Steve Wheller - Wales & UK Wedding Photographer

Always behind the camera, never in front

I’m a creative wedding photographer based in South Wales. I adore Boho, DIY and funky wedfest style weddings and couples that want to get married in beautiful and unusual locations, Urban venues, Tipis, Marquees and Welsh Castles, no wedding is the same and that’s the way I like it. Stunning venues, creative couples and happy party people.

I photograph weddings all across Wales and the UK including weddings in Cardiff, Swansea, The Gower, Pembrokeshire, Brecon and all over Wales. Also England including Bristol, Bath, Cotswolds, Devon and Cornwall. So as you have guessed I will travel anywhere including abroad if your fancy fitting me in your suitcase.

I have been photographing weddings for over 20 years and had the honour of winning ‘Photographer of the year’ at the WWA 2018′.

Who am I? A self confessed gadget nerd, Film and TV buff, Bruce Lee wannabe (Wing Chun and Aikido), loves visiting new places and experiencing everything life has to offer.


When I am not photographing weddings I’m walking the dogs, Guss and Sammi aka Beagle and the bear. (They are more handsome than me, that’s why they get the featured spot on the page).


I enjoy fishing, films, Game of thrones, Peaky Blinders, walking, Gin, Jack Daniels, a good wine, partying with friends and chilling out with the family.

My Style

Natural, unique and creative. So what does that mean? Well it means capturing people in the moment, as it happens. No interruptions from me just great story telling photographs of your wedding day, with some creative portraits thrown in. I love creating creative portraits of the couple that are unique and dramatic. I’m always looking for something a little different whether it be incredible architecture or sweeping landscapes, reflections or natural light that is just WOW. A picture that you would be proud to hang on your wall.

Kind Words

Feedback from my amazing couples
Steve was the perfect wedding photographer for Sian and I. The photos turned out wonderful and really captured the happiness and essence of the day. Steve ensured that we got all the shots we wanted and all our family and friends keep saying how great he was. We would thoroughly recommend Art by Design for any couple looking to capture their special day.

Beautiful photos, amazing day and perfect photographer. We cannot thank Steve enough for the stunning photos that he took of our wedding day. The only problem we now have is trying to choose the ones we want for our album. Highly recommended

Thanks so much to our wonderful photographer Steve Wheller – art by design. What a fantastic day we had. If it wasn’t for you it would have been much more stressful! We can’t thank you enough for everything yesterday. We are so excited to see the rest of the photos. Many thanks from us both
