David and Helene

We absolutely love the pictures you have sent so far as they are wonderful, and we are really excited to receive the rest of them when you’ve worked your magic on them! Are we ok to share these images with family, friends and online?

Thank you and Jeanette (we hope we spelled that correctly) so much again for all of your hard work, patience and kindness on our special day. All of our family and friends were so complimentary about you and they will be even more thrilled when they see the fabulous photographs you have taken please do use a couple of photos for your website or whatever else you need…they are brilliant pieces of art in our opinion.

“Setting out to find a photographer for the big day we heard about Phil andJeanette through word of mouth and then by chance happened to meet at an open day at The Alnwick Garden. They are both very nice people and Phil arranged a meeting at his house to discuss our needs & wants. Phil andJeanette have a professional yet relaxed approach to their work which suited us perfectly and put us at ease straight away. They were very accepting of our ideas and offered lots more from their experience which we took on
board. On the day they did a great job politely organising the masses to get all the photos we wanted. The weather wasn’t kind but Phil and Jeanette kindly returned to the venue two weeks later (in the sun) to get even more photos free of charge. We were extremely happy with the photo package provided and the DVD accompanied by the music played at the wedding – a great service provided by a great photographer and more importantly two lovely people!”

“Phil and Jeanette listened to everything we wanted and went over and above what we expected! For a couple who dreaded the idea of having their photo taken, not only have Phil and Jeannette produced beautiful photos but also managed to make it fun for us too! It was a pleasure having them at our wedding” We would like to personally thank you both for all of your hard work, assistance and top quality service. You were brilliant not just on our wedding day itself but also in preparing posing guides, scouting out our venues and making us feel very relaxed in regards to our photography choices”.

“For the most important day of our lives so far, Phil provided a fantastic, professional and friendly service. The day was tailor made to our every wish, and for the entire day Phil and his team were enthusiastic, non-intrusive and quick on their feet to capture the most special moments, including the spectacular sunset. We couldn’t possibly be happier with the finished product, Phil’s skill and hard work have given us the most amazing photos which we will cherish forever! Thank you so much!

“We knew straight away when browsing Phil’s website that we wanted him to photograph our big day. We got married in Italy and were reluctant to investigate the packages on offer locally through our wedding planner, fearing the one size fits all approach was the polar opposite of what we wanted. We made the right choice – Phil accompanied us to Sorrento and took magical photos. He put us both at ease and this shows in the shots, each one beautiful and together telling the story of the best day of our lives perfectly. Thank you Phil for helping to make our day unforgettable!”

“Thanks Phil. Lovely to meet you both. Me and Pete were DJs in the 90s and met many photographers however non as nice as you guys. If i was getting married again i would certainly use you. You never know one day as paths might cross again and ill show you a few moves haha.”

All best Phil. Tony

Fred and Paul

 

Phil is a fantastic photographer and we have recommended him to loads of people, especially for weddings. He took the time to understand what we wanted and everything was done perfectly. Ours was the only wedding I’ve ever known where literally every single guest praised the photographer’s professionalism and how he put everyone at ease, even those who aren’t too keen on having their photos taken.

“We would like to personally thank you both for all of your hard work, assistance and top quality service.

You were brilliant not just on our wedding day itself but also in preparing posing guides, scouting out our venues and making us feel very relaxed in regards to our photography choices.

On the day itself you were both fantastic in organising our guests for photos and making everyone feel at ease. We had several comments that you were funny and engaging. You fitted well within our special day and at the end of the evening we were satisfied we had made the right choice, and that was before we had seen the photos!

The following day, as we were waiting to board the flight for our honeymoon, we received some sample shots which we were thrilled with; they captured the emotion of the occasion and we were excited to see the full set.

Upon our return from holiday we were fully kept up to date with the progress of our wedding DVD and photographs and loved that we were able to have a viewing. Our friends and family love the photographs, a splendid reminder of our big day. Overall, we would absolutely recommend your services. A top class service.”

David Grey (Father of the Groom)

“Hi Phil, David here: I like your blog on wedding photography Church vs Civil: the point is from a Church perspective there are too many amateurs charlatans and opportunists who become obtrusive, use flash at the wrong moments (any moment) and have little or no sympathy for the Faith aspect of a Church wedding: in contrast you offered a service that was unobtrusive, well planned and sympathetic, and no – one even knew you were there until they saw the results which were and are amazing,. many clergy and Vergers have had bad experiences and as their outlook is not commercial they tend to take a risk reduction safety first stance, which is a shame would like to personally thank you both for all of your hard work, assistance and top quality service.”

