The Galgorm Resort and Spa in Northern Ireland is perfect for a weekend to de-stress if wedding planning is starting to take its toll.

Just 30 minutes outside Belfast, this beautiful resort offers 75 well-designed and elegant rooms, two restaurants (bag a table at the River Room and try the tasting menu for sheer luxury) and stunning grounds to explore (you can even borrow a bike or saddle up a horse from the resort's stables).

But the main event is the Galgorm Spa. Opt for an invigorating Eve Lom Ultimate Cleanse Facial (£85 for 55 mins - have this at least two to three weeks before the big day) or a rejuvenating hot lava shell full body massage (£75 for 55 mins), before relaxing in Galgorm's world-class thermal spa.

If you're taking your fiancé along, why not give yourselves a pre-honeymoon (or even post-wedding) treat by booking into the Paris suite? A decadent, private spa suite with freestanding Parisian baths placed side-by-side for added romance.

The resort even offers a romantic proposal package, including a trip in Galgorm's Rolls Royce Phantom and a choice of secluded spots to get down on one knee.

As for the wedding itself, Galgorm has that covered too, with three stunning venues - traditional and modern - available to hire for the big day. To find out more or book a break visit or call +44 (0)28 2588 1001.
