"As we neared the arrival of our youngest daughter, my husband and I started to think about how we’d like to capture our early memories of her – after all babies change almost by the minute and as new parents you sometimes feel you’ve forgotten those early days. A friend suggested a video, and having seen some of the work by Charlene at LoveGetsSweeter, I approached her to see if it was something she would consider doing for us.

I truly love creating personal, fun and unique wedding films for every couple that book me as their wedding videographer.

I’m so proud of every film I create that after the couple have shown it off to their family and friends I can’t wait 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, a handful of personal projects and the all important wedding tips that I pick up along the way!

My 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 whole wedding)!

If you haven’t already checked out my About Me page (and why not?) my name’s 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 I do then get in touch!

Being A Recommended Supplier – Wedding Videographer

Bride and groom being showered in bright confetti outside conall hall in stoke on trent for the wedding video

It is always the BEST FEELING EVER to have yourself added to a list that’s titled ‘recommended suppliers’ at a fabulous wedding venue I’ve LOVED working at. I’d say it’s up there with a handwritten thank you card (or that first sip of a perfectly brewed fancy tea, or bite of a homemade cake…)! And not one I’ve had to beg to be on or even pay to be on (yes that’s a thing, be wary) but to be personally…

Father’s Day Family Film

Father’s Day is a wonderful time (excuse) to celebrate the awesome Daddies and I love to do something personal for Lee. Whether it’s a handmade card (and this year Paisley has actually helped do it, no faking a scribble signature haha) or a little crafty thing we’ve made together. Even a homemade bake, Paisley LOVES baking. Every year I put a bit of pressure on myself to do a little film to celebrate. Usually it’s a family film of some…

Celebrating a Special Hillbark Hotel Wedding Video

Yesterday was our 7th wedding anniversary. Bronze I believe, though we didn’t have a clue what to buy so took a day off instead to celebrate! 7 years ago today I was waking up in our room at The Hillbark Hotel married (and realising I’d left my bra at the hotel I got ready in so had to wear the signed Liverpool shirt I gave my husband the day before and hold my arms in strategic places so no-one realised…).…
