A little bit about me….
I started working in travel in 1998 – 21 years. I have been working in Heffernan’s Travel since 2006. I work in the Weddings Abroad department. We specialise in weddings and honeymoons worldwide. I have organised 100’s of weddings over the last few years to many destinations; Portugal, Malta, Spain, Austria, Ice Hotel, Italy, Cyprus, Croatia, The Caribbean, Borneo, Thailand, Mauritius and USA. I really enjoy working with couples and help them to decide on their perfect location. We plan their full day so often we would be dealing with a couple for up to a year in advance. I have visited many of our locations, this really helps in trying to match a venue for each couple as wedding party sizes, tastes and budgets vary hugely.
My favourite place….
I must say I love anywhere that is warm and hot. I really enjoy relaxing and lying in the sun with a good book. If I had to choose a favourite place I would probably say “The Caribbean”. I have been very lucky to visit many islands. I enjoy the friendly atmosphere, gorgeous white sandy beaches and crystal clear water. I definitely recommend to book on an all-inclusive basis, the food choice is fantastic! I love the fact that I have paid for everything before I go and I just eat, drink and relax after that!
My 2nd favourite place has to be Orlando Florida. I have been travelling there for the last 5 years, usually I go before Christmas, lovely time of year, not too busy and weather is perfect. I love the mix of good weather and excellent shopping just before Christmas. The malls and outlets are fantastic, really good value and very accessible. There is a real buzz around all the time…it is a very happy place with all the theme parks and everyone having fun. Great choice of restaurants suits all tastes and budgets.
I have always wanted to travel to….
I would love to travel to Borneo in Malaysia –There are some beautiful hotels set on secluded beaches in the middle of a nature reserve, stunning scenery. This is home of the Orang-Utans and after watching nature programs – I would love the opportunity to get to see them in their natural habitats.
