Expert wedding planners: Tara Fay and Bruce Russell

The first wedding legendary events planner Bruce Russell organised was his own.

He and his husband married nine years ago, having met "the old fashioned way," Bruce jokes, on match.com. The marriage took place shortly before he set up his own wedding planning business. "But I didn't become a wedding planner because I planned my own wedding and it was wonderful," he laughs now. He looked after the ideas, did the research, he recalls now, but both of them were very involved. "I would present him with three options and he could pick the one."

Next Saturday (February 22), Bruce is in Ireland, where he and fellow wedding planner, Tara Fay, his co-host from the RTE show My Big Day: Home or Away, will host The Ultimate Wedding Retreat at Adare Manor.
