From the moment we met Hayley both my (now) husband and I felt we had found the perfect person to capture our day. Our wedding day was 32 degrees and that did not stop Hayley and Craig from capturing beautiful shots of our day. We really enjoyed having them with us on our journey and they made us really enjoy the moments we had together taking our couple shots. We have now had all our photos back and we loved them all, one of the most important things for our day was getting photographs of our families and now we have the most beautiful shots to share with everyone. Thank you!

"Wow. What can we say that we haven't already?! Thank you x10000000 for capturing our wedding day so perfectly! Our photos are everything we could have asked for and more and we will treasure them always. We especially love the shots of the ceremony, you capture the warmth and happiness so beautifully! So many feels! Thanks for being such a joy to have around on the day, it felt like having an old friend at the hotel and there throughout the day and so many guests commentated on how fabulous (and unobtrusive!) you were. Basically you are one fabulous, talented lady and we are SO pleased we found you!"
Chloe & George
"Wow...what can we say?! Being on our Honeymoon and seeing our sneak peeks gave us both goosebumps!! Thank you so much for capturing our special day with such enthusiasm and such a laid back vibe...we can's wait to see more! Thank you x100!"
Hannah & Jamie
Thank you soooooo much! The photos you have taken are absolutely stunning we love every one!!
The pre wedding shoot was invaluable! It was great to spend some time together before the big day, you made us feel so at ease and comfortable and the fact we had that experience ensures our couple shots were super quick and we could get back to our guests
On the day itself you were amazing, allowing us to enjoy our special day whilst making sure you captured all of the details. You were so flexible and worked with us each and every step of the way.
Photos were hugely important to me in the planning of our day and you certainly did not disappoint. I have recommended your amazing work to literally anyone that will listen!! Thank you again!
Katrina & Adam
Thank you ever so much fro being our wedding photographer, you were amazing. From the first time I contacted you, i knew you were the person to capture all the special moments of our day. When we met you at the Bridge Hotel it was very clear to us that you were perfect! Even the sneak peeks just shows how talented you are for capturing all of those special moments from our day. You were so thoughtful in the run up to our wedding, with the package you sent us, thank you! All of our guests commented on how well you "fitted in" today and made all the group photos so much easier to do. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"
Sarah & Matt
"We would both like to thank you for the amazing job you did photographing our wedding! We honestly could not be more happy with the gorgeous moments you managed to capture.... we will treasure your photo's forever!!"

I fell in love with Hayley's photos quickly and booked in to meet her within weeks of our engagement. Straight away she made us feel relaxed and like we were talking with a friend! We booked her later that day. Our engagement shoot included our little boy and Hayley was so good helping us and him relax in front of the camera- she got some fab pics that made us so excited for our wedding ones! Every step of the way Hayley made me feel at ease and responded quickly to any questions/queries I had. On the actual day we didn't even notice her there, she blended amongst our guests seamlessly and caught some great moments. The little details Hayley puts in makes it even more special and feels like she's on the wedding planning journey with you! I cannot recommend her enough, for her amazing photos and for what a lovely person she is, you will not be disappointed!
Leila & Greg
"We just wanted to say a huge thank you for capturing the best day of our lives. We are so pleased with the photo's, you made us both feel so comfortable and it felt like we've know you for years. We've had so many amazing comments about you and your photo's, thank you for taking the time to come share our day with us!"
Becci & Leon
"Incredible! From the moment we saw Hayleys photos online we knew she was exactly what we wanted in a wedding photographer, however we weren't to know how truly amazing she was until we met her. She put us both at ease straight away, having planned a very intimate ceremony and both being very private people, we had been reluctant to hire a photographer at all! Hayley was genuinely interested and excited not only about being our photographer, but all aspects of our day. When the time came for our E-shoot we were both nervous as we're not exactly naturals in front of a camera! After half an hour with Hayley it was like being photographed by a close friend on a day out, and the photos were stunning. We knew we'd made the right choice! On our wedding day she was a joy to have around, bubbly and excited for us, emotional when we were, and so stress free, we were so chilled out all day. She got all the right shots and then some, capturing all the best moments, it's like the photos tell the story of our day rather than some of the overly formal sets of wedding photos we were keen to avoid! I'm not sure I can convey how grateful we are to her for being a part of our day, it was as if we just had an extra guest! We couldn't recommend Hayley highly enough, she made one of the biggest worries for our day the one thing we didn't have to stress about at all!"
