It felt like we had taken a trip out to the wild Wild West for Elle & Dans wedding day and I loved every minute of it!
Elle got ready at her parents house, where the reception would be held later that evening. They had set up are marquee with a homemade bar, leaners, fairy lights, custom signage, photo decorations, memorial tables, outdoor games - the works! She had cowboy boots & the most beautiful dried bouquet to match the dry landscape.
Dan also rocked some cowboy boots and had a pretty relaxed morning with the guys. The ceremony was held on a farm with dry grass, under the mountains and views as far as the eye can see. It was a really nice ceremony and in this setting it couldn’t have been more perfect for the pair.
Keen to get out of the heat we took the four wheel drives and went on a little adventure to an epic photo location in the mountains! With a picnic & cold beers for the bridal party it made a very enjoyable afternoon!
Back at the farm the reception kicked off with speeches (I have to mention Dan’s Pop, who wrote a speech to be read out at the wedding before he passed away a few weeks ago. It was the perfect mix of humour and heartwarming).
As the sunset went do we snuck out for some golden hour goodness before cake cutting (what do you think of that dessert table?!? 🤤) and dancing in the garden. Perfect way to party the night away.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Keys! 🥂
