There's no time like a wedding for indulgence, luxury and pampering. Set within 163 acres of lush parkland with the spectacular River Maine flowing through the estate, Galgorm Resort has a truly unique setting, which when combined with the award winning spa and their approach to weddings and the magic behind them, makes Galgorm tick an awful lot of boxes, and pretty boxes at that. I'm fairly sure that there isn't a bride reading this who wouldn't love the serenity of the spa; I'm thinking the day before the wedding, you and your bridesmaids, something sparkly and all the relaxing. Am I wrong?... Galgorm Resort & Spa, Northern Ireland’s premier 4* luxury Resort & Spa offers a venue like no other. We truly believe in the magic of a wedding and the bond it represents. We will embrace your individuality and endeavour to ensure your unique take on how your celebration should look and feel is evident in all that we do for you. A beautiful landscape of trees, wild-flowers and the cascading waters of the River Maine provides the canvas for you to paint your own fairytale picture. Stunning ceremony rooms, the Phantom House and Ghost House, complement a choice of quite simply, breathing Wedding Suites, each with their own unique style and feel. From our dedicated Planners through to your Set Up Manager, Head Wedding Chef and their teams, we will ensure all your careful planning comes off without a hitch and that you experience the day you have always dreamed of. We LOVE weddings and believe that wedding planning needn’t feel daunting so we will be with you every step of the way, allowing you to dip into our wealth of knowledge and truly enjoy the experience. We appreciate you need more time to enjoy the fun stuff - hello cake tasting! - so we provide a helping hand in sourcing the best suppliers and can even take care of the booking. Your Wedding, Your Story.  

“We would both like to thank you for the exceptional service you gave throughout. At all times we have had confidence that the organising and planning of the day was in safe hands. This really helped when it came to any worries about things not going to plan! We really did appreciate the clear & timely communication. On the initial visit with yourself, any question we had (no matter how daft!) had an answer or an explanation straight away. This gave us so much confidence.” Vikki & Glen, 1st July 2016

“We had our wedding reception in the Four Seasons Suite at the Galgorm on Tuesday 27th June & our day could not have been any more perfect! Gabriel looked after us the whole day, ensuring we enjoyed every single moment of our day, from offering the men words of advice before their speeches, ensuring excellent service throughout the meal to providing us with some time together alone before the evening got underway. The staff were very friendly and attentive, ensuring all guests were looked after promptly and with an outstanding service. The food looked and tasted amazing! Our wedding co-ordinator Oliver was brilliant throughout our planning, answering any questions or queries we had and making sure everything came together. I would highly recommend to anyone planning a wedding to choose Galgorm as their venue.” Lauren & Matthew, 27th June 2017
