Retribution star Emma opted for a boho bridal look in a plunging satin ivory gown with puff sleeves, paired with a floral headpiece and long beaded necklace.

Irvine revealed that he was engaged to Emma in April 2022.

The twice-divorced Irvine announced the news – with a photo of his Scottish fiancée showing off the emerald star he proposed to marry.

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

Edinburgh-born Irvine said in September 2020 that the couple were enjoying an ‘old-fashioned courtship’ after meeting for coffee remotely during lockdown.

Irvine divorced American woman Beth Quinn in 2017 after nearly 15 years together. His marriage to first wife Anne Antsy ended in divorce in 2003.

Their engagement announcement came when he made a typically blunt attack on the Scottish Tories after they channeled his cult novel into a local election poster.

He invited the party to be “f***ed” after it revealed an attack on the SNP government based on the famous “choose life” monologue also featured in the 1995 film.

In last night’s post, the Scottish Tories broke into Nicola Sturgeon’s party and attacked her record and alleged hypocrisy in the office, including ‘decriminalization of heroin’ – the drug whose use is a recurring theme in Trainspotting.

Last September, Scotland effectively decriminalized drugs in a major police upheaval, advising officers to only issue a ‘recorded police warning’ to anyone they catch in possession of Class A.

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

Last year, Scottish independence supporter Boris Johnson called it a “gormless toff.”

Welsh criticized Johnson after the prime minister openly criticized plans for a European Super League, calling it ‘harmful to football’.

In a response to Twitter, he wrote: ‘A man of conviction. A man of principles. A man who has the deepest interests of the game and its supporters at heart.

‘No. A gormless bastard whose advisers have told him it’s not popular.’
