Nicola & Jonny aren't a couple that panders to tradition: from engagement right through to their Wedding day, this is a true Galgorm Love Story through and through...
Our first date as a couple was to Mulroy Bay in Donegal. We found it on a road trip and then went over to Fanad Lighthouse!
Being from Manchester we required everything in one place – Galgorm had everything on our list.
"It felt crazy then getting on the Tube to go to dinner in Soho after such an exciting moment. The only people we told that night were the restaurant staff."
"The reason we choose Galgorm was due to the beautiful location and The Great Hall was every thing we wanted and more."
"Having our wedding at a Resort location just made everything flow so smoothly. Our guests were able to stay the night of the wedding at the hotel and make use of the amazing spa facilities. We also had our ‘Engagement’ meal at Galgorm with our families and we are returning to celebrate our ‘First Wedding Anniversary’".
'Galgorm has become our 'Haven' a real treat and our happy place. The resort has always been a place where we go when we want to get away from it all, be pampered and are always treated like royalty'
'Don't be afraid to pick up the phone to your wedding planner, I always felt better after speaking to Rose.'
'Galgorm provided so many options including our rehearsal meal the night before in Gillies, an array of accommodation and the spa was a beautiful way to finish off the celebrations the following day.'
"It is an outstanding setting"
'Standing outside The Ghost House doors waiting to walk down the aisle to John! Walking down towards him is one of the best moments of my life!'
'It's unrivaled. As soon as you drive into the grounds, the scenery is just breathtaking. The resort itself is incredible, the spa, the food, the staff, the suite. It's faultless.'
'We went to Saphyre restaurant and had the tasting menu. Before we had dessert Kyle started being soppy and before I knew it he was down on one knee.'
'We met online, whilst playing a popular video game nearly 7 years ago. We spoke online for a month or two before I came over to Belfast for a visit'
'Galgorm Resort & Spa have amazing reception rooms, stunning grounds and excellent choice of restaurants. Plus the most amazing Spa facilities.'
'Don't stress as the Galgorm team are first class and no job is too big. Galgorm gave us the most magical day we could have ever dreamt of.'
'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!'
'We fell in love with The Ghost Room and Four Seasons Suite. These two stunning venues allowed us to have the full opulent wedding experience we were looking for in a glamorous private surrounding.'
"Philip arranged a romantic dinner for us in The Oxo Tower Restaurant, London. We went out to the balcony where there is an incredible panoramic views of the City... Philip turned to me and asked me to marry him."
'Walking down the aisle and seeing Lee waiting for me and all my friends and families happy faces beaming back at me was the best feeling in the world.'
'We had looked at the Galgorm previously ourselves and then we received an invite to a friend's wedding in the Four Seasons Suite. After their wedding, it was a given that we had to have our wedding at Galgorm.'
"Stunning setting, lovely grounds and great hotel service."
'We meet 5 years ago in Australia in an Irish bar in a town called Airlie Beach in Queensland while both out there on Working Holiday Visas, we ended up staying for 3 years and our beautiful daughter Alba was born out there.'
'I sat down and John told me to start looking through the book 2013 he had filled each page with pictures and memories of our 4 years together, all of our trips, our friends, family and our first home that we had just bought.'
"We both fell in love with the surroundings and facilities, so much that we didn’t even bother looking at any other Wedding venues!"
'The package that was offered took a lot of pressure off as we didn't have to look for our own suppliers. Not even a month after getting engaged we had our wedding booked.'
"The grounds of Galgorm Resort & Spa are so beautiful, the spa is perfect for guests to relax the day after the wedding, the rooms are luxurious and the resort has a great selection of places to eat to suit all the guests! "
"We just knew that all our wedding preparation was in safe and professional hands."
"We would sit up all night talking to each other. From a little chat on MSN, our love blossomed."
"As I approached the spot at Bristol Suspension Bridge, I could see hundreds and hundreds of fairy lights illuminating the night sky. Edward had changed into a suit, and as he spotted me arriving he got down on one knee and propose."
