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.

Newcastle Racecourse (Gosforth Park) was a new venue for County Durham Wedding DJ to provide our professional Wedding Disco service.  We cover the whole of the North East (not just County Durham) and we’re regularly performing in the Tyneside area.

On this occasion, we were booked by Carley & Alan (pictured right) for their wedding reception disco at Newcastle Racecourse at High Gosforth Park as the newlyweds didn’t want to hire the Resident DJ.  They took the option to research the right DJ for their party and they decided that County Durham Wedding DJ was their preferred option.

The happy couple selected a song by Jason Mraz called ‘I Won’t Give Up’ as their memorable first dance song and you can see that special part of their wedding day in the video (above).  As for their other music choices, they left that mainly down to us and we used their request for ‘a good mix of music’ to play for the different ages and groups of people attending their wedding.  They also sent through a small list of their favourite songs that we used that to fit their selections in throughout their party.

A short time after their big day, Carley & Alan got in touch with us and sent us their thoughts on the part we played on their wedding day:

We would like to thank County Durham Wedding DJ for a fantastic and memorable evening at Newcastle Racecourse on the 11th July 2015.

All songs, which we requested. were played and there was a fantastic mix of old and new music which kept everyone up on the dance floor all night.  The first dance video and photos which he provided us with were excellent!  We would definitely book again and recommend to friends and family if they are ever in need of a professional DJ to provide the music at their venue.

Kind Regards,

Mr & Mrs Kelly
