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 next wedding was Sian and Ian’s day which took place completely at the beautiful Haughley Park Barn. These two are the most sweet couple you could wish to work for who take everything in their stride so when rain was forecast I wasn’t overly worried. The rain was due to be heavy during their reception time and despite a little drizzly downpour when we came out of the ceremony the rain mainly held off for all of their outdoor reception time and then the heaven’s opened just when we came in and then the rain stayed wet the rest of the day (although at this stage I don’t think anyone really minded as we’d got to spend a lot of time outside earlier and got the photos done).

Sian looked absolutely stunning in her dress and Ian was every bit her dashing husband! One really different finishing touch for this day was that they’d both had tattoos done on their wrists for the day (I’ve popped a photo in so you can see what they had) as a lasting reminder.

What a beautiful day, Sian and Ian have already been together for many years and we’re certain they’ll have a lot of wonderful married years ahead of them.

Here’s a small selection of photos from their day to have a swizzle at

We hope to hear back from many more of you soon once you have your dates sorted. It was also fab to see so many happy faces of those of you who’ve booked us already so thanks for popping over to say hi.

Well as I was on a roll blogging about portrait sessions last week these have got a little out of date order so back to the end of August now for the wonderful Eleanor and Craig’s Wedding. This was always going to be a gorgeous day, their ceremony took place at Finningham Church which is directly opposite Eleanor’s Family home where she got ready and then we were back to one of our favourite wedding venues, the stunning Haughley Park Barn for their reception. I started with the girls at Eleanor’s parents house whilst David joined the boys at The Farmhouse at Haughley for the getting ready.  Eleanor had hired the fabulous Rachel and Dionne at Defining Radiance to do hers and the bridesmaids make up and they did a stunning job (I would expect nothing less from these two as they’re brilliant). We then walked over to the ceremony where we had two vicars doing different parts of the service. After the ceremony we did a few groups, confetti and then I popped back to Eleanor’s parents house with them to do some with the dog and pony before going back to Haughley.

After a lovely afternoon reception with canapes by Tina at Crossways Farm Caterers (these are always yummy … I’ve not seen a tray ever come back with food on!) we were then in for their meal, some speeches and dancing. As the weather was fab we also did see evening photos down at the Parkland with their dog which was great.

Eleanor had made so many sweet treats for this day (she is quite clearly a very talented baker) and I can say that I did sample the macaroons which were exquisite! Lovely finishing touches like this make the day so special and unique to the couple. There was also a stunning cake that was made by Helen at Amelie’s Kitchen (This lady is a brilliant cake maker with very yummy cakes).

Eleanor and Craig are a relaxed, happy, loving couple and this showed on their day. We’re certain they’ll have a very long and happy marriage ahead of them.

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

Hello, well what a busy year this one has been for us (in fact our busiest since we started out 12 years ago!) and it doesn’t end yet. We’ve only had time to fit one Wedding Show in this autumn and it’s The Suffolk Wedding Show this Sunday (16th October 2016).  We’ll be there with our newly redesigned stand, a whole load of books and albums and of course we’ll both be there to have a chat with you about your day. Fingers crossed we’ll be just what you’re looking for in your search for Suffolk Wedding Photographers!

The details of the show are as follows:

Sunday 16th October 2016

The Suffolk Wedding Show – Wherstead Park, Wherstead, IP9 2BJ


We will be on stand 23 (in the marquee)

Free Admission

This show is always brilliant and one we very much enjoy exhibiting at.  The Show is run in conjunction with Heart Radio and there are around 60-70 exhibitors so it should be a great day with a lot for you to look at.  There are always plenty of photographers at this event too so you can find a style to suit you and your day perfectly!

It’s always lovely to see so many people at this show. We see familiar old faces from weddings we’ve photographed before, existing couples who are waiting for their days to arrive and us to photograph them and we get to meet lots of wonderful new people at different stages of planning their wedding days. If you feel like having a chat with us we’ll try our best to answer any questions you have and hopefully we’ll be available on your date to photograph your day for you.

If you can’t make this show please don’t worry though as there’s plenty in the wedding section on here for you to look at and we can arrange meetings at other times to get together and talk about your day.

We look forward to seeing you there and hope to be photographing many of your weddings soon.

One of the real perks of my job is seeing the couples whose weddings we photograph go on to have babies and getting asked to come back to photograph them with their new arrivals.

This was one of those sessions. We were lucky enough to photograph the gorgeous Kerry and Paul’s wedding at Hengrave Hall last year and they have now welcomed the arrival of their beautiful baby Zachary. He is such a cutie pie and I got to have a nice big cuddle with him before our session began. Babies who are around this age (he’s around 6 weeks old) are always a slightly tricky age (in my opinion) to photograph as they are past the newborn stage (a lot of those really cute baby photos you see where the babies are all squished up and tiny are done within days of them being born) where they will curl up but are not yet at the stage of supporting their own heads and smiling. Despite all of that I’m really pleased with all the photos we did get and Zachary was a little star (I suspected he would be as Kerry and Paul are both fab at having their photo taken!) … posing and squishing up were no problem for him and I swear he gave us his first smile (although I will confess it may have been wind … his not mine!)

Here’s a small selection from their session
