The County Durham Wedding DJ team have made numerous visits to The Morritt Country House Hotel to provide our Mobile Wedding Disco services to couples who have selected that fine venue at Greta Bridge, near Barnard Castle in County Durham.

On this occasion, we had the pleasure of being selected to provide our Professional Wedding DJ service at the reception of Amy & Gareth.  As well as providing some of the entertainment on their big day, they also booked the additional service of our Giant Illuminated LOVE Letters.  The couple, along with some of their wedding party, loved the letters so much that they had their pictures taken in front of them (pictured below).

Amy & Gareth had an acoustic version of Jason Mraz’s ‘I Won’t Give Up On You’ as their first dance, a song from Heartland called ‘I Loved Her First’ as their second dance and Nickelback’s ‘Photograph’ as their third dance.  The happy couple wanted a mixture of music to cater for the many different ages of their guests and that’s exactly what we brought to their evening wedding reception.

The couple hired County Durham Wedding DJ as we have a great reputation for providing a first class service and they also wanted our Giant Illuminated LOVE Letters.  It is for these reasons that they chose not to go with any Resident DJ / Resident Mobile Disco.

Langley Castle Hotel was chosen by Samantha & David (pictured) to host their wedding reception and evening party/disco.  The couple hired County Durham Wedding DJ to take care of their entertainment needs and we were also brought in to add a splash of colour to their function room at the historic castle that was built in 1350.

We brought our professional wedding disco service to Langley Castle Hotel at Hexam in the picturesque Northumberland and we installed our Mood Lighting package in the Stuart Suite at Langley Castle Hotel.  The newlyweds selected blue for the ambient LED Lighting Effects as that was a great match for their chosen colour-scheme and it brought out some of the features of the function room.

Samantha & David also pushed out the boat and hired our giant (five foot high) illuminated ‘LOVE’ Letters to accompany the Mood Lighting and the mobile disco service that was brought in for the second half of the wedding day.  We were hired in to provide the three wedding services services at Langley Castle Hotel and the couple had considered using the Resident DJ at Langley Castle Hotel, but they booked the service provider that they felt was best for their needs – County Durham Wedding DJ, of course!

For their first dance as husband and wife, the couple selected Ellie Goulding’s ‘How Long Will I Love You.’  The rest of the party was made up of a selection of requests from our customers, their guests and a wide selection of popular songs to get people in the celebratory mood.  The happy couple selected County Durham Wedding DJ because they felt that we were the right company to provide the entertainment on their special day, we could supply the Giant Illuminated LOVE Letters and also because they didn’t want to hire the Resident DJ at Langley Castle.

Samantha & David contacted us shortly after their special day and praised the services and work that we put into making their wedding day such a memorable occasion.  Here’s what they had to say:

We booked County Durham Wedding DJ for our wedding at Langley Castle on 1st of May.  Right from the start Michael was lovely and really easy to get along with.  I had been worried about the fact that our wedding reception was on the third floor and with no big lift up to it, some DJs just wouldn’t entertain us.  Michael however was really nice and said it wouldn’t be a problem (but I bet it was hard work getting all the stuff up them stairs with only a service lift available).

The music on the night was fab.

We also hired the giant “LOVE” letters and the room up lighting in blue which was absolutely gorgeous, it really made the room look even more beautiful and everyone commented on how great it looked.  Michael also took some photos and a video for us which he later posted out, so thoughtful.  He done a fantastic job and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Thanks again,

Mr & Mrs Swithenbank

County Durham Wedding DJ played a major part in the successful running of the LRS Events Wedding Fair at Newcastle Civic Hall.  As well as exhibiting our fantastic range of services to prospective couples looking for their perfect suppliers or wedding products, we also took charge of the main event – the catwalk show with a wide range of wedding attire.

We worked closely with LRS Events to make sure the music to accompany the show went without a hitch and that there was a great description of the clothing on show.  The attendees got a great chance to see and meet some of the wedding suppliers who cover the North East of England (and probably beyond).

County Durham Wedding DJ compered the event and worked closely with the event organiser, the models, the suppliers and the venue staff.  We were also able to really show off our Giant Illuminated LOVE Letters as they were a great backdrop to the catwalk show.  The visitors were also attracted to our Giant Illuminated Mr & Mrs Letters and the bookings for those additional services are flooding in.  We had a fantastic opportunity to speak to couples who wanted to play an active part in finding the right DJ for their event.

Please take a look at a small selection of images from the fair (below) or the video slideshow (above):

Wedding Fairs like the one at Newcastle Civic Hall really give us the chance to speak to potential customers and to promote the advantages of hiring an independent Professional Wedding DJ for their special day.

Our thanks go out to Gary James for his assistance and we look forward to seeing you at one of our forthcoming wedding fairs.

County Durham Wedding DJ was at Langley Castle Hotel in the Stuart Suite with one of our new extra services – our Giant Illuminated LOVE letters (approximately five feet tall).  The popular wedding reception venue in Hexham in Northumberland was booked by Julie & Stuart and they wanted us to add something really special to their function room.

They decided to book the resident Mobile DJ for their wedding disco, but we had the pleasure of taking our Giant Illuminated LOVE letters to enhance their reception.  The happy couple decided that the best place for the illuminated letters was at the end of the dance floor and we think that was the perfect location as they looked great!

Take a look at the pictures of the newlyweds posing beside the Giant Illuminated LOVE letters (below) from their function room at Langley Castle Hotel to see what we mean.
