• 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.

Many congratulations go out today to the beautiful Charlotte and Josh who will be celebrating their first Wedding Anniversary. I can’t believe that this day was a year ago at Woodhall Manor as it feels like only yesterday. Such a happy, smiley couple it was a real treat to photograph this day!

I know it’s a work day but I really hope you’ll both have the day off and get to celebrate!

Our last wedding we photographed in August was Danielle and George’s day which was just gorgeous. Danielle got ready at Blackthorpe House where I joined her whilst David started with George at Rougham Church. They then had their reception back at Blackthorpe Barn.

We had good weather for this day again in the never ending hot summer which seems a distant memory now. There were so many beautiful finishing touches to this day, one that stood out for us were the stunning pottery candles that George had made everyone as favours from his family pottery and they looked incredible. So many happy and welcoming guests at this day who made us feel like friends rather than just the photographers. Danielle arrived in a vintage VW Campervan (I always love these) and the vicar was kind allowing me to be at the front of the church whilst David photographed from the back.

Danielle wore a beautiful fitted dress and looked radiant with a big beaming smile all day and George looked every bit as dashing!

These two are a gorgeous, sweet, gentle and kind couple who we wish a lifetime of happiness for. It’s clear that they are both adored by all their friends and family.

Here’s just a very small peep at their day

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.

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.
