Love Gets Sweeter are passionate about creating personal and unique wedding films for every couple that book us to capture their wedding. I’m so proud of every film we create that after the couple have shown it off to their family and friends I like to show it off on here too! The Love Gets Sweeter Blog is full of real weddings from all over the UK as well as wedding supplier recommendations and a few wedding tips that I pick up along the way!

This wedding videography blog really shows off the Love Gets Sweeter style and if you stay a while you may even get a feel for what I am like (which is handy if I’m the person you choose to spend the day with, filming your wedding)! My names Charlene and, as well as filming your day, I also edit every single film for that added personal touch. Do have a look around and if you have any questions or would like to know a bit more about what we do then do get in touch!

A Lovely Leeds Wedding

Katy and Luke were married in a beautiful village church in Barwick before heading over to Oulton Hall, Leeds, to celebrate with family and friends. The wind was blowing a gale for most of the day but that didn’t stop the sun shining down on us all! I even got to catch up with a Mother of Bride from a previous wedding, the very reason Katy got in touch as she kindly recommended me!

Katy and Lukes Wedding Highlights10

In the morning I had the pleasure of hanging out with the Jackson family at the Bride’s parents gorgeous farm house in Barwick and had fun filming the girls getting pampered while Dad made us cups of tea. Katy had a wonderful wedding morning surprise when she opened her present from Luke. It took her a few moments to work out why she had a photo album of pug puppy photos but when she did realise everyone (even the Flossy & Leigh make-up girls) were cooing over them and saying how impressed they were with the Groom’s amazing gift! The guys house was the usual working out how to tie ties nicely and opening the fun gifts too!

The ceremony was lovely and Lukes face said it all when he saw his bride walk down the aisle towards him. Katy really did look stunning and her Dad looked super proud!

The new Mr and Mrs made their way out of the church in to the sunshine to chat with their guests before being showered in confetti by the church gates. We then welcomed them at Oulton Hall and their photographer took them outside to get those all important group photographs. We even found time afterwards to let the happy couple have a wander around the beautiful grounds at Oulton Hall to get some gorgeous couple shots.

The speeches were possibly my favourite part of the day. The Groom said such heartfelt and beautiful things about his new wife that even her Dad had to resort to using a table napkin to wipe away the tears, which in turn had everyone else in tears!

The wedding party was then moved over to a more modern building for guests to enjoy a photo booth and DJ to party the night away, once Katy and Luke had had their first dance as husband and wife that is! And in front of some gorgeous ‘K & L’ light-up letters from Doris Loves!

I’m sure you can see from the wedding film what a happy and fun wedding it was and it really was a pleasure to film. The families made us feel so welcome that it enabled us to capture some really lovely moments throughout the day because it was all so natural.

Thanks again Katy and Luke, it was wonderful to have been chosen to capture your wedding and to be the first official one I filmed after the arrival of my gorgeous daughter. You made my first day back at work a great one!

Magical May Weddings

May is one of my favourite months of the year. Not only do both my husband and I celebrate our birthdays in this month but we’ve also filmed some of my all time favourite weddings in the late spring/early summer month of May.

Way back in 2010 my second ever wedding was in May and I had the pleasure of driving all the way to Somerset to film it! St Audries was the picturesque setting and on one of the hottest days of the year I had the silly idea of packing tights, funny what you remember! The ceremony was held in the beautiful glass orangery in the gardens and then everyone enjoyed the sunshine on the lawn while drinking and mingling, it really was a special wedding.

The year after I had the pleasure of filming my first wedding at Thornton Manor in the Wirral, now my most popular venue to film at! Tracy wore a stunning silk Jenny Packham gown and her bridesmaids wore different blush tones and grey for a really vintage feel. I also LOVED their VW camper van with it’s black and white checked floor, very cool!

