After doing Chloe's 18th Birthday 3 years ago I was asked back to DJ at her 21st Birthday Party, oh how the time flies.
Not a beach theme this time but a rumble in the jungle.
Lovely venue and superb buffet at Rialto's in Ponteland.
A great night for Chloe surrounded by family and friends with some fantastic outfits on display.
Happy 21st Chloe xx
Steve and Karen chose the very grand Beamish Hall in County Durham, set in fantastic grounds as the dream location for their wedding.
A very personal wedding ceremony for Steve and Karen featuring readings from family and friends and a candle ceremony involving the couple and their respective mothers. Karen was given away by her brother Andrew and the Best Man was the groom's son Tiernan who did a fantastic job.
I assisted throughout the day with the music from the start of the day until the very end of the day along with Master of Ceremony Services.
All of the music for the day had a direct input from the couple.
The processional song was a cover of Koadline's The One by John Adams and Matt Johnson.
The Recessional Song was Karen's late father's favourite song which I edited for maximum effect.
A First Dance to Ellie Goulding's - How Long Will I Love You.
End of the night song was Hermes House Band - Country Roads.
A super day for a fabulous couple.
The sun shone for the perfect backdrop to Ryan and Rebecca's wedding at the fabulous Horton Grange Country House Hotel in Northumberland.
I met with Ryan and Rebecca and prepared a music plan for their whole wedding day.
They started the day as guests arrived with acoustic piano covers.
Then for the ceremony:
For the drinks reception there was a good mix of upbeat celebratory songs including soul, motown and swing
The soundtrack to the wedding breakfast was a mix of acoustic cover songs featuring artists like Boyce Avenue.
The evening celebration got underway with a rousing welcome followed by a cake cutting and First Dance to the Perfect by Ed Sheeran and Beyonce.
A good mix of music ensured there was something for everyone including a song by the Brides brothers group. Mr Brightside a special song for both the Bride and Groom.
Lots of 90's pop and clubland classics also featured and winding up the night as requested to the Dirty Dancing Megamix.
Afterwards Ryan had this to say "Booked Ian for our wedding night time do. He also done all of the music for the entire day and has the added bonus of taking pics on the night time which is a nice way to look back at the party. I cannot recommend him highly enough."
Fantastic night and many congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Graham

Another fabulous wedding at one of the North East's best and most exclusive wedding venues Newton Hall, Bold, Romantic & Fantastical
A first dance to UB40's Can't help falling in love followed by an eclectic mix of music featuring 90's dance classics, deep house, current charts and a spattering of party classics.
Jim and Elaine were on hand with some good advice after celebrating 41 years of marriage on the same day and rolled back the years with their tune Lionel Richie's Endless Love.
Finishing the night with Hot from Inna.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Richards

A beautiful venue was chosen by Jamie and Sophie for their wedding which has just benefited from the addition of the fabulous Gazebo where the wedding ceremony was held at Northside Farm.
Everything about the day was perfect the sun even came out and after a 14 hour shift i felt mission accomplished but wrecked at the same time :-)
I provided the music throughout the day including the prelude, ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and washed hired to DJ at the evening Wedding Reception party. I provided the Master of Ceremony Services throughout to keep the day flowing nicely.
Some unusual touches with a Peaky Blinders theme with the Groom, Ushers and Father of the Bride donning a tweed suit and the familiar Peaky Blinders Caps.
Sophie was accompanied up the Aisle by her dad Mark and their two dalmations.
A processional song of the Peaky Blinders theme Red Right Hand was unusual and a little dark, signing songs from the Brothers Osbourne and Lady Antebellum and an edited recessional for maximum impact from Wandering Hearts "Till the day I die".
Funny and touching speeches by Mark, the groom Jamie, best Man Henry and Jamie's sister Amy.
Sophie suitably embarrassed by the video from yesteryear of her performing with her plastic microphone as Emma Bunton to Stop ... and sang it much the same as her Spice Girl heroine ... badly :-)
A first dance to Chris Stapleton - Tennessee Whiskey as the couple not only enjoy the outdoors but country music too.
A fantastic celebration surrounded by family and friends even Betsy and Blanch had taken a night off from the bingo to be there. Sophie retired early after the day got the better of her.

Hi Ian. Just want to say a huge thank you for making our wedding so fantastic. We danced all night and you went above and beyond for us.
Brilliant night all around with lots of love in the room for the happy couple.
Some fab comments from the couple and guests as well as staff from @HortonGrangeHotel
Many congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Martino.
Gillian had this to say "Hi Ian. Just want to say a huge thank you for making our wedding so fantastic. We danced all night and you went above and beyond for us."
Great night celebrating the marriage of David and Natalie at Doxford Barns.
All of David and Natalie's music for the day and evening were put together in conjunction with the couple themselves.
Pretty much a full dance-floor all night right from the off. Super night for a super couple!
David had this to say "Ian loves what he does and makes it look easy. From start to finish he was thorough and communicative. The day went perfectly and thanks to his accommodating approach the day went better than we could have ever imagined. Get him booked for your big day, you won’t be disappointed!"

After a wedding in Las Vegas Marc and Natalie continued the celebrations with a party for family and friends at the BALTIC Centre For Contemporary Art at Gateshead Quays.
A specially prepared mix of the couple's first dance hit the mark.
A make shift bouquet from the front of my DJ Booth saved the day for the bouquet toss.
A cracking night with a strong emphasis on R&B, House and some clubland classics.
Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Bainbridge.
"I can’t recommend Ian enough! From the moment we met and discussed our playlist we knew he’s was going to be great! From mixing our first dance to make it unique for us to playing every song we asked for and more! Also the pictures Ian took through the night captured some special moments for us! Thanks so much Ian you made our night" Natalie Bainbridge
Another fantastic night at the Northumberland Tennis Club in Jesmond Newcastle.
I was booked again to be the DJ at this fantastic night at a great little club tucked away in Jesmond.
I played a great selection of soul, funk and disco classics as the guests arrived at a low volume.
After the hot buffet I raised the volume and the tempo and kicked the night into full swing with a packed dance-floor all night with lots of music suggested by the guests themselves.
The Us Active Charity raise essential funds to offer of sports and physical activities to empower young people to transform their lives.
A cracking night with great music, buffet and raffle at a super venue and all in aid of a good cause what's not to like.
