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!)


Durker Roods Wedding Fayre – 13th March 2011

Last Sunday we were, yet again, on display at another wedding fayre. This time around we were a little closer to home at the lovely Durker Roods Hotel in Meltham/Holmfirth. It was a welcome change to be involved in a fayre that was only 20 mins. drive away from our front door – previous fayres had been an hour or more!

Once again there was a great selection of top-notch suppliers all eager to flaunt their goodies (so to speak) and once again I snapped a few pics to share with you lucky readers!

After a few wedding fayres you begin to see familiar faces. The guys at Cartwright’s Courtesy Cars were on hand again with a fine selection of classic cars…

I thought I’d include this shot to prove that Kelly does put in the effort too…

To our left was a balloon company called Don’t Forget. Based in Huddersfield, these guys actually had loads more on display dotted around the venue – and the ladies in charge of the stall were lovely, but kept running away whenever I tried to take a photo!

To our right was a videography company called Evolution Video. These guys were really cool and were keen to emphasise the need for professional courtesy between videographers and photographers. Fellow ‘togs’ out there will know what I’m talking about! 😉

Mia Sposa are a company based in the centre of Huddersfield. Previously called Pronuptia they can be found next to the Kingsgate Shopping Center. We suggest you go and check out their beautiful wedding dresses and smart menswear – you will receive a very friendly welcome.

This lovely stationery was the work of Emma who operates under the company name thelittlebirdpress. Based in Meltham, Emma has a great selection of invites, cards, etc. to suit many occasions. Check out her website…

In front of our stand was a table dressed in wedding reception finery supplied by the nice folk at Elegant Chairs

Once again the dreaded ‘near-a-cake-stall’ curse had reared its evil head – this time directly opposite us in the form of Jo’s Cakes. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, Jo was giving away free samples of cake! Will the torture never end?!?…


Despite the flaunting of delicious cake the day was another resounding success. I met some lovely couples, made friends with some great people and had a good laugh in the process. And that can’t be bad.
