"When I first met Steve he said he strives to ” tell the story of your Day ” ….if I’m totally honest I didn’t fully “get it” but I instantly liked his enthusiasm. Then we saw our wedding photos and NOW I totally 100% “get it ” ….Steve told our story! And what I think is a testament to his talent is if you look through his wedding story each is unique and individual …Not a one size fits all ….Steve is a skilled tailor of a photographer. Steve, we are so glad we found YOU." - Sarah and Viv

I will document the full story from morning to night and capture all the connections, moments, love and laughter that you will forget as your day goes by in the blink of an eye.

When booking your photographer consider these points:

STYLE - Book a photographer whose editing style is consistent and whose aesthetics align with what you love

CONNECTION - Meet the photographer to find out if you connect. Someone who will make you feel comfortable in front of the camera

TRUST - Book a photographer who you feel you can trust and who listens to you. Check out their reviews, and their website. You only have one chance to get it right.

If you love my style of photography, then please get in touch and we can have a chat about your exciting plans for your wedding day.

Nathan and Bethan

For two people who don’t enjoy being centre of attention and being in front of a camera, Steve made us feel very comfortable in his presence and captured the most beautiful photo’s of our very intimate wedding day. From start to finish, there was nothing but ease and the run up to the wedding we had excellent communication with how the day will run. We have had an abundance of beautiful photos where we can view anytime on an online gallery and have many options to purchase these photos. All photo’s taken were natural (the style I love), and caught special moments throughout the day with family and friends and even our boxer dog Winston. Highly recommended!

Steve was absolutely brilliant. Lessing up to the wedding he provided useful helps and tips and always answered any queries. On the day he was vibrant and supportive and came up with great ideas when the weather turned on us. We are so pleased with the outcome of our photos. Definitely recommend Art Bu Design.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would

Steve was the most amazing photographer for our day. We had quite a small wedding and Steve easily integrated with the guests, he had a great energy about him that left all of our guests saying what an amazing photographer he was. We got our previews through just a couple of days later and they are the most stunning photographs, I know we'll be looking back on them for years to come. Steve captured all the happiness and joy that was our wedding day. He was easily the best supplier on our day and I would highly reccomend him.
