Pippa O'Connor adds wedding expert to her growing CV

Pippa O’Connor has been giving style and make-up advice on both her website and her Fashion Factory days out – but now she’ll be giving advice to brides-to-be as well.

Pippa married Brian Ormond in a stunning ceremony in June 2011 and will now be sharing her tips for the perfect big day.

Powerscourt Hotel Resort and Spa, where she and Brian held their own reception, will be holding their Powerscourt Adores… Weddings showcase on Sunday, March 8 from 12 to 3pm.

To help budding brides and grooms organise their special day, Powerscourt Hotel has invited Pippa to share her fashion tips and advice on everything bridal.

The model mum will take centre stage with Pippa’s Top Wedding Tips, which will be followed by a Bridal Fashion Show.

“My take on it is, you are planning and looking forward to this big day from the moment you get engaged or even before you get engaged,” Pippa says to couples planning their nuptials.

“You’ve put so much time and effort into making it perfect.

“Everybody is there because you love them and they love you. So what’s the point in getting hassled or fussed?

“If something isn’t how you planned it nobody else will know, only you.

“So live in the moment and take in every second and if you’re a bride to be embrace it all,” she added.
