Kal & Sarah

"outstanding job"

Traditional Wedding Fireworks, Kilworth House, Leicestershire

Many work-related conversations this year have, somewhat inevitably, tended to lapse into talk of the recession. On occasion it develops into a “conversation within a conversation”, something like “someone told me that such-and-such are busier than ever, but that’s just rubbish. It’s bleak out there and you’ve got to fight for every bit of business…” Well, leaving the he-said-she-said stuff to one side, the firework industry is always ultra-competitive but we’re also conscious that wedding fireworks displays are very much a product in the Marmite mould… Maximum excitement! Total waste of money! Suffice to say, you can’t convince somebody to have a wedding firework display if they don’t want one, and by the same token you can’t talk a real fireworks fan out of having a display at their wedding, recession or no recession: they either love it, or hate it. (And according to my anecdotal, unscientific research which of those groups you belong to is much more likely to be determined by a good/bad childhood experience of fireworks than any other factor, like gender.)

At this point can I introduce Kal. Our champion. Kal would According to Kal, his wedding firework display was non-negotiable. A cast-iron, inked-in, must-have part of the entertainment for his and Sarah’s wedding at Kilworth House. It doesn’t take much of a brain, (thankfully, for me) to realise that we like people like Kal. The brief for Kal and Sarah’s wedding fireworks display was simple: produce a spectacular show! Music? No. Preferred colours or effects? No. Personal likes and dislikes? Big is good. Noisy is good. (For those of you who may be thinking that Kal and I communicated like some sort of basic Neanderthals with grunts and single syllable words, I’d just like to point out that I have taken some degree of creative license with that summary of our conversation…)

The fireworks lover and the fireworks hater will never see things from the other’s point of view, and the best we can hope to do is amaze the enthusiasts, impress some floating voters to join our ranks, and move a few naysayers to reconsider. We knew Kal and Sarah would love their wedding fireworks display (which they both started with a simultaneous button push) but here’s what they had to say about it anyway.

“That was an outstanding job! From the time you took to come and survey the setting, to arranging for access with the farmer, and sorting a starter button so Sarah and I could get the show on the road. The display was truly amazing, with a great balance of effects and colours; the finale was really memorable and will remain etched on our memories forever! Thanks again!”

  • 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.
  • We've been working hard behind the scenes to update video content and we're pleased to say that all the packages now have updates and recent video examples. By clicking the video links you can now watch video examples of each package before you choose which one is right for you.

  • With Valentines Day less than a month away we're sure that many of you remember your proposals. Last year we helped Elliot propose to his fiancee with a surprise piece of glittering lancework asking 'MARRY ME?' surrounded by beatiful gold glittering fountains. When she said 'YES!' the sky erupted with shimmering starbursts and colourful tails. If you'd like help popping the question get in touch with us on 08000 66 58 37 and let's see what we can do. Anyone using us for a proposal who then books a wedding fireworks display gets a discount!
