We Want Youuuuuu!

As you know, we are getting married on next Saturday (Woooooop) and we can’t wait to see you there!!

What you probably don’t know is, we have invited the team from Music Wedding Videos to film everyone enjoying the day, singing, dancing and generally having a great time to ‘I Want You’ by Cee Lo Green.

Here is the song we’ve chosen for you to get familiar with …

How this works is, the guys will be equipped with printed lyrics and speakers on the day; they’ll be looking for volunteers to sing along to a couple of lines from the track on camera. They’ll then turn the footage into a music video of the wedding day. Don’t worry too much about learning all the words as we mentioned they’ll have some printed on the day and after playing a short section of the song a couple of times you’ll soon pick it up.

You’ll have a few go’s at getting it right, and they’re pretty good at editing to make you look awesome. Your singing voice doesn’t matter either because they’re not going to use the audio – the real song will be played over the video footage of you singing along.

The lyrics are included at the bottom of the page

How up for it are you?

Mad for it!

OK, so you fancy yourself as a bit of a performer or a pop-star in another life?

Here’s what you can do:

  • Watch the video
  • Learn the lyrics
  • Practice in front of the mirror
  • Choreograph a dance routine
  • Get together with some like-minded guests to do something as a group

We are looking for people to (willingly) come forward beforehand to be given specific lines to learn, and we will then forward everyone their own lyrics to perfect 🙂 If any of you do want to perform something special, please let us know or contact the MWV guys at info@musicweddingvideos.com so they can plan it into the shoot.

Happy to get involved on the day

Here’s what we recommend:

  • Watch the video
  • Try to learn at least one or two lines from the song
  • Grab the MWV guys on the day and let them know you want to get involved

A little bit camera-shy

We realise some people either don’t feel super comfortable in front of cameras, especially video cameras. Don’t worry – the MWV guys are very sensitive to this and won’t force you to get involved if you don’t feel comfortable. But if it’s not too painful, we do hope you can at least give us a smile or a wave so that we can remember you on our special video. And remember – if it’s your singing voice you’re worried about, they don’t actually use that in the final video – you’re just miming along to the real song. Here’s what we recommend:

  • Don’t worry too much about learning the lyrics
  • On the day, see if you’re in the right mood. If not, just let the MWV guys know if you’d prefer to just be an ‘extra’ without performing, or if you don’t want to be in the video at all.

We think this is a really fun way to record and re-live our big day for years to come and hope you’ll all get involved in some way.

Still not sure how this works?

Here are a couple of examples of a finished video from previous weddings once they have been edited and effects have been put on…

Hayley and Ian – That Vibe

Sam and Emma – Happy

Claire and Kev – Uptown Funk


  • Glamorous couple – Check
  • Beautiful Location – Check
  • Awesome dancing and singing – that’s where you come in

Let’s make this a wedding video to remember!


Cheryl and Duncan

PPS Here are those lyrics…
Hey Hey Hey Hey…
I want you [x2]

Hey, I love the night life
Yes I do it’s so much fun
And before you know it
Ah here comes the sun
Sweetheart it’s been real, but…
The thrill is gone

Silence is like a spirit
That picked my house to haunt
But I know it’s there so I’m nonchalant
Now the question is just what do I want

And I want you to run away with me and experience something new
Anything you’ve already done just won’t do
I want you
And I want you to genuinely and sincerely want me too
You can believe in my baby
Don’t be cruel
‘Cause I want you

Would a trip to a remote island ease your mind
Oh you look like a solitaire in the sunshine
I like her ’cause she’s fun
She’s fearless
She’s a friend of mine

Oh I’m not trying to say that you need any help
You can have anything you want with your bad self
I like her ’cause she’s smart
But she’s still sexy
She is somethin’ else

That’s why I want you to run away with me and experience something new
Anything you’ve already done just won’t do
I want you
And I want you to genuinely and sincerely want me too
You can believe in my baby, don’t be cruel
‘Cause I want you

Oh one rarely finds a lady
That happens to be three times the lady
God is good
But he took his time when he designed you baby
That’s why I want you

Oh I’ll even quit my job
Lovin’ you, I’ll make it my job
Thank you Lord, thank you lord
This is it
My god!
That’s why I want you

[Fades out to Chorus]
