Rockstar Wedding At The Slieve Donard Resort


Chloe & Liam’s Real Life Wedding

Slieve Donard Resort & Spa, 15th June 2019


Chloe and Liam are high school sweethearts, first meeting in secondary school at the age of 14. ‘We have been best friends since from the moment we first met, which I think has always made our relationship so fun,’ jokes Chloe.


‘Liam whisked me away to Florida for my 21st Birthday,’ recalls Chloe. ‘We had booked a day at the gorgeous Discovery Cove. We arrived at around 7am to watch the sun rising as we checked in. Then we walked down to the quiet beach area surrounded by nothing but stunning tropical scenery. Liam pulled out his camera and started taking shots of the beach and the scenery. He then put the camera down on the sand, as though to snap a picture of us in this beautiful setting, but instead he was filming what he was about to do.’

‘He opened up his sunglasses case and pulled out a ring box, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I was in complete shock, and certainly didn’t expect to be coming home with a ring on my finger! It was truly the most magical day.’


Chloe felt like the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa would offer the couple such sentimental value; ‘I have a lot of family living in the Newcastle area and the Slieve Donard Resort has always been somewhere we would visit, or even just pass to admire the beauty of it. Since I was a little girl I would always say that Slieve Donard was where I wanted to have my dream wedding. It’s surreal to think that my dream actually came true!’

‘The wow factor has to be the stunning scenery. The Mourne Mountains just have a certain magical feel about them. Our guests absolutely loved the entire resort, and looking out over the sea and towards the mountains is just beautiful.’


‘We didn’t follow any specific themes/trends as such, we just wanted a classic, modern aesthetic. The venue is so beautiful, we let it do all the talking. In terms of stationery and extra details, we kept things elegant using blush pink and navy.’

‘We want to personally thank the incredible wedding team at the Slieve Donard for all their help with planning our big day. We really were made to feel like absolute rockstar’s and we just had an absolute dream of a wedding that we will always treasure.’


Chloe chose a beautiful feminine sheath dress with a low illusion back. ‘I added a crystal belt and paired it with a lovely mid length veil. My bridesmaids wore beautiful, flowing blush pink dresses, and the groom and groomsmen wore navy suits to keep in with the blush and navy theme.’



‘Our wedding photographers were just incredible. Andrew and his team were the friendliest guys we have ever met, so down to earth, and so talented! They were able to blend into the background and take such natural shots, nothing forced or awkward about it. They were just able to capture the special moments of the day and we couldn’t have been happier! A huge thank you to Andrew and Matt for everything!


Chloe & Liam both agree that they celebrated their big day in style, with an incredible party! ‘During our first dance and the dance with my dad, our DJ got everyone standing around the edges of the dance floor. This was just so special, as we were able to really share this moment with them all. Then, as soon as those two dances were over, he jumped right in with ‘We Like to Party!’ by The Vengaboys…

‘This got everyone jumping and really set the party vibe for the rest of the night. This whole experience was something so different, and certainly nothing either of us had seen before at a wedding. We just loved every second of it!’
