Cam From ‘MAFS’ Read Out His Final Vows And They’re Really… Umm, Something
Last night, Cam Woods was spectacularly dumped by Lyndall Grace in the final vows episode of Married at First Sight.
The two seemed like a picture-perfect match when they first met during the experiment, both taken with each other on their wedding day. Over time, we slowly saw their relationship disintegrate, with Cam’s inability to communicate his emotions and show affection for Lyndall making her feel like a nagging wife.
The final dinner party saw Cam tell Lyndall that while he loved her, he wasn’t falling in love with her, leading to Lyndall leaving the room in tears.
So it wasn’t a total surprise that when it came to the final vows both parties were gearing up to say their farewells. Lyndall came in hot, tearing Cam a new one and finally unleashing what appeared to be weeks of pent-up emotion.

When it came to his turn, Lyndall cut Cam off which resulted in Cam throwing his vows at her feet and walking away.
But what was he planning to say? If you’re curious, Cam popped up on the Kyle and Jackie O show this morning to read out his final vows, as well as spill a little more MAFS goss ahead of the reunion episode on Sunday.
Here’s what Cam had to say about his final vows, the Tayla rumours, and where he stands with Lyndall now.
On what his final vows said:
“Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d marry a stranger in a quest to find love. I want to start with a thank you for going on this rollercoaster ride with me. From the moment I laid eyes on you, there was an instant connection. You had the warmest of smiles on your face walking down the aisle and I quickly learned you love life as much as I do and I felt that instant spark from day one and I was very intrigued to find out more. Did the experts get it right? Our wedding day was one for the books, filled with a lot of fun, laughs and surprised faces.
The wedding day I thought was unreal, you were a stunning bride, which brings us to the honeymoon and getting to know one another. I love that we have common interests. You’re an incredible singer and your enthusiasm for life and the way you love those closest to you is something I really admire. The more I learn about you the more I respect you. You’re kind and empathetic and have a very genuine heart. You always bring a positive vibe to every room, I really like that you give anything a go.
It’s been hard for both of us, away from friends and family and relying on one another for everything. We have been tested and the experience has been fast-tracked. It’s personally been a struggle for me being in the big city. That being said, I’ve really enjoyed living with you in Sydney for the past three months. You’ve made Sydney feel like the closest thing to home as possible so I really appreciate that. You’ve been extremely understanding and taught me the importance of being vulnerable. You made it comfortable for me to open up when that’s something I’ve always struggled to do.
Throughout this experiment, amongst all the good times we shared, I’ve had my doubts about the future. We live in different states, we live completely different lifestyles, and being together would mean one of us has to change our lifestyle completely. Another major concern is the way we handle our conflict. You say I can’t sit down and talk about tough times, but you never ask the question because you’re too scared of the answer. Communication has been an issue for us during multiple times in the experiment, including dinner parties, commitment ceremonies, and homestays.
I feel like you like to air our dirty laundry in a public environment which really pushes my buttons. Throughout this experiment, you’ve needed more affection and emotion from me — I’ve taken the time to reflect on why I haven’t been able to give you these things. I think these things flow naturally when you’re falling in love, which I’m not. I made a promise in my vows to be open and honest and I’d be lying to myself if I stood here today and said I could see this relationship working beyond today.
Lyndall, I really appreciate what you’ve taught me about myself, what I’ve learned from this experiment, and now what I know that I want in a life partner.”
On Tayla and that FaceTime:
“That FaceTime call, I had a few cans in me that night, I don’t think there’s anything there, it’s just me being full of piss, it’s just a little signature move I do. That FaceTime happened after the final vows and before the reunion. I got along with Tayla pretty good but I think Lyndall got along with Hugo pretty good too.”
On the Lyndall and Josh rumours:
“I haven’t really kept in contact with Lyndall. I received a phone call from Josh after all that went down and he wasn’t in a good place because he flew over to Perth to go visit her, only to find out Lyndall had a partner back in Sydney.”
Way to leave us on a cliffhanger, Cam!
Married at First Sight returns Sunday night at 7pm on Channel Nine.
