Blog

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!

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. Here I am with my handsome husband and one of my 2014 bride and grooms (who just happen to be my sister in law and brother in law!).

What do you think? Pretty special huh?

I want to just take the time to say a huge thank you to everyone for their love and support this year, and that includes both my wonderful bride and grooms as well as all you talented wedding suppliers! Head over to the blog to catch up on any wedding films you’ve yet to watch!

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!

Click here to read more and see their wedding highlights film

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!

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!

Michelle and Mikes Wedding13

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!

A Glam Oldham Wedding

I have filmed a wedding at The Saddleworth Hotel near Oldham before (you can see Kate and William’s wedding here) but this time the lovely couple were saying their vows in their local church, Thornham St James before heading in to the moors to their reception venue. Complete with a stunning wedding dress, a LOT of luxury sports cars and a glamorous wedding reception…

Samantha and Adams Wedding18

Click here to read more and see their wedding highlights film

I met Samantha and Adam at The Wedding Fairs North West show at Event City and was so pleased when they popped back over and asked me to save their date. Soon we were finalising all their wedding plans for the big day and I was really looking forward to filming the day itself…

The day didn’t start great with weather reports informing us of heavy rain showers for most of the day. It didn’t stop the girls from dressing all summery and enjoying some fruit and champagne while getting their hair and make-up done. The boys were super keen and pretty much dressed when Lee arrived to film them so they just waited for the rest of the Ushers to turn up with their cars to get them to the church on time…

The rain didn’t falter and so guests hurried inside the church to await the arrival of the bridal party. The Groom was either super relaxed or hiding his nerves well as he chatted with his best man at the front of the church (although I did need to come to the rescue with a few tissues to mop their brows and clammy hands…). Samantha was soon being helped out of her Rolls Royce and all the bridesmaids and drivers helped get her to the church door without her dress even faintly brushing the ground.

The service was lovely to watch, as well as funny at times when Adam was a little eager with his lines, and soon they were pronounced husband and wife and whisked away in The Saddleworth Hotel’s Rolls to enjoy a scenic drive of the Castleshaw Valley. Thankfully the rain clouds had lifted and the couple arrived to a slightly drier reception…

After mingling with guests and enjoying some canapes their photographers, Pixies in the Cellar, got everyone outside to do a few formal family group shots before sneaking them off to have a little couples shoot. They clearly enjoyed having the time alone and couldn’t stop stealing a few kisses, though it’s always nice like that as they need no direction from the photographer to look all ‘in love’!

Samantha and Adams Wedding11

The couple were then welcomed in to the wedding breakfast with loud cheers before tucking in to their 3 course meal. Speeches took place after the food and the Father of the Bride even had everyone standing and singing along to one of their favourite songs.

Before we knew it it was time for the first dance and they’d picked the ever so gorgeous KCi & JoJo (I used to LOVE this at college). Guests soon joined in and we nipped around filming some of the dance moves on show…

A Knowsley Hall Scorcher

Wow. Just wow. Katy and Tony’s wedding day over in the Wirral and Merseyside was one of my favourites to be a part of. I honestly felt so honoured to be there capturing the day as it unfolded and was made to feel like a dear friend by all of the lovely wedding party.

Katy and Tonys Wedding Highlights20

Click here to read more and see their wedding highlights film

I had met Katy and her lovely Bridesmaid at The Wedding Fair’s North West show in Manchester (she’d initially spoke to my Husband, who somehow managed to put his foot in it in the most hilarious manner but that’s another story…) and when she came back to confirm she wanted to book me I was over the moon! Not only was it at a venue I’ve always wanted to film at, the magnificent Knowsley Hall, but she was also such a sweetheart and had an amazing team of suppliers already in place it was like my perfect wedding!

