“The whole planning process was a breeze with Lara on hand to answer all our questions.”
” 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”

“Thank you just doesn’t seem to cover it but we are so grateful and thankful we found you and Launcells Barton”
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.
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.

“Would do it all again in a heartbeat”
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. 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! 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!
” It’s so difficult to put into words just how
wonderful our day was”
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.
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. 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!
Throughout the day Lara, Matt and their team behind the scenes made sure that everything ran smoothly. Thank you 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!

“To put it simply, it was the best day ever”
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.

“We instantly fell in love with Launcells Barton”
We really could not have found a more stunning venue for our Wedding! We instantly fell in love with Launcells Barton when we came to visit in January 2016 and have really enjoyed seeing it transform over the past year and a half.
Thanks again for all of your help leading up to and on our wedding day. It was a pleasure meeting and getting to know the both of you. You were absolutely amazing from the moment we first met and helped everything run so smoothly, nothing was ever too much trouble. It really was just perfect and how lucky were we with the sunshine!! We really couldn’t have been happier honestly it was all perfect and so many people have said to us it’s the best wedding they have been to as it was all just so relaxed & that’s exactly how we wanted it.

“Warm, welcoming, friendly, helpful and so filled with vision and motivation”
We had a tour, spent ages just chatting with Lara and Matt, and left knowing that we wanted to have our wedding there. They are a wonderful partnership. Warm, welcoming, friendly, helpful and so filled with vision and motivation that we trusted them one hundred percent to create what is now a gorgeous wedding venue.
Having the venue for the weekend, and having so much room to accommodate family and treat it as our home made the whole event magical. Nothing was too much trouble, and we were kept in the loop the whole time. Lara’s recommendations and advice helped with the planning immensely.
They have created a beautiful, rustic, natural setting packed full of old Cornish charm and we absolutely loved it. I am sad that we no longer have a reason to follow the progress of this fabulous place, we wish them all the best success for the future and cannot thank them enough for making our day so special. My only complaint is that it went too fast… Can we do it again please?

“Launcell’s Barton was the perfect venue”
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 are still on cloud nine”
We 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.

“Our guests were all blown away”
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.

“More than perfect”
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

“Fabulous service and striking setting”
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 advise 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.
