Alexis and Jamie's Pyromusical
We would like to express our gratitude to you, Glen and the team at Shockwave for producing such a spectacular show at our daughter’s wedding last week. We have been inundated with letters, e-mails and text messages from guests, describing it as the best fireworks display they have ever seen. The whole day was a wonderful occasion and your contribution was ‘the icing on the wedding cake’, if you will forgive my pun. Awesome, amazing, spectacular, breath-taking are just a few of the adjectives being used to describe your work.
When we decided to include a fireworks display in the celebration of Alexis’ and Jamie’s wedding we naturally spoke to numerous pyrotechnic companies, but we knew from the moment we spoke to you that Shockwave was the ‘one for the job’. Your friendly and accommodating approach, Glen’s technical expertise and advice. From start to finish the whole package was thoroughly professional. The reaction of family and friends has been so emphatic that we felt we had to attach just a few of their genuine messages.
“The fireworks were awesome. Better by far than Alton Towers”.
(Andy Butters – Butters Marquees)
“I have been to many firework displays in my life, but this was
without doubt the best”.
(John Taylor – Brother)
“The firework display was worthy of a place on the River Thames on
New Year’s Eve”.
(John Dale – Friend)
“It was like Disneyland with emotion. It just blew me away”.
(Ian Swift – Friend)
We asked you to give us something special, Debs, and you surpassed it. The choreography was brilliant. It was moving, intense and very memorable.

We really can't thank you enough for your sponsorship, support and flexibility. Absolutely spectacular.

Well … that was a blast! From the first chords struck by local band Huckleberry Finns to the firework finale on Sunday night. The event finished with an enticing performance from the Darkness followed by a brilliant firework show which lit the sky up over the beach where the main stage is located.
The highlight of the weekend? It’s a very close call between the firework explosion on the last chord of The Darkness’ electrifying set at the beach … and the sensational collaboration between Oompah Brass and Chase & Dave.
How do you top that? Guess we’ll find out next year, same time, same place…
see you on the beach!

Emma and Steve's Low Noise Pyromusical
Thank you so much. We really did have THE BEST day. We couldn't have hoped for anymore. I am just sad its all over already! The fireworks were a total hit - it was a complete surprise to most people and the music from the headphones was just perfect. We were over the moon with it so thank you for all of your hard work pulling it together at fairly short notice!

Matthew and Donna at Gorcott Hall
We would like to thank you for what turned out to be an awesome firework display for our wedding reception at Gorcott Hall on Saturday. Our wedding guests were completely blown away by the superb display that you provided (And keeping it a surprise from them too!). You took on board our requests with respect to our colour scheme and the type of intensity and duration of display that we required and delivered what turned out to be a display of intensity, colour and most of all a stunning lasting memory. We will recommend your services whenever we can....Thank you!
Lucy and Toms Display at Chillington Hall
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team for all of the hard work that went into the display last night. I can't begin to describe how far it exceeded our already high expectations. The immense scale of the display was incredible and the finale simply took our breath away.
All of our guests, without exception, have commented on how amazing the display was - with many guests pointing out that it beat large scale organised event firework displays by miles!!!
Thank you so much for adding so many great memories to our day, that we will never forget!
Suzanne and Alans Wedding Display
If we could sum up our experience of Shockwave in one word, it would be 'fantastic.' The whole service we received (from the very first e-mail from Debs answering our initial enquiry right through to the amazing fireworks display at our wedding) was superb. It was an absolute pleasure work with Shockwave. The whole team made everything so easy for us in the months leading up to the wedding - they were prompt, informative, answered all of our questions and generally made us feel that we were in safe hands. I simply cannot fault anything. And as for the fireworks display, wow! Quite simply one of the best displays I have ever seen. It was magical. Our guests loved it just as much as we did. I remember walking back up the steps to everyone saying the same thing to me - 'absolutely brilliant', 'best ever', 'amazing', 'fantastic' - it goes on! I would not hesitate in recommending Shockwave to anyone. Book them!
Helen and Michaels Ullswater Spectacular
What can we say? but thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The display you created for us was beyond our wildest dreams and so much more than we expected. We were both so overwhelmed by it all and so were our guests.
All of our guests and even the the staff at Leeming House have said it was amazing. The venue were so impressed and of course everyone wanted to know who you were. Debs, you have been an absolute pleasure to do business with. I always knew where I stood with you and your team.
We will treasure those memories always, so thank you for giving those memories to us.
We will be recommending you to everyone we know. It has been a dream come true for Michael and I one which we will never forget. As most of our guests said a perfect ending to a fantastic weekend.
Love & hugs to you all
Amy and Marcs Pyromusical
Shockwave Pyrotechnics provided a fantastic and friendly customer service teamed with an outstanding firework display.
Our guests were amazed and my husband was thrilled with his surprise. The display was perfectly synchronised to 2 of our favourite songs, it was so romantic! Everyone was very impressed, comparing the fireworks to those at Disneyland and Alton towers!! People thought I'd paid double the price that I actually had.
Great value for money!! And the shockwave team even had time to greet and congratulate us afterwards. Wish we could do it all over again!!
Becky & Stus Pyromusical
When my partner and I discussed entertainment for our wedding we both decided Fireworks would be a perfect addition to the day. Although our budget seemed reasonable to us I was surprised to find that we were priced out of many packages. By the time I came across ShockWave Pyrotechnics we had almost given up on the idea. But as soon as I spoke to Debs and the team I knew in my heart they were the right company for us. Not only did Debs assure me that they could do something spectacular with our budget, she also seemed as excited about the display as I was!!! I felt 100% confident with them from the start, we were so excited.
So when our venue told us they would not allow fireworks we were absolutely devastated. I spoke to Debs, and ShockWave Pyrotechnics took it all in their stride. They took control, contacted the venue and managed to get them to agree to the display!
Our day was perfect and as the time for the display came around everyone was very excited. And it did not disappoint!! The show was more dramatic and spectacular than we could ever have wished for and the fact that it was set to one of our favourite songs made it so special. It was a moment we will never forget and our guests were blown away!! It truly was the perfect start to married life, those memories will stay with us for ever and I cannot thank Debs and the team enough!!!!! I can't wait for our next big event so we have an excuse to book them again.

Dear Glen & Debbie,
Firstly I cannot think of any way to improve your service; I wish other agencies I dealt with were as professional as you. In essence you did exactly what you said you would but also added another dimension which is that of improvisation. By that you were flexible and considerate to the moment and your timing was superb. Those present were extremely impressed and moved by the event and the fireworks display completely reinforced the moment and was just superb – “it’s not what you do, it’s the way that you do it!” That is most definitely what gets results.
We will use you again without reservation.
Best Regards and thanks again

Just a quick email to say thank you so much to you, Glen and rest of the gang.
Your firework display was the best we've seen and it blew everyone away. You completely made our wedding and helped us make some incredible memories which we will never forget! My grandma was in floods of tears after setting off the fireworks and it really was the best part of our wedding.
Thank you all so so much.

Speaking on behalf of the Cricket and Football members can I just say a massive thank you to you and your crew for what was a spectacular firework display, we were all very impressed with your professionalism, organisation and attention to detail. Surveying and cleaning up the area after was also a massive help for us. As a group we have no issue what so ever in booking you for Saturday November 4th 2017 and as it is our 20th anniversary we will be looking to add a few extra touches to the event.
Once again a massive thank you from all at Old Hill Cricket Club and Old Hill FC for what proved to be our most successful event we have done in its history
Just to say that you put on a fantastic display on the 5th. The whole night was a great success, we had record attendance, record sales and record profits for the village hall.
I would like to book again for next year on the 4th.
