• 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.

Our last First Wedding Anniversary post from last years weddings goes out this weekend to the wonderful Steve and Sam. They had their day which was very different at The Swan at Southwold last December (just click here to read about their day). This was our first ever surprise wedding to photograph and the most wonderful day to be a part of!

We hope that you’ll get to celebrate your anniversary over the weekend and we wish that we were having your day all over again as it was beautiful

During October I got together with Greg and Chris to have a pre-wedding meeting and shoot at Cambridge Botanical Gardens. These two are such a gorgeous couple who’ve been booked in my diary for ages so I can’t wait to photograph their actual wedding day next April. Meeting with them is like getting together with old friends where the conversation just flows and it was lovely to talk through their day in a bit more detail. It was also nice to be treated to wandering through some beautiful gardens and to a cuppa and cake (thanks guys, you’re fast becoming my favourite couple ever!) as well as capturing some photos of the two of them just to get them used to being in front of the camera.

We were lucky that the leaves were changing colour which look gorgeous in the photos. Thanks for being up for my suggestions and on the day it will also be much easier as all the people there will be your friends and family rather than tour parties! Here’s a small peep at our shoot

Just a quick post today, we’ve now photographed all our 2017 weddings and we’ve had a ball. Each and every wedding has been special and we’ve had a fantastic time sharing in so many beautiful days so thank you all for choosing us.

After our last wedding we decided to nip away for a short break on the North Norfolk Coast with Pip (our dog) and my mum and dad to recharge before getting everything ready for Christmas and what’s shaping up to be a very busy 2018.

I’ll write some more Christmassy posts over the next few weeks but for now here’s just a handful of snaps from our hols in case any of you are interested!

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
