Chris Martin surprises engaged couple with first dance number

An engaged couple in England had the adventure of a lifetime when Chris Martin performed their first dance number for them.

Newlyweds-to-be Hannah and Jeremy had planned a catering meeting at the Stag Inn pub in Hinton Charterhouse, where the Coldplay frontman happened to have a drink with his girlfriend, Dakota Johnson, on Sunday.

The company’s landlord, Chris Parkin, said he made an effort to go to Martin, 45, to propose to his 13-year-old son Alfred – an avid pianist – which sparked a conversation about the wedding, according to Newsflare. of August 28. †

“Jeremy and Hannah told him about their marriage — and said their first dance would be on ‘A Sky Full of Stars,'” Parkin said, prompting the singer to ask the couple, “Do you want me to play it for you? ?”

“We were all impressed!” said Parkin. “Then he just sat down and started playing. He was absolutely sweet.”

In a clip of the impromptu performance, Martin is casually dressed in a black long-sleeved shirt, trousers and sneakers after just performing at Glastonbury Festival.

He sits in front of a wooden piano with his Guinness beer behind him and chats with the couple, again asking for their names and their wedding date.

Parkin said Martin — who was married to Gwyneth Paltrow from 2003 to 2016 — offered some marriage advice.

“Make sure you listen to her partner,” the “Fix You” singer said, per Newsflare.

“We laughed and joked,” Parkin added. “Chris said he’d love to stay and have another drink, but they had to go – so they went!”

The pub’s landlord, Chris Parkin, said he didn’t recognize Dakota Johnson, but the “girls in the kitchen were more impressed with her.”

The landlord said everyone was “so in the moment” and Martin “made it so easy by being such a great guy.”

He concluded: “I think Chris Martin is a star – it’s probably because we left him alone and he wanted to say thank you. What a day!”
