I've never seen Blyth Comrades Club looking so good.
A tremendous effort from the event dressers to transform an ordinary social club concert room into a fairytale wedding venue.
The wedding disco dressed in white to match the venue dressing and sparkling dance floor, uplit podiums in matching colours providing the platform for my moving heads which provided a tremendous sweeping effect across the whole room bouncing of the ceiling and walls.
Love Letters, an Illuminated Heart, a Photo Booth, Sparkling White Dancefloor, a magician to entertain the guests and a photographer to capture every moment.
First dance Nathan Sykes -Over and Over Again and the cake cutting song Luther Vandross and his version of Always and Forever.
Text the DJ proving to be very popular with a mix of requests coming in including:
Night got off to a bit of a slow start with the first dance not taking place till 9.30pm and the music being kept low until then so that the guests could hear the magician's patter to help him work his table magic.
The night picked up after speeches with the evening coming to a close at 11.45pm and finishing on a high.
A great night at a super venue just 5 minutes out of Morpeth Centre to celebrate Chloe's 18th Birthday Party.
Guests invited to come along in beach attire for a beach party theme although this wasn't reflected in the music selections for the night.
An interesting and eclectic choice of music and certainly not what I was expecting with the party host who had a liking for "forgotten classics and rock songs that everyone knows the words too."

Jay and Marie's party was held at the Spartan's Hotel in Blyth.
A large function room with the disco and dancefloor set back from the main room.
Speaking to Jay and Marie about the music for the night they had a preference for the current charts, some bouncy dance later on and a few party classics. specific requests from the happy couple included Clarity, Seek Bromance, 500 Miles, Firework and Footloose.
There was a good crowd and a nice buzz early in the night with a fair bit of chair dancing and dancefloor activity before the buffet suggesting that its was going to be a great night.
It certainly didn't disappoint, It was an absolutely brilliant night with a packed dancefloor for most of the night with lots of requests including Milk, 80's, Eric Prydz, Elysium, Took a Pill etc
Got some great feedback from the host "quality music and night" and from one of his mates "great set"

What a fantastic night for a super couple and I love it when a plan comes together.
We had an earlier planning meeting to discuss John and Kathryn's requirements. I had already provided them with two CD's containing edited versions of the music to be used for their ceremony.
I was booked from 6pm and in order to keep any disruption to the guests and celebration to a minimum I decided to set up earlier that day.
As everything was set I was happy to provide John and Kathryn with the use of my radio mics for their speeches and playout system for background music via my ipad. I even provided an instructional video so that the music could be set to play and adjusted to the right volume when they arrived.
During the evening the plan and timings of the cake cutting, first dance and surprise father daughter dance were adjusted to take account of changing circumstances, taking time to ensure that the Bride and Groom were happy with everything.
Guests were provided with "Text the DJ" slips which worked a treat and saved the guests from clambering onto the stage.
A comedy moment came from the Photobooth whose touch sensitive screen was being set off by the booming bass from my subs, obligingly I turned the bass down a little and the photobooth owner did running beer mat repair to reduce the "rattle".
A good mix of music was provided with some of the younger guests getting their own way with some of the music played earlier in the evening. We had the party hits, music from the charts, EDM, Dance Classics, Rock, Alternative and a special UB40 request "I can't help falling in Love" with the accompaniment of a relative who I'd let MC over a couple of the dance tracks much to the amusement of the guests.
A great night all round and great feedback from one happy Bride.
Amazing DJ would recommend to anyone! Ian is fantastic and went out of his way to help us with other aspects of our wedding too! Thank you! X - Kathryn Tweddle
