Check out 3 FIREWORKS Fireworks will literally wow the crowds at your wedding as your guests “ooh” and “ahh” at the display. Be sure to leave it to the professionals and you won’t be disappointed. Different packages are usually available to fit around your budget. Just be sure to check with your venue first, in case they don’t permit fireworks. TOP TIP “You may be tempted to save money by having the venue play the ceremony music over their sound system, but don’t! As great as venues are there’s more to a quality moment than hitting stop and start on a Spotify track – I’ve never seen it go well.What could be more special than walking down the aisle to an arrangement of your favourite song done just for you?” – Lee Gordon © Digital Film Makers, Stockport Scan to view video © Digital Film Makers, Stockport to boogie ENTERTAINMENT 61
