Are you sure you want either?  DSLR video is complex, touchy and not exactly intuitive....

Maybe something like a GoPro?  Obviously depends on what you plan to do in the future with the camera, but there are lots of wedding photographers who are using GoPros because they are small, relatively inexpensive (certainly compared to a DSLR) and fairly flexible.

The D800 has better quality output than the D4, the latter being a bit softer, but it's a pretty small difference.
