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.

A family portrait session on Walberswick beach by Suffolk Portrait and Wedding Photographer Hayley Denston Photography

On a beautiful August morning I got to meet up with Sarah and Tom again whose wedding we photographed many years ago back at Yaxley Hall. I love it when I get to see my couples again and they ask me to photograph their families.

Since their wedding Sarah and Tom now have two gorgeous boys, George and Rex. This was a wonderful session down on Walberswich Beach and I’m delighted you love the photos as much as I do. Spending a morning on a beach has to be one of my all time favourite things to do! Here’s a look at just a few photos from our session. I hope that as your boys grow I may get to photograph you all again in the future.

Kim&Maarten’s Wedding @ Ravenwood Hall photographed by Suffolk Wedding Photographers Hayley Denston Photography

Our next wedding day was the wedding of Kim and Maarten which all took place at Ravenwood Hall. This was one of those days where from the off we’d been hoping for a nice day as they really wanted to have their ceremony outside and thankfully, we were lucky and the weather was good. This is the first time we’ve done an outdoor ceremony at Ravenwood Hall and it was nice to have this setting for the photos. As usual my day started with Kim getting ready, when I arrived I was greeted by Kim and her dad (who were the only ones there) at her parents house. This is the first time ever that I’ve seen a bride get herself ready by choice (the bridesmaids went straight to the ceremony) and it was so calm it was hard to know what to take photos of at this stage (usually I arrive to chaos with lots of people rushing around doing things). This was a very chilled start to a very relaxed day. David started with the boys getting ready at Ravenwood and he said his part was just as relaxed. One really nice highlight to this day was two little boys who were chief ushers and had name badges and clipboards telling the guests where to sit … so cute and well behaved.

Kim and Maarten wanted as few groups as possible with the majority of their day being captured just as it happened so everything would stay lovely and relaxed. In the drinks reception they had a caricaturist who was brilliant at capturing the guests. They also had a country singer playing. We then went in to the Pavilion for speeches before the meal. Kim’s dad works at a brewery and he had commissioned a special wedding ale for them to give to their wedding guests as favours. Her brother had also made alcoholic and non-alcoholic elderflower wine for the guests …. what a merry family affair.

This day had people come to it from all over the world, it was clear to see how much everyone loves Kim and Maarten and wishes them well and it’s easy to see why as they’re a lovely couple.

Here’s a small selection from their day to have a look at

Ella&Callum’s Wedding at Hengrave Hall photographed by Suffolk Wedding Photographers Hayley Denston Photography

This was a little bit of a different wedding for us as it was a whirlwind of meeting Ella and Callum only three weeks before their wedding day as they’d been let down by their photographer at very short notice. I truly believe everything happens for a reason though and I’m so delighted we got to photograph this day as Ella and Callum are exactly our kind of couple who we love working with. Their day was a relaxed and chilled out affair with an earlyish ceremony time in the main hall before mingling outside for drinks and canapés in the beautiful gardens. This is the first time working at Hengrave that I’ve been asked by the couple to photograph them with the Dementor’s Statue (any Harry Potter fans will see the likeness although I’m not sure Hengrave call their statue this!). It is a scary statue and definitely a different bride and groom couples pic!

Hengrave is a beautiful venue and with such a gorgeous couple to work with it was a pleasure being a part of this day. Ella looked stunning and radiated 1930’s/1940’s glamour (this only changed slightly when she swapped her shoes for some more comfy retro looking 1980’s silver trainers which were equally fab!) and Callum looked so happy and handsome, smiling continuously throughout the day. Such a sweet couple who we wish many years of happy marriage for.

The flowers for this day as you would expect were also very different and they had vegetables mixed in with them … everything from Asparagus and Chilies to Broad Beans and Cabbage Flowers. Very unusual, quirky and fun! Ella also made all the biscotti as wedding favours … shame I didn’t see any left over bits as I would have sampled them as they looked yummy!

We are so pleased Ella and Callum adore their photos as much as we do, here’s a very small selection from their day for you all to look at.
