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!)


Gemma & Jamie’s British Themed Wedding

Ok, so we’re now up to September on the blog – soon we’ll be up-to-date. Really sorry for the backlog it’s just been a crazy few months!

Back in September we were privileged to photograph the wedding day of Gemma & Jamie! And here the lovely couple are…

Their wedding ceremony was at the beautiful Treasurer’s House in the centre of York and then onto the unique National Railway Museum for the Reception. They had chosen a British theme for their wedding day and had gone all out on the decorations of both venues. You’ll see in the photographs how much effort they put in and that it really paid off as they had an absolutely beautiful day!

Anyway the day started off with Gemma getting ready at Dannie Lea Hair and Beauty Salon in the centre of York and then moved onto the boutique Hotel Du Vin to get dressed.

Gemma, all ready to go… and beaming as usual. We didn’t once struggle to get her to smile for the camera throughout the whole day!

Meanwhile Kelly was with the lads who were getting ready round the corner at the Premier Inn.

I especially like No 2 on the list of Best Man’s Duties which states that the Best Man has to ensure that the Groom arrives on time and in a fit and sober state! Coffee it is then.

As everything in York is pretty close together – and parking is a nightmare – the Groom’s party took a leisurely stroll through the city to the Treasurer’s House. Luckily it was a beautifully warm day.

Patiently waiting for the arrival of the bride.

The bride arrives.

We’ve photographed a few weddings now with the same Registrar that was performing the ceremony and can honestly say that he is brilliant! So easy going and makes the ceremony one to remember.

Here’s the Treasurer’s House in all it’s glory. It is such a great venue and the staff there are amazing – they can’t do enough for you. They even had a step-ladder ready for us to take the group shots as they knew we weren’t able to carry ours from the car park. Brilliant!

Here are just some of the decorations that Gemma and Jamie had prepared all over the gardens.

This little guy looks as confused by the rules of croquet as I am. Also, I think he could have done with a slightly smaller mallet but then that wouldn’t have looked half as good for the photos!

The Best Man just happened to be the Groom’s Father and his speech included an amusing banana based story which everyone found suitably hillarious.

The couple shots…

Is the squirrel relevant? No… the squirrel’s not relevant.

Off to the National Railway Museum for the reception – another venue where we’ve found that the staff will go out of their way for you.

As a little surprise for the couple we decided to deck out the PhotoBooth with a British theme. They seemed to enjoy it!


Well, that last photo says it all. We had a brilliant day with Gemma and Jamie and know that they’re going to live happily ever after. Ahhhhhhhhh.
