Christmas: it’s the most wonderful time of the year. With twinkling lights all around, heartwarming films, tales of miracles, roaring fires, and, if you’re really lucky, a light dusting of snow, it feels like there’s magic everywhere you turn. And that magic is what makes the festive period such a popular time to pop the question!
Every single year in the UK, more than 100,000 couples will get engaged over the holiday season. Yes, you read that right! And as much as 40% of those engagements happen sometime between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day!
Lots of freshly engaged couples mean lots of work for the Hog Roast Coleraine team, and since returning to the office, our staff have received dozens of calls from those looking to make a start on their wedding plans.
Most recently, we heard from Orla and Cameron, who, after getting engaged on Christmas Day, decided to start organising their big day right away. Eager to tie the knot as soon as possible, they reached out to Hog Roast Coleraine to discuss our availability for this side of the year, and they were thrilled to discover that we have a slot open in the spring, which just so happens to be the date of their anniversary. It must be fate!
After talking the pair through our expansive selection of menu options, our catering manager, Jamie, also let the couple know about some of our partner venues. Orla and Cameron seemed especially interested in finding out more about the Dufferin Coaching Inn, which is an iconic space filled with history and character, making it perfect for the style of wedding these two have in mind!
Having previously heard plenty of wedding horror stories, Orla and Cameron were pleasantly surprised by how easy it was for them to organise the most important parts of their big day. In one simple, stress-free phone call, this couple managed to secure their dream venue and an outstanding Hog Roast Coleraine menu!
