The Couple

Tell us a little about how you met

My best friends wedding....we both had a mutual friend for years but never actually met each other until her wedding party!

Talk us through the proposal

Our summer holiday in 2015 was a trip round Ireland. We visited Westport first and on our way to Galway, we took a detour into Cong where 'The Quiet Man' was filmed (my granda's favourite movie). Little did i know he had secretly booked Ashford Castle for us to stay that night! When we got there he had organised a picnic with the staff, and even though we were in our wet gear as it was raining, it was perfect. We got round to the back of the castle and sat on a bench overlooking the lough and it was there that he proposed. Completely shocked, but one of the best days of my life so far. He had thought of every little detail, even asking my mum beforehand. 

The Setting


St Marys on the Hill, Glengormley


The Four Seasons Suite

Why Galgorm Resort and Spa

We initially wanted a vintage/barn style wedding but our first visit to Galgorm changed that was we fell in love with the Four Seasons straight away

What made you choose a Resort Location?

We loved the grounds and facilities that Galgorm had, especially for our guests who would be staying over

Tell us the most memorable part of your day

I honestly cant pin point one moment, the entire day was perfect.
