Hi Guys

Have been asked to film my first Marryoke video in March. Have seen several on youtube, but wondering the best way to tackle this job.  Was thinking of playing the tune on a portable CD player so they could sing along in the park, film it once again in the evening with the DJ playing the song and all the guests on the dance floor joining in, then mixing them both shoots together.

Any helpful suggestions would be great.  Thanks.  Mike.

Hi MIke - Only done a few of these, but works better if principal singers have words to song printed out prior to the wedding. They need to be very familiar with not only the song but forming the words correctly when they mime. It'll save many retakes :) 

Do not follow, I may not lead. Do not lead . . . I may not follow.

Done quite a few of these, mainly what I call half Marryokes.
Give me a call and ask away, so much to say so little time to write.

I had never heard of these. Are they common now then?

They are Martin.  Started in the US, but you know us, were 10 years behind them.
