Emma and Stu Wedding Invite

Hi!!!

As you know, Stu and I are getting married rather soon 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 shoot everyone enjoying the day, singing, dancing and generally having a great time to the song ‘Jump Around’ by House of Pain

Here is the song we’ve chosen for you to get familiar with, it is before the time of Music Videos but you’ll get the idea…

How this works is, the guys will be equipped with lyrics and speakers on the day, and they’ll be looking for volunteers to mime along to a couple of lines from the song on camera, which they’ll then turn into a music video of the wedding day. Don’t worry too much about learning the lyrics as they will 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.

If you’re really up for it, feel free to learn a line or two from the song (or even the whole thing)…

The lyrics are included on that version so that if you want to you can rehearse and remember them to perfection! Alternatively there is a link to the lyrics here too – House Of Pain ‘Jump Around’
(The lyrics are also shown at the bottom of this 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…


Nickos and Georgina – Let’s Get It Started


Chelsea and Buzz – On The Floor

 

So……..

  • 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!

 

Love

Emma and Stu

PPS Here are those lyrics…

House Of Pain ‘Jump Around’

Pack it up, pack it in
Let me begin
I came to win
Battle me that’s a sin
I won’t tear the sack up
Punk you’d better back up
Try and play the role and the whole crew will act up
Get up, stand up, come on!
Come on, throw your hands up
If you’ve got the feeling jump across the ceiling
Muggs is a funk fest, someone’s talking junk
Yo, I’ll bust em in the eye
And then I’ll take the punks home
Feel it, funk it
Amps it are junking
And I got more rhymes than there’s cops that are dunking
Donuts shop
Sure ’nuff I got props from the kids on the Hill
Plus my mom and my pops

[Chorus]

I came to get down [2x]
So get out your seats and jump around
Jump around [3x]
Jump up Jump up and get down.
Jump [18x]
I’ll serve your ass like John MacEnroe
If your steps up, I’m smacking the ho
Word to your moms I came to drop bombs
I got more rhymes than the bible’s got psalms
And just like the Prodigal Son I’ve returned
Anyone stepping to me you’ll get burned
Cause I got lyrics and you ain’t got none
So if you come to battle bring a shotgun
But if you do you’re a fool, cause I duel to the death
Try and step to me you’ll take your last breath
I gots the skill, come get your fill
Cause when I shoot ta give, I shoot to kill

[Chorus]

I’m the cream of the crop, I rise to the top
I never eat a pig cause a pig is a cop
Or better yet a terminator
Like Arnold Schwarzenegger
Try’n to play me out like as if my name was Sega
But I ain’t going out like no punk bitch
Get used to one style and you know I might switch
It up up and around, then buck buck you down
Put out your head then you wake up in the Dawn of the Dead
I’m coming to get ya, coming to get ya
Spitting out lyrics homie I’ll wet ya

[Chorus]
Jump [32x]

Yo, this is dedicated
To Joe, da flava, Dakota
Grag yo bozac, punk
