The 5minutes 53seconds long video starts with the message: “On Wednesday, May 23, 2012, I told my girlfriend, Amy, to meet me at my parent’s house. When she arrived I had stationed my brother to sit her on the back of a Honda CRV with some headphones on. He ‘wanted to play her a song’.

Isaac’s brother the starts the show off by banging a saucepan after giving Amy some headphones to wear.

To the sound of Bruno Mars’ ‘Marry You’, Amy is then serenaded by her and boyfriend Isaac’s friends and family as her car moves slowly along the street.

Brit Wong and Drew Burant, both 29, are hockey fanatics. Hes an Edmonton Oilers fan who grew up with the game in Regina, and shes a figure-skater-turned-hockey player whos a Vancouver Canucks fan.

So when they tied the knot on September 3 at Killarney Ice Rink in Vancouver, it was a hockey-themed affair with a matrimonial faceoff.

“You walk into a church, and everything’s there for you. So there’s a lot of work that went into this,” said Brit, “and on top of that, the fear of people falling; or of me, falling in my dress.”

She hit on this idea during a typical night watching “Hockey Night” in Canada on a Saturday, wondering aloud if “it would be cool to get married on a rink.”

“Brittany plans special events for a living. She kicked me to the curb for a lot of events wedding-wise. It probably helped the process,” said Drew.

So the plan was put in motion, despite some “are you serious?” reactions and questions about how, exactly, the bride is supposed to skate down the aisle in a wedding dress.

“We had to alter the dress quite a bit. It was just high enough where you could see the tips of my skates,” she said.

As for the ceremony itself: The seven-person wedding party were all on skates, while the guests were seated in chairs adorned with rally towels and some blankets in case the guests got the chills. “We did write on our invitations, ‘Dress warm,’” said the bride. “We were prepared.”

The wedding took place at center ice, featuring some usual and unusual aspects to the vows. “After we did our rings, we did the ceremonial puck drop, we did our first kiss and then skated out to the Oilers goal horn and goal song,” said Brit.

Since they skated away to the Oilers’ goal song, the puck used during the ceremonial puck drop had a Canucks logo.

“The puck drop was awkward. I don’t think our Justice of the Peace understood how to do a faceoff,” she said, “and Andrew was more concerned about winning the faceoff than smiling for the cameras. He’s like, ‘I can’t let my boys down and lose the faceoff.’”

The wedding photos took place around the rink, including some with the groom in the penalty box.

He also was able to live a “childhood dream” with a professional photographer: Teaming up with his buddies for the “snow shower on the camera” shot on the ice.

After photos, it was off to a local country club for the reception, where the hockey theme continued. Each member of the wedding party had a jersey with a number, and was introduced as being “from your Edmonton Oilers” or “from your Vancouver Canucks.” Brit and Drew were the captains.

The cupcake stand feature hockey sticks in a display created by a few friends.

The cupcake stand - note the hockey sticks

In the end, nobody fell on the ice, hockey was well-represented, and the bride and groom can cherish a memorable day at the rink.

“A lot of people say their wedding day was the best day of their lives. And this exactly was,” said Drew.

A marriage proposal on a London tube train has gone viral on YouTube after tailor Adam King hired a flashmob to help him pop the question.

With help from a show choir and some very meticulous planning, Adam popped the question to his 25-year-old girlfriend Lucy Rogers on Tuesday evening inside carriage number 2 of the 19.57 London Overground tube train from Euston to Watford Junction.

Shortly after it pulled out of London Euston, the choir broke into song, singing Bill Withers Lovely Day. One man first breaks the silence with an impromptu burst of When I wake up in the morning love, and the sunlight hurts my eyes. A blonde haired woman then casually follows with the second line, without raising her eyes from her Kindle. The entire carriage soon bursts into song, leaving other travellers open-mouthed with a perfectly tuneful and choreographed routine.

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz tied the knot in a low-key secret wedding ceremony in New York last Wednesday in front of just four guests Weiszs five-year-old son Henry from her relationship with Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, Craigs 18-year-old daughter Ella from his first marriage, and two family friends.

Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig

Daniel and Rachel insisted on having a small, quiet wedding. They are madly in love and couldn’t wait to be husband and wife but they wanted minimum fuss, a source said.

The Mummy star Rachel, 41, started dating Craig, 43, in November last year after she split from her long-term partner and the father of her son, Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, while Craig reportedly broke off his engagement to longtime girlfriend Satsuki Mitchell before the two got together.

The pair has been friends for years but allegedly fell for each other after they both starred as husband and wife in the forthcoming thriller Dream House. It seemed that they have taken the roles to heart.

