The weather held for me this weekend and the sun shone as I played the Drinks Reception for Jenny Phipps and Damian Granlund's wedding. Jenny is one of Cornwall's top wedding planners and understandably wanted her day to run perfectly, as would any bride. Their wedding was held at a fantastic new venue, Launcell's Barton, a Grade II listed Manor House near Bude.
Combining lovingly restored historic buildings with a purpose-built Events Barn, current owners, Matthew and Lara, have successfully fused old world charm and contemporary design to create a sophisticated wedding venue with timeless appeal.
As friends of ours, it was a pleasure for myself and my wife Heather to attend Jen and Damian's weddings as guests, but particularly an honour for me to play their Drink's Reception. Jen requested that I play 'Land Down Under' by Men at Work, a personal favourite of hers and mine. We even had dancing in the courtyard - Lionel Richie never thought of that one!
