Annabelle and James’s Wirral Wedding

Thornton Manor in Thornton Hough (Wirral) has proven to be a very popular North West wedding venue over the years for me and it’s so easy to see why! Annabelle and James were planning their wedding in the Wirral from London and would try and squeeze in all their planning meetings during their wedding visits up north. All the effort paid off as it really was a beautiful wedding and the little touches really did make the difference… [reveal heading=”%image%…

A Chic City Wedding in Liverpool

Anna and Lee booked me after a very unusual way of finding me…Anna’s Dad bumped in to my assistant filming in Sefton Park in Liverpool, a long conversation about camera’s led to the question about filming his daughters wedding and then the next minute I had the pleasure of chatting to him over the phone arranging a time to meet his lovely daughter and future son-in-law to discuss their fabulous city wedding!

A Modern Grey Thornton Hall Wedding Video

This bride, Clare, taught my husband and I our very own first dance to that favourite song of ours…Love Gets Sweeter (you can see bits of it at the end of our feature film). It made my day when she got in touch to tell me she was getting married herself over in Walton then on to Thornton Hall Hotel in the Wirral and would love to get it filmed. She just needed to persuade Chris (her husband to be)…

A Bright Portmeirion Wedding

When I had the pleasure of officially adding this Portmeirion wedding to my diary I honestly couldn’t have dreamt of filming such an amazing wedding. Not only was the setting of Portmeirion more like a picturesque film set (it had been a TV set for The Prisoner which was well before my time so that would explain it’s ‘set’ like qualities) but the couple were such delightful company and at times I forgot I was working! Below are a few…

A Mitton Hall Heatwave Wedding

When Caroline and Ian picked tropical colours for their colour scheme and gorgeous wedding flowers I don’t think they thought for one second that they’d have the tropical temperatures to match! Caroline and Ian said from the day they booked me that their wedding video was really important to them and they just loved the idea of having something that really brought all the fun memories from the day flooding back. Their film certainly does that… [reveal heading=”%image% Click here…

Caroline Castigliano and Lace Bridal

When I was asked if I fancied filming an event showcasing Caroline Castigliano’s new 2014 collection (thank you Martin Hambleton for putting me forward) I nearly fell off my chair! I have admired her stunning gowns since I was a young girl, staring up at her Nottingham boutiques window all those years ago. Sadly on my own wedding day I couldn’t stretch the budget enough to own my own but boy did this make up for it (all I need…

A Sunny Manchester Wedding Video

a still from the wedding video of the Bride and Groom bright pink confetti shot Deanwater Hotel Manchester Stockport Cheshire wedding

Manchester isn’t known for it’s sunshine, in fact it’s quite the opposite, so I was super excited to see the sun shine brightly in the bright blue sky as I travelled to meet Shelly (the bride) who was getting ready at The MacDonald Manchester Hotel and Spa to video her wedding in Manchester Town Hall. Shelly and Chris said their vows at the stunning Manchester Town Hall. This was my first time inside this historical building right in the heart…

A Upper House Spring Wedding

In April I had the pleasure of filming Sarah and Scott’s wedding at The Upper House in Balaston, Stoke on Trent. A venue that is full of history and character and the perfect setting for a stylish wedding. I also had the pleasure of working with the ever so talented Phoebe and Amy of Flossy and Leigh fame. I know they’re super talented and amazing because I have had the honour of having my very own Flossy and Leigh makeover…

Live, Love, Laughter were the words used by this Bride and Groom as a theme to their day and it really was a wedding filled with these three things.

A Inglewood Manor Military Wedding Video

So, Day 3 of my Christmas countdown…it’s going far too fast! I thought I’d share another beautiful wedding with you and this time it’s the wedding of Anna and Lee over in the Wirral at Inglewood Manor. My favourite line from this wedding came from Anna’s Mum… “Man up, I thought you were a Marine” I feel so honoured to have been asked to film their wedding because I filmed Anna’s sister’s wedding back in 2011 (if you haven’t see…

Lindsay and Liam LOVED the fun elements I add to wedding edits, especially my Scottish Highlands favourite cut to Bjork (if you haven’t seen that yet you HAVE to, watch it here). They knew they wanted something very ‘them’ and I was the wedding videographer to help them achieve that! We already had some amazing, upbeat song choices in mind so I had visions of a wedding filled with laughter but the dance moves really exceeded my expectations! I never…

Evie and Jamie at Chapter Photography wanted us to have some images that we’d love after finding out all about our awful experience with our wedding photographer. We didn’t just want any old pictures in any random place though. We wanted professional wedding photos at our stunning wedding venue in the Wirral, The Hillbark Hotel! They didn’t disappoint and we…

Vintage Inspired Liverpool Athenaeum Wedding

I’ll admit, I was filled with excited nerves when Rachel booked us to film her wedding at the stunning Athenaeum in Liverpool city centre. The main reason was because it was actually her Mum who wanted to book us after meeting us at a Hard Days Night wedding fair in Liverpool and Rachel really wasn’t sure if a wedding video was something she would want to watch! I’m used to trying to sway peoples initial perceptions and ideas on wedding…

The Wirral really is one of the BEST places in the Northwest (that and Liverpool, and the Lakes…and Lancashire…I just love the North really haha). We were actually lucky enough to get married in the Wirral ourselves, at the historical Hillbark Hotel in Frankby (you can see my Wirral wedding video here)! But enough about me… I’ve been eager to share this wedding with you as it really is beautiful, gorgeous and romantic in so many ways and I’m pretty…

A Classic Chester Grosvenor Wedding Video

Bride wearing Stewart Parvin and Groom walk out holding hands and being showered in natural Confetti filmed outside The Chester Grosvenor Hotel and Spa by Love Gets Sweeter wedding videography in Cheshire

As silly as this sounds, I’ve always wandered by the Chester Grosvenor and wanted to take a look inside but felt it looked far too posh for me to strut in with my Levi’s and sweatshirt! It’s such a beautiful building and iconic building in the centre of Chester and looks so luxurious as you get a glimpse through the door. My dream finally came true after Charlotte spotted me in Bride magazine and came to meet me to discuss…
