• 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.

This is the first time for us that we’ve had two weddings within days of each other where the bride and groom have the same name, it wouldn’t usually seem rare but up until now I don’t think we’ve photographed a Nathaniel at all and then two come along in quick succession. This wedding was Beckie and Nat’s day which all took place at Bressingham High Barn.

They both got ready in different parts of Bressingham Hall and David started with the boys whilst I was with the girls. It was then a short walk over to the barn where their ceremony took place.

The weather was good for us and we had the drinks reception outdoors followed by photos of the two of them in the absolutely jaw-dropping gardens! When we came in they had an awesome Macaroon tower instead of a traditional wedding cake and then their speeches before their meal when we left them.

Beckie could have worn a sack (she didn’t it was a beautiful fitted lace dress) and she would have looked stunning (and did) and Nat looked dashing in his suit.

Here’s a small selection of their day for you to look at:

Our next fabulous August wedding was Becky and Nathan’s day. I started with Becky getting ready at her family home whilst David joined Nathan, the groomsmen and the guests arriving at Burlington Baptist Church. The sun shone and the ceremony was beautiful followed by an afternoon tea at the church for all the congregation. We then went on to their reception at Vauxhall Farm. Despite the very dark black clouds for most of the day we managed to dodge the showers so both their afternoon reception and their first dance and dancing could all take place outside …. yipppeee.

This day was relaxed and chilled out with guests mingling and enjoying themselves. Becky beamingly smiled at Nathan all day and looked stunning in her gorgeous dress whilst Nathan beamingly smiled back at Becky and looked equally as handsome. These two are clearly made for each other and love being together making each other smile and laugh and having lots of fun. We’re certain they’ll have a long and happy marriage ahead of them.

One of the highlights of this day was the sunset which just got more and more epic as the evening went on!

Here’s just a small selection from their day for you to have a peep at:

My next wedding was just me on my own (as there was only 9 people) and it was such a special day for me to capture. I’ve known the groom Nick for many years now (he was one of David’s friends to begin with and they’ve known each other for decades!) and he is one of the friendliest and loveliest people I know so I was touched when he contacted me and asked if I’d capture Vicki and his day for them. As they didn’t tell any of their friends and family (other than those attending) until after the day I felt really honoured that I was allowed to be a part of their special, intimate day.

I started with Vicki, her parents and their two gorgeous boys at their house as Vicki’s mum had made a very stunning wedding cake (I bet it tasted as good as it looked!) and I wanted to get some photos of it. Vicki also wanted some photos too with her dog Molly who is now getting old but has been a very special part of Vicki’s life. Molly is a gorgeous old black lab and very well behaved for her few captured moments! I then went on to Cambridge Shire Hall (where the registry office is) to take photos of their ceremony and a few photos afterwards up Castle Hill. We then walked down across Jesus Green to feed the ducks (who despite us having bread would not come and eat which was a tad frustrating) and on to D’Arry’s where they had their meal and I left them.

Vicki’s dress was beautiful and the only ever maternity dress I’ve seen so far allowing her to feed their little one without having to strip off (but you wouldn’t have known it was a maternity dress had she not told me) and she looked stunning in it. She complemented it with some gorgeous bright pink shoes and a pink cardigan (I’m always a fan of bright accessories!) which looked vibrant against all the greens and cloudy skies! Nick looked very handsome in his suit and their boys were just adorable! Nick and Vicki are a wonderful couple who we have a lot of love for and we are certain have a very happy future ahead of them.

I love taking photos of days like this and I am very pleased that despite shying away from Social Media Nick and Vicki have kindly allowed me to share some of their very special day on here with you. So, here’s a peep at their day:

After a lovely afternoon at Haughley Park Barn’s Open Day yesterday we just wanted to put out a quick post to thank all of you who came to see us. We loved meeting so many people and are delighted that we’ve taken bookings already and will be part of many of your future days at Haughley.

Kate and Ryan’s Wedding day at Copdock Hall was our next marvellous wedding to photograph. These two are a fun couple who tease each other and are great to be around so it was wonderful to capture their day for them. Copdock Hall was looking fabulous and the vines all had grapes on them which was a treat to photograph. Kesha was in charge at the venue and just like the last time we were at Copdock was fab and ensured everything ran smoothly.

We had a lovely sunny day with only a handful of formal groups so could focus on capturing the day exactly as it happened. Kate wore a very elegant dress and looked every bit the beautiful bride whilst Ryan looked dashing in his suit. This is one of those weddings where both David and I had achey faces at the end of the day from all the smiling and laughing! We couldn’t wish to work for nicer people. There were so many lovely finishing touches to this day. The favours were these beautiful botanical boxes containing sugared almonds and the cake was made by their next door neighbour. Their evening entertainment was a disco by Dreamwave Events who are brilliant and Darren certainly bought the party with him.

The flowers were absolutely incredible in just greens and whites but then I would expect nothing less from the very talented Kaye at Kaye Souter Flowers who produces the most gorgeous arrangements and is a lovely lady!

Such a wonderful day and thanks to you all for making us so very welcome. We hope that our paths will cross again in the future and we wish you both a lifetime of happiness together.
