Marryokes Epic Wedding Videos
Marryokes epic wedding videos.
Choosing a videographer for your wedding is a pretty major decision. Its is a big investment and finding someone who you trust to capture your big day can be hard. You might not even be sure if you want a videographer for your wedding. I promise you, after you see what Marryokes do you will need a wedding video and you will need Katie and her team to do it! Its no wonder their YouTube Channel has millions of views!
I spoke to Katie to find out more about Marryokes, how the concept came about, what songs they’ve heard too many times to count and that video with One Direction.
It turns out the whole company started almost by accident. Katie saw an amatuer video on Facebook and decided since they had just bought a new camera and a friends wedding was in a few weeks that they would try it out with the guests in secret and surprise the bride and groom with it. They did just that and on the brides birthday a few weeks later they invited as many wedding guests as they could mustre over to theirs and surprised her with the first ever Marryoke. Everyone loved it! It got 60,000 hits on YouTube in a few days and the requests started coming in.
Not long after they got a last minute request to do a Marryoke at a wedding in Cabra Castle, Kingscourt, Co Cavan, Ireland. It turned out a few famous faces were at the wedding including Shayne Ward and straight from the XFactor, One Direction. It was just before One Direction’s first single so 2 weeks later the video blew up! To date it has almost 2.5 million views!
Since then the Northern Ireland based team have been making magic at 30-40 weddings a year and have travelled to Las Vegas, Sri Lanka, Italy, Paris, New york and across the pond to Scotland to capture those precious moments.
I asked Katie what the most popular songs for their Marryoke videos were, I’ve Got A Feeling by The Black-Eyed Peas, Marry You by Bruno Mars and Doon’t Stop Me Now by Queen are the most popular but they keep a running list of songs they like that would work for the videos so if your stuck for ideas they are more than happy to give a few suggestions. Katie told me there was only one time that they refused to do a song requested by the bride and groom, one couple wanted to make their Marryoke to Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke and lets face it who wants to ask anyones granny to sing those lyrics!!
Marryokes also do full wedding day documentary videos, highlight videos and same day edit highlight videos like Sean and Kirstens. The same day edit means that the 3-4 minute video is ready for you and your guests to view the following day at your wedding after party. Pretty awesome isn’t it! They do different packages to suit every couples needs and are currently taking bookings for 2017, but will sometimes take last minute bookings up to a few weeks before a wedding depending on their schedule.

Now for Paul and Clodagh’s wedding at Cabra Castle, Co Cavan, Ireland featuring One Direction and Shayne Ward. Enjoy!
