Hi, I'm Stuart 👋
I am an award winning photographer that has been a full time photographer for over 10 years, I have a huge passion for the outdoors and exploring new spots, I also do a lot of Astro-photography .
I've got an academic background and specialised in microscope optics. I decided to crawl out of the university basements and enjoy the outdoors, I do Astro-photography to keep my inner nerd happy. I really love shooting weddings I like the excitement and happiness of bringing everyone together and having a good time. I also like building things, the most interesting thing I have build is a 15ft Canadian canoe that is called the Jammy Dodger.

Stuart is THE photographer to hire.
Honestly, Stuart is THE photographer to hire. You cannot ask for a more dedicated, passionate person to entrust with the responsibility of capturing your special day. We had the absolute pleasure of having him join us for our wedding day. He has a natural way of putting you at ease when taking your photographs that conveys in the images he captures. In an instant, he seems to have a gift for being everywhere at once, capturing your best moments from all angles, but without becoming a distraction. We literally have a series of photos where he has somehow circled us completely several times and from many distances. You would believe there were several photographers. He stays focused an dedicated, capturing every moment of your day, from the makeup and hair in the morning, to the wedding vows and kiss, to the funny moments on the dance floor. His creative flair for capturing unique and magical shots transformed itself into a large collection of beautiful memories, to which he touched up with a delicate and subtle grace. We absolutely recommend hiring Stuart. It’ll be one of the best choices you will make. Thank you again, Stuart! Much appreciation,

Bound by Light Captured the Personality of our We
Stuart is a wonderful photographer and all round top guy! He really made our engagement and wedding photos personal and “us”. It’s amazing how he can capture individual personalities in his art and get those natural moments at our best. We’ll treasure those photos always…and look back fondly on all the laughs and good times we had along the way! Thank you Stuart :)

Stuart exceeded those expectations and then some!
My wife and I carefully researched wedding photographers and decided to hire Stuart (Bound by Light) for our engagement and wedding photos. My wife's father is a professional photographer, and so our expectations were high. Stuart exceeded those expectations and then some! From the beginning, Stuart made us feel comfortable and at ease, developing the easy rapport required for natural looking pictures. For our engagement photos, he knew the right spots to go to and the right times to be there, resulting in great light and stunning backdrops. In addition to wedding photography, Stuart has a passion for astral photography (starry skies, etc) and the cherry on the cake for our engagement photos was a beautiful picture of the two of us on an old bridge lit by the stars of the milky way. A magical shot that few other wedding photographers could have captured! At the wedding, Stuart worked tirelessly to capture every element from casual preparations (including a walk in the venue's grounds), to the bride in her dress, to another unique picture of the two of us silhouetted against a fiery sunset. He even waded out into a thigh-deep river to get the perfect shot. The quality of all the photos was exceptional, and we got more than anyone has any right to expect. Needless to say, we were delighted. Bound By Light deserves to be a well-known name in wedding photography. I cannot recommend Stuart highly enough. Thank you so much, Stuart!

Could not have wished for a better photographer.
Was nervous about having our pictures taken at our wedding as we aren't used to having our pictures taken but Stuart was absolutely amazing. He made us both feel as ease instantly and wasn't too focused on poses, and didn't take us away from our day for too long for photoshoots. Our pictures look very natural and capture the true essence of the day. He was also very approachable and you could ask him for certain photos you would like and he would

What is your most memorable wedding?

um... I get in trouble if I don't say my own wedding don't I? Besides I couldn't pick a favourite couple could I? I married my Chinese wife when I was 23. it will be our 16th wedding anniversary this year and we have two kids.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Fun, Relaxed, Dramatic, Adventurous and lets pretend that "Outdoors" is an adjective.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Being built doing what I love doing and attracting like minded couples

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

GET MARRIED EARLY! Everyone is tense and nervous before the ceremony and you are away from the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. get the ceremony done and then the rest of the wedding is fun and you have loads of time to do what ever you want. also

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Honestly a wedding is about the people. the personal touches come round having a really good time with the people you love.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

During the wedding planning I shout "GET MARRIED EARLY!" a lot. assuming its a full day with

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

It really depends on yourselves and what is most important to you. I am going to say the most important photo is the photo where you are happiest.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

If you look at Bound By Starlight you will see that I am very creative, so it is normally me coming up with daft ideas and hoping my couples like them!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Innoring the rain and having fun. generally its rare that it rains all day. So if you got married early it is a case of just enjoying the company of your guests and then when the rain breaks you will see me approach looking like a Labrador dog that is over excited and really needs a wee.

Describe how you got into photography.

I've always carried a camera while I was growing up. I've always been a digital person. I've always felt it gave me creative control, my first camera was an Olympus with 1.3 mega pixels. (I'm now shooting with a pair of Nikon Z9 cameras) when I was doing a PhD in Optics I fell in with a wedding photographer. I just did it for fun and company never found the weddings stressful. after the PhD I found that microscopes don't like vibration or light and are always found in windowless basements. So one day I just found the yearning to be outside with happy people to strong and I left the basement and became a full time photographer.
