Mayrhofen Ski Wedding – Bec & Dan

Sometimes people come into your life, and just make everything brighter.

Bec, Dan and I first connected in the autumn of 2015, before they had even found a wedding venue or set a date. The one thing Bec was sure of was that she wanted to ski on her wedding day. We met in a pub in London and we chatted about weddings, about our pets and of course about skiing. All whilst Dan shrugged off my bad jokes about snowbladers. We probably could have stayed gossiping for hours but trains called.

We chatted often over email or WhatsApp about wedding plans and soon what was just an idea started to become a reality, and as the weeks and months went by, I think I was almost as excited as they were about this day finally arriving.

A Mayrhofen Ski Wedding

And last Friday, the 17th March 2017 was that day. On St Patrick’s day in honour of Bec’s Irish heritage, Bec and Dan, surrounded by their wonderful families and friends, became Mr & Mrs Turner.

I’m so excited to share with you their wedding story. The story of two of the kindest, loveliest people I have had the pleasure of meeting, who became husband and wife on the top of a mountain.

Bec and Dan, I seriously love you guys and I’m going to miss all of the little wedding updates. So please start planning the 5 year vow renewal soon ok. 😉
