• 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.

Today we start off the blogging of our autumn weddings! I love autumn weddings with the slightly cooler weather and all the beautiful changes in colour. I couldn’t have thought of a better way to start them this year than with Charlotte and Harry’s wedding. This was one of those days that’s so special as the reception was held in Tipi’s at Harry’s family home after their local church service. It was also wonderful to see Chantal and Will again whose wedding we photographed last year and who recommended us. Harry was Will’s bestman and so for this wedding the roles were reversed and Will was the bestman for Harry.

We haven’t seen a horse and carriage in a while so it was nice to see it again for this day. The sun shone all day and it was lovely to see everyone enjoying themselves in the sunshine. Harry’s sister had painted the seating plan for them and Harry’s mum had made lots of finishing touches out of pottery. The family dog also came out and joined in the evening celebrations although Harry did have to carry her off the dance floor as it was pretty loud once the band started!

Charlotte looked absolutely stunning in her fitted dress and the bridesmaids had the most beautiful, jeweled pink dresses that were very unusual. Harry looked dashing and every bit a true country gentleman. The two of them both looked so happy we’re certain they’ll have many happy years of marriage ahead of them.

Here’s just a very small peep at their day

Many congratulations go out today to the beautiful Charlotte and Josh who will be celebrating their first Wedding Anniversary. I can’t believe that this day was a year ago at Woodhall Manor as it feels like only yesterday. Such a happy, smiley couple it was a real treat to photograph this day!

I know it’s a work day but I really hope you’ll both have the day off and get to celebrate!

Our last wedding we photographed in August was Danielle and George’s day which was just gorgeous. Danielle got ready at Blackthorpe House where I joined her whilst David started with George at Rougham Church. They then had their reception back at Blackthorpe Barn.

We had good weather for this day again in the never ending hot summer which seems a distant memory now. There were so many beautiful finishing touches to this day, one that stood out for us were the stunning pottery candles that George had made everyone as favours from his family pottery and they looked incredible. So many happy and welcoming guests at this day who made us feel like friends rather than just the photographers. Danielle arrived in a vintage VW Campervan (I always love these) and the vicar was kind allowing me to be at the front of the church whilst David photographed from the back.

Danielle wore a beautiful fitted dress and looked radiant with a big beaming smile all day and George looked every bit as dashing!

These two are a gorgeous, sweet, gentle and kind couple who we wish a lifetime of happiness for. It’s clear that they are both adored by all their friends and family.

Still in August (yes I’m that far behind on the blogging) and I met up with the lovely Jess and Jack at Thornham Walks to talk through their final wedding details with them for their day in October. We also had a little wander and took a few couple pics as they wanted this before their day as they were both apprehensive on having their photos taken. They needn’t have worried though and their wedding photos are just so stunning I can’t wait to share that autumnal wedding with you in a future post before Christmas!

Here’s just a handful of photos from their session

At the end of August I had the pleasure of spending a few hours photographing a lovely family in our village. It was a pleasure photographing them all starting in their back garden and then going up to the local allotments and field nearby. I absolutely loved our session and your photos and I am delighted that you’re as pleased with them as I am.
