Beautiful Bride Hayley says of the couples love story and their gorgeous Fife Wedding…
How did you meet?
We met at Graeme’s brothers wedding in November 2016.
I (Hayley) had known Fraser for about 10 years but had never ‘bumped’ into his brother before…until he opened up the taxi door to me arriving at Fraser and Carley’s wedding.
My heart skipped a beat, but he played it cool the whole wedding and never really showed much interest.
It was a month later when we then walked straight into each other off the tube in Old Street Station – it was certainly a sliding doors moment!
Tell us about the Proposal…
It was so perfect, as I’m sure all proposals are in the end.
Graeme had been working out in Thailand for 9 months and so I had gone over to meet him for a summer holiday, and we made plans to go to a luxury resort in Bali for a few days to relax.
I did have a bit of suspicion something might happen because his friends and my family were all acting a bit strange.
Anyway, Graeme wanted to still try and surprise me but I was making it really difficult but suggesting we do all the ‘romantic’ activities available to us through our hotel, to the point where he had to tell me to stop suggesting things because he had them all booked!
So when I then suggested we get up at 5am to go and watch the sunrise, he saw that as the perfect moment to pop the question and I never saw that coming at all.
I think my answer was No, no way, get up while laughing, not quite the answer he was hoping for but I eventually said yes.
Tell us about your wedding planning journey…
We did speak about what we wanted for our Wedding the night we got engaged, so had an idea what we both wanted.
It was a few months later when we looked at venues in the Fife area.
Cambo House had been the top of my list for Fife wedding venues just from the website, and when we went to see it Graeme agreed there really wasn’t another option – it was everything we wanted!
I very quickly, in true bride style, got the big things on a list to start ticking them off.
Graeme was also very involved, but he’d probably tell you that I was still bossing in around with most decisions.
I’m also probably a bit more creative than he is, so had a vision of how it would all come together…almost like I’d been planning it since I was 5 years old or something!
Any special touches/DIY?
The venue is so breath taking it really wasn’t in need of too much decoration.
We got married in the walled garden, moved to the courtyard for starters and then headed up the woodland area for cocktails, the main courses and obviously the bar and dancing.
I did organise for friends to run the bar, all of whom are skilled bar tenders, so they had a lot of fun creating cocktails for everyone, probably a few too many in the end as these were served before dinner!
Another of our friends also created our order or service, which we made into the style of VIP festival lanyards which was quite a different way to keep our guests updated with all the information for the day.
What was the theme /colour palette of your Big Day?
We wanted it to be kept quite natural, I had chosen Navy blue for my bridesmaids and the groomsmen were in there own kilts or tartan trousers which kept it colourful but complimentary too.
Other than that, we didn’t have a set colour theme as such but had chosen a fun/festival style vibe so that nothing was too formal.
The flowers were all kept very natural, eucalyptus leaves, olive branches, creamy colours with rose gold as a highlight.
What was the best bit of your day?
That’s such a tough question because so0 much of it was just perfect.
Graeme says that for him, it was the moment we walked back into the stretch tent before dinner as we were announced and welcomes as the New Mr & Mrs Kyle.
I think mine would be the moment I stopped at the top of the aisle in the walled garden, could see Graeme waiting for me at the end, surrounded by all our friends and family.
I burst into tears, not very glamorous or bride like but it was a moment of overwhelming emotion, I’ll never forget that few seconds.
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
Don’t over think it, on the day all that matters is the both of you.
Guests always enjoy themselves, especially if you are too, just make sure there is plenty of drink and tasty food and nothing can really go wrong.
I don’t think I thought at any point throughout the if all the detail we had tried to organised actually happened or not, and maybe some of it didn’t… but we are glad we’ll never know!
