The Wedding of Claire&Sam@Haughley Park Barn by Suffolk Wedding Photographers Hayley Denston Photography

April was a very busy month for weddings for us and the next one we photographed was Claire and Sam’s enchanting day which took place at Haughley Park Barn. This was a day filled with lots of love, laughter and a fair few children running around so it was great that the weather was sunny for us for most of the reception time allowing us to be outside and the children to enjoy the bouncy castle!

I started with Claire getting ready over in the Farmhouse and it was great to see the very talented Rachel at Defining Radiance doing the make up and the equally talented Karen (at Karen’s Beautiful Brides) doing their hair. David started over at the barn with Sam and the boys arriving. The ceremony involved a fairly long procession of bridesmaids, flowergirls and a pageboy which was great. It’s always lovely to also see the registrars from Stowmarket as they make the ceremony personal and are all so great.

For most of the reception we were outside enjoying garden games, the bouncy castle and drinks and canape’s supplied by Tina and her team at Crossways Farm Caterers  (they always produce scrummy food and we love working with them).

Claire looked radiant and beautiful in her fitted dress which had a stunning back to it and train. Sam looked equally as handsome in his suit and the two of them are quite clearly a very well suited couple.

The Spring was still behind a little for flowering plants but we managed to find a lot of gorgeous areas of Haughley to use including the beautiful Camellias that were in flower. (you’re always spoilt for choice at this venue which is one of the reasons we love working here … Janice, Ellie and all the staff who work here are also a joy to work alongside!).

There were so many beautiful finishing touches to this day including a cake table with lots of delicious cakes on and a wedding cake that was made and put together by one of Claire’s bridesmaids.

We love the photos from this day and are delighted that you all love them as much as we do. Here’s a small selection to look at from their day

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.
