• 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.

Congratulations this week to Paula and Alun on their first wedding anniversary.  We hope that you have a wonderful time celebrating and that you have as lovlier weather as you did on your wedding day.  Paula and Alun got married at the stunning Cley Windmill last July with their nearest and dearest surrounding them.  It’s such a treat when we get to photograph small and intimate weddings and we were welcomed in with open arms by their friends and family which made it an absolute pleasure to photograph you all.  Your images feature heavily on the website and we hope that our paths may cross again in the future.  Here’s a link to their blog story in case you’d like to read more about their day and a photo of the two of them

Well hello all of you who read this regularly, I hope everyone is well.  At this time of year as I’m sure you can imagine we are completely snowed under with wedding work.  It means we’re out of the office a lot and when we are in we’re busy sorting and working on all the gorgeous photographs for our couples.  The slight downside is that I’m not sure I can keep up the blogging quite so frequently but I’ll try to write at least once every couple of weeks.

In the last week and a bit we’ve photographed two gorgeous weddings.

Firstly Dawn and Richard’s wedding which we photographed at Dairy Barns, Hickling in Norfolk.  This was a special, intimate day with lots of cake, laughter and a scrummy afternoon tea.  We had a wonderful time and the sun shone on us.  They had so many amazing finishing touches that I can’t wait to share their photos and ideas.  This wedding will stay in my mind forever as when the registrar said: ‘if anyone knows of any lawful reason why these two should not be married you must declare it now’ … there’s usually a silence at this part but not at this wedding as the farm cat with comedic timing waltz’s through the door with a very loud ‘meaowwww’. What a perfect ice-breaker and a way to make everyone giggle!

The next wedding was a Suffolk Wedding through and through and everything a wedding should be.  Beautiful day, stunning location, happy guests and of course a gorgeous bride and groom.  This was Jo and Ben’s day which took part at Bressingham Church followed by a marquee (but more like a canvas big top tent) reception at his family home also in Bressingham. Sunny weather shone down on us, people lounged in deck chairs eating cake and afternoon tea on the lawns, others played on the bouncy castle and lazed in the hammocks, a truly relaxing wedding. This was an absolutely brilliant day in every way and I wish we could photograph it all over again.  Another wedding that I can’t wait to share the photos from.

Both of these weddings I’m certain will have photos on the main website pages later this year when I update them!

Lastly, for those of you who’ve expressed concern about how Pip (our dog) is doing after her operation … she’s fine and well thanks. Here’s a quick pic of her showing off her teeth and enjoying being in the sunshine in the garden!

I’ll write again soon …..

This week my congratulations go out to the lovely Lisa and Alex on their first wedding anniversary.  Congratulations you two and we hope you have a fantastic time celebrating.  We photographed Lisa and Alex’s Wedding last June at The West Wing in Ickworth.  During the wedding reception the wind got up so much that all the drinks blew over but other than that we had pretty good weather.  It was also great to have all the wildflowers out in the meadow too.  Here’s a link to their blog story if you’d like to read more and a photo of the two of them

At the end of last week I had the pleasure in meeting up with Jenny and Chris and her family again for a portrait session to celebrate a vow renewal for her auntie and uncle.  The weather forecast was dreadful but somehow we managed to just avoid the thunderstorms and heavy rain and got to do all their photos in the back garden.  There was only 10 of us in total and you were all brilliant at being photographed.  It was so nice to see you all again and share in another special occasion with the family.

We had photographed the gorgeous Jenny and Chris previously (almost a couple of years ago) at their wedding which was a wonderful village affair with so many thoughtful and lovely details.  If you’d like to read about Jenny and Chris’ Wedding just click here and it’ll take you to their old blog post.  Jenny and Chris are emigrating to America (where Chris is from) later this year so I’m glad I could help create some happy memories for you to take with you.  Here’s a very small selection for those of you who would like to have a peep at our session.

Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary this week to Liz and Tom – congratulations you wonderful people.  We had such a brilliant time photographing your wedding last June at Otley Hall that we just wish we could do it all again.  Despite the worst summer storm I have ever been witness to, you both took everything in your stride and nothing spoilt your day.  We absolutely love your photos and many of them appear on the website, we truly hope that our paths will cross again in the future.  Here’s a link to Liz and Tom’s blog post and a photo from their day.  For a June wedding we were incredibly lucky that the wisteria was still in bloom and looks superb in some of your photos
