Even Gravity Can't Hold Us Down

jameszowie

As you know, we are getting married on 8th August 2015 (Woooooop) and we can’t wait to see you there!!

What you probably all 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 ‘Gravity’ by Ella Eyre.

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

 

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

Zowie and James

PPS Here are those lyrics…
All hands on the trigger
All eyes on the gun
They don’t believe that we are
Strong enough to hold on
‘Cause I’m the only one to get you
The only one to figure you out
You’re a place that I can go to
A face I couldn’t live without
And nobody sees what we do
Don’t need anybody else around

No matter what they told us
Gravity won’t hold us down

Even gravity can’t hold us
Even gravity can’t hold us down
Even gravity can’t hold us
Not even gravity can hold us down

‘Cause I’m the only one to get you
The only one to figure you out
You’re a place that I can go to
A face I couldn’t live without
And nobody sees what we do
Don’t need anybody else around
Cause no matter what they told us
Gravity can’t hold us down

Can’t understand the logic of how we came to be
Or what we gaining from it
That we should dare to dream

‘Cause I’m the only one to get you
The only one to figure you out
And there’s nothing left to go through
Just look at where we are right now
They’ll never see it in the way we do
‘Cause they’ll never have what we have found
It don’t matter what they told us
Gravity won’t hold us down

Even gravity can’t hold us
Even gravity can’t hold us down
Even gravity can’t hold us
Even gravity won’t hold us down
Gravity, gravity
And even gravity, gravity
Gravity, gravity
No, gravity, can’t hold us down
Gravity, gravity
Not even gravity, gravity
Gravity can’t hold us
Even gravity can’t hold us down
Can’t hold us down
Can’t hold us down
