Wedding, Modern Swing Band, Suffolk, April 1st 2017
Wedding Band Hadleigh Suffolk
No fooling as Adam Chandler's Modern Swing Band create a stunning style
It may have been April Fools' Day, but Jim and Toni weren't kidding when they arrived for their elegant wedding reception dinner dance at Priory Hall, in the Suffolk market town of Hadleigh. With its ancient timbers and chocolate-box exterior, Priory Hall is the perfect setting for a quiet, intimate celebration; with just family and friends present, Jim and Toni still wanted to create a wedding celebration to remember – and that was where we came in, getting straight down to business with some upbeat swing medleys that gave a modern twist to a wedding that was all about memorable elegance.
A saxophone duet provided a subtle accompaniment to the sit-down meal, with some gentle jazz creating an atmosphere that encouraged relaxation and conversation. Once the plates were cleared, and the lights went down, our full Modern Swing Band sprang into action, with lively medleys that brought smiles to everyone's faces, and created the perfect setting for a stunning, lively evening of dancing and celebration.
We finished the evening with the same saxophone duet that had started it, as Jim and Toni had chosen to have a Last Dance, gliding across the dance floor to the soft sounds of “True Colours”, the perfect end to the perfect day – and not a joker in sight.
Jim:"I can't thank Adam and his Modern Swing Band enough – this was a perfect wedding for us, and everything we could have wanted. Nice on, guys!"
Toni:"We chose April Fools' to get married as that was how we first got together; we work for the same company, though in different departments, and some wag decided that, as an April Fool, two years ago, they'd get my boss to send an email round to all the single women in my department, telling us that we'd been assigned to work with a single guy from one of the other departments. I got Jim, and we spent the whole morning talking, laughing, and realising that we had way more than the job in common – the joke was certainly on the joker, that time! (and yes, they were invited to our wedding.)"
