Your wedding day will fly-by right before your eyes, without you as a couple having a chance of taking everything in. So if you throw in creating a music video into the mix, things will get a little busy and crazy. This is why we stress that planning is important, knowing the scenes of the Marryoke that you will be involved, how and when these are going to be filmed.
If you want to take some of this stress away, why not film part of the Marryoke before or after you wedding day? This can be done in a similar way to a pre-wedding photo portrait shoot.

Looking for a fun way to get your guests involved in your wedding Marryoke? Not every guest is an X Factor wannabe and would feel awkward in a one on one singing session in front of camera. Having guests perform a signature dance move in small groups is a great way of getting around this and also adds a real bit of fun to your video.
We can film these anywhere in and around your venue or we can bring a green screen to setup a booth area in the evening, so your guests can dance in private when relaxed to your chosen track.
