• 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 next favourites post to share from last year is Kayleigh and Mark’s wedding at Wantisden Valley in September. This was a beautiful day with Kayleigh making her own bouquet from flowers grown in their back garden. These two are a lovely couple and their day was just perfect, if you’d like to read more about it and see a selection of their photos just click here.

Kayleigh chose me the following photos as her favourites because:

‘They are of Mark realising that although his bestman couldn’t make the wedding that he’d done a surprise speech for him. He just looks so happy and genuinely surprised (which is amazing in itself because I’m rubbish at keeping surprises from him)’

Mark chose me the following favourite because:

‘I like the tallness of the trees, it’s getting towards dusk so the light is starting to fade and it’s just the two of us taking time out of a crazy day’

We chose the following two because I like how genuinely relaxed and happy they are with each other. I also love the birch trees and all the greenery as well as some gorgeous, warm light for the pond photos

To start off this week we have Amy-Jane and David’s wedding favourites to share with you. Amy-Jane and David got married last summer on what was a beautiful, bright summers day, if you’d like to read their story and see more photos from their day just click here. These two are such a sweet couple and we’re delighted to hear their news that they’re expecting their first child this year!

Amy-Jane chose the following two photos because:

‘I’ve always wanted a really nice confetti photo from our wedding and I think this shows just how happy we both were on the day.’

‘I like this photo just because it always makes me laugh. We finally tied the knot and It shows us how we normally are being silly.’

David chose the following photos because:

‘I like this photo is because it shows Amy the way she always is, and thats with a big happy grin on her face. It also reminds me how lucky and thankful I am to have her in my life.’

‘I like this photo because we are both very happy and the marriage is now official with the signing of the register. It makes me realise that after 5 years together we finally did it after all the planning.’

We chose the following two photos. The first one because I love how happy and relaxed they are and the second as it shows me just how smitten David is with Amy-Jane and that he absolutely adores her. It was nice to take some evening photos away from the heat of the day in some beautiful evening light that came through the trees.

To end this week I am very lucky to have another awesome wedding and favourites post to share. This time it’s from Dani and James’ Wedding that we photographed at Bruisyard Hall last Summer. These two are a wonderful couple who were up for all of our suggestions and despite the rain we got a big break in the weather to do all that we could have possibly wanted outside! To read about their day just click here.

Dani choose me the following two photos because:

‘We absolutely loved practicing our dance and even though I was dreading doing it on the day we ended up enjoying it’

and ‘It shows our beautiful venue and some lovely calm time we had together (out of the rain)’

James choose me the following two photos because:

 ‘It is a beautiful photo that represents a part of the day that I did not get to see’

and ‘Because it captures the joy immediately after becoming Mr and Mrs with all our friends and family around us’

We chose the following photos. The first one because I love the setting, stormy skies and just the two of them before the rain started again and the second one because of how happy they look after doing their first dance and routine!

Today I get to look back at a gorgeous, sunny day which was Pete and Fliss’ wedding at Rookery Meadow at the end of May. This was a stunning day (where I think we all melted a little as it was incredibly hot!) and we loved photographing it.  If you’d like to look at their day just click here.

So, as this is another favourites post here we go with Fliss’ favourite two photos as follows because:

‘Such a happy photo’

and ‘I love the barley in the background. Super photo’

Pete’s favourite two were the following because:

‘What a beautiful setting’

and ‘The army of ushers and best men’

They then both choose me the following ones because:

‘Such a funny moment’

and ‘Sums up the evening well’

We choose the following two photos, the first one because I love the look between the two of them after they’ve just got married and the second one as I do love a nice confetti photo!

Our next favourites post this week is from Charlotte and Dan’s Easton Grange wedding which we photographed back in August on a very windy day! If you’d like to read their whole blog story just click here. This was such a wonderful day to be a part of with two of the most happiest and sweetest couples you could hope to meet so I’m delighted that they’ve decided to take part in this.

Charlotte’s first photo she chose was the following one because:

‘This is one of my favourite photos as the ring my dad is wearing belonged to my late grandad, sadly he was the only grandparent missing that day and having this photo meant he was there with us. I love the fact that Hayley and David did not the significance of this ring and it is a photo I will always treasure.’

The other photo Charlotte chose was this group shot one because:

‘This is another one of my favourites, unfortunately the wind was not on our side on our special day but this photo beautifully sums up the personalities of my family. My sister’s partner is in RAF mode pose, my mum is thinking argh my hair, Dan just smiles his way through, Myself just can’t stop laughing at the situation, my Dad doesn’t care and my sister is thinking hurry up and get this over with!!! We have all laughed a lot at this photo and will always remind us of the weather, who would think winds would be so awful in August!’

Dan chose his first photo below because:

‘I’m known for taking chances and climbing things I shouldn’t!’

His second one he chose was this one because:

‘It is a natural photo’

They then jointly chose me the following photo because:

‘This is our joint favourite, as well as the majority of our families it is already up on 3 walls! Easton is such an amazing and special place with beautiful scenery. This photo definitely has a wow about it and we have had a number of comments that the picture looks like a painting because of the greenery without doubt Hayley and David have an amazing eye for detail!’

As with other favourite posts I always seem to struggle choosing the ones I like most as when you’ve been at the day the photos trigger what was going on and how you felt. I managed to narrow our selection down to the following two photos because the first one in the ceremony just makes me smile looking at how happy they are (moments like this just can’t be staged!) and the second photo for their closeness, it is clear to me (and I’m sure everyone that knows them) that these two are very much in love, relaxed and content just being alone together!