In 2013 we had a cheeky break and blocked out all of May to celebrate our joint 30th birthdays as well as an amazing holiday where we drove from Vegas to San Diego via Yosemite, San Fran and Santa Barbara (to name a few) and we even made a film of that (I just couldn’t help myself haha)

2014 was a wonderful year for weddings and May had two of my all time favourites! Hannah and Trevor went for a DIY feel with lots of entertainment and gorgeous handmade details, including a cake table that guests had contributed to. Their day was held at Sandhole Oak Barn in Cheshire and they filled the beams with beautiful paper poms poms. The bride wore a cute capped sleeved wedding dress and the groom rocked gold shoes…

Rebecca and Rob went all out at their wedding at Carlton Towers. The groom even arrived in a helicopter, they danced back down the aisle after being married and drank Pornstar martinis…epic!

If you’re getting married in May then get in touch! I only take on a few each year so I can ensure I give each special couple the best, most personal service I can so it books up quick! This year I’ve already been to Leeds and I’m also filming in Lancashire and Cheshire!

A Fairytale Castle Wedding

Peckforton Castle in Cheshire was the romantic setting chosen for these fairytale wedding celebrations. Maria and Tommy said their wedding vows in front of family and friends at St Helen’s Church, Tarpoley where Tommy had to take a few deep breaths to get his words out! He didn’t hold back the emotions during the speeches either and I dare any of you not to get a little emotional if you ever watch their longer film, I even found myself laughing and crying along with their guests while I edited it!

Maria started her day getting ready with the girls in a beautiful suite at Peckforton Castle. She was soon being laced in to her Alfred Angelo princess dress (and a real princess dress as it’s name was ‘Belle’) and after a little bit of lightheaded-ness (corsets can have that effect in a warm room) and fanning from the maids they were soon in the wedding cars heading to the church. The boys enjoyed the fresh air and a few shandy’s while waiting for guests and soon Tommy was waiting at the bottom of the church aisle for his beautiful bride …

Tommy fought the tears while repeating his vows and the guests joined in with him. It’s so lovely to see and you can’t help but get caught up in such a beautiful moment. They both beamed as they walked back down the aisle as husband and wife and were soon pulling funny poses and faces as they had their group photos taken in the grounds of Peckforton Castle. Zenna at Zen Photographic was in charge of capturing their stunning images and finished with a huge group shot in the great hall.

The meal was followed by some heart-warming speeches. I loved how they were the perfect balance of funny and caring, you could just feel the love gushing out of them! Tommy struggled to keep the emotions from bubbling over as he spoke about his beautiful wife, much to the amusement of the guests who couldn’t help but laugh!

Their castle turret cake was incredible (what a talented friend they have) but it was the first dance that I had been dying to see and I wasn’t disappointed. They did a little number to Love Is An Open Door from Frozen and it was the cutest thing I have ever seen!!!

Some big news to share…

2014 was the busiest year yet for Love Gets Sweeter Wedding Films and we had the pleasure of travelling all over capturing some amazing weddings! From Aberdeenshire and all over the north west including Cheshire, Shropshire and even the beautiful Lake District.

In all of those wonderful places I was sharing those exciting memories with the little bundle of joy brewing inside of me! Yep, for those of you that don’t already know, the big announcement is that Lee and I are excitedly waiting for the birth of our latest edition to the Love Gets Sweeter family! My wonderful couples have been so supportive over the last 9 1/2 months (why do people say it’s 9…?) and loved any excuse to feed me up during their wedding day so we didn’t get too tired. Now it’s time for me to really enjoy a bit of chilled time in these last precious weeks while we wait patiently for little baby McNabb to let us know that she’s ready to meet us. So I may be a little quieter than normal but don’t let that stop you having a nosey at my past blog posts and all those gorgeous wedding videos over on my Portfolio page!

BabyShowerBiscuits

So I thank you in advance for your patience while we enjoy some family time and learn a little about being parents. 2015 is set to be an amazing year already and I’m looking forward to filming so many amazing weddings as a new Mum.

A Vintage Gawsworth Hall Wedding

Fran and Cam’s wedding had two of the most picturesque settings I have ever seen. Their ceremony took place in the quaint St Michaels and All Angels Church at Crewe Green followed by their wedding reception at the Grade I listed historic Gawsworth Hall. Driving up to Gawsworth is like arriving on to an old film set, it really is the most beautiful Cheshire setting for a vintage inspired wedding like this…

Fran and Cams Wedding Highlights8

Fran came to me after her wedding planner, Andrea at A Fabulous Day, recommended me. It always feels so nice when you’re highly recommended and working with Andrea I knew I’d be part of a great team of wedding suppliers!

