It was great to be invited to DJ and provide the Master of Ceremony Services for Kevin and Sarah's Wedding at the fabulous Ellingham Hall near Alnwick in Northumberland.
And what a day and night it turned out to be.
Kevin and Sarah carefully chose the music to complement their wedding perfectly although we did abandon the wedding breakfast playlist as it was clear that the guests were up for an early start to the party celebrations.
One of the real advantages of having a skilled DJ and Master of Ceremonies present at your wedding all day is that they can judge the mood and adjust things as necessary.
Sarah chose Rod Stewart's cover of the Van Morrison classic "Have I Told You Lately" and they happy couple came out to the ever popular American Authors "Best Day of My Life"
Some upbeat music followed during the drinks reception.
I announced Kevin and Sarah into the wedding breakfast in my own inimitable style with a musical backdrop and that went down a storm which got everybody in a good mood for the speeches.
Some emotional and funny speeches followed with Kevin and Sarah's son Noah stealing the show.
The wedding breakfast was a cracker with everyone in an upbeat party mood so the love songs were abandoned in favour of some singalong and upbeat classics which had people dancing and standing on their seats and waving their napkins in the air.
The evening party got off to a great start with Noel Gallaghers version of Wonderwall as the First Dance.
A great mix of tunes throughout the night with quite a few requests thrown in for good measure.
A sparkler parade outside and a fab fish and chip supper really hit the mark.
Ending the night on a couple of Oasis classics Live Forever followed by Don't Look Back in Anger which went down a storm.
Many congratulations to the brand new Mr and Mrs Hodgson and what a way to start married life together.
Great to work alongside fellow professionals Tom Richardson Photography.and the Balloon Fairy North East
