Whitworth Hall Hotel in Spennymoore was chosen by Emily & Sean (pictured) to host their wedding celebrations and the County Durham Wedding DJ team was brought in to make their party memorable and fun. We’ve been to the Best Western Whitworth Hall Hotel many times over the years and it’s always a pleasure to go back to the County Durham wedding venue.
Our remit from Emily & Sean was to play a wide selection of music that would encourage their guests to get up and dance. There was, of course, a selection of their favourite songs and special occasion songs, such as their first dance as husband and wife.
If you view the video footage from the celebration, you’ll see that the happy couple and their guests were all set for a night of partying and, most importantly, dancing to the songs they liked (through requests) and songs that we felt that the crowd would enjoy.

Slaley Hall Hotel is situated in the picturesque countryside of Hexam in Northumberland and the County Durham Wedding DJ team were hired by Samantha & Stephen (pictured) to provide our professional Mobile Wedding Disco service for their special day.
This was our first venture to the luxury hotel that is very popular for weddings, parties, conferences, golf and for those in need of a good pampering. We worked closely with the happy couple to find out what they wanted for their big day, what their guests liked and to get a general feel of the music that they felt was a good starting point to create a memorable party.
The couple selected ‘At Last’ by Etta James as their first dance as husband and wife. They then felt it was good to have a follow-up song and chose ‘I Loved Her First’ by Heartland – as seen in the accompanying video.
The other music suggestions for the party were carried out and our general remit was to play a good selection of songs from across the decades as there is often a wide range of ages in attendance at family events.

County Durham Wedding DJ was called upon to provide a great night of entertainment at Redworth Hall Hotel. Our team has been to this establishment many times over the years as not every couple booking the venue wants to use the services that it puts before their customers. Some couples want more and are also ready to do their homework. They also want the option to choose the DJ they want for their wedding day and that’s exactly what Stephanie and Daniel (pictured) did when they hired County Durham Wedding DJ.
The newlyweds were quite specific regarding their choices of music and provided us with a comprehensive selection of songs that they wanted playing on their special day. They trusted us to make sure we had their selections and to stitch the music together to form a seamless passage of music to get people up to dance.
Stephanie and Daniel selected Michael Buble’s ever popular ‘To Love Somebody’ as their first dance as husband and wife (as seen in the video). They also wanted to end their evening wedding party with Bon Jovi’s ‘Have A Little Faith.’
The happy couple provided a list of great songs and, in an effort to try to cater for as many people as possible, we were also given the remit to broaden the music choices so that guests of all ages had a chance to dance to their genres of music.

Durham Castle is a fantastic venue with some magnificent surroundings in the hear of Durham City in County Durham. The County Durham Wedding DJ team are always overjoyed to work in such grand surroundings with the professional staff at the brilliant wedding reception venue.
On this occasion, we were hired by Stephanie & Glenn (as featured in the video and pictured) to provide our high class, professional and reliable Wedding DJ/Disco service on their special day. The happy couple felt that the package we offered them was the best option for them on their memorable wedding day. Not only were we there for their wedding day, but back in 2012 we were also proud to provide the entertainment at Durham Town Hall where the couple held their engagement party, as the couple explains in an e-mail they sent to us after their big day:
We first booked Michael for our engagement party back in 2012 and were very impressed by the service we got. The dance floor was never empty and the atmosphere was great.
So, without a doubt, we would book them for our wedding in July 2017.
Again, we can’t thank Michael and County Durham Wedding DJ enough for a great after party atmosphere. Everyone had a wonderful time and our “first dance” moment was truly special.
Thank you Michael and Team.
From the new Mr & Mrs Taylor
The newlyweds selected Take That’s ‘Rule The World’ as their first dance song as husband and wife. They had a good think about what they would like to follow that special son and they opted for two upbeat and happy songs to kick the entertainment off:
- Pharrell Williams – Happy
- Bruno Mars – Uptown Funk
One of the key elements of the service we provide to couples looking to hire a professional DJ is the ability to listen to their needs and to put their thoughts in place. Stephanie & Glen spent time to go through their favourite songs to help us personalise the music we played. They also got to grips with what their friends and family members may appreciate and get up to dance to. So, with the background information on their choices and a great selection of other music genres and artistes, we set about entertaining everyone at the wedding reception.
Gaining the background information from our customers helps us to tailor the event and it gives us a great opportunity to create a fantastic party atmosphere.

The Blackwell Grange Hotel in Darlington is a venue that the County Durham Wedding DJ team have been to many times over the years and we have bookings for this fine North East venue in the diary for years to come. We were hired to bring our Professional Mobile DJ/Mobile Disco service to the wedding reception party of Christine & David at Blackwell Grange Hotel.
County Durham Wedding DJ is not the Resident DJ at the hotel, but couples have continued to exercise their right to find and hire an independent DJ for their wedding reception at the hotel and that’s why we’ve attended and performed at many events at Blackwell Grange Hotel.
In this instance, Christine & David (pictured) felt that the service and professionalism offered by County Durham Wedding DJ was just right for their needs on such a memorable and important day in their lives. They asked us to play a wide selection of music as they knew that their guests came from all ages and had different tastes in music. The couple also selected a first and second dance that you can view in the video:
First Dance: Train – Hey Soul Sister
Second Dance: Heartland – I Loved Her First

