• 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.

In the middle of September we photographed the gorgeous Kayleigh and Mark at their wedding at Wantisden Valley. This was a stunning day to be a part of and Kayleigh did all of their flowers from what they’d grown in their back garden which was a really special finishing touch that I just loved. They had their ceremony at Kelsale Church (just like Dani and James’ Wedding earlier this year the vicar still refused to let us take photos!) followed by their reception at Wantisden Valley.

For their wedding breakfast they had a very scrummy looking afternoon tea and instead of a wedding cake they had donuts!

Kayleigh looked beautiful and Mark every bit as dashing in his suit, I really loved his floral tie to match in with the rustic theme! These two just smiled at each other all day and it was clear for everyone to see how happy they are, we are certain that they’ll have a very long and happy marriage ahead of them. Here’s a very small peep at their day

Sometimes my wedding couples want to meet up for pre-wedding shoots before their big day and Anna and Chris whose wedding we’ll be photographing in March next year were one of those couples. As they live a fair way away we agreed to meet when they could next come back to Suffolk and although the weather forecast was heavy rain and thunderstorms we managed to dodge a lot of the weather and got dramatic skies and a gorgeous light! We even got a rainbow at the end of our session.

Both Anna and Chris are fans of the Suffolk Coast and so we decided to meet at Westleton Heath to do their photos whilst the heather was in flower. I love their photos and these two are an awesome couple whose wedding day we can’t wait for next year!

Here’s a quick look at the highlights of our session!

Our next September wedding was Sian and Matt’s incredible day at Copdock Hall. We’ve been fortunate enough to work at Copdock Hall now in most seasons (and most weather – although we’re still to add snow to the list!) with the lovely Kesha who works here and it was great to finally see the vines with all the grapes on them.

Sian and Matt booked their day at fairly short notice and so only had a few months to plan everything, you’d have never have known though that it was done in such a short space of time as all the finishing touches were stunning and I suspect that most of that was due to Sian’s amazing planning and organsing. They had afternoon tea for their wedding breakfast (I LOVE AFTERNOON TEA!) and Sian’s Nan made their beautiful wedding cake. The weather was a bit hit and miss for this day with a lot of drizzly rain but we managed to get outside in between the showers. Sian and Matt were determined to not let it spoil there day though and they both still went on their very wet wedding bouncy castle for a few photos in the evening.

Sian looked elegant and beautiful in her dress and Matt looked handsome in his suit. They both beamingly smiled at each other all day (other than a few tears during the speeches).

We love these photos and we’re certain that Sian and Matt will have a very happy future together. Here’s just a little look at their day.

This weekends congratulations are to Kim and John who are celebrating their first wedding anniversary.  We photographed Kim and John’s wedding on a wet November day last year at The Essex Barn/The White Hart but the weather didn’t dampen the celebrations.

You two are such a kind, happy and friendly couple that we knew your day would be special (and it was) regardless of the weather. So many lovely little finishing touches (just have a look at their blog story here)

We hope you’ll get to celebrate in style this weekend

Our first wonderful wedding to kick off September was Melissa and Ethan’s stunning wedding day at the beautiful Gosfield Hall.

This was the first time we’d photographed at Gosfield Hall and it certainly lived up to it’s reputation of being a beautiful wedding venue, there’s so much to enjoy and photograph in the grounds and within the buildings. Gaynor, Faye and all the staff we met there were fabulous. We even got treated to the most yummiest 3 course meal (cooked by a very talented lady called Nikki and her team at Gosfield). We hope to photograph lots more weddings here in the future.

Melissa and Ethan are a fabulous couple and we knew we’d love working with them. They are so happy and chilled out and were very relaxed about their day which is always a great starting point. The confetti for this day was one of the many highlights and was brilliant. I also adored their autumnal colour scheme – what a superb wedding to start our autumn season.

Melissa looked so radiantly beautiful in her dress and Ethan very dashing in his suit (the only thing missing was their dogs who sadly couldn’t be a part of their day), they are the most loveliest of couples.

We had a wonderful time sharing in this day and we are certain that Melissa and Ethan will have a very long and happy marriage ahead of them. Here’s just a very small selection from their day for those of you who’d like to have a peep
