An absolutely top drawer night for English Rose Charlotte who got bowled over with Barry's Irish Charm with guests travelling from far and wide to join in the absolutely amazing celebration at the fantastic @doxfordbarns.
Nothing traditional about this wedding with Barry and Charley applying their own style and touches to the wedding.
No first dance instead a barn dance celebration which got the guests dancing and looking just a bit confused by the instructions but they thoroughly enjoyed that with the music used being carefully chosen by the Bride and Groom in memory of a loved one. Wel done Mike Jevons the caller for organising this.
We managed to slip in a bouquet toss to girls just want to have fun and ended the night with Take That's Never Forget. This will certainly be a night Barry and Charley won't forget.
I slipped a few Irish classics into the mix which hit the mark with the Irish contingent from the Emerald Isle and these went down an absolute storm with some classic Riverdance moves in there too.
Barry and Charley said this afterwards "Thank you so much Ian! Absolutely brilliant night. Everyone today has been talking about how great the music was. You nailed it. You were everything we wanted and more. Thanks again for helping us to make our special day all that more fantastic!"
Great working alongside top guy and super photographer @DannyBirrellPhotography.
Congratulations to the brand new Mr and Mrs Coughlan all the very best for the future and thanks for inviting me to such a brilliant night.
A magical day at the ever fabulous Woodhill Hall for the wedding of Matt Lee to Annie.
Matt and Annie were joined by guests from far and wide including some die hard Sunderland i.e. Annie and Newcastle Fans including Matt himself so amongst the harmony of marriage there was some intense North East Football rivalry.
I provided the music from the arrival of the first guests through to the end of the night.
Annie's processional song was Turning Page (instrumental) by Sleeping At Last and the recessional song chosen was Michael Buble - everything.
During the day which also happened to be Annie's birthday so an opportunity was taken to wish her a happy birthday with a surprise birthday cake brought in by Matt as part of the evening party.
A first dance to Coldplay's "A Sky Full of Stars" went down a treat and finishing the night with Queen's Don't Stop Me Now
Lots of old school disco and a mixed bag of tunes and requests formed the backbone of the playlist with a ban on any cheese and chava dance tunes.
A fantastic day and night all round.
All the very best for the future to the brand new Mr and Mrs Lee
It was a surprise 60th Birthday Party for Gill who was caught off guard at the Brewery Tap in Gateshead.
The Brewery Tap @gnebbrewerytap is a hidden little gem in Dunston with some superb friendly staff. Just a small set up for me taking advantage of the inhouse lighting and the Nexo pa system
With family and friends awaiting her arrival Gill was taken back by the welcome she received after all this was supposed to be a motown night.
Some carefully selected tunes comprising a lot of old school disco along with some of Gill's favourite soul and motown tracks.
Happy Birthday Gill xx

Jonny and Linzi chose the historic Crook Hall and Gardens in the heart of Durham City for their wedding celebration.
The weather just about held out for everyone to enjoy the beautiful gardens at Crook Hall.
Linzi doing her own thing and looking fab in a non traditional wedding dress.
Jonny and Linzi determined to enjoy the space decided to have their cake cutting and first dance outside under the canopy on a slightly chilly and damp autumn night.
Well it worked a treat as they had their first dance under the stars to Fleetwood Macs Love in Store and it was obvious Jonny had been practising ... i'm not sure what he had been practising but it wasn't his dance moves :-) He certainly wowed his guests though.
Not to be outdone a second first dance was organised indoors to UB40 just because they can.
A wide selection of music including some Ska favourites, pop and some rock.
Again the gardens were used for the serving of oven baked pizza's for the evening buffet.
Had some budding DJ's on the decks who seemed to enjoy playing with the effects and the mic, thought I'd bagged a couple of roadies to help with my gear but they were nowhere to be seen at the end of the night.
Fab night for a really lovely couple.
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr & Mrs Nelson.
