Hayley and Nick had known each other for a long time before Nick got up the courage to ask Hayley out. Problem was, she was planning on moving to London and had to break the news to him just as things were starting to go well. Hayley lived in London for two years, with Nick always taking the time and initiative to keep in touch. It was obvious to Nick that Hayley was “the one”, so a year into the separation Nick organised a trip around Europe, and of course made sure there was plenty of time to visit Hayley! They met in Prague (good choice Nick!) and sparks flew. They had a wonderful time and Hayley was back in Australia 6 weeks later.
Hayley says it was Nick that put all the effort in, and she is so glad he did. Who said guys can’t be romantic!
The couple chose Gibraltar Hotel Bowral in the Southern Highlands as the venue for their Wedding. Gibraltar Hotel is a great venue, as you can have your whole experience in one place. The day started with the bride and groom preparation in one of the luxurious rooms, with Hayley and her bridesmaids enjoying the enormous Bridal suite which has so much natural light which is a dream for makeup artists and photographers. There is a choice of indoor or outdoor locations for the Ceremony, and as it was such a wonderful Autumn day, it was a no brainer to go for outdoors by the lake, and we even got to hoon around in golf buggies for the best location images, while the guests had cocktails on the balcony. Not having to drive anywhere for photographs is so much more relaxing, and it also means your guests are not waiting for too long for you to come back to start the Reception fun.