“Thank you so much for the Photo’s of our wedding. I can’t stop looking at them, they are like something from a magazine! Even my Mum keeps saying that it’s like looking at a celebrity wedding! You have captured our memories perfectly, such a special day and I will treasure these forever! Thank you so much, your professionalism and friendliness we’re on everybody’s lips, all of our guests commented on what an incredible job you have done and how lovely Jeanette and you were. I hope you both have an amazing Christmas and new year. Thank you again for everything!”

With love

Phil
“What to say about you. You are such a calm, modest and honest person. I remembered the first day when we met and how I asked too many questions and you replied to all them with a great smile. I spent such a memorable day with you in Newcastle where you promised to visit India and attend my marriage. And then the action begin by visiting India straight from Newcastle (UK) and I was honoured. You were there with me for 10 days in my wedding and you made it more memorable by taking such wonderful images and even got it in the local newspaper. My excitement doubled when you showed me the pictures. Every picture I would think this was the best but to my belief the next comes best too and it made it difficult to decide which one is best as all of those were awesome. You just made us look so beautiful; thanks to you dude. You have made my wedding most memorable which I will be mesmerised by my whole life. I would like to see you soon in the near future. Thanks Phil for being there”.

Talking about photos they are stunning and provide such a good story of our day. You and Jeanette make such a good team and you will be at the top of of my recommendations list for any future brides”.

With the warmest hugs and love

“We really fell on our feet when Phil was recommended to us as a potential wedding photographer. After meeting, discussing various aspects & viewing a selection of his portfolio our minds were made up.

Phil & Jeanette looked after us from start to finish – the best service we could have hoped for on our day! The photos are amazing & it means we’ve now got great memories for years to come. We cannot recommend them enough! Thank you so much :)”

Hi Phil

“Sorry for the delay in getting back to you we have been away on holiday for the last couple of weeks. Just want to thank you for the DVD…. it is absolutely fantastic! What a brilliant job you have done! We both love it and it brought all the memories from the day flooding back. I hope you are having a nice weekend.

On the day itself you were both fantastic in organising our guests for photos and making everyone feel at ease. We had several comments that you were funny and engaging. You fitted well within our special day and at the end of the evening we were satisfied we had made the right choice, and that was before we had seen the photos!

Megan – Alnwick Gardens wedding

“Hi Phil,

Thank you for providing us with such beautiful photographs of our wedding. There have been so many lovely comments. One friend even said surely that is not you two you looking so good! As promised you captured both formal and informal moments brilliantly and during the day we hardly noticed you were there. Your advice leading up to the day made me think of things I had not even considered. I will highly recommend you to friends and family in the future.

Your help and advice on how to pose really did help!”

Steve & Cat (Mr and Mrs Dale)

 

“How lucky Cat and I were to find you through our very good friend Emma. Searching for a photographer who would be as good as yourself is like searching for a needle in a haystack. There are so many out there who provide so little with such high costs (and believe me we searched).

From the moment we met you within the first hour I could tell you were passionate about what you do with the camera and it was not just a 9 till 5 job. Phil you have the best equipment, best personality and the best eye to capture phenomenal shots like you did at our crazy wedding. I think no one else on the planet could have captured our day like you did as we never stayed still.

Thank you so much for being professional and friendly to all our guests and ourselves. Thank you for staying so late on our special day capturing the shots at the party afterwards especially that it was New Year’s Eve and you have your own family to be with. Again showing your dedication doing what you love. We have shown nearly all of our dearest friends and family the DVD slide show you created for us and all have said how amazing it was (with a lot of tears, tissues and laughs) and how well you caught it.

We cannot thank you enough”

“Dear Phil,

I’m looking forward to seeing you later in the week and astonished by your continued modesty. You are a friend of mine (I hope) and I would find it difficult to provide negative feedback for that reason.

However, the overall quality of this portfolio absolved me of any accusation that I’m being kind to you.

Matt and Anouski are delighted by every new wave of images, which is what matters more than everything else. You have brought out the best of a very pretty bride and a stunning dress and made her look beautiful on a very important day. You have also captured the essence of a great weekend, one of the best of my life, with all of the wedding and group shots.

I can’t thank you enough for fulfilling my trust in you and producing such a great set of images. You’ve made a number of the most important people in my life very happy and that makes me very happy. A thousand thanks.

When the project is over and you have completed the portfolio, can we talk about producing a bound album, for Clare. With your permission, when all is done and dusted, I’d like to post a recommendation on the “Which Local” website, which I mentioned to you. This is endorsed by “Which” magazine.

Anybody can access the website and if they look for wedding or portrait photographers within a number of miles of their postcode they find recommendations from “Which” members. As I say, when you’ve finished the project, I’d like to post philpunton.com, but only with your permission can we talk about it?”
