Love Gets Sweeter Wedding Films will celebrate 7 years of creating beautiful wedding films (or wedding videos as some like to call them) this year.

Still sounds crazy. 7 years! Am I getting old…?

So what’s new for Love Gets Sweeter in 2017?

This year looks like one of the best yet with some very excited newly engaged couples booked in and, as always, some who came to us through recommendations (which I LOVE)!

We’re over in Corwen (Wales), Stone, Cheshire and Lancashire so far and there’s still a little room for a few more weddings to get booked in (contact me here!)

I still remember the nervous excitement of filming my first ever wedding in Cheshire and I still get those little excited bubbles before every wedding even 7 years on! My confidence has grown, style evolved and I’m inspired by every beautiful wedding I shoot.

Looking back I can see I knew what to look for and how to tell their story even though the wedding world was very new to me. I think the background in editing and being a newlywed myself helped!

Looking back over my older weddings confirm they’ve helped me perfect my style. Although they may look a little different to what I produce now they still tell a beautiful story. They may have dated in the sense of technologies changing but I feel they are as beautiful as the day I edited them.

Here’s the first wedding I had the honour of filming, Emma and Daniel’s wedding in Altrincham. Emma wore a stunning Kimono and carried a delicate bouquet of orchids, another wedding classic that never seems to date!

7 years seems a long time. Reminds me that this year we will be celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary too (broze, pottery, linen or lace for that one…best get thinking). I’ve changed a lot myself in that time, even my hair has changed quite dramatically…

Anyway, fast forward 7 years to my most recent wedding at Eaves Hall. A traditional and stunning wedding featuring classic styling, lots of stunning white and a gorgeous Bride and Groom. Experience and new skills make for perfectly honed shots, being able to anticipate moments during a fast paced wedding day and letting the story unfold in front of me.

Capturing the laughter, the fun and excitement all alongside the delightful romance of it all makes Love Gets Sweeter stand out from other wedding films. One of my Bride’s says it best…

“The films stood out from the usual, soppy, cliched, trying too hard to be romantic films.

I could tell from Charlene’s films that she understands love isn’t just about a couple wandering around a pretty garden holding hands and smooching.

Love is giggling with your best friend, a cheeky hug with your Mum, a goofy wave to your husband to be, a rude gesture from the Best Man, spending the day laughing with your most beloved family and friends.

I felt all of the films by Love Gets Sweeter captured this so well, they all seemed so individual to each couple.

I couldn’t have gone anywhere else.”

This. I adore looking for the romance during your wedding but it’s those moments of delight, laughter and maybe the occasional cheeky kiss or bum squeeze that make me smile!

Ooh and 2017 isn’t all about weddings either. I have something very exciting in store for all my past couples this year, some of you may already have spotted the sneak peeks around my Facebook and Instagram pages. It involves me, my camera and spending a bit of time with your family…
