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...

Gemma & Iain’s Engagement Shoot

Time for an Engagement Shoot methinks – and who better to feature than Gemma & Iain. Gemma is a friend from my university days and is now the second of such friends to ask Kelly & I to photograph their wedding (the first being Simon & Becca). Gemma & Iain live on the ‘wrong’ side of the Peak District and, as such, we decided to head to Dovestone Reservoir for their shoot. Rugged landscapes and calming waters made the backdrop for the session – here are a few favourites from the shoot…

Amanda & Alex’s Skipbridge Wedding

Today we’re very excited to bring you a rather awesome wedding. We join Amanda & Alex, who tied the knot at St. Andrew’s Church in Bishopthorpe before popping up to our good friends at Skipbridge Country Weddings for their reception and evening do. On top of that, these guys hired Papakata to provide an ever impressive tipi for the evening!

As always Kelly covered the lads prep, whilst I joined the ladies in the morning. Here are some of the highlights…

Laurette & Stuart’s Raven Hall Hotel Wedding

We have another awesome wedding to share with you people – the coastal Humanist celebration of Laurette & Stuart at the rather splendid Raven Hall Hotel in Ravenscar. The hotel itself is situated on a cliff top, with fantastic views (from castle-like ramparts) overlooking Robin Hood’s Bay and the North Sea. When the sun is shining (which it was!) I don’t think there’s a more romantic view we’ve photographed yet.

So, after a questionable nights ‘sleep’ at a hotel in Scarborough, I set off for a nearby hair salon to meet Laurette and her ladies, whilst Kelly moseyed on up to Raven Hall to wake up Stuart and his posse…

… here are some of the highlights.

We had a great time at this wedding – not least because of those fantastic views from the gardens – but mostly because Laurette & Stuart made us feel so welcome and a part of their special day. Thanks guys and may you’re future together be even more happy than your wedding day!

Carolyne & Matthew’s Engagement Shoot

For today’s Engagement Shoot we have the delightful Carolyne and Matthew. The venue of choice is Oakwell Hall – a place we know well – although the couple actually tie the knot at Woodlands Hotel near Leeds. These guys were such fun to work with and Carolyne managed to brave the occasional wasp for the greater good!

Here’s a handful of keepers!

Charlotte & Scott’s Bolton Abbey Wedding

Here we are again with another lovely wedding for you guys – this time around it’s the turn of Charlotte & Scott, who got hitched at the rather splendid Bolton Abbey before celebrating with their family and friends at The Devonshire Arms just down the road. The day was glorious and the sun graced us with it’s presence for most of the day, making for some wonderful photos.

Charlotte had the luxury of getting ready at their reception venue, whilst Scott and the boys enjoyed their morning at The Cow & Calf, Ilkley. He was joined by Kelly, who kept them all in check and made sure their morning ran on time. Take a moment and have a look through some of the highlights from the day…
