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.