They kept their romance a secret but it was exposed after they spent Christmas together, and then in May they were spotted together in Paris.

Craig rose to fame in 2006 when he became the sixth actor to play Bond in the film franchise and will star in “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.” Weisz won an Academy Award for “The Constant Gardener” and starred in “The Mummy.”

Robin Baun of Slate PR, which represents Craig, said Saturday that the actor and Weisz have married. She did not offer any details.

This is the first marriage for Weisz and the second for the James Bond star.

This is the most romantic and dramatic marriage proposals I have ever seen. The video of a carefully planned marriage proposal by Matt Still involving a Hollywood-style movie trailer, popcorn and an entire movie theater has gone viral on YouTube, attracting almost 3 million views since it was uploaded 3 days ago on Monday.

Matt, of Atlanta, USA, had hired wedding photographer Michael Escobar to create the action-packed clip titled Greatest Marriage Proposal Ever! for his girlfriend Ginny Joiner.

Matt begins his elaborate proposal to Ginny by getting her brother to take her to the movie theater supposedly to watch Fast Five. After the trailer for The Hangover 2 has been shown, Matts trailer appears on the screen.

Ginny wasnt aware that her reaction to the upcoming trailer was being secretly filmed.

‘This better be good’ she mouthed to her brother before Matt’s trailer began.

Giiny begins to suspect that her boyfriend Matt is on the screen and her astonished reaction can be seen via a separate camera embedded in the YouTube trailer.

The trailer begins with a deep voiceover proclaiming: ‘A love story so true it couldn’t have been written.’

The camera then pans to a conversation between two men, but only their bottom halves can be seen.

The faces of Matt and Ginny's father are not revealed when the tralier starts.

‘There comes a time when every father lets his little girl go to another man who loves her as much as he does,’ says the deep voice.

‘I want to spend the rest of my life with her. She has my heart, she is my friend, my everything. ‘She is nothing like any woman I’ve ever met before. She’s everything I’ve wanted and more.

‘I didn’t even know what real love is, but she is showing me and teaching me every day.’

Matt then asks Ginnys father for permission to pop the question in a Godfather-style scene that doesn’t reveal either of their faces and Ginny’s name is not used, leaving Ginny momentarily unaware of what is going on.

Ginny’s father accepts Matt’s request and the two shake hands before the camera pans up to reveal her father’s face in focus.

Matts trailer continues.

Matt then runs out of Ginny’s house and jumps into his car before speeding off to the movie theater. At the cinema, he pauses at the counter to buy a bucket of popcorn before taking a deep breath and going into the screening room in dramatic slow-motion footage to find Ginny.

Matt buys a bucket of popcorn before taking a deep breath and entering the screening room where Ginny is.

Ginny turns around in her seat to find Matt actually entering the theatre behind her, engagement ring in hand.

The camera switches to a camcorder as Matt gets down on one knee and pops the question.

Matt asks her to marry him, she says yes, an audience member says bravo, before the cinema erupts with applause and whoops.

Giiny says yes, an audience member says ‘bravo,’ and the cinema erupts with applause and whoops.

The house lights come on, and Ginny can see the theater is actually full of her family and friends.

You must be wondering why the trailer is titled Making The Movies Jealous. On their second date Matt said they were going to be making the movies jealous. Oh yes,Matt really makes lots of girls jealous too.

On their second date Matt had told Ginny they'd be making the movies jealous...he made every girl in the movie theatre jealous too

See back now and enjoy this amazing marriage proposal on YouTube.

But Matt, I am sorry to let you know that this is not the first proposal of its kind however. Todd Cavanaugh asked former Miss New York, Elisabeth Baldanza, to marry him in a dramatic movie trailer while the couple were at the theatre together. Watch that trailer now.

Singapore Mandopop superstar Stefanie Sun, 32, wed marketing consultant Indonesian-born Dutch boyfriend Nadim van der Ros, 34, in a low-key private wedding ceremony on Sunday after a five-year relationship.

Mandopop superstar Stefanie Sun

30 friends and family members gathered at Suns home at Stevens Road while six security guards kept the foreign and local members of the media at bay.

Suns close friend, Taiwan pop princess Jolin Tsai was among the guests who attended the couples low-key wedding dinner held at the Capella Singapore hotel on Sentosa.

Jolin Tsai with the newly-weds

Although Sun said her wedding day was relatively stress-free, van der Ros couldn’t possibly have thought so.

He had to brave a slew of diabolical challenges Sun’s bridesmaids had set, such as performing a ‘lion dance’ and assuming some difficult yoga positions, before finally being able to claim his bride, undergo traditional rites and head to Sentosa for their wedding banquet.

