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.

Some beautiful summer weather greeted the guests at Graham and Lynda's celebration after making a life long commitment to each other allowing the guests to enjoy the fabulous garden and patio area @TheParlourBlagdon.
A lovely evening in this intimate venue providing the perfect backdrop to the party.
A First Dance to Lonestar's Amazed.
Lots of dancing and singing with some fantastic acrobatics provided by the younger guests.
Just a few of the photo's taken on the night.
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!

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"
Gemma and Ben chose the fabulous Doxford Barns as the location for their dream wedding.
Doxford Barn is a lovely self contained wedding venue with the Threshing Hall where the wedding ceremony is held, the Cart Shed where the drinks reception is held and the Great Barn where the wedding breakfast and evening celebration take place. There's also some nice outside areas if the sun comes out which it did just for Gemma and Ben.
Three separate set ups were required as I provided the music for the prelude, wedding ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening wedding reception as well as Master of Ceremony Services
Vocalist Ashleigh Humble provided the entertainment during the room changeover with a fabulous acoustic set.
Key song choices were:
An entrance in to the wedding breakfast to Simon and Garfunkel - Mrs Robinson
A first dance mashup to Lumineers - Hey Ho and Marianas Trench - Stutter to which Ben and Gemma did a fantastic choreographed dance routine much to the delight of their guests.
Ending the night with Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes - Had the Time of My Life.
An absolutely super day throughout with lots of love in the room for the happy couple.
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr and Mrs Robinson.
#DoxfordBarnsDJ #AlnwickWeddingDJ #WeddingDJNorthumberland
Well this was my first visit to the Plough in Alnwick and it didn't disappoint.
A lovely room with a central staircase for that dramatic bridal entrance with a mezzanine floor giving guests a clear view of the dance-floor area with a nice secluded bar for those wishing for a more relaxed evening.
It's easy to see why John and Paula chose this as their dream wedding venue.
Key songs were Paula's processional song the ever popular Christina Perri and a "Thousand Years" with the American Authors "Best Day of My Life" the song to chosen as the recessional song for the new Mr & Mrs Herron.
A first dance to Aerosmith and "I don't wanna miss a thing" with a bouquet toss to Beyonce and of course "Single Ladies"
A super night for a lovely couple many congratulations to the brand new Mr & Mrs Herron.

Daytime play lists prepared and provided via Spotify direct to the venue,
An early start to the evening with a cake cutting and first dance at 6pm to Ed Sheeran and Perfect and finishing the night with Queen and Don't Stop Me Now.
An eclectic mix of music throughout the night chosen by Lance and Susan with a fair few requests thrown into the mix including Johnny B Goode, Car Wash, Calvin Harris, Earth Wind and Fire, Rose Royce, Avicii and more besides.
A fab night for a super couple many congratulations to the brand new Mr and Mrs Allen.
A packed wedding celebration for Mark and Kim last night at Le Petit Chateau featuring Cake, Cutting, First Dance, Bouquet Toss, Father and Daughter Dance and a Mr & Mrs Shoe Game.
And as if that wasn't enough a Mark Giblin Art caricaturist was on hand to sketch the guests at the wedding and a photo-booth to capture guests in some crazy attire.
The sun came out and stayed out despite the forecast predicting a deterioration in the weather.
A First Dance to Lukas Graham - Love Someone and a father and daughter dance with Mark (a different one) to Michael Bolton to the appropriately titled Fathers and Daughters and ending the night with Journey Don't Stop Believing.
Kim looked stunning and Mark scrubbed up well too.
A fabulous night for a lovely couple.
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr & Mrs Ellison and all the very best for the future.

A great night where everybody got into the spirit of the wedding, anyone would think it was nearly Christmas.

I supported the couple with all of their music requirements throughout the day including the prelude, ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast.
#weddingDJ #weddingdisco #backworthhall #NorthEastDJ
After getting married in Las Vegas Chris and Laura decided to through a wedding party so their friends and family could celebrate their wedding on home soil.
They chose the fabulous Hedworth Hall to do it providing a fab backdrop to the celebration.
Music included more than your average lashings of Elvis and tracks from the Greatest Showman ... no coincidence their then.
All the very best to the new Mr & Mrs Batson
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.

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.

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.
Good to meet @JamieMacPhotography https://www.facebook.com/JamieMacPhotography/ doing an awesome job behind the camera to surpass my efforts shown here.
Many congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Crowe. xxx
