• 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’s wedding I’m sharing is from Hannah and Lewis’ day taken in early June at Framlingham Church and Easton Grange. Despite having a slightly wet and blustery day this was exactly the kind of wedding we love to capture with a lot of thought and detail and a wonderful couple and guests.

We really enjoyed being a part of this day but as Hannah and Lewis don’t wish to share their main images on here (entirely their choice which we completely respect but at the same time are a little bit gutted about as the main photos are so beautiful and include some awesome confetti ones in lots of rain!) so I can only share some of the details from their very private day (which they kindly agreed to).

These two are a gorgeous couple who we wish a long and happy marriage for and we really hope that our paths may cross again in the future.

So, here’s some details from this wedding for you to have a little look at.

Today we send out our best wishes and congratulations to Claire and Mark whose beautiful wedding we photographed at Bressingham Hall and High Barn last year. Yours was a special day and extra sweet that your little girls got to be a part of your day too (just click here to see some photos and read about their day).

So, happy first wedding anniversary and we hope you get to celebrate!

A quick break in all the weddings to share with you a portrait session which I did with Amy-Jane&David and their new arrival, baby Anthony. I love it when I photograph weddings and then get to go back and photograph their children for them years later.

We met at Amy-Jane’s parents house so they could also be in some of the photos too. I loved spending some time with this family again and remembered how mischievious they can be when David unexpectedly tipped a container of water over Amy-Jane at the end of our session as their water flicking escalated (photo below).

I hope that I’ll continue to see their family grow and blossom in the years to come and that I’ll get to keep capturing those special moments for them

Here’s a little peep at their session

Our first June wedding we photographed was Charlotte and Alex’s day and what a corker of a day it was. We had a beautiful, sunny day with so many gorgeous finishing touches. I started with Charlotte and the girls getting ready at The Stables at Henham Park whilst David started with the boys over at the Farmhouse behind the barns. We then went on to Pakefield Church overlooking the sea for the ceremony … slightly sad there was scaffolding at the church but unfortunately there’s not a lot you can do about this (and we’ve seen a lot of scaffolding at churches this year), it was still a stunning location for a church and I can see why lots of couples would choose this church to get married in (although it was our first ever visit to this church). The vicar was lovely and let me stand at the front whilst David was at the back during the service. Both Charlotte and Alex play hockey and they came back down the aisle under lots of colourful, ribboned hockey sticks.

Anyone who knows me knows that I have a real soft spot for rainbow and bright colours so I was especially taken with the colour scheme for this day which was just vibrant and gorgeous … you’ll see what I mean in the photos!

After the church we then went back to the beautiful Henham Park barns for the reception. The barn looked exquisite and a special mention to the cake and the cake stand made by family members (all awesome as these were fabulous) and some fantastic floral hoops (again made by a family member I believe). The spanish food and Paella’s were scrummy and a different take on a traditional wedding breakfast. Speeches were really funny (and with three bestmen all of them stepped up to the mark and delivered excellent speeches) and the evening just lovely and chilled.

We even took a golf buggy down to the bridge with them for a few photos (where people come across for Latitude Festival) just to round off a stonking day!

Charlotte looked so beautiful in her fitted dress and Alex every bit as handsome in his blue tweedy suit. They are a really well suited, happy couple who we are certain will have many years of happiness ahead of them.

I could talk about this day for hours but for now, here are some photos for you all to have a peep at

This weekend our congratulations and best wishes go out to Meg and Joe who are celebrating their first wedding anniversary. Yours was a belter of a day at The Tudor Barn, Belstead and your wedding cape Meg was one of the most unusual and stunning takes on a wedding veil we’ve ever seen (click here to read about their day and see some photos).

We hope that you get some time off work away from your busy schedules to celebrate this weekend.
