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...

Lizzy & Ewan’s Hodsock Priory Wedding

Grab a coffee and comfy seat folks, this post is a big’un!

You may remember theses guys (and this venue) from our blog post of their Engagement Shoot, but now we’re here to share Lizzy and Ewan’s wonderful wedding. You’d be hard pushed to find a more happy, smiley couple than these two, so it was no surprise that we hit it off from the get go.

Ewan popped the big question during a visit to Ljubljana in Slovenia, whilst on a bridge covered with love-note inscribed padlocks. They decided upon Hodsock Priory as their reception venue, but chose to have the ceremony at Blyth St. Mary & St. Martin Church in nearby Blyth. Incidentally, you may recognise the vicar in the photos – apparently she’s on Channel 4’s Gogglebox! Although the couple chose a plethora of suppliers for their big day, they also wanted their family to get involved. To that end Lizzy’s mum made the bridesmaids dresses and Ewan’s mum made all the groomsmen’s cravats.

Anyway, it’s time to let the pictures speak, so here are the highlights of the day (P.S. – keep your eyes peeled for the peacock theme!)…

What a fantastic day with two of the nicest people you could hope to meet. For their honeymoon Lizzy & Ewan jetted off to exotic Malaysia and Indonesia, the first of what I’m sure will be many adventures as Mr & Mrs!

 
 

Laurette & Stuart’s York Engagement Shoot

We met Laurette and Stuart at a wedding fair over a year ago and realised we were a good fit straight away, so were thrilled when they booked us for their wedding at Raven Hall Hotel, near Scarborough. For their Engagement Shoot we all decided upon having a wander around York city centre one evening in May. The weather had other plans for us, however, and opted to start raining as soon as we met up with Laurette and Stuart – but we weren’t going to let that stop us!

Here’s a few favourites from the session…

Charlotte & Scott’s Devonshire Arms Engagement Shoot

Back again with some visual treats for you. Today it’s the Engagement Shoot of Charlotte & Scott.

Charlotte and Scott chose Bolton Abbey as their ceremony venue, with The Devonshire Arms providing the reception and evening party vibe. Given that the majority of the day (and the majority of the photographs) would be at the latter, that’s where we met for their pre-wedding meet and shoot.

We knew it’d be a fun shoot as soon as we turned up – Charlotte & Scott were on fine form – so grab a brew, take a 5 minute break and have a look through some of our favourites…

Natalie & Marc’s Monkbar Hotel Wedding

Here we are again with another wedding for your to enjoy – this time the lovely Natalie & Marc, who exchanged their vows at Monkbar Hotel in York. The weather gave us a run for our money, with rain preventing us from going outside for the group photos, but thankfully it cleared up enough for us to have a wander into York for the couple photos later on.

Why not have a look through some of the highlights of the day…
