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!)


Rogerthorpe Manor Wedding Fayre – 6th March 2011

As mentioned in my last post we’re in the middle of the busy wedding fayre season and the first weekend of March saw us eagerly promoting our services at the Rogerthorpe Manor Hotel – a lovely country house situated in Badsworth, West Yorkshire.

The fayre itself was larger than some we had attended in the past – evidenced by the fact that we were one of 7(!) photography companies on show that day. Thankfully, the volume of guests visiting on the day ensured we all had a fair chance of generating leads from enquiries.

As usual I had my camera along for a few snaps, so below are some shots from the day.

The venue entrance was framed by these classic motors, supplied by the good folk at Cartwright’s Courtesy Cars.

Our display stand – ready to wow the punters!

There were too many suppliers on show for me to snap them all, but a few displays in particular stood out. These gorgeous dresses were bespoke offerings from Amazing Brides.

At our recent York Wedding Fayre (blog post here) we were placed next to the brilliantly named Funky Muppet – a balloon and accessories supplier based in Leeds. By pure chance our table was once again next to theirs, so it was great to catch up and discuss our experiences of other fayres we had each attended since York. If you’re looking for some great balloons for your big day you should check these guys out – that bad boy on the right is designed to be popped to release all the smaller balloons!

I can honestly say; this was the first Taz themed wedding cake I’d ever seen! This creation was the work of Marija’s Cakes and the level of detail was astonishing – right down to the ‘stitching’ on the suitcases!


So far the wedding fayre circuit has been a great experience and I’m always encouraged by how friendly and approachable fellow suppliers are in such a ‘sales’ environment. Rogerthorpe Manor hosted a great day – here’s hoping the next fayre will be just as enjoyable!
