• 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.

This weekend’s congratulations go out to the beautiful Becca and Alex on their first Wedding Anniversary. These two are some of the nicest people you could ever meet and we hope that you get to take some time out of your hectic schedules this weekend to look back on your gorgeous photographs and reminisce on what was a wonderful day. We also hope that you’ll get to celebrate with something bubbly!

Here’s a link to their full blog story and photos for those of you fancying a peep

At the beginning of June I photographed Kathy and Ali’s intimate and tiny wedding at Shepherd’s Cottage in Wantisden. These two are a wonderful couple who’ve been together a really long time and it was an honour to be a part of their very special day. So much love and laughter it was a joy to capture it all. They also let me take a slice of cake home which was a real treat to have with my cup of tea.

We were lucky with the weather and got to be outside a lot for the reception time. The foxgloves and Irises were in flower and then later in the evening I joined Kathy and Ali again for some photos at Dunwich Heath and Westleton Green which are two places very special to them.

Kathy looked beautiful in her simple yet elegant dress and the blue sash set it off wonderfully and then Ali looked equally beautiful in her blue suit with red tie!

These two quite clearly adore each other and the vows that they wrote each other were so touching and unique to them. Patricia Sharman did the afternoon teas which looked scrummy and Natalie at Windmill Florists did their gorgeous flowers! We also had Arbutus String Trio providing us with some lovely music.

We are certain that these two are a match made in heaven and that they will have a very happy marriage ahead of them. We really hope our paths will continue to cross in the future.

Here’s a small peep at their day

At the end of May we photographed Rachel and Phil’s stunning day at The Tudor Barn in Belstead. This is a relatively new venue for us but one that we’re very much enjoying photographing at.

I started this day with Rachel getting ready with her bridesmaids at her parents house. It was a real treat that the Rhododendron (pink flowered bush) in their garden was in full flower and looked incredible for some pre-wedding pics!

David started with the boys arriving at Belstead Church which was extra special as Phil’s parents had got married there many years earlier so there was a real family connection. Rachel and Phil have a little boy called Matthew who was a little young to understand what was going on but he was a little gem. Even the vicar couldn’t finish the service without laughing as he wiggled his bottom at her in the aisle much to the laughter of the guests!

So many special touches and well thought out details that all came together to make the barn look extra fabulous. Lots of Rose Gold finishes and even the cake had a rose gold layer. I also liked the adult games in the garden and the ‘beer pong’ went down very well. So much to love about these two, their little boy and this day. Also, a quick shout out to the bestman who did one of the best ‘bestman’ speeches we’ve ever heard – it was funny, sentimental and perfect!

Rachel looked radiantly beautiful in her elegant dress and Phil looked every bit her dashing prince charming. As for Matthew … well what can I say, he just looked adorably cute in his little suit and bow tie! They are such a lovely little family and we wish them lots of happiness in their future ahead of them.

Here’s a small selection of their day for you to have a peep at
