Emma & Dean’s Wedding at Houchins by Suffolk Wedding Photographers Hayley Denston Photography

At the end of April we had the absolute pleasure of photographing Emma and Dean’s Wedding at Houchins. This was one of those weddings we’d been looking forward to for a very long time since Emma and Dean first met us at one of the Suffolk Wedding Show’s many years ago. These two are such a relaxed and happy couple that you couldn’t wish to work for nicer people. We were really hoping that they’d have a sunny day so that they could have the outdoor ceremony they were dreaming of but sadly it rained all day so we had to have the ceremony indoors. This didn’t dampen (please excuse the pun) anyone’s day though and we all had a wonderful time even throwing confetti in the drizzle!

Emma and Dean (although I suspect more Emma!) had planned so many gorgeous finishing touches to this day it was just wonderful and I’ve included lots of their details for you to look at in their photos below. I especially loved the cake which was scrummy (I managed to sample a bit before we left) and the rainbow colour scheme was gorgeous.

Houchins were superb as a venue and very organised, Jayson, Taylor and all the staff were very friendly and we can’t wait to come back to this venue more in the future. We also worked with two lovely videographers called Luke and Lorraine and we can’t wait to see what they’ve produced.

Emma was always going to look stunning in her dress and she beamingly smiled all day whilst Dean (also smiling all day) looked equally dashing in his suit. These two had lots of fun ideas including a jumping group shot, some penguin waddling and huddling (yes you read that right although I suspect the video will show this off a lot better than the photos can) and general messing about. I’ve never seen a bride and groom rock doing air guitar on their walk back down the aisle before and it will certainly stay in our memories for many years to come as well as a Fresh Prince of Bel Air rap delivered as one of the readings!

I could talk about this day over and over and we absolutely love their photos and the two of them. We’re certain they’ll have many happy married years ahead of them and we really hope they’ll stay in touch with their future news.

Here’s a fairly large selection of their photos to have a peep at.

We live in Stradbroke (near to Diss in Norfolk and Eye in Suffolk) on the Suffolk/Norfolk border and mainly photograph weddings in the Suffolk and Norfolk area.


Although we are primarily Suffolk Wedding photographers we do also travel all over the UK (and world) to photograph some amazing couples at their beautiful weddings!

It therefore goes without saying that even if you haven't chosen to have a Suffolk Wedding we are still happy to look at your day and see if we can capture it for you.
