Apologies if the title might be a little misleading. I have a couple getting married later this year where the grooms relations are from New Zealand, many of whom won't be able to make the day. The couple would like them to be able to make video messages which could be burned to disk and played at the evening dance.
What's the easiest way for the relations to get the video clips to the UK - I'm assuming uploading to Youtube and then downloading the originals here but is there a better way? The chances are that the relations aren't going to be overly computer literate in video terms, hence my use of the word 'easiest'.
Thanks in advance.

What about some cloud storage system such as Dropbox?

I'd get them to send them via www.wetransfer.com - its really easy to use and totally free for files upto 2GB - If you need to tranfer bigger files you can subscribe for a month for $10 which then lets people send you files upto 10GB. 

it works very well, i use it loads for sending video files to and from clients.

Thanks for the replies, that looks like a fool proof way of getting the files to me for editing, it would have to be a pretty long congratulations message to need more than the 2gb size.(opens big mouth too soon)
