Galgorm Resort & Spa Winter Wedding Nicola & Ryan
This was the first wedding of 2015 for us, and what a way to start the year with a fantastic Galgorm Resort & Spa Winter Wedding! Nicola and Ryan’s winter wedding day was defiantly a chilly one, but one so full of fun and smiles you’d never know it was as cold as it was.
Galgorm Resort & Spa is one of the most popular wedding venues in the country, with its beautiful picturesque setting, named after the little village it stands by. We work a lot with couples there on their wedding days. It’s a wedding venue that has everything a modern bride could look for, Stunning scenery, fantastic recently refurbished function rooms and staff who couldn’t do more for you. Its always a pleasure to work there.
We started the day with Nicola in her luxury room in the main hotel, getting some detail shots of her dress, flowers and accessories, and some relaxed photos of Nicola and her girls getting ready.
Nicola and Ryan chose to take their vows in the stunning Phantom House on the estate itself. We took the opportunity while the guests were arriving, to get some casual wedding shots of the Ryan and his Groomsmen while they waited for Nicola and her Bridesmaids.
Nicola and her Bridesmaids travelled the short distance, from the main hotel to the phantom house, in the Galgorm’s very own two Rolls Royce phantom and Ghost cars.
Following the service we took some time to get so stunning shots of the newly married couple around the grounds. It was extremely cold, minus five in the wind according to the weather man. We had a blanket for Nicola so she could kept warm between each shot, but even with this it was still very cold. Nicola and Ryan are a fantastic couple to work with, nothing was to much trouble and you wouldn’t even know it was cold to look at them in these photographs.
The wedding breakfast was held in the newly refurbished Renaissance Suite, at the Galgorm resort and Spa, preceded by some of the funniest speeches I’ve heard in a while.
Dinner was followed by a quick change around of the Renaissance Suite and the wedding party danced the night away to the smooth sound of Conspiracy Wedding band.
