• 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.

Next up at the very, very end of July I got to meet Debbie and her wonderful family for a Portrait session and to celebrate her parents very special wedding anniversary. This was a great session to photograph and so lovely to capture a family of lots of generations coming together especially considering that the family live in both America and the UK.

I had a great time working with all the different ages and even though the youngest family member didn’t really want to be in the photos (he was too little to explain it to) I still managed to get some with everyone in.

Here’s a small peep at their session

A personal post today and that’s to celebrate Ansel’s 2nd Birthday! This is his first birthday here with us and his first in this country. He’s come such a long way in the (nearly) year that he’s been with us and although it’s been hard work at times it’s totally worth it for the dog he’s turning into. At the end of June his life changed further still when we got Ernie as a pup to join him and from day one he’s loved his little brother. Ernie has helped Ansel no end and his mischievious side is certainly coming out more since Ernie’s arrival (separate post on the whirlwind that is Ernie soon).

We’re looking forward to all the future years we have together and here’s a small selection of photos starting with Ansel as a pup with his mum (and siblings who sadly all died) when he was thankfully found going right through to some taken today.

Big thanks also to Noah’s Ark for allowing us to adopt these two gorgeous boys, rescue was definitely the right choice for us xx

To end our July weddings this year we had Melissa and Alistair’s gorgeous wedding day. This was a glorious sunny day and a little bit different to what you would describe as a traditional wedding. They got married at The Athenaeum in Bury St Edmunds first with only their immediate families present and then went over to the Abbey Gardens for some close family pics. It was then back to The Garden Barn at Little Bradley for a larger wedding reception with lots more guests joining. Both parts of the day were just gorgeous.

I love the small, intimate ceremonies but then I also enjoy the atmosphere created when there’s a lot of people and we are a lot less noticeable.

So much about this day was beautiful, Melissa looked absolutely stunning in her fitted dress and Alistair every bit as dashing in his blue suit and dark orange bow tie. The flowers were gorgeous colours and I am a sucker for bright sunflowers! The barn was also decorated beautifully and instead of a wedding cake they had doughnuts. For the afternoon reception it was drinks, garden games and ice cream in the lovely gardens at the barn before an informal hog roast.

These two are a wonderful couple who we are certain will have a long and happy future ahead of them. Here’s a small peep at their day

Today we send our congratulations out to Victoria and Ollie who got married abroad last October and we photographed their wedding celebration party at Hungarian Hall a few weeks later.

We hope you two got to celebrate your first wedding anniversary in style (perhaps on a lovely beach somewhere to remind you of your day). We loved so much about your day (just click here to see photos of their tropical themed day) and can’t wait to see you both again next year for your sisters wedding!

After a lovely afternoon at Haughley Park Barn’s Open Day yesterday I just wanted to put out a quick post to thank all of you who came to see me.

So here it is, a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who took the time out today to come and see me for a chat, I loved meeting so many people and are delighted that we’ve taken bookings already. We hope to hear back from many more of you soon once you have your dates sorted. It was also great to see lots of you again who’ve booked us already for your future days!
