Retribution star Emma went for a bohemian bridal look in a plunging ivory satin dress with puff sleeves, paired with a floral headpiece and a long pearl necklace.

She wore her blonde locks in a loose wavy style and opted for minimal makeup in images she shared on her own social media, alongside the caption: ‘Today I married love of my life.”

In one image, Irvine, who wore a pale blue shirt and gray suit for the occasion, wrapped his arms around her bridge and kissed her on the lips in an adorable show of affection.

Elsewhere, the newlyweds walked down the street hand-in-hand as Irvine pulled a suitcase alongside him.

Irvine revealed he got engaged to Emma in April 2022.

Twice-divorced Irvine broke the news – with a photo of his Scottish bride showing off the emerald sparkler he proposed with.

‘My God. She said yes. P***ing wet day in Scotland but she said yes. So f**k everything else. I’ve never been happier in my life,” the elated star wrote.

Edinburgh-born Irvine said in September 2020 that the couple enjoyed ‘old-fashioned courtship’ after meeting for socially distanced coffees during lockdown.

Irvine separated from his American wife Beth Quinn in 2017 after almost 15 years together. His marriage to his first wife Anne Antsy ended in divorce in 2003.

The announcement of their engagement came as he launched a characteristically brutal attack on Scottish Tories after they featured his cult novel on a local election poster.

He called on the party to ‘fuck off’ after unveiling an attack on the SNP government based on the famous ‘Choose Life’ monologue which also featured in the 1995 film.

In last night’s message, the Scottish Tories tore into Nicola Sturgeon’s party, attacking its record and perceived hypocrisy in power, including the ‘decriminalisation of heroin’ – the drug whose use is a theme recurring in Trainspotting.

Last September Scotland effectively decriminalized drugs in a major policing shake-up that sees officers advised to only issue a ‘recorded police warning’ to anyone they catch in possession of Class A.

It is not the first time that Welsh, who was born in Edinburgh but lives in the United States, has attacked the Tories.

Last year, the Scottish independence supporter called Boris Johnson a ‘toff without a gorm’.

Welsh slammed Johnson after the Prime Minister openly criticized plans for a European Super League, calling it “damaging for football”.

Responding on Twitter, he wrote: “A man of conviction. A man of principle. A man who has the deepest interests of the game and its supporters at heart.

‘N/A. A throatless tof who advisers told him was unpopular.
