- You’re after a wedding videographer who is as passionate and excited about your day as you are. Someone who manages to capture all those amazing and completely natural moments on the wedding day without feeling like they’re being filmed at all… That’s where I (Charlene) come in! Love Gets Sweeter specialise in creating beautiful, bespoke wedding videos that are a true reflection of you and your wedding day. Always filming with two camera operators (including Charlene herself) we capture both the bride and groom getting ready and film all the way to the first dance as standard (no hidden, last minute charges to stay later/start earlier!). Meaning I can expertly edit a film that reflects the real story of you and your day. Charlene's background is in editing. Working for years in film and television she was drawn to documentary and comedy. So, it was only natural that I am drawn to the fun and laughter at every wedding. It shows off how exciting weddings really are! Weddings can be romantic yes, but it's not all about the cheesy slow mo kisses and walks in to the sunset. It's about real moments. Real love. Marrying your best friend! After creating her own wedding film she realised how her skills, and experience as a bride too, could not only help create truly beautiful and bespoke wedding videos for other couples it could also prove useful helping out on the day to ensure everything runs perfectly! Head over to our website to see real weddings, both in highlight form and our special feature films that include audio captured on the day like vows and speeches. Based in Burscough, Lancashire we film all over the UK though mainly cover local areas like Liverpool, Manchester, Cheshire and Staffordshire.

What is your most memorable wedding?
I have so many! In my first year the most memorable was Cristina and Mp's up in Aviemore, Scottish Highlands. After our epic 6.5 hour drive and wonderful overnight stay looking at the snow topped mountains I arrived to a perfectly peaceful bridal prep at the Bride's parents. My assistant however had a different story to tell which involved semi naked men, a boozy cake and lots of silliness. It's why when it came to the edit one song screamed out to me...you have to watch the film to know what I mean but it is perfect for showing off how different they both are yet how perfectly suited they are too! https://lovegetssweeter.co.uk/its-an-oh-so-quiet-anniversary/ I do remember all the fun stuff. The laughter, the cheeky bum squeezes and being 'in' on the jokes during the morning. It's what makes wedding so personal and real. I LOVE everything about them!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Personal, modern, fun, real
What about your business are you most proud of?
The personal approach filled with passion for my work! It's what makes me so different from everyone else because I put so much of myself in to every aspect of the business, from that first email right through to designed and creating the final wedding DVD.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Have the wedding you want. Trying to please everyone can sometimes create more stress and take away the excitement of planning the wedding you want. Planning can be fun if you ignore all the politics and stick together to have a wedding day you'll both love!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Anything personal is what can make a wedding. From cute childhood photos for place names (one bride and groom did that for every single guest and it was a real talking point!) to writing their own vows (like we did for our wedding, always gets me emotional!)....there's so many opportunities to make your wedding day your own.
What is the most exciting thing you have caught on camera?
Whatever I manage to capture that doesn't quite make the highlights film gets saved for the Outtakes! On our own wedding DVD that proved to be the most popular because you forget how funny the day actually is, with people doing silly things and forgetting your there to fluffing the speeches or nearly knocking the cake over...
What is your favourite soundtrack to put to a wedding video?
Every wedding has it's own soundtrack, I think that's what makes it such a personal choice! I always ask for suggestions but it's not until I've lived the day myself and watched it unfold in front of my camera that I know what track will work perfectly. It needs to set the mood for the day, bring those emotions (be it happy/excited/fun/romantic/heart-warming/cute/laid-back) flooding back and be that song that will always remind them of their amazing day...
Describe how you got into videography.
I worked in film and TV so it was only right I had my own wedding filmed. I used my contacts and had some professional cameramen friends help out so I could edit it myself. It took a while but once I'd finished it, wowed my husband (who was anti wedding video) as well as our family and friends I was soon getting people asking if I could do theirs.
