Classical Music ideas for Wedding Firework Displays

A never ending love story - fireworks and classical music

As we have discussed elsewhere in this blog, the golden rule with wedding fireworks music is that you should choose pieces that you LOVE or is SPECIAL to you. For some people fireworks and classical music go hand in hand, and the end result can be timeless, stylish, rousing and very moving.

Getting married at a historic venue?

There's also something to be said for context. If you are getting married at a historic venue such as the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, Hampton Court Palace, or the Mansion House at Luton Hoo then a classical soundtrack to your wedding fireworks can really complement the splendour of the location and add to the sense of occasion.

Our top 5 pieces of classical music for wedding fireworks

Fireworks have regularly been accompanied by music for several hundred years, and so the first firework displays that were set to music were, of course, set to the music of the time. These musical accompaniments were often commissioned especially for the occasion, such as Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks in 1749. However, if you're not royalty or don't fancy commissioning your own wedding fireworks soundtrack composer, here are some classical suggestions from the staff and firing crew at Alchemy Wedding Fireworks to get you going.

  • Our Silver Package display now INCLUDES music! With the majority of wedding couples wanting their wedding fireworks display choreographed to music we decided to add it to the Silver Package rather than it being an 'add-on'. Music really does add the 'wow-factor' of any display and when it's music that you, the happy couple, have chosen it makes the display very personal. The price includes a dedicated, discreet PA system to playback the fireworks sountrack to your guests and the Silver Package now makes a Wedding display to music very affordable indeed.
