• 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.

In the middle of September I was asked to photograph an awesome family to celebrate their dad’s 70th Birthday which was a real treat. As they’d had family holidays all their lives in Thorpeness it was the perfect place to capture them as a family whilst creating some new family memories! This family were so lovely to me and very accommodating of all my silly requests to do daft things!

As they are a little shy of social media they didn’t want to be named on here which is fair enough but they were very kind in agreeing that I could share some of their photos with you. Here’s a small selection of three generations to have a peep at

This next wedding was such a special one for us as it happened in their back garden. I think lots of couples would love to get married at home (but the current laws prevent this from happening) but Karen and David found a way to do this. Basically they did the legal ceremony a few days earlier at Stowmarket Registry Office (with witnesses) to get the legal part done and dusted. They then had the registrars come out to a marquee (supplied by the fabulous Anglian Coastal Marquees)in their back garden and do the whole ceremony again so it was every bit like the real thing apart from the signing of the register where they signed a special certificate instead!

Having everything at their home just made it so unique and special to the two of them and we absolutely loved being a part of their day. Even their very elderly cat got to appear in some photos! Yes it did rain (which wasn’t ideal for a marquee wedding) but everyone was in good spirits and braved the rain for some photos.

Karen and David are two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet and they instantly make you feel welcome and at ease which is lovely. It’s clear to see that they are both adored by all their friends and family and we’re certain that they’ll have a long and happy marriage ahead of them. We really hope that our paths will cross again with these two in the future.

Karen wore a beautiful fitted dress and looked stunning (having two ceremonies meant to different dresses which just has to be a huge plus!) and David scrubbed up well and looked handsome in his suit.

Here’s just a very small peep at their day

In the middle of September we photographed the gorgeous Kayleigh and Mark at their wedding at Wantisden Valley. This was a stunning day to be a part of and Kayleigh did all of their flowers from what they’d grown in their back garden which was a really special finishing touch that I just loved. They had their ceremony at Kelsale Church (just like Dani and James’ Wedding earlier this year the vicar still refused to let us take photos!) followed by their reception at Wantisden Valley.

For their wedding breakfast they had a very scrummy looking afternoon tea and instead of a wedding cake they had donuts!

Kayleigh looked beautiful and Mark every bit as dashing in his suit, I really loved his floral tie to match in with the rustic theme! These two just smiled at each other all day and it was clear for everyone to see how happy they are, we are certain that they’ll have a very long and happy marriage ahead of them. Here’s a very small peep at their day

Sometimes my wedding couples want to meet up for pre-wedding shoots before their big day and Anna and Chris whose wedding we’ll be photographing in March next year were one of those couples. As they live a fair way away we agreed to meet when they could next come back to Suffolk and although the weather forecast was heavy rain and thunderstorms we managed to dodge a lot of the weather and got dramatic skies and a gorgeous light! We even got a rainbow at the end of our session.

Both Anna and Chris are fans of the Suffolk Coast and so we decided to meet at Westleton Heath to do their photos whilst the heather was in flower. I love their photos and these two are an awesome couple whose wedding day we can’t wait for next year!

Here’s a quick look at the highlights of our session!

Our next September wedding was Sian and Matt’s incredible day at Copdock Hall. We’ve been fortunate enough to work at Copdock Hall now in most seasons (and most weather – although we’re still to add snow to the list!) with the lovely Kesha who works here and it was great to finally see the vines with all the grapes on them.

Sian and Matt booked their day at fairly short notice and so only had a few months to plan everything, you’d have never have known though that it was done in such a short space of time as all the finishing touches were stunning and I suspect that most of that was due to Sian’s amazing planning and organsing. They had afternoon tea for their wedding breakfast (I LOVE AFTERNOON TEA!) and Sian’s Nan made their beautiful wedding cake. The weather was a bit hit and miss for this day with a lot of drizzly rain but we managed to get outside in between the showers. Sian and Matt were determined to not let it spoil there day though and they both still went on their very wet wedding bouncy castle for a few photos in the evening.

Sian looked elegant and beautiful in her dress and Matt looked handsome in his suit. They both beamingly smiled at each other all day (other than a few tears during the speeches).

We love these photos and we’re certain that Sian and Matt will have a very happy future together. Here’s just a little look at their day.
