• 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.

Another gorgeous wedding day to share with you today (apologies that at this time of the year we do get a tad behind with the blogging as we’re out photographing lots of gorgeous days) and that’s Naz and Charles’ day. This was in the middle of July and a lovely, local Suffolk Wedding to be a part of. They got married at Cratfield Church followed by their reception at The Riverside Centre, Stratford St Andrew. This day was all about having a relaxed feel with people enjoying themselves and they certainly achieved that.

These two are a wonderful couple with two gorgeous children and we can see a lifetime of happiness ahead of them. Naz looked stunning in her dress and Charles was very dapper in his suit. We are so grateful to you two for trusting us with some of the ideas we had and allowing us to capture your day as it happens. Thank you to Naz and Charles and all of your guests for making us feel so very welcome, it truly was a pleasure capturing your day.

There are so many lovely details to this day but one of the things we’ll remember most is lots of beaming smiles from everyone, it is clear to us that Naz, Charles and their children are adored by all their family and friends and it’s easy to see why. Naz had two adult bridesmaids, Elaine (whose wedding to Jack was fab and we photographed their day a couple of years ago) and Hannah (who is Charles’ brothers’ partner). We loved the bouquet throw in the evening that wasn’t staged at all ….. tehehehe …. and when Hannah caught it she was very chuffed! We shall watch this space and hope to hear from Hannah in the not to distant future if those rumours about who catches a bouquet are true!

Here are just a small selection of their photos that they’ve kindly agreed I can share with you.

Our next beautiful wedding to share with you is Chantal and Will’s day. When I met these two last year I knew we’d love to be a part of their day, it sounded so relaxed, chilled out and just a gorgeous day to be a part of and so we were delighted when they booked and we got to capture their day for them. This day was everything you could hope for and more. It kept the relaxed, festival feel they wanted and the sun shone all day.

These two are a wonderful couple and nothing phases them, this is the first time we’ve ever not had an organist turn up but we improvised and all went well (even if the hymns did have a bit of a twist on the originals!). The colour scheme for this day was vibrant and I just love all the colour everywhere! The reception was back at Will’s parents’ house in their back garden in wonderful Tipis (provided by Events Under Canvas) and they looked awesome. It’s always special when a wedding takes place where one of the couple grew up!

For their meal they had a range of help yourself buffet food and Wood-fired Pizza (provided by the lovely Bay Tree Pizza who always produce yummy food) and then for pudding a range of cheese and biscuits and lots of different handmade cheesecakes that some of their guests had made!

Chantal looked radiantly beautiful in her lace dress and Will looked dashing in his suit (we love tweed which looks so very stylish), they’re just a perfect couple who we wish a lifetime of happiness for.

I could talk about this day for ages but instead will share some of the photos with you

As many of you who read this regularly know I have stayed in touch with one of my fabulous brides, Melanie Knights whose wedding we photographed several years back in New York and have followed her and her family throughout the years. Last October I did a little bit of promotional work for Melanie Knights and the launch of her new business and as the business and it’s needs have grown I did another shoot in July for her. This time our focus was on her gym work, coaching and the food she makes. I absolutely adored being chief taster for the meal and was really touched that Melanie made all vegetarian dishes so I could eat them (they were all very scrumptious and yummy).

Melanie’s business as a Fat Loss Lifestyle Coach is brill and she is one of the most inspiring people who is so strong (in both character and body), I love working with this lovely lady and I’m delighted to call her my friend. I adore the slogan tops and wonderful, bright leggings she wears – just because you’re at the gym shouldn’t mean you have to wear boring clothes! If you’re looking to change your life and get fitter and healthy then I’d encourage you to check out Melanie’s website and Facebook Page to see if she may be just the person to help you in the right direction.

Here’s just a handful of photos from our shoot, I’m certain our path’s will continue to cross and I look forward to our next get together.
