• 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.

Congratulations this weekend to Dani and James whose Bruisyard Hall wedding we photographed last July. This was a stunning day to photograph and you two are so sweet, happy and lovely that it was a real pleasure to be a part of your day. We hope that you get to celebrate this weekend and that you look back on your lovely photographs with lots of happy memories.

This may be the first new wedding we post for a while as the summer holidays are always a crazily busy time of year for us but we will write more once we have a bit more time (probably September). So, here’s a gorgeous summer wedding to share with you. At the beginning of July we had a gloriously hot and sunny day to celebrate Vicky & Tim’s Wedding. Their ceremony took place at The Athenaeum in Bury St Edmunds followed by their reception at St Peter’s Hall & Brewery. This was such a relaxed, chilled out day to be a part of and it had so many wonderful finishing touches. We loved seeing an outdoor first dance followed by their second ‘first dance’ on the bouncy castle! Vicky and her mum had made all of the gorgeous paper flowers, the bridesmaids were in a lovely, vibrant royal blue and the cake was made by Tim’s sister and brother-in-law.

When you plan for a summer wedding and time spent outdoors I don’t think anyone really expects it to be quite so hot and sunny. Thankfully there were areas at the reception where we could do all the group shots under the shade of some trees.

These two are such a happy couple who just beamingly smiled and gazed into each others eyes all day, they were a treat to photograph and we even got some really stunning evening light for a few photos in the crops in the field!

Vicky looked radiant in her dress which was finished off by her mum’s veil and tiara (such a personal finishing touch!) and Tim looked dashing in his suit.

We are certain that these two have got a long and happy future ahead of them.

Here’s a few photos from their day

At the beginning of June I photographed Kathy and Ali’s intimate and tiny wedding at Shepherd’s Cottage in Wantisden. These two are a wonderful couple who’ve been together a really long time and it was an honour to be a part of their very special day. So much love and laughter it was a joy to capture it all. They also let me take a slice of cake home which was a real treat to have with my cup of tea.

We were lucky with the weather and got to be outside a lot for the reception time. The foxgloves and Irises were in flower and then later in the evening I joined Kathy and Ali again for some photos at Dunwich Heath and Westleton Green which are two places very special to them.

Kathy looked beautiful in her simple yet elegant dress and the blue sash set it off wonderfully and then Ali looked equally beautiful in her blue suit with red tie!

These two quite clearly adore each other and the vows that they wrote each other were so touching and unique to them. Patricia Sharman did the afternoon teas which looked scrummy and Natalie at Windmill Florists did their gorgeous flowers! We also had Arbutus String Trio providing us with some lovely music.

We are certain that these two are a match made in heaven and that they will have a very happy marriage ahead of them. We really hope our paths will continue to cross in the future.

Here’s a small peep at their day
