How to take a great photograph of a fireworks display
Achieving good photographs of firework displays isn’t just a matter of taking snapshots with a smartphone, but with a little […]
A firework display is becoming a popular option to help celebrate a wedding; it can help to create the perfect end to the perfect day. However, there are some considerations that you need to take into account first.
Check with the venue – first of all, you need to speak to the venue to check that fireworks are allowed as you do not want to set your heart on a firework display if it will not be allowed.
If it is permitted, then there might be some restrictions on noise limits or and timing. If this is the case it will be necessary to request that the company in charge of the display use low noise fireworks and ensure that they fire within the prescribed time. In any case, it is illegal to set off fireworks in the UK after 11pm (with the exception of NYE, Diwali, Chinese New Year and November 5th).
The next thing you’ll want to think about is whether or not there is enough space at the venue to safely fire the wedding fireworks. Before making any concrete plans, you should consult with a firework company to give you an informed opinion on what is possible.
Once you have made the decision to go ahead with the display, you then need to consider your budget and how much you are willing to spend on it. Many companies offer special packages for wedding displays for the lower end, whereas larger displays will require a more bespoke service.
When you have decided on a budget, it will then be time to talk to an organiser about what you want on your special day. The fireworks company should be able to help you to plan different colour schemes and will also be able to customise your display so that it will coordinate with your wedding theme.
Another aspect to consider would be the music. You’ll no doubt have a favourite song or songs that you’ll want to feature as part of the display, and you will need to speak to the organiser to ensure that your chosen music is suitable. If not, the display designer will be able to offer you viable alternatives.
Get professional advice
And finally, although it can be tempting to try and organise the display yourself, in order to get the best results, and to ensure the safety of all of your guests, it is best to get a professional company to arrange the display.