The wedding invitation was made public recently when an invited guest shared a picture of it online. The invitation card was simple and elegant — a design befitting of the low profile couple.

Apart from including the Chinese traditional character which means ‘double happiness’ on the card, the couple also stamped a line that aptly sums up their relationship, “He met her and She met him.”

Stefanie Sun's wedding invitation card

Besides her wedding in Singapore, Sun will also hold a celebratory banquet in Taiwan for her friends and members of her staff at a later date after her nuptials.

The media was not invited to Sun’s wedding and she gave no interviews, but the singer’s music label Wonderful Music released a series of photos taken on Sun’s wedding day, along with a statement from the bride on Sunday.

The happy couple

Beautiful bride Stefanie Sun

“Today is a happy day. It is the fifth anniversary of me and my other half’s relationship. It is also the most important day of my life.

“The decision to hold my wedding today is because we had dated for a long time. In addition, we are both very easy-going. It is a joyous ceremony, without any anxiety, without any special stress. The most stressful part was preparing for the wedding,” said Sun in her statement.

“Today is the beginning of a new chapter in my life. I hope from now on I can be a virtuous wife.

“Thank you everyone! Whether it is the blessings from friends in the media or my fans, it has all been received! Thank you!” Sun added.

“Hopefully, all the guests who turned up today are happy. The important point is today, I’m the most beautiful!”

Stefanie Sun in a Chinese wedding dress

If not for a nosey reporter, Stefanie Sun may have just kept her wedding under wraps. A Shin Min Daily reporter uncovered a marriage application while surfing the Registry of Marriages (ROM) website, showing that Sun had registered her union with Van Der Ros in a quiet civil ceremony on March 31, 2011. The ROM search showed details of Van Der Ros’ birthdate, as well as Sun’s dialect name, Sng Ee Tze.

Well, the cat’s out of the bag, and the timing could not be better as Sun has just released her new album named “It’s Time.” The irony of the album title is surely not lost on anyone.

The entire world seems to have been gripped by the royal wedding fever. Unless you are a hermit living in some mountain hide-away, you would know that Prince William and Kate Middleton will be walking down the aisle on April 29th, 2011 at the famous Westminster Abbey.

Ever since the royal couple announced their April 29 nuptials, merchandisers have been in overdrive creating everything from the usual china collectors items and t-shirts to weird and kinky stuff. The royal wedding frenzy has thus resulted in a glut of royal wedding memorabilia.

Royal wedding collectibles

There are the usual stuff like china ware, postcards, t-shirts, mugs, flags, ash trays, jigsaws, magnets, coins, stamps, and even food items like chocolates, pizza, donuts, roast dinners, cakes and whatnot.

In terms of popularity, the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981 broke all sorts of box office records in terms of sales of royal memorabilia.

The royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton could smash all previous royal memorabilia and merchandise sales figures thanks to the huge global excitement around the event and the opportunities to buy online. There was no eBay when Prince Charles and Lady Diana married in 1981.

To participate in the wedding of the decade, you can splurge on the wide choices of Prince William and Kate Middleton memorabilia.

Royal Wedding Collectors Edition Condom

Crown Jewels Royal Wedding Condoms of Distinction

Like a royal wedding, intercourse with a loved one is an unforgettable occasion

The aptly-named Crown Jewels Condoms of Distinction has launched the “Royal Wedding Collector’s Edition” souvenir condom to celebrate to commemorate Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding on April 29.

The contraceptives are sold in packs of three with a picture of the royal couple in front. The condoms have been described as “combining the strength of a prince with the yielding sensitivity of a princess-to-be.”

There has also been negative reactions to the condoms, with Majesty magazine editor Ingrid Seward saying that it was tasteless and hurtful.

‘Lie back and think of England’

“Like a Royal Wedding, intercourse with a loved one is an unforgettable occasion.” So say the folks at Crown Jewels, who advise their customers to “Lie back and think of England.”

If you purchase a box of the condoms and actually used them – as opposed to saving them as souvenirs – don’t be surprised if a new kind of prince or princess enters your life in say nine months or so.

Crowned Jewels “condoms of distinction” may promise a “union of pleasure and style,” but they also contain a disclaimer stating that they are “a novelty product and may not be suitable as a contraceptive or barrier against sexually transmitted diseases.”

Royal Virility Performance Brew

Royal Virility Performance Brew

“Royal Virility Performance” is a brew which touts itself as “a beer to stir the loins of newlywed princes, summon the ghosts of long gone princesses and cure the stammer of stuttering kings.”

