Zoe and Philippe’s Seckford Hall Wedding by Suffolk Wedding Photographers Hayley Denston Photography

At the end of May we got to photograph an eagerly anticipated wedding (as they booked us back in 2015) for Zoe and Philippe’s day at Seckford Hall in Suffolk. This day was one we’d been looking forward to for what felt like a very long time. When we first met Zoe and Philippe at The Suffolk Wedding Show we knew they were our kind of couple and so we were over-the-moon when they booked us for their day. I knew I really liked them as I very rarely work on my birthday but wanted to for their day (and they are such a sweet couple that they even bought me a bunch of flowers and a vase which I was really touched by). As it was my birthday I could prepare them a little more accurately for the kind of weather I thought it might be … I explained that I usually get thundery downpours or a gloriously sunny day … thankfully we had the later on their day which I couldn’t have been more delighted about!

Their entire day took place at Seckford Hall and it was beautiful. They had chosen a gorgeous purple and teal colour scheme and everything looked wonderful. The flowers (and a special flower arch) were done by the fabulously talented Kaye at Kaye Souter Flowers and the cake was made by Michelle at Vanilla Cake Design. Next to the cake were some lovely wedding wooden ducks with their names on (see one of the photos below if you want to know what they looked like).

Zoe looked radiant in her dress which had just the right amount of sparkle on it and Philippe looked handsome in his suit.

We couldn’t have wished for a nicer day for these two and we’re certain they’ll have many years of happy married life ahead of them. Here’s a small selection from their day which I struggled to choose as I love so many of their photos. We’re delighted that they love their photos too and I’m sure Zoe won’t mind me sharing what she kindly wrote on our Facebook Page with you (we’ve only just set up this section but if you fancy leaving us a review we’d be really grateful):

‘After booking the venue, Hayley & David were the first thing we booked. We absolutely fell in love with them & their photos! We cannot thank you both enough for everything, over the two years you remembered us at every wedding fayre, our names & even my family’s names! On the day the guests gave us so many compliments about how lovely they were and they even wondered if you were friends of ours that had agreed to photograph the wedding! We have the most amazing pictures to go with the most amazing memories. You guys are so talented I cannot praise and thank you enough!!

Lots of love,

Mr & Mrs Dale’

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.
