• 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 July wedding was Kim and James’ twilight wedding which took place at Crabbs Barn. This is the first time we’ve photographed such a late ceremony time (6pm) and it certainly gives a different feel to a day when your couple photos are automatically at sunset as everything happens a lot later.

We were lucky that we had another glorious day weather wise and so they could have the outdoor ceremony that they really wanted. The bridal party was family and included their 4 children which was really nice as well as their brothers and sisters. Kim looked absolutely stunning in her fitted dress and James just as dashing in his suit.

For this wedding we also had the speeches outside which was an unusual twist and I for one wish more people would consider this as it really helps to keep it relaxed and a bit less formal. When it came to their couple photos we were very lucky that the crop in a nearby field hadn’t been harvested (as it’s all been a little early this year) and so sunset photos out there were a must and a treat to be a part of.

Here’s just a very small peep at their day

If you’re still searching for your perfect wedding photographer and are fed up trawling through the hundreds of us that appear online when you type in ‘Suffolk Wedding Photographer’ for instance then why not take a break from your online search and come and meet a few of us. You can then see things directly, meet the people behind the cameras and ask any questions you may have.

Over the next few weeks we are attending both Haughley Park Barn Open Day (which is 2.00-5.30pm on Sunday 7th October) and The Suffolk Wedding Show (14th October).  On both days we’ll be there with all the books and albums and on hand to chat with you about your day to see if we can help you and may be ideal for your day.

The details for Haughley Park Barn’s Open day (which is held at Haughley Park Barn) are:

Sunday 7th October 2018

2.00pm-5.30pm

Free Admission – This is one of our favourite venues to photograph at and if you come along to their open day I’m sure you’ll see why! I’ll post more on this next week before their Open Day as a reminder in case you miss this post

Brief details for The Suffolk Wedding show are as follows and again I’ll post the week of the show more details and as a reminder:

Sunday 14th October 2018

The Suffolk Wedding Show – Woolverstone Hall

10.30am-3.00pm

We will be on stand 40 (in the Orangery)

Free Admission with oodles of suppliers in all areas you could possibly dream off when planning your wedding.  There are also always plenty of photographers at this event so you can find a style to suit you perfectly!

It’s always lovely for us to meet so many people at these days and to talk about your plans and what you’re hoping for.  If you feel like having a chat with us we’ll try our best to answer any questions you have and hopefully we’ll be available on your date to photograph your day. It’s also nice to see so many of you who’ve already booked us for your days so if you’re coming to the show anyway please pop over and say hi as we’d love to see you.

If you can’t make either day please don’t worry though there’s plenty on the Wedding section of our website for you to look at and we can also arrange meetings at other times to get together where you can see everything.

We look forward to seeing many of you and hope to be photographing many of your weddings soon.

Next up for us was Caroline and Jason’s Wedding which was just one of the most happiest and beautiful days which happened in late July. I started at home with Caroline getting ready and was joined by the fabulous Karen (at Karen’s Beautiful Brides) who was doing some stunning hair and the lovely Emma (at Pretty Faces) who was doing some equally beautiful make up. The flowers were absolutely incredible and very vibrant and were produced by the very talented Judy (at Tiger Lilly Flowers), if you’d have said to me beforehand we’re combining corals and bright yellows I wouldn’t have thought it would work but it certainly did!

David started with Jason and his groomsmen getting ready at The Premier Inn in Bury before their ceremony at St Mary’s Church in Bury St Edmunds which is just an astoundingly beautiful church. We had a glorious summers day for this wedding and after the ceremony we went back to Chippenham Park for their reception. Caroline and Jason are VW Camper Van mad so it was nice that two of these took them and the bridesmaids to their reception. It was a slightly blustery day and at one point Caroline’s veil did fly out and we thought it would never be seen again but thankfully it was caught before it got stuck around the chimneys!

These two are the most delightful and happy couple and they took everything in their stride. Caroline’s dress was beautiful with a pattern on it and pockets (my kind of dress) and she looked radiantly beautiful in it whilst Jason looked very handsome in his suit.

We loved everything about this day and are certain that these two will have a very long and happy marriage ahead of them.

Here’s a small look at their day

Many congratulations today to Karen and David on their first wedding anniversary. We photographed their beautiful, intimate day in their back garden last year with a stunning marquee (set up by Anglian Coastal Marquees), although we had rain on their day it just made for some gorgeous stormy sky photos!

We know that you two lead very hectic lives with busy schedules but we hope that you get to take some time in your Zen Garden today to celebrate!

This weekend our congratulations and best wishes go out to the gorgeous Kayleigh and Mark on their First Wedding Anniversary. We had a fantastic day celebrating with you all at Wantisden Valley and we hope that you get to celebrate this weekend with some bubbles. I still can’t believe you did your own flowers Kayleigh and even grew them yourself which is just incredible and they looked stunning.
