• 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.

Happy 6th Anniversary to Ange and Em photographed by Suffolk Wedding Photographer Hayley Denston Photography

This week our congratulations go out to Ange and Em who we’ve photographed twice now on reaching their 6 year anniversay.

We photographed their civil ceremony back in 2008 and then last year their 5 year vow renewal.  Both celebrations took place at St Giles House in Norwich and both of them were wonderful days.

Here’s a link to their 5 year vow renewal blog story in case you want to have a read and look at their lovely photos

We hope you have a wonderful day celebrating!

Sneak Peek at Millie and Steve’s flowers photographed by Suffolk Wedding Photographers Hayley Denston Photography

This last weekend we had the pleasure of photographing the lovely Millie and Steve at their wedding at Thorpeness Country Club.  The weather was kind to us and it didn’t rain until they were inside for their meal so we got lots of lovely photos outside and on the beach.

I am only at the beginning of sorting through all their images but couldn’t wait to share the flowers with you.  In the 10 years we’ve been photographing weddings I’ve never seen ones like these before.   Millie had made all her floral arrangements from Origami (a process which I’m told took months) and they looked incredible.  For a winter wedding it’s lovely to see an injection of colour like this.  Here’s just a few photos of those arrangements.  For those of you planning winter weddings who are unsure on flowers this may well be an option for you.

I’ll write up their full story with photos of them in a few weeks time when they’re ready.

Making up albums and books – Suffolk Wedding Photographer Hayley Denston Photography

Well, I haven’t taken any new images this week to share with you all (other than of Pip our dog which I’m not sure counts!) but I have been busily working away on lots of different album and book designs.  I’m delighted to be able to place a book order for Lucy and Tim whose wedding we photographed at Thorpeness Country Club in September as they’ve just confirmed they’re happy with the designs (here’s just a couple of the pages to peep at)

I’ve also been working on designs for Jo and Ben whose wedding we photographed back in June at Ben’s family farm in Bressingham. They recently decided they wanted to add an album onto their package which is fabulous.  Here’s just a few of the pages in their proofs which are currently out with them.

As well as this I’ve just been trying to catch up on a lot of smaller things that need sorting when times are a little quieter.  We do have another gorgeous wedding coming up soon for Camilla and Steve at Thorpeness Country Club and I have several fun portrait sessions lined up (as they’re outdoors keep your fingers crossed for some nice weather for us) which I’ll be blogging about in due course.

By the time I’ve done all that the run up to Christmas really truly will have begun as we’ll be into December … eeekkk.  I LOVE CHRISTMAS though and December is my favourite month of the year … I adore all the decorations, atmosphere, food, cold weather, Christmas films, time spent with family and friends …. this list could go on for a while!

Baby Zachary welcome to the world photos photographed by suffolk portrait photographer Hayley Denston Photography

Many congratulations to Lu and Kris in welcoming into the world Baby Zachary. Lu and Kris are a wonderful couple whose wedding we had the privilege of photographing a couple of years ago. I knew this session would be good the moment they asked me to do it as they’re so chilled out and relaxed and a pleasure to be around. It was a real honour to be allowed to photograph Zachary just days after he was born and he is such a little cutie-pie and was so good at our session. I love all the photos and I’m sure many of them will make their way onto the website over the winter months when I get round to refreshing it. Here’s a very small selection and I can’t wait to photograph you all again as he gets older

Fiona and Derek’s Wedding in Shropshire photographed by suffolk wedding photographers

It’s always nicest when we get to work on recommendation and it’s equally lovely when we get to travel a little so this wedding was always going to be a good one from the very start. We photographed Anna and Dick at their wedding back at Yaxley Hall a good few years ago now and were delighted when they got in touch regarding us photographing their daughter Fiona’s wedding in Shropshire. As weddings go this was fairly quick in the planning (only a few months) but thankfully we were available on their date (must be fate). What a wonderful wedding it was, so many happy smiles and a relaxed and gorgeous day it was a treat to be a part of it all. Fiona’s grandmother Penny made the cake and all her sugarcraft skills were incredible. These days it’s quite rare that we see a traditional wedding cake so it was lovely to look at one so beautifully presented.

The weather for their day didn’t look good with the BBC weather even the night before showing bright green, thundery rain. Somehow though we managed to miss it all and saw gorgeous blue skies and sunshine, looking at their photos (other than the leaves turning on the trees) you wouldn’t have thought this was an October wedding. Fiona looked radiantly beautiful and Derek dashing in his suit. They wanted only a handful of photos of them on their own with the main emphasis being on capturing the atmosphere of the day. We are happy that you love the photos from your day and we can’t wait to start designing your photobooks with you. For those of you wishing to have a peep here’s a few photos from their day
