• 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 just a quick reminder to let you all know that we will be exhibiting at The Suffolk Wedding Show this Sunday (24th September 2017).  If you’ve just started to plan your wedding day then this is a fab show to get you started as there are so many different suppliers here. We’ll be attending and we’ll have with us a whole load of books and albums for you to have a look at as well as both being on hand to chat with you about your day to see if we can help you.

We are very lucky that 2018 is already two thirds booked for us but we do still have a handful of summer Saturdays and other dates left so please come and see us early (or get in touch before the show to see if we have your date still available) as we usually book these last dates up quickly at a show like this where hundreds come through the doors!

The details of the show are as follows:

Sunday 24th September 2017

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

10.30am-3.00pm

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 70+ 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!

We love meeting lots of new people as well as seeing some familiar faces so please do pop along and have 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.

If you can’t make this show please don’t worry though as there’s plenty in the wedding section on here for you to look at, Haughley Park Barn’s Open Day (which were exhibiting at on 8th October) 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.

Many congratulations this weekend to the beautiful Verity and Chris on their first Wedding Anniversary. We loved photographing your day for you last year at Kersey Mill and your autumnal colour scheme was awesome!

We hope that you’ll get some time this weekend to look through all your photos again and relive many of the happy memories from your wedding day.

Here’s a link to their blog story and photos for those of you wanting to have a look at their autumn wedding at Kersey Mill.

Our first August wedding was Charlotte and Dan’s beautiful day at Easton Grange. Easton Grange itself is a gorgeous venue and it was lovely to be back here again. Dan got ready over at the Bakehouse whilst Charlotte got ready in the Bridal room. We were joined by Mike Savory who filmed the day and was a thoroughly nice chap, we’ll look forward to seeing his film in due course.

Charlotte and Dan’s entire day took place at Easton Grange which was lovely as you know everyone is in the right place at the right time. We did have a windy day with thunderous skies (which look fab in the photos) but again we were lucky with the weather avoiding any heavy rain (despite it raining nearby all day). As soon as we met these two we knew we’d love to be a part of their day and thankfully they felt the same (they’ve kindly written us a lovely review on our Facebook page which we’re really grateful to them for doing). We were so excited about this day and everything ran smoothly, it was a real pleasure to be a part of their day and to see two people very much in love!

Charlotte looked stunning and the coral colour she’d chosen for the bridesmaids and flowers was gorgeous – just a perfect shade, not too orange or too pink! Charlotte also had a little locket on her bouquet with a photo of her grandad in which was a really special finishing touch. Dan looked very handsome and they both looked so very happy all day.

We love these two and we adore their photos which will hopefully allow everyone who attended to relive lots of happy memories of this day for many years to come.

Here’s a small selection for you to peep at

just click here to see lots of their fabulous photos

Our last July wedding we photographed was a stonker of a day which was Dani and James’ wedding at Kelsale Church and Bruisyard Hall. We both started off with them getting ready in the main hall at Bruisyard and everything was very calm and chilled. They then went on for their ceremony at Kelsale Church. The ceremony itself was lovely but as always we are both very frustrated when Vicar’s refuse to let us take photos other than the coming in and going out (plus I set a kissing one up afterwards so they would have one and took a couple of cheeky ones during a hymn). This is even harder to understand a Vicar’s reasoning (often we get told they are protecting the sanctity of the church and marriage) when the videographers are given permission and are fine to shoot. Still we have to go with what those conducting the ceremonies say. I don’t know what Vicar’s think we will do during the service but we honestly stay put, shoot without flash and don’t interrupt anything (rant over for now!). Please therefore be aware if you are considering Kelsale church for your ceremony that photos are currently not allowed! Dani and James however took this in their stride and weren’t too worried which was great.

After the ceremony we did some bubble confetti before heading back to Bruisyard Hall where the heavens opened. Thankfully the shower only lasted 20 minutes or so and then we whipped them all outside for photos in the beautiful grounds. As the forecast for the entire day and evening was two spots (according to the BBC) of rain we felt incredibly lucky for this break in the weather. Whoever was watching over us we felt very grateful and the rain started again just as we came in for speeches once all the outdoor photos were done! Dani and James are a very smiley, happy and relaxed couple and photographing them was just a joy. Their guests and family were all lovely to us and we enjoyed every minute of this day. We worked with two new videographers to us (Ellie and Rich) at VT films who were fab and we can’t wait to see what they’ve produced.

The barn at Bruisyard looked stunning and Dani and James had made over 1000 paper origami cranes to decorate it which looked amazing. Rhea and all the staff at Bruisyard were very helpful and ensured that the day ran smoothly.

Dani looked radiantly beautiful and James every bit as dashing, these two make a wonderful couple who we’re certain will have many happy years ahead of them.

I could talk about this day for far to long and if we’d have been allowed to take photos during the ceremony then this wedding would have certainly been one of our new samples that we show to couples – instead we’ll put loads of these on our website over the winter months as well as in a new Bruisyard Gallery!

Here’s a selection from their day for you to all have a look at!
