Sophie Barker, Initials Marketing
We have worked with Illuminarium over the last three years to delight festival crowds with pyrotechnics. From developing the initial idea to ongoing activation at multiple festivals, Ted has been an absolute pleasure to work with and always puts on an amazing pyrotechnic show. Highly recommended!
Robin Collings, Producer Manager
Illuminarium are an incredible team! Highly recommend them. Having worked with them for years on various large scale stage and set builds for Boomtown and Shangrila at Glastonbury, I always know that the team will deliver on point, on budget and on time!
Production Manager, S4C Television
This is one example of the many special effects provided by Illuminarium Limited for S4C Promotions Department. The meticulous preparation and pre shoot testing carried out for each project by Edward Chiswell Jones ensures that the Health and Safety of Cast and Crew is well planned. As with any Special Effects process, the unexpected should always be expected, but the on set briefing and co-ordination prior to each take was vital knowledge for everyone throughout the filming process.

"Thanks again to you and your team for such an excellent job! Everyone was really happy with the tests on the day and I’m sitting in the edit now and can tell you that it all looks brilliant! Hope to work with you again in the future."

I researched many companies, but was so pleased with the professional attitude of Edward Chiswell Jones and Lance Paxton during our initial visit for tests at their workshop and for the implementation of their Special Effects ‘On-Set’. Their technical knowledge and concern for Health and Safety was extremely valuable.
With a strap line of “Join the Red Wall” we required Special Effects of bursting balloons with red powder erupting from the balloons and totally engulfing the artists.

Sophie (working with Wilderness Festival)
"Illuminarium offered just what we were looking for, the flame torches were amazing and added that extra touch to the entrance to our 1920 swing club giving to make it look truly inviting. Brilliant and friendly people."
James, Reggae Roast
"Illuminarium did a great job. Very professional and the crowd loved the effects!"
"We would like to thank Illuminarium for creating our 2015 show feature. The flaming VW sign amazed our followers and has been a talking point in the VW community ever since. It was also very easy to assemble and use after a short but precise demonstration from Illuminarium. Thanks once again, and we will be back with another project soon!!"
Montgomery Parkinson Wedding
Emma and Alistair Montgomery Parkinson
"Thank you so much for the wonderful Flambeaux that you provided for our wedding. Many guests mentioned how stunning they looked, and they certainly added both drama and character to the decor of the courtyard, as well as creating a wonderfully visual sense of occasion to the entrance as our guests arrived. As for the flamethrower, it was amazing! It was both an entertaining and visually stunning way to mark the start of the evening's party as we lit the fire pits, and it was also great fun to use. Your professionalism and advice during the period leading up to the wedding was much appreciated, and your fuss-free and practical approach on the day was very welcome indeed. Thanks again, and good luck for the future of your business; we hope you are able to enhance other people's special day as much as you did ours".
Du Heaume Weinberg Wedding
Clare du Heaume Weinberg
" Illuminarium ensured the bonfire was set up to be lit quickly and safely and provided confetti effects for us as we arrived at the reception venue which set the celebratory tone of the whole evening. My husband Keith and I first met at the Burning Man festival in Nevada and the moment we realised we had something special was as we sat together holding hands and watching the temple burn, so we HAD to have a fire as part of our evening. This was made even more special as I lit it with a flame thrower, in my wedding dress, with our surprised guests cheering me on! The image of me lighting our wedding bonfire with the flamethrower was our favourite photo of the day."
Zion Community & Arts
"It is always a pleasure to work with Illuminarium, they are professional at every level and excel at producing the right display for the right occasion. It is alway exciting to see what they will do next."
Gladys the Green Goddess
Steve, Gladys The Green Goddess (Blackpool Illuminations Art Car Parade)
"During my work with Ted on the design and manufacture of two very sizeable propane jets that are mounted on the side of Gladys, the fire-breathing Green Goddess I found his work to be nothing short outstanding. From initial suitability studies through the actual build phase and H&S risk assessments after Ted was always on the ball. Then during the actual show at Blackpool Ted provided a stunning pyrotechnic show that acted as a wonderful visual backdrop for the propane effects from our vehicle. All in all, I would recommend Ted to anyone wishing to create that Wow factor in their audience."
