Honeymooners Brippa are simply having a ball in Bali

HERE are the first pictures of newly-weds Brian Ormond and Pippa enjoying their dream honeymoon in sun-kissed Bali.

The TV presenter and his gorgeous other half -- collectively known as Brippa -- have been having the time of their lives after jetting off immediately after their lavish wedding in the Ritz Carlton.

Brian has told friends that they had a "great day" as they enjoyed all the amenities the Indonesian island has to offer, including white-water rafting followed by elephant riding.

They are enjoying a three-week honeymoon in Bali and Singapore following their dream wedding, which saw Brian describe Pippa as "the love of my life" in his speech.

"People say that the whole thing will be a huge blur, but I remember every bit of it. It was the best day of my life. I'm still smiling," said Brian in an interview with VIP magazine afterwards.

Pippa added: "It was amazing, everything worked out exactly as we hoped it would. I felt like I was in a dream. I was at the top of the aisle before I knew it. I was so excited. I was half afraid to look Brian in the eye, though, in case I burst into tears. I kept saying to myself 'Keep it together, keep it together'."

Last Saturday saw the pair tie the knot at St Patrick's Church in Curtlestown. The ceremony was attended by 120 of their closest family and friends. This week sees VIP magazine featuring a 14-page spread on the wedding, with the entire event filmed for an RTE documentary.


Top model Pippa donned a flowing creation by Monique Lhuillier, who counts Hollywood A-listers Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon and Hilary Swank among her clients. She bought the dress during a shopping trip in New York.

The groom wore a sharp Tommy Hilfiger suit while the chief bridesmaid Niamh Martin and bridesmaid Avril Flynn wore dresses in the palest of salmon pink by Ethan and Eliza.

Among the guests were Rosanna Davison and her boyfriend Wesley Quirke, Andrea Roche and her friend Rob White, as well as Ireland soccer star Robbie Keane and wife Claudine.
