Whitworth Hall Hotel in Spennymoore was chosen by Emily & Sean (pictured) to host their wedding celebrations and the County Durham Wedding DJ team was brought in to make their party memorable and fun. We’ve been to the Best Western Whitworth Hall Hotel many times over the years and it’s always a pleasure to go back to the County Durham wedding venue.
Our remit from Emily & Sean was to play a wide selection of music that would encourage their guests to get up and dance. There was, of course, a selection of their favourite songs and special occasion songs, such as their first dance as husband and wife.
If you view the video footage from the celebration, you’ll see that the happy couple and their guests were all set for a night of partying and, most importantly, dancing to the songs they liked (through requests) and songs that we felt that the crowd would enjoy.

Slaley Hall Hotel is situated in the picturesque countryside of Hexam in Northumberland and the County Durham Wedding DJ team were hired by Samantha & Stephen (pictured) to provide our professional Mobile Wedding Disco service for their special day.
This was our first venture to the luxury hotel that is very popular for weddings, parties, conferences, golf and for those in need of a good pampering. We worked closely with the happy couple to find out what they wanted for their big day, what their guests liked and to get a general feel of the music that they felt was a good starting point to create a memorable party.
The couple selected ‘At Last’ by Etta James as their first dance as husband and wife. They then felt it was good to have a follow-up song and chose ‘I Loved Her First’ by Heartland – as seen in the accompanying video.
The other music suggestions for the party were carried out and our general remit was to play a good selection of songs from across the decades as there is often a wide range of ages in attendance at family events.

County Durham Wedding DJ was called upon to provide a great night of entertainment at Redworth Hall Hotel. Our team has been to this establishment many times over the years as not every couple booking the venue wants to use the services that it puts before their customers. Some couples want more and are also ready to do their homework. They also want the option to choose the DJ they want for their wedding day and that’s exactly what Stephanie and Daniel (pictured) did when they hired County Durham Wedding DJ.
The newlyweds were quite specific regarding their choices of music and provided us with a comprehensive selection of songs that they wanted playing on their special day. They trusted us to make sure we had their selections and to stitch the music together to form a seamless passage of music to get people up to dance.
Stephanie and Daniel selected Michael Buble’s ever popular ‘To Love Somebody’ as their first dance as husband and wife (as seen in the video). They also wanted to end their evening wedding party with Bon Jovi’s ‘Have A Little Faith.’
The happy couple provided a list of great songs and, in an effort to try to cater for as many people as possible, we were also given the remit to broaden the music choices so that guests of all ages had a chance to dance to their genres of music.

Durham Castle is a fantastic venue with some magnificent surroundings in the hear of Durham City in County Durham. The County Durham Wedding DJ team are always overjoyed to work in such grand surroundings with the professional staff at the brilliant wedding reception venue.
On this occasion, we were hired by Stephanie & Glenn (as featured in the video and pictured) to provide our high class, professional and reliable Wedding DJ/Disco service on their special day. The happy couple felt that the package we offered them was the best option for them on their memorable wedding day. Not only were we there for their wedding day, but back in 2012 we were also proud to provide the entertainment at Durham Town Hall where the couple held their engagement party, as the couple explains in an e-mail they sent to us after their big day:
We first booked Michael for our engagement party back in 2012 and were very impressed by the service we got. The dance floor was never empty and the atmosphere was great.
So, without a doubt, we would book them for our wedding in July 2017.
Again, we can’t thank Michael and County Durham Wedding DJ enough for a great after party atmosphere. Everyone had a wonderful time and our “first dance” moment was truly special.
Thank you Michael and Team.
From the new Mr & Mrs Taylor
The newlyweds selected Take That’s ‘Rule The World’ as their first dance song as husband and wife. They had a good think about what they would like to follow that special son and they opted for two upbeat and happy songs to kick the entertainment off:
- Pharrell Williams – Happy
- Bruno Mars – Uptown Funk
One of the key elements of the service we provide to couples looking to hire a professional DJ is the ability to listen to their needs and to put their thoughts in place. Stephanie & Glen spent time to go through their favourite songs to help us personalise the music we played. They also got to grips with what their friends and family members may appreciate and get up to dance to. So, with the background information on their choices and a great selection of other music genres and artistes, we set about entertaining everyone at the wedding reception.
Gaining the background information from our customers helps us to tailor the event and it gives us a great opportunity to create a fantastic party atmosphere.

