The Couple

Tell us a little about how you met

We met at a restaurant in Clapham London. I was meeting friends and Damian was also meeting friends for dinner.  We both were waiting for our respective friends to arrive and Damian turned around and started to talk to me.  He made me laugh and we've been laughing together ever since.

Talk us through the proposal

It was Damian's Birthday on 8 March 207, so he booked a weekend away break in the Isle of Wight. On the evening of his birthday (a Saturday), I had arranged a surprise  birthday cake for him.  It was completely unexpected and he loved it.  It was then his turn to surprise me and he had champagne delivered to our table with the ring tied around it on a ribbon.  It was my turn to be surprised. To be honest, I knew we loved one another and was hoping he would say something on our trip and was surprised when he asked me on his birthday.  He says that when I said "yes" it was his best birthday present ever.

Why Galgorm Resort & Spa

Galgorm Resort and Spa is a very beautiful place. It has spectacular views of the waterfall, the green fields and the staff are exceptional. They will go the extra mile to make your day a memorable one. The staff are very professional and dedicated to their work, and they take great pride in doing what they do. 

What made you choose a Resort location

We had gone to a few wedding fairs in England and one in Ireland and when we saw the Galgorm had to go and see for ourselves.  Once there we fell in love with the place.

Tell us the most memorable part of your day

Staying at the Signature suite was the best. Not forgetting having photographs taken by the lake with the waterfall cascading behind. It was breath taking..

Advice for future couples

You must visit the Galgorm Resort & Spa if you want to have a day to remember. From the grounds, to the luxury rooms and spa, to the customer service is spectacular.
