Can't make Brogue's big day? Sorry, no fizz-bombs for you!
The guestlist for Brian McFadden's wedding got a little shorter these past few days.
Taking place tomorrow in Florence, Italy, regrets this week included couple Brian Ormond and Pippa O'Connor, along with model Vivienne Connolly, who was due to jet out with boyfriend TV producer John Norton.
"GAA training" is the excuse from Brian and Pippa, who are busy managing rival teams in the forthcoming series of Celebrity Bainisteoir, as well as the wedding of their friend Neil McCarthy in Donegal next week.
Donegal figures in the regrets of Vivienne Connolly too, who can't attend as she has a modelling job up north first thing Monday morning. But if boyfriend John Norton can't bring his sweetheart, some sweets will do instead.
The Celebrity Salon man's wedding gift to Brian and Vogue is a hamper of ye olde Irish sweets.
Picture this: tomorrow at one of the world's most exclusive destinations, Castello Di Vincigliata outside Florence, after dinner, wedding guests including Dannii Minogue and Ronan Keating will be tucking into 'fizz-bombs', 'black-jacks', and 'refreshers' from confectioners supplied by Dublin's Sweet Treat Company.
"The Old Dublin sweets should bring Vogue right back to Fade Street," joked one wedding insider.
