• 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 May we photographed the lovely Emily and Stuart’s Wedding which took place in Hollesley. This was always going to be a relaxed, special and unique day with them choosing the local church followed by a marquee reception in Emily’s mums’ garden. From the moment I’d met with Emily and Stuart and talked through their day and plans with them we knew this was a day we wanted to be a part of. They wanted their day captured mainly as it was with only a handful of formals to cover the essentials which fits in perfectly with how we like to capture days.

All the finishing touches to this day were wonderful and I love the yellow and light blue colour scheme which fitted in perfectly with the surroundings. I started with Emily, her bridesmaids and flowergirls, pageboys and her family getting ready at her mum’s house. Sadly Emily’s dad is no longer with us so Emily put her dad’s ring on her shoes so he could be a part of her day, her brother gave her away and her mum gave a mother-of-the-bride speech. Such special moments and a great show of how loving and close this family are. Whilst I was with the girls David started with Stuart and the boys having lunch at the local Ramsholt Arms (we are lucky to have such gorgeous locations on our doorstep in Suffolk) before heading on to church. The weather was good for us and although a little nippy (hence the heaters on in the church) it was still warm enough for the guests to enjoy an outdoor reception and even the lizards in Emily’s mums’ garden were basking in the sun.

Emily’s dress was so very beautiful and she looked stunning in it. In her hair she wore her mum’s hairpiece that she had at her wedding. Stuart looked dashing in his suit and both of them were very relaxed, happy and chilled out throughout the day.

I could talk about this day for a very long while but I know you’re all anticipating the photos so here’s a selection from their day. We’re certain Emily and Stuart will have a happy marriage ahead of them and we wish them all the love in the world for their future adventures together.

Congratulations this weekend to Hannah and Craig whose wedding we photographed last June at Ravenwood Hall on their first wedding anniversary.

Your wedding day was beautiful and despite it raining (so you couldn’t have an outdoor ceremony) it was still one of the loveliest days with so many beautiful finishing touches (if you’d like to take a peep at some of those details just click here).

We hope that the two of you get to celebrate your anniversary and we wish you lots of happy anniversaries ahead of you

Congratulations today to Beth and Josh who are celebrating their first wedding anniversary. We had the most incredible day photographing your wedding at Haughley Park Barn last June. You two are the most wonderful couple and a joy to be around.

We loved everything about your day and only wish that we could photograph it all over again. We hope that you’ll get the chance to look at your wedding photos today and relive lots of the happy memories (I know we’ll have a look at your images and smile!)

Here’s a quick link to their blog story and lots of photos

At the beginning of May I photographed Dariana and Peter’s Wedding at Cley Windmill. As this was such a tiny and intimate wedding I photographed this one on my own and I had a wonderful time sharing in their celebrations. Dariana got ready at the nearby Birkfield House in Holt and I went back there with the two of them after the ceremony and group photos to take some couple photographs as the grounds were just beautiful.

Cley Windmill is always a gorgeous venue to photograph at. I can’t think of any other venue where the guests sit in a round room on comfy sofas during the ceremony and it feels pretty much like having a wedding at home in terms of the atmosphere. Although the weather wasn’t sunny and it was still a little on the chilly side this didn’t stop Dariana and Peter from doing lots of outdoor photos and I’m so glad they did. Not only did we go back to Birkfield House for some of their couple photos but we also went to the beach and took some at the very windy windmill too!

This was a gorgeous day to be a part of with the joining of Dariana’s Russian Family and Peter’s English one, Dariana looked so very beautiful and Peter looked handsome, they could barely take their eyes off each other all day. One of the many special finishing touches they’d organised was writing out the service in Russian too so that their guests could follow what was happening.

Here’s a small selection of their day for you to have a peep at.

Today’s wedding I’m sharing is from Kirsty and Adam’s day taken in early May at Shepherd’s Cottage, Wantisden Valley. This was a small, intimate wedding and one which we very much enjoyed being a part of.

Kirsty and Adam are a very shy couple and so have asked that I only share some of the details from their very private day (as well as one photo of the two of them which they’ve kindly agreed to). They had a gorgeous rustic scheme with stunning flowers (including feathers in the buttonholes) and the most beautiful wedding cake. We also had glorious sunshine to enjoy the grounds surrounding the cottage.

If you’re considering having a small, intimate wedding surrounded by ancient woodland and a lake or two then I’d really take a look at Shepherd’s Cottage as it’s just beautiful.

So, here’s some details from this wedding for you to have a look at and we wish Kirsty and Adam many happy married years ahead of them.
