Clare and Eddie's Wedding Invitation

Clare & Eddie’s Big Day

As you know, Eddie & I are getting married at the end of September and we can’t wait to see you all there!!

 

What you probably don’t know is, we have invited the team from Wedding marryokes to film everyone enjoying the day, singing, dancing and generally having a great time to the all time classic rock song ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ by Queen.

 

In case this is a bit before your time, or as a memory jogger here it is…

I know…I know that video is well dated and they didn’t seem to be having that much fun. So here’s the 2012 Olympic-oke to the same song.

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 if you want to, you can rehearse and remember them to perfection! Alternatively there is a link to the lyrics here too –Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen

(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 WM guys at info@weddingmarryokes.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 WM 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 WM 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 WM 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…

Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen

Tonight I’m gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive
And the world, I’ll turn it inside out, yeah
I’m floating around in ecstasy
So don’t stop me now
Don’t stop me
’cause I’m having a good time
Having a good time

I’m a shooting star leaping through the sky
Like a tiger defying the laws of the gravity
I’m a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva
I’m gonna go go go there’s no stopping me
I’m burning through the sky, yeah
Two hundred degrees that’s why they call me Mr. Fahrenheit
I’m travelling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic man out of you

Don’t stop me now
I’m having such a good time
I’m having a ball
Don’t stop me now
If you wanna have a good time
Just give me a call
Don’t stop me now
’cause I’m having a good time
Don’t stop me now
Yes I’m having a good time
I don’t wanna stop at all, yeah

I’m a rocket ship on my way to Mars
On a collision course
I am a satellite
I’m out of control
I’m a sex machine ready to reload
Like an atom bomb about to oh oh oh oh oh explode!
I’m burning through the sky, yeah
Two hundred degrees that’s why they call me Mr. Fahrenheit
I’m travelling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic woman of you

Don’t stop me don’t stop me, don’t stop me hey hey hey!
Don’t stop me don’t stop me ooh ooh ooh

Burning through the sky yeah
Two hundred degrees that’s why they call me Mr. Fahrenheit
I’m travelling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic man out of you

Don’t stop me now
I’m having such a good time
I’m having a ball
Don’t stop me now
If you wanna have a good time
Just give me a call
Don’t stop me now
’cause I’m having a good time
Don’t stop me now
