• 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.

The last wedding we photographed in June was Sarah and Jeff’s day which all took place at The Assembly House in Norwich.  This was a wonderful day and one that we were really looking forward to photographing.  Sarah and Jeff are a lovely, relaxed couple who were so excited about their day.  Their plans and ideas were ones we couldn’t wait to photograph.  Jeff is American and so there actual ceremony was going to take place in the UK and then they were to have a huge celebration part in California a couple of weeks later.  We were sad that we were unable (due to prior bookings) to also photograph your Californian part for you which we’re sure would have been equally fab (we are looking forward to seeing those photos in due course).

The weather forecast for their day was terrible and even as Sarah was getting ready the forecast over Norwich was heavy rain all afternoon with thunderstorms.  Towards the tail end of me photographing Sarah getting ready (whilst David was capturing Jeff and his parents getting ready in Norwich) the heavens opened.  The road turned into a river of gushing water and I think we were all hoping that it wouldn’t be quite this bad for the whole afternoon.  Turns out we needn’t have worried, as we made our way to the ceremony it was still pouring but then, on approach to the Assembly House it just stopped raining and we then had that lovely light you get after a storm and sunshine for the rest of the time we were with them.  We consider ourselves very lucky with the weather and were delighted that we got to photograph outside!  It also meant that Sarah and Jeff’s plans to nip away with me after the ceremony to the Plantation Gardens nearby to take some photos was possible which was fab.

We love your photos and here’s a small selection for those of you wishing to peep at their day.  Sarah looked radiant and beautiful whilst Jeff was very dashing and handsome.  You guys smiled and giggled your whole day through and we wish nothing but a long and happy marriage and a wonderful future for you both.  We really hope that our paths will cross again in the future.

This week’s first year wedding anniversary is that of Clare and Michael’s whose wedding day we photographed at Woodhall Manor last July.  Due to personal reasons Clare and Michael didn’t want their photos online which we completely respect and understand.  We would still like to wish you a Happy first wedding anniversary though and will be remembering your day and all that glorious sunshine and heat with very fond memories

Our next wedding was another glorious day in June.  This time it was Jo and Ben’s Wedding which we photographed back at Ben’s mum’s farm in Bressingham,Norfolk. This was a glorious day with so many beautiful finishing touches.  We were blessed with a stunning day and the weather was perfect as they had planned a relaxed garden party/afternoon tea on the lawns followed by a chilled out evening and an ice-cream van. It is always a treat when you get just the weather you’d be praying for on a day like this so that what they’d be hoping for and dreaming of could happen.

This was a large wedding with a lot of happy, smiley friends and family who were very welcoming to us.  We thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this day and adore the photos. We were pleased that Jo and Ben’s spaniel, Spot not only got an appearance on the cake that Jo’s auntie had made (which was incredible and I can vouch for the fact that the rainbow sponge layer tasted delicious!) but also got to come out for some photos in the evening. Jo’s parents live in Kenya and had not only flown themselves in for the wedding but all the beautiful flowers which Ben’s mum arranged. Vintage landrovers featured in the day and took the bride and groom from Bressingham Church back to their reception. Tonnes and Tonnes of bunting they’d all made adorned the canvas (big top style) marquee.

The ceremony was beautiful although I am always slightly surprised when the vicar doesn’t say you may kiss the bride as I love that photo. Still I’d already pushed my luck to the full by convincing the vicar to let me stand near the front during the ceremony (which I truly appreciate as the photos of Jo and Ben there are lovely).

Jo and Ben are a delightful, relaxed and happy couple who looked incredible on their day and didn’t stop beamingly smiling. If we could rewind time and photograph their day all over again we certainly would as we loved it so much. It was just one of those days where everything seems to go perfectly which was so well deserved after the huge amount of effort gone in! We wish nothing but a long and happy marriage for Jo and Ben and really hope that our paths will cross again in the future.

Here’s a very small selection of photographs from their day (just hit play or if you’re on a mobile device click the photo). As with a good few of the weddings we’ve photographed recently I’m sure that a lot of their photos will be making an appearance on the main website in the future

As those of you who read this regularly know we are Suffolk Wedding Photographers based in Suffolk and most of our work tends to be in this county.  However, the last three weddings we’ve photographed we’ve had to pop over the border into the equally beautiful Norfolk which makes a nice change and meant we got to see some of our favourite wedding venues in Norfolk.

The first of these three weddings was Dawn and Richard’s vintage wedding day which took place at Dairy Barns in Hickling.  Dairy Barns is a beautiful, rustic wedding venue and Hannah and all her staff there always make us very welcome.   There was lots of bunting, cath kidston materials and a real old fashioned, homely feel to the day. We had lovely weather for June (which we tend to find to be a month that can be a little temperamental) , not to hot or too cold with a slight breeze and regularly the sun popping out from behind the clouds.

Dawn and Richard are a really sweet couple who I liked instantly from their first e-mail so we were delighted to be able to photograph their day for them.  Everything took place at Dairy Barns and it was an intimate day with less than 40 of their closest friends and family attending.  They chose to have an afternoon tea which looked so scrummy.  Dawn and Richard made their cake themselves (I was very impressed as it looked like a professional cake maker had made it) and there were so many little details that made their day special.  They also hired a vintage VW campervan called Lucy which I love in their photos with the fields (the next day they went off travelling around Norfolk and Suffolk for their honeymoon in her).

Their ceremony (I have mentioned this in a previous post so sorry for those of you who’ve read this already) was one we shall never forget … it’s the only one so far we’ve ever photographed where at the line where the registrar says … if anyone knows of any lawful reason why these two should not be wed you must declare it now …. the farm cat waltzed in the back door with the loudest meaoowwww and everyone laughed …. what a perfect moment.

I love so many of their photos I don’t really know where to start with the select few on here.  I’m sure many of these photos will be winging their way onto our galleries later this year so here’s just a few to peep at now (just hit the play button to have a look at them).

Dawn has since sent me the following e-mail and we are as always grateful for your thanks and allowing us to be a part of your day. We hope that you’ll stay in touch in the future and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together.
