Matthew and Amanda chose the fabulous Artisan Restaurant at the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle as the venue for their wedding.
The night got off to a great start with the cake cutting, with a choice of several cakes including my favourite the chocolate caterpillar, this was followed by an upbeat first dance to Walk the Moon's Shut up and Dance which Matthew and Amanda duly obliged with their guests joining in.
A real mixed bag of music including a small number of must have tracks, some guests requests and a small number of do not plays,
The dance-floor kept moving from the off till the Midnight Hour ending the night in style with Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes and Had the Time of My Life.
Super night all round and I think I managed to pronounce the Groom's name right by the end of the night.
"Really glad my wife and I booked Ian for our wedding. He really takes care of you and works on the details to help the night run smoothly. We gave him a short list of musts and must not but the rest of the night he just kept the dance floor moving. His mixing is on point, provides great lighting and even works a camera between tracks. Couldn't have asked for more! Thrilled mate. Thanks Ian from both of us! " Matthew Chijioke😀
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr & Mrs Chijioke
What an absolutely fantastic day for Paul and Lauren at Le Petit Chateau.
With the sun shining and the temperature hitting tropical heights this provided the perfect backdrop to an amazing day.
I provided the music throughout the day from the arrival of the first guest to the end of the evening at Midnight.
No less than four separate set ups with carefully crafted music and playlists chosen by Paul and Lauren themselves to provide the perfect musical accompaniment to their special day.
Lots of amazing and emotional moments throughout the day, the grand entrance was special, the first dance to Ronan Keating's When you say nothing at all, Lauren's dance with her dad Chris and some really funny and some very touching moments throughout the speeches.
Some blind panic from the Bride as the Groom managed to slip in one of his tracks into the play list a bit of grunge metal, not for the faint hearted.
Great working alongside staff Le Petit Chateau, One Digital Image and 2Tone Photography
Many congratulations and all the very best for the future to the new Mr & Mrs Rose-Troup
Chris and Laura chose Backworth Hall near Newcastle to tie the knot with its fabulous gardens and views over the golf course.
A great night where everybody got into the spirit of the wedding, anyone would think it was nearly Christmas.
And eclectic mix of music featuring some 90's dance classics, pop and some big hits from the 80's as well as the latest charts.
I supported the couple with all of their music requirements throughout the day including the prelude, ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast.

Best mates Richard and Dave hired me to DJ at their joint 40th Birthday Party with music from the 90's to roll back the years to their University Days.
The first time I've visited the venue as a DJ and to provide a Disco with some very positive feedback from the venue staff.
You know its been a good night when you should have finished at 12am and its now 1.30am and the party is still going on at South Northumberland Cricket Club in Gosforth Newcastle .
A double celebration for mates Dave and Rich celebrating 40 years.
Rolling back the music to the 90's with many classics from 1993 through to 1999 in the mix.
Another Ian helping out with a few tunes on the guitar with lyrics from whatever and wherever.
Many congratulations to Andy and Laura who chose The Treehouse at The Alnwick Garden for their wedding.
A 5 O'clock wedding with an early set up a played through from the prelude till just after midnight so I could justify the chosen last song of the night ... Shakin Stevens Merry Christmas Everyone well it is December.
A very slick operation to keep the celebration running and turn the venue round from ceremony to wedding breakfast to evening party in double quick time.
A magical setting for any wedding and it certainly didn't disappoint.
A super wedding with some fantastic moments.
"Cannot recommend Ian highly enough. He obviously loves what he does and it really shows. He was absolutely fantastic at our Wedding yesterday and has been so helpful throughout the entire planning process. Thank you so much!" Laura Holland

Jamie and Amy chose @kirkleyhall as the venue for their wedding celebration.
The groom, best man and groomsman all choosing to wear a traditional kilt and why not given there was a large Scots contingent at the wedding from Jamie's Homeland in this Anglo-Scots Union.
Little Alfie also joined in with his kilt too and loving his Audi A3 with the Just Married sign and cans on the back .. so cute.
A First Dance to Perfect by Ed Sheeran and Beyonce preceded by a cake cutting with U2 and A Beautiful Day providing the backdrop.
The dancing was off to an early start with a mix of current charts, indie and clubland classics and cheese with a few controversial Scots anthems thrown into the mix.
A special request to play a song so the guests could do the "Slosh" and Daniel Boone Beautiful Sunday was the song requested.
I provided and IPad with carefully selected playlists agreed with the couple to cater for the daytime music needs. The couple had booked a pianist for the wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast.
Congratulations to the new Mrs and Mrs Lowe and all the very best for your future together.

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.