Ruth & Philipp
"We were very lucky that Hayley was recommended to us, as we had struggled to find a photographer for our small intimate family wedding of 30 guests. It was important to us that understood we wanted to capture special moments from throughout the day rather than reels of poses next to a cake, signing a register etc. From the initial email Hayley showed much more interest and understanding in our day than anyone else we had been in contact with so far. On the day Hayley was really lovely, with nothing ever being too much of a hassle and not only getting on really well with everyone but also capturing lots of lovely moments without us even knowing and we now have these forever. We had hoped to get a handful of photos that we would like from the day, but the reality was that we have so many great photos which we keep looking back and actually have too many for us to choose from! We could not have wished for a better photographer for our wedding day, as not only were the photos amazing but Hayley does everything with a smile and is just lovely to be around! Thank you Hayley!"
Lottie & Harry
"Hayley is absolutely amazing! From the moment we met her to look through her pictures we knew she was the photographer for us. She is bubbly and enthusiastic and truly passionate about all things wedding-related, and created beautiful creative and unique images of our wedding day which we loved looking through and reliving our big day. We loved having our eshoot too where we got to know more about how she worked, and she also helped to keep everyone calm on the day. She also worked tirelessly through the service and reception and we really felt she went the extra mile for us. Best of all, she got some fantastic pictures of our yellow Labrador Mungo (who loved her!) and was totally happy to accommodate all our weird dog-photo requests! Book Hayley - you won't be disappointed!"
Sarah & Gavin
"Firstly, thank you again so much for being our photographer - without a doubt you were the right and best choice :) Made our wedding so special and amazing so thank you! Secondly, WOW! The photos are stunning! Have no idea how to choose between them for which ones to put up in the house, but so happy that we have so many wonderful photos to look at and remember our special day. Thirdly, are you in/up for the county wedding awards?! If not, you really need to be! As we would definitely vote!"
Jenni & Steff
We chose Hayley to be our wedding photographer after attending our friends wedding last year and being thoroughly impressed with her professionalism, organisation and the quality of the photos she had taken. My husband isn’t a fan of having his photo taken or being centre of attention so I knew we needed to choose someone that could blend into the background but equally organise all of our guests (and our children) efficiently. Hayley did not disappoint, she arrived at my house in the morning along with Craig the videographer. (Who didn’t actually come in - I can’t imagine why he didn’t want to be around loads of stressed women, make up and hair straighteners!) Hayley arriving at the house immediately felt just like having a friend round who happened to be taking some photos. I was quite worried I’d feel a bit uncomfortable having someone I’d never properly met take photos of me while I was getting ready but Hayley is so warm and friendly it didn’t feel weird at all. She even helped my step mum get into her dress so she’s not just your photographer, she is another pair of hands in the chaos of wedding morning madness! At the church Hayley and Craig were already set up when I arrived and took some beautiful photos but in a very discreet way, which I’m sure our priest was really grateful for as he said in the past he has had photographers practically stand in front of him to take photos. Hayley and Craig arrived at the venue before we did and took some beautiful photos of the set up before the children were let loose on the garden games and tipi. They captured every moment of our day and literally never stopped taking photos. They both have an amazing eye for what will make a good photo and have a way of making you feel so comfortable. Because let’s face it - it’s not always comfortable being told to “kiss” or “stare into each other’s eyes” but somehow having one of them instruct you on how they want you to position yourself and the other make a funny comment just as the photo is taken you all end up laughing and suddenly it’s not awkward at all. They just work so well together which really shows through every moment they’ve captured behind the camera. They worked around our schedule for the day and were so relaxed about when they would get what shots that it felt far more relaxed than other weddings where I have seen photographers shouting for certain people to be in a certain place. We also didn’t have bridesmaids or a best man so Hayley and Craig literally had to organise everything themselves which isn’t easy when you don’t know who anyone is. I really can’t recommend Hayley and Craig enough, they even stayed later than they were booked for as they knew we were having a magician come in the evening and were hoping to get some photos of his work. They make you feel incredibly confident which I would love to think is because myself and my husband are “extremely photogenic” or “such an amazing looking couple” but actually they just know how to make you look your best and what to say to make you feel at ease with the whole thing. We’ve only seen the previews but the pictures so far are incredible, far better than we imagined. So we really can’t wait to see all the finished photos and the video. Thank you Hayley and Craig, you guys are the best and I’m so pleased that you were part of our day!
Katie & Chris
"Thank you for our beautiful photos! Your unique eye and artistic approach means we relive our special day everyone we look at them. We had tears in our eyes looking at them for the first time, as we saw things in your photos we'd missed on the day! Will recommend Hayley Pettit Photography & Film to all our friends and family. Thank you!! ❤️ Mr and Mrs Garner ❤️"
Naomi & David
"It won't let me select a star rating but I would definitely say 5 stars!
From our very first meeting Hayley was incredible, offering tips and advice a long the way. After a disastrous engagement shoot with another photographer, we were so glad to have found Hayley! We felt instantly reassured by her beautiful portfolio and her down to earth attitude. And Craig was an added bonus on our big day!
