We decided to elope so it had to be Gretna.
Anita Marquina, 45, and Gene Fulton, 56, of Leicester, got engaged just five months after meeting in their local Starbucks.
Golf shop owner Anita said: "There are so many people we could have invited to our wedding that we decided to invite no one and just run away and get married.
"As soon as you think about running away to marry, you think of Gretna and when I had a look I thought it was lovely.
"So we are eloping with just Gene's best man and his wife, my son, my mum and hopefully my dad too.
"When we tell people we are running away to Gretna, everyone is delighted for us.
"It's the perfect place for our married life to begin."
