“I’ll be just back from filming around Europe so I’m looking forward to completely relaxing and leaving that end of things in their capable hands,

“What we’ve gone for with the food is a very relaxed, family-style dinner rather then silver service,” he told the RTE Guide.

Meanwhile in the weeks before his wedding – Donal has admitted he will be filming a new series for the Food Network.

“I’ve just signed a two series deal – the first series will see us going to 12 European cities,” he revealed.
