Mark White and his Venezuelan-born partner Kerwin Villabolos celebrated their relationship with a civil partnership in 2014 after they met four years ago in the now-defunct gay bar The Dragon on Dublin's George's Street.

However, since the marriage referendum passed in May 2015, the couple have been eager to get married.

"Civil partnership was amazing," said Mark

"It made us a unit but I think marriage offers so much more."

Kerwin added: "This is the real thing, we are as one."

Like most partners in Don't Tell The Bride, the couple have very different opinions of what they want their wedding to be, especially the theme.

Mark wants a 1916-themed wedding while Kerwin would prefer a "white, modern, sleek and classy" ceremony.

Tune in tonight at 9.30 on RTE to see how they get on.
