One of the most frequently asked questions when couples are enquiring about wedding firework displays is “What can we expect to see in our show?”. Of course, it’s easy for us to respond with a long winded explanation of firework terms and pyrotechnic talk as we have worked in the industry for many years. However for an excited future bride and groom planning their pre nuptials it’s very often the first (and hopefully the last time) they will ever have to arrange and book professional firework displays.
Planning your big day takes a lot of organisation and expense, so it’s only natural you will want to know what you are getting for your money. In this article we will be explaining your wedding firework displays content and the beautiful effects you can expect to be witnessing in front of your very own eyes.
Our high quality stocks are sourced and carefully chosen from around the world to ensure customers get to view the very finest pyrotechnics. Category 4 material is featured in all shows and is for professional use only – the general public are only allowed to purchase products up to Category 3, so consequently you will get to enjoy fireworks often admired at larger public events.
Once a display package and wedding venue has been booked, our team of experts can then start to work on designing your wedding firework displays sequences. The many types of fireworks incorporated include – mines, roman candles, fountains, multi shot barrages (cakes), mortar shells and on occasions fire writing set pieces.
Roman candles are traditionally positioned to create a fanned or cross over visual, contain large colour stars which fire at regular intervals and are usually designed in pairs, threes or fives. Larger candles can contain bombettes – smaller shells rather than stars. Mines – a one shot lower level effect, fired from a mortar tube ejects a column of stars into the sky and also contain small shells, serpents and small reports which feature regularly in our wedding firework displays and are very effective in pyro musicals for perfect timing of cues choreographed to musical scores.
Fountains also known as gerbs produce a beautiful jet of sparks with a duration of between fifteen to sixty seconds. Colours range from Gold, through to a moderately bright yellow to a dazzling white and are often chosen in displays to compliment a glowing red heart and initials set piece, highlight a favorite colour or promote the happy couples wedding theme.
