Real Wedding – Hayley & Jarryd, St Kilda VIC
Stunning St Kilda was the perfect location for Hayley and Jarryd to seal the deal in front of all their loved ones.
In front of a lush arbour on a romantic rooftop, this perfect pair exchanged vows in a sweet ceremony. Hayley was a vision in her Jane Hill gown, and while it wasn’t the gown she initially imagined herself in, it couldn’t have suited the occasion more beautifully.
They wanted a relaxed and fun cocktail affair and this was achieved with simple, yet sublime styling and a cake that completely wowed.
Capping the night off with a full dance floor and some champagne showers, Jerome Cole was the talent behind the lens.
In Hayley’s words…
Jarryd and I met at the blue diamond day races. I was there with my family and he was there with his friends. Jarryd recognized my face from Tinder and sent me a message. He met my whole family that day.
When he let me order his breakfast for him. There always seemed to be two items on the breakfast menu that I wanted to try but couldn’t decide between. He would always let me order the other item I wanted to try, for him, and then I would end up eating half of this breakfast.
It was our anniversary and he had asked me on the Wednesday if I wanted to go out for dinner on Friday to celebrate. As it was organised last minute I thought it was going to be fairly low key. I got home from work, went for a run and was baking muffins in my tracksuit when Jarryd came out and said we had to be ready for dinner in 20 minutes. I shoved my hair in a ponytail and put a summer dress on. I didn’t put in any effort as it was the last thing I was expecting.
When we were in the car Jarryd said we had to stop by the beach first as he had an anniversary gift to give and I would use it at the beach.
When we got to the beach, he handed me a two-page letter and then proposed. I was so shocked and mad because I would have put in effort into my appearance if I had known.
Fairly relaxing and stress free. We made all the decisions easily
We wanted a very relaxed and fun cocktail wedding. As soon as the ceremony was over, we wanted the party to start and have a good time.
I only booked in a dress trial at one place Jane Hill as I knew I loved their dresses. The dress I chose in the end was the last dress I tried on – I didn’t even pick it! Just before I left I told the assistant I wanted to try on something completely different for fun and I walked out and my mum and bridemaids were like ‘ohhhh I think this is the dress’.

No, the day was so relaxing and chilled, everything went to plan! I was almost waiting for something to go wrong, but nothing did which was great!
How much everything costs!
Words of wisdom.
If you don’t set a budget, then you can’t go over.
