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...

Cat & Matt’s Wedding at York Pavilion Hotel

Our second wedding at the weekend was Cat & Matt’s shindig at The York Pavilion Hotel. The couple had chosen that most special of days to get married – Star Wars Day! Ok, so it’s not an official holiday, but I’ll bet you know a few people who see in May 4th with a tribute to George Lucas’ epic creation.

Cat & Matt got engaged in York. To be precise Matt popped the question at the top of the Minster – much to Cat’s surprise, as she had thought they were just crossing off another York tourist attraction. We shot their Engagement Shoot in York also, making sure to get some views of the Minster in as a lasting memory. The blog post can be seen here.

Kelly and I joined Cat and her bridesmaids at the hotel in the morning for their preparations. You know it’s going to be a good day if your bride/groom’s entourage are bubbly and fun, and these girls were just that! One of them had even travelled all the way from Singapore especially – now that’s a proper friend. Here are a (rather large) handful of our favourites from the day…

By this time Kelly had bartered a lift with the Bride’s brother over to Cat & Matt’s house, where Matt was preparing the ultimate in morning meals…

As well as flexing her hair-styling skills, Rebecca Ryan also whipped up this rather lovely cake!

The walls were covered in famously sophisticated quotes from various sources…

Father of the Bride Carl’s speech included hand-out literature. The bride was right to be concerned…

… as Carl didn’t miss his opportunity to embarrass his daughter…

… although, in the interest of marital equality, he also made Matt – a Portsmouth supporter – wear a specially signed Leeds United FC top! Oh, the shame!

Cat & Matt decided to turn the tables and demanded a photo with us – who are we to refuse our clients!
