The Couple

Tell us a little about how you met

Darren and I met in November 2012 in a pub called Lily's, which was along the Lisburn Road, Belfast. He approached me, we chatted, swapped numbers and the rest is history.

Talk us through the proposal

In June 2016 Darren took me out for dinner in Manchester, where we live. He suprised me after the meal by proposing.

The Setting

Ceremony

Phantom House, Galgorm Resort & Spa

Reception

Renaissance Suite, Galgorm Resort & Spa

Why Galgorm Resort & Spa

I grew up in the local area and always loved the hotel. The setting and hotel are beautiful and staff are so attentive and friendly.

What made you choose a Resort location

As we live in Manchester and had guests coming from overseas we thought it was easier at one resort and the package deal made it even easier

Tell us the most memorable part of your day

I loved our full day, its hard to pick one memorable part. From arriving at the Phantom house, the ceremony, the evening do and the irish dancers.

Advice for future couples

It's cliche as you hear this often, but it is unbelievable how fast the day goes by. Enjoy it and try and take it all in, spend time with your other half. I am glad we got a videographer, best decision we love it!
