As you know, Sam and I are getting married on Friday (eeek) 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 ‘Happy’ by Cheryl Cole

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.

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…

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

Mel and Dave

PPS Here are those lyrics…

“Crazy Stupid Love”

La la la la la la la love [x8]

Swore I would never be that girl holding your hand
Look at you gazing
Acting like your biggest fan
I used to make fun
Of all the things that they said
Saying I will never be like that
But then you showed up
Like you have been there before
Was like you knew me
Had me with every word
You saw right through me
Melted me down to the core
I was done when you walked through the door

Well, I don’t know how you do it to me
You make my brain just stop
Sink my heart to my feet
It’s like a roller coaster
But I’m only going up
I’m in crazy stupid love

So call me baby
In front of all your friends
It used to shake me
But would you say it again
It’s a weird feeling
We’re laying here in the dark
And I don’t wanna fight this spark
You got me flying
Don’t want to ever come down
I’m realizing
I kinda need you around
Hard to believe it
I’m that girl holding your hand
And I’m still tryna understand

Well, I don’t know how you do it to me
You make my brain just stop
Sink my heart to my feet
It’s like a roller coaster
But I’m only going up
I’m in crazy stupid love

[Tinie Tempah:]
Whistle, I like it when you blow the whistle
You make me wanna ch!
Bang bang bang bang
Baby I don’t own a pistol
My tongue wagging when you wiggle
I’ll end up kissing you with or without the mistle
Love the open toes and the clothes
Even though we ain’t official
You official, you official
When you see me in a suit
Say I’m so smooth criminal
Playing hard to get
Girl you’re being too difficult
Let me in your mind
For I get to the physical
I ain’t tryna mess with any woman
That’s typical, need original
Lips and eyes, big surprise
If she have hips and thighsk
Kissed her twice
Now she say I’m Mr. Right
She had my D
Now she dickmatised
Whoa lord

Well, I don’t know how you do it to me
You make my brain just stop
Sink my heart to my feet
It’s like a roller coaster
But I’m only going up
I’m in crazy stupid love

La la la la la la la love
La la la la la la la love
I’m in crazy stupid love
La la la la la la la love
La la la la la la la love
Oh I’m in crazy stupid love
La la la la la la la love
La la la la la la la love
