• 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.

At the beginning of July we photographed the gorgeous Rebecca and Richard at their local wedding at Brundish in Suffolk. They had their ceremony at Brundish Church followed by their marquee reception on Rebecca’s parents’ farm also in Brundish. I started with Rebecca getting ready at her parents and the effort her mum and dad had put into doing the garden for this day was incredible, it looked so stunning I could have spent many hours just admiring the plants! David started at the church with Richard and the guests arriving.

The weather forecast for this day wasn’t great with thunderstorms, heavy rain and sunshine all thrown into the mix. We were very lucky that it didn’t rain on us when we were at the church and when we did have a heavy thundery shower back at the farm thankfully there was plenty of room in the marquee for guests to shelter. Although I would never hope for rain I sometimes think that it really helps everyone to socialise as rather than dividing off into lots of little groups everyone is in smaller space and mingle more. When it’s just a shower it also means you get some great dramatic skies for photos with a warm sunshine glowing around people … just beautiful.

This was a relaxed day and it’s clear to see that Rebecca and Richard are both adored by their friends and family (it’s not hard to see why as they are a lovely couple). It was a joy to photograph them all. Rebecca looked radiant in her stunning dress and Richard looked every bit as handsome in his suit

Rebecca and Richard kindly sent us the following thank you card after seeing their images which we really appreciate and I hope they won’t mind me sharing with you:

‘Dear Hayley and David,

Richard and I cannot thank you enough for everything you did on our wedding day. Looking back over the photos and reliving the day has been fantastic and so emotional. 

The photo’s you both took are stunning and capture the day beautifully. Dad keeps commenting on the photos and whenever he looks at them a tear comes to the eye.

You both were so lovely to work with and made Richard and I so relaxed, we were thrilled you could be a part of our special day.

Wishing you a very good summer filled with weddings.

Best wishes

Richard and Rebecca’

Rebecca’s dad also wrote to me separately to thank us but I’m going to save that one for another post so I can talk about this day some more.

We’re certain Rebecca and Richard will have a long and happy marriage ahead of them and we really hope our paths will cross with both them and their friends and family in the future

A very special Happy First Wedding Anniversary today to Helen and Christian. This was an extra special one for us as Christian is David’s brother and we also got to photograph their children’s naming ceremony at the same time. We are naturally biased but this was such a gorgeous intimate day to be a part of

Our last June wedding we photographed was Hannah and Craig’s day which took place at Ravenwood Hall. I started with Hannah and the girls getting ready whilst David started with Craig arriving in a very unusual vehicle (I’m not going to spoil the surprise, you’ll have to look at the photos to see what it was!). This was another day where heavy rain and thunder was forecast. Again we were very lucky indeed and the heavy rain only started when they went in for the meal so we got to have the drinks reception and their photos outside.

Hannah’s mum did the majority of the flowers (all apart from Hannah’s bouquet) and they looked beautiful. Grandma made the cake and that too was incredible. The sunny sunflowers everywhere looked gorgeous and all the pots of flowers were charming. Hannah and Craig are a really sweet couple and they beamingly smiled all day. Although we didn’t have the ceremony outside as they’d hoped (as the forecast was not great) their day was still wonderful.

Hannah looked beautiful in her fitted dress whilst Craig’s tweed suit was very daper and he looked very handsome.

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

For over a year I had been speaking with Mandy about capturing her 50th Birthday celebrations with her when they were up in Suffolk. Eventually this day finally got here and I got to photograph them all at their stay at Highfields Lodge at Thorpe Abbotts. I had a fantastic time capturing this close knit group and we managed to get all of their group shots before the heavens opened on us! Mandy even had a special Radley Handbag Cake made for her!

Thank you for choosing me to capture your birthday and here’s to many more birthday celebrations!
