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...

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:

Joanne & Alan’s Engagement Shoot at Temple Newsam

Today is the turn of Joanne and Alan, who we joined at Temple Newsam for their Engagement Shoot. The couple actually tied the knot at Allerton Castle, but chose Temple Newsam as a backdrop for their shoot due to it’s vast grounds and grand house. The one thing we couldn’t choose was the weather, which kept us on our toes!

Here’s a few of our favourites from the session:

Gemma & Iain’s Armathwaite Hall Wedding

Gemma and I studied photography together back at the turn of the millennium and it was a proud moment when she chose Kelly and I to photograph her wedding. Gemma & Ian had decided to venture a little further from home for their venue, choosing the rather splendid Armathwaite Hall for the nuptials. In a rare break from the norm (for us, at least) both bride and groom were getting ready at the hotel, which made for a nice relaxing start to the day for myself and Kelly.

But enough chat – you came here for the pictures…
