Quite simply the best day of our lives
From the minute we set eyes on Launcells Barton, we knew that we were going to get married there. Bude and Widemouth Bay have a special place in both mine and my husband’s hearts, so when we found a place that ticked every single box (and other boxes we didn’t knew existed!!) in the most perfect location, we knew it was meant to be. The fact that St Swithin’s Church was located next door to the venue made it even more perfect, as it meant a lot to us to get married in a church. From start to finish, Lara, Maddie and the rest of the Launcells Barton team went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect day. These guys are pros to say the least! No question was too big or too small and no problem was too hard to fix. All of their recommended suppliers we used were beyond exceptional and Bude is so lucky to have so much talent in the wedding industry. The communication throughout was excellent and every little hint and tip from Lara and co was invaluable and made for a very smooth day. On the day itself, we had so many comments about the friendly, efficient staff and the amazing venue. Because of the seamless organisation and on the day coordination, both myself and my husband felt we could really enjoy the day and spend time with our guests! But the best part was that it felt like Lara & Maddie were our own guests and friends, which I think says it all! Thank you for giving us the best day of our lives and creating a day far beyond our wildest dreams!!!!

The Copp Wedding
Quite literally the best day of our lives! From start to finish the wedding experience at Launcells Barton was fantastic. The communication and support given throughout the process was brilliant and helped us to plan our perfect day. Maddie was amazing on the day, everything ran smoothly even when the heavens opened and everything had to be moved inside, as a bride I was completely unaware of how stressful this must have been as Maddie just came over with a smile and calmly led me over to the barn. Nothing was too much trouble and we didn't have to do a thing on the day accept enjoy ourselves! The venue and grounds are absolutely stunning and we fell in love with it from the moment we saw it. All our guests commented on how beautiful the venue is. I highly recommend choosing Launcells Barton as your wedding venue, especially if you are looking for somewhere that listens to your vision and supports you in creating your dream wedding. 🤍

A venue like no other
Words cannot describe how wonderful Launcells Barton and the entire team were on our wedding day, and even the built up to our wedding day. We were blown away with the attention to detail, organisation and sheer passion and love they have for their couples and what they do... That's not even to mention the stunning house and beautiful grounds! Truly a wonderful experience and we both feel incredibly lucky to have had our magical day with them. We would re-live it everyday if we could!

Perfect venue for the perfect wedding
Our daughter and future son-in-law chose Launcells Barton as their perfect choice for their wedding. My husband and I felt the same way as soon as we were shown around by the very lovely Maddie. Their wedding day was magical, made more so by the thunder and lightning as the bride and groom were saying their vows. Maddie made sure all eventualities were covered and did an incredible job on the day, we can’t thank her enough. We would certainly recommend Launcells Barton as the perfect setting for a perfect day. Would like to re-live the whole wonderful day in slow motion!

The Perfect Day
Launcells Barton was everything we could have ever hoped for in a wedding venue! From the moment we pulled up at the Manor House and had our initial show around, we knew we had to get married here! It’s in such an idyllic location with beautiful grounds and the perfect place to spend the weekend with our family and friends. Maddie was fantastic right through the whole planning process and the whole day ran seamlessly thanks to her! It really is an incredible venue and it will hold such special memories for us forever!

From the moment we met Lara 4 1/2 years ago until our wedding day last Wednesday, they have been incredible. The venue is just beautiful with stunning locations whether it's pouring with rain or streaming in sunshine. We had looked at a number of venues and nothing else came close. Lara has been a champion for the industry, her passion for not only her own business but for other suppliers is to be commended. We are so incredibly proud of her and grateful to her for standing up when others didn't. Maddie is just brilliant and together with Lara and Matt, every single need you have will be taken care of... even a quick re-arranging of the spanx is not too much trouble! You will be so well looked after and in our opinion you could not pick a better place to spend the happiest day of your life. We are still smiling and will be forever grateful that we chose Launcell's Barton.

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.
