VOWS Awards winner 2009 Videographer

You should hire a professional videographer for much the same reasons you use a professional wedding venue, dress supplier or limousine company. They have the skills and the experience.

They've done it many times before, their product has been tested by previous customers, they're insured, they use quality equipment (with back-ups if something goes wrong)... They know what they're doing

Watch The Birdie has these skills and the experience necessary to professionally record and edit your wedding footage to the high standard you would expect.

Watch The Birdie opened in 2005 and since then have produced over 400 beautiful wedding films, each one as unique as the wedding couple themselves. Since this early days our work has taken us all over Scotland and beyond to Dubai and Austria. Our work has been recognised in the industry by being VOWS finalists in 2009, 2011 and 2015 and winners in 2009. We are also delighted to be recommended by many venue's and photographer's but mostly excited by the many recommendations we get from former wedding couples.

We film all forms of weddings including religious, humanist, registrar and civil partnerships, in all types of locations including castles, hotels, houses, marquees and clubs and over Scotland, including Fife, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness.

Oh and why Watch The Birdie? In the early days of photography to attract the subject a photographer would carry a mechanical bird that chirped and the phrase watch the birdie became a command at portrait sessions.

We're just a phone call or email away...
