Regular readers will probably feel as though you know Launcells Barton already – a little gem of a wedding venue in beautiful Cornwall. But today I can share with you an invitation to Launcells Barton’s exclusive open day in January. You get to explore the beautiful venue, chat with the folks behind this dream wedding venue, and even have a sneak peek at their brand new events barn…

Do get in touch if you’d like to go along! The email address to book your slot is on the poster above. I only wish I could… but from the Lakes to Cornwall is just too far for my little Vespa to carry me!


There are few wedding venues so unique, characterful and charming as Launcells Barton. I’ve refused offers of blog sponsorship from the likes of One Marylebone in London simply because they don’t have that special, intimate atmosphere I fall in love with. The venues I fall head over heels for are those where you’ll instantly feel at home, welcomed and encouraged to create a wedding which reflects your personalities and charms the socks off your guests.

DIY weddings don’t get much prettier than this… and beautiful bride Rosie just happened to marry her lovely husband at one of our favourite wedding venues, the fabulous Launcells Barton in Cornwall. Safe to say then, that today’s wedding is magical inside and out…

The flowers are divine – gorgeous colours, super bright and colourful throughout the day. I love Rosie’s flowers in her hair – aren’t they pretty? The cake is spectacular, the bouquet wonderfully trailing foliage and with statement blooms to create a real talking point. The crafts are so lovely too… I adore the pretty baubles on the tree, the forget-me-not favours and sweet place settings.


My little blogging desk, as you may know, is on the edge of the Lake District. We do get sunshine, but more often we have a variety we call ‘liquid sunshine‘, and we’ve kind of learned to love a misty, drippy or downright sodden day’s adventure in the fells. So when I read that Cornwall’s loveliest wedding venue Launcells Barton had written about rain on your wedding day, I smiled. Turns out, for what sounds like a relatively tropical place to me, these Cornish wedding pros have some pretty amazing ideas for rainy wedding days! I asked if we could share their advice, and they very kindly said yes. So here are our top tips, just in case it rains on your wedding day!


Today’s real wedding, my gorgeous blog-loving friends, is spectacular. If there was a bigger word for spectacular which included amazing, beautiful, creative, artisan, and elegant, I’d be using that word. But sometimes… beauty is too big for any word. Here’s our stunning bride, Jessica. She looks incredible, doesn’t she?!

Newly launched as a wedding venue, it’s fast becoming a wedding blog favourite (with features on Rock My Wedding, Boho Weddings and of course the English Wedding Blog).
