Newly Weds Win Best Job Ever!
Mark and Denise Duffield-Thomas have won what most people would regard as the best job in world. The couple who live in London won a competition run by Runaway Bride and Groom to visit some of the world’s most exotic honeymoon destinations.
The competition which comes with a salary of 20,000 Euros, received 30,000 applications from more than 90 countries since the competition launched in February. The finalists came from Australia, US, Canada, South Africa, Brazil, UK, Galway, Wexford, Sligo, Dublin and Cork to battle it out for the top position, unveiled in Kinsale, Co Cork.
Denise, 30, originally from Sydney, and Mark, 26, from Cheshire, and who works in sponsorship for Manchester United, will begin their 6 month working holiday beginning in Zanzibar, Mauritius and will take part in a private escorted safari in Kenya.
“We have had the most amazing weekend in Kinsale and we hope to make you all proud as ambassadors for Ireland around the globe in the next six months,” Denise said. While in Kinsale they were based in Ballinacurra House, which the late Michael Jackson has visited, and had to face a range grueling challenged and interviews.
Rosemarie Meleady, Runaway Bride and Groom managing director and one of the judges, said: “The Top 10 have all worked incredibly hard not just to get to the final but also throughout this weekend, with all the tasks we have given them. Given the amount of talent displayed by all the contestants, the decision was a very difficult one but we are happy with the final result.”
