, so if you’re looking for your own slice of history we’re lucky to have St Swithin’s Church, famously referred to as ‘the least spoilt church in Cornwall’ by Sir John Betjeman, a literal stone’s throw from our venue. You can also enjoy your wedding weekend in our Manor House, which is referred to in the Domesday Book of 1086!

Fancy adopting some of Harry and Meghan’s more modern ideas? Our brand new, purpose-built reception barn has been designed to complement the original house and is able to fit up to 180 guests on round tables or 200 on trestles. This space gives our couples complete flexibility to decorate and make the space their own. It doesn’t stop their either! Our converted 19th century Mill Barn which is built from stone offers even more chances for you to make your day your own and can seat up to 160.

Invited by your majesty

Harry and Meghan’s invitations were made by London-based fine printers ‘Barnard and Westwood’ who’ve been creating invitations for the royal family since 1985. Their invite differs to William and Kate’s as it bares the crest of Prince Charles rather than the Queen, from whom all previous invites have been sent.

Your own invites will be the first chance for you to share the style of your wedding; will you go modern or traditional? The great news is that Devon and Cornwall are both full of fantastic designers – there’s something to meet everyone’s chosen style.

Fancy florals

Back in March, Kensington Palace announced that Harry and Meghan had chosen Philippa Craddock to create the floral design for their wedding, both for the ceremony at St. George’s Chapel and the reception at Windsor Castle. Choosing flowers and designs won’t be something most of us do on a daily basis, so we’re always happy to give you ideas and suggestions and put you in touch with the best suppliers we know locally.

A classical choice of music

Whilst it’s rumored that Elton John is set to play at the Royal Wedding, one musician not gaining as many headlines is 19-year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason who will also be amongst the day’s performers. Classical music can give your ceremony a real air of elegance and with a great selection of classical musicians and string quartets blessing the West Country it could be an option to explore if you’ve not considered it before.

A show stopping cake

Traditionally royal wedding cakes make a real statement, boasting multiple tiers adorned with intricate sugar work. Whilst we’re not advising you copy Prince Charles and Camilla in terms of size (theirs weighed an impressive 17 stone and took around 130 hours to decorate), you’ll definitely want it to be every bit as tasty, so if you’re wanting some recommendations on who to go with we’ve been lucky enough to sample some fantastic cakes from local suppliers and always happy to let you have our recommendations.

We put an incredible amount of effort and passion into each and every wedding we hold at Launcells Barton, so it’s always humbling to hear some of the feedback we receive from the couples that choose to share one of the most special days of their lives with us. There’s no better way to describe a wedding day at Launcells Barton than from the people that have experienced it themselves, so here are just a few kind words from those that have…

“What a place! Just beautiful. We had THE best winter wedding here. Thank you Lara and Matt for helping to make our day so special. I wish words could describe just how wonderful our day was. Whatever your vision for your wedding, I’m pretty sure you can achieve it here. It’s beautiful, flexible and Lara and Matt will do everything to make your day as carefree and memorable as possible. Thank you! xx”
– Alisa Horton

“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 Launcells 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; Launcells Barton was the perfect venue to do just that.”
– Ben and Nicole

“Thank you so much for allowing us into your home for our wedding day. Launcells Barton was such a beautiful setting for the day and our guests were all blown away by it and said how much of a great time they had there. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. Thanks for helping it run so smoothly.”
– Jess and Matt

We absolutely love receiving wonderful testimonials from our newlyweds as the most important thing to us is making sure we create weddings to remember, and memories to last a lifetime. We always strive to pull out all of the stops in an effort to make you look back at yours and fondly think ‘that was the most incredible day our lives!’

Launcells Barton is our pride and joy and we know that should you choose to be married at our exclusive hire venue, you won’t regret it! You can read more about our unique qualities in this recent blog post. But don’t just take our word for it, have a read of these testimonials from some of our recent couples who have felt compelled to share their stories and kind words…

“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. 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. Lara, Matt and Alannah coordinated and supported us through the day perfectly! 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. 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!”
– Charlotte and Dan

