‘ We live in the Middle East but married in Scotland so all contact with Phil was over email and we didn’t meet until the day of the wedding. Honestly, Phil could have sold us any of his packages but he suggested the one that best fit our day. He could easily have squeezed us for more money but he didn’t and we really appreciated this – We were working with other wedding suppliers who definitely couldn’t be described in the same way.

On the actual day of the wedding, we had only 50 guests and two photographers… This could have been a recipe for disaster with a videographer too. To this day I don’t know how Phil managed to capture everything without intruding on any aspect of the day. I watched sections of the video and honestly can’t remember seeing a camera, and neither of us felt that we were on film at any point of the day. In the best possible way, we forgot that he was even there!

The work that Phil did on our final video was well worth the wait. Everything we wanted captured of our big day was there and more. Everybody who has watched it so far has been amazed by the quality. Those that were there were happy to remember the day and those that were unable to come feel that they were able to share the day with us too.

I can honestly say that working with Phil was such a pleasure. As we live so far away he has been very accommodating with ‘aftercare’ and is currently splitting the DVD so that we can download it on the archaic internet system we live with. Two days after we received our link the DVD’s were delivered to the family in Scotland.

I could go on but I think you get the gist – We love Phil! ‘

‘Solar Weddings! What can I say………..Phil your a genius!!!! Our Hogmanay wedding was captured just perfectly! Both Neal and I work in the TV and Film industry….. And we were worried that our film would be very traditional just like everyone else’s. But after chatting to Phil ……..he captured it more than we could have ever imagined. If anyone is looking to get a film done…..Phil is the man! We wanted Phil to be creative and not be tied into what a wedding film should be- when we watched it- it was us! It was our personality! Just the way we wanted it to be. Our families and friends are even having viewings in their homes, showing people they know our dvd. Phil I want to say a huge thank you, we had the best day of our lives and because of you we have the most amazing memories. From the wedding to the fireworks display on the Royal Mile. Ooohhh totally forgot but my colleagues in TV cant believe we have tracking shots in our film- they say its actually a film not a video. I cant thank you enough- you have an amazing talent. Best Wishes Kirsten and Neal Skillen, Marlins Wynd, Edinburgh  Xxx’

‘We’re thoroughly pleased with the exceptional quality of the wedding film that Phil produced for us. The key attribute to the production of the film was Phil’s personal understanding.

Leading up to our wedding we had the opportunity to meet with Phil such that we could all get to know one another. We told Phil that the key reason for choosing to have our wedding filmed was for the benefit of my grandparents in Australia who were unable to make our wedding in Scotland. Subsequently Phil went above and beyond to ensure the film was conducted with them in mind. In the days following the wedding he posted a short video clip online for my grandparents to view. Naturally they were over joyed at seeing highlights of the wedding day. We were so grateful to Phil for having suggested and acting upon this short clip,

Last night we sat down with the champagne to watch the feature length end product and in all honesty we were amazed with how much and how well he captured the day. Solar Weddings have given us a magnificent video that we’re extraordinarily impressed with and proud of.

There are many wedding videographers to choose from who produce sharp cinematographic films. What separates Phil from the crowd is his empathetic, personal touch which leads to a unique film – Your film – of the highest quality each and every time.’

Guy & Becky Stewart ~ The Balmoral, Edinburgh

‘ Solar Weddings are fantastic, great service and great results. all of our guests and even our photographer commented on how little they noticed Phil around the wedding and felt very at ease with him around.Phil has done himself proud with the results he has produced for myself and my husband!! Before, during and after the wedding he was always very approachable and always completed everything i asked for and i he totally exceeded my expectations!! Highly recommend Solar Weddings and so happy I chose them.’

