Pippa O’Connor and Brian Ormond have a lot to celebrate this weekend as today marks their tenth wedding anniversary. Of course, they are making the most of the occasion as the pair have headed off to stay in the stunning Adare Manor for the next few days.
Sharing a video of their time together as well as a beautiful tribute to her husband today on social media she said; “Happy 10 Years -18/6/2011.”
“I’m so lucky to get to spend this life with my best friend.. you make me laugh so much. You’re a dreamer, a doer and a quick thinker. I love your infectious energy & ability to make things happen. You’re kind and generous to the core. Always ready to help those around you without even thinking of yourself first.”
Continuing she said; “I have the fondest memories of our wedding day this day 10 years ago, it was so beautiful. 26 year old me hadn’t a clue about what was ahead of us.. I’m so proud of us & everything we’ve been through, together.”

On the 18th of June 2011, the happy couple were joined by 120 of their closest friends and family as they said ‘I do’ in St Patrick’s Church, Curlestown.
The group then retired to the Ritz-Cartlon in Powerscourt for their lavish reception, where they were joined by a further 200 guests. Pippa and Brian had their first dance to When You Got A Good Thing by Lady Antebellum, before partying into the early hours of the morning.
Brian spoke exclusively to VIP Magazine at the time about how incredible his wife looked on their big day; “I knew she was going to look nice, but I couldn’t believe how fantastic she looked. She was incredible.”
“Two or three times during the vows I thought I was going to lose it because I was totally blown away by her.”
Celebrity guests including Mickey Joe Harte, who was Brian’s best man, as well as Claudine and Robbie Keane, Rosanna Davison, Roz Purcell, Sarah Morrissey, Georgia Salpa and Daniella Moyles and many more were in attendance.
Pippa stunned in a Monique Lhuillier dress with a feathered skirt and boned bodice, accessorised by a full-length veil and a pair of diamond earrings from Paul Sheeran and of course, sparkling Jimmy Choo heels.
In our exclusive interview from 2011, Pippa spoke about the emotional ceremony: “I was at the top of the aisle before I knew it. I was so excited. I was half afraid to look Brian in the eye, though, in case I burst into tears! I kept saying to myself ‘Keep it together, keep it together.’”
Pippa and Brian have since welcomed two boys since their big day, Louis and Ollie. Earlier this month Pippa revealed that they are expanding their brood and are set to welcome their third child later this year.
Announcing the wonderful news to Instagram, alongside a snap of her growing bump, Pippa shared; “I’m feeling beyond grateful and happy to be sharing our special news.”
“We are all so excited to welcome baby Ormond to our family this Autumn.”
