Wedding venue near Bude named as one of the SW’s best

A Cornish wedding venue is celebrating after being named as one of the best places to get married in the entire South West of England.


Launcells Barton, near Bude, was named as one of the best countryside wedding venues in the region at The Wedding Industry Awards held in Cheltenham last week, having beaten off stiff competition from 11 shortlisted venues from across the South West region after many more applied. The venue was awarded “Highly Commended” after initially tying with the eventual winner, before another level of judging took place to split them.

The awards, seen as one of the most prestigious in the industry, are voted for by couples who have gotten married in the last year, bring together wedding industry suppliers from across the South West and recognise the very best in delivering the ultimate experience for couples on their big day. Couples who get married can rate a venue or service out of 10 on an array of questions. The venues with the highest scores are then put through to a panel of expert judges.


Lara Gill, co-owner of Launcells Barton with Matthew Stokes, said: “We’re incredibly honoured to have been recognised at the awards and it means a lot to the team here as they’re voted for by couples that have experienced our venue and who have seen all of the work that we put into making sure that every detail of their day is perfect.”


The commendation marks another step in the journey for Launcells Barton, which was only converted into a countryside wedding venue in 2016 and now attracts brides from across the country and as far afield as Australia.


Lara added “Launcells Barton is a really special place for us and it’s great to be able to share that with couples on one of the most special days of their lives, no matter how far they’ve travelled to be with us!”
