Geraldine Goodison

The first How Long Wedding

26 year old Geraldine Goodison is a legal secretary from Waterford.

She wants to quit smoking before her wedding day and she hopes to improve her life expectancy. But nicotine addiction is hard to beat and preparing for the big day is proving stressful.

She tries hypnotherapy in an effort to break her habit. She also attempts to increase her fitness levels by going back to an old school sport, basketball, and she prepares for her first dance with a Salsa session. But after all this will Geraldine get her fairytale ending?
