FAQ’s

Wedding Fireworks

How much do fireworks cost?

The cost of a professional firework display can vary enormously depending on the intensity, size and number of fireworks fired and the duration of the display.

A high quality wedding firework display would normally cost about £800 for 6-8 minutes duration and typically £100 for every extra minute after that.  Once the budget exceeds £1,500 then you could consider the option of having your display choreographed to music.

As a guide an organisation such as a Round Table or Parish Council typically spends between £3,000 to £6,000 for a 15 to 20 minute pyromusical.

Major Guy Fawkes displays as seen in many cities accross the UK over November would typically cost between £10,000 and £16,000 and often have audiences in excess of 20,000.

Larger displays seen in such places as Battersea Park, Edinburgh Castle and the London Eye can range from between £30,000 to £200,000.

The record for the most expensive firework display is held by Kuwait for the 50th anniversary of the ratification of Kuwait’s Constitution in November 2012.  The display cost a reported £10,000,000 !

The Guinness World Record for the largest firework display was achieved by The Church of Christ in Manilla in the Philippines at the countdown to the 2016 New Year Celebrations.  Although the cost of the display is unreported.

 

 

Can I add music to my display?

Reaction Fireworks have an enviable reputation for choreographing music to fireworks.

We believe the combination of music and fireworks adds so much more to a display and makes for a more spectacular occasion.

What music should I choose?

We can choreograph fireworks to any piece of music, but some styles of music work better than others.  We suggest you start with a theme or favourite song in mind.

We always approach the selection of music in partnership with our clients.  This helps to ensure that the creative process is collaborative and that the final selection is agreeable to all parties.

Will rain affect my firework display?

We work hard to ensure all of our fireworks are waterproofed and protected from the weather and we won’t cancel a firework display due to rain unless there is flooding or a risk to people.

We get wet not our fireworks!

Will wind affect my firework display?

Safety is our number one priority and unfortunately the wind is our number one enemy, however cancellation of a display is extremely rare.

In windy conditions we may choose with agreement with the event organiser to fire a test shell and follow the track of the fallout.

We will do whatever we can to ensure a safe and successful display and may work with the organiser to move the spectator area or firing site.

We may choose to exclude long burning effects from the display or cancel the display completely.

If we cancel a display we will always work with the display organiser to re-arrange the time or date if possible.

My wedding venue won’t allow fireworks?

If your venue has a restriction on the use of fireworks this is probably due to noise.  Reaction Fireworks can provide stunning, low noise displays and would be happy to speak to your venue on your behalf to see what we can do.

Can my firework display be themed?

Yes.  We can select different colours, effects and accompanying music to fit any theme.

Reaction Fireworks have an enviable reputation for choreographing music to fireworks and have a large inventory of colours and effects which means we can deliver the most creative themed firework displays imaginable.

Can you provide quiet fireworks?

Using specialist materials we can provide a reduced noise, high-impact display at venues where noise levels are a consideration. Choose from any one of our packages and we will replace the loud effects with visually stunning quieter ones.
