Chesford Grange for Becky & Chet Patel

An extraordinary wedding!

On Saturday I had the pleasure of performing at the very lovely Chesford Grange in Warwickshire for Becky and Chet Patel... at only my second Indian/English Wedding ever... and I loved it!

Becky and Chet created an extraordinary wedding by having two ceremonies! That's right, two! The first was a traditional, English wedding with Becky wearing a beautiful white wedding gown and Chet and his boys in very stylish grey suits.

After a short break, a sea of vibrant colours started to fill the corridors as the guests made their way to the second ceremony: a traditional Hindu wedding complete with a truly stunning Mandap and traditional decorations. It looked magical.

I can't really describe how lovely everyone looked in their different attires but it was, on the whole, a wonderful way to incorporate both cultures and traditional services into one truly magical wedding.

"Adam Thomas to the stage..."

The new Mr and Mrs Patel booked Adam to perform his Solo Show for their Wedding Entertainment after seeing him perform live at the Ansty Hall Wedding Fair. They chose to include a Wedding Disco and an additional hour to take the disco right up to 1am.

Adam performed all of his usual crowd pleasing favourites including 'Save The Last Dance,' 'Meglia Stasera (It Had Better Be Tonight)' and Michael Buble's 'Everything' as the bride and groom's second dance with the remainder of the wedding party. And that was only the Swing and Big Band first half!

Act Two was where the party really started though! The crowd were a really lively bunch, never leaving the dance floor as Adam kept them going with a blend of Soul and Pop tracks like 'Soul Man,' 'My Girl,' and 'Valerie.' Adam's renditions of Paolo Nutini's 'Pencil Full Of Lead' and '10/10' have really proven to be massive hits with all of his audiences this summer though: they fill the dance floor every time!

Disco Time... with a twist!

The disco started at around 10.30pm with the usual crowd pleasers, but it was the absolutely massive Indian anthem 'Mundian to Bach Ke' by Punjabi MC that really stole the show for both Indian and English guests! The song is one of the biggest Indian mainstream hits of all time and is mainly popular with English audiences due to its sample of the Knight Rider theme tune. Should you wish to join in or perhaps, like me, you're curious about what the lyrics actually mean, here are the lyrics and the translation too.
