Real Weddings

The Couple

Tell us a little about how you met

Childhood friends for 10 years, we hung about in the same social groups and became the best of friends! 

Talk us through the proposal 

On the 19th December 2014 Christine had worked 12 hours in the salon in the busy Christmas period. We were both travelling to Amsterdam in the early hours of the morning. I had originally planned to propose in Amsterdam but I couldn’t wait any longer so I picked her up and when we arrived home I asked her to go upstairs to check my case over. She walked into champagne and roses saying marry me and her pink sapphire ring placed in the middle. She ran and locked herself in the bathroom for 20 minutes! I think she said yes! I think it’s the first time I’ve seen her speechless. 


The Setting


The Phantom House


Four Seasons Suite

Why Galgorm Resort & Spa

Christine and I have been regular visitors to Galgorm over the last four years. It was always going to be the perfect place for us to be married. We just knew and within two months we had booked our wedding! Galgorm Resort & Spa is our happy place.

What made you choose a Resort location?

Christine and I knew how comfortable ourselves, family and guests would be from parents, grandparents and children. Having everything in one place, from dining and the facilities and the grounds. Something for everyone to enjoy. 

Tell us the most memorable part of your day 

Saying our vows was the most amazing and emotional part of the day. We also did the dirty dancing lift at the reception! Pulling that off will go down in history. 

Advice for future couples

Take every minute of your day in, it goes by so quickly. With Galgorm you’re in the best of hands. Every second counts! Nothing else matters on that one day where it’s just love and celebrating with your loved ones.
