How would you go about this request?

Hi Guys,

I have a Wedding to shoot in November, so imagine the scene, based in England, it will be cold, grey, possibly raining.

So how would you go about setting the scene of shooting the groom, not with a gun, but filming him singing along to the song I'm to sexy for my shirt, by Right Said Fred, yes your right, Right Said Fred.

This as been requested by the bride to be, as he arrives at the church.

The problem is, he won't be arriving till about half hour before the wedding ceremony.

So, my question is, how would you guys go about setting this request up?

I look forward to your input.

Regards
Wayne

Do you need the guests to be there?
If not I suggest doing it some other day. He can dress same way and everything is ok. Unless you need to have other people too.
Half an hour is barely enough to set up at the churh, if you by yourself.
You don't want to be setting up when all the guests are aready there.

Hi Konrad,

Thanks for the reply.

I don't need the guest's to be involved really, just the groom and his bestman really.

I have never tried anything like this before so any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks again
Wayne

I'm with Kondrad - do it on an earlier day. Or simply get him to show up much earlier. I'd budget at least an hour to do it right, and that doesn't include the time it takes to set up for the ceremony and get covering shots of the church.
