Asked to name Northern Ireland's five best wedding venues, he recommends...
The Culloden has everything you could possibly wish for, a huge function space to accommodate both families and friends or you can opt for their smaller function spaces. There are sea views, a country house feel and excellent links to the city. The food is superb with a very well constructed wine list. The décor is traditional but not out dated and the staff are on hand to organise just about anything at all you could possibly want.

When it comes to city centre weddings nobody does it better than Ten Square. Situated right behind Belfast City Hall it is perfect for those registry office weddings of 60-100 people. The function room upstairs is worthy of even the most stylish of brides and their in-house wedding planner Lucy will answer all of your wedding wishes like a fairy Godmother. Whatever you want, whenever you want it and how much of it you need is absolutely no problem to the team at Ten square.

The award-winning Resort has just unveiled its latest wedding masterpiece - The Renaissance Suite which has been designed using luxurious materials, including rich leather seating, antique gold leaf mirrors, solid oak panel walls, a feature fireplace and chandelier bar that have created a decidedly different, but timeless and opulent feel.
Galgorm has long been hailed as the number one wedding venue in Northern Ireland, and only 30 minutes from Belfast set on the banks of the River Maine, it’s not hard to see why. With a variety of banqueting suites to avail of, there is something to suit every taste and budget whatever your personal style may be.

The Manor House is steeped in history, it oozes class and charm and the helpful team are on hand with smiles and eagerness to please at all times. An excellent chef and beautiful surroundings including the hotel's own lake are all part of what makes this fabulous venue. The ideal place for an idyllic, dream come true wedding. Who else can offer their wedding guests a cruise on the lake as part of their big day? With great deals available I see no reason why you would not opt for a wedding at this fantastic venue.

The Crawfordsburn Inn is one of the most popular wedding venues in Northern Ireland and it is not hard to see why. Good cooking with ample portions, coupled with nice wine and a homely, relaxing décor make weddings at Crawfordsburn feel like you are enjoying a day at home with your nearest and dearest. The Crawfordsburn won't break the budget and I guarantee you everyone will thank you for choosing this quaint village Inn.
