Im looking for for a light Metre but I'm a bit clueless to which are good brand and which are not. I need something that i can use on location e.g a wedding shoot and preferably one thats not going to break the bank of a student.

Plastic in preference to wood, they are much lighter or you could op for a 1 yard one, being aprox 3cms shorter that will be lighter still.
Hi, sorry I could not resist. Try here:

Is 299,792,458 metres per second good enough
Alternatively the Sekonic L308s might be what you need.
Try a Weston Master V on ebay. A great meter at a great price !!!
Sekonic L-308S or a shepard Polaris, both fairly cheap, its all you need really.
They both also cover flash.
Sekonic, Minolta are excellent meters, Polaris represents good value also Gossen. Make sure you get one that does both ambient and flash. Don't worry too much about age, i'm still using a Minolta 3 meter it works a treat even though its getting quite old. Look for good condition on ebay.
Sekonics and Polaris are only different in name really, there both great little meters.
Have to second the proposal for a Sekonic L-308s, used one for a few years now, really good and around £140, use as a studio flash meter mainly.
I think you can get a light sabre from s Star Wars shop
I am curious as to why one would need a light metre with today's cameras.
Camera`s meter differently Denny, and light meters (most) can also measure flash exposer.
