• 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.

After a very long weekend with weddings and a wedding show we’re going to be having a little rest today!

This is just a quick post though after an incredibly busy day yesterday at The Suffolk Wedding Show to thank you all for coming to see us.  

So here it is, a very big thank you to everyone who took the time out to come and see us for a chat, we loved meeting so many people and are delighted that we’ve taken bookings already.  We hope to hear back from many more of you soon once you have your dates sorted.

We can’t wait to photograph lots of your weddings over the next few weeks, months and years!

Our congratulations this week go out to Mandy and Andy who are celebrating their first wedding anniversary.  Mandy and Andy’s wedding took place at Haughley Park Barn in September last year.  It was a small intimate affair and the first time we’ve seen the ceremony and dining area reversed (so the ceremony took place in the main barn and their wedding breakfast was served in the smaller end of the barn) and it flowed beautifully.  This was a lovely relaxed day and we remember it well with it’s many unusual and interesting details including Mandy and Andy coming into the ceremony together.  Here’s a link to their main blog story and a photo of the two of them

Our next brilliant wedding was the much anticipated wedding day of Jo and Nic. From the minute we met Jo (and her bridesmaid Laura) at The Suffolk Wedding Show we knew that this day would be one which we’d love to photograph so we were thrilled when they booked us for their day. Their ceremony took place at the stunning church in Woolpit (many thanks to Ruth the vicar who we’ve worked with before and is always fab in letting us take lots of photos as well as delivering a personal and sweet sermon) followed by their reception at the amazing Haughley Park Barn

For those of you who read the blog regularly I had already photographed the lovely Jo and Nic up at Haughley earlier in the year when the bluebells were in flower so I was extra excited about their day after all that they’d told me. The shire horses they booked for their horse and carriage were so majestic (and a lot bigger than your normal horses) I couldn’t help but take lots of photos with them in. So much time and effort went in to all the planning that all the details were so well thought out and the barn looked incredible. The flowers had a Midsummer Nights Dream theme and Rachel at The English Rose Florists as always had done a marvellous job, I especially loved the giant poppy seed heads! The weather for this wedding in all honesty wasn’t brilliant but we dodged the showers and they managed to have their reception outside and enjoy the grounds that Haughley has to offer, it certainly didn’t dampen the day at all.

Jo looked sublime and elegant in her silk dress whilst Nick looked every bit the dashing husband! They had the biggest and yummiest looking cake I think we have ever seen (as I mentioned in a previous post) and Nic made the cake stand. Dreamwave events did the disco in the evening and Jo and Nic’s second song (Sweet Child O’ Mine by Guns N’ Roses) saw the guests moshing and thoroughly enjoying themselves – this disco rocked!

I could talk about this day for hours … here’s a selection for those of you wanting to peep at their day

Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary this week goes out to the wonderful Sophie and Matthew.  We photographed the amazing Sophie and Matthew’s wedding last September and it was a local village affair that all took place in Balsham in Cambridgeshire.  Sophie and Matthew are such a relaxed, chilled out couple I don’t think anything would have phased them.  Here’s a link to their wedding story in case you’d like to read more about their day and a photo of the two of them
