Kathryn Goddard Photography

Your Wedding Photographer In Gloucestershire, The Cotswolds And The South West

let's chat

Welcome to my wonderful world of wedding photography.

If you’re planning your wedding, congratulations! I’m absolutely delighted for you both. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer in Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds or the South West, I’d love to help you.

I’ve photographed weddings in so many charming locations in and around Cheltenham, Gloucester, the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds. Whether large or small, each is perfect in its own unique way. (Just like you!)

I love creating colourful, natural images of your special day that you can have and hold forever. The love, the laughter, the joy …

I capture the moments that just happen!

If you’re anything like my other lovely clients, you might feel shy about being in front of a camera or being the centre of attention. (Me too!)

You probably don’t want your wedding photography to be a ‘big thing’ or to take up too much of your precious day. You don’t want your guests to be lining up in height order when they should be drinking fizz and sharing funny stories with you.
I completely agree! 

I’m brilliant at blending in and capturing those beautiful, natural moments that just happen. (But don’t worry – we’ll still get all those special shots you’ve been dreaming of too.)

I become more like a friend or an extra wedding guest …

Because by the time your big day comes around, we’ll have chatted online and in person. We may even have had a relaxed pre-wedding photoshoot and treated ourselves to some delicious tea and cake.

We’ll have gossiped about honeymoons and wedding buffets and the latest series of Strictly!

So when it’s time for me to join you on your wonderful day with my camera we’ll just enjoy ourselves – and your gorgeous, happy smiles will come naturally.

My clients also say I’m the perfect wedding day helper!

You might find me sorting out buttonholes or taking tags off suits. 

I’ve also been a last-minute taxi for bridesmaids, luggage and flowers.

And I’m always armed with umbrellas in case it rains!

(I’ve been doing this wedding photography thing for decades. Don’t worry – I’ve got you covered!)

But best of all …

I always bring a sense of fun and plenty of smiles if you need them. I remind you to breathe and enjoy your wedding day – and each other! (Some couples even find that our quiet time together for a few photos is one of the most memorable parts of their day.)

If all of that sounds good to you, let me tell you about my wedding packages.

I like to think there’s something here for everyone. So cosy up and let’s explore …

Not only am I in love with our photos, every single one of our guests commented on how great and funny Kathryn was, and how she fitted into our day and made everyone feel so comfortable around her.”

“The sneak peek of our photos and I was blown away. Kathryn captured the happiness of our day … and we never felt pressured or interrupted.”

frequently asked questions

Yes! Personally, I like to meet you before you book with me. Tea, coffee or gin will feature, as will cake! (Just to make sure we’re a great fit.) After all, I’m joining you and your family and friends to capture one of the most important days of your lives. 

You need to feel comfortable and know you can trust me to do my job. After booking, I like to keep in touch with you, so feel free to drop me an email, a text or call if you have any questions.

 We’ll meet again around 2-3 weeks before your big day to go through timings, any must have shots and the final details of your day.

Yes, I store your images for up to 2 years after delivery. And don't worry – I’ll message you before I delete your files so you can check your storage and backup.

Yes, Kathryn Goddard Photography is fully insured by Infocus Insurance. I also have employers’ liability to cover any second photographers or students who may be working with me.

Yes, we’ll chat about this at the time of booking. I use other professional photographers to second shoot with me, although I will edit the final images to ensure consistency. 

Occasionally I have photography students on work experience. I will always let you know if they’re joining me for your wedding (at no extra cost to you!) You will of course have access to any of the images they have taken.

I know how expensive those meals can be – so I’m happy to provide my own! (Although I always appreciate lovely food if it’s offered.) 
I take a break whilst you eat your wedding breakfast in peace, and will be back with you, ready for the speeches.


I know you’ll be keen to see them, so I’ll send you your highlights gallery within 3 working days. (Usually within 48 hours if I'm not shooting a wedding the day after.) 

To make sure the final images are looking their absolute best, the average editing time is between 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the time of year.

