• 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.

This weeks gallery that we’ve updated is the Ceremony and Confetti one. For all of you who look at the website regularly you’ll know just how much we love this part of the day. It’s the magic of two people finally saying ‘I do’ and becoming a happily married couple. We also adore confetti throws and how relaxed and happy everyone always is during these, it’s a really joyous moment that it’s lovely to capture.

To make way for the new photos we’ve had to let go of some of the older photos but I’ve put a few here anyway just as extras for you to have a look at

A very quick post today to thank all of you who came to see me at Haughley Park Barn’s Wedding Showcase yesterday, sorry David was poorly and couldn’t be there to meet you all.

I really appreciate all of you who took time out of your busy lives to come along and see me. As always it was lovely to see both our existing couples as well as meeting lots of new potential weddings.

We’re both delighted that lots of you have come back already wanting to book us for your days and we hope to hear back from many more of you soon once you have your dates sorted.

Hopefully we’ll be seeing (and photographing) lots of you soon!

Today we have launched the new photos for the Happy Couples Wedding Gallery taken in the last couple of years. Again, going through all the photographs from weddings who were happy where we shared photos on here in the last couple of years we realised just how many wonderful weddings we get to be a part of. The selection process for this gallery inparticular was really hard (I had over 1000 selected images in the beginning!) but we’ve tried to put a good selection in here just to show you what sorts of couple shots we usually take.

As with the other gallery replacement posts here are just some of the old ones that are now gone!

Just click here to see lots of those lovely photos

This is just a reminder to let you all know that we will be exhibiting at Haughley Park Barn’s Wedding Showcase this Sunday (18th March 2018).  We’ll have our lovely little stand all set up and looking pretty together with lots of books and albums (including a special Haughley Park Barn medley)  for you to have a look at. We’ll also be on hand to chat with you about your day to see if we can help you in your search for a wedding photographer.

The details of the show are as follows:

Sunday 18th March 2018

Haughley Park Barn – 11am – 4pm

Free Admission

It’s always lovely to see lots of our couples who’ve chosen Haughley Park Barn as their wedding venue (or those who are considering it). There’s a good number of suppliers to have a look at (but not too many of us that you’ll feel overwhelmed). Dates for next year are booking up really quickly for us so if you’re planning a wedding on a Saturday in 2019 please consider looking at photographers soon as a lot of the main Saturdays are going fast and we can only book one wedding a day. We also hate turning couples away whose days we’d have loved to have captured (especially at this stunning venue).

If you can’t make this show please don’t worry though as there’s plenty in the wedding section on here for you to look at and we can arrange meetings at other times to get together.

We look forward to meeting lots of you on Sunday.

One more favourites post from last year to share with you today and that’s Louise and Alex’s fabulous wedding that took place at Haughley Park Barn last October. This was such a relaxed and happy day to be a part of with lots of lovely autumnal colour and an ever so smiley couple! We loved being a part of this day and if you’d like to have a read and see more photos from it just click here.

We love it when our couples take the time to do one of these posts and both Louise and Alex’s comments are really sweet and we’re very touched by them. So, here goes starting with the two photos that Louise chose because:

‘This is one of my favourite pictures as it was one of the first photos that Alex and I had by ourselves at the wedding venue and shows off the wonderful autumn colours we had.  I think the big smiles on our faces demonstrate how happy we are in that moment and how comfortable we felt with our photographer.’ 
‘This is another one of my favourite pictures as it sums Alex and I up in one photo.  Our dog is the love of our life and we were thrilled to have him as a part of our wedding day.  What I also love about this picture is that on face value the dog is looking perfectly towards the camera and looking very photogenic however what the person looking at the photo doesn’t know is that there is someone stood behind the photographer shaking a bag of dog treats.’
Alex chose the following two photos because:
‘This is one of my favourite photos of the day as it really encompasses the meaning of the day and focuses the attention purely on the two of us.  The photographers have managed to make it appear as though there isn’t anyone else in the room but us and captured the special significance and intimacy of the day.’
‘This is my second favourite photo as it was a very natural shot – it felt very easy to forget that their was a photographer there and were able to relax and look at each other the way that we normally would do.  It was also at a nice moment in the day as it was during the welcome drinks (which is an intense moment with all the guests trying to talk to you and photograph you) and we were able to escape for a short time to regroup together and get a breather.’

We chose the following three photos, I love how relaxed and happy they look together just cuddling under an old oak tree, I then love them looking at everyone else during the cake cutting and lastly, when their dog joined us (we love a dog at a wedding!)
