A Laid Back Alma Lodge Wedding Video – Stockport Wedding Videographer

Sarah is the third of the 3 Hodgkinson sisters to get married. And, the third to pick Love Gets Sweeter to be the videographer for their wedding day! But in true Hodgkinson style, it was completely different and personal to them. Instead of the grand Manchester Town Hall and pretty wedding pinks of Shelly’s wedding, or the ‘something blue’ designer shoes and autumnal styling of Stacey’s, Sarah opted for something a little more laid back and relaxed for her wedding…

A Laid Back Abel’s Harp Wedding Video

Kelly and Peter’s Abel’s Harp wedding in Shrewsbury was the perfect balance of fun and laid back. The rain held off long enough to allow them the outdoor ceremony on top of the hill (with views to die for!), they had afternoon tea planned for guests instead of the traditional wedding breakfast and even had the kids involved with fun entertainment from a magician to outdoor games and in picking which Minion made which buttonhole and corsage! Want to see…

Katie & Iain’s Thornton Hall Wedding Video

Filming weddings in the Wirral will always have a special place in my heart as it’s where Lee and I got married nearly 9 years ago. But this is all about Katie and Iain!

My assistant Paul head over to see Iain and his groomsman nearby in Birkenhead. It was a brilliant contrast of glamourous…

Best Friends – A Burscough Wedding Video

Believe it or not, some people won’t film their friends weddings. Me, I LOVE it. I get to be in all the action, blend in even more so than normal, capture really natural moments because they forget I came with a camera and get to chat to my friends as I work. I guess it helps that I love my work and love the fact that they want little ol’ me to film it for them! Well, this is the…

A English Bangladeshi Spring Wedding Video

On a gloriously sunny day I had the pleasure of being the videographer at Jennifer and Nazar’s very colourful and cultural wedding over in Churchtown. It was then on to The Bold Hotel on the famous Lord Street in Southport (famous for it’s grade listed Victorian arcade and boulevard). It’s surprisingly rare I get to do a local wedding so when Jennifer contacted me to chat about her wedding in Southport it was wonderful to already know the locations she…

She’d mentioned they’d be there all day, getting guests involved for sing-alongs and creating the epic wedding atmosphere! From the moment they wandered (excuse the pun) in to the rustic wedding tent in the grounds…
