Botanical Gardens are pretty stunning in themselves, and make a real a showstopper of a wedding venue. Add that to a bride and groom channelling all the glamour of old Hollywood and you get a hands-down winner of a day.
Morgaine and Kyle met via a dating app. Kyle was the first person she spoke to – and the last! They said, “It was really easy and we were absolutely perfect for each other… It’s quite creepy when we look back at it! We don’t really believe in things like fate but maybe there was a bit of that sprinkled into it! After our first date at the pub, it was clear that this wasn’t just an ordinary meet and greet – there was a ridiculous amount of humour and affection. We both knew this was unlike any date we’d experienced.”
It was actually Morgaine who proposed to Kyle, he explained that “She thought, ‘Well, if he can ask, why can’t I?’ so she bought me some vintage onyx cufflinks from eBay and started planning the proposal. One of our favourite bands, Flowertruck, was due to play just before Christmas 2016, so Morgaine got in touch with them and asked if they would like to be part of the proposal. They were thrilled, and she arranged for them to stop mid-gig to announce that she had a question to ask me. Once they said that she (in the middle of the crowd) dropped to her knee and asked me if I’d marry her. I said yes, and the rest is history! We used this story as part of our celebrant Nathan’s intro during the ceremony.”