We just got our wedding photos and we couldn't have wished for more. We are so in love with them, we couldn't be happier! Thank you so much!
Hayley & Craig were amazing from start to finish. We would highly recommend. And I mean, who wouldn't want a photographer with kick ass sparkly boots?"
Rebecca & Chris
"Thank you so much for capturing our wedding day so perfectly! We were so excited to work with you and you made the whole experience really enjoyable, from our first meeting, to planning, to the big day. You were so lovely to work with and such a natural fit on our wedding day. We couldn't have picked a better photographer!"
Amber & Jordan
"We chose Hayley as our wedding photographer earlier this year. And we are so glad we did! From the moment we met Hayley she made us feel at ease. Neither of us are people who enjoy being photographed but she made it feel so easy and made sure we both felt comfortable. Her photographs are amazing and our family and friends absolutely loved them. She captured our perfect day so beautifully. Now we have photos forever that can remind us of how we felt on our day, because she captures everything not just the obligatory posed wedding photos. We highly recommend her if you're looking for a photographer!"
Lydia & James
"Hayley was absolutely amazing! From the moment we met her in a little coffee shop in St Neots, we knew we'd picked the perfect photographer to capture our special day. She's a warm, genuine, and really lovely person, who made our guests (and us!) feel completely at ease. On top of that, Hayley's photography is just stunning. Her photos are full of personality, and she managed to capture so many beautiful (and hilarious!) moments on our wedding day - we loved every single photo she took! Thank you SO much Hayley!"
Amelia & Stu
"Hayley was the most wonderful photographer and we are SO lucky to have had her capture our engagement photos and the big day itself! From our first meeting, we knew we wanted to book her. In fact, the search stopped immediately! There was no doubt in our minds that we wanted her! Our photographs are absolutely perfect, we couldn't have dreamed of anything better! Hayley is a wonderful person through and through and nothing was ever too much trouble for her. She has become hugely important to me and my husband, she's stuck with this fangirl loving all her work now!!"
Rachel & Andrew
"Hayley was recommended to us by a friend, and I'm so glad we were put in touch with her. Right from the start she made the whole process really easy for us; when it came to our engagement shoot she totally put us at our ease and was so much fun to work with, which gave us a lot of confidence for our wedding day. On the day itself she was brilliant; she got exactly the photos we wanted, without ever being obtrusive or altering the pace of our day. It felt like having a (very professional) friend there! We absolutely love our photos and will treasure them as memories of a very happy day."
Lisa & Robert
"Hayley made us feel at ease from the start at our engagement shoot. She's a true professional. Very easy going and captures your day from start to finish in great detail. Thank you Hayley for your patience with the 'PAPS', you were very discreet! If you want you day captured so that you have a story of natural shots Hayley is your lady! Thank you again. What a star!"
Hannah & Terence
"Fabulous! We found Hayley through hitched and she was a great find. From the first contact through to the actual day she was constantly keeping us up to date on things we would need to do and enthusiastic about our day. The engagement shoot was great as it helped put us a ease when we had our photos on the day. On our wedding day she worked tirelessly and many guests commented on how hard she worked. We were so pleased with the photos and they arrived in such a wonderful packaged box as well. We were really pleased with our photos which captured the relaxed nature of our wedding day. Thank you!"
Claire & Stuart
"Not only a talented photographer, Hayley is a pleasure to be around. From our first meeting with Hayley we knew we were in safe hands. We were really impressed how clearly she explained her approach to our big day, and found the engagement portrait session really helpful in making us more at ease. For two people who are not keen on having their photo taken, this was remarkable! We even dragged the pooch along for the afternoon and ended up with some amazing pictures.
Every wedding day is unique and ours spanned multiple venues, Hayley was able to cover all this as well as the bride's preparations across town as the day began. She was unfailingly polite and friendly to everyone she came across, and yet invisible most of the time. (Which is how we came to nickname her ‘The Ninja Photographer’). She really just let us, and all our guests, get on with enjoying the day. We had many compliments about Hayley from our guests.
Hayley delivered a beautiful set of images that captured many very happy memories. We were awestruck. Each photo was mesmerising, capturing intimate moments in beautiful style. This is how we discovered the fantastic talents of Hayley Pettit. She captured people's expressions perfectly, and when we first looked through the pictures we found that there were so many which we had no idea that she'd taken, with all the little details that made the day special. Just looking back at them reminds us of a brilliant day.
We cannot recommend Hayley highly enough! When choosing a photographer, you spend a lot of time looking at other people's wedding photos and hope that yours will turn out just as well. Nothing compares to looking at your own and, with Hayley, they will turn out even better! Book the Ninja Photographer now!"
Josh & Teresa
"Hayley! Thank you so much! The photos are incredible!!Again thank you so much me and Teresa love all of our photos they really captured the atmosphere of such a special day in our lives xx"
