Model Pippa O'Connor has revealed that she and husband Brian Ormond won't be attending Ronan Keating's exclusive wedding.

Crooner Ronan (38) is set to wed his Australian fiancee Storm Uechtritz (34) in Scotland later this month, but blogger Pippa told the Herald she and Brian won't be making the trip - despite flying to Edinburgh a few weeks ago to watch Boyzone perform live with TV producer Storm.

When asked if she would be attending the glitzy ceremony, Pippa replied: "No, we won't be going."

However, the award-winning blogger and her husband were top of the guest list at Big Brother star Brian Dowling's intimate wedding last week at Powerscourt Estate.

The Kildare model couldn't help but shed a tear as she watched her reality-star pal get hitched to choreographer Arthur Gourounlian.

"It was good fun with a great atmosphere," Pippa said "There was a real sense of love."

Pippa was on hand to judge the Best Dressed Lady competition at the RDS Dublin Horse Show and cheer on her showjumping star brother Cian O'Connor (35) as he competed.

"It's funny that [Cian and I] are both here doing different things. I've been coming here since I was a child so I know it and I'm comfortable here.

"I always came here as a child and admired the women and their gorgeous outfits so it's great to be a judge now."

Another familiar face at this year's horse show for Olympic bronze medallist Cian is his former flame US showjumper Georgina Bloomberg.

Asked if he had spoken to his sporting ex, who is a daughter of American billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the Meath-based sportsman responded: "Georgina and I are good friends."