'The incredible amount of emotion that took over me when saying my wedding vows to Grant- It was the happiest moment of my life. '
'Trust in your wedding planner. It was fantastic to have someone at Galgorm who could answer any and every question'
"We then arranged a first date after this at AMPM Belfast and then got a private show by Snow Patrol as they were rehearsing for the MTV awards outside the restaurant. "
"I had arranged a weekend away in Chester for Ben's birthday, however, Ben had changed my plans without me knowing so that he could propose"
'We met over 7 years ago in our local bar, though friends we had in common. We exchanged numbers and got to know each other, only to find out we lived just around the corner from each other'
"We initially wanted a vintage/barn style wedding but our first visit to Galgorm changed that was we fell in love with the Four Seasons straight away"
"That's when he got down on one knee and proposed. He managed to pick the ring himself which was impressive."
"After viewing the resort, we fell in love with the surroundings. We saw the Great Hall set up for another wedding the day we viewed it and it was just magical."
"Galgorm is a fantastic venue and even though there were other weddings on at the same time, you wouldn’t have known. On the day our event coordinator was beyond amazing and made sure we were on time and had a drink in our hands and couldn’t do enough for us. It made it really special."
"It was fantastic to have both the wedding ceremony and wedding reception all in one place. From the moment we looked at the Phantom House we knew right away that was the perfect place to say our wedding vows."
"It worked for us having friends and family coming from many locations to be able to accommodate guests and, being based in London, it helped to have a wedding planner co-ordinating and arranging the itinerary and events for the day. "
"Galgorm Resort & Spa has a phenomenal reputation for making your wedding day truly memorable. Gráinne and Ben are both very focused on attention to detail and therefore wanted to be able to rely on the staff at their venue to follow-through in realising the day as they had envisaged it."
"A perfect venue with stunning surroundings, friendly staff and attention to detail"
"Everything about the day was memorable, it was a fantastic day. Nothing was too much for the Staff."
"Galgorm Resort and Spa offers the complete wedding package and the facilitates are outstanding!"
"I met Chris when I was 16, we became quite close friends and at the age of 17 he decided to tell me how he felt towards me. We have never looked back!"
"I always knew I wanted to get married at Galgorm, for me, there is no other wedding venue in Northern Ireland like it. "
'Galgorm was always going to be the perfect place for us to be married. We just knew and within two months we had booked our wedding! Galgorm Resort & Spa is our happy place.'
"We made the decision straight away. It was perfect, everything about it was all I had ever dreamed about. We didn’t even look or consider any other venues"
"It was the first place that we went on an official dinner date and where we held our engagement party so it definitely made sense for us to continue our journey there."
'We had been to stay a few times and we both love it, So we knew right away where we wanted to have our wedding day. We didn’t even look anywhere else!'
'Dave secretly organised for me to have the weekend off work and brought me to a lovely little village in The Lake District called Arnside.'
We met on the first night in Uni. I (Ashley) spent most of the night trying to get my head around Sheena's name to later go back to my hall's to add her on FB as quick as possible...instead of just talking to her.
"Galgrom is a beautiful setting with stunning grounds and the river. We loved that living in Australia while planning our wedding the packages had everything covered and Galgorm does all the hard work."
"We met while both working in Tesco in 2010, Rachael was Aidan's supervisor and convinced him to work plenty of overtime!"
This isn't your stereotypical love at first sight love story! Susan & David had crossed paths in the past, but it took one fateful night in Katy Daly's before romance sparked. The rest they say is history!
'We met at a restaurant in Clapham London. He made me laugh and we've been laughing together ever since.'
'When seeing the Renaissance suite we fell in love immediately. The grandness of the room with the huge backdrop window looking out on the waterfall, the bright classic modern interior is just a dream.'
We met online - Twitter of all places! It started with a message and that was it.