We started the day filming Fran and Cam getting ready at Crewe Hall alongside their chosen wedding photographers HBA Photography. Flossy and Leigh were on hand to make the girls look beautiful while the boys had fun searching the internet to find out how they attached a pocket watch to Cam’s suit! Everyone was soon dressed in their finest and ready to head to the church. Cam waited nervously for his bride to arrive and was soon grinning from ear to ear as he turned to watch Fran walk down the aisle towards him. The service flew by and we were all soon standing to welcome the new Mr and Mrs Wyborn back down the aisle. Guests eagerly greeted them inbetween family portraits and were soon being ushered to the awaiting bus to take them to Gawsworth.

A shower of confetti welcomed the happy couple before they headed in to the gardens to enjoy some delighful canapes and Kiwi inspired cocktails. The bride and groom snuck off for a few moments to have some photos taken alone in the stunning grounds of Gawsworth before everyone made their way to the reception marquee. Guests were treated to a really cute village fete table layout with lots of thoughtful touches Fran and Cam had spent lots of time sourcing. When it was time for the speeches the champagne was even poured in to vintage champagne saucers that Fran and her Dad had been collecting for months!

With such beautiful details and personal touches it’s hard not to love this wedding, it’s so well thought out and looked beautiful it really was a pleasure to film! Though it’s not always about the detail, it’s the people that make the wedding what it is and it’s lovely to watch so many people enjoying themselves and to even see the bride and groom let their hair down when they don’t think we’re looking!

A Winter Lake District Wedding

Just a little something to cheer you up on this gloomy January day. This Lake District wedding was possibly my favourite of the year, so intimate and romantic it’s hard not to fall in love with everything about this wedding! The setting for this winter wedding was Broadoaks Country House Hotel near Lake Windermere, Cumbria.

Mikki and Marks Wedding Highlights8

Mikki and Mark are very good friends of my photographer friends Evie and Jamie (Chapter Photography) and so I was over the moon when they decided they’d like to have me film their day too and work with such an amazing list of suppliers (these can be found at the bottom if you’re after some inspiration).

Click here to read more and see their wedding highlights film

Mikki and her bridal party started the day beside Lake Windermere at the MacDonald Old English Hotel where Flossy & Leigh were on hand to make the girls look gorgeous by perfecting their hair and make-up (and adding that stunning piece of bling to Mikki’s hair courtesy of Ann at Eleventh Heaven). Evie was obviously there ready to photograph the gorgeous bride while Jamie headed off with my assistant to film the boys getting ready over at Broadoaks. The morning flew by and soon Dad was popping in to see how beautiful his daughter looked in her dress before we all made the short journey to the wedding venue.

Mark waited nervously with his guests for his bride and the rain managed to hold off just enough for her to arrive and make her way inside to meet her handsome groom. The ceremony room looked so beautiful and was the perfect setting for this intimate wedding ceremony. Mikki glowed as she walked down the aisle and they spent the rest of the time grinning at each other and fighting back the happy tears.

Everyone made a quick dash outside for a group photograph as the rain began to fall before heading inside to see how amazing the reception room looked. Mikki and Mark even braved the rain so we could get some gorgeous moments of just the two of them in the grounds at Broadoaks. Red Floral Architecture did an amazing job at creating such an magical feeling for everyone who walked in to that room (even the staff were taking lots of pictures, it looked that beautiful) with their table display. Caroline’s Cake’s cupcakes stood proudly by the window as the guests made their way to their seats. Dad started off the wedding breakfast with a quick speech before Mark and his Best Man stood up to take centre stage after the meal.

Merry Christmas To You!

It’s that fabulous time of year, Christmas! I hope you’re already on the way to starting your festive celebrations and have the mince pies ready for Santa’s visit down the chimney? I thought I’d share a little Christmas photo with you all to give you a chuckle.

