We’d been to look at other venues over Cornwall but there was something special about Launcells barton as soon as we pulled up in front of the house. The more we explored the grounds we just fell more in love with it. Lara initially showed us around and Maddie took care of us on the lead up to the day and was absolutely incredible. Anything we needed she had the answer or suggestions. On the day it couldn’t have gone smoother.. Maddie was everywhere we needed her to be covering our every needs… running back and forth from the house to the mill barn collecting buttonholes, mobile phones, everything we needed - we cannot thank her enough!! The attention to detail is fantastic and all the small things you wouldn’t think about but just make the day run that much smoother we’re covered! Thank you so so much!! :) GET MARRIED AT LAUNCELLS!!

The most perfect venue for the most incredible day of our lives!
There actually aren't enough words to explain how we feel about Launcells Barton and our wedding day! This was the very first venue we looked at and from that moment, we knew we had found something special. The other venues we saw the following day just did not compare to how we felt whilst walking around. The feeling of warmth, love, history and beauty we got whilst walking around the venue- we just knew this was where we were going to getting married. It was beyond perfect in every sense and everything we had been searching for in one. The whole lead up to the wedding was faultless; Maddie and Lara kept the whole process in perfect order and we had absolutely full trust in them and their experience - for us it was all pretty simple and stress free! From start to finish, our wedding day was just the most fun ever- we had no stress, no worries; Lara, Maddie and the team just took complete control which allowed us to just enjoy every single moment and we are so incredible grateful for that! There is absolutely nothing we would change- for us it was complete perfection. Our guests had the most incredible day, everyone commented on how stunning the venue was and how it was so "us". Launcells Barton will forever have the most special place in our hearts.

On the day we were taken care of so well!
Our wedding day was just incredible! The Launcells team looked after us so well and we can’t thank them enough. We were originally getting married in 2020 but had to postpone due to COVID. Lara and Maddie made this process completely seamless, even during what was a hard time for their business. We planned our wedding from Scotland which had its challenges but once again Lara and Maddie were wonderfully helpful. We’re incredibly grateful for all their support in making our day so special. We and our guests were made to feel so welcome and felt at home in the beautiful house and grounds. Having access to the barns to set everything up the afternoon before and to stay in the Manor House were fantastic features of the Launcells wedding package that helped take a lot of stress out of the preparation. On the day we were taken care of so well, the whole team looked after us and our guests with graceful professionalism. Our guests couldn’t have praised the team and venue any more for the experience they helped create on the big day. Our wedding day was exactly as we imagined as we and our guests were able to relax, enjoy ourselves and have so much fun dancing the night away. We’d highly recommend Launcells Barton to anyone considering it for their wedding We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that we might get to go back as guests for another wedding in the future”

It really felt like magic!
We were so happy that we found Launcells Barton to be our wedding venue. Being from Cornwall, it was important to me that we got married in my home county, somewhere that felt really special. We fell in love with the cosy spaces at Launcells and wanted a natural, relaxed wedding. We feel really lucky to have had the most beautiful day and are fortunate that we didn’t have to cancel or postpone like many others, although after nervously planning a wedding over two years, we’re so glad it went ahead! Thank you to Maddie who was always so helpful and was always at the end of an email if we needed! The team on the day were also amazing and really cared about ensuring our day was everything we wanted it to be! It really felt like magic.

Everyone we dealt with were just SO kind and helpful...
Launcells looked lovely online and we were excited to go visit but it wasn’t on our definitely list (for some strange reason) – but when we got there it just won us over. The pictures, as beautiful as they are, just don’t do it justice. We can’t quite put our finger on it, but Launcells is just magic, it had our hearts from our first visit. We got back in the car afterwards and both said – WOW – that was incredible. For the rest of our trip, going to the venues we had our hearts set on just didn’t measure up, we found ourselves comparing every other venue to Launcells. The atmosphere is warm and homely whilst also being luxurious and honestly just everything you could ever want from a Wedding venue. Everyone we dealt with were just SO kind and helpful, during what was an awful time for everyone. The day we actually got married in 2020 with just a few family and friends was so wonderful, we hired the venue for just 2 hours so that we could have the ceremony and some bubbles & photos afterwards and somehow in that very short window of time Lara made it so special for us. There was no décor, no flowers, no ‘fluff’ but we realised you don’t need it in such a gorgeous setting. After that we were just super excited to have our ‘Big’ day there the following year with the rest of our family and friends. And when we finally got to experience Launcells how Lara & Matt intended it, it was just amazing. All the little touches in the house made such a difference and brought it up to another level entirely. BEST WEDDING VENUE EVER! We love you guys

Those 3 days in July 2021 at Launcells Barton were the best days of my life!
So how did two Brummies end up in Cornwall? Our original plan was Portugal as that is where my mum’s family come from, this was proving to be tricky but we wanted the beach and holiday feel. It couldn’t have fallen better, with our guests making their way down to beautiful Bude for a week with a wedding in the middle of their holiday! It meant we had pre-parties, after-parties and actually spent quality time with our friends and family. I will never forget that crisp Autumnal day in October 2018 driving up the winding roads to Launcells – the first and only venue we looked at. It was breath taking and immediately we fell in love with everything about it. Meeting Lara sealed the deal for us – she was funny, kind, knowledgeable and understanding. She made us feel totally relaxed and we could envisage our wedding taking place at this extraordinary venue. The exclusivity of it was also a huge selling point to us – being able to really make it our home over the 2-3 days and having our wedding party stay with us in the most magnificent period house. Those 3 days in July 2021 at Launcells Barton were the best days of my life so far! Every part of our day played out better than expected – and this was smoothly executed by Maddie & the Launcells team working during the wedding. They were professional, good humoured and had a smile on their face all day. All of our guests commented on how brilliant every single person working was. Lara and then Maddie, were on board with our vision from the very beginning – relaxed day time vibes, good humour, personal touches and a lively party. We can’t thank them enough for all their organisation, love and support since that first meeting in 2018. We cannot recommend Lara, Matt, Maddie & the team highly enough. All of our suppliers were equally as magnificent in bringing our vision together. Thank you!”

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Make sure you take some time together during the day, you will be so busy speaking to family and friends, that sometimes couples don't see much of each other and at the end of the day its about the two of you! Whether you put on your wellies and go for a walk or you hop on the back on our tractor you can see some spectacular views across the Cornish Countryside and even watch the sun setting across the sea!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We had a wedding where the couples seating plan, was based on their favourite beaches from their travels! I love all the personal touches as that's what makes the day so special.
