• WELCOME

    Well hello there and welcome to Hayley Denston Photography. We are Suffolk Wedding Photographers who live in a little village on the Suffolk/Norfolk Border. We travel as far and wide as we can to photograph weddings although we mainly photograph weddings in Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex. Our fingers are crossed that you've either found us through a personal recommendation or whilst looking for a wedding photographer in Suffolk, Norfolk or Essex. If not, perhaps you were simply having a browse for a Suffolk portrait photographer (as we do that too) or even just Suffolk wedding photography.

    However you've arrived at our website we're pleased you're here and hope that you've got a few minutes (together with a cuppa and a biscuit) to have a look through our photos. We hope that you love what you see and that we'll get to meet and photograph you in the future.

Our last April wedding this year was Nikki and James’ day that took place at Boyton Church and Woodhall Manor. This was a glorious day, bright and sunny even though it was a tad windy and cool. I started with Nikki getting ready at Woodhall and David started with James and the boys at the local pub. Nikki arrived at the church with her dad in her dad’s kit car which was very special. Their ceremony was then at the beautiful Boyton church and we were lucky enough to have some gorgeous bluebells out in the churchyard for some photos.

Nikki and James wanted their day to be as relaxed and informal as possible and to reflect the East Anglian countryside and atmosphere. On arrival back at Woodhall Manor afternoon tea was awaiting the guests which looked scrumptious. As there is a slightly sheltered area round the back of Woodhall many guests enjoyed their afternoon tea outside but for those not wanting to venture out in the cold there were lots of indoor games and rooms to choose from. We then went over to the other building for their wedding breakfast which was an East Anglian feast (lots of goodies from East Anglia including a fish and chip supper and ice cream). They did their cake cutting before the meal (lots of homemade cakes) and then speeches also beforehand and even Nikki stood up and said a few words!

Nikki had one of the most different wedding dresses I’ve ever seen, it was a two piece dress (so top and skirt) and it fitted her perfectly. James wore a smart blue suit and we again saw grape hyacinths as buttonholes which I loved!

Nikki and James are a couple who don’t post a lot online and so I am honoured that they’ve allowed me to share these few photos with you … enjoy

Congratulations to Jane and David who are celebrating their first wedding anniversary this week. As soon as I met Jane to talk about their relaxed and informal day I knew that we’d like to be a part of their celebrations and so we were delighted when they booked us.

This day was such a special one and we wish nothing but good times ahead for the two of you and hope that you’ll be celebrating your anniversary in style

Wow, I’m excited to share with you Emma and Lee’s wedding which ended off our April Weddings in style. Emma and Lee had their entire wedding at the stunning Hengrave Hall which is one of our most impressive wedding venues (in our opinion) in Suffolk. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer day … warm, sunny weather that blessed us all day. Emma and Lee had booked us such a very long time ago for their day and so it was one we’d been looking forward to for a long time and we were so delighted when it got here.

So much time and planning had gone into all the finishing touches from the cotton handkerchiefs that were handed to guests before the ceremony, to an outdoor DJ (the fantastic Paul at Dreamwave Events) , a creche for the children and a magician to keep the adults entertained. Inside they had a cheese table and a separate sweets one and even the sweet colours matched in with their blue colour scheme.

Emma and Lee have three gorgeous children, Lee’s daughter Holly who was our flowergirl and their two little boys (Charlie and Freddie). The children were so good all day and it was a joy to photograph your family.

Emma’s dress was in a 1920’s style and she looked a timeless beauty in it … as it was completely beaded it was also very heavy so I don’t quite know how Emma managed to walk around so effortlessly and graceful in it all day but she did! Lee was her dashing prince charming in his dapper navy suit. The flowers were done by the very talented Rachel at The English Rose Florists and although they were simple displays of roses, stocks and hydrangeas they looked perfect for this day.

The evening was topped off with some fireworks which was a great end to a wonderful day.

Emma and Lee are such a lovely couple and their day reflecting them so well, I could share so many from this day that it was hard just to choose a selection but here’s a quick overview for you to have a look at
