No matter how old you are, everyone loves to attend a wedding.
There’s something contagious and fun about celebrating new love. Let’s face it, there are plenty of things to love about weddings: there’s dancing, wedding cake and sometimes even an open bar. Although different weddings have different traditions and ceremonies, the internet has created some of its own viral traditions. One of those is the flash mob, wherein a bunch of people burst out unexpectedly to do some kind of spontaneous performance.
One video in particular has been making the rounds on the internet for just that reason.
The clip comes all the way from Blyth in Nottinghamshire, England.
It was taken at St. Mary and St. Martin’s Church and features the marriage of Gary and Tracy Richardson. As the clip begins, the ceremony seems like any other wedding. After the vicar says a few words, the newlyweds kiss one another as the crowd applauds. After that is when things get a little unusual. Once the two break apart, “Everybody Dance Now” starts playing and the vicar starts busting a move.
Right after that, the bride and groom join in!
As the song continues, more dancers come out from behind the newlyweds and join in on the fun.
After the first song is over, “Celebration” by Kool and the Gang comes on and everyone starts clapping along. By the end of the video, everyone in the church is on their feet and following along with the choreography. Perhaps the funniest thing of all is that once the song ends, the ceremony picks up right where it left off!
Needless to say, the flash mob was a resounding success.
So far, the Richardson’s clip has nearly nine million views on YouTube.
The couple also posted a little bit of explanation behind the clip along with the video:
Whilst planning our wedding we knew we wanted something a bit different. Upholding tradition but with a modern twist. So when our incredibly accommodating and inspiring Vicar, Reverend Kate Bottley of St Mary and St Martin’s, Blyth, suggested a ‘flash mob’, we were sold!
So for those of you who took part, thank you for your time and commitment, you made our wish come true and have created a lasting memory. For those of you who were there, thank you again for being with us and joining in and to everyone else, remember – you will always achieve your dreams with the love and support of those around you, a fantastic vicar, church and congregation and a bit of faith!
Congratulations to Gary and Tracy Richardson!