The Scotland-based BrewDog Brewery’s web site says the artisanal pale ale is laced with an “herbal Viagra,” chocolate, horny goat weed and “a healthy dose of sarcasm.”

Royal Wedding Sick Bags

Lydia Leith poses for a photograph with some of her Royal wedding sick bags

British artist Lydia Leith from Carlisle has created a specially designed hand screen-printed Royal Wedding Sick Bagfor those already sick of hearing about Prince Williams upcoming nuptials to Kate Middleton. Leith, 24, has already sold out of her first batch, available for 3 each.

Lydia, who now lives in Edinburgh and is a graduate from the citys College of Art, admits she does not think it will be used as a sick bag.

Each bag features an illustration of Kate and Wills. Above their head hovers a regal crown and the words “Throne Up.” The bottom of the bag reads “Royal Wedding Sick Bag. Keep this handy on April 29th, 2011.”

“The bags are just a bit of fun, a sort of antidote to the hysteria surrounding the wedding,” Leith said. “I’m not an anti-monarchist in the slightest!

Royal Wedding Perfume

Here is a run-down of three of the perfumes dedicated to the royal wedding.

Roja Dove of Harrods Haute Parfumerie has commissioned Clive Christian to create a special luxurious set engraved with the initials of the betrothed. The crystal bottles are adorned with diamond solitaires and house an already existing perfume often advertized as being the most expensive one in the world, The No.1 Perfume. Only 1000 copies are reportedly released each year.

Harrods Haute Parfumerie

“Since this is Prince Williams great-great-great-great-grandmothers chosen perfumery and No. 1 is inspired by the love of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, the unique pair of perfumes will be an invisible connection between Prince William and Catherine and is an ideal way for them to pay homage to his royal ancestors on their wedding day.”

The set will be offered as a wedding present by Roja Dove through the royal house.

Floris, one of the oldest perfumeries extant in the world, established in 1730, have also insisted on paying homage to the momentous event. Simply called Wedding Bouquet, the perfume “has been created by drawing inspiration from the most popular Floris wedding fragrances from the past and introducing a modern twist using a white flower theme.”

Floris’ Wedding Bouquet

Grossmith of London have also taken the opportunity to re-create an ancient recipe used in 1893 to celebrate the betrothal and wedding of “a Princess who became Queen of England,” i.e., Queen Mary who married King George V. The floral bouquet is said to be “perfect for a modern princess.”

Grossman’s Betrothal

Outside of Great-Britain, German perfumer Kim Weisswange of Capital Cosmetics claims she has been commissioned to craft a duo of perfumes for Kate and William called William and Catherine. The royal house denies the claim but apparently Weisswange is a nose with celebrities credentials since Madonna, Prince Charles and the Queen are reported to wear her fragrances.

Prince Harry & Kate Royal Wedding Mug

A souvenir company has come out with a Royal Wedding commemorative mug, but they put Prince Harrys photo on it instead of Prince Williams. There are suspicions that the company did it on purpose, as an elaborate spoof. Others have speculated they did it to sell more of the supposed error mugs.

Prince Harry & Kate Middleton mug

On the back, an inscription reads: The fairytale romantic union of all the centuries. 29th April 2011.

The mug, supposedly designed by a Chinese firm Guandong Enterprises, can be purchased for the princely sum of 9.99 plus postage and packaging.

However, the fact that the company is apparently registered in Britain has led some to suspect it is all an elaborate spoof.

The website promoting the mug reads: Crafted in the finest bone china, it features an exquisite design of the happy couple with ornate gold detailing to honour this great moment in history.

Please be our guests to own this esteemed, limited edition heirloom to celebrate with your work associates, friends, family and loved ones on 29th April 2011.

The company adds: You are welcome to purchase now to avoid disappointment and regret.

To avoid confusion, the small print states that the mugs “are not supplied to, or approved by, Prince William of Wales, Catherine Middleton or any member of the Royal Family.”

Just when you thought you have seen it all in the world of reality TV, E! brings you “Bridalplasty”, the utter nadir of cultural decrepitude.

The new series, premiering November 28 at 9 p.m., will feature 12 brides-to-be pitting against each other each week in wedding-themed challenges (such as writing wedding vows and planning honeymoons) for nose jobs, implants, lipo and the ultimate prize: a celebrity-worthy dream wedding. All twelve of them will begin the journey living under one roof.

Bridalplasty

Bloggers refer to Bridalplasty as The Brides of Frankenstein, “horroreality”, and “the Final TV Show Ever Made Before Mankind Slips Quietly Into The Dust”.

