Brian Dowling will say ‘I do’ to his long-term love tomorrow – and like anyone getting married, he’s making sure to schedule in plenty of pampering before his big day.
The tv star, who famously won the first ever Big Brother in 2001, is set to tie the knot to his fiance, Armenian choreographer Arthur Gourounlian, in his native Dublin tomorrow.
The couple have been together for three years and although there were initial reports that they wed in an intimate ceremony in London last week, the smitten couple can’t wait for their Irish bash, which will feature a host of VIPs.
Among the glam attendees will be model and beauty blogger Pippa O’Connor, who has been telling her Snapchat followers that she will be having a three day work week this week as one of her “best friends in the whole world” is getting married.
Pippa and Brian’s friendship is well documented on social media, and the pair shared plenty of photos when they partied in Mykonos, Greece for his ‘Sten’ party earlier this month.
The reality star is making sure to treat himself before he walks down the aisle, and paid a visit to the Grooming Rooms on South William Street for a pamper sesh.
Brian looked cool, calm and collected in his simple skinny jeans and leather jacket, while he clutched a Louis Vuitton carrier bag, as he entered the barbers to make sure his new beard is in tip top condition for tomorrow.
The presenter then joined his sister Aoife, who will act as chief bridesmaid for lunch at Dakota Bar, and of course pose for some selfies.
Brian’s hubby-to-be has also been sharing his excitement online, writing on Twitter last week: “This week has been crazy! Time for last min shopping and packing. This time next week I’ll be a groom…”.
