About Me


I am a qualified award-winning photographer with over thirty years of professional experience and during that time I have covered over 300 weddings. My style is fresh and informal, telling the story of your day in an editorial reportage style. I photograph all the special elements that convey the mood as well as tell the story of your day, working in a way that is unobtrusive, to enable you both to relax and enjoy your day knowing it will be well documented with beautiful images.

I photograph weddings because I love them. It is always an immense privilege to be booked to photograph a couple’s most important day and I treat it as such. I love the excitement of the day, sheer variety and capturing the emotion and essence. Every wedding I’ve photographed has been so different and enjoyable. I work in a very unobtrusive manner, with a relaxed and friendly approach. Couples, parents and their guests love my style and manner and comment how refreshing it is to find a photographer that blends into the day, yet captures it so beautifully. I like to document weddings naturally with little intervention. My style and approach to weddings allows everyone to be themselves and enjoy the day, whilst together we create amazing works of art.


Over the past 30+ years of working professionally, I photographed everything from Royalty, Film Stars to Findus Food & Greggs!

After graduating in Photography in Gloucester, I initially earned my stripes assisting London Fashion Photographers before joining Associated Newspapers and worked my way around the titles including, The Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday & Evening Standard.

We left London in 2003 and moved to Stroud, Gloucestershire to set up Jeremy Clifton-Gould Photography and concentrate on photographing weddings. We covered weddings all over the country & abroad, shooting 30-35 weddings per year and in 2014, I decided I needed to take a sabbatical and teach undergraduates in Photography & Filmmaking at the local university.

Roll on 2021 & I am relaunching my Wedding Photography business, JCG Photography and I am really looking forward to travelling across the country to cover weddings and meet new couples and their families.


I am now based in the town of Cheltenham, close to the Cotswold’s as well as the M4 & M5 motorways which offer efficient links to further afield and so I am happy to offer coverage for the UK & Overseas destinations as required.

On my pricing page, I have listed my current packages in full, all can be tailored to fit your own specific requirements.

Weather is always perceived as an issue – however I am more than used to dealing with the vagaries of the UK climate and carry a complete studio lighting set up just in case we really need to carry on shooting indoors, I also include a venue visit into my packages so we can locate suitable areas if such an event occurs.

Testimonials

“Jeremy photographed my wedding and my husband and I are so pleased we chose Jeremy. His style, his confidence and his knowledge are exactly what we were looking for. He owned the scene directing us all. Took a lot of time out of his own schedule to drive to the venue and do a complete walk through our day. We knew our exact steps on our big day. He was polite and not over bearing. If you’re on this page look no further, you’ve found someone who listens and delivers!”

“It is a profound honour as a photographer to witness two people falling in love”
