About


These unique souvenirs can be created in next to no time. Each person takes from three to five minutes depending on style required and detail. Each finished silhouette is placed within a protective card mount so they are ready to frame and enjoy!

The Silhouette Artist is a trained artist who sold his first portrait at the age of 14, got his degree in graphic design from St Martins in 1990 and has been doing portraiture & caricature of one sort or another ever since! He loves helping to generate the buzz of an event or party, and adores the reaction his lightning-fast likenesses get. He took up silhouette portraiture around 10 years ago and thoroughly enjoys the discipline and focus it takes to create an amusing or accurate likeness of a subject - "It's one of those art forms that very few people do, so it's nice to stand out from the crowd and create work that people can take home as a unique souvenir of a memorable night - I see my silhouette portraits as little parcels of pleasure!"   

Steve is very happy to offer a free silhouette portrait of the couple which he can cut from photos emailed by the client - this can be done prior to the wedding to ensure that the stars of the show don't miss out on getting their portraits done, which can happen as they're often so busy with all their guests and duties. The image can also be used on their invitations and any other wedding paraphernalia or displays!

For a small extra cost, Steve can also 'double-cut' the happy couple's silhouette and place it in the centre of a Wedding Signature Board, along with any message you'd like him to write for you - usually the wedding date and couple's names - which can be signed by guests. This makes a marvellous alternative to the standard Wedding Guest Book and a souvenir which the couple can frame and enjoy forever!

Steve was fantastic and really brought our theme of 'Wonder' into reality. Our delegates loved his work and he was very friendly, professional and fun. We had so much praise for what he did and I cannot thank him enough. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for something exciting and different for an event. Thank you!!

Steve was absolutely fantastic! He brought bags of enthusiasm, set himself up immediately and got straight to work photographing guests and making their silhouettes. He even stopped working to help bring the wedding cake over from the house to the main tent, across a gravel driveway and an open field. Not to mention that he finished off the remaining silhouettes for us after the event and even posted them to us to distribute amongst the guests that didn't get theirs on the day. 5/5 rating doesn't even come close - what a superstar! Thanks Steve!

Steve was absolutely brilliant at my 50th birthday party. He is a great character, and seriously wow'd my guests with his silhouetting skills. It's hard to believe that Steve can capture the essence of a person in just a couple of minutes, with only a pair of scissors and some black paper! A charming and professional piece of art for my guests to take home and treasure. He even made sure he did my portrait before the date, and days later snipped a couple of extra guests who'd had to leave early. The likenesses were so good, that when we found a stray silhouette after the party, we could instantly tell who it was and could post it on. I've had so many nice comments, both about Steve and his artwork. Would not hesitate to have him back next time. Great value for money and highly recommended.

He went above and beyond and stayed later to see as many of our guests as possible. He did mainly characters as far as I'm aware which I think meant he was able to get round more people. He worked really hard and the feedback I had from guests was superb. His communication before hand was brilliant, we couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommended and an asset to your company.

Steve arrived early which was amazing and brought an iPad so could take some photos and be working on those silhouettes and so guests (including the bride and groom) wouldn't have to stand and wait for him to do them. He did lots of live ones also in the time he was with us and the quality was amazing! The likeness from the real people to the silhouette was astonishing. He was a very likeable person and evidently loves his job. I have had many comments from guest about how they have kept their silhouettes as they are so great! It was a pleasure to have him as part of our wedding. Charles and Gemma.

The way he created those silhouettes and how quick was amazing. I would give him 5/5 and would recommend him to anyone as all my guests were equally impressed. He even went above and beyond to ensure guests got a silhouette and made sure we got the full two hours.