Crook Hall & Gardens is a wedding venue that has appeared in our diary many times over the past year or so and County Durham Wedding DJ is getting quite accustomed to being chosen over their Resident DJ to provide our experienced and professional Wedding DJ service at the venue.
This time, it was Leigh & Gavin (pictured dancing with some of their guests) who decided that we were the option that ticked all of their boxes when it came to selecting a Wedding DJ to provide a great party atmosphere and get their guests celebrating their wedding. The happy couple also had their initials in giant illuminated letters and this is a service that County Durham Wedding DJ can provide – we usually get asked for the Giant Illuminated LOVE Letters as that is our most popular request from couples looking to hire the Mr & Mrs Giant Illuminated Letters.
Many people see the first dance as something special and memorable. Leigh & Gavin decided to have Jason Mraz and ‘I Won’t Give Up’ as their first dance song as husband and wife.
The couple wanted us to play a varied selection of popular songs and we stuck to their suggestion on their special day. Much to the surprise of the newlyweds, we even got the grandparents up dancing, as per the fantastic feedback we received after their wedding reception at Crook Hall and Gardens:
Just want to say a huge thank you to Michael our wedding DJ. He was fantastic and the music selection was perfect. The dance floor was never empty & he even got my grandparents raving away!
Absolutely brilliant Michael, you were exactly what we wanted.
I would highly recommend booking County Durham Wedding DJ for any event.
Many Thanks Again,
The New Mr & Mrs Cattanach
Leigh & Gavin

Crook Hall & Gardens is a wonderful venue that is really making its mark in the busy wedding reception venue market. County Durham Wedding DJ has provided our professional Mobile DJ/Mobile Disco and other wedding services at this venue in the centre of Durham City. We’ve performed at Crook Hall and Gardens several times and have created many happy memories on such an important day like a wedding.
On this occasion, we were booked by Robyn & Craig (pictured) as they were looking for an Independent Professional DJ to take charge of providing the disco for their special day. They decided not to book the Resident DJ and felt that we, County Durham Wedding DJ, were the best option for them.
The couple lased with us on the run up to their big day and they wanted a wide selection of popular songs that would get their guests in the party mood. So, we stuck to their remit and made sure that we catered for all ages and played songs that would encourage people up to dance from all genres of music.
For their first dance, the newlyweds selected Lonestar’s ‘Amazed’ as their first dance song and you can see that part of the evening in the video.
We look forward to returning to Crook Hall & Gardens in the near future and we look forward to bringing our professional Wedding DJ/Wedding Disco service to that fine North East venue that’s gaining a great reputation for hosting weddings and other events.
Rather than us tell you how good the evening reception went for the happy couple, this is what they sent us a short time after their wedding day:
We booked County Durham Wedding DJ having met them at a wedding fayre. The guys struck us as being both professional and personal.
On the day itself they were excellent, playing all of our requests, and made sure we and our guests had an excellent night. I would recommend County Durham Wedding DJ to anyone, very experienced guys, reliable and very well priced.

