Weddings are supposed to be full of love, fun, and celebration, but this bride almost had the worst and saddest day of her life if she didn’t rise above the grief.
A Serious Relationship
27-year-old Kayley Stead and 24-year-old Kallum Norton had been together since 2018, and last December 2020, Kallum finally asked his partner to marry him.
They Were Excited
The couple had months of preparations and Kayley spent her life savings for their wedding which was taking place on September 15, 2022.
Kallum Ran Away
One of Kayley’s bridesmaids hid her phone when they found out from one groomsman that Kallum had already run away, and when Kayley saw her phone, there was a missed call from her groom’s mother so she called her and learned about everything.
Life Goes On
Kayley painfully told her hairdresser, videographer, and parents that the wedding was off, but her videographer tried to cheer her up and told her to just carry on because she had already spent all her money, so why not just enjoy the day?
The photographer asked Kayley to have a picture in the garden and instead of a newlywed’s photo, they took a photo of her in her beautiful wedding dress.
Kayley’s groomsmen and bridesmaids joined her as she walked in the entrance. They sang and danced along to Lizzo’s “Good as Hell”.
The guests were gloomy at first as they felt the pain of the betrayal, but Kayley’s positive attitude encouraged everyone to enjoy and celebrate the day with her.
Kayley is now living her life as a happy single lady and her best friend and maid of honor, Jordie Cullen, initiated a GoFundMe for her to recover the money that was lost, which was about $13,000.
Watch how Kayley proceeded with the wedding celebration in the video below.
