WEDDING OF THE YEAR 2013!

dam and karen

As you know, Damian and I are getting married over this festive period 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 the song ‘Starships’ by Nicky Minaj

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

How this works is, the guys will be equipped with printed lyrics and speakers on the day; they’ll be looking for volunteers to singalong 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 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.

WE MUST TELL YOU, THERE WILL BE A GREEN SCREEN ROOM SO WE CAN FULLY TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE EFFECTS. PLEASE GO IN THERE EVEN FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES!

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, if you want to, you can rehearse them to perfection! Alternatively there is a link to the lyrics here too – http://www.directlyrics.com/nicki-minaj-starships-lyrics.html
(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…

Alison and James – Dance With Me (Tonight) by Olly Murs

Chelsea and Buzz – On The Floor by J-Lo

 

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

Karen and Damien

PPS Here are those lyrics…

“Starships”

Let’s go to the beach, each
Let’s go get away
They say, what they gonna say?
Have a drink, clink, found the bud light
Bad b…..s like me, is hard to come by
The patron on, let’s go get it on
The zone on, yes, I’m in the zone
Is it two, three? Leave a good tip
I’mma blow off my money and don’t give two sh-ts

I’m on the floor, floor
I love to dance
So give me more more, till I can’t stand
Get on the floor, floor
Like it’s your last chance
If you want more, more
Then here I am

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Can’t stop, ’cause we’re so high
Let’s do this one more time

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Let’s do this one last time
Can’t stop..

(We’re higher than a mother)
(We’re higher than a mother)
(We’re higher than a mother)

Jump in my hoopty hoopty hoop
I own that
And I ain’t paying my rent this month
I owe that
But frick who you want, and frick who you like
Dance our life, there’s no end in sight
Twinkle, twinkle, little star

Now everybody let me hear you say ray ray ray
Now spend all your money ’cause they pay pay pay
And if you’re a G, you a G,G,G!
My name is Onika, you can call me Nicki

Get on the floor, floor
Like it’s your last chance
If you want more, more
Then here I am

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Can’t stop, ’cause we’re so high
Let’s do this one more time

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Let’s do this one last time
Can’t stop..

(We’re higher than a mother)
(We’re higher than a mother)
(We’re higher than a mother)

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Can’t stop, ’cause we’re so high
Let’s do this one more time

Starships were meant to fly
Hands up, and touch the sky
Let’s do this one last time
Can’t stop..

(We’re higher than a mother)
(We’re higher than a mother)
(We’re higher than a mother)
