For the party animals.

Good people & good vibes.

I pride myself on keeping things natural and low-key—choosing moments over poses, letting you both take in every moment of your wedding while I snap away in the background. 

None of this standing in a line and posing all day nonsense.

If your idea of a relaxing holiday is a road trip across Scandinavia and waking up at 4am to capture epic sunrise photos sounds like a great idea—chances are that we’ll get along nicely.

Raw emotions, candid moments, epic backdrops and a banging dance floor is my jam. You won’t see me warming the car up to do a runner after the first dance!

UK Weddings

Whether it’s massive house in the Cotswolds, a wooden concert hall in Suffolk, a knees up in London or a stately home in Cornwall—I photograph some of the most awesome weddings for cool and adventurous couples across the South Coast of England and the rest of the UK.


Why not take a breather from the spreadsheets and frantic Googling to take some awesome photos together? It could be as simple as playing in the Dorset rain or as dramatic as an adventure across Seven Sisters cliffs. There’s no hill too tall or cliff too pointy. 


Do I photograph worldwide? You’re damn right I photograph worldwide—with weddings in Vietnam, Malta, Costa Rica, France and Ireland in just the last couple of years alone. Pricing is all much the same, just with travel costs popped on top! Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

I blow my own trumpet.

Where do I even start with a review of Stuart as a professional, and the quality of his work? Throughout our very long Covid-affected marriage journey, Stuart was absolutely phenomenal, and one of our stand-out suppliers in terms of his cooperation, support, consideration and amenability. Nothing was too much for him, and every new obstacle, Stuart offered a solution, always making us feel reassured.

When we finally reached the wedding, Stuart’s approach on the day was absolutely perfect. He was everywhere, snapping everything, without being invasive or commanding, and still allowing us ‘our moments’. When he needed to direct proceedings, he did, and when he was snapping the candid moments of the day, he was very subtle.

Finally, the results…the pictures are absolutely phenomenal. We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful depiction of the day. We are so happy with all of the photographs. Thank you.

My now husband found Stuart online and was immediately drawn to his unique arty style, and all important beautiful black and white photos! On the day he was so engaging, easy to talk to and made us feel so at ease! He made sure he was present during all the parts of the wedding and captured so many awesome parts of our special day.

We have just received the photos back and are so so impressed with how many there are, how absolutely gorgeous they all are and just how they captured our feel for the day. They made me cry! We are so ecstatic with the fact that these photos will be with us for ever and always remind us of that amazing day. Thank you so much Stuart, you are so talented.

We knew Stuart was insanely talented from looking at his portfolio before we booked him but wow we were completely overwhelmed when we saw our wedding photographs! My husband and I are a bit awkward and uncomfortable being in the spotlight but you wouldn’t know it from the photographs, we look so natural. Stuart made us feel at ease and captured the best of us, he even made us look a bit cool!

He was able to capture our wedding in the most natural and beautiful way, even the most raw and subtle moments (and moments when we didn’t even realise he was there!). The way he works with natural light is really soft and beautiful. We’ve had so many comments about how beautiful the photographs are.

We also just wanted to add that we opted for a second photographer which was definitely worth it, Jade was amazing and so lovely, and it’s great looking at the same moments from different angles.

Stuart is not just an amazing photographer who knows his stuff, but he is also a friendly down to earth person! His unique way of capturing the moment is what drew us to him. He was very engaging from the moment of booking right the way through. His pictures captured exactly what we were after, from the passionate moments of just us, to everyone having an amazing time.

We can’t thank you enough for capturing our special day in your unique way!

Rachel & Jake

Wow! What can we say!

We have just received our photos back and they have captured our amazing day perfectly. We wanted to find a photographer who could not only capture us on our day, but everything else- the guests, the scenery etc, and Stuart went above and beyond! His cinematic yet relaxed style truly portrayed little moments we might of missed. Honestly, I never realised our wedding photos could of been so beautiful.

Even though I may not be used to having photos taken, Stuart makes it so relaxed and natural, there is no need for posing he simply will just photograph you as your true self! So many people have commented on how stunning the photos are. The best choice we could have made!

Rhys & Lottie

We had the privilege of having Stuart as our photographer for our Indian wedding. I found Stuart on Instagram and instantly fell in love with his artistic and cinematic approach to photography. From the initial phone call, Stuart was so laid back that it did not once feel like talking to a stranger!

He wasn’t pushy at all and did not try to sell himself – his work did the talking. This is one of the main reasons why Stuart was our favourite wedding supplier. He was prompt on the day, relaxed and respectful of our guests and religious ceremonies. He was always on hand to capture every moment, even when things got pretty hectic!

We were also so surprised how he managed to turn around our photos in a matter of weeks! I can’t recommend Stuart enough, his work is fantastic and his personality is just an added bonus. Thank you so much.
