My favourite movie of all time is My Best Friend’s Wedding, starring Julia Roberts. Who could resist dreaming if being that perky Cameron Diaz in the car surrounded by jaw-dropping fireworks as she left for her happily ever after.
No surprises, but in the late 90’s, when the movie was released, “pyrotechnics” was a very popular way to make a real impact moment at the wedding reception. Fast forward two decades, there has been a growing interest is the use of wedding pyrotechnics – something to light up the sky and put your stamp on your special day.
Whether you want to create a truly magical romantic outdoor display, or want to have vibrant red and hot pink hearts burst into life in a dazzling display, the variety of what is available is mind-blowing. Your names can light up the evening sky to put your own dazzling stamp on your wedding day.
For those on a more modest budget never fear, there is a suite of options bursting with colour and vibrancy. An indoor display may be the option which can include a multitude of coloured streamers, silver fountains bursting to life when the cake is cut, or cannons filled with slow falling hearts for the bridal dance.
Even the most popular option of low-lying fog is a pyrotechnic… some DJ’s include fog but you need to check that it is low-lying and that they are licensed – you don’t want the room evacuated by fire alarms or smoke!
Last week, we again saw one of the popular options for pyrotechnics at Bram Leigh. We have a magnificent drive way which sets the scene, and then we had cannons of silver fireworks fill the driveway, which took me back in time to the scene of My Best Friend’s Wedding.
What a site and what a way to end a perfect event.
