Lauren & Barry's Wedding
Tell us a little about how you met
Lauren moved to Dundee to study nursing and in her second year of training met Barry on a night out with friends at The Nether Inn pub. A week later Barry took Lauren to mini golf and let her win of course followed by a meal at Frankie and Benny's. Then went back to Lauren's flat and watched a film together followed by another meal the next day! More of a first date weekend and the rest is history
Talk us through the proposal
Barry took Lauren away for a weekend to a lodge in the Scottish Highlands with their dog, Darcy. To Lauren's surprise Barry proposed while she was in the hot tub and nearly lost the ring in the process!
The Phantom House
Four Seasons Suite
Why Galgorm Spa & Golf Resort
Lauren knew she wanted to get married back home and only visited one other venue, but it was always going to be Galgorm. Galgorm is our family's go to place for a special occasion. Lauren celebrated her 21st birthday in The Boudoir at the Spa. We've been at Galgorm for Christmas twice and Lauren's mum comes every year for either her birthday or wedding anniversary. We always joke that she has shares in the place! We just love Galgorm! Barry thinks its nice too
What made you choose a Resort location
We wanted somewhere special for all our guests coming from Scotland, one location that had it all! Best decision ever! No stress on the day, we stayed overnight and no worries about travelling anywhere. The staff at Galgorm couldn't have been more helpful.
Tell us the most memorable part of your day
So hard to say, we enjoyed our whole day so much. The ceremony was really beautiful in the Phantom house, such an intimate setting. The guests raved about the food especially the Strawberry Cheesecake. The Manouche Boys really got the party going at night as well!
Advice for future couples
Just enjoy it! Its your day so do it the way you want. Don't get caught up in the little things when planning because on the day no one really notices. On day take 5 minutes to stand back with your other half and watch all your guests enjoying themselves, the best feeling!
