Her ethereal wedding gowns have been donned by famous people around the world and her whimsical engagement ring collection with Hearts On Fire have decorated the fingers of many. Hayley Paige’s love for life is unmistakable in every design she creates and she can’t get enough of it – she lives and breathes romance.

UNRESERVED caught a glimpse of Paige’s enchanting side as she reveals her inspiration, wedding must-have and much more.

Best honeymoon destination?

I would have to go with Hawaii. The island of Maui is just a little slice of hula heaven.

Favourite way to relax?

I’ve always used fitness and workout as a go-to method for redirecting my mindset. I also love enjoying a nice bottle of wine with my fiancé and playing with our bulldog, Winnie.

Jeans and a tee or a cocktail dress?


The three things that describe your relationship?

Vulnerable, humour-filled and playful.

Are you a morning or night person?

Definitely a night owl! Hoot-hoot likes getting up early? Not me.

What would you spend the most on?

With regard to a wedding, I have to say the ring, the dress, and the cocktails for our guests.

What would you spend the least on?

Perhaps the invitations? I believe in being sustainable where you can, so I would likely substitute fancy paper invitations for a digital message.

What inspires you?

I believe where focus goes, energy flows, so I try to focus on inspirations of joy and elation. Each engagement ring in this collection is inspired by an iconic Hayley Paige gown, so it’s all about those special nuances of design and personality.

Most memorable date?

4 May 2018 – when Conrad and I first met through a mutual friend! Funny story but that date has always been one of my personal favourites because I’m a big space nerd: “May the 4th be with you”.

Favourite song?

Shine On You Crazy Diamond by Pink Floyd.

Favourite movie?

Sleeping Beauty, the 1959 Disney version, of course.

What is your ideal bridal makeup look?

I love a good rose gold moment with winged eyeliner, flashy lashes, soft contouring, big blushing lips, and an unexpected splash of shimmer.

Flats or heels?

Gotta go with heels.

A lover or a fighter?

Lover…forever and ever.
