My names Charlene and, as well as filming your day, I also edit every single film for that added personal touch.

A Classic West Tower Wedding

Helen and David’s classic red and white wedding at Dalton Church, followed by a reception at West Tower in Aughton (near Ormskirk) really was a pleasure to be part of. The day started with the girls getting ready together while the dark clouds loomed overhead and threatened rain. The rain arrived soon enough but it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits. They say it brings luck on a wedding day as after all a wet knot is harder to untie than a dry knot…

The guys were getting ready at home with all the children which sounded a little more chaotic than it actually was but it did make the girls morning seem super chilled!

The rain still poured down as guests started to arrive at Dalton Church. The flower girls made the most of the space and their cute dresses by spinning around and making us all dizzy watching them. As David waited for his bride she was enjoying a shot of whiskey with her maids and Dad before they got in their awaiting Taxi. As a surprise though Helen took a little detour to meet up with her horse drawn carriage on the way to the church, it’s safe to say everyone was completely surprised and enjoyed the ride to the church even in the rain.

The ceremony was lovely and relaxed, even the children enjoyed watching in-between picking up the scattered petals and skipping around the church. As they were announced as husband and wife they made their way outside ready to be showered in confetti as thankfully the rain had given them a little break.

Helen and David made their way back to their reception venue, West Tower with the kids and guests enjoyed drinks in the cosy bar before heading back up to the wedding breakfast room for some yummy food and the all important wedding speeches. We even had a little performance from the Flower girls singing a song from Disney’s Frozen alongside Simon Brown, The Piano Man! Their photographer, Ian MacMichael, managed to sneak them outside as the sun was setting and the rain had subsided to get some cute couple portraits before heading back inside.

And then it was time for not only the first dance as husband and wife but also a very special dance for Helen and her Dad. So cute watching a Father and Daughter dance, makes my heart melt. Guests were also treated to some amazing Ice Cream by Daresbury Ice Cream-the sorbet was delicious!

A Mere Court Cheshire Wedding

The day may have started with heavy rain but the clouds swiftly cleared, making way for glorious sunshine at Sarah and Peter’s Mere Court Hotel wedding. I have had the pleasure of filming here a couple of times before and so I was really looking forward to the day ahead as I made my way from Lancashire over to Cheshire.

Sarah and Peters Wedding16

Sarah and Peter found me at the Event City’s ‘The North West Wedding Fair’ (which we are attending again this September) and I knew from chatting to Sarah that day that I’d LOVE filming their wedding day.

As I said earlier it may have started with rain but we were soon seeing the sun shine through the bedroom windows at Mere Court Hotel as the girls got themselves ready. Michelle Sisson was on hand for their professional hair and make-up and she did an amazing job. I love working with Michelle and it was lovely to have a fellow Mummy there to share her coping stories of having a baby and dealing with wedding season! We were soon moving over to the bridal suite to get Sarah in to her stunning bridal gown and Dad entertained us all by showing off his look, complete with wedding veil! Peter got himself dressed in to his tradition Scottish wedding attire and was soon making his way over to Mere Court to enjoy a drink or two with his friends and family.

The ceremony was soon full of excited guests and Sarah made her way down the aisle to her handsome groom. It got a little emotional from the moment they saw each other and they shared a few happy tears and lots of laughter as they exchanged vows and rings. Peter’s sister sang beautifully while they signed the register and they were soon walking back down the aisle as husband and wife!

As the sun was now shining guests were ushered outside for some group photographs on the lawns. Cat and Suzanne from CT Images were swifty getting everyone organised before we sneaked off to get some gorgeous photos of just the bride and groom (also known as couple portraits).

It was soon time for the wedding breakfast and those all important speeches. I loved how personal they were, no obvious sign of Google helping out here, and when Sarah gave her wedding bouquet to a gorgeous couple celebrating 65 years of being married the same year I actually got a little emotional myself!

A May Eaves Hall Wedding

Sarah and Stuart found me thanks to their talented wedding photographer, Lottie Designs, recommending me. They planned to get married at Eaves Hall in the Ribble Valley and as soon as I got the enquiry I had everything crossed they’d book me as they sounded so lovely and I knew it would be fun working with Lottie!

Sarah and Stuarts Wedding20

I arrived to a flurry of activity at the bride’s house as the hair and make-up A-team that is Flossy and Leigh were there working their magic. I always love this part, it brings out the really girly side in me and Phoebe from Flossy and Leigh even treated me to a dab of sparkle on my eye lids too! The girls were soon looking even more gorgeous and getting themselves in to their wedding outfits. Sarah looked absolutely stunning and soon had Mum and Dad in tears once she revealed her final bridal look.

Over and the Grooms it was the usual with laid back guys trying to get organised. I love seeing this part after the wedding and my couples say the same, it’s great being able to see what each other were up to on the morning as it goes by in such a blur! They were soon packed up and on their way to Eaves Hall where eager guests were there to greet them. A few drinks were had to calm the nerves while they waited for the bridal party.

The ceremony was perfect. The officiant was actually the same gentleman who did my sister in laws wedding and he puts lots of effort in to making the ceremony really personal. Poor Stuart did stumble over one of his lines and had everyone laughing that it was the one about being loyal! They were soon pronounced as husband and wife and made their way back down the aisle to the two glasses of champers waiting for them. Lottie soon rounded everyone up for some fun group photos before we disappeared in to the gardens to get some gorgeous couple portraits.

Stuart was super nervous about his speech so they decided to let him do his before the meal and then Dad and the Best Man had the pleasure of doing theirs after. I loved hearing all the stories of how they met when they were younger and the Best Man did a great job of poking fun at the Groom but also saying some really sweet things about their strong friendship.

The evening was soon in full swing and the closet Taylor Swift fan that is Stuart was caught singing away to one of his favourite tracks. The dancefloor was full as soon as they were asked to join the bride and groom on the dance floor and we were sad to leave as it seemed the party was only really getting started…

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 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.

KarenandMike st audries wedding somerset

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…

Hannah and Trevors Wedding18

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!


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.
