The Eden Arms Hotel at Rushyford in County Durham has made County Durham Wedding DJ one of their preferred suppliers and we were happy to provide a mobile disco for Michelle & Greg (pictured right) for their wedding reception party at that venue. The hotel recommends us to couples looking to hire a professional wedding DJ for their special occasion and we are proud to be their Resident DJ.
Michelle & Greg chose County Durham Wedding DJ and we worked with them to find out what music they wanted and to make sure we had any special or memorable songs. The happy couple selected Bette Middler and her powerful rendition of ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’ as their first dance song and there was a very special song that was played a little later in the evening. That song was very special to the family members of the groom and dancers got up to one of Take That’s hits – ‘Back For Good.’
We discovered that the couple wanted a varied selection of music for their wedding disco and we set out to do just that.
To add an extra level of effect or impact on the evening celebrations, we provided our Mood Lighting service and blue as that was the colour chosen to add a splash of colour to The Eden Arms Hotel. You can see the effect the Mood Lighting service can add to your event and also some footage from the wedding reception in the YouTube video (above).

There are many fine colleges that make up the prestigious Durham University and County Durham Wedding DJ has had the pleasure of providing our professional mobile disco service to many of those colleges. We were booked by Deb & Neil (pictured right) to be their Wedding DJ and they selected the College of St Hild & St Bede of Durham University as the venue to host their wedding party.
The couple hired County Durham Wedding DJ because we take on requests in advance and we try our very best to play them at the right time. They were very particular about the music they wanted as they’d been to many parties and hadn’t appreciated the music provided at those events, so we tailored the music to their needs as they liked many bands and singers that fell into the ‘Indie’ or ‘Alternative’ music categories.
As well as finding out what our customers want, we also seek information on what they don’t want and Deb & Neil were not fans of any novelty songs, bubblegum pop (their words) or the back catalogue of music from Stock, Aitken & Waterman. In correspondence leading up to their wedding day, the couple said that they hoped they weren’t too demanding: “…we’ve been to that many wedding discos that we know what we have and haven’t enjoyed.” So, with that information at hand, we were able to avoid any tracks that fell into their ‘do not play’ categories.
As you’ll see from the video the happy couple selected Louis Armstrong’s version of ‘La Vie En Rose’ as their first dance song.
We were also able to enhance the decor of the room by adding our Mood Lighting service and Deb & Neil selected pink and we added a splash of colour to the venue for them.
