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 Engagement Shoot at Hodsock Priory

Time for some images that celebrate the arrival of Spring and it just so happens we have here the Engagement Shoot of Lizzy & Ewan, shot at the beautiful Hodsock Priory. Lizzy & Ewan get married in May, but decided to have their pre-wedding shoot in February to take full advantage of one of Hodsocks main seasonal attractions – the snowdrops!

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

 

We started the shoot in the lovely gardens of the main house…

Tanya & Martin’s Wortley Hall Wedding

We’re back again with another wedding for you – this time we join the lovely Tanya and Martin for their big day at Wortley Hall. Snow had recently fallen and still remained around most of the grounds, making for a very picturesque winter morning. Tanya and her bridesmaids enjoyed their morning preparations in a suite in the main building, whilst Martin and the lads were in one of the cottages on the grounds.

The wedding was full of nice little touches – from Tanya’s wellies to the light-up letters they had in the evening. Here are a few highlights from the day…

Emma & David’s Rowley Manor Engagement Shoot

With their wedding only a few weeks away, I thought I’d share with you Emma and David’s Engagement shoot. These guys have chosen Rowley Manor as their venue and it is also where we met them for this session. It’s a lovely Georgian manor surrounded by fields on the outskirts of Hull. After a coffee and a catch-up it was off to the photoshoot – here’s a few favourites…

Tanya & Martin’s Wortley Hall Engagement Shoot

Here we have the lovely Tanya & Martin who we arranged to meet at their wedding venue, Wortley Hall, for their Engagement Shoot. The day was crisp (read: cold) and the ground was still dusted with remnants of snow from the days before. We soldiered on regardless and below are my favourites from the day…

Despite the cold January air, Tanya & Martin were great to work with – very accommodating of my ‘lean on this’ or ‘sit on that’ demands! Stay tuned for their wedding day highlights on the blog soon.

 
 

Katie & Jamie’s Fairfield Manor Wedding

Well here we are at last; our first wedding of 2015 and it certainly was a fun way to kick off the new year. We first met Katie at a wedding fair back in 2013 and instantly hit it off – so much so that Katie (by her own admission) had decided we were to be her photographers without actually telling us or booking a consultation until six months afterwards! Needless to say the consultation was a success and the booking made official. We even got to meet Jamie’s pet geckos up close.

The couple both got ready at the wedding venue, Fairfield Manor – in separate rooms, of course – before heading down to the ceremony room. Once the formalities were finished everyone (bravely) headed outside into the bracingly ‘fresh’ air for the formal group photos – although Katie did tell us that she gave her guests no choice in the matter! We then gave Katie and Jamie a break from their schmoozing to get some lovely couple portraits. It was at this point that Kelly nearly injured herself by tripping over her turn-ups twice in quick succession! Crisis (narrowly) averted we finished up the portraits intact and headed back to the reception for the wedding breakfast and evening’s festivities. Have a look at some of the highlights of the day…

March 14, 2015 - 5:48 pm Jenny - This looks like it must have been quite a fun wedding, a little silliness can really make the day memorable. Nice to see another flowy kind of dress too, you don't see them as often anymore but it clearly suits well here.
