Kourtney Kardashian, 42, and Travis Barker, 46, certainly made headlines by saying ‘I do’ at an impromptu wedding ceremony in Las Vegas on Monday. 

And in true Vegas fashion, the pair got married by none other than an Elvis Presley impersonator, who has now revealed inside details from their ceremony.

The impersonator, who has been identified as Dean Diamond, opened up about the ceremony – revealing that the pair didn’t have any vows of their own, so used ‘Elvis vows’.

While talking with The Sun, Dean shared that Travis was ‘speaking with his eyes’, saying: ‘He wasn’t saying as much as her, but he was speaking with his eyes, the way he was looking at her like, ‘Wow, I get to marry you”‘

The happy couple giggled as they entered the One Love Wedding Chapel, as Dean described them as ‘kids in a candy shop walking in’. 

Despite a drunken night, Dean revealed that the pair were very clear when saying their vows – with a lot of meaning to the ceremony.
