To Lands’ End & Back

By |Halo FX|

Kirsty and her family, from Cornwall, chose The Black Eyed Peas ‘Tonight’s Gonna be a Good Night’ and Katie Perry’s ‘Fireworks’ to scatter her Mum’s ashes.  Scattering ashes throughout a firework’s display for many families is the perfect way to celebrate someone’s life. It’s not for everyone of course, and there are many different ways [...]

Happy Valentine’s

We were able to combine work and relaxing last night at the Draycote Hotel’s Valentines night dinner. Lovely to actually sit and be part of the magic rather than just pressing buttons.  Ben had rigged the table centres and fired them from across the table from me, whilst I sipped a glass of fizz – [...]

Wedding Fayre Season

By |Halo FX|

Remember, remember the 5th of November

So another season has come and gone safely, albeit with some challenging weather conditions. Our displays in Oxfordshire and Warwickshire were affected by strong winds.  But luckily they were in the right direction (not toward the crowds!) and in Warwickshire the wind died down very dramatically for the duration of the shows. The Rugby Fireworks [...]

Saying Goodbye

By |Halo FX|

Over the last couple of months we have had the privilege of scattering ashes of loved ones for two different families.   It is always an honour to be asked to help provide a moment to celebrate someone’s life and to scatter their ashes through the fireworks. Of all the displays we do these are the [...]
