• 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.

Following on from a post I wrote last month on reasons why winter weddings should be considered I thought I’d write one for Spring weddings too (and then I’ll do summer and autumn as the seasons come round). There are so many things to love with a spring wedding it’s really hard to know just where to begin.

For me, the flowers, the freshness and the warmer weather are all reasons to consider getting married in the Spring. It’s usually warm without being so hot it’s unbearable so you can spend at least some of your reception time outside. Later on in the season outdoor ceremonies are a real possibility (which are always wonderful) usually without your guests melting in the heat and no wasps around yet to pester everyone! I like the chillier nights still and the fact it gets dark early enough that most of our first dances have darkness outside (it’s an odd thing with the summer weddings when the first dance is done and it’s still light outside … then again it does mean some people do their first dance outside which is awesome but that’s for the summer post!).

I am biased as Spring is my favourite season (closely followed by autumn).  Despite suffering from hayfever I just love the anticipation of everything coming back to life combined with the colours and vibrancy as well as wildflower meadows and grasses all looking beautiful. Then there’s the blossom to consider too which is so romantic and delicate.

I’ve put together a selection of photos of spring weddings from the last couple of years to give you some ideas of what your spring wedding day could look like. I hope it inspires you to consider having a Spring Wedding and that we may get to photograph your day for you.

A very quick post today to thank all of you who came to see me at Haughley Park Barn’s Wedding Showcase yesterday, sorry David wasn’t able to attend to meet you all.

I really appreciate all of you who took time out of your busy lives to come along and see me. As always it was lovely to see both our existing couples as well as meeting lots of new potential weddings.

We’re both delighted that lots of you have come back already wanting to book us for your days and we hope to hear back from many more of you soon once you have your dates sorted.

Hopefully we’ll be seeing (and photographing) lots of you soon!

This is just a reminder to let you all know that we will be exhibiting at Haughley Park Barn’s Wedding Showcase this Sunday (3rd March 2019).  We’ll have our lovely little stand all set up and looking pretty together with lots of books and albums (including a special Haughley Park Barn medley)  for you to have a look at.  Although at this stage it doesn’t look like David will be able to join me for this one (we’re still working on our new little rescue dogs separation issues and he can’t be left this long on his own yet, please note for those of you who have weddings booked we already have dog sitters in place for your days so please don’t worry about that though!) I will be on hand to chat with you about your day to see if we can help you in your search for wedding photographers.

The details of the show are as follows:

Sunday 3rd March 2019

Haughley Park Barn – 10.30am – 4pm

Free Admission

It’s always lovely to see lots of our couples who’ve chosen Haughley Park Barn as their wedding venue (or those who are considering it). There’s a good number of suppliers to have a look at (but not too many of us that you’ll feel overwhelmed). Dates for next year are booking up really quickly for us so if you’re planning a wedding on a Saturday in 2020 please consider looking at photographers soon as a lot of the main Saturdays are going fast and we can only book one wedding a day. We also hate turning couples away whose days we’d have loved to have captured (especially at this stunning venue).

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 and we can arrange meetings at other times to get together.

I look forward to meeting lots of you on Sunday.

Well what an incredibly busy day it was at The Suffolk Wedding show yesterday, thank you to all of you who popped over to see us and have a chat.

We loved meeting you all and seeing lots of familiar faces too. We are delighted that we’ve taken bookings already and we can’t wait to be photographing lots of your days soon so thank you to all of you who have already chosen and booked us, we couldn’t do what we love without all of you!

If you haven’t yet decided on your photographers but think we may be perfect for your day please get in touch sooner rather than later, we only have a couple of 2019 dates left and weekend dates in 2020 are going very fast.

Here’s to lots of brilliant weddings coming up this year and in 2020, we are very excited about capturing all of your days!

Today is just a little reminder (I know you’re all really busy) in case you missed our post a couple of weeks back on the shows we’ll be exhibiting at. Well this Sunday we will be at The Suffolk Wedding Show at Wherstead Park, all the details are below for you. If you are still searching for your wedding photographers but are not sure where to start then this could be the perfect show for you, there’s loads of exhibitors and you’re bound to find some suppliers that would suit you and your day you’re planning.

Perhaps you got engaged on Valentine’s Day and are just at the beginning of planning your day? Well the internet is a great place to begin looking but sadly (in our opinion) it can’t compare with meeting people face-to-face to see who you get along with best and who will capture your day for you not only in the style that you would like but in personality too.

If you love what you’ve seen on our website so far and think that we may be the perfect fit for your day why not pop along if you’re in the area to The Suffolk Wedding Show this Sunday and have a chat with us. Fingers crossed we’ll be just what you’re looking for in your search for Suffolk Wedding Photographers!

Here are the details for you:

Sunday 24th February 2019 – The Suffolk Wedding Show

Wherstead Park, Wherstead, Ipswich, IP9 2BJ

10.30am-3.00pm

We will be in the Marquee on stand number 58

Free Admission (although donations can be made to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice if you wish)

This show is always brilliant and one we very much enjoy exhibiting at.  There are around 65 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!

This show is always busy (especially in the first couple of hours). Please bear with us if we take a little while to get to you because we are chatting to other couples which we hope you’ll understand. It’s always lovely to see both familiar faces (from weddings we’ve photographed before or existing couples who are waiting for their days to arrive) and lots of new ones with everyone at different stages of planning their wedding days. 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 for you.

If you don’t think you can make this show try not to worry as there is still Haughley Park Barns Wedding Showcase on the 3rd March to pop along to and we can also arrange meetings at other times to get together and talk about your day.

We look forward to seeing lots of you on Sunday!
