Today FM's Mairead Farrell has revealed her fiance Louis Ronan is organising their honeymoon but won't tell her where they are going.

The pair are set to wed in the coming weeks but Mairead has no idea where she'll be jetting off to with her new husband.

Not only is he organising their getaway but he's been a really hands-on groom.

"Louis has organised an awful lot of the wedding.

"I've been in charge of the music and I haven't picked the church music yet, the order of what we're doing it in. I don't know where I'm going, it's a surprise," she told the Ian Dempsey Show.

The couple became engaged last August after three years together and will be exchanging vows in an intimate venue in a Tipperary on June 5.

Mairead will be joined by Ian and her Today FM colleagues Anton Savage and Paul Collins for her big day.

She recently revealed her eight-year-old son Dara will be taking on a special role for the occasion.

"Little Dara is best man," she previously explained. "He's been practising his speech at home, I'm the only one who's heard it … he wrote it himself.

"They had a stag party here in Dublin. Dara organised it - they went to the secret cinema across the road from Brooks Hotel to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there was about 12 of them on it."

The 35-year-old says most of the wedding is planned and she's "excited" to walk down the aisle.

"We're nearly there [with the plans] but I do think we're probably still going to be doing things the week of it," she said.

"We've all the main things done like food, music and the dress - all those boxes have been ticked," she told the Herald.
