Peter Boyd Photography 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...

Amy & Nick’s Nostell Priory Wedding

Back in August (on Kelly’s birthday, as it happens) we joined the lovely Amy & Nick for their wedding at Nostell Priory. The ceremony took place in Wragby Church, which is in the grounds of Nostell, so all the guests got to take a scenic (but not too long) walk through the estate. Amy and Nick had chosen music as their theme for the day – suitably so, as Amy in particular is a very talented musician able to play multiple instruments.

So, without any further waffle from me, have a look through some highlights from the day…

Check the little music-stand placenames – how ace are these?! pbp169w-405

What to do with that old guitar – a gift box, of course! pbp169w-415 pbp169w-429

Nick’s dad runs a company that makes ice cream and, as a surprise for him, Amy & Nick had arranged for it to be part of dessert! pbp169w-446 pbp169w-455

Before the wedding Nick had secretly been taking dance lessons, so he could sweep Amy off her feet… pbp169w-498 pbp169w-500 pbp169w-504

The first band of the night featured Amy’s dad on bass – that guy can rock! pbp169w-507 pbp169w-510

It’s not just Amy’s side of the family that have musical skills – here’s the groom banging the skins…
pbp169w-518

… although Amy then joined in with the second band’s horn section! pbp169w-529

Even a bridesmaid got in on the action. Here she is belting out Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’… and I mean BELTING! pbp169w-536 pbp169w-538

No reception is complete without a dance-off between the girls and boys. With moves like these needless to say the girls won… ;) pbp169w-543

We had a fantastic day with Amy & Nick. The guests were all lovely and the staff at Nostell were top-notch as usual. Here’s to a future filled with love, happiness and plenty of music!

Claire & Nathan’s Wedding at Middleton Lodge

Once again we have another splendid wedding for you – this time we joined Claire & Nathan for their celebrations at Middleton Lodge. In an uncommon twist Kelly was first on scene with Nathan and his groomsmen as they got ready at the couple’s home, before heading to the pub for bacon sarnies and dutch courage!

Brew yourselves a cuppa and take five…

Hannah & Chris’ Wedding at Carlton Towers

So it’s time for another helping of photo goodness – this time the wedding of Hannah & Chris, who got hitched at the end of July. Kelly and I had been looking forward to this one, as Hannah and Chris had chosen Carlton Towers as their venue for the day. We’ve been wanting to shoot there for a while and from the following pictures you can see why!

The icing on the cake was that both Hannah AND Chris were getting ready at the venue!

Anyway, I’ll cease prattling on and let you enjoy the highlights from the day…

Kayleigh & Andrew’s Wedding at Ox Pasture Hall

Following on from my last post, I now have the pleasure of sharing Kayleigh & Andrew’s wedding with you! The happy couple tied the knot at Ox Pasture Hall over in the North Yorkshire Moors – a new venue for us – with the ceremony taking place in the central courtyard. It’s probably the nearest we’ve come to photographing an ‘outdoor’ wedding, as the bride and groom had to stay under the roof of the building for the ceremony to be legal!

I joined Kayleigh at Ox Pasture for her preparations and was delighted to find that she’d hired our friend and ace make-up artist Helen Guy to add that touch of finesse. Meanwhile Kelly had gone to the chaps to capture evidence photos of their morning. Here’s some of our favourites…

Kayleigh & Andrew’s Engagement Shoot at The Museum Gardens, York

OK, so due to me being what Americans would generally refer to as ‘a klutz’, this post didn’t make it to the blog when it should have (i.e. two months ago!). But hey, better late than never…

Many weeks ago we met up with the lovely Kayleigh and Andrew for their Engagement Shoot at York Museum Gardens. It’s a handy central location for pictures, with plenty of different backdrops to offer. As usual, after a chat and a coffee in the Costa opposite, we headed into the gardens to start shooting…

Every time Kayleigh had visited the Museum Gardens she’d always treated herself to an ice cream from this hut. She was most upset that it was closed by the time we got there…
