• 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.

We are currently in the process of updating all our galleries on the website with new images from the last couple of years and today’s new gallery is the one on our main Weddings Page.

We love the new photos (and hope you will too) but are sad to see some of the old ones having to move over to make way for them. Here’s just a small handful of those older ones before they retire!

Just click here if you can’t see the photos!

Before the Suffolk Wedding Show this weekend we thought we’d share a favourites post for Emma and Dean (who we met at The Suffolk Show) whose wedding took place at Houchins last April. These two are one of the funniest and most loving couples, they are just so kind and happy, we love them and their day (if you’d like to read their whole blog story and see their photos just click here).

These are their favourite photos and reasons:

‘I love how happy and natural Dean is in this photo, it perfectly captured his expression when he saw me walk down the aisle and I love that! ‘

‘The following three capture our genuine happiness of the day, and we love that we have beaming smiles across our faces!’
‘We adore these next three because we can see how much we love each other them! And whilst my hair fell out from the rain and we were confined to taking photos under the tree, it totally didn’t matter, because all our friends and family were there, and we we were married!!’
We chose the following photos, I love the first one which is just after Dean has lowered Emma and her veil has fallen out (some brides would have had a melt down here but Emma just laughed and put her veil back in again). I love the second one for the blossom tree we found injecting a burst of colour and the last one of them high-fiving each other as it shows what they are like together (a perfect team!)

Today is just a little reminder (I know you’re all really busy) in case you missed our post last week on the shows we’ll be exhibiting at. Well this Sunday we will be at The Suffolk Wedding Show at Woolverstone Hall, all the details are below for you. If you are still searching for your wedding photographers but are not sure where to start then this could be the perfect show for you, there’s loads of exhibitors and you’re bound to find some suppliers that would suit you and your day you’re planning.

Perhaps you got engaged on Valentine’s Day and are just at the beginning of planning your day? Well the internet is a great place to begin looking but sadly (in our opinion) it can’t compare with meeting people face-to-face to see who you get along with best and who will capture your day for you not only in the style that you would like but in personality too.

If you love what you’ve seen on our website so far and think that we may be the perfect fit for your day why not pop along if you’re in the area to The Suffolk Wedding Show this Sunday and have a chat with us. Fingers crossed we’ll be just what you’re looking for in your search for Suffolk Wedding Photographers!

Here are the details for you:

Sunday 25th February 2018 – The Suffolk Wedding Show

Woolverstone Hall, Woolverstone, Ipswich, IP9 1AZ

10.30am-3.00pm

We will be in the Conservatory on stand 40

Free Admission (although donations can be made to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice if you wish)

This show is always brilliant and one we very much enjoy exhibiting at.  There are around 60 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 so you can find a style to suit you perfectly!

This show is always busy (especially in the first couple of hours) and as it’s a new venue it’s likely to be even busier than usual. Please bear with us if we take a little while to get to you because we are chatting to other couples which we hope you’ll understand. It’s always lovely to see both familiar faces (from weddings we’ve photographed before or existing couples who are waiting for their days to arrive) and lots of new ones with everyone 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 don’t think you can make this show try not to worry as there is still Haughley Park Barns Wedding Showcase on the 18th March to pop along to and we can also arrange meetings at other times to get together and talk about your day.

We look forward to seeing lots of you on Sunday!

Our favourites post for this week is from Karen & David’s Marquee wedding in their back garden last September. This was the most intimate and beautiful day to be a part of. We were hoping for a dry day but that wasn’t what the weather had planned for us (spoiler alert: the rain ruined nothing!), just click here to read their full blog story and see a lot of photos from their day.

Karen and David chose me the following joint favourite photos because:

‘They are so sweet’

‘It shows off the marque and everyone looking happy in the background’
‘We love all the colours and the flowers (and K’s smile)’
‘It has all the kids on it’
‘The sunshine and the arbor’
‘Just a lovely detailed shot’
We chose the following two, the first one because it’s just a little different and what they have in their tree normally and the second because of the happiness and the dramatic skies as more rain is approaching!

Firstly, Happy Valentine’s Day to you all. We hope you’re celebrating and that many of you may just be saying ‘yes’ right now to that very important question (Will You Marry Me).

Every couple of years we try to update the photographs in our galleries on here to make sure that we’re showing you our recent work. Today I’ve updated our main website slideshow with some new images. I love doing this but at the same time am always a little sad to see the old photos disappear. To combat this I’ve popped the older photos below so I can still look back at them and reminisce on some truly magical days.

Over the next few weeks I will also be updating all the photo galleries on here little by little and posting about it as I go.

Enjoy your evenings and we’ll look forward to hearing from many of you in the future when you start planning your wedding days!
