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

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.

County Durham Wedding DJ provided a wide selection of services for Rachel & Martin’s wedding reception at Judges Hotel, Kirklevington in Yarm (pictures below). The happy couple not only wanted a first class mobile disco for their party, but they also used us for their Mood Lighting, the Chocolate Fountain, and their Chair Covers. You could say that we provided an all-round package at a great price for the newlyweds.

We’ve been to Judges Hotel a number of times, but it was great to showcase many of our most popular services in one go in the Courtyard Suite (Stables Bar). Rachel & Martin added to the package by selecting additional laser lighting and the smoke machine – we don’t usually take a smoke machine because of the fire alarms installed in many function rooms.

The first dance consisted of The Verve Pipe – Colourful (video below) and that was followed with their second dance of Santana & Rob Thomas – Smooth. The couple and their guests had a varied taste in music, so like many family events, such as a wedding, we played a wide spectrum of music to cater for all tastes.

The Mood Lighting was set to pink and that worked well with the pink sashes on the chair covers. The pink and white theme was also extended to their wedding cake and the tower of cupcakes (pictured above).

The newlyweds sent us some fantastic feedback when they got back from their honeymoon:

“My Wife and I would just like to thank you for your INCREDIBLE services on our wedding day (August 9th 2012).

You provided an absolutely amazing package. Everything was great including the Chair Covers, Mood Lighting, Disco, lights, lasers, smoke machine and the Chocolate Fountain.

We can honestly say we could not have asked for a better day! From our first meeting with you, you made us feel at ease and you really took the time to understand what we were wanting on our special day.

Everything you supplied was first class and really set the atmosphere!

Our guests are still telling us how much they enjoyed the day and how it went so smoothly, (the chocolate fountain went down a treat! :) Many also commented on how fun and interactive the disco was, we couldn’t have asked for better entertainment! You were extremely reliable, professional and went out of your way to make sure our day was the best it could be!

We can not thank you enough for everything you did! Thank you so much for helping make our special day so perfect!

We will definitely be recommending your services in the future!

All the best Michael!

Martin & Rachel Doyle”
