• 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.

In the middle of March we had some very unexpected weather for Rachel and Chris’ Wedding at Holiday Inn, Orwell and that was snow! I never thought we’d get to photograph a snowy wedding in March so it was a real treat and thankfully Rachel and Chris both took the snow in their stride and were happy to pop outside for some photos in it which was brilliant.

We loved so many details from this day but the sunflowers supplied by Kaye at Kaye Souter Flowers really stood out against the snow and the bridesmaids Navy dresses. They were beautiful but then again I’d expect nothing less from Kaye and her flowers as they’re always stunning!

It was wonderful to be a part of this intimate day where all those that mattered most to Rachel and Chris were present, we love photographing smaller days like this where you can feel the love for the couple and how much everyone adores them.

Rachel looked beautiful in her lace fitted dress and Chris looked very dapper in his suit. These two are a really sweet couple who we wish nothing but a lifetime of happiness for.

Here’s a small peep at their day and a look back at all that lovely snow!

Updating all the galleries on here has been one of those tasks that seems to have taken ages to do but it’s well worth it to see lots of recent weddings we’ve photographed.

Today is the turn of the Speeches and Cake gallery which you can find here.

I love Cake (especially when I get to sample it and it’s either chocolate or salted caramel) and we’ve seen some pretty amazing ones recently. Over the last couple of years the naked cakes have been really popular and it’ll be very interesting to see if this craze continues. We’ve also seen a lot of brave people give some fabulous speeches!

Here are some of the older photos we’ve had to say goodbye to so that we could make way for the new ones … enjoy!

In the middle of February (with the very handy blip in the weather and a slight warm spell) we photographed the stunning Leanna and Mike’s day at The Avenue Theatre in Ipswich.

As soon as we met Leanna and Mike we knew this was a day that we’d love to be a part of as they are such a relaxed, happy and smiley couple and their plans for their day sounded a little different and a lot of fun! We were therefore over-the-moon when they chose us to be a part of their day.

Leanna got ready at The Suffolk Escape in Hintlesham and I joined her there at the Log Cabin whilst the fabulous Amelia was doing her hair and make up whilst David joined Mike and the guests arriving at The Avenue Theatre. As you may suspect already the theatre venue is exactly that and a little quirky and different for a wedding. The venue matched with their 20’s-30’s glam theme and was just incredible.

There were so many quirky, unique and wonderful finishing touches to their day. Vintage vibrant furniture, quicky signs, theatre lighting, a casino and peacock feathers. We also loved the fact that Leanna’s band played in the evening and Leanna joined in for some songs playing her Saxophone during the dancing!

Leanna looked beautiful in her fitted dress and feather shrug and Mike looked every bit as handsome in his suit. They are such a wonderful, well matched couple that we’re certain they’ll have a lifetime of happiness ahead of them. We absolutely adore their photos and here’s a small peep at their wonderful day for you all to have a look at:
