Videographer details – and any thoughts for other couples about having a wedding video?

Love gets sweeter – Charlene was the most fantastic person to have involved in our day. So helpful from start to finish and couldn’t recommend her enough. So very happy that she was so wonderful that everyone adored her – she will be a part of my best friends wedding next year we can’t wait to see her again!

I hope you enjoy this heartwarming guest article by Love Gets Sweeter

During this bizarre time we find ourselves in, we are realising how special it is to stay connected with our family and friends. Trying our best to catch up with them over video calls, family zoom quizzes and online parties, and other cool ways to keep ourselves sane and connected. We are really getting creative in how we keep in touch with our loved ones during our time of lockdown and self isolation (who ever thought those would be words I’d write!?)

I’m a wedding videographer in Lancashire and have an energetic 5 year old called Paisley. I now find myself essentially ‘out of work’ until further notice and homeschooling.

I miss weddings. I hated school. It’s an odd combination right now!

But then something wonderful has already come out of this.

A guest article by Lancashire wedding videographer Love Gets Sweeter

It’s true that the biggest regret of newlyweds is NOT having a wedding video. (According to Bridebook 75% of couples go on to regret it)!

Not investing in a professional wedding videographer is the no.1 regret of so many couples, but why?

So yes, I (Charlene) am a wedding videographer and this may seem like a totally biased post so let me share my personal experience too.

We nearly didn’t have a wedding video. We were weeks away and I was getting ever so nervous that we would go on to regret not having our very own wedding video.

My husband, like a lot of us, was very anti wedding video. His comparison was it being similar to a Peter Andre ITV2 documentary having cameras follow us around and annoying all the guests.

For me it was genuinely hating hearing and seeing myself on screen. I hate my voice! BUT, having seen the value in old home movies I hoped I could essentially get over myself so we could have our very own home movie!

Happy Sunday, you wonderful human. I’m snuggling into a cosy blanket this morning – it’s freezing out there and I’m taking a little me time to relax this weekend. But I’m excited because I have two fabulous features to share with you today. It’s pretty much a blog takeover, as our features today are all about Love Gets Sweeter – my friend Charlene has been making beautiful wedding videos for years and I’m thrilled to welcome Love Gets Sweeter to the English Wedding Blog. I’ll let the lovely lady introduce herself to you! Have a wonderful Sunday!

If you’re new to wedding blogs, and let’s face it, to planning weddings, I’m here to help! I’ve been around weddings for over a decade now, so I try not to forget that most of us are new to it all… you’re only going to be planning this wedding once, right? And any help or advice will be welcome… which is why we made The English Wedding Directory. This is where you can find all of our favourite wedding suppliers. Our Facebook page is updated with new vendors when they join us, and the Directory is full of brilliant photographers, stationers, florists, stylists… everything you might need for the wedding of your dreams!

Browse the English Wedding Directory here. It’s divided into different wedding supplier types from hair and make up artists through calligraphers, entertainment and wedding photographers. Choose your category and dive in – each listing you see goes directly to the supplier’s website. (I don’t like faffing either! You want to see what they do – so we send you straight to them 🙂

Hello, and happy Wednesday to you! I have a beautifully elegant English wedding to share with you today – Annabelle and James were married at St Joseph’s church in Blundellsands and chose Thornton Manor for their wedding reception. They’d travelled from London for their wedding in the north west, which kind of proves how desirable Thornton Manor is as a top class wedding venue! Worth a journey… and then some! Their day is elegantly styled with just a few, but such beautiful details and special touches: a white bouquet, pale gold bridesmaids’ dresses and ties. You really don’t need more than this for such a stunning venue!

I’m sat here writing today’s wedding blog with a little tear in my eye. Wedding films move me – they do! The nervous moments as a groom waits for his bride get me every time! And then he reaches towards her and has to wipe away a tear… it’s magical, and so lovely. So – a warning: Davina and Dave will make you cry! Enjoy their Sheffield wedding highlights film by Love Gets Sweeter and read Davina’s beautifully written wedding story below (I laughed out loud at Dave and the dolphin trainer!)

Dave and Davina: a beautiful Sheffield wedding blog

When Dave proposed after 5 years together I knew that we weren’t going to have a long engagement and eagerly got stuck into planning our big day. Although we had no idea where we wanted to get married we knew that it had to be big enough for our family and friends without being cold and uninviting.
