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...

Carolyne & Matthew’s Engagement Shoot

For today’s Engagement Shoot we have the delightful Carolyne and Matthew. The venue of choice is Oakwell Hall – a place we know well – although the couple actually tie the knot at Woodlands Hotel near Leeds. These guys were such fun to work with and Carolyne managed to brave the occasional wasp for the greater good!

Here’s a handful of keepers!

Charlotte & Scott’s Bolton Abbey Wedding

Here we are again with another lovely wedding for you guys – this time around it’s the turn of Charlotte & Scott, who got hitched at the rather splendid Bolton Abbey before celebrating with their family and friends at The Devonshire Arms just down the road. The day was glorious and the sun graced us with it’s presence for most of the day, making for some wonderful photos.

Charlotte had the luxury of getting ready at their reception venue, whilst Scott and the boys enjoyed their morning at The Cow & Calf, Ilkley. He was joined by Kelly, who kept them all in check and made sure their morning ran on time. Take a moment and have a look through some of the highlights from the day…

Amanda & Alex’s Skipbridge Engagement Shoot

It’s time for another Engagement Shoot. Why not pretend to go for a cigarette break, take your phone with you and enjoy the following images of the lovely Amanda & Alex.

These guys had chosen our good friends over at Skipbridge Country Weddings to host their reception (they’re not yet licensed for ceremonies – Gordon’s working on it!), so we jumped at the chance of also shooting their Engagement session there. Here are a few of our favourites…

A fun few hours was had by all – pop back soon to see the wedding day highlights!

 
 

Lizzy & Ewan’s Hodsock Priory Wedding

Grab a coffee and comfy seat folks, this post is a big’un!

You may remember theses guys (and this venue) from our blog post of their Engagement Shoot, but now we’re here to share Lizzy and Ewan’s wonderful wedding. You’d be hard pushed to find a more happy, smiley couple than these two, so it was no surprise that we hit it off from the get go.

Ewan popped the big question during a visit to Ljubljana in Slovenia, whilst on a bridge covered with love-note inscribed padlocks. They decided upon Hodsock Priory as their reception venue, but chose to have the ceremony at Blyth St. Mary & St. Martin Church in nearby Blyth. Incidentally, you may recognise the vicar in the photos – apparently she’s on Channel 4’s Gogglebox! Although the couple chose a plethora of suppliers for their big day, they also wanted their family to get involved. To that end Lizzy’s mum made the bridesmaids dresses and Ewan’s mum made all the groomsmen’s cravats.

Anyway, it’s time to let the pictures speak, so here are the highlights of the day (P.S. – keep your eyes peeled for the peacock theme!)…

What a fantastic day with two of the nicest people you could hope to meet. For their honeymoon Lizzy & Ewan jetted off to exotic Malaysia and Indonesia, the first of what I’m sure will be many adventures as Mr & Mrs!

 
 

Laurette & Stuart’s York Engagement Shoot

We met Laurette and Stuart at a wedding fair over a year ago and realised we were a good fit straight away, so were thrilled when they booked us for their wedding at Raven Hall Hotel, near Scarborough. For their Engagement Shoot we all decided upon having a wander around York city centre one evening in May. The weather had other plans for us, however, and opted to start raining as soon as we met up with Laurette and Stuart – but we weren’t going to let that stop us!

Here’s a few favourites from the session…
