Marryoke is the documentation and performance of a song which is traditionally produced at a wedding by a wedding videographer.

Description[edit]

Marryoke is a trend within the wedding industry which involves participants miming and performing a song of their choice. The footage is usually shot on the wedding day[1] although it is not an activity exclusive to weddings.[2] Once filmed, the footage is edited together so that it appears as if the participants are performing the song themselves. The phrase Marryoke is a play on the word karaoke due to their similarities; however a marryoke involves no actual singing from the participants being included in the final edit as the participants singing is lip synced to the original artist in editing. Marryoke is becoming popular as a form of wedding entertainment fun for guests.
