The North East of England has some fantastic venues and places to hold a wedding reception and County Durham Wedding DJ has attended a wide variety of hotels, stately homes, bespoke/boutique wedding venues and also events held on private grounds in marquees.

We were booked by Angela & Jonny (pictured right) to provide the disco for their wedding reception party in the picturesque countryside of Weardale.

The happy couple gave us a very good idea of the music they wanted and we incorporated their favourites into the evening celebrations.  They knew exactly what their family and friends would dance to and it was our job to play those songs in the right order and at the right times.  We think we got it spot on because from the word go through to the final song of the night, the dance floor was a hive of activity.

For their first dance, Angela & Jonny selected a power ballad/80s rock from Roxette – Almost Unreal.  You can see the footage from that part of their party in the video above.

Charlotte And Chris Got Married at Headlam Hall followed by reception at Barnard Castle. The couple hired a huge marquee with a chequered dancefloor. They had Moodlighting (LED Uplighting), Chocolate Fountain and Wedding Balloons that are available to hire from us (see: Wedding Extras section).

Their happy couple selected Rod Stewart and his version of ‘Have I Told You Lately’ as their First Dance. The newlyweds were joined by the wedding guests mid way through their special song.

My customers sent in a small playlist of their favourite songs, these included a selection of tunes for the children who also danced to a special song for the bride and groom. The rest of the event was left in my capable hands and I made sure that a wide selection of songs were played to cater for the wide range of guests.

It was a great night, everyone enjoyed themselves and the father of the bride stated if they needed a disco in the future they would not hesitate to contact me.
