Sarah Morrissey plans Christmas honeymoon for summer wedding to footballer fiance
She'll be a summer bride with her Italian wedding this June, but Dublin model Sarah Morrissey will not get to enjoy her honeymoon until Christmas time.
The former Miss Ireland and her other half, Pat's Athletic footballer Pat Jennings, will walk down the aisle in Tuscany this summer.
But Morrissey told the Herald that the couple, who have been together since 2006, are putting their post-wedding holiday on the back burner until the end of the year.
"We're marrying abroad as we're both very private people and we love Italy, so wanted something intimate," the 30-year-old said.
"BUT WE HAVEN'T EVEN LOOKED AT A HONEYMOON YET BECAUSE PAT WILL BE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FOOTBALL SEASON.
"But it's been like that for years and we're used to it, it's the routine anyway for us. We're hoping to go away somewhere in December when he's got some proper time off." Morrissey, who has four sisters, has asked twin Louise to be her only bridesmaid.
Working in front of the camera nearly seven days a week, Morrissey has had little time to finalise wedding plans.
"I've loads of last minute stuff to do, but I've just been so busy I haven't had a moment. I know I'll get it all done though, eventually."
