• 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 Congratulations this weekend go out to Sian and Matt who are celebrating their first Wedding Anniversary. We had a wonderful day with you all last year photographing your day at Copdock Hall. We are so happy that despite the rain this didn’t ruin your day at all and I’ll certainly be thinking about you both bouncing on the bouncy castle with puddles of water!!!

We hope that you get to celebrate over the weekend and that you’ll look back at your photos with lots of very happy memories

On one of the hottest July days ever (so hot in fact that umbrellas were being used to cover people from the scorching heat which we’ve never seen before) we joined Sophie and Max for their wedding at Copdock Hall.

I started by joining Sophie getting ready in the bridal room at Copdock whilst David started with Max and the boys arriving. It was nice to see some familiar and very welcome faces during the getting ready with the very talented Karen (at Karen’s Beautiful Brides) doing the hair and Emma (at Pretty Faces) doing the make up. As always, these ladies are a pleasure to be around and do a fantastic job as you’ll be able to see from the photos. Sophie had a very floaty wedding dress and a flower headpiece both of which looked stunning on her and fitted in perfectly with their relaxed day. We had a handful of bridesmaids as well as the most adorable little flowergirl. Max and the groomsmen looked very dapper in their suits although they did melt a little in the 32+ heat!

The ceremony itself was lovely and a few tears were shed by Max as Sophie came down the aisle (I always think this is really sweet and it’s actually something we see very often so although our grooms are often embarrassed I think it just shows their emotions beautifully). The reception was mainly spent in the shade apart from when I had a little wander with Sophie and Max to the Vineyard where all the grapes were coming along for some couple photos.

Sophie and Max didn’t want their speeches and dancing photographed and so we finished early for this one but I’m certain the rest of their day would have also been brilliant. Sophie and Max are a gorgeous couple who we reckon will have a very happy married life ahead of them

Here’s a small peep at their day

Happy first wedding anniversary this weekend to the lovely Melissa and Ethan whose wedding we photographed at Gosfield Hall last September.

We hope that you have a brilliant day celebrating and that you get to spend it with your beautiful fur babies!

You two are a wonderful, relaxed couple and we knew we’d enjoy being a part of your day from the very first time we met you both. We wish that we could have your day all over again and we hope that your photos will bring back all the laughter and happiness from this beautiful day.

Here’s a link to their blog story and photos for those of you wanting to take a peep

In the middle of July (yes I really am that behind on the blogging I’m afraid) we had the absolute pleasure of photographing the gorgeous Katy and Danny at their wedding at Haughley Park Barn. This was a beautiful day to be a part of with such a happy, smiley couple and friendly guests.

I started with Katy getting ready in the Farmhouse at Haughley Park Barn and David started with Danny and the boys arriving at the church at Barham. Photographs in the church were sadly not allowed by the vicar other than during the hymn, coming in and going out and the first kiss which was a bit of a shame but sadly, there’s not a lot we can do when Vicars won’t allow us to capture it. A highlight for me was that Katy was walked down the aisle by both her dad and stepdad which I thought was really beautiful and lovely for them both that they got to do this.

Back at the reception we had ice cream which went down very well on a warm day with the guests and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The groomsmen all had superhero socks on which was pretty cool and the speeches for this wedding were incredibly funny.

Katy looked stunning in her fitted dress whilst Danny looked handsome in his suit. The gardens at Haughley were very advanced to where they would usually be in July but it meant we had a lovely lot of colour and flowers to work with which was a real treat.

Katy and Danny are such a sweet, friendly and happy couple that we’re certain they’ll have a lot of happy times ahead of them. Here’s just a very small selection of their day for you to all have a peep at
