    Newlyweds Kimwana and Dean Eve


Kimwana and Dean Eve were today named the big winners in an island-wide competition for newlyweds run by the Chamber of Commerce.

The pair won close to $3,000 in prizes as part of the Bermuda Gets Married promotion.

“We are just thrilled,” they said. “Our July 4th wedding day was one of the happiest of our lives, now we have this to enjoy on top of everything else. It is truly the icing on the cake!”

The eight-week promotion entitled people to vote for a newlywed couple, or bride-to-be when shopping in participating stores. The only stipulation was that the persons nominated be married within this calendar year.

Each participating store donated a prize for the promotion — the newlyweds will receive 15 gift certificates totalling $2,650.

Paula Clarke, retail division chair of the Chamber, said: “Bermuda Gets Married was a fun and innovative way for family and friends to get involved in the couples big day, simply by shopping locally at their favourite stores.

“We look forward to welcoming the newlyweds into our stores as they shop for everything they need and want to complete their home. Our hope being that they turn happy memories into a lifetime of shopping locally.”
