Andrea prepares for her Ibiza wedding ... but this time it's strictly private

TOP model agency boss Andrea Roche (34) is busy applying the finishing touches to her weekend Ibiza wedding.

The former Miss Ireland will be exchanging vows with her fiance Rob White during an intimate ceremony.

The loved-up pair want to keep their nuptials low-key -- in a far cry from the star-studded affair that marked Andrea's marriage to PJ Mansfield six years ago.

This time round, it's a strictly private affair. The Herald can reveal how the ceremony will be kept under wraps with no photographs issued to the Irish press or any glossy magazine deals being signed for their big day.

Neither she nor her other half have publicly commented about the forthcoming wedding, which will take place this Sunday, reportedly at luxury wedding venue Cap d'Es Falco.

And while every detail of her wedding to PJ Mansfield in 2006 was covered by VIP Magazine, this time around she has invited just over 100 of their nearest and dearest to attend the bash.

"She wants to keep it strictly private and something just between them and their circle of family and friends -- Rob isn't in the public eye and never has been. This is their special day and they want to make sure it's just for them and their guests and don't want it splashed all over the papers," said a source.

Tipperary native Andrea, who runs the AR Agency, has decided to have four bridesmaids at the intimate ceremony. Among those she has chosen to do the honours are her future sister-in-law, actress Holly White, alongside her sister Charlene and pals Tara O'Connor and RTE stylist Lisa Fitzpatrick.

She has also invited a handful of her pals from the top agency she set up two years ago, including Pippa O'Connor with hubbie Brian Ormond, former Miss Universe Ireland Rozanna Purcell and Kristi Kuudisiim.

And herself and Rob are expected to stay on and honeymoon on the paradise island for a fortnight as they soak up some sun and celebrate their union.

Smitten Rob got down on bended knee last Christmas and popped the question during a trip up the Eiffel Tower in Paris, where they stayed at the Hotel George V.

She has only spoken once about the break-down of her first marriage, which was confirmed in March 2010 but she said previously that she would consider tying the knot again.

"I'm definitely not put off the institution of marriage. It just didn't work out for me and PJ," she said.

The former Miss Ireland has done her best to keep the relationship out of the limelight and rarely talks about her other half to the media, but the sociable pair have become regular fixtures on the Dublin scene.
