• 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.

Still in August (yes I’m that far behind on the blogging) and I met up with the lovely Jess and Jack at Thornham Walks to talk through their final wedding details with them for their day in October. We also had a little wander and took a few couple pics as they wanted this before their day as they were both apprehensive on having their photos taken. They needn’t have worried though and their wedding photos are just so stunning I can’t wait to share that autumnal wedding with you in a future post before Christmas!

Here’s just a handful of photos from their session

At the end of August I had the pleasure of spending a few hours photographing a lovely family in our village. It was a pleasure photographing them all starting in their back garden and then going up to the local allotments and field nearby. I absolutely loved our session and your photos and I am delighted that you’re as pleased with them as I am.

Here’s just a very small peep at their session

We had a couple more weddings in the middle of August which we won’t be blogging about as both have asked not to appear on the internet for their own personal reasons. Whilst we do understand it’s a real shame as they were both wonderful days we’d have loved to have shared with you all. One of the weddings had rainbow colours (a favourite of mine) and a gorgeous dog and the other elegant whites/greens and a small intimate day. We’d still like to just say these were beautiful days and we wish these couples long and happy marriages ahead of them.

So our next wedding to tell you about was towards the end of August and that was Claire and Mark’s wedding which took place at Bressingham Hall and High Barn. These two are a wonderful couple with two lovely little girls who were flowergirls. I started with Claire getting ready at her parents whilst David started with Mark and the guests arriving at Bressingham.  They had their ceremony in the barn followed by an outdoor reception and drinks and canapes in the Courtyard area. The gardens at Bressingham always have something in flower and it was lovely to have a small wander around them with Claire and Mark for their couple photos.

Claire looked radiant in her fitted dress showing off her wonderful hour-glass figure and Mark looked dashing in his suit. These two with their girls make up the perfect little family unit and we hope our paths will cross with them again in the future.

We’re slowly catching up on the blog now and only a couple of months behind writing up our weddings! So, our next wedding goes back to the warmth of the summer in the middle of August and this one is Meg and Joe’s day which took place at The Tudor Barn, Belstead. Their whole day happened here and we worked alongside one of our favourite videographers Steve Hood (it’s always nice when we work alongside someone whose style and approach is similar to ours).

This day had lots of personal and special finishing touches. As Joe is a chef he’d prepared the food for their wedding day and done the cake! There were some of the sweetest little flowergirls and an unusual colour scheme with each of the bridesmaids in a different colour skirt and white top. The skirts were made by the grooms mum! Instead of a sweet table we had a sweet chest of drawers which was a nice new take on this and I think worked really well. In the evening they had no band or disco so I wasn’t entirely sure whether people would get up and dance but once the music had started and they’d had their first dance everyone was on the dancefloor – who wouldn’t be though when you have epic songs like ‘Mr Brightside!’

Meg and Joe take everything in their stride and are such a relaxed, chilled out couple. They let their day flow naturally and this kept all their guests nice and relaxed which meant that although it was a wedding it had much more the feel of a get together with family and friends for a catch up which we really enjoyed.

Meg looked beautiful in her dress and it’s the first time I’ve seen a veil as a cape that goes over the top of the dress which worked so well and doesn’t interfere with hair at all! Joe looked the part too as her handsome husband in his suit. These two are meant to be together and we believe they’ll have many happy years ahead of them.

Many congratulations this weekend to Louise and Alex on their first wedding anniversary. We photographed the gorgeous Louise and Alex at Haughley Park Barn last October. They are a lovely couple, always with big smiles on their faces and they are clearly adored by all their friends and family.

We hope that you two get some time this weekend to celebrate and that you’ll be looking back at your photographs with lots of very happy memories
