• 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.

Many happy first wedding anniversary wishes go out this week to Helen and Dave whose wedding we photographed last August at Chippenham Park.  This certainly had so many little finishing touches at such a stunning and relatively unknown wedding venue that it was a treat to be a part of.  We are thinking of your day and all those happy memories – congratulations you two!  This link here goes to their whole wedding story if you want to take a peep

We are always touched when our brides and grooms thank us for what we’ve done on their wedding days.  For us it is a privilege and an honour to have been allowed to photograph your day for you.  We have such a wonderful time photographing weddings and being a part of lots of special days that it almost doesn’t feel like work at all 🙂

Last weekend we photographed the lovely Harriet and Adam whose wedding we’d been looking forward to for a long time.  On monday morning following their wedding they kindly sent us the following e-mail:

‘Hi Hayley and David,

Adam and I just wanted to say how grateful we are to you for photographing our day, and everything else!!

Hayley, if it wasn’t for you we would have been extremely late for the church (not just a bit) and you were brilliant with Lotty and pinning my hair up! You kept me very calm.  Rachael and Roberta said you are a prime example for why everyone should have a female photographer!

And David, Adam said you were so lovely and easy going and kept him very calm!!

Anyway, we just wanted to say a massive thank you and we will recommend you to all our friends.  We cannot wait to see the photos!

Speak soon

Harriet and Adam’

We love this couple and their photos and can’t wait to share their images with you all in the next few weeks!

On what can only possibly be described as one of the hottest and most humid days of the year we photographed the gorgeous Rebecca and Joe.  It was a beautiful day for beautiful people, the sun shone all day and there was lots of smiles and laughter.

I started with Rebecca and her bridesmaids getting ready at her parents house and David started with Joe and the boys at the church. We are most thankful to their vicar who let me photograph at the front and David from the back so we had all angles covered!  I love the church ones and they make me smile everytime I see the kiss photo with the choir lady who sat next to me’s hands clapping in front of my camera and the vicar ducking down right into shot as they kiss … still it’s real and what happened and that’s what makes a wedding!

After the ceremony Rebecca and Joe were overjoyed when as a surprise the dog sitter had been organised to bring Bentley (their adorable beagle) to the church … I don’t know who was happier to see who, it was a brilliant treat to have him in some of the photos!

Back at Barrandov Opera Barn where they had their reception the grounds are gorgeous so we tried to use as much of them as we can in the photos.  They have a wild meadow area as well as a more formal orchard and rose garden.  Sadly due to the incredible weather the roses were mainly over but we still found a few to use in their pics.  Rebecca designed their wedding cake which was beautiful, the barn looked magical and their sweet table went down a treat!

Rebecca looked absolutely incredible in her lace dress and her bouquet was stunning (Tiger Lily Flowers did a fantastic job) whilst Joe looked dashing and very handsome … all in all a lovely couple.

We also worked with Steve Hood (videographer) at this wedding and what he’s produced for the couple so far looks amazing so we’ll certainly recommend him in the future and we’re looking forward to working with him again at another wedding very soon.

We adore the photos from this wedding and are hoping to make up a sample album from them soon (when wedding season quietens down a little and I get a spare moment).  We are delighted that the two of you love your photos as much as we do and here’s a little of a lovely e-mail that Rebecca sent to me after seeing them:

‘Hi Hayley,

First of all – wow! Thank you so so much for the amazing photos, we love them and have been blown away by them.  They’re even better than we imagined they would be! We started looking at them yesterday evening but we hadn’t realised just how many images there are so we had to finish looking at them tonight. There are so many amazing ones that we don’t know how we’ll choose the ones for our album!

Love the filters you use too – there’s a particular one which has quite a vintage feel to it but it also makes the colours vivid.

Thank you so so much to you both for your hard work on the day in the heat.  You really have captured some amazing pictures and we can’t wait to choose our favourites!

Kind regards

Rebecca and Joe’

Always lovely to hear that our couples are happy!  Here’s a peek at just a few of their photos from their day

Congratulations this week to Alanna and Ben who are celebrating their 1st Wedding Anniversary this week.  We hope you have a lovely time celebrating.  Alanna and Ben’s Wedding which we photographed at Haughley Park Barn last August was a gorgeous day, plenty of sunshine and lots of love and laughter – a wonderful day for wonderful people.

Back to Sunny Suffolk for our next wedding and that was for Hannah and Russell’s day which we photographed at St Mary’s Church in Woodbridge followed by their marquee reception at Decoy Farm in Melton.  This was another day this year where terrible weather was predicted but we saw none of it, not even a spot of rain and instead gorgeous sun, some blue sky and heat!  Really pleased that we had good weather as Marquee weddings are nearly always nicer if you can be outdoors.

Hannah and Russell are a chilled out couple who mainly just wanted their day captured as it happened.  There were a few little hiccups on the day such as the car Hannah was supposed to arrive in breaking down but nothing that ruined it.  As well as photos at the church and reception we also took a handful of pics in the Market Square as Russell works (or owns I’m afraid I’ve forgetten which one it is!) at Woodbridge Violin shop and had parked their white porsche out the front.

Hannah looked amazing in her lace dress and she had 3 grown up bridesmaids and 5 little flowergirls who were all beautiful too.  Russell looked very daper and so did his boys Toby and Sam who were ushers along with 4 other friends, a bestman and a ring bearer – wowzer this was a big but fun bridal party to organize!

Back at the reception they had chosen an unusual colour scheme and one we’ve certainly not seen before, the marquee was decorated in lime and neon green, with neon pinks and yellows!  They also had these gorgeous little clip on birds as wedding favours that were really sweet.

The speeches for this wedding I must say were some of the best we’ve ever heard – Russell is crying with laughter in the photos (I promise) as were a lot of the guests when the bestman did his speech.  Both David and I struggled a little to hold the cameras steady as we were giggling away … there are times when I wish that we did video too so I could have shared what was said and not just the reactions!

I could talk about different parts of this wedding all day as we thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the celebrations but think that most of you probably would just like to have a look at the photos so here’s a selection for you to peep at
