I can’t express praise enough for Fireworks New Zealand! At every Classic Fighters air show they come up with spectacular ideas to wow the crowd. Last year they choreographed the Friday night fireworks to music in a way that took the audience on a ‘race through time’ as per our theme, using tracks from different eras with perfect timing and buckets of humour. Afterward we heard from visitors coming from multiple countries who claimed that was the best fireworks they had ever seen! Kelvin’s ingenuity isn’t limited to only the fireworks. He is one of the team, joining in with Classic Fighters meetings to identify where pyrotechnics could be used to best effect and coming up with his own innovative suggestions. Creating a variety of special effects, including exploding a V2 on the launch ramp. Another purely Kelvin idea was a panjandrum, propelled along the airfield. All was done with the upmost care for health and safety, but the audience was totally taken by surprise. We look forward to see what Fireworks New Zealand comes up with next!

CEO Marlborough for Fun
Over the past several years Marlborough 4 Fun has utilised Fireworks New Zealand at 2 of our key events; the Christmas Festival and the New Year’s Eve – Ignite Marlborough. Fireworks New Zealand have produced cost effective displays which we feel are wonderful. Building on each show, they become bigger and better every year, coming up with new innovations. These included the pyromusical display at Ignite, rooftop and stage displays at the Marlborough 4 Fun’s Christmas Festival. Fireworks New Zealand are very easy to work with. They are very professional always providing the necessary regulatory paperwork and ensuring all safety and insurance requirements have been submitted in a timely manner. We enjoy working with Fireworks New Zealand.

"Kelvin and Jane have given their time generously to numerous members of the Top of the South Film Productions. Their expertise with pyrotechnics and safety as well as professionalism on set is second to none."
"Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart! I had meant to get a thank you out, but got swept away in it all. The display was an absolute hit, and I was so impressed! What an awesome display! It blew away all my expectations. My wife (!) had no idea, and we watched the whole thing from the rooftop balcony, it was something we’ll never forget (along with the rest of the guests I’m sure!). Everyone commented on how amazing it was, and the hearts were perfect! Thanks again for making it possible, and for looking after the whole thing from start to finish. I had no idea what was involved, but you made it very easy for me, and I appreciate it a lot. What you created is now a memory we will never forget, and I’m sure will speak of for many years to come."

The Dream Maker, Celebrant and event coordination.
"I was delighted to work with Kelvin from Fireworks New Zealand who provided a spectacular firework display for my business The Dream Maker on behalf of Conor and Louise who were married in October 2013. Conor is from Ireland and Kelvin really themed the event to the Irish. There we patterns and colours I had never experienced at a firework display before. Kelvin was extremely professional and organised all the legal paper work for the event, which was not easy as the display was from a boat in the Kaiteriteri Bay, which has a lot of stipulations. I will certainly be recommending Kelvin and his company again and hope for another treat in the future. I wish Kelvin all the success in his business in really brightening up everyone's night!"
