With the devastating news of Graham Connell's recent passing, we join the industry in remembering him for his incredible spirit. He was a true legend and will be missed terribly by all. We share this statement from Matteo Maggini at Morilee.
It is with heavy hearts that we are saying goodbye to Graham Connell. Graham was a much-loved and respected part of the bridal community, and his loss is being felt throughout the industry and reaches far beyond. Our thoughts are very much with his family, friends and colleagues at this time.
On behalf of his Morilee and Ronald Joyce family, we have the following words from Matteo Maggini:
It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of our dearest Graham.
Graham was more than a colleague, he was a dedicated member of our family and a father figure for many of us who had the privilege of working with him. For over 17 years, Graham worked with passion and commitment to help build our UK and International business, earning the industry’s respect. Under his leadership, the company grew exponentially to become one of the world’s leading Bridal & Occasion Wear manufacturers.
Graham was incredibly devoted to his family. He loved to organise his family trips and share stories of these holidays with us all. His other passions were fishing, aviation photography, and running.
His loss leaves a void that can never be filled. In these challenging times, we extend our deepest sympathies to Graham’s family for their loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.
