Wedding Fireworks to Music, near Yeovil, Somerset
For Karl and Jo’s Wedding Fireworks in Somerset, the music featured an eclectic mix of artists including Pavarotti, Evanescence, Bryan Adams and Take That – all chosen by the bride and groom and mixed in-house at the Alchemy Lab. Karl is a fireworks fan and interested in the show design side of things, so we programmed a digital preview of the display to help him visualise the firework display that we were planning to produce for his wedding. This process really helps cut through the jargon and allows us to present the proposed show in terms that everyone can understand – which is perfect if you don’t know your artillery cannonade from your midnight snow, but you want to know what your wedding firework display will look like. The preview also helped Karl understand the level of noise restrictions at the venue, and see exactly what was possible within the parameters of a quiet wedding firework display, and see just how high impact they could be (without cracking windows or bursting eardrums).
That said, the ability to see a show several times beforehand does take away some of the element of the surprise (!) and magic of a fireworks display, so a visual preview isn’t something that everyone likes idea of.
