Weird and Wonderful Wedding World
15th April 2013
Illuminarium showcased four of our beautiful gas powered flambeaux torches, on the terrace area of @Bristol for the duration of an alternative wedding fair, Weird and Wonderful Wedding World. Real flame illumination creates a magical atmosphere that electric light just cannot emulate. The flambeaux can be placed outdoors as markers for entrances or pathways, creating a warm welcome for your guests. Ted Chiswell Jones has been working with fire and pyrotechnics for the past 14 years during which time it became apparent that many venues had problems with fireworks due to the noise and mess.
Many couples still want to be able to use fire as a celebratory element on their wedding day. The use of gas flames is a cleaner and quieter alternative to fireworks and has a multitude of interesting applications. I received a request to customise a green goddess fire engine with impressive 4m flame throwers, which my wife Kathryn and I used as our wedding car!
In 2010, Ted set up Illuminarium Ltd which has £5m public liability insurance cover to showcase our work and enable us to provide fire effects to venues that normally don’t allow fireworks or fire. In that time Ted has collaborated with other artists and created many unique, spectacular fire sculptures and performances for weddings and events around the country.
Illuminarium has provided confetti effects, pyrotechnics, fire poi performances, and created an unorthodox way for the bride and groom to ignite ceremonial bonfires and burn barrels with the ‘Illuminator’.
We have ‘off the shelf’ effects to hire from as little as a few hundred pounds, which includes insurance and operator or we can create your own completely bespoke effect.
We build unique sculptures, can light your names in fire or build fire pits and burn barrels to commemorate your special day.
