Michelle Coyle is such a deserving candidate. Not only does she look like a fairytale Bride, she also is one of the kindest young women that I know.
She dedicates so much of her time helping the vulnerable & misfortunate, and works tirelessly with so many charities.
It is so rare in these times to come across a young person like Michelle.. someone who restores your faith in humanity. It would be so lovely to see Michelle & Liam win.

    I’m the man who was lucky enough to have Shona marry me. She is the most amazing, generous and kind-hearted person that you could meet. She looked absolutely stunning on our wedding day, as she always does.

    Shona did everything in order to ensure that our wedding day was the amazing day that it was. She truly deserves this wonderful prize.
