Hero image www.galgorm.com_v2

Whether engaged or simply wistfully dreaming of what your ideal Wedding Day will be like, it’s almost certain you have considered the minor detail of potential venues. Choosing a destination is no easy task and couples are now more than ever spoiled for choice when it comes to venues; barns, castles, hotels, even music halls, the list goes on! While aesthetics play a major role, have you considered the onsite amenities, customer service and accessibility for your guests? To assist you with your decision making we have pulled together just a few reasons why you should consider a full-service resort wedding.  

1. Convenience

It is safe to say that every couple hopes to reminisce in years to come on the day they invited their nearest and dearest to celebrate the moment you said “I Do’. Savour quality time with your loved ones, particularly those who have travelled great distances, by having one central location for your guests to stay. With 125 rooms including suites, deluxe, superior and standard rooms as well as self-catering cottages, shepherd's huts and log cabins, Galgorm offers accommodation to suit each and every type of guest. Afford yourself the peace of mind that with fewer moving pieces, there is less chance of mistakes being made. 

2. Ceremony Rooms

Why not try somewhere more unusual for your wedding ceremony? Galgorm is home to two stunning and equally unique venues offering a magical backdrop for a civil ceremony or exchange of vows. Hosting your ceremony and celebrating your wedding reception mere yards away from one another minimises the moving pieces and allows your guests to virtually forget about their car keys for the day, focusing entirely on embracing your fairytale romance. Make the most of the time you have saved travelling between venues and have your wedding photography complemented by the stunning grounds of Galgorm. Our selection of trusted suppliers are specialists at delivering those lesser-known Galgorm shots guaranteed to wow time and time again, all seasons considered. 

The traditional Phantom House nestles against the backdrop of ancient rolling woodland and gently flowing waterfalls, boasting original stonework, Aga fires and a private balcony overlooking the river. The Ghost House offers a completely magical setting, adorned with elegant drapes, and twinkling candles. Both locations offer outdoor options for the brighter seasons and are the ultimate in timeless romance.  

3. On-site Pampering

During the final few days in the run-up to the main event, the last thing you wish to be doing is frantically traveling from A to B all in the name of pre-wedding pampering. Relax and unwind in the serene surroundings of Ireland’s first award-winning Thermal Spa Village. Gather your thoughts as the flurry of excitement builds and take some time to embrace a moment of tranquillity in the most beautiful, calming surroundings our our three different spa gardens. If it's time for two you desire, relax and unwind post-wedding with a private Bathing Experience. Nestled among the olive trees and apple orchard of the Walled Garden or alongside the River Maine. 

4. Stress-Free Planning

More often than not, your dream Resort can offer a range of all-inclusive packages, particularly beneficial when organising a wedding from afar. At Galgorm, our team of highly experienced Wedding Planners have devised a number of packages that draw on the experience of selective and highly respected experts in their field. After all, planning is part of the experience so ensure you soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the fun stuff while rest assured that every detail is being taken care of. 

5. Experienced and Devoted Staff

Last, but certainly not least, rest assured that from the moment you inquire about hosting one of the most memorable events of your life, each intricate detail will be taken care of in a manner of sheer professionalism, with each member of staff devoted to ensuring a successful event. Your Resort will be no stranger to hosting weddings and yet you will feel as though your celebrations are as unique as your love for one another.
