Laura & Daniel's Wedding
Tell us a little about how you met
Dan and I met when we were really young - I was 15 and he was 17, so you could definitely say we were childhood sweethearts! We've been together ten years now.
Talk us through the proposal
Dan took me to a beautiful hotel in Cork to celebrate our seven-year anniversary together. On Saturday night, he insisted that we stayed downstairs in the bar until 12 am to toast our anniversary (which was officially on Sunday). Then a couple of minutes before 12, he decided otherwise and said to go back to the room. We walked up the staircase towards our room and he asked me what time it was' when I told him it was officially our anniversary, I looked up and he was down on one knee at the top of the staircase. It was the most romantic thing I've ever experienced and definitely a moment I'll never forget.

Why Galgorm Spa & Golf Resort
From the moment we stepped foot in it, we fell in love with it. We always knew it would be a dream come true to have our wedding in such a stunning venue and we feel so lucky that it happened!
What made you choose a Resort location
We loved how organised everything was and how it was so efficient for our families to be all together in one place, for the day of the wedding and the day after. There was such attention to detail, we couldn't fault it.
Tell us the most memorable part of your day
Every single moment of it. We couldn't just pick one! Every memory of the day is so special to us. We did absolutely love looking down from the top table and seeing all of our family and friends being there for us, though.
Advice for future couples
Definitely take a little bit of time for yourselves on the day. Even if it's just for ten minutes to breathe and enjoy the moment of being newlyweds because the day goes by so quickly. Also - don't sweat the small stuff! It won't mean anything on the day and your Wedding Planner will have everything done to perfection.
