Hayley and Scott did something unexpected after saying 'I do'

They took a selfie! Scott had talked about taking a selfie at the altar ever since he and Hayley had become engaged.
"I'd almost forgotten about it until his best man pulled out his phone and handed it to Scott," explains Hayley. "In front of all of our guests we took the best selfie ever - it's our favourite photo of the day!" The couple swapped vows at St Peter Chanel Church in Hunters Hill, before celebrating with a reception at View by Sydney.

Hayley is an events planner, but that didn't stop her to-ing and fro-ing about the theme for the pair's nuptials. "In the end, I decided to pair Chinese ginger jars with copper accents, which wasn't something I'd seen at a wedding before," says Hayley. "At first it was quite hard to get my hands on a lot of copper, and I purchased bits and pieces like a crazy woman whenever I found something - I had everyone at work on the lookout too!" Hayley carried the copper accents and blue and white Oriental patterns through her invitations and table settings, and even had a copper-hued piñata.

To keep their guests entertained at the reception, the couple arranged for a piano performance and a game of Hayley and Scott-themed trivia. "I organised a little questionnaire, which was placed on each table with pencils. The questionnaire asked things like, 'What will be our favourite part of the honeymoon?' and 'When do you think Hayley and Scott will have kids?'" says the bride. "Everyone then popped their cards into the piñata, which we'll crack open on our one-year anniversary."
