Will Pippa and Brian say 'I do' to a magazine deal for their big day?

BRIDE-to-be Pippa O'Connor insists she and her other half Brian Ormond are not in any rush to seal a lucrative magazine deal when they walk down the aisle next summer.

The blonde beauty explained the couple have yet to plan the finer details and said the possibility of selling the rights to their nuptials to a glossy publication such as VIP or RSVP magazine is not something they have yet considered.

The showbiz couple are due to swap vows next June at a star-studded ceremony and have confirmed the exclusive venue of the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Enniskerry, Co Wicklow, for their reception.

Model Pippa (26) is said to have fallen in love with the luxurious hotel two years ago when she and her other half attended the glitzy nuptials of star couple Claudine Palmer and Robbie Keane.

In fact, presenter Brian even chose to return to the romantic venue last Christmas Eve in order to go down on bended knee.

"It's no secret that we're going to the Ritz-Carlton at this stage," Pippa told the Herald.

"We haven't even thought about a magazine deal or anything like that. It's still quite a while away so I don't like saying too much about it yet.

"I don't know if it's something we would be interested in to be honest. We'll see."

It has already been revealed that Brian's best pal Mickey Joe Harte will act as his best man on the big day.

The pair first met several years ago after they both took part in RTE talent show You're a Star and have remained close ever since.

Brian's daughter Chloe (9) is also expected to play a central role in the ceremony.

Other anticipated guests at the glitzy event include Claudine Palmer and Robbie Keane, Rosanna Davison and Wesley Quirke and Laura Woods and her husband Mark Arigho, to name but a few.

The couple will have 110 guests in total in attendance on the big day, with Pippa's sister Susanna and her best friend Niamh acting as her bridesmaids.

The O'Connor family have already had plenty of excitement planning Susanna's wedding the summer before last.

Her show-jumping champion brother Cian O'Connor is also due to wed his long-term love Ruth Maybin after proposing last month.
