Lyndsey and Jimmy’s wedding at Hengrave Hall – Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary

Further congratulations this week to the lovely Lyndsey and Jimmy on your first Wedding Anniversary.  We hope that you have a brilliant day and get the chance to look through all your photos and that they help you to remember all the magical moments of your wedding.  You two are the most sweet and kind couple and we wish for you many happy wedding anniversaries in the future.  We thoroughly enjoyed photographing your day at Hengrave Hall last April on an unseasonally warm and sunny day.  As you can see from the website we adore your images and have used many of them on here. I wish we could have your wedding all over again and I can’t wait for baby Reynolds to arrive so I can see you all again.  Here’s a link to Lyndsey and Jimmy’s full wedding story in case you want to have a read and a photo of the two of them

Sarah and Tom’s Wedding at Spains Hall – Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary

Many congratulations this week to the lovely Sarah and Tom who are celebrating their first wedding anniversary.  We photographed Sarah and Tom’s wedding at Spains Hall last April and had a glorious Spring day to enjoy the beautiful grounds that Spains Hall has to offer.  I absolutely adored the afternoon tea wedding breakfast that they had organised with all the vintage crockery and their seating plan (which Tom made) and their finishing touches were stunning.  We will be thinking about your day and you both on your anniversary. To read more about their day follow the link to their full blog story here and below is a photo of the two of them

Suffolk Wedding Photographer looking for couples for a ‘Rock The Frock’ shoot – could it be you?

This is something I have been musing over for a while now and this year I’d really like to do a handful of ‘Rock The Frock’ or ‘Trash The Dress’ style shoots.  I have a lot of ideas already but am open to suggestions if you’ve got something you’d like to do.  The session would be free and you can have the photos afterwards all I would ask is that you’re adventurous in what we can do and that you’re happy to give up your time for free and allow me to use the photos afterwards.  If you’d be interested in taking part in one of these shoots please let me know.  It isn’t likely to be until the later part of the year when I get them organised.  The last ‘Trash The Dress’ shoot we did was up at Holkham on the Norfolk Coast.  Here’s a few photos of the brave couple (it was their idea to go into the sea).

I look forward to hearing from some of you soon

Hintlesham Hall Bridal Photoshoot update by Suffolk Wedding Photographer Hayley Denston Photography

Well a few weeks ago as those of you who follow this regularly know I did a bridal photoshoot for Your East Anglian Wedding Magazine.  It was a long day with lots of changes to hair, make-up and outfits and being the middle of winter there was also little natural light to work with.

This was a very different shoot for me as understandably the dress supplier didn’t want me to take the wonderful Katie (our bride model for the day) outside in case the dresses got dirty.  On a usual wedding day I would have gone outside as you only get your wedding day once and the photos and memories will last a lifetime (plus the dress is likely to be dry cleaned after the day anyway).  I would have also got to be a lot more adventurous as an actual wedding shoot for me is about capturing the personalities and emotions involved rather than just lovely pics!

I would have loved to have used some of the grounds that Hintlesham Hall has to offer (as they’re stunning, I had loads of ideas and they would have looked fabulous in the photos) however I had to respect the dress companies wishes and so it was all indoors.  My next shoot for Your East Anglian Wedding magazine is hopefully going to be a ‘Rock the Frock’ one (so if you’re interested in giving up your time and getting dressed up again after your wedding day please let me know and I’ll add you to my list of couples keen to do this – it would be free and you can have the photos afterwards – I’ll add some more about this in a separate post!)

Going back to Hintlesham Hall and the bridal shoot here are a selection of photos for you to look at

Hayley Denston Photography engraved USB sticks and boxes arrive

Yay, after a long time waiting our personalised USB sticks and boxes have arrived this week.  We are certain these are going to be hugely popular and are in the process of swapping from discs to USBs (our couples who have booked on a disc package already will be given the choice on what they’d prefer).

Here’s a quick couple of photos of what they look like.  Now just to capture all your wonderful weddings so that we can put lots of happy memories onto these sticks  :-)
