Gerry Ryan’s daughter Bonnie has shared some “little moments of magic” before she finally marries her longtime love John Greenhalgh in central Italy.

The 29-year-old is set to say “I do” at the quaint old St Augustine's church in the village of La Machi tomorrow, the exact same spot that her older sister, RTÉ 2fm DJ Lottie, tied the knot with her husband Fabio Aprile 5 years ago.

Lottie will be taking on the role of maid of honour for Bonnie’s big day, while their sister Babette will also a bridesmaid.

And her eldest brother Rex will be giving her away after escorting her down the aisle, as he did with Lottie back in 2017.

The celebrations have been in full swing since the wedding party flew out to Italy on Thursday, with the rehearsal dinner set to take place later tonight.

But before that, Bonnie and John hosted their guests for a Serenata, an Italian tradition which typically sees the groom serenade the bride under her window.

In some social media videos, Bonnie can be seen searching for John in the crowd from her balcony as the crowd cheers below.

The influencer stunned in custom-made white satin dress from Etsy complete with a show-stopping bow places on her lower back.

Describing the night as “a dream,” Bonnie shared some snaps from the party, including the spread of delicious snacks that were laid out, from pasta dishes to plates stocked full of cheese.

“Little moments of magic... ready to rock,” she said.

Back in March, Bonnie and John officially tied the knot at a civil ceremony in Dublin but are saving the Italian wedding ceremony as their main event.

The couple and their guests enjoyed cocktails in the five-star Merrion Hotel followed by dinner in The Ivy restaurant on Dawson Street.
