Celebrity endorsement for Wedding Dress Ink came via twitter after celebrity model and TV personality Pippa O’ConnorOrmond tweeted to all her 26,000 followers on the night of her birthday. My brand new twitter account @WeddingDressInk was like a lightening rod for the next two hours as lots of Pippa’s avid followers reacted to her endorsement.

Creating a bespoke wedding dress illustration for TV presenter Brian Ormond to give his wife Pippa O’ConnorOrmond was really hush hush. Like most dresses illustrated at the Wedding Dress Ink studio, the portraits are a gift and therefore always handled discreetly.

Brian commissioned his ‘Ink’ last month as a birthday gift and surprised Pippa on her return yesterday from Barcelona, just in time to celebrate. The photographs supplied by Brian were gorgeous, Pippa on her wedding day in the grounds of the awesome Powerscourt Garden’s near my studio in Enniskerry, Co.Wicklow. Although those photographs are private, like every other bride’s pictures that I receive, lucky I was able to find some published on the web to share!

The Monique Lhuiller dress was elegant and romantic in every way. The wrap over sweetheart bodice and princess style full wavy skirt with a celtic style shimmering belt. Pippa kept her bouquet of white roses simple and had peep-toe Jimmy Choos underneath the full skirt.

“Thanks Audrey, the illustration is amazing.” Pippa

Thanks Pippa and Brian for sharing your joy, delighted you loved your bespoke Wedding Dress Ink gift!

Warm Wishes,
