Well this Anglo-French collaboration went down a treat as English Jack married his French sweetheart Nora.
They were bound to pick a French inspired venue in the English countryside @LePetitChateau which never disappoints.
A real mixed bag of music with Something Old' Something New, Something French, Something Arabic, Something Salsa and Something Rock.
As always i pull out all of the stops to make sure that the Bride and Groom have a strong influence over the choice of music I play.
A first dance to the Flamingo's "I Only Have Eyes for You" carefully choreographed into the Isley Brothers "That Lady".
With a mix of English, Arabic and French guests it was always going to be tricky to bring together the diverse music tastes and boss the dance-floor.
Ram Jam made an appearance, Jimi Hendrix, Derek and the Dominoes, Gregory Porter, Fleetwood Mac and some distinctly French, Arabic and Latin vibes were in there too definitely not your average wedding playlist.
An Anglo French collaboration the likes of which we have not seen since the development of Concorde and the building of the Channel Tunnel.
Many congratulations to a fabulous couple Jack and Nora .... Vive La France.
Dan and Caroline fell in love with Woodhill Hall after Caroline and her bestie visited the venue and then told Dan where he was going to get married ... well to be fair Dan loved it as well.
A cracking day from start to finish and the rain held off just long enough to spoil any part of the day.
I provided all day music support and Master of Ceremony Services in my own inimitable style. The celebration required 3 separate set ups seamlessly orchestrated to keep the celebration moving along on schedule.
Dan and Caroline used every part of the venue to make their wedding extra special with the Elephant Garden being used for guest to gather before the wedding before moving into the Orangery for the Wedding Ceremony and the Wedding Breakfast before moving into the Tepee for the evening wedding reception.
The evening wedding reception kicked off with a welcome for the couple into the Tepee followed by a cake cutting and the first dance.
John Legend was on hand to provide the music for the first dance with his song Stay With You.
There was an absolutely incredible atmosphere throughout the night with the dance-floor rammed from early in the evening through to the early hours of the morning.
Dan and Caroline could not have hoped for a better night full of dancing and singing leaving them with some awesome memories of their fantastic wedding celebration.
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr and Mrs O'Neill

John and Ellie chose the fabulous Ellingham Hall near Alnwick in Northumberland as the location for the wedding ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening wedding celebration.
Despite the predicted rain the sun came out making it a perfect day in so many ways.
They chose a cover of You Got a Friend in Me by Amber Leigh Irish as their first dance to get the night underway.
Ellie chose to have a dance with her dad also called John to James Taylor "How Sweet it is to be Loved By You".
The music for the night consisted of Pop, RnB, Big hits from 2005 - 2010, Indie, Pop, party classics and some Clubland tunes finishing the night with an Oasis Classic after John created his own Champagne Supernova on the dance-floor.
An absolutely banging night full of dancing and singing and a great way to celebrate the marriage of this well matched couple.
Massive congratulations to the brand new Mr and Mrs Paul all the very best for the future xx
Well that Wendt Well.
Fabulous night for Daniel and Sarah who celebrated their wedding in awesome style at Horton Grange.
The night kicked of with a big introduction into the evening wedding reception to fantastic applause, a cake cutting and into the First Dance Ed Sheeran's Photograph which we followed up with Santana and Smooth at the request of the Bride and Groom.
A good dose of pop, cheese some party classics and a big bunch of requests meant the dance-floor was rocking pretty much from the first dance.
Great working alongside the multi talented Dan Clark Photography who showed his youth wasn't wasted on learning the dance moves to Whigfield's Saturday Night which meant he got to lead the guests who had never witnessed such confident moves.
Lots and lots of crowd surfing and a bit of advice for the ladies its always best to wear your knickers as you never quite know when you might be thrust into the air against your will.
An absolute belter of a night getting married life off to the best possible start for the brand new Mr and Mrs Wendt.
After the party Sarah had this to say "I Could not recommend Ian enough, helped make our wedding amazing from start to finish from preparing music for our church ceremony and reception to having the dance floor filled all night. Couldn’t have had the night we did without him he’s given us the best memories and hundreds of pictures to go with it."
Well its not a venue that immediately jumps out at you but once inside Northumberland Hall is a magnificent building and very grand indeed unmatched .
Situated in the heart of historic Alnwick, the Grade 1 listed hall was built by the third Duke of Northumberland in 1826 is a beautiful venue to hold your wedding.
Dawn and her family had dressed the room themselves and they did an incredible job.
Well this one has been a long time coming with Barry and Dawn being together for over 25 years with a grown up family who all played a major part in the day with their daughters lining up as their bridesmaids and 14 year old son Sam stepping up to the plate as Best Man.
Proud father Frank walking Dawn down the aisle despite some walking difficulties. Some touching words of thanks from Dawn in an emotional speech.
Poignant speeches from some of the couples best friends who known them the majority of their lives.
A first dance to John Legend's - All of Me and finishing the night with You'll never walk alone.
Situated in the heart of Alnwick Town Centre, Northumberland Hall is right in the market square and without any provision for onsite parking and of course parking restrictions throughout the town centre, loading in and out is a bit of a logistical nightmare for suppliers. Particularly testing on the day of the Northumberland Pride celebrations and road closures in the centre of Alnwick.
None of this could stop Barry and Dawn tying the knot after waiting this long.
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr and Mrs Newton.
Anth and Holly chose the ever popular Le Petit Chateau for their wedding celebration.
A fabulous venue which has everything going for it so you can easily see why its so popular.
Acoustic piano music to kick the day off and some carefully selected and edited tunes were chosen for the ceremony.
A latin vibe for the drinks reception with the only thing missing a bit of sun.
Calming things during the wedding breakfast with a selection of acoustic covers ,,, well that was until the singing waiters turned up to disturb the relative calm and get the party underway.
The night kicked off with the cake cutting followed by a first dance to John Legend's You and I
A brilliant night of dancing and singing at the Le Petit Chateau for yet another amazing wedding at this fabulous venue.
Many congratulations to Anth and Holly one of the many amazing couples I get to work closely with.
All the very best for the future to the new Mr and Mrs Henderson
Holly had this to say afterwards "Ian thank you so much for being so fantastic! We had the most magical day & we can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us. You went over & beyond ... we are so grateful & we were so lucky to have you!! We can’t recommend you enough. You’re the best DJ ever x"
Anthony said this "We booked Ian with the hope of having some good music for the evening element of our wedding reception. What we got what was so much more! Firstly Ian is one of the loveliest people you could ever wish to meet, a real top top guy. Not only did he do a fantastic job of getting everyone dancing on the night time, he helped us with every element of our music throughout the day. Making great suggestions, pulling together playlists, even editing songs to make the timings fit. He was unbelievable - he even let us use his iPad to play the music through the day even without him there! The amount of time and effort Ian put into making sure our day was perfect was just amazing and we cannot recommend him enough. Ian we can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us we were absolutely blown away, and we’ll definitely be using you again. Love Anth and Holly x"
