How Long Does The Wedding Fireworks Show Last?
We can design and fire the show in a number of ways to suit your budget. If you want the full load fired in a few minutes, we can do that. If you want the show paced to last longer with various bursts of extra colour and excitement during the show, leading to the grand finale, we can design the show to do just this. Most wedding fireworks shows last from 5 – 8 minutes but, the final decision is up to you. It’s not the length of the fireworks display that matters, it’s the number of fireworks used in the show.
What Time Does The Show Begin?
There is a legal restriction that stipulates no noise after 11 pm, with the exception of New Year’s Eve. If your wedding venue is a hotel or close to residential housing, we recommend an earlier start, if possible, to respect residents.
Do All Venues Allow Fireworks?
We design wedding fireworks displays nationwide. Most venues will allow professional, fully insured fireworks shows but please check with your venue before booking. Sometimes it is not possible to have fireworks at your wedding due to the close proximity of housing, too many trees at the venue or maybe there is just might not enough space for a fireworks display. We have fired shows at the most prestigious venues including Ashford Castle, Adare Manor, Castle Leslie, Slane Castle and many many more. In fact, Rocket Pyrotechnics reputation is such that we are the only pyrotechnics company allowed to produce fireworks displays at a number of venues.
Are You Insured For Wedding Fireworks Displays?
Yes, Rocket Pyrotechnics is fully insured with public liability insurance cover of €10,000,000
How Much Notice Do I Need to Give?
In Ireland, every fireworks display needs an appropriate licence. As a result, we would require a minimum of 4 weeks’ notice to apply for the licence from the Department of Justice. If possible, try to allow 6 weeks.
The Final Price
Once we have concluded our site visit (if we have not already fired at your location) and examined every detail, we design the show based on our discussions with you. There are no hidden extras so you know exactly the cost, well in advance of your wedding day.
