An engaged Irish couple with matching ink of their planned October wedding date were reportedly forced to postpone the fall nuptials because of the coronavirus.
Francis Donald, 26, and Fionnuala Kearney, 24, got engaged in 2017, and while later partying in Turkey got matching tattoos of their October 16, 2020 wedding date in roman numerals, the bride-to-be told The Sun.
“We strolled past a tattoo salon and we were tipsy, so thought it was a great idea to get matching tattoos,” Kearney said.
“It’s funny because we were being extra careful to make sure we got the roman numerals correct, and the staff were teasing us, saying: ‘Are you sure that’s the right date?’”
Kearney told the outlet she was “devastated” upon learning her big day would be pushed back — rendering the couple’s tattoos inaccurate.
“If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry!” Kearney said.
Kearney, who met her fiance while studying at Ulster University in 2015, said their wedding day has already been rescheduled for next April.
She said they plan to do something “memorable” on their original wedding day to honor their tattoos.
