Helen ties the knot in style as Johnny goes smart casual
In March, Irish fashion designer Helen Cody married her other half, architect Rory Murphy, in a low-key affair in Dublin’s City Hall.
The bride wore a Suzie Monaghan cashmere cardigan and one of her own embroidered silk organza skirts.
“It was the most magical day spent with our closest friends and family — from the celestial voices of Anuna, to the stunning Appassionata blooms, in what we think is the most beautiful venue,” she said, referring to City Hall. Helen and Rory walked through the streets afterwards to La Maison in Castle Market for an intimate dinner “to celebrate a very special day”.
And on May 17, Johnny Ronan’s son Johnny Junior and his beautiful girlfriend, Suzanne Taylor, were married in Girona, Catalonia.
The dress code was described as ‘‘smart casual”.
Obviously, trying to get the bearded buccaneer from Carrick-on-suir, Mr Johnny Ronan Senior, into anything other than casual would have required some doing — especially in sunny Spain.
In any event, it all kicked off at 4pm at Castell d’emporda, a plush hotel in the Costa Brava hills.
