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.

Fantastic portrait session at Southwold with Jenny and Chris photographed by Suffolk Portrait Photographer Hayley Denston Photography

Last week on what looked like it could potentially be a wet and miserable day I had the joy of meeting up with (and photographing) the gorgeous Jenny and Chris. I have been fortunate enough to photograph this lovely couple many times now (at their engagement shoot, wedding, other people’s weddings and portrait sessions) and absolutely adore them. Jenny and Chris truly are a complete pleasure to work with and I love being able to share their journey with them. At the moment they’re going through a bit of a rough time with trying to sort a visa for Jenny to go out and live in America with Chris (although hopefully this will all be sorted soon) so it was nice to do something enjoyable and take their minds off it for a little while.

The weather forecast was not good (two or one rain drops predicted for the whole morning and afternoon) but as this was a couple shoot (and Jenny and Chris were happy) we decided we’d go ahead anyway and just bring umbrellas in case of the worst. This could not have worked out better for us though as the seas were rough and we had really ominous black clouds and even a rainbow but no rain which has made this set of photos one of my favourites for sheer drama! I love them all but here are just a few to share with you now. I hope to photograph Jenny and Chris (and their family and friends) for many years to come

Gorgeous portrait session with Adelina and her family

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of being asked to take some photographs of a gorgeous little one year old called Adelina to mark her first birthday. One year olds can be a little tricky to photograph as they’re toddling around and into everything and if they don’t want to cooperate they won’t. I need not have worried though as Adelina was one of the most happiest, smiliest and beautiful little one year olds I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing.

I have so many wonderful images of her and her parents and family that I wish I could share them all with you on here. This was a brilliant session and I hope that I’ll get to continue photographing Adelina as she grows up

Millie and Steve’s Wedding at Thorpeness Country Club photographed by Suffolk Wedding Photographers Hayley Denston Photography

We only photographed one wedding in November and that was the lovely Millie and Steve’s day which took place at Thorpeness Country Club. This was a gorgeous day with so many beautiful finishing touches. I’ve already blogged in a separate post about the incredible origami flowers that Millie made but feel it deserves another mention as they were just stunning and so different (but in a good way). We also saw one of the most unusual wedding cakes ever that the grooms mum Wendy had made (when you see the photo those aren’t tubs of sweets but actual cakes!). What a talented bunch of people. With autumn and winter weddings you’re never quite sure what to expect weather wise so you plan for the worst and hope for the best (or that’s at least what we do). We were incredibly lucky again though as the day before and the day after the wedding were wet and stormy but we managed to have a mainly dry day with the rain joining us in the evening which didn’t matter as at that stage everyone was indoors anyway. I’m glad we managed to get outside for some photos and down onto the beach. Thank you to all Millie and Steve’s friends and family for making us feel so welcome and it was a joy to photograph you all.

Millie looked beautiful in her lace dress and Steve was dashing in his RAF uniform.

This was a wonderful day with beautiful people and we wish Steve and Millie a lifetime of happiness ahead of them. We hope that the photos will in some way allow you to relive many happy memories of this day for years to come

Christmas Wreath Making photographs by Suffolk Wedding Photographer Hayley Denston Photography

Hello all and happy December. Apologies that I haven’t written in a little while, it’s been very hectic the last couple of weeks and I haven’t found much time to sit down to write this. I will try to catch up over the next couple of weeks and write much more

Last Friday myself and my mum, sister, sister-in-law and mother-in-law did a Wreath Making Course with Alison and Rachel at The English Rose Florist. We had a fantastic time and were absolutely astounded by the results. It’s nice to take time out to do lovely things like this and if I’d tried to make a wreath myself I would have never ended up with a creation like this. Huge thanks to both Alison and Rachel for all their help and patience and for supplying us with not only all the materials needed but tea and yummy cake. We will be back to do this again next year I’m sure!

So for all of you who are interested here’s my wreath which is now proudly hanging on the front door

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!
