Mohawk Radio: Love & Leather and a Rock N Roll Wedding

Mohawk Radio: Love & Leather and a Rock N Roll Wedding

On Saturday 27th May at the Big Barn Rally in Compstall, two MR’ers tied the knot…. Singer Mia Page and guitarist James Gregory of the band Mohawk Radio were married.  As Mia recalls:

“The ceremony was a very low key rock n roll affair, with guests greeted at the wedding marquee where Bermuda Rum Swizzle and Dark and Stormys were the wedding couples drink of choice, and very much loved by the rock n roll attendees!

Reception music was very much the grooms choice, with the likes of Pantera, Slipknot, Metallica and System of a Down blaring out!

Master of ceremonies was Nige-Elvis ( Nigel Cartner journalist, author and radio DJ on Pure FM's Sonic Bandwagon and the Road House) who in a very Vegas flare started the ceremony off in an Elivs voice, which made everyone laugh, before getting into the more personal parts of the wedding, which had everyone sheading a tear!!!

Messages from friends and family ( including family and friends from overseas ) collected by Nige-Elvis were collected and used as a total surprise as part of the blessing, Mia and James were truly blown away by the amount of love and words shared throughout the ceremony. Standing in the English Country side, under a beautiful Oak tree, with Las Vegas Elvis in the middle of an American Style biker rally, amoungst friends and family, was truly overwhelming and magical.

Rings exchanged, and confetting thrown, it was time to party!! Bikers at the ready, Mia was thrown in the back of a motor bike and driven around the site for a bridal lap .. where she was greeted with cheers and congratualations from all the Big Barn Rally family, which was one of the most incredible moments!! So much love sent our way , by some of the nices people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting and the night before, performing for!

The reception was legendary with the awesome MotorHeadache who kicked so much ass!! Our first dance was to the Ace of Spades!! It really couldn't have been a better wedding, personal, fun, and full of love and leather and 100% true to who we are in our heart and souls .. which are entrenched in Rock N Roll forever !! xxx

Special thanks so out amazing friends and family, The Big Barn Rally Family ( Alfie/ Chris) and of course the awesome Hancock Family ! xxx

After the blessing by Nige -Elvis, we were all serenaded by Lauren Jay ( singer song writer) and my sister from another mister with a song she wrote for us called Love & Leather! It was incredible and the perfect ending to the most perfect wedding ceremony!”

Now we love a party as much as anyone so we want to know… where was our invite? ;-)

Regardless, our warmest heartfelt congratulations go out to the both of them and we wish them every happiness for their rock'n'roll future together.

Love & Leather

They've got their own kind of fairytale in pure rocknroll

While the prince rocks the strings

She rocks the microphone

Better hold on tight

It's a hell of a ride

For their leather, love, suit and tie

The day she met him it was hard to believe

That two people could connect so quick

And her heart he would thieve

They were friends for years before they both fell head over heals

Before they knew it with a kiss it was sealed

She took his heart

Didn't know they'd get this far

He took her heart

Bound by the strings on his guitar

Ended up in Venice

And they both got caught out

But the love is true, and everyone knew they'd be one from the start

They've got their own kind of fairytale in pure rocknroll

While the prince rocks the strings

She rocks the microphone

Better hold on tight

It's a hell of a ride

For their leather, love, suit and tie

A few years later

Yeah they still rock out

Cause everyone knows that this is what rocknroll heaven is about

A lifetime of sunshine

And a little bit of rain

And two million heartbeats form two lovers names

They've got their own kind of fairytale in pure rocknroll

While the prince rocks the strings

She rocks the microphone

Better hold on tight It's a hell of a ride

For their leather, love, suit and tie Suit and tie(x2)

They've got their own kind of fairytale in pure rocknroll

While the prince rocks the strings

She rocks the microphone

Better hold on tight

It's a hell of a ride

For their leather, love, suit and tie

Suit and tie