The Morritt Hotel at Greta Bridge near Barnard Castle in County Durham is a venue that the County Durham Wedding DJ team attend on a very regular basis, you’ll see from our Wedding Reviews (Morritt Hotel) section of our website that we have numerous examples of the professional party services that we have conducted that the North East venue. County Durham Wedding DJ is not the Resident DJ at the venue, but it often feels like that as we have quite a few bookings for the hotel.
On this occasion, we were hired by Hollie & Richard (pictured) for their wedding reception party at The Morritt Hotel at Greta Bridge. As well as bringing our Mobile Disco/Mobile DJ service to the Barnard Castle hotel, the happy couple also hired our Projector Hire Service where we installed and collated their favourite images into a slideshow that was on display throughout their evening party.
The remit on the music front was for the County Durham Wedding DJ team to play a wide selection of music to get the guests to put their dancing shoes on and celebrate the marriage of Hollie & Richard. The other important and memorable song for the couple is, of course, their first dance and if you view the video, you’ll see that they selected Ben Folds with ‘The Luckiest’ as their first dance song.
As we have other bookings for The Morritt Hotel, we look forward to extending our professional Wedding DJ/Wedding Disco service to existing and future couples who have hired the venue to host their wedding reception party.

County Durham Wedding DJ made one of our regular visits to a venue that has put us on their preferred suppliers list – The Eden Arms Hotel at Rushyford in County Durham. We are their Resident DJ/Resident Mobile Disco provider and the management and staff are happy to recommend us to couples who hire that venue for their wedding celebrations.
This time, it was the decision of Michelle & Campbell (pictured) to take on-board the suggestion of using County Durham Wedding DJ on their memorable day and as well as providing the music for their party, we were also hired to use our Giant Illuminated LOVE Letters. If this is a service that you’d be interested in, please head over to our dedicated LOVE Letters page to find out more.
The newlyweds selected Joe Cocker with ‘You Are So Beautiful’ as their first dance song as husband and wife. They also provided us with a short list of their favourite songs and music selections that they wanted to be played on at their party and we obliged.

As a preferred supplier and highly recommended by the management and wedding coordinators at The Eden Arms Hotel at Rushyford in County Durham, we are hired to provide our professional wedding disco service at the fine venue many times each year. Feel free to take a look through just some of the great reviews and testimonials from couples who have taken the sage advice of the Eden Arms Hotel staff and hired County Durham Wedding DJ for their special day.
In this instance, we were hired by Michelle & Michael (pictured) to play a part in their memorable day. The newlyweds decided to hire us over all the other many DJ companies in the North East and every time that happens, it makes us proud to provide our wedding entertainment services to each one of our customers.
For their first dance, the happy couple selected a song by Birdy called ‘Wings’ and you can see them in the video, along with some additional footage and a montage of images that we took at their wedding reception party. The couple asked us to play a wide range of music and we stitched together an appropriate collection of songs that we believe, through experience, would encourage the guests to dance and party the night away.
Shortly after their wedding, Michelle & Michael got in touch with us to give us their thoughts on the service we provided:
Just had our wedding disco at the Eden Arms (in) Rushyford. What a great night it was. The music played was a mixture of up to date chart plus 80s & 90s. It was good for all ages.
The DJ was great, the dance floor was never empty.
Thank you Michael for a great disco.

The Eden Arms Hotel at Rushyford in County Durham hosted the wedding celebrations for Melanie & Terry (pictured). We regularly provide our professional Wedding DJ/Wedding Disco services at this fine hotel as the venue staff/management see the amount of effort, quality of service and reliability we provide to our customers. It is for for that reason that we are on their list of preferred suppliers.
Melanie & Terry selected Lonestar with ‘Amazed’ as their first dance song and opted to have a second song of David Bowie’s ‘Modern Love’. The couple also provided us with a small list of their favourite selections and we made sure that we played them at an appropriate time.
The happy couple also wanted a good selection of music for their wedding reception entertainment and that’s exactly what we played on the second half of their special day.

Shotton Hall is situated in Peterlee in County Durham and Katie & Anthony (pictured with some of their family members) chose this local authority run venue to host their wedding day celebrations. County Durham Wedding DJ was brought on-board to provide our professional Mobile Disco service for the happy couple.
Peterlee Town Council have a lovely venue that’s used for weddings, events, conferences, seminars and town/council business. It is located on the outskirts of Peterlee between the towns of Durham and Hartlepool and near to the A19.
The newlyweds selected County Durham Wedding DJ to provide the entertainment at their event, as opposed to using any Resident DJ or Disc Jockey that the venue may highlight. They felt that we could provide the service, skills and experience to deliver a great night on such a memorable and important part of their wedding day. We are always proud when customers feel that we are the right wedding supplier for their special day.
Katie & Anthony gave us the remit to play a wide selection of popular songs in an effort to make sure that as many guests as possible will have a selection of their favourites played. Weddings are a family event and they often need a diverse selection of appropriately chosen songs to get the guests in the mood for a great party. This is something that County Durham Wedding DJ is well experienced in as we have provided our service throughout the North East for more than two decades.
The newlyweds selected Ellie Goulding with ‘Love Me Like You Do’ as their first dance song as husband and wife and you can see that special moment in the video.
We look forward to future bookings at Shotton Hall in Peterlee and we look forward to fielding other enquiries from couples who have chosen the venue to host their wedding day.
