Real Weddings

The Couple

Tell us a little about how you met

Our eyes met across a crowded London bar one Friday evening where we shared a love for cheesy music and terrible dancing.

Talk us through the proposal

Ann: We celebrated our three-year anniversary of that fateful Friday evening in a restaurant at the top of the Shard in London when Ben (very unexpectedly!) slid a ring across the table. It most definitely took some time to realise it was a proposal! I soon knew that most of the staff had been tipped off and were eagerly waiting for it!


The Setting


St Mary’s Church, Ahoghill.


The Great Hall.

Why Galgorm Resort and Spa

We were impressed with the setting of the Resort and the opulence of The Great Hall. 

What made you choose a Resort Location?

It worked for us having friends and family coming from many locations to be able to accommodate guests and, being based in London, it helped to have a wedding planner co-ordinating and arranging the itinerary and events for the day. 

Tell us the most memorable part of your day

Seeing all our family and friends together and having fun celebrating our special day with us.

Advice for future couples

Enjoy every minute of your big day, you’ll never believe how quickly it goes; relax and allow the staff to take care of the finer details for you.
