The perfect end to a perfect day

Fireworks are a perfect way to bring your wedding celebrations to a close, but make sure you entrust this special moment to a professional to guarantee plenty of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahas’.

There are so many magical moments that occur throughout a wedding day. The instant the bride appears at the top of the aisle. The ‘I dos’ and the ‘You may now kiss the bride’. The cutting of the cake, the speeches, the first dance.

But as your big day draws to a close, it’s important to think about how you can end on a high note, sending your guests home with a bang rather than the celebrations simply fizzling out. And on a clear night, there’s no better way to do that than with a breath-taking display of fireworks.

You could set off a few bonfire night favourites yourself, but with everything else you have to organise, leaving it to the professionals is a far better idea. Not to mention safer! And if you choose the right company, you’ll be able to specify the kind of display you’re after, including length, colours, firework types and more.

Jonathan Mellen has been working in the pyrotechnics industry from a young age and set up Pendragon Fireworks in the late 90s. He’s created displays for organisations ranging from Tŷ Hafan to the BBC, and has won awards including first place at the British Firework Championships and second place at British Firework Champion of Champions Competition.

Jonathan and his team of trained professionals will not only create an awe-inspiring display for your wedding, they’ll also set everything up and clear it away afterwards. They can even add extra touches to complete the magical atmosphere, from fake snow on the ground at Christmas time to an avenue of silver fountains for you and your new spouse to walk through. Or why not have your initials and a romantic heart or celebratory champagne bottle set ablaze static with fireworks?

Perhaps most importantly, Pendragon will keep you and your guests safe. It’s the only company in Wales with a membership of the British Pyrotechnists Association and each venue is subject to a risk assessment before the event. The team will keep a close eye on health and safety throughout the display, leaving you to sit back and enjoy it without any worries.

“Fantastic, a great wedding rounded off with a great night, perfect setting. I knew it was going to be good but it was even better than I expected. Thank you all at Pendragon Fireworks.”
