Hardy has married Caleigh Ryan at a farm in Nashville, Tennessee.

The 32-year-old country music star tied the knot with his fiancee on Saturday (29.1022) in a romantic ceremony at Diamond Creek Farms in front of friends and family as well as musicians including Dierks Bentley, Brantley Gilbert, Morgan Wallen, Lauren Alaina, RaeLynn, Ernest, Lindsay Ell and Travis Denning.

The ceremony was conducted by Hardy's close friend Smith Ahnquist.

The reception featured two miniature donkeys carrying beers to guests, who were invited to get themselves a permanent reminder of the couple's big day at Hardy's Tattoo Shop. One of the guests who decided to get some new ink was Caleigh mum Sheri. They were served a buffet dinner of Southern and Italian food and the newly-weds had their first dance to 'Faithfully' by Journey. Later in the evening, they both joined the wedding band to sing along to a cover of 'Fancy' by Reba McEntire.

The bride also took part in the traditional throwing of the bouquet, which was caught by singer Lauren Alaina.

At the end of the night, the newly-married couple made their exit in a vintage truck which was decorated with sparklers and empty beer cans tied to the back.

Speaking ahead of the ceremony, the groom told PEOPLE.com: "We're going to write our own vows and do them privately. We want the ceremony to be like 30 seconds long. We just want to have a big party for everybody. I'm trying to avoid having a complete meltdown in front of everyone, and I don't think I could get through vows at the altar, and she's the same. The vows will be for us. It doesn't have to be for everybody else."

The couple met on social media and started dating in early 2018. They were together for three years before the 'Wait In The Truck'' star proposed last summer at the The Lyric theatre in Oxford, Mississippi where they first met.
