The brief: Alchemy Fireworks was asked to produce a spectacular wedding firework display for Simon and Emma’s wedding reception.
The location: The event was held at a private residence near Thirsk, in Yorkshire.
The display: The groom gave us an open brief to produce a display a varied aerial firework display for his wedding. He is a big firework fan and a fully trained professional pyrotechnician, but understandably he didn’t want the hassle of actually working to set up his wedding fireworks display, so he asked us to do it for him. (We suspect that he knew something we didn’t because despite it being a mid-summer display the weather was decidedly wet and wild – similar to November the 5th but not what you’d hope for in June.) We spent a good few hours discussing the content of the display, and making show design suggestions before we agreed on a final show design that incorporated all his favourite effects.
