Light up the sky

Light up the sky

Q. My fiancé proposed on bonfire night so we really want a fireworks display for our wedding but we're not sure how to go about it to ensure maximum wow factor.

A. Vanessa White says: Vanessa says: Fireworks are a way of making your day stand out and the best way to achieve this is to use professionals. Look for experts that specialise in design artistry using the latest ranges of pastel shades and unusual colours, complemented by new effects like swirling flowers alongside old favourites to delight your guests. Choreography is key, filling the sky with patterns and layers, like a colourful rainbow arch or a loud whistle and crackle to make everyone jump. You can even take it to the next level and personalise your display with your initials lit up in a display.

First and foremost, check that your chosen venue allows fireworks. Some will only permit low-noise displays, which can be just as stunning. The cost doesn't have to be scary either. An evening display needs last no longer than five minutes to give you a spectacular finale. Shows can be designed to suit you and your budget and it doesn't have to be complicated to arrange. After getting in touch, setting a budget and sharing your ideas, we do the rest, from site visits, risk assessment, liaising with the venue, design firing and clearing up afterwards.

Ideally book a year in advance, especially if you're getting married in the peak summer season in order to allow time to visit the site, discuss your design ideas and how best to bring them to life. That said, we've turned around a display in a matter of weeks for a last-minute request.
