The Couple

Tell us a little about how you met

We met whilst working, however, we then moved on in our jobs and met on a night out randomly, we then arranged a first date after this at AMPM Belfast and then got a private show by Snow Patrol as they were rehearsing for the MTV awards outside the restaurant. 

Talk us through the proposal

Lloyd proposed to me in New York in the view restaurant which is a rotating restaurant in Times Square on the 16/11/14. I didn't even notice the huge ring box in his inner coat pocket all day when we were sightseeing around Nyc. It was such a surprise and one I was not expecting. The views were incredible and they baked us a whole cake to celebrate. 

The Setting


Magherafelt Chapel


Four Seasons Suite

Why Galgorm Resort & Spa

Galgorm Resort & Spa stood out for us immediately. The Spa, the service, the decor, the food and above all the package suited us for our numbers in the Four Seasons Suite which we felt was perfect and suited both our taste.

Tell us the most memorable part of your day

The most memorable part of our day was probably the speeches and first dance. It was emotional and over whelming. A memory we will never forget. The first dance was perfect, we chose John Legend All Of Me and it will always remind us of that moment. 

Advice for future couples

We would advise to decide on your numbers first and then your venue. Enjoy the planning and preparations and don't stress. All falls into place in the end.