‘We were married in August and after a last minute decision to hire a videographer we got in touch with Phil and the team at Solar Weddings. They were recommended to us by the best wedding planner in Edinburgh therefore we knew they’d be great and just by chance they were available. Phil was an absolute pleasure to have as a part of our day. Such a lovely, genuine and professional videographer. Despite not having had the opportunity to meet him prior to the day, he delivered everything we had hoped for. He was so discreet on the day that we didn’t even notice all the moments he captured until we watched our video. It was amazing to see the ceremony, speeches and first dance again and in particular, to see all the guests enjoying themselves throughout the day. Every time we’ve watched the film it feels like we are back in the moment again, he captured it perfectly.
Thank you Phil and the team for the memories, we will treasure them for years to come! Ashley and Chris Bruce’

 ‘We were absolutely delighted with our wedding dvd. Phil is a gem to work with and did a fantastic job of capturing our day. We can hardly thank him enough for all his hard work. Everything from the initial booking to the day itself was seamless. We have watched our dvd with all our family and friends and everyone loves it! It is captured in such a natural way and makes us re-live that special day over and over. We loved getting the highlights video first as a teaser for the real thing! Phil has filmed a few weddings I’ve been at and the praise for him couldn’t be higher! Thank you Phil!’

‘Having just had the utter pleasure of watching our DVD from Solar Weddings I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Phil for his amazing work!
We had an wonderful day and were so happy Solar Weddings could be there to capture it.
Phil was so friendly, approachable and unobtrusive from the first phone call, throughout the whole wedding day to delivery of our DVD. Your professionalism was second to none!
We booked largely on the recommendation of our friends and having seen their DVD I was sure ours would be fabulous…and it is! Our wedding dvd is incredible- my husband and I have just watched and laughed, cried and then laughed some more!
Phil captured every aspect of our day so beautifully and it has all been put together so seamlessly into an item that we can truly treasure for the rest of our lives…can’t wait to show the family!
The wee highlights footage at the end with our first dance song is just perfect!
Solar Weddings could not come more highly recommended, Phil was understanding, supportive and helpful throughout the day and he stayed much later than we had expected- he must have enjoyed capturing our stupendous dance moves!
Although we can’t do our big day again, we can watch it captured perfectly thanks to you!’

‘Hi Phil, Evan and I have now watched our DVD, it was spectacular! We absolutely loved it. You helped to capture our day perfectly. It was magical! You were friendly & professional and helped to step in when need be. We really appreciated it.
You captured our special day perfectly especially the ‘ little ones’. We absolutely loved how you captured everyone that was part of our day.
My favourite sections are the first dance and the montage.They are both incredible! If anyone requires a videographer we will certainly recommend you. Thanks again Annette and Evan xx

PS – We have watched our guest messages over and over again, they are hilarious. Worth the extra money, absolutely brilliant :)

ANNETTE & EVAN OLIPHANT ~ ST MARY’S CHURCH DALMAHOY

‘Hi Phil…we just wanted to let you know how much we absolutely loved the DVD!!! Words cant describe how thankful we are to have had you filming our special day. We were so worried about finding a videographer who could incorporate both our Scottish and Iraqi culture into the video and adapt to the way we do Iraqi weddings. You captured it beautifully, never missed a single moment, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more! The fact that you and my wedding photographers got on so well on the day was great, and the way you incorporated their photos into the video is genius…we have never seen any wedding video like it! The whole thing is stunning and you truly are amazing at what you do! Your service was professional, classy, modern and great value for money. And whats even better is that you’re such a nice guy, very friendly and made us feel relaxed on the day. All our friends and family loved it and lots of tears were shed while watching it…which shows you did a fantastic job of portraying the emotion that was displayed on the day! Love it love it love it and would highly recommend you to all my friends and family. Once again, thank you so much. ‘

‘Hi Phil , Brett & myself wanted to thank you for our wedding DVD. We love it, love it, love it!
It is not only very professionally done but you have managed to capture everyone who was at the wedding all enjoying themselves. You seemed to be at the right place at the right time for every moment & very unobtrusive. A wonderful mix of close ups & far away shots capturing every moment that was special to us on our day. Furthermore capturing our personalities very well. The move it move it scene at end of our ceremony & the wonderful montage section at the end with black & white & colour makes us smile everytime we see it.
We can’t thank you enough. Wishing you all the best for the future.’