I’m usually in excellent health! But if the worst ever happens and I absolutely can’t make your day, I’m part of a great network of photographers who jump in to help each other out if the need arises.

I shoot with two cameras throughout the day. Both cameras have two memory card slots, so I always leave your wedding with a backup. 

I also have two additional camera bodies and a selection of lenses in my car, just in case. My first job when I get back home (after saying hello to the dog, my husband and grabbing a drink!) is to back up your images to another external hard drive, which is copied to a cloud-based storage system.

That’s a whole lot of backup!

The final number of images is very much dependent on how much is going on, travel time and the size of your wedding. It’s usually between 500-700 digital images for a full day.

Yes, I will always do these too. I understand that this may be one of the only times that all family members get together, and it’s an important record of your wedding day.
I do also encourage guests to grab me at any time for smaller group shots throughout the day.

I believe you should be the first people to see your wedding images, so I send you a highlights slideshow direct to your inbox. I never post sneak peeks online. 

If you’re happy with me sharing images online after you’ve seen them, just let me know. 

As a photographer it’s important for me to showcase my work – but I understand that not everyone wants their lives popping up on social media! I’ll ask you if you’re happy for me to share any images online, when you’re ready.

That’s great news! As soon as you’re happy to go ahead, you can secure my services for the day with a non-refundable booking fee of 25% of the full package price. (Press the ‘We’re Ready’ button below to get in touch, and we’ll arrange it.)

The balance will be due no later than 14 days before your wedding day. I’ll email you the payment details and a contract for you to sign. Once both of these are back with me, your date is officially booked!


We're ready!

Wedding Day

"We’re so glad we decided to hire Capture this Moment Photography for our wedding day! Kathryn is such a lovely woman, and was so accommodating for our situation - we had to postpone our wedding and change location, day and time, due to COVID-19. My husband and I are both awful in situations when the focus is on us so having a wedding day and a photographer was difficult for us, but having Kathryn as our photographer for the day made everything so much easier! We were at ease for the whole day and we’re happy to have our photos taken because Kathryn made it such a comfortable situation! Kathryn you’re such a star! Thank you so much for everything you have done for us - the photos are gorgeous!".

"We really can not recommend Kathryn enough, she did an unbelievable job of our wedding photos and we couldn't of asked for anything more.
Kathryn remained calm and relaxed throughout the day and yet still managed to keep our unruly guests under control during the group photos. the amount of wonderful comments we had from our guest about how amazing Kathryn was really made it clear that we had made a fantastic choice in our wedding photographer.
I know I've said it many times before Kathryn but you really are a very talented lady and your wonderful personality shines through to all of your work. Thank you so so much for providing us with a life time of beautiful memories."

"Kathryn is a lovely girl who manages to put you completely at ease and therefore gets lovely natural photos! She drove to Cornwall and back the same day to stand in for our original photographer that had to cancel last minute due to unforeseen personal problems.

Wedding Day

"Kathryn is such a wonderful and talented photographer, she did the most fantastic job of shooting our wedding and gave us the most precious pictures of memories that we can cherish forever. She created the perfect balance between getting all the essential pictures on the day and capturing natural pictures allowing us to relax and spend more time with our guests. Not only did she also give us a pre-wedding photo shoot so that we could get to know each other. She made us and our guests feel relaxed and I would very highly recommend her to anybody looking for a photographer for any occasion."

Wedding Day

"I have hired Kathryn on multiple occasions, from portraits, through to our wedding photographer last year. From personal experience I know Kathryn is a natural at helping even the most self-conscious subjects relax and she gets the very best results for you. Kathryn handled our wedding crowd with ease and captured many, many amazing memories from the day. She was happy to work with our ideas for certain shots as well as bring many creative ideas of her own. I've also had the pleasure of working with Kathryn at dance events and she has an amazing eye for capturing those special details. So if you are looking for a photographer with a personal touch I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Kathryn. You'll be happy you did!"
