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!)

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
A Big Band for A Big Day!
On 27th August 2010 we performed at the truly stunning and incredibly unique Norwood Park Hotel in Southwell, Nottingham for Danielle and Stephen Riggott... and what a lovely day we all had too.
Danielle and Stephen first heard about Adam after a recommendation from the lovely Paul at Spirits High Disco's (if you need a professional, reliable disco for your event then Paul is the man! He also happens to be thoroughly nice guy too!) and, after browsing the Adam Thomas website, that was enough for them to know that they wanted Adam and his 8 piece Swing & Soul Band to be a part of their big day!
The Day Itself
After arriving at the venue we realised that Danielle and Stephen had thought through every single meticulous detail and everything looked stunning: from the flowers to the cake, the dress to the venue itself.
Norwood Park is one of the best wedding venues in the Midlands and would make any wedding or special event stand out from the crowd simply because of it's stunning location, the truly unique courtyard and contemporary style mixed with traditional architecture. (If you haven't guessed already, we likey this venue!!)
The food is stupendous, the staff are friendly yet super efficient and professional and the all-round feel of the place is what a wedding venue should be... magical!
Norwood Park is a part of Maverick Venues and if you are still undecided as to who you would like to host your wedding or special occasion, then I urge you to take a good look around their stunning collection of venues as they may just have the venue of your dreams! Norwood Park and Sutton Bonnington are our personal favourites! :)
"Here We Are, On Earth Together, It's You And I..."
Adam was asked by Danielle and Stephen if he could sing Stevie Wonder's 'You And I' for their First Dance and Adam was only too happy to accept. This particular track has truly wonderful lyrics and is the perfect first dance song for those couples still undecided and in need of something that really says something special.
"Adam Thomas and his Swing & Soul Big Band to the stage..."
Adam performed all of his usual crowd pleasing favourites including 'Sway,' 'That's Amore,' 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You,' 'Save The Last Dance' and Michael Buble's brand new single 'Hollywood.' Swing and Big Band first half over - phew!
Act Two got the party into full swing as Adam kept them all going with a blend of Soul, Indie and Pop tracks such as 'Soul Man,' 'All Night Long,' 'My Girl,' 'Brown Eyed Girl' and 'Valerie.' As we've said before, Adam's renditions of Paolo Nutini's 'Pencil Full Of Lead' has really proven to be a massive hit with all of his audiences this summer: it fills the dance floor every time!
Norwood Park with its original furnishings and imposing, sweeping staircase makes a superb backdrop for your special day. The Palladian style Gallery and partially roofed Courtyard can accommodate up to 180 guests for a wedding breakfast, and up to 250 guests for an evening reception. Our helpful wedding staff can provide as much or as little support as you require when planning your day.
The house itself was awarded its Civil Marriage Licence in 1998 and has since become renowned for wedding parties wishing to combine the Ceremony and Wedding Reception in one stunning location. Our flexible approach to weddings ensures a day that is all about YOU.
