Taplow House Hotel is an amazing place for a wedding, and Pippa & Anthony were very lucky indeed. It had been very very foggy for the 24 hours in the run up to the display but it started lifting about an hour before we were due to fire. There was still some mist in the air but I think that […]

Iscoyd Park in the heart of Shropshire is the ideal place for wedding fireworks, and we were lucky enough to join Phillippa & Adam this November 5th to put on their wedding firework display.

Now I love a massive professional firework display as much as the next man, but there is still something very special about getting friends and family together on a cold night in November and standing about while Dad fiddles in the selection box for the next impressive item.


So that is what we do, every year all our neighbours come out […]