An Enchanting Castle Wedding

It doesn’t get more romantic than a castle wedding. With some stunning flower arrangements and twinkling fairy lights this Peckforton Castle wedding in Cheshire really is the perfect setting.

Kimberley and Martins wedding highlights10

Kimberley and Martin actually booked after Kimberley and her Mum came to see me at The Wedding Fairs show at Event City, Manchester!

The day started with Kimberley getting ready in a gorgeous suite over looking the castle grounds. The sky was a little gloomy and rain was showing up on everyone’s weather apps but with such stunning surroundings the bride wasn’t going to let it ruin her day! Martin arrived to see his guests having fun with Peckforton Castles birds of prey and even posed for photos himself. As always the morning flew by in a bit of a blur and we were soon ushered downstairs to watch Kimberley and Martin say their wedding vows surrounded by family and friends-and a stunning aisle of flowers arranged by Red Floral Architecture.

Knowsley Wedding Feature Film

Well, after getting a very lovely text off the bride asking if/when I would be sharing their next wedding film I had edited on the blog I thought it would only be polite to share it with you all. After all, it is utterly gorgeous and it may be nice for some of you to see what a longer, feature film looks like! Make sure you make yourself a hot drink and settle in as this is a little longer than the usual films I share but totally worth taking the time to enjoy!

Katy and Tonys Wedding Highlights17

You can see Katy and Tony’s wedding first Highlights film by following this link http://www.lovegetssweeter.co.uk/2014/07/31/a-knowsley-hall-scorcher/

To enjoy a smooth play back I’d allow the film to load fully first (press play, then pause and wait for the bar to fill..just enough time to put the kettle on!)

I’m sure you’ll agree that this looks like the sort of wedding you would want to be a guest at! It really was the perfect day and I’m so pleased Katy and Tony wanted to share this with you all!

A Romantic Abbeywood Wedding

When I met Michelle and Mike for the first time at my Burscough home I was just so excited about their wedding. Not only were they just a really, really nice couple (like, really) they were also getting married at an incredible venue called Abbeywood Estate and Gardens in Delamere forest, Cheshire! Having grown up in Nottingham and enjoyed numerous trips to Sherwood Forest I knew I’d be in my element!

The weather was on our side and stayed try the whole day. As the guys got ready on site at Abbeywood the girls stayed down the road at a local farm house and holiday cottage, Linmere Moss Farm. It always feels like you have all the time in the world getting ready in the morning but it does end up running away with you and soon I was ferrying the bridesmaids to the venue while Michelle had her make-up finished off by Hollie Sadler (turns out taxi’s in Delamere aren’t very reliable!). The guys were soon ready and getting little Alex, their son, dressed in his mini groomsman outfit. They headed over to the impressive glasshouse to greet the guests and wait nervously for the bridal party. Michelle was soon ready and opening up all her lovely gifts from her bridesmaids and her soon to be husband and then we were ushered out of the Abbeywood cottage and down through the forest towards the glasshouse for the ceremony.

As always I was drawn in to the ceremony and watching their happy faces as they said their vows and soon they were announced back down the aisle as husband and wife!

Guests were then directed to the beautiful landscaped gardens at the back of Abbeywood Estate before the couple joined them for some canapes and photos. Amy Faith then helped them sneak away from their guests so they could enjoy some couple time and capture some gorgeous photographs of just the two of them. Michelle was a pro knowing how to pose! Mike wasn’t too bad either…

Mr and Mrs Johnson were warmly welcomed by their guests as the wedding breakfast started. The menu looked mouthwatering and we had the pleasure of even having some of the soup ourselves (seriously delicious, thank you Michelle and Mike..and the staff at Abbeywood!). The meal was swiftly followed by the speeches and they were full of heart-warming and funny stories about the couple.

Then it was time for the evening guests to arrive and for the newly-weds to take to the dance floor for their cake cutting and first dance. They were then joined by their family who sang along to the Oasis track before we headed off to leave them all enjoying their evening.

This really was a gorgeous wedding. I know it’s easy to say that as all my weddings are amazing in their own way, I’m just really pleased they picked me to film it for them and just loved watching their film over and over! It really has been a pleasure!
