A Vintage Affair at Ansty Hall...

Although we are regulars in the Orangery at Ansty Hall Hotel in Coventry (as you will now if you read last Friday's blog!), we have never seen it decked out quite as it was last night...

Gorgeous vintage table settings

We were greeted by a thoroughly vintage scene: from lace bunting and chair bows to a retro suitcase featuring a "Just Married" sign. Candles, hand-tied bouquets and chic little cups and saucers... The Orangery looked stunning.

The couple had thought about so many little touches

The bride and groom looked equally amazing with Sarah modelling a vintage ivory lace gown (in keeping with her theme of course) and Gary wearing a particularly dapper and dashing pinstripe suit with waistcoat (I think Adam had his eye on this... He's one for a nice suit himself you know!)

Check out Mr Suave!

The newlyweds had decided to have their speeches at the beginning of their evening reception and so, once the groom and best man had said their bits and the ’thank yous’ had been done, the happy couple cut their wedding cake and took to the floor for their first dance: At Last by Etta James


A beautiful first dance to Etta James

Their bridal party and guests joined them on the dancefloor for Adam's first live set of swing, Michael Bublé and Rat Pack classics...

Act 1: Swing, Rat Pack and Buble

and the new Mrs Chamberlain even led the New York, New York kick line with her female guests in tow!

The bride and her 'girls' on the dancefloor

As you can see, Adam's not one to be out done though!!

Adam's kicks are getting higher and higher!

After the guests had tucked into a well-earned buffet, they regrouped on the dancefloor for Act 2! This time Adam was joined on stage by his Souljers and the audience lapped up the mix of soul, Motown and pop music... Most even joining in with the choreography too! Can you spot the groom in this quick clip? ;)

Before I forget, you can pop over to our Facebook Fan page for even more pictures of their big day too (and don't forget to press 'like' whilst you're there!)

get yourself over to Adam on Facebook!!Our Facebook Fan Page (where all of the action happens!)

After the beautiful bride had danced her last dances, after Adam had finally had a cuddle from their little girl and after the exceptionally lovely groom had gushed about the show and showered us with wonderful compliments (he was so sweet!), Sarah and Gary left among lots of smiling guests with signed photoframes in hand and a beautiful 10 month old baby girl in their arms... What a lucky couple! We wish you all the luck in the world guys and many happy years together :) x x x

Another one of the lovely retro pieces that they used

Puttin' On The Glitz - Photo Sneak Peek!

(c) these fantastic shots were taken on Saturday 11th December 2010 by the very talented Gary @ SMD Photography. He managed to get some truly great shots and we are so happy with them!

Where are the rest of the photos you ask?? Well, you'll have to wait to see them all!! (Mainly because Gary has taken so many brilliant shots that we've now got to pick out the best from a million!! Obviously, I'm exaggerating a little!)



Christmas 2010 with Adam Thomas & Leicester Tigers!

As I don't have many events that can be attended by the general public, I thought that it would be nice (if not a little early I agree!) to spread the word of Adam's huge Christmas shows at Leicester Tigers.

Adam Thomas will be accompanied by his stunning Dancers and legendary 8 piece Swing & Soul Band from the end of November until the first week in January in the 1000 capacity Caterpillar Stand at Welford Road, so get planning to become a part of the biggest Christmas party in town this festive season!



Join us to celebrate Christmas 2010 at Welford Road, the home of Leicester Tigers.

Whether you're looking for a private Christmas party or to be part of a bigger event, whatever the size of your group we can make it a night to remember with Tigers.

Following the success of our 'Fire & Ice' themed parties in 2009, this year we'll be 'Putting on the Glitz'.

Join the biggest party night in the East Midlands, enjoy a sumptuous three-course dinner and full entertainment package in our 1,000-seater suite.

Or, if you are looking for a more traditional evening, then join one of our Christmas party nights where you can enjoy a three-course dinner with disco and dancing till late.

Putting on the Glitz

Think big-band sound with saxophones, trumpets and trombones, think showgirls, then add music from our DJ to round off the night and you have the makings of a fantastic party.

Our reputation for great food and first-class service goes before us and this night will be no exception. This is your invitation to the most sought-after party in town.

Christmas menu

Warm tartlet of feta cheese, watercress, sun blushed & cherry tomatoes

Turkey escalope wrapped in bacon, filled with a spinach & apricot stuffing
Vegetarian option: Medley of vegetables served in a sweet red pepper topped with a tarragon sauce
Main course accompanied by roasted roots & braised potato

Marbled dark & white chocolate mousse set on chocolate sponge served with a fruit coulis

Freshly brewed coffee & after dinner mints

Christmas Party Nights

Take a delicious three-course dinner, great sounds from our DJ, a splash of Christmas spirit and maybe a few glasses of Christmas cheer, and mix them up into a fantastic evening.
Meet friends in the bar before you are seated at your table for a traditional Christmas dinner, then dance the night away to some great sounds. Great food, great party atmosphere, great value for money.

// NEW SONGS // Crazy Love, 10/10 and She's Always A Woman


Adam Thomas, the UK's Number One Wedding Singer, has just added four brand new songs into the Solo Set list after popular demand.

Always very keen to keep up to date and maintain the consistency of the show as a whole, Adam felt that these Pop and Swing numbers complimented his Wedding Show perfectly.


  • 10/10 - Paolo Nutini
  • Pencil Full Of Lead - Paolo Nutini
  • Crazy Love - Michael Buble
  • She's Always A Woman - Billy Joel/Fyfe Dangerfield, is to be added soon. It has been featured on this John Lewis ad and isn't it lovely? :)



Only The Best Will Do

A recent survey found that 72% of guests remember wedding entertainment most after attending someone's big day... that's a huge amount of people to disappoint if you opt for something dull... but potentially a great chance to impress both your day and evening guests with something fantastic!

The UK's Best Wedding Singer

As the UK's best wedding singer, you really can trust Adam Thomas to wow your guests and exceed all expectations: The first live entertainment set consists of Michael Buble - style Swing and Rat Pack songs: Save the Last Dance, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Haven't Met you Yet, Kick in the Head… these are real floorfillers and they give your older guests a chance to show-off their ballroom skills early on in the evening too!

Act Two is the party half where the dance floor will be full from start to finish with The Blues Brothers, The Killers and Paolo Nutini bringing the night to life.
