TRADITIONAL WEDDING FIREWORKS, WOLDINGHAM, SURREY
When groom-to-be Rob Shrimplin called Alchemy Fireworks, he was clear from the start that he wanted as few people as possible to know about what he was planning for his firework-loving bride. We love surprises too – and a firework display is surely one of the most spectacular surprises that anyone can organize for somebody they love – so we were to happy help and keep our side of the deal.
We visited the venue for the wedding reception in Woldingham, Kent, and worked with them to choose a suitable firing location where we could set up the fireworks discreetly, but where the display would still have maximum impact for the Bride and the wedding guests.
By the time the big day came it was still only the Groom, the Best Man and the Bride’s Mother who were in on the secret, and even when the guests were called outside on false pretenses, the Bride still had no idea that a spectacular wedding firework display was about to take place.
Rob Farrow says “When the Best Man told us that everyone was outside we launched the first hit, and the gasps and cheers were amazing – it sounded like there were 1,000 people watching rather than 100.” Even working with a comparatively small budget, the display exceeded all expectations “The fact that that the firework display was a surprise helped” says Rob “but our decision to locate the display on the top level of the gardens – higher than the terrace where the guests were watching from – made the display seem even bigger than it actually was: a monumental wedding firework display in fact.”
