Celebrity couple Pippa O'Connor and Brian Ormond celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary with sweet tributes to each other.

Social media star Pippa (33) and her business manager husband (37), who have sons Louis (14 months) and Ollie (4), married in 2011 in Co Wicklow and had a big celebrity bash in the Powerscourt Hotel.

They both posted throwback pictures of their wedding over the weekend, with Brian calling Pippa "the most amazing wife".

"You to me are everything," he wrote.

Blogger Pippa, who hit the town to celebrate on Saturday night, told the Diary that their time as a married couple has "flown by".

"We've packed a lot in between having the boys, starting a business. It's been a busy six years," she said.

The couple met through a mutual friend in Dublin's Krystle nightclub in 2008 and have become one of Ireland's best-known celebrity couples.

But Pippa admits that, like any other busy working mum, she needs time away from her family too sometimes.

Last week saw her flying to Ibiza for a few fun-filled days on the party island, but this time around with a different Brian.

She was joined by her best pal Brian Dowling and three other buddies as they hit some of the island's hottest spots.

However, Pippa revealed that there definitely wasn't any clubbing involved, as TV presenter Brian reckons they're too long in the tooth.

"It was so fun. It looked like we were absolutely mad, but we weren't doing the typical Ibiza thing, going to nightclubs," she said.

"Brian was like, 'Darling, we're too old for nightclubs!' So we were in amazing restaurants and nice bars and that was it.

"There were five of us, but it was the best fun. I feel like I need to go on a retreat afterwards."

Pippa also said she doesn't buy into any notion of "mummy guilt" about leaving her two boys, as it's good for her to have some quality time away from the house as well.

"I've never done more than three nights away from them in a row, but I think whether you get to go away on a break or go out to an event for the day with a friend, I think it's so important for everyone to take time out," she said.

"That's whether you're a working mum or a stay-at-home mum. I don't feel guilty because it's good for them and I think it's good for me.

"I know they're at home with their dad and they're being looked after.

"I think it stands to you when you're a mum to remember that you're not just a mum and you can go and do different things."
