One of our firework displays captured by a Drone… Wonderful!!
We are lucky enough to have a Professional, fully licensed drone ‘pilot’ here on Samui that can capture your firework display from the unique perspective of an airborne drone!! Phil Bedford (Aerial Photography Asia) has done an amazing job in capturing one of our recent shoots for a V.I.P. client here on Koh Samui. He collects video from both the drone and a ground-based camera to create a wonderfully special memory of your magical evening. We here at ‘The Firework Shop’ are proud to be able to offer this amazing service as one of the memory-making options for our clients.
We hope you enjoy this video as much as we do! 🙂
5 minutes of Firework Heaven backed by Rock & Roll!
This video is of a shoot we did for Tina (Unique Wedding and Events) a while back. It was a super evening, and our firework display went down with the clients very well indeed, with lots of the obligitary ‘Ooohs’ and ‘Aaahs’ and ‘WOWs’! The clients (& Tina!) enjoyed it so much that Tina decided to feature it on her website (www.uniqueweddingandevents.com), after her husband (Riedar) had worked his magic by adding some ‘appropriate’ music! (The firework display itself was not edited in anyway, apart from the music being added). His choice was impeccable, and it almost seems that the display was shot deliberately for this Rock & Roll masterpiece!
A fantastic shoot (well done Nu and his team!), and the music just ‘Rocks it to the TOP!’
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do 🙂
A Super Birthday Shoot …
What a terrific night last night was! This shoot was for Misha’s birthday at a villa in Coconut Paradise in BangPo.. and it would be difficult to meet a nicer group of people! It was a dream shoot to do, as all they did was give us a budget to work to… no request for the display to last ‘x’ minutes… no special requests for colours or effects… they were happy simply leaving us to do what we do best, and trusted us to give them an exciting and dramatic firework display. The shoot was set-up on the beach, some 2 metres below the level of the garden where Misha and his friends were to stand. This natural safety barrier meant that Misha et al were able to stand a bit closer than we would normally allow spectators… so they could really enjoy their fireworks! 🙂
This was a short-notice booking which was only confirmed at 11:30 in the morning… so we had only 6 hours to plan and refine the shoot, and select the fireworks we wanted before we had to leave to actually set-up on the shoot site! Things got a bit hectic when we arrived on-site to find the water was literally lapping at the sea wall! We couldn’t do anything on the beach at all… so we started to prepare the mortars on the raised garden… getting the right sized mortars in a long queue, and organising the shells by putting them in the order that La-on had planned. We also attached the igniters to the trace wires, so that when we could get down on the beach, all we had to do was fit the jigsaw pieces together! It was great to watch the team at work getting everything ready… they worked so well together it gave me goosebumps, and made me very proud. When we finally got down onto the beach we had less than 2 hours to put everything together. The trenches were built… mortar tubes handed down from the garden in order and placed in the trenches… with each one then getting its right shell… followed up by La-on checking that the shells were sitting right and cutting the quick-fuse to the right length. Once all the mortars were set-up we all then worked from each end of the long line putting the igniters into the quick-fuse. The cakes were next… all 1.3g display cakes… 2x 138 shot (1.25 inch dia.)… 2x 100 shot display cakes (1.5 inch dia)… 1x 160 shot (2 inch dia). Once fused it was time to connect everything up to the remote systems. The opening barrage of 6 mortars were wired up to a 10 cue sequencer that would be shot by the birthday boy himself with a WiFi remote, with Nu and Baahn taking over the rest of the shoot. The remote systems we used were 2x 40 cue WiFi sequencers… 1x 24 cue WiFi sequencer… 2x 10 cue WiFi sequencers, and 2 units from a ‘step by step’ WiFi system. Every shell and cake performed perfectly with no failures, but I was particularly impressed with the 2 inch dia. cake (160 shot)… we will definitely be ordering more of them!! The timing of the display was perfect too… we had planned for 5 minutes… and it was bang on the button! Misha and his friends really enjoyed the show (as you can tell by the video), which makes everything worthwhile. The team were even complimented on their professionalism by one of Misha’s friends… it made them happy to hear that, and me very proud of them. BIG thanks to Nu, Baahn, P’Dtuan, the wonderful La-on, and the 2 ‘Go-Fers’ (Go for this… Go for that! lol) Dtong and Saa… WELL DONE team… well done indeed!
Romance is alive & well!

Examples of Lance-work

Click HERE to see a waterfall-effect and ‘double-interlocking hearts’ lance-work set-piece
Romantically-themed firework packages can come with options of different lance-work set-pieces (the ‘single heart’ for example, or the ‘double interlocking hearts with a Cupid’s arrow’ … two of our most popular choices), as well as the amazing waterfall effect set-piece (6 or 9 metre lengths available).
Lance-work set-pieces are a wonderful way to end any firework display, and provide the perfect ‘photo-opportunity’ too!
Apart from the more obvious heart shapes and letters, we can also create almost any basic shape to order… for instance we recently created 2 ‘Love Bears’ for a proposal evening (she said ‘Yes’!), and a ‘Tiggr’ (from Winnie the Pooh) for a Chinese couple (with a terrific sense of humour), who were both born in the ‘Year of the Tiger’!
We can provide any message in a basic upper case font, with ‘I LOVE YOU’ being one of the most popular choices … or – as another example – the couple’s names… or – for a proposal – ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME?’
With letters starting at only 750 baht each (a full 80cms tall!), your guests really can express their undying love for each other without ‘breaking the bank’!
We can – to order – create any message in any language, or even approximate a specific style of letter or font! (Prices start from 700 baht per letter for ‘custom-made’ fonts/styles… costs depending upon size and complexity).
Lance-work set-pieces can be ordered with or without fireworks – perfect for those that don’t like or want fireworks, or simply wish for a quiet, romantic dinner on the beach with an added ‘special ingredient’ – such as a waterfall or romantic message.
Please Note: Our lance-work is not the same as the lower quality ‘fire writing’ offered by other firework suppliers. Our lance-work is made-up from individually hand-cut letters/shapes and burning flares (lances), and, unlike the ‘fire writing’, our lance-work letters and shapes can be seen clearly from quite a distance.
Lance-work does not involve petrol or other flammable liquids, and is therefore much safer (and doesn’t leave a petrol smell hanging around!).
