After meeting in a pub in Roscommon just before the first Covid lockdown in 2020 and falling madly in love, real wedding couple Tina and Alex tied the knot in a deeply personal elopement, just the two of them. While they initially thought they would get married in Gretna Green in Scotland, they fell in love with Juniper Barn in Co. Sligo and it was their own romantic world for their blissful special day which was full of colour, flowers and heart and was beautifully lensed by Pink Lime Studios. While Alex opted for slick separates and Converse, it was a stunning sustainable moment from radiant bride Tina who wore a floral embroidered tulle gown by Needle & Thread that she sourced on Adverts.

Her bouquet of vibrant flowers which were picked from the gardens on her wedding morning complemented her ethereal gown magically. Alex is a real horse lover, in fact his gorgeous stead Earnie played a part in helping him propose by wearing a bridle with “Will you marry me” on the side. The couple adore nature so their outdoor ceremony took place by a circle of trees where they exchanged vows and horseshoes to represent their unique love story. Their something old? China cups that were a wedding gift of Tina’s aunt over 60 years ago and they toasted to their happily ever after by sipping champagne from them. Their families were absolutely thrilled when they revealed their happy news the next day with ‘just married’ cupcakes!
