We work in some great locations throughout the North East of England, providing a professional Wedding Disco service to many newlyweds each year.  County Durham Wedding DJ was chosen to provide the party music at Beamish Hall Hotel in County Durham.  The venue is situated a very short drive from Beamish Museum and it hosts a number of function rooms that hold wedding receptions (Mounboucher Room, Eden Suite and the Winter Gardens).  Of which, we were providing the disco in the Monboucher Room of the hotel.

It’s usually down to the DJ to kick the entertainment off and get people up dancing after the First Dance, but in this case the party atmosphere started with the first dance from Jo & Chris.  You’ll see from the video (below) that they really made a big effort to get the evening reception off to a brilliant start.

Most couples have a shuffle while gazing into the eyes of their partner for their first dance and there’s nothing at all wrong with that.  Jo & Chris didn’t want that and they must have sought guidance from the Internet and from other couples because they had something very different and unique for their first dance as husband and wife.  We are sure that you will enjoy the video of that special moment and we’d encourage you to watch the recording from the beginning to the end – it really will be worth it!

Like many couples who are planning their wedding day, Jo & Chris had a selection of songs that they wanted, songs that their friends and family would like and also asked us to play any appropriate songs that were requested on the night.  The couple really knew what songs would help create a party atmosphere and it was our skills as a DJ that were used to stitch the requests into a workable order.

Here’s what Jo & Chris Wright had to say after their big day:

“We’d just like to say a HUGE thank you to Michael and his team for providing a fantastic DJ service.  Everyone really enjoyed the evening and Michael made sure he kept everyone on the dance floor with the great music.

Michael was happy to play everything requested on our playlist and also took requests from guests on the night – to ensure everyone was kept happy.

I can strongly reccommend County Durham wedding DJ for any wedding of any size.

Communication with Michael before our special day was easy and he was more than happy to respond to all our questions and queries – we could not have chosen a better DJ.

Thank you for making our evening so much fun and so memorable. All the photos you took were an unexpected added bonus which was great for us as we got to see everyone having fun when all the guests cameras had been put away for the night.

Thank you again…for everything!!!

Jo & Chris Wright”

The night at Beamish Hall got off to a great start and we kept the music flowing and the dancers active.

County Durham Wedding DJ made another return visit to Beamish Hall Hotel that’s situated just down the road from the famous Beamish Musesum.  We’ve been to this hotel a number of times over the years and it really is a popular venue for couples to hold their wedding reception and we always enjoy providing the wedding disco.

This time we were booked by Helen & Tony to provide the entertainment for their evening wedding reception upstairs in the Eden Suite at the hotel.  We also had the pleasure of working with Brian, the in-house Master of Ceremonies at Beamish Hall Hotel who did many of the announcements during the day and once the formalities were over, we took over to provide the party atmosphere for the rest of the evening function.

The happy couple wanted to make sure that there was something appropriate for their guests, so they wanted a broad spectrum of music from across the decades.  This is a music policy we are more than happy to accommodate because it’s a family event with a very wide range of ages in attendance.  We always take the guidance and feedback from our customers to help formulate the music policy for the disco.

For their first dance as husband and wife (video below), Helen & Tony wanted one of their favourites: Pearl Jam – Just Breathe

Looking at our diary, it won’t be long until we’re back at Beamish Hall Hotel providing the music for the wedding reception disco.

The newlyweds sent us their comments on the great job we did for them at Beamish Hall Hotel:

“We couldn’t have asked for more from County Durham Wedding DJ!

From booking with Michael, to the end of our wedding night at Beamish Hall Hotel the service we received was second to none.  Communication running up to the wedding was straightforward and prompt.  He included all of the songs we requested and played exactly the type of music we were looking for, while also playing music to keep everyone dancing the night away. He perfectly avoided the ‘cheese’ factor and was professional and really helpful all night.

The recording of our first dance and the photos was a lovely surprise, we wouldn’t hesitate to use Michael again or recommend his services to our friends.

Thanks so much once again,

Helen & Tony”

It’s been a very busy period for County Durham Wedding DJ when it comes to working at Beamish Hall Hotel.  We’ve worked in many of the main function rooms where weddings are held.  These include the Monbouche Room, Winter Garden, Eden Suite and Shafto Hall.

Janine & Carl opted to use the Shafto Hall at Beamish Hall Hotel for their wedding reception and they hired us to provide the disco for their special day.  The newlyweds wanted all of their guests to have a good time and to take part in their marriage celebrations.  So, they asked us to provide a wide selection of music to cater for all tastes and take requests.

Beamish Hall Hotel is one of the most popular venues to host a wedding reception or other event and we’re proud that their customers keep booking us to provide a mobile disco for their party.

The couple had plenty of praise for us and they sent us this fantastic feedback:

“Firstly, we would like to say a big thank you to County Durham Wedding DJ for making our wedding evening so memorable at such short notice.  The choice of music kept the dance floor full all night and are guests very impressed.

From start to finish, the communication and input from Micheal has been second to none.  He was fantastic and very professional.  We would highly recommend and will definitely be using for other functions.

Without a doubt County Durham Wedding DJ is a winner all round.

Kind regards,

Janine & Carl Barnes”

Beamish Museum is famous for portraying the history of the North East of England, but not many people know that the museum is also a great location for a wedding reception.  There’s a growing trend for traditional themed weddings and Beamish Museum is a perfect location to fit in with the popular trend.

County Durham Wedding DJ was booked by Di and Neil (pictured right) to provide the Wedding Disco for their special day.  The happy couple selected the Cutting Crew with I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight as their first dance as husband and wife (video below).

As well as having a short list of their favourite songs, there was a special song for their son, Oliver, who loves Hit The Road Jack by Ray Charles.

A stones throw from Beamish Museum is Beamish Hall Hotel.  The hotel is a venue that County Durham Wedding DJ has been to many times before and the newlyweds stayed at Beamish Hall Hotel on their wedding night.

Beamish Museum is certainly a novel and very appealing location to host a wedding reception and we look forward to working in there again.

Following the wedding celebrations at Beamish Museum, the newlyweds sent us this feedback:

“My wife and I would like to give a huge thank you to County Durham Wedding DJ for the part that they played in making a great night at our wedding reception at Beamish Museum. They played some great music and included all the songs we had requested.

I would recommend them for any party and would use them again if we needed a DJ in the future.

Professional and helpful from first enquiry through to last dance.


Di & Neil”
