The Hall Garth Hotel was the chosen wedding reception venue for Aprille & Richard and County Durham Wedding DJ was hired in to create a great party atmosphere. The couple decided not to hire the Resident DJ and hired us, along with our Mood Lighting package in purple.
The couple selected the incredibly popular Ed Sheeran and his song ‘Thinking Out Loud’ as their first dance and you can see that memorable point in the night in the video (below). As there was a heavy Scottish contingent, we played a selection of songs to get them in the mood. For example, the video (below) shows how energetic and excited the Scots can get when you put Runrig and ‘Loch Lomond’ on for them.
As for the other music selections, that was down to us – the only guidance we had was to play a wide selection of music and to cater for all the different age groups. This is one of the most important aspects of entertaining people at a wedding reception and getting the right music on at the right time is a skill you learn over time.
County Durham Wedding DJ operates throughout the North East and the Hallgarth Hotel is a venue we appear at several times a year and it just goes to show that couples who hire a venue don’t always go for the Resident DJ option. Some couples do their homework and pick the right DJ for them, as opposed to being told or forced to use a certain supplier.
