Matt and Laura chose the Riverside Bar at the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art as the location for their wedding celebration with stunning views across the Tyne and the Millenium Bridge just a stones throw away.
Their wedding ceremony was held at the Laing Art Gallery.
Guests had travelled from far and wide notably Ireland and Lincoln to join in their fantastic wedding celebration.
An early set up meant a nice relaxed start to the evening.
We kicked the evening off with the cake cutting followed by the First Dance with a nice little surprise mashup of Ellie Goulding How Long Will I Love You into House of Pain Jump Around and it went down a storm and from 7.15 through till 1am we had a busy old dance floor all night.
Lots of requests flying in on some strategically placed and quirky song request cards.
A medley of Irish classics for the Irish contingent a little later on and we even managed to fit an impromptu karaoke in.
Cracking night all round.
Laura said afterwards "Don’t look anywhere else for a DJ! Ian was our wedding DJ last week and our family and friends commented that it was the best night they had in years! Ian got the perfect balance of songs and had the dance floor full all evening. He even put together a mash up for our first dance 🥳 His professional friendly approach was so greatly appreciated and the extra value he provided to us with an album full of photos and videos was an unexpected delight. Ian- you are an absolutely top bloke, a cracking DJ and we are so grateful for the role you played in our special day" 💜
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr & Mrs Cunningham.
Alex and Stephanie chose the fabulous Newton Hall as the venue to host their wedding and as always it did not disappoint. Such a lovely venue with fabulous grounds.
Got to work with Dead Man's Shoes an acoustic duo who performed two sets and performed their version of James Arthur's Say You Won't Let Go as the first dance which was on the clouds.

I provided the music before during and after Dead Man's Shoes providing a nice contrast and blend to the music and entertainments over the night.
A fab day and night all round.
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr and Mrs Garrow and all the very best for the future.
Well a new venue for me this one @newclosefarmevents near Durham with some absolutely superb views from the site of the Teepee.
After some heavy rainfall it made for an interesting climb up the bank but with some advice from the landowner I managed to negotiate the particularly slippy bit.
Some of the best and well delivered speeches I've ever heard from friends and family with some fitting tributes to Tom and Issy some funny stories and anecdotes.
Working with some of Tom and Issy's guests who improvised the newly formed Issy Pop band and they provided the music for the first dance.
A super night in the heart of the Durham countryside and many congratulations and all the very best for your future lives together go to Tom and Issy.
A fabulous night for Reece and Rebecca who celebrated their wedding at Horton Grange Country House Hotel with family and friends.
A first dance to the Lighthouse Family's High, a father daughter dance for Gary and Rebecca with to Britney and I'm not a girl not yet a woman and a bouquet toss to the ever popular and very appropriate Beyonce and Single Ladies.
Nana Bessie getting in on the action and busting a few moves to her favourite Elvis Presley.
Gary turned the night into a karaoke masterclass with renditions of many a classic as the night went on.
A good old mix of all sorts to keep everyone happy and the dance-floor bustling all night.
The sun even came out for a bit after a rather damp start to the day, all's well that ends well.
Many congratulations to a lovely couple Rebecca and Reece the new Mr and Mrs Johnston.
A fantastic night raising money for an amazing charity Jessica's Sarcoma Awareness.
A Greatest Showman and Circus themed night with all of the drama and excitement of the Big Top

A stunning dance performance by Jess and a tear jerking video tribute put together by Nicole for her sister Jessica who she lost 5 years ago, there wasn't a dry eye in the house.
Trevor doing what he does best as the Ringmaster and Greatest Showman.

Brian and Angela chose the fabulous Horton Grange Country House Hotel as the location for their wedding reception and as usual it did not disappoint.
The sun came out making it a tremendous day and evening for the guests to enjoy the gardens and patio area when they were at their absolute best.
I helped Brian and Angela put together all of the music for their day after a detailed consultation with them and they had some very clear ideas on the music they liked an also some views on what they really didn't want played with Oasis finding their way onto the banned list.
Brian and Angela bust some moves to Scooters 4AM just after the first dance much to the delight of their guests.
Brian later took to the dance floor with his daughter Tamzin.
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr and Mrs Collins.

Many congratulations to Graham and Lynda showing their love for each other in a way that suited them.
Graham and Sarah chose the fantastic Vallum Farm near Matfen in Northumberland as their chosen venue at which to hold their wedding reception and it certainly did not dissapoint.
It was an absolute belter of a night at the superb Vallum Farm and a venue you can actually use haze to bring out the best in your lights and add to the atmosphere.
It was a hot night outside but even hotter on a packed dance-floor from start to finish.
Many thanks to the fabulous Ryan who kicked the evening into gear with his enthusiastic dancing to Steps 5,6,7,8 which even Sarah was happy with after banning Steps from the playlist ha ha.
A mix of 90's dance, trance, clubland and pop as well as some classic rock, R&B and indie hit the mark with the wedding revellers.
No first dance but the there would have been no last dance if the guests had their way they would have gone all night.
Great start to married life for the brand new Mr and Mrs Butterfield Top Top Night!

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.
Michael and Faye chose the fabulous Black Horse at Beamish for their Wedding and Wedding Reception.
Music from the wedding breakfast into the evening celebration was provided by the lovely Amy a vocalist accompanied by her acoustic guitar and electric piano.
Amy also provided the music and vocals for the first dance a lovely rendition of Fleetwood Mac's Songbird.
Michael a die hard Sunderland fan with tickets for the Checkatrade Cup Final the next day at Wembley meant an early finish to the night was inevitable.
A fab night for a lovely couple.Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Sherrington

I had the pleasure of being selected as the Wedding DJ by Chris and Rebecca for their Wedding Celebration at Crook Hall and Gardens in Durham City in County Durham.
A wedding meeting several weeks before the wedding allowed me to get a clear idea of the Bride and Groom's hopes and expectations for their wedding.
Together we created a plan reflecting the music choices and key spotlight moments with a timeline set against it.
The planning is always an important part of ensuring you have a successful wedding reception, without this too much is left to chance on the most important day of your life.
As hoped for this was an an absolutely top drawer wedding party for Chris and Rebecca at the quirky Crook Hall and Gardens tucked away in Durham City Centre.
Kicking the night off with the beheading of the caterpillar wedding cakes a particular favourite of mine.
A First Dance to Frankie Valli and the original version of Can't Take My Eyes Off You got the night off to a great start and it just took off from there.
A good mix of tunes in line with the Bride and Groom's wishes incorporating some classic rock, 90's pop, indie, some dance classics and the best of the current hits.
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr & Mrs Liddle who are off to a fantastic honeymoon destination on Monday.
