• 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.

At the end of May we photographed Rachel and Phil’s stunning day at The Tudor Barn in Belstead. This is a relatively new venue for us but one that we’re very much enjoying photographing at.

I started this day with Rachel getting ready with her bridesmaids at her parents house. It was a real treat that the Rhododendron (pink flowered bush) in their garden was in full flower and looked incredible for some pre-wedding pics!

David started with the boys arriving at Belstead Church which was extra special as Phil’s parents had got married there many years earlier so there was a real family connection. Rachel and Phil have a little boy called Matthew who was a little young to understand what was going on but he was a little gem. Even the vicar couldn’t finish the service without laughing as he wiggled his bottom at her in the aisle much to the laughter of the guests!

So many special touches and well thought out details that all came together to make the barn look extra fabulous. Lots of Rose Gold finishes and even the cake had a rose gold layer. I also liked the adult games in the garden and the ‘beer pong’ went down very well. So much to love about these two, their little boy and this day. Also, a quick shout out to the bestman who did one of the best ‘bestman’ speeches we’ve ever heard – it was funny, sentimental and perfect!

Rachel looked radiantly beautiful in her elegant dress and Phil looked every bit her dashing prince charming. As for Matthew … well what can I say, he just looked adorably cute in his little suit and bow tie! They are such a lovely little family and we wish them lots of happiness in their future ahead of them.

Here’s a small selection of their day for you to have a peep at

Many congratulations this weekend to the lovely Chantal and Will on their first Wedding Anniversary. We hope that you get some time off work this weekend to celebrate and that you have a gorgeous day.

You two are a lovely couple and we adore your photos so much. We wish we could have your wedding day all over again and we’ll look forward to seeing you again later this year at Charlotte and Harry’s Wedding.

Our first May wedding was Deborah and Jake’s day which was beautiful. Deborah got ready in The Farmhouse at Haughley Park Barn with her oodles of bridesmaids before heading to Norton Church for the ceremony and then back to Haughley Park Barn for the reception.  As those of you who read our blog regularly know Haughley Park Barn is our favourite wedding venue to work at, it always feels like home to us when we’re here and I love the different things in flower and of interest in the gardens throughout the year. It also helps that the staff are fab and we get to see lots of our other favourite suppliers who also regularly work here. For this day we got to see Tina and her staff at Crossways Farm Caterers who produced some incredibly scrummy Thai Green Curries for the wedding breakfast.

In terms of the weather we did have a little rain but we managed to get out in between the showers and the evening light for going up to the Bluebell woods was just beautiful. The barn looked stunning for this day and the Paper Lanterns supplied by Suffolk Marquees added something special.

Deborah looked stunning in her dress and I loved the bigger skirt to it whilst Jake looked equally as dashing in his suit.

Another relaxed day to photograph which couldn’t have happened without such a lovely Bride and Groom. We wish Deborah and Jake a lifetime of Happiness ahead of them and we hope they’ll stay in touch with their future news.

Another Spring Portrait Session I photographed was for Katie and Jacob whose wedding we photographed a while back now at Bressingham Hall and High Barn. For those of you wanting a peep at their day just click here. As Jacob is moving back over to America they wanted to capture some photos of the three of them (I also got to meet their dog, the wonderful Riley who is just gorgeous) before he went to keep them going until Katie hopefully joins him later this year.

We met up and went for a walk at Thornham Walks and it was great to catch up with the pair of them as well as meeting Riley. I adore their photos and Riley was so well behaved, I hope I may get to come over to America when you’re settled to take more photos of you all over there!

Here’s a small selection from their session
