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.
Well what can I say .... a flipping mint night for Paul and Anna at the fabulous Whitworth Hall Hotel complete with a deer park and lake quite stunning.
Processional Song - Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles
Signing the Register - Fleetwood Mac - Songbird and Bright Eyes - First Day of My Life
Recessional Song - Pharrell Williams - Happy (Edited)
A first dance to a classic from Eric Clapton Wonderful Tonight and it certainly was. A mix of music including some song memories from Anna's hen night, RnB and some dance classics from the 90's with a spattering of requests and party tunes.
Bouquet Toss - the ever popular Single Ladies - Beyonce
Absolute belter all round.. Finishing the night on Gerry and the Pacemakers - You'll Never Walk Alone
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr & Mrs Bainbridge who celebrated in style with family and friends.

The bad weather didn't dampen the spirits at Peter and Layla's Wedding with a very different and unique venue.
A surprise processional song was chosen and it certainly was unique ... the theme from Jurassic Park.
A special moving ceremony with contributions from friends and family.
Music throughout the day and a ceilidh thrown into the mix for a wedding with Peter and Layla's stamp all over it.
A Ceilidh Band helped put the couples personality and unique take on their wedding celebration.
The nightmare load in made a whole lot easier with each guest taking a bit of my kit to the trailer as they left.
Fab night for a super couple.
Layla had this to say "Really really great DJ!! Can't recommend Ian enough. I emailed a load of DJs for our wedding and Ian was the only one I was impressed with. He was thorough and he really cared about making the day ours. He gave us help and advice, and although our venue was a little tricky for him to access it didn't stop him! I've had a lot of great comments from our guests about the DJ and the music, so I really can't recommend Ian enough :)"
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.
