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.

Today’s favourites post to share with you is from Kim and John’s Wedding which took place in November at The Essex Barn (The White Hart, Great Yeldham). This was one of the wettest days we’d experienced all year with no let up in the weather all day (mizzly rain). For some couples this would have ruined their entire day but not for Kim and John who carried on and enjoyed their day regardless of the weather.

Kim’s favourite photo was the following one because:

‘We both look so happy and I love everyone’s expressions in the background. Also because we said sod the weather! Realising that it didn’t matter at all that it was raining!’

John’s favourite was the following because:

‘It shows us being together in our own little world and I love how happy we look. Also a really nice composition of the photo and the old building is a pretty backdrop to this moment.’

My favourite photo was the following one because they did embrace the weather and I just love the warmth and happiness between the two of them enjoying their day whilst all their guests were back in the dry barn!

Hello everyone, a very quick post today to let you know that we’ve got two shows coming up soon that we’ll be attending. As I know lots of you have very busy lives and your weekends book up early I thought I’d tell you a little about them now (and then put some reminder posts up nearer the time!) just in case you’re free and fancy coming along to see us.

The first one we’re attending is Haughley Park Barn’s Open Day (which is 2.30-5.30pm on Sunday 19th Feb) and the other one is The Suffolk Wedding Show (Sunday 26th Feb – 10.30-3.00pm). On both days we’ll be there with all the books and albums for you to look at, as well as being on hand to chat with you about your day to see if we can help you in your search for wedding photographers. We love meeting lots of new people but it’s also lovely to see lots of familiar faces too so, if you’ve already booked us (or we may have photographed your day already) then please do pop along and say ‘hi’ anyway and have a chat.

The details for Haughley Park Barn’s Open day (which is held at Haughley Park Barn) are:

Sunday 19th February 2017


Free Admission and a chance to look at a beautiful venue to see if it’d be the perfect place for you to get married. There’ll also be lots of different suppliers there for you to have a look at.

The details for the Suffolk Wedding show are as follows:

Sunday 26th February 2017

The Suffolk Wedding Show – Wherstead Park, Wherstead, IP9 2BJ


We will be on stand 23 (in the marquee)

Free Admission

This show is always brilliant and one we very much enjoy exhibiting at.  The Show is run in conjunction with Heart Radio and there are around 60-70 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!

If you can’t make either day please don’t worry though there’s plenty on my Website for you to look at and we can also arrange meetings at other times to get together where you can see everything.

I’ll post again about both days on the week of them!

Back to June last year now for Rebecca and Will’s favourites post. Their entire day took place at Haughley Park Barn and it was a stunning day to be a part of. We especially loved sharing it also with Reggie their dog! There were so many photos that I adored from this day that I really struggled to choose my favourite as they all represent different parts of the day and the emotions going on.

The first photo below is Rebecca’s choice for the following reasons:

‘I think this picture has been able to capture the atmosphere of our whole day naturally. Everyone (including out dog) having a great time together relaxing in the beautiful sunshine that we were blessed with. It reminds me of how lucky we were to be surrounded by our loved ones in such an amazing place.’

Will’s favourite photo was the following because:

‘One of my favourite things to do is make Rebecca happy and to laugh. this picture captures a moment when I’ve been able to achieve this. Very happy to say that I don’t think that crazy smile left her face all day.’

My favourite photo was the one below taken in the ceremony. Rebecca and Will had written their own vows which is quite unusual and they were so sweet that so many of the guests (and us and the Registrars) were both shedding and holding back tears (of happiness)! It’s so nice to feel and see a couple that couldn’t be better suited in anyway and to share in the special moment where they become husband and wife. We’re certain that their love for each other will last them a lifetime!

A winter’s wedding favourite post to share with you this morning and that’s from Harriet and Elliott’s day which took place at Woodhall Manor last February. This was our first wedding of 2016 and an absolute joy to be a part of. The Snowdrops were out and although it was chilly it was a dry day so we could go outside for photos. It also helps that these two are a gorgeous couple who were happy to go outside despite the cold.

Harriet’s favourite photo was the following because:

‘It captures how happy we were (and are!) together, and really portrays how we are together’

Elliott’s favourite was the following photo because:

‘It reminds me of how we support each other’

My favourite was the following one as I think it shows not only how happy and connected they are as a couple but also the season in which they chose for their day

Our next favourites post is from Kelly and Tom’s day which took place at Ravenwood Hall back in August. We had stonking weather for this day which meant they could have their outdoor ceremony as planned and ice cream afterwards in the garden!

Kelly picked the following photo below because:

‘This is my favourite photo from our wedding day, because it reminds me most how truly happy we were throughout that day. Before the wedding I was very worried about the day, but having walked down the aisle and seeing Tom at the other end of it, I just couldn’t stop smiling, all nerves had disappeared and although it’s a cliche it was one of the best days of my life.’

Tom picked the following photo because:

‘This is my favourite picture from our wedding day because it’s my clearest memory of the day. I’d spent the morning panicking about every detail I possibly could but as soon as I saw Kelly and her dad walking up the aisle I just felt so calm. It’s lovely to have pictures that are just how you remember the moments they capture.’

My favourite was the one below taken in the woods in the evening. I love that they look so relaxed and contented alone together after a day that seemed to fly by!
