The 2013 Wedding Season is just beginning to gather pace. However, we would advise you not to put your wellies and woollies away just yet though as this could be the calm before the storm … again!!
Epic fireworks in Tankersley has more than 30 years experience in the fireworks industry, and we would really like to help anyone looking to have fireworks at their wedding get the best value and quality possible for half the price.
We stock a HUGE array of semi professional fireworks which will truly make your big day go with a bang. We can provide information to help you in choosing a bespoke pack with the right effects, colours and duration to fit in with your wedding theme or you could choose one of our specially selected display packs which come with a full set of safety instructions, safety portfires (for lighting your pyro) and a comprehensive guide on how to set up the fireworks to get the best for your money.
All you need to do is find someone who will do the setting up and firing for you and we can help them every step of the way on what to do if there is a change in the weather, how to lay them out and the timings of every piece so that you can have the seamless display your heart desires but at a fraction of the cost. We will not be supplying hundreds of small items but a particular selection of the best barrages in the UK (some of which are used by pro firers) to give you a display to remember.
A firework display at the end of your wedding would be the perfect end to the perfect day, so if you should find yourself needing some help, get in touch and we will certainly do our best, and as our prices are all half the RRP, they are great value for money.
A couple of weeks ago, I touched upon advertising in my piece about the old firework companies and their history. However, having been completely blown away by the recent ‘Coke Zero’ advertisement, I would like to know if there has ever been a TV advertisement for fireworks?
I am not referring to adverts which include fireworks as we have featured these on our firework blog a number of times, but an actual firework manufacturer/supplier who has made an advert in the UK?
In the new ‘Coke’ advert (coke has regularly featured fireworks in their advertising campaigns) the scene is a cinema theatre with rows of seats packed with people waiting for their film to start when up pops the man from the concessions stand, chatting about the new taste of ‘Coke Zero’ which they say is as tasty as regular coke and therefore cannot be distinguished because of its usual saccharine after taste. He gives them a bit more ‘schmooz’ and then tells the captive audience that they are all drinking the new tastier Coke Zero as he removes the double up cup to reveal this, the film cuts back to the audience who are revealing to their obvious astonishment that this is the case.
So I got thinking (I know, steady on) maybe the firework manufacturers should have a ‘fire-off’ to determine the best in each category but with a team of people who are simply lovers of fireworks and not connected with the industry or any particular brand or product. It’s the only way to get a genuinely un-biased view. What do you think ?
With 35 years in the business of fireworks and special effects, Mitcham based company “Le Maitre” (The Master) are reporting a profit increase of 30%, which in the recent economic climate has to be regarded as nothing short of spectacular.
With an impressive list of clients including HRH Queen Elizabeth II, Richard Branson and the BBC to name just a few the second biggest pyrotechnics company on the planet also has had it‘s work associated with many blockbuster films including “the hunger games” and “Les Miserables” premiers.
Anyone who has been to see Cirque du Soleil, The Killers, or even the UEFA League Championship Finals would have witnessed the work of le Maitre and possibly not realised.
With a research and development team of seven, designing some of the cutting edge of special effects in the world, it is something us Brits can be proud of.
I have been using one of their products for some time without realising its history, as one of the first company’s in the business they patented the “Pyroflash” stage effects system which has been used in numerous gigs over the years to great success. Probably one of my biggest was a corporate “James Bond” event for a major UK bank where I used their pyrotechnic system to blow up sections of a stage in a simulated film scene.
Things look good for the 75 employees of the West London Company who are now also based in the USA.
Take a look at some of their stunning displays and wonder at the ingenuity of us British.
As true world beaters in the industry their indoor shows have wowed the world, I challenge you take a look at these effects and not be impressed.
We here at Epic would like to wish Le Maitre every success in the future and hope your innovations continue to mesmerize and dazzle pyro fans across the world.
Anyone wanting to put on your own outdoor show on a smaller scale, please feel free to contact us, or view our fireworks in action at www.epicfireworks.com We have a wide variety of DIY display packs which will be brilliant for birthdays, anniversaries or any other celebrations and can be delivered to anywhere in the UK.
