Celebrating in style with Alchemy Wedding Fireworks

We were delighted to be back at the iconic and stunning location of Leeds Castle to fire a beautifully choreographed wedding fireworks display. We created the perfect mix of music for Sofia and Thomas based on their suggestions and using the wireless capabilities of our state-of-the-art firing system FireOne and our own PA system we fired a magical display for the happy couple.

Happy Anniversary Leeds Castle classical concert!

The Leeds Castle classical concert is a mainstay in the Alchemy Fireworks summer calendar. It’s an absolute joy to be a part of such a prestigious event at such a wonderful venue and for this year, the concerts’ ruby anniversary, their was a very special atmosphere and the grounds were packed with concert goers and their picnics! Fireworks to the 1812 and Pomp & Circumstance lit up the skies above the Castle to huge cheers from the audience and as the final bars of God Save the Queen rang out, we brought the concert to a jaw-dropping climax with a huge volley of fireworks including a 12″ shell underneath which we fired the number ’40’ in fireworks. The precision and technology of the hardware and the fireworks themselves means that with the correct placement on the ground and the correct timings down to the millisecond, we can create letters and numbers in the sky from the ground up. Pretty incredible stuff! Tickets for next year’s concert on Saturtday 13th July are on sale already but don’t hang around because they WILL sell out! You can buy yours here!

Wedding vows and wedding WOWS!

Last weekend we were delighted to be back at Leeds Castle to fire a wedding display for a lovely couple – Laura & George. The day was just perfect and the happy couple made the most of the beautiful grounds and facilities with the wedding in the Castle itself, a drinks reception in the Maidens Tower, back to the Castle for the Wedding Breakfast and then joined in the evening by more guests for a party in the Fairfax Hall. Leeds Castle itself is the most stunning wedding venue and is absolutely perfect for fireworks displays. If you’re thinking of getting married and are looking for a suitable venue that allows fireworks take a look at the Leeds Castle website. The display that Laura & George had chosen was designed to an eclectic mix of their favourite music which was great fun to choreograph to. Our dedicated wedding fireworks website has packages available to suit all budgets and requirements. Laura & George’s display fell between a Platinum & Diamond package but they kept the duration down for maximum impact. Here’s what Laura & George had to say;

Concert at the Castle

Saturday saw Alchemy Fireworks produce 3 magnificent displays to 3 separate pieces of music at the Leeds Castle Classical Concert. This iconic event was held in the most spectacular location and natural amphitheater in front of the beautiful Leeds Castle. The concert not only featured so many popular classics, that audiences have come to associate with the event, but the audience also enjoyed the addition of some of John Williams’ most iconic film themes.

We also had a new host, Aled Jones MBE, who presented this magnificent and memorable concert, the highlight of the Kent event calendar.

The concert celebrated its 38th year with a wonderful programme of music and entertainment from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by John Rigby. Also performing were, The Definitive Rat Pack; the world’s finest interpreters of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.  Soloists Frances McCafferty and Anthony Flaum and the P&O Ferries Choir also be returned to the stage.  This fantastic night of patriotic flag-waving finished with a spectacular firework finale by Alchemy Fireworks. Firing to live music has its challenges – nothing can be pre-programmed because an orchestra can play the pieces at slightly different speeds to recorded versions. So it’s a case of knowing the music, and the performance of the fireworks, off by heart. Needless to say, we bought a little Alchemy magic to the event and the fireworks were met with rapturous applause and cheers!
