Sarah Jessica Parker Surprises Bride at Irish Wedding

Newlyweds Maire and Peter O’Flynn recently celebrated their wedding at the beautiful Lough Eske Castle Hotel in County Donegal, Ireland. While the setting couldn’t be any more perfect for the Irish couple, some unexpected Hollywood flair was the cherry on top.

‘Sex and the City’ star, Sarah Jessica Parker, and her husband Matthew Broderick were dining at the venue’s restaurant for dinner with friends at the same time as the O’Flynn wedding.

After their meal, Parker asked hotel staff to find the bride for a one-on-one conversation.


“She sent some of the staff to get me from the dance floor just as she was leaving, and I went out and got a lovely picture with her and she was very kind,” Maire O’Flynn told BBC.

“She said that I looked beautiful and hoped that I was having a great day. She also mentioned that my bridesmaid looks fabulous, which was great… it was a nice addition to the day and added a bit of celebrity status to the occasion,” she continued.

Parker owns a holiday home in the nearby village of Kilcar, Ireland.