The show, which appears intent on seeing a young brides-to-be transformed into plastic barbies, will be hosted by former Playboy model and Miss USA Shanna Moakler.

Shanna Moakler

Of course, “Bridalplasty” is not the first TV show about plastic surgery. “The Swan” and ABC’s “Extreme Makeover” both followed subjects who went under the knife to modify their appearance.

But “Bridalplasty” will be the first American reality show to have participants compete for plastic surgery, pushing the limits of medical ethics.

Despite “Bridalplasty’s” unsettling tagline — “the only show where the winner gets cut” — the reality competition follows a surprisingly standard format: Each week, the contestants will participate in a wedding- or relationship-themed challenge, such as picking the perfect dress, according to Jason Sarlanis, vice president of original programming and series development for E!

And like many reality competition shows, a winner is granted immunity each week and thus is exempt from competing the following episode. But, on “Bridalplasty,” immunity is also a form of “medical leave.”

Bridalplasty - The only show where the winner gets cut

“Contestants will wait until they’re ready to return — doctor’s orders,” Sarlanis said. “They won’t participate in any part of the episode that could mess with recuperation.”

But recovery time is not the only concern for Dr. John Diaz, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, California, who is not affiliated with the show. Diaz says, “By competing in a show like this, patients might feel pressured to undergo surgeries they wouldn’t have under normal circumstances.”

That pressure, he says, can stem from contestants’ peers on the show, as well as the fact that the surgeries are free.

“If a contestant is only interested in her nose, but every other woman around her is talking about her breasts, all of a sudden, she may feel pressure to do her breasts, as well,” Diaz said. “It’s almost like a peer pressure spurred on by this competition.”

Supporters and critics alike agree that “Bridalplasty” will most likely be a hit.

Sarah Polonsky, senior editor at BettyConfidential.com, said she’s worried the show will send a negative message to viewers — “equating cash to plastic surgery.”

“Anyone emotionally unstable enough to desire that much plastic surgery really needs Botox for the soul,” Polonsky said. “They should be giving out therapy instead of nose jobs. … When you start planning a wedding to include lip injections and rhinoplasty in addition to flower arrangements, it’s almost as belittling to your groom as it is to yourself.”

“In today’s entertainment landscape, the most absurd and crazy idea wins,” Hall said. “This certainly feels like the most absurd and crazy TV show in a long time.”

Under the American Society of Plastic Surgeons code of ethics, “We’re technically prohibited from giving procedures away as a prize for a contest. It totally undermines the doctor-patient relationship,” says Dr. Gayle Gordillo, associate professor plastic surgery at Ohio State University. “The ethical and social implications of this show are frightening.”

From a medical and ethical standpoint, many plastic surgeons objected to the use of plastic surgery as a prize to be fought over in the new show.

“It’s a bad idea on two counts. One, they’re rushing a surgery which is dangerous, and more importantly it’s totally unethical to offer plastic surgery as the result of winning a contest,” says Dr. Garry Brody, professor emeritus of plastic surgery at the University of Southern California.

In the first episode, 12 eager brides-to-be from across the country move into a mansion where they live together and compete to collect plastic surgery procedures and fabulous wedding prizes along the way. But before the competition heats up, they first meet with Dr. Terry Dubrow for a private consultation to create a personalized plastic surgery wish list that they hope to complete before walking down the aisle from muffin tops to crooked noses to flat chests, the perceived imperfections they hope to fix are extensive and dramatic. Each bride will leave the consultations with a clear vision of what her new body could be.

Dr. Terry Dubrow is a board certified plastic surgeon in southern California with over 15 years of experience. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a Certified Expert for The California Medical Board. He was the plastic surgeon on the Fox television show The Swan and his surgical practice includes reconstructive cancer surgery as well as cosmetic surgery.

The competition begins and the women go head to head in wedding-themed challenges, ranging from writing wedding vows to planning honeymoons. The winning bride receives the chance to choose a procedure from her wish list, which will take place immediately and be revealed at the beginning of the next episode. Each episode ends in a dramatic elimination with one bride being voted off by her competitors, possibly walking away with nothing and losing her chance to be the perfect bride.

The Bridalplasty champion will be named and viewers will follow her journey as she prepares for her dream wedding, which includes undergoing all of the procedures on her plastic surgery wish list, and her fiancs anticipation as he waits to see her full transformation. In a moment anticipated all season long, viewers will witness his emotional and possibly shocked reaction as they stand at the altar and he lifts her veil to see her for the first time following her extreme plastic surgery. The dramatic finale marks the end of her quest for perfection and reveals if her dream wedding does in fact become a reality.