As we’d all hoped, the day started with glorious sunshine and everyone was in high spirits because of it. I started by filming Katy having her make-up and hair perfected by Phoebe at Flossy & Leigh while Lee arrived at the chaos at the boys house (turns out all the skills Lee has picked up over the years at weddings certainly paid off here as Tony need lots of help with all those wedding-y things like ties and button holes!). They’d held off on opening gifts until we arrived as I’m so glad they did as their reactions were priceless!

Soon everyone was getting dressed at the girls house while the boys piled in to their wedding cars to head to the church. Katy wowed everyone as she stepped out on to the stairs to show off her finished bridal look and even her Dad was lost for words, she looked incredible!

We were soon at the church and gasps could be heard all round as Katy started her walk down the aisle. Tony was obviously impressed and stood with his mouth open for most of it! The adorable couple stole little glances throughout the ceremony and they didn’t stop smiling throughout, it really is so lovely to watch when couples are just soooo in love like that.

Mr and Mrs McWilliam were then announced to their guests as they made their walk down the aisle as husband and wife in to the glorious sunshine that awaited them outside. Guests showered them with confetti before making the journey over Knowsley Hall to await the arrival of the bride and groom. They were welcomed by the soulful tones of the incredible Sense of Sound choir and some refreshing welcome drinks and spent the next hour enjoying the sunshine in the gardens of Knowsley Hall.

Even I was stopped in my tracks as I walked in to the reception room to see all the wedding breakfast set up after some amazing styling by Red Floral Architecture. It really is an amazing space and takes your breath away. The guests were the same as they made their way to their seats. Katy and Tony were announced in to the room through the huge wooden doors and danced their way to the top table. After enjoying a sumptuous meal guests were then entertained with 3 brilliant wedding speeches. I still laugh when I think of Tony telling the story of his Mum’s cat…I think if I can edit it down then that will have to be in their feature film!

Flossy & Leigh then worked their magic and gave Katy a whole new evening look before she took to the dancefloor with her new husband. They danced to our wedding song and if you listen closely to my husband’s camera during the filming of the first dance you can even hear him singing away to One Day Like This…

An Amazing Aberdeenshire Wedding

Sarah and Doug were married at the historic Drum Castle in Drumoak, Aberdeen & Grampian, and held their wedding reception at The Palm Court Hotel, Aberdeen.

Sarah and Dougs Wedding Highlights13.1 watermarked

Click here to read more and see their wedding highlights film

I’ve always been a huge fan of Scotland ever since my first ever wedding in the Scottish Highlands way back in 2010 (you can see that wedding film here). When Sarah called me I was instantly giddy with excitement. I was so pleased when she confirmed she wanted to book and spent the next few months chatting over email about all the lovely plans they had for their wedding day.

We enjoyed an amazingly relaxed journey from sunny Lancashire up to Aberdeen the night before the wedding and awoke to a traditional Scottish breakfast at the hotel. I was soon heading over to the coast to film Sarah and her girls getting ready and even helping out with making perfect bows on the flower girls dresses and even helping with her Uncles kilt…

The guys even got a little bit of help and my husband stepped in to iron shirts and show them a good trick to open a beer bottle without a bottle opener…

Sarah and Dougs Wedding 4

We were soon all arriving at Drum Castle (some a bit later than others so thank god the Bride was running a little late too) and guests packed in to the tiny little chapel to await the bridal party. The rain held back just enough to allow the bride to arrive in style in her vintage VW camper van before they made the short walk up the winding path to the chapel. The intimate ceremony was full of lovely moments, including a really sweet reading from one of their daughters before the couple were pronounced husband and wife to a rapturous applause.

Family group photos took place on the castle lawns as they enjoyed champagne and strawberries before Sarah and Doug headed up the castle tower to get some romantic photographs. Kris, the co-ordinator at Drum, informed us that they were the first bride and groom to be up there!

Guests were treated to the sound of bagpipes as they arrived at The Palm Court Hotel before they gathered around to cheer the arrival of the happy couple. Speeches were before the meal and had everyone in stitches, including us, though I’m not sure the Groom was too happy about all the stories the Best Men shared!
