Naomh & Matthew's Wedding
Tell us a little about how you met
We met at school 16 years ago. We were put in the same form class, so it must have been fate!
Talk us through the proposal
We were on a road trip around Ireland in November 2017 and were staying in Killarney. Matthew suggested an early morning walk out to Torc Waterfall (which was ironic given how much Naomh then cried once he had proposed!) and in front of the waterfall and a bus load of American tourists he quietly proposed. It was perfect...
St.Patrick's Chapel, Portadown
Why Galgorm Spa & Golf Resort
Because they are stars! We went to their Spring wedding fair on an absolute whim and totally fell in love with not only the hotel but the service and surroundings.
What made you choose a Resort location
We had absolutely no idea what we were doing when planning a wedding and the first conversation we had with a Galgorm wedding planner sealed the deal! It was amazing knowing you had someone to give advice and help you out. Not to mention their superb attention to detail and the way nothing was too much bother (even when Naomh was sending emails in the middle of the night!) We just knew we were in safe hands at Galgorm.
Tell us the most memorable part of your day
Walking out of the chapel to Fatboy Slim was pretty cool! But it would have to be our incredible band. We had the 20 piece PM Big Band who were just amazing and kept everyone dancing all night to songs old and new! And were just something a wee bit different.
Advice for future couples
Try and finish planning a week in advance of the wedding so you can spend the week in the run up to the big day just enjoying yourself and letting go of some of that stress!
