The billionaire’s son, Ross Desmond married his beautiful bride in front of the cream of London society, famous footballer Jamie Rednapp, the Made in Chelsea cast and his famous sister-in-law Andrea Corr.

Reality star Millie Mackintosh who married popstar Professor Green two years ago posted pictures to her thousands of twitter fans of the wedding ceremony which took place at Adare Manor Hotel in Co Limerick.

Giving a sneak peek inside the uber-glamorous wedding she uploaded a snap of the ornate table settings with the comment: “Just wow! Bring it on #TheDesmonds2015”.

The 24-year-old was joined by other members of the Made in Chelsea cast including co-star Rosie Fortescue at the wedding bash in the Limerick village. Locals at Ballingarry were surprised at the lavishly decorated church in Ballingarry when they arrived for the holy communion service earlier in the day.

“People knew there was a huge amount of flowers in the church and there were black security vans all around — a lot more than normal for a communion ceremony. But the wedding was taking place shortly afterwards”, said one local.

“Some of the kids coming out of the communion ceremony ended up getting their photo taken with Jamie Rednapp who was one of the first to arrive. We had heard earlier in the morning how some of the wedding planners were asking where a helicopter could land next to the church,” the local said.

The society couple had a lavish ceremony in the five- star estate which has recently been snapped up by racing magnate JP McManus, who is a close friend of Dermot Desmond.

Ross’s brother, Brett walked down the aisle six years ago when he tied the knot with Andrea Corr.
