We’re still gushing over the images that emerged of Irish fashion and beauty blogger Suzanne Jackson’s wedding to Dylan O’Connor – they were STUNNING! Although we absolutely loved Sue’s dramatic Hailey Paige gown and show-stopping glamorous look, there was one other particular look that stood out – Sue’s mum MOB look!

Suzanne (owner of blog and beauty brand SoSueMe) married her long-term partner Dylan, in a beautiful ceremony in Skerries Church on Saturday, followed by a lavish reception at the five-star Powerscourt Hotel in Co. Wicklow. In what was one of the most highly anticipated events in Ireland, Suzanne shared intimate snaps to her 215K Instagram followers of the happy couple posing in front of the church under a beautiful floral arch.

In a few of the snaps shared on the morning of the wedding, we couldn’t help but notice Sue’s mum Susan Jackson in a stunning full-length rose pink coloured dress. Looking every inch the glamorous mother-of-the-bride, Susan wowed in her gorgeous pink dress with matching jacket from Donegal’s McElhinney’s bridal rooms; the same place that Suzanne got her magnificent dress. Susan was certainly excited in the run up to the big day, sharing this snap on Instagram:

Due to Suzanne and Dylan having an exclusive deal with a magazine, we only just managed to get a glimpse of the bridal party and their looks. Describing Susan’s mother-of-the-bride outfit, the bridal department at McElhinney’s said:

“Alongside the beautiful bride was Suzanne’s mum Susan who looked stunning and she too was dressed by McElhinneys Occaisonwear Department in a bespoke soft dusky pink Fely Campo dress with matching gold baroque print jacket”.

Fely Campo is a Spanish occasion wear designer that designs pieces in themes of femininity, seriousness and elegance.
