Nerja, Spain (PressExposure) February 19, 2009 -- Nicola lives in Co Dublin, Ireland and will marry Eoghan McLaughlin later this year, and this weekend will meet all the suppliers who have contributed to her prize to discuss exactly what she wants for her dream day.
Entrants to the competition, coordinated by local Wedding Planners âCelebrations in Spainâ were asked why they should win. Nicola wrote:
I've learnt my Spanish by spending a summer in language school in Nerja and from many family holidays there over the years, especially in recent times. My family have a huge connection to this beautiful Andalucian pueblo and it would mean so much to us to have a wedding there. Just five months ago, my dad lost his courageous battle with a brain tumour. In a way Nerja always brings us closer together, it has been a sanctuary to us all through both happy and sad times. I would love the opportunity to have my wedding there so that maybe I might have a greater chance of feeling that connection to the one man, apart from the groom, who should be at my side on my wedding day.
Kerry Vear-Smyth, Managing Director of Celebrations in Spain said: âWhen Nicola was told by phone that she had won she burst into tears and really couldnât believe it. She rung us back when she had finished work to confirm that it was true. She thought that maybe one of her friends was winding her up!!! A confirmation e mail land several phone calls later she seems to have accepted that she really had won. â
