Alex and Kirstie took full advantage of the fantastic February weather to hold their wedding ceremony outside on the decking at the amazingly quirky and unique Alnwick Treehouse.
Kirstie's processional song was the ever popular John Legend All of Me and Kirstie and Alex left the ceremony as a married couple to Beba Rexha and Florida Georgia Line's Meant to Be.
This wedding had a distinctly international feel with many of Alex's friends and family travelling from Romania to see his marriage to English Rose Kirstie.
Drinks reception and canape's were served in the potting shed and on the decking as guests enjoyed the weather and the views.
The guests moved into the Treehouse for the wedding breakfast to return to the potting shed later for the evening Wedding Reception.
A First Dance to Darius Rucker and a blend of Romanian, Latin, R&B and pop dominated the evening party taking in lots of requests along the way.
Another awesome wedding celebration with yours truly providing the music from the start till the end along with the Master of Ceremony Services and managing three separate set ups in a virtually seamless transition.
Congratulations and all the very best to a fabulous couple Alex and Kirstie
Kat and Mikayla travelled to Le Petit Chateau in Otterburn Northumberland to tie the knot and celebrate their marriage.
A double bouquet toss from the beautiful brides followed by a choreographed First Dance to Pink's Raise Your Glass.
An eclectic mix of music throughout the night and plenty of requests from the guest who were all up for a party.
Fabulous celebration and many congratulations to Kat and Mikayla.
As a Wedding DJ I just love weddings like this where the guests are really up for a party.
Mikayla had this to say:
"Ian was absolutely amazing and had the dance floor busy all night. Played something for everyone and got in all of our key songs. Could not recommend highly enough. Thank you for helping to make our day so special!"
Stephen and Bethan chose As You Like It in Jesmond, Newcastle as the venue for their wedding and evening wedding reception.
A first dance to James Arthur and Anne-Marie Rewrte the Stars kicked the night off which also included a Cake Cutting and Bouquet Toss.
As a Wedding DJ you never quite know what songs will really resonate with the guest well for Bethan and Steve the real winners were the party dance action songs.
Lots of requests and a night full or upbeat cheesy songs were the order of the night.
A fab night was had by all.
Congratulations to the brand new Mr and Mrs Ouetting.
Bethan and Steve had this to say:

Daniel and Karis celebrated their wedding with family and friends at the fabulous Eshott Hall.
I prepared all of the day time music including the prelude, wedding ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and during the room changeover.
A mix of 90's pop, indie, R&B and a bit of cheese on top was the order of the day for the Evening DJ Set at the Wedding Reception Celebration Party.
Highlights included a first dance to Kodaline - The One and a father daughter dance to Michael Bolton - Fathers & Daughters and a Mr & Mrs Shoe Game organised by the Chief Bridesmaid also went down a treat.
A fab night was had by all. Many congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Scott who had this to say:
"Ian was our Wedding DJ and was amazing from even before we booked him. We can't recommend him enough!
His professionalism in his approach to providing a personalised quote really meant he stood out from the rest. The quote itself was also very reasonable.
He was very responsive when we had anything to query in the run-up and we met about a month beforehand where he put our minds at ease knowing the music was in safe hands! At this point we went through what music we wanted at each stage of the day and he demonstrated his knowledge with his very good suggestions and opinions.
Ian not only DJ'd the night but he provided all the music for the rest of the day on an iPad for the venue to just press play, including editing some tracks!
In terms of the night, he kept the dancefloor busy by judging people's reactions to different song types. He did a tremendous job of keeping the evening flowing and everyone commented on what a great night it was!
Thank you so much!"
Frankie and Lauren chose the Lord Crewe Arms at Blanchland to host their wedding celebration.
A slightly unconventional wedding with Frankie and Lauren having some very clear ideas what they wanted.
A chilled out relaxed atmosphere from the start kicking off with a drinks reception, then the wedding breakfast followed by a 7pm wedding ceremony and then an incredible party from the outset.
Frankie from Irish roots who married English Rose Lauren so it provided a great contrast in the music selections.
It was a pleasure to work closely with three other outstanding professionals as well as the staff at Lord Crewe Arms Blanchland who were an absolute pleasure.to work alongside.
Special mention to Kevin Neary Music who travelled from Dublin who did an awesome set featuring some Irish Classics, to John Gatenby Music who did an incredible job with drinks reception and the ceremony music and a fabulous set featuring some English Classics and to Dan McCourt. who captured the event on photographs that will make my snaps look even more amateur than they already are.
As the wedding DJ I got to play some great tunes knitting it altogether with a smaller set up than usual but popping some uplighting in the reception lounge and party venue to add a touch of sophistication and warmth.
Brilliant super awesome and what a start to married life for the New Mr and Mrs Kenny ... many congratulations.
Ben and Katherine had a mixed group of guests of all ages and wanted a good variety of music to cater for everyone’s tastes.
Some of the guests were staying overnight at the venue and hotels close by others were travelling home.
They chose the Fig House at Middleton Lodge Estate near Richmond.
I put together playlists for the drinks reception and wedding breakfast.
The couple chose some of their own music and invited their guests to put forward some suggestion as well.
It turned out to be an absolutely fantastic night from the First Dance never a moment when the Dance-floor wasn't bouncing.
Lou Reed's Perfect Day was appropriately chosen as the song for the first dance.
A bit of all sorts including the weirdest wedding request ever bearing in mind its nowhere near Halloween ... Bobby Picket and the Monster Mash which surprisingly lots of people danced too.
There were also lashings of cheese the perfect complement to the wedding breakfast and evening buffet.
On the Do Not Play list a few wedding favourites
Pharrell Williams - Happy, John Legend, Bruno Mars, James Arthur, Ed Sheeran, Shut up and Dance, Fast car, Maroon 5 and the Macarena
Many congratulations to Mr and Mrs Hodgkinson.
An absolutely beautiful venue in the heart of County Durham was chosen by Alex and Gareth for their wedding with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.
The Black Horse at Beamish certainly didn't dissapoint.
I put together a series of playlists for the Alex and Gareth to use for their day time music covering the prelude as the guests arrived, the wedding ceremony, drinks reception and the wedding breakfast.
To ensure a smooth transition into the evening party I set up the disco the night before along with some uplighting in pink to create a warm striking contrast to the drapes of the marquee.
The wedding disco playlist was an eclectic mix of songs chosen by the couple with some special songs selected for some of the guests and of course supplemented with requests to the DJ on the night.
Ben E King - Stand By Me a Motown classic was chosen as the first dance.
Last song of the night Frank Sinatra - New York ,New York
A fab celebration all round and many congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Hoole.
