'Love knows no reason, no boundaries, no distance'...These words got a new lease of life when an Irish man crossed the seas to marry his Indian girlfriend according to the Hindu custom and tradition in Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur.

According to a News 18 report, the bride Tanvita Srivastava a native of Gorakhpur, had gone to Ireland to study in 2013, where she met her now husband Andrew O'Neill.

Tanvita met Andrew through her friend while studying at UCC College and University in Dublin. After completing her studies, Tanvita started a job in Ireland and her relationship with Andrew became closer.

 So when they decided to take the next step in their journey, Tanvita expressed her wish to get married to Andrew according to Hindu customs and rituals which he agreed to it.

Andrew with his family flew down to India and took part in every ritual of the wedding. Andrew also rode a mare to the reception venue and was reportedly dancing to beats of dhol with his friends and family.

Tanvita and Andrew got married as per Hindu customs in the presence of both their families and friends.

Tanvita's family was happy with her decision and warmly welcomed Andrew into their family.
