Peter Boyd Photo Blog bio picture

Hello and welcome

I'm a photographer based in Yorkshire who specialises in wedding,
portrait and headshot photography. I also undertake commercial
commissions, including interior photography, theatre productions and
event coverage.

I am married to Kelly, my long suffering wife, and we live in Huddersfield with our cat, Simon.

I've always had a passion for photography, from watching my grandad
repair old cameras in his spare room to looking through the press
photography of my godfather.

I endeavour to create detailed, stunning and memorable images and my mantra is simple:- there's beauty in everything!

So, sit back with a cuppa and have a browse through my blog. Comments
are always welcome, so don't be shy (Although I will delete anything
that is abusive or makes fun of my hair!)

Enjoy...

Ruth & Kevin’s Goldsborough Hall Wedding

Hi folks. Today we have the wedding of Ruth and Kevin, at the lovely Goldsborough Hall, near Harrogate. We were chuffed when Ruth and Kevin approached us to shoot their special day, as they’d already seen us in action at the wedding of Kevin’s brother, Alan. We must have looked like we knew what we were doing! It also gave us the chance to check out the newly built Orangery at Goldsborough Hall.

In our usual ‘divide and conquer’ style, Kelly joined the lads whilst I captured the bride’s preparations. Then we all converged on the handy church next to Goldsborough Hall for the ceremony. It’s great when the travel between venues can be done on foot! Anyway, it’s time to let the pictures do the talking. Grab a cuppa and scroll away…

Ruth & Kevin’s Engagement Shoot

Today we have the Engagement Shoot of Ruth & Kevin, who we first met at the wedding of Kevin’s brother, Alan (who’s Allerton Castle wedding we photographed back in September!). Not to be outdone, these guys had chosen Goldsborough Hall as their wedding venue and a fine choice it was too. After a chat about the final details of their big day we went for a wander around the grounds of the hall to take some lovely portraits.

Here are some highlights…

The Hall’s Family Shoot

One of the joys of the job I have is meeting and working with new people. A lot of the time that relationship only goes as far as ‘professional acquaintance’, but every now and then you meet a person, or group of people, with whom you click. The subjects of this blog post definitely fall into the latter category!

Meet The Halls. Ok, strictly speaking they’re not all ‘Halls’ (due to marriage) anymore – but to Kelly and I ‘The Halls’ will always be a collective name for this rowdy bunch. Gill and Gordon Hall own and run Skipbridge Country Weddings, a delightful collection of holiday cottages and a picturesque caravan park/wedding venue. We first met them when their daughter, Bronte, approached us at a rather dismal wedding fair in York. She told us about their new venue and asked if we’d be interested in doing a shoot there. As soon as we arrived and were accosted by a comically diverse pack of dogs (from Chihuahuas to Great Danes!) we knew these were our kind of people. We’ve stayed friends ever since and when they asked us to do a big family shoot we jumped at the chance.

Here are our favourites from the shoot…

Joanne & Alan’s Allerton Castle Wedding

For today’s blog post we head on over to the rather stately Allerton Castle to join Joanne and Alan for their big day. You may remember them from their Engagement Shoot, at Temple Newsam, which I posted a few weeks ago. The more keen-eyed fans of the blog may also recognise Alan, as he was a Groomsman of another of our wedding couples Carly and Chris.

The day started (for me, at least) at the General Tarleton, near Knaresborough, where Joanne and her bridesmaids were having their hair and make-up done. Then it was off to Allerton for donning the dress and tying the knot. Kelly, on the other hand, joined Alan and his lads at the couples home on the edge of Leeds, to capture their preparations (and keep them in check and on time!)

Here are some of the highlights from the day…

Lois & Gareth’s Carlton Towers Engagement Shoot

This must qualify as the most ‘pre’ wedding shoot we’ve ever done – a full fifteen months before the wedding date! There is a valid reason, of course, as Lois and Gareth wished to use an image from this shoot for their invites. We’ve worked at Carlton Towers before and were thrilled when these guys told us it was their venue of choice. Plus, with the wedding very near Christmas, the place will look magical!

So, with the September daylight fading fast we headed out to start shooting. Here’s a few highlights of the evening:
