• WELCOME

    Well hello there and welcome to Hayley Denston Photography. We are Suffolk Wedding Photographers who travel as far and wide as we can to photograph weddings and portraits (although we mainly photograph weddings and portraits 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. If not, perhaps you were searching for a Suffolk portrait photographer or very simply 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.

Jo and Nic’s Wedding at Woolpit Church and Haughley Park Barn photographed by Suffolk Wedding Photographers Hayley Denston Photography

Our next brilliant wedding was the much anticipated wedding day of Jo and Nic. From the minute we met Jo (and her bridesmaid Laura) at The Suffolk Wedding Show we knew that this day would be one which we’d love to photograph so we were thrilled when they booked us for their day. Their ceremony took place at the stunning church in Woolpit (many thanks to Ruth the vicar who we’ve worked with before and is always fab in letting us take lots of photos as well as delivering a personal and sweet sermon) followed by their reception at the amazing Haughley Park Barn

For those of you who read the blog regularly I had already photographed the lovely Jo and Nic up at Haughley earlier in the year when the bluebells were in flower so I was extra excited about their day after all that they’d told me. The shire horses they booked for their horse and carriage were so majestic (and a lot bigger than your normal horses) I couldn’t help but take lots of photos with them in. So much time and effort went in to all the planning that all the details were so well thought out and the barn looked incredible. The flowers had a Midsummer Nights Dream theme and Rachel at The English Rose Florists as always had done a marvellous job, I especially loved the giant poppy seed heads! The weather for this wedding in all honesty wasn’t brilliant but we dodged the showers and they managed to have their reception outside and enjoy the grounds that Haughley has to offer, it certainly didn’t dampen the day at all.

Jo looked sublime and elegant in her silk dress whilst Nick looked every bit the dashing husband! They had the biggest and yummiest looking cake I think we have ever seen (as I mentioned in a previous post) and Nic made the cake stand. Dreamwave events did the disco in the evening and Jo and Nic’s second song (Sweet Child O’ Mine by Guns N’ Roses) saw the guests moshing and thoroughly enjoying themselves – this disco rocked!

I could talk about this day for hours … here’s a selection for those of you wanting to peep at their day

Sophie and Matthew’s Wedding at The Black Bull, Balsham – Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary

Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary this week goes out to the wonderful Sophie and Matthew.  We photographed the amazing Sophie and Matthew’s wedding last September and it was a local village affair that all took place in Balsham in Cambridgeshire.  Sophie and Matthew are such a relaxed, chilled out couple I don’t think anything would have phased them.  Here’s a link to their wedding story in case you’d like to read more about their day and a photo of the two of them

Biggest Wedding Cake Ever? Suffolk Wedding Photography photographed by Suffolk Wedding Photographers Hayley Denston Photography

Hey all,  I am a little behind on writing up our next wedding and looking at my diary for the rest of the week it seems unlikely that I’ll post it before next week.  Apologies to Jo and Nic whose wedding’s the next one I’m writing up and whose wedding ceremony took place at Woolpit Church followed by their reception at Haughley Park Barn. It was a wonderful day, beautiful finishing touches and gorgeous shire horses just to wet your appetite for their main story!

Here’s just a sneak peek at their wedding cake though …. is this the biggest and scrummiest cake you’ve ever seen?????  I could just eat a slice of that now with a cup of tea!

Back to working on all those lovely photos and preparing for Leanne and Matt’s Wedding at The Swan, Lavenham later this week
