We weren’t sure at first if we needed a videographer for our wedding but we were so glad we decided on one. Phil captured our wedding with so much care and detail, showed us things we missed throughout the day and allowed us to watch back the special details over and over. The sound quality of the ceremony and speeches were perfect, especially as it was a little windy and I wasn’t sure if we would be able to hear everything but we did and brought so much emotion watching it back. The video brought happy tears and confirmed our decision that having a videographer capture our day was the right one. If anyone is unsure about whether it is something they need then I would say 100% this is just as important as your photographer. Highly recommend Phil at Solar Films as he captured everything beautifully and the majority of our guests and even ourselves weren’t even aware of his presence filming us which made it even more natural. We love that we can watch our special day over and over and share it with our own family one day too. Thank you so much!

Phil, What can I say! Absolutely priceless. We had love, laughter, tears - every single emotion we felt on the day reciprocated watching our wedding film and also much much more. Gareth got to see me on the morning of the wedding and vice versa, it was great seeing him arrive along with the guests. We genuinely didn’t think we’d get as much footage at night as we did. It was great to see everyone having fun! We love our wedding film so much and like I’ve explained to many of my brides to be - this is a day and night captured of all our nearest and dearest that we can treasure and can watch for the rest of our lives. You made this so personal to our day and us, music to our taste and not only was it sentimental, it was so much fun! Phil, you were such a pleasure to work with! Thank you to the moon and back for such amazing beautiful memories that we can watch time and time again. Lots of Love, the Hammond Family.

Having a wedding that was less than traditional (second time for both of us) we didn’t have all the usual bells and whistles for our day. The budget was getting a bit stretched but I was determined that I wanted the whole day captured on film – I didn’t want to miss a single thing! Phil was amazing from the moment I contacted him (I was a bit intimidated by a lot of the companies I had researched before – and admittedly embarrassed to ask about the price!) Because of the way that Solar structured their website – all of the important information was already there so I was feeling quite confident about contacting them! On the actual day, Phil was reassuring, professional and totally unobtrusive and the end product was worth every single penny. We have watched it countless times with friends and family since we got it and it feels like we experience the day all over again. We celebrated our first wedding anniversary last weekend and of course.. on the anniversary of the actual day, out came the bubbles .. and the tissues.. and we cried and laughed our way through the entire day… again! Nobody gets to repeat their wedding day, but having a film of it like this, is the closest you’ll get!

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!

We can honestly say that out of all the professionals at our wedding, we are so happy we chose Phil to film our wedding. He was more like part of our guest’s rather than there as our videographer, he fitted in perfectly & is the friendliest guy ever! We are over the moon with our final footage and so happy to have it to look back on. He captured everything perfectly & there was never a moment where you felt you were being filmed. It’s been lovely to keep in touch with Phil and see him at friend’s weddings and we keep recommending him so hopefully see him lots more in the future.

Solar Films! What can I say... Phil, you're 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 can't believe we have tracking shots in our film- they say its actually a film, not a video. I can't thank you enough- you have an amazing talent.

I just want to thank Phil from Solar Weddings so so much for capturing our wedding so perfectly! He brought back so many moments I totally forgot about and got me an emotional wreck 🙂 The video is absolutely out of this world I’m so so happy with it and wish I could do it all over again as it looks like It was such an amazing wedding. I didn’t feel like I could absorb it all on the day so it’s lovely to be able to take it all in now! Thank you for making me feel like I can relive my wedding day all over again and enjoy every moment! I’m so happy with your work. So glad I have this video to cherish forever. I would rate Phil 5/5 for his amazing work and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to remember their wedding day from start to finish. He was definitely one of our best suppliers on the day 🙂

Brett & myself wanted to thank you for our wedding film. 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 highlight section at the end makes us smile every time we see it. We can’t thank you enough. Wishing you all the best for the future.

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 overjoyed 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 at how much and how well he captured the day. Solar Films 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.
