Wedding Video Becomes Internet Sensation

Thursday July 4 2013

Everybody Dance Now! Everybody Dance Now!

IT may not have been a typical wedding song, but Gary and Tracy Richardson's choice certainly got their guests dancing in the aisles and it's become an internet sensation with over 450,000 hits.

Gary, 48, from Hoyland, tied the knot in unforgettable style with his bride Tracy, 37, in Blyth, Nottinghamshire. It has had more than 450,000 hits on YouTube. You can view it here.

Vicar Rev Kate Bottley declared the couple man and wife then stunned the traditional church congregation by breaking into a disco dance routine to 'Everybody Dance Now' by C+C Music Factory, before the 100-strong congregation joined in and strutted their stuff to 'Celebration' by Kool & The Gang.

Guests not in the know looked flabbergasted as those in on the stunt - 28 family and friends - started their routine.

"I really wanted a traditional wedding," Tracy said. "That was really important for us, to get married in a church, but we wanted to create something that our guests would remember.

"We wanted to show that church can be a joyous occasion. It can be uplifting."

I saw the couple (and the vicar) being interviewed last week on tv and they said the aunts (on the grooms side) were desperate for a toilet break and this was the first chance they had after the official service was over.... Great dance though and what a fab vicar for being so cool (and a good dancer lol)..