The Blackwell Grange Hotel in Darlington is a venue that the County Durham Wedding DJ team have been to many times over the years and we have bookings for this fine North East venue in the diary for years to come. We were hired to bring our Professional Mobile DJ/Mobile Disco service to the wedding reception party of Christine & David at Blackwell Grange Hotel.
County Durham Wedding DJ is not the Resident DJ at the hotel, but couples have continued to exercise their right to find and hire an independent DJ for their wedding reception at the hotel and that’s why we’ve attended and performed at many events at Blackwell Grange Hotel.
In this instance, Christine & David (pictured) felt that the service and professionalism offered by County Durham Wedding DJ was just right for their needs on such a memorable and important day in their lives. They asked us to play a wide selection of music as they knew that their guests came from all ages and had different tastes in music. The couple also selected a first and second dance that you can view in the video:
First Dance: Train – Hey Soul Sister
Second Dance: Heartland – I Loved Her First

The Morritt Hotel at Greta Bridge near Barnard Castle in County Durham is a venue that the County Durham Wedding DJ team attend on a very regular basis, you’ll see from our Wedding Reviews (Morritt Hotel) section of our website that we have numerous examples of the professional party services that we have conducted that the North East venue. County Durham Wedding DJ is not the Resident DJ at the venue, but it often feels like that as we have quite a few bookings for the hotel.
On this occasion, we were hired by Hollie & Richard (pictured) for their wedding reception party at The Morritt Hotel at Greta Bridge. As well as bringing our Mobile Disco/Mobile DJ service to the Barnard Castle hotel, the happy couple also hired our Projector Hire Service where we installed and collated their favourite images into a slideshow that was on display throughout their evening party.
The remit on the music front was for the County Durham Wedding DJ team to play a wide selection of music to get the guests to put their dancing shoes on and celebrate the marriage of Hollie & Richard. The other important and memorable song for the couple is, of course, their first dance and if you view the video, you’ll see that they selected Ben Folds with ‘The Luckiest’ as their first dance song.
As we have other bookings for The Morritt Hotel, we look forward to extending our professional Wedding DJ/Wedding Disco service to existing and future couples who have hired the venue to host their wedding reception party.

County Durham Wedding DJ made one of our regular visits to a venue that has put us on their preferred suppliers list – The Eden Arms Hotel at Rushyford in County Durham. We are their Resident DJ/Resident Mobile Disco provider and the management and staff are happy to recommend us to couples who hire that venue for their wedding celebrations.
This time, it was the decision of Michelle & Campbell (pictured) to take on-board the suggestion of using County Durham Wedding DJ on their memorable day and as well as providing the music for their party, we were also hired to use our Giant Illuminated LOVE Letters. If this is a service that you’d be interested in, please head over to our dedicated LOVE Letters page to find out more.
The newlyweds selected Joe Cocker with ‘You Are So Beautiful’ as their first dance song as husband and wife. They also provided us with a short list of their favourite songs and music selections that they wanted to be played on at their party and we obliged.

As a preferred supplier and highly recommended by the management and wedding coordinators at The Eden Arms Hotel at Rushyford in County Durham, we are hired to provide our professional wedding disco service at the fine venue many times each year. Feel free to take a look through just some of the great reviews and testimonials from couples who have taken the sage advice of the Eden Arms Hotel staff and hired County Durham Wedding DJ for their special day.
In this instance, we were hired by Michelle & Michael (pictured) to play a part in their memorable day. The newlyweds decided to hire us over all the other many DJ companies in the North East and every time that happens, it makes us proud to provide our wedding entertainment services to each one of our customers.
For their first dance, the happy couple selected a song by Birdy called ‘Wings’ and you can see them in the video, along with some additional footage and a montage of images that we took at their wedding reception party. The couple asked us to play a wide range of music and we stitched together an appropriate collection of songs that we believe, through experience, would encourage the guests to dance and party the night away.
Shortly after their wedding, Michelle & Michael got in touch with us to give us their thoughts on the service we provided:
Just had our wedding disco at the Eden Arms (in) Rushyford. What a great night it was. The music played was a mixture of up to date chart plus 80s & 90s. It was good for all ages.
The DJ was great, the dance floor was never empty.
Thank you Michael for a great disco.
Michelle & Michael Purdham
