• 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.

Just a quick post today to wish everyone a very Happy Valentine’s Day.  David and I don’t tend to celebrate really (other than cards) but if you’re going out this evening have a lovely time.

Our congratulations go out to all of you who’ve got engaged today (or recently) and we hope that we’ll be photographing many of your weddings in the future. After Valentine’s day we do tend to see a large influx of enquiries from all of you newly engaged couples. Since the new website launched we are currently turning away a lot of late enquiries for this year and many for next year too so please get in touch as soon as you can once you have a date (or dates) in mind as we don’t want you to be disappointed if we’re booked already.

A quick reminder also that next Sunday (23rd February) we are exhibiting at The Suffolk Wedding Show at Wherstead Park if you do want to come and meet us and see the books and albums.  I’ll post more about the show at the beginning of next week

This week I am working on designing our new USB products (I’ve ordered my sample and I’m hoping it’ll be back in time for the show at the end of next week), I have ordered a few new business cards (this time trialing some new pearlesent paper and a new design) – if they look fab (which I’m obviously hoping they will) I’ll be ordering new stationary soon too.

I’m also working on the prints for Clare’s mum Jenny’s album as I’m hoping it’ll be back from Australia soon.  Looking at photos from Clare & Graham’s wedding last year makes me feel all nostalgic and makes me wish spring was here already so I can start this years weddings which I’m really looking forward to.

Here’s just a handful of photos from Clare and Graham’s wedding which took place last September at The Essex Barn, The White Hart, Great Yeldham in Essex.  Many of their photos appear in the wedding galleries on this new website as I have such happy, fond memories of their day and love their photos.  This is also the link to their blog post on the old blog in case you want to read it!

I have decided to bite the bullet and try to make a go of my Facebook Page for the business.  I think Twitter may be a step too far for me at the moment (plus I don’t think I’d manage to write things in only so many characters as I tend to waffle on!) but who knows what the future holds for the site.

I’m sure they’ll be a few stumbling blocks along the way whilst I get to grips with it but so far the feedback has been very positive

I will try to keep Facebook updated at least once a week (perhaps two weeks when things are busy although making excuses already isn’t a good sign!) and will link the blog to it so the current blog posts show

Enjoy and if you have any ideas or suggestions for Facebook let me know!

Just over a week ago I was asked to take part in a bridal makeover photoshoot for Your East Anglian Wedding Magazine.  This was something a little different for me as we don’t usually pose our couples or brides to this extent so it was a new experience and a real challenge.  I had a bride-to-be to photograph as our model, her name was Katie and she was brilliant all day (I only wish I was photographing her actual day in April as she was so lovely).

The Suffolk Bridal Company provided the dresses and flowers and there was a make-up artist, nail technician and hairdresser to complete Katie’s look.

As Your East Anglian Wedding Magazine will be putting the photos in their next issue (which comes out at the end of March) I have agreed that I will only put a couple of photos on here as a teaser so they keep the exclusive.  As soon as the magazine is out though I will write a full blog post and add more photos

Here’s just a couple of photos of Katie inside Hintlesham Hall in one of the four dresses I photographed her in – she looks stunning!

This is just a quick post to let you all know that the next wedding show we are exhibiting at is The Suffolk Wedding Show.  We’ll be there with all the books and albums and on hand to chat with you about your day to see if we can help you in your search for a wedding photographer.

The details of the show are as follows and we’ll post again nearer the time to remind you:

Sunday 23rd February 2014

The Suffolk Wedding Show – Wherstead Park, Wherstead, IP9 2BJ

11.00am-3.30pm

We will be on stand 23 (in the marquee)

Free Admission

This show is always brilliant and one we very much enjoy exhibiting at.  The Show is run in conjunction with Heart Radio and there are around 60 exhibitors so it should be a great day with a lot for you to look at.  There are always plenty of photographers at this event so you can find a style to suit you perfectly!

It’s always lovely to see so many people and we’ll have lots of beautiful books and gorgeous albums for you to look at.  If you feel like having a chat with us we’ll try our best to answer any questions you have and hopefully we’ll be available on your date to photograph your day.  We’ll also have a very special offer running on the show day (and for a short period after) for those who take the time to come and see us and want to book us for their day.

If you can’t make this show please don’t worry though there’s plenty on my Website for you to look at and we can arrange meetings at other times to get together.

We look forward to seeing you there and hope to be photographing many of your weddings soon.