“We fell in love with Launcells Barton at our first viewing. The owners, Matthew and Lara, have put so much love and effort into creating the most perfect of wedding venues. Relaxed, yet efficient, they put you at ease with their willingness to please and friendly can-do attitude. Nothing is too much trouble and they are on hand to help and advice from the day you book, right up to your wedding day. Throughout the actual day, Matthew and Lara made sure that all aspects ran smoothly with no disruption to ourselves or our guests. Lara even got soaked helping me into the car whilst it was raining so that my dress and I stayed dry. It’s been almost a month now since our wedding and we’re still receiving comments from our friends and family complimenting Launcells Barton on their fabulous service and striking setting. We really did have the best weekend, above and beyond all our expectations.”
– Kate and Geoff

“Thank you again for such a magical wedding, the day went perfectly thanks to you, Matt and all involved. Still can’t get over it!! We knew how hard you were working and everything turned out perfectly, more than perfect, completely better than any expectations.”
– Lizzie and Tom

Last November we worked with Cathy from Boelle Events on a vision she had, to bring in rich and earthy tones to a bohemian theme! She wanted to go back to her Cornish roots and make the most of what this beautiful part of the country has to offer!

CATHY FROM BOELLE EVENTS TELLS US MORE ABOUT THE SHOOT

For this look, I wanted to go back to my Cornish roots and explore an organic, earthy and wintery theme. When I came across Launcells Barton in Bude, I was instantly drawn to it’s raw and rustic features and knew I had to style there! The barns, beams and exposed brickwork were perfect for my rich and bohemian vision. Not forgetting the beautiful house and gardens!

For the styling, I wanted to work with a deep pallet of burgundy’s, navys and golds lifted by a hint of blush and oodles of greenery. I believe in working with the seasons, from colours and accessories to seasonal fresh flowers. The colour pallet came from inspiration of autumnal colours mixed with wintery and seasonal golds to add a hint of festivities. Because each of my styles is unique, I hand dye all my fabrics so I can achieve seasonal colours. For the ‘Cornish Winter’ runner I dyed organic, unbleached cheesecloth with beetroot and red cabbage inspired chemical free dye to create the rich burgundy colour. The perfect base for golds and greens to sit elegantly on a rustic and upcycled oak trestle table. To add a bohemian flair, I incorporated macrame and a wicker peacock chair.

If you’re currently searching for an idyllic countryside setting to host your wedding, then look no further than our lovingly restored exclusive-use venue which sits in a secluded spot on the Devon & Cornwall border and is perfectly placed for couples based in the region or wanting to escape to the South West for their dream day.

Let’s tell you about a few of the reasons you’ll want to spend your special day with us…

Our beautiful buildings

As a venue we’re very flexible as we have a number of buildings, each with their own qualities; no two wedding days are ever the same here!

Charm and history in our Manor House

The Manor House is made up of two halves; the older half dates back to the 14th century and retains a number of charming, historical features throughout, whilst the newer half is classically Georgian. The Bridal Suite is nestled on the far side of the house, an elegant space perfect for preparing for your wedding day and then spending your first night together as a married couple! You may also have your nearest and dearest stay with you in the house thanks to its further five bedrooms and large communal kitchen.

Original stonework features and exposed beams in Mill Barn

The Mill Barn is a converted 19th century stone building and retains a number of original stone work features. Along with exposed beams and large French doors, it is a popular ceremony spot for our couples. It’s the perfect blank canvas for you to decorate as you wish and bring your ideas to life.

A purpose-built reception barn

Our purpose-built Reception Barn has been designed to complement the house and is a state-of-the-art space for your wedding. It has capacity for 160 guests on round tables or up to 200 on trestles. You’ll be pleased to hear there’s also a spacious bar and lounge area, and large lawn for mingling and playing games in the warmer months!

A special setting

We are set within 200 acres of peaceful wooded countryside, situated under an hour’s drive from Exeter and very close to the picturesque seaside town of Bude. Everywhere you look there are breathtaking, countryside views, and if you walk up to the very top of the site you can even see the sea! If you would like to have a band outside or other entertainment our grounds are very spacious so nearly anything is possible; we’re flexible and open to your creative ideas.

A romantic Church

Close to our site you will find the Parish Church of St Swithian’s which dates back to the late 15th Century. If getting married in a Church is something important to you both, we promise this will not disappoint as it’s been famously described as the ‘least spoilt Church in Cornwall’.

Why would you want to be married here?

It would probably be easier to tell you why not! The benefits of spending your wedding day at Launcells Barton really are endless. Of course the most obvious is being an exclusive-use venue; you can personalise everything as much as you would like, you won’t be joined by anyone but your loved ones and you’ll always be top priority. When you come for a visit, we’re sure like many couples before you you will feel the romance and get butterflies!
