Peter Boyd Photography 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 Engagement Shoot at Lendal Tower, York

Here we have the first of two Engagement Shoots from Monday this week – Cat & Matt. This shoot was a slight change from the norm, as we weren’t shooting at the couples wedding venue (which is York Pavilion Hotel). Instead we were exploring the rather splendid Lendal Tower, which had been booked by Cat for her hen do a couple of days before.

What a great place for photos! We started off on the spacious roof terrace, before heading back through a few rooms and then finally out into the garden (I know, a garden in the centre of York!)

Anyway, below is just a handful of our favourites for your enjoyment…

Hannah & Danny’s Wedding at The Old Swan Hotel

For our first wedding this year we ventured up to North Yorkshire to capture the special day of Hannah & Danny. The day began in Pateley Bridge at the lovely Beauty Boutique for Hannah’s make-up, before heading back to her parents house for hair and dress donning. Meanwhile Kelly met up with Danny and best man Craig (who were already up and about at 9am!) to monitor – I mean ‘capture’ – their activities.

The actual wedding ceremony took place at Summerbridge Methodist Church and was conducted by the same vicar who had married Hannah’s parents – he’d come out of retirement especially for the day! Once the nuptials were complete (and we’d soldiered through some VERY windy group shots outside) it was off to The Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate for the reception.

Here are a few favourites from the day…

Hannah & Danny’s Engagement Shoot at The Old Swan Hotel

Last week we headed up to Harrogate to meet Hannah & Danny for their Engagement Shoot at The Old Swan Hotel, where they get married next month. It was bitterly cold – which made trying to look relaxed and happy a mammoth task – but these two soldiered on like a pair of posing superstars!

Here are a few favourites from the day…

Iona & Simon’s Wedding at The Priest’s House

Happy New Year everyone!

Our first blog post of 2014 is actually the last wedding we shot in 2013 – a lovely, intimate affair (with only 17 guests!) which took place on the last weekend of the year. Iona & Simon shared their vows at a picturesque spot called The Priest’s House, a cosy little venue nestled into the Yorkshire hills in the shadow of the ruins of Barden Tower. First things first though, the couple were both getting ready at The Abbey Lodge Hotel in Shipley before Simon ushered their guests onto a vintage coach for the trip to Priest’s House, while Iona followed behind in Rolls Royce style.

Here are a few favourites from the day…

Becky & Ryan’s Wedding at The Priory Cottages

Exactly two weeks ago today Kelly and I were making our way to The Priory Cottages, near Wetherby, to begin photographing the wedding of fellow industry supplier Becky (The Little Bridal Company) and her fiance Ryan. It’s always a compliment to be chosen to capture someone’s wedding day, but it’s an even higher compliment to be chosen by someone actually in the industry. Someone who has met many photographers during their business life and chosen you above the rest. The only compliment to beat that is to be chosen by another photographer, but that’s a whole different kettle of fish.

As always we arrived in time to capture the morning preparations. You know the story; the hair, the make-up, the dog’s outfit – all the usual stuff ;). After dropping me off with Becky, Kelly headed off to meet Ryan and the guys for their prep shots – which was a 2 hour round trip and she had trouble finding third gear in my car. I’m guessing that was a fun journey. With preparations done Kelly returned, punched me in the arm and we set about capturing the rest of the day.

Here are a few favourites…

Given what she does for a living it should come as no surprise that Becky had designed and made both her own dress and her bridesmaids dresses. The results were amazing.
