'Big Brother' star Brian Dowling is tying the knot today in an Irish star-studded ceremony with his long term partner Arthur Gourounlian
Brian Dowling is getting married today (30.07.15).
The former 'Big Brother' winner and host is tying the knot to choreographer Arthur Gourounlian at a country house close to Dublin, Ireland, in what will be the country's first celebrity gay wedding.
Brian uploaded a series of photographs to social media site Instagram last night (29.07.15) and revealed that his former 'Big Brother' housemate and pal Narinder Kaur is one of his trio of bridesmaids.
He captioned the post: "Sssshhhh! I'm getting married in the morning. Wedding Fun (sic)"
And Brian - who has slimmed down for the big day - invited a host of his famous friends to celebrate with him including fellow Irishman Louis Walsh, married TV presenters Vernon Kay and Tess Daly and ex-Girls Aloud singer Kimberly Walsh.
The pair were legally married in London earlier this year but as gay marriage recently became legal in Brian's native Ireland, the couple decided to make it official there too.
Brian, 37, told The Sun newspaper: "We did it in London as we didn't know how the law would go in Ireland. We wanted to make sure we got it right.
"All my friends and family are coming. Our suits are by Tom Ford they are tight fitted. Especially at the back."
