The most magical moments of working in a bridal boutique from the women behind Myrtle Ivory

It's coming to an end.

Yesterday, it was announced that the prestigious bridal boutique, Myrtle Ivory, will close its doors at the end of next month.

The shop was co-founded by Marina O Riordan and Suzanne Mills in 2007, with Marina and her daughter Meghann working in the boutique every day.

The store, which is located on Dublin's Anne's Lane, has found gowns for some of Ireland's most famous brides including Amy Huberman and Rosanna Davidson.

We spoke to Meghann about the most magical moments of working in the boutique - and while memorable, they're bittersweet.

Speaking of the 10 most inspiring and marvellous times she has experienced, Meghann said: "Gosh we have really had so many magical moments with our brides."

"We’ve had brides whom have had to sadly bring their weddings forward for fear of a beloved ill relative not making it to their wedding date - and the joy it brings when it all comes together and we’ve been able to expedite their dress."
