Real Weddings

The Couple

Tell us a little about how you met

We first met 6 years ago both as new freshers at Cardiff University.

 

Talk us through the proposal

Grant booked a holiday for us to Dubai, where he purposed on a boat outside the Atlantis- but the best part of all was choosing the ring together after.

 

The Setting

Ceremony

First Cookstown Presbyterian Church

 

Reception

The Renaissance Suite 

 

Why Galgorm Resort & Spa 

Galgorm was the first venue we went to view and it is safe to say that we fell in love immediately. We were so impressed by the level of detail the wedding team went into that we chose a date and booked it instantly. We knew Galgorm would be perfect for our big day and having a wedding planner to co-ordinate and plan the itinerary for the entire weekend just topped it off. 

 

What made you choose a Resort location?

As we had such a large number of guests flying from all over the world for our wedding day, Galgorm was perfect resort for our guests to relax for 4 days. Galgorm also arranged a wonderful Meet & Greet Drinks Reception in Gillies the day before our wedding for our families to get to know each other prior to the big day. Finally having breakfast the next day followed by the spa with all of our friends and family together was the perfect way to finish off our wedding celebrations.  

 

Tell us the most memorable part of your day

Walking into First Cookstown Church to see all of our wonderful family and friends together just took my breath away. And then the incredible amount of emotion that took over me when saying my wedding vows to Grant- It was the happiest moment of my life.  

 

Advice for future couples

It is the happiest, most amazing day of your lives, surrounded by all of your favourite people in the world. So my advice would be to prioritise capturing every moment. We ended up having 2 videographers and 2 photographers so we can relive the day over and over.
