Lyndsey Goddard Photography
I am so naughty as the parcel just arrived and rather than be the good wife and wait for Ol, I ripped open the box, shoved the kids in front of the TV and just spent the most delicious half an hour reliving it all through your clever eyes. I am absolutely thrilled with them, it was such an intimate day and you were so discreet and considerate, it's just blown me away to see it all again. You captured the spirit of the day so effortlessly and with such subtle artistry, you really are a talented story teller. Thank you thank you thank you. On a personal note you were so easy to have around, like we'd known each other for years, and that's so important. Our wedding had been such a long time coming and we've had two kids in two years so it was incredibly emotional having such a focus on us and the way we feel about each other, and to have it all documented so beautifully is something that we will treasure forever. We had the most amazing time in Thailand and are suffering the post wedding, post honeymoon come down, so needless to say the photos are a good way of clinging on to the buzz for that little bit longer!

Dear Lyndsey Thank you SO much, they are gorgeous photos. I haven't been able to stop looking at them - it just brings the whole day back to life . We cannot thank you enough for your work, to be able to capture things the way you do is a true gift . Planning the wedding from New Zealand was not without it’s challenges, but you made the whole process super easy and a joy, and although you were working we hope you had a good time at the wedding. We could do nothing but whole heartedly recommend you to others and we will definitely be doing so! Thanks again. Ian and Debbie
Lyndsey... THANK YOU SO MUCH. I've just sneakily watched this at work. Absolutely fallen in love with the photos you have taken. You could not have captured the day any more beautifully and perfectly! The photos are just amazing and I can't wait to watch that slide show all over again and show it off to everyone. I honestly can not thank you enough. I will be writing a review to detail just how amazing you were on the day and how incredibly special our photos are. Stu and I have looked through them and laughed, cried and said ‘’Awww’’ as we went through. Having a curry tonight with our family, to sit and go through them together. So glad we chose you to be our photographer. Your service has been beyond amazing and we are totally in love with the photos. We will recommend you to everyone we know! Thank you Lyndsey
” wow wow wow”…. That’s all that could be heard in 3 Dewar Street last night, after we arrived home to find your photos had arrived! Absolutely fantastic – we love them! You’ve managed to capture both the majesty and the quirkiness of the venue, and the mood of the day perfectly. Love the pics in the pub, love the pics of our (slightly terrifying!) journey, and the speeches, and the shots with the magician are just brilliant. I think you managed to snap every person there – all those smiling faces and all those special little moments that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. We’re really pleased that we have these wonderful photos to remind us of what a beautiful, fun day it was. Thank you so much!
Hi Lyndsey We just wanted to drop you a note to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We couldn't have wished for a more involved, ninja-like photographer at our wedding. Our guests commented on how invoked and up-for-it you were and, not only did you capture all the really exciting, important bits, you made us feel like total rock stars. The photos are amazing! You've somehow managed to be everywhere at once and capture everything. You've really got the best out of people who hate having to stand for organised photos. I’m really pleased that we chose you to be our photographer. You went above and beyond the call of duty and it was such a pleasure sharing the day with you, and we are thrilled you were a part of it. Thank you, thank you, thank you- you are truly excellent and awesome.
Hi Lyndsey, Just wanted to send you a very quick message having looked through the pictures for the first time. We are absolutely delighted with them! They are perfect and way beyond anything we could have hoped for. I appreciate that it takes a great deal of work to get them looking so good so thank you so much for the care and attention. Also thank you for how great you were on the day. You made everything extremely easy for us and it was a real pleasure to have you there. Thanks again.
Oh my god. That is incredible..... You just made us both cry! So many bits of the day just in that slide show that we hadn't been able to see for ourselves and just what a magical day it was.... There was never a doubt in my mind that I wanted you as our photographer and this just proves why. How you capture pure emotion is absolute gold. Thank you so much! We love them so much! You've actually killed Rory. Ha ha! xxx
Hi Lyndsey Your memory stick has arrived - even the packaging is beautifully stylish! I don't know what to say - unusual for me! We are all completely overwhelmed by them. You captured moments that were so precious and, the whole day has come alive again. We've had tears of joy and, much, much laughter! You have captured the essence of the whole wedding day in a way that is beyond anything we could have hoped for. I knew it was a great day but, to see so many people so obviously enjoying themselves is gratifying indeed! Even better, I actually like myself on them!! You were so right, I needn't have worried. Thank you! Georgie will no doubt be in touch again very very soon but, we're off on holiday tomorrow and I couldn't go without saying a huge thank you for all that you did, your easy manner and, the beautiful fruits of your labour!

I live on the Kent coast, about 200m from the beach with my husband Steve, another photographer, and our French Bulldog, Ozzy. Originally from the beautiful Cathedral city of Lincoln, I spent almost 20 years living in London before winding up here. It’s a beautiful and inspiring place to live.
I studied Fine Art but have always been drawn to photography, and since early 2009, wedding photography has been my full time job. I gained qualifications from the London College of Printing (now LCC), part of the prestigious University of the Arts London, and my skills through diverse assignments and projects, ranging from pregnancy portraits and births, travel photojournalism in Cuba, album covers, and being on the team which covered the 2005 Cannes Film Festival for French newspaper Le Monde.
You’ll see from looking around my site that my approach to wedding photography is very natural and “hands off”. Whether you want to call it documentary, reportage or even wedding photojournalism, it all amounts to the same thing; I won’t stop any of the proceedings, set shots up, ask you to repeat anything or ask anyone to pose for the camera. In short, you’ll barely know I’m there, which means you can enjoy the day fully.
It’s important to me that you have the most comprehensive narrative to your wedding photographs, and that the story of the day is told through my pictures. I believe that whilst an image should be an honest and unscripted portrayal of a moment, it should also be thoughtfully composed and visually beautiful. My aim is to provide you with a set of beautiful images which will sit happily alongside your memories of the day, taking you back to it every time you look at them. Your job on the day is to have the best time of your lives with the people that mean the most to you. My job is to capture it all as discreetly and genuinely as possible.
In 2016 I shot my 250th wedding, so you can be assured that I have the experience to handle anything your wedding day throws at me! I’m proud to have won numerous awards from the world renowned Wedding Photojournalist Association and in 2017 won ”Wedding Photographer of the Year” in the national finals of The Wedding Industry Awards. The TWIA recognises and awards excellence in the wedding industry and is the only UK competition where you are judged not only on your photographs, but by what your previous wedding couples have to say about you.

“But what will it cost?” you ask. My pricing structure is simple in that you can pick the amount of hours you need to cover your day. A few weeks after the event you’ll receive a link to a slideshow which will tell the story of your wedding. Following that, you’ll receive a little package containing a USB memory stick of high resolution, print ready images of your wedding. These will be individually processed in a mixture of black and white and colour, and you’ll also receive the same files specially optimised for sharing on Facebook etc., and an online password protected gallery for friends and family to view your images.
I can also provide you with gorgeous, bespoke albums and coffee table books, printed and bound here in the UK. There’s no hard sell on these and they are not tied into packages, so you’re free to order one at any stage after the wedding, for yourselves or as a gift.
