Stuart is an absolute gem photographer. We got our family photos captured with Lovelight photography, Stuart is very friendly and made the day very enjoyable.

After a week of the photography session we went in for our viewing appointment. A handpicked selection of photos were displayed on a large screen. We are very pleased with our overall experience and purchase of photographs.  Lovelight are highly recommended.”

– Arsalan Saeed & family



Superb friendly and professional service from start to finish.

The whole experience was very relaxed but professional. The viewing of photos was a very pleasurable experience. We had so many amazing photos to choose from. Superb.

We had a wonderful family photo shoot here with Olivia.  My husband isn’t often keen on photos, but he really enjoyed the photo shoot. Olivia made it so much fun, that the photoshoot time itself was such a fun family time out together, she made it so special.

My two boys were aged 3 yrs old and 8 months old, and she was a natural with them.  The photos created were better than I could have ever imagined, so I happily and willingly, without any pressure, chose to buy more than I’d planned to. Even the photo-viewing session was such a wonderful time.

I could have spent all day in their studio, enjoying watching our photos on their huge screen. We were made to feel like we had all the time in the world to sit back and enjoy watching them. The staff were so friendly, the whole photo studio experience made me feel so special, that it lifted my spirits for so long, and the joy it brought had such a lasting impact. The final photo creations were amazingly high-quality, and I’m so proud of them, they are a treasured part of our house and family life. Thank you so much.

I definitely had to give this company a 5* rating! The staff are super friendly, the studio is lovely and the photos are 10/10.

I have been here twice for my bump to baby photoshoots and there’s a reason I came back the 2nd time as it was so comfortable and fun and I had all the confidence that they’d give me great photos like the 1st time.

You instantly feel relaxed when you go upstairs for your photos, there’s no rush and you have a nice chat through the session.

When we did our viewing session I didn’t feel an obligation to purchase the photos but I chose to as they looked so good. They really captured the vision I had in my head and the photos take pride of place in my living room. I will definitely be returning to the studio in the near future! “

I can’t recommend lovelight photography enough for their work and patience.  We had a really lovely experience with Ellie for a newborn and pet photoshoot. She was extremely patient and let us stay on for extra time while the baby fed etc. she was excellent with them both. It wasn’t easy with a dog and baby but the team done everything they could to keep them occupied and managed to capture the perfect family photos that we used for gifts and to fill our home.  Such a special moment in our life we will have forever.” 

– Daniella Hales



Was actually shocked when we saw the photos, they were amazing and it certainly seemed to me my youngest tried his hardest to sabotage the photo shoot. (Never work with animals and children   😂) we are the most un photogenic family yet here we are with fantastic family photos and memories. Thank you lovelight. “
