Drawing on over 20 years of experience, proprietor Mark and his team of expert technicians can help you realise the fantastic special effects that you have dreamed of. No idea is too big or too fanciful, as MTFX aim to achieve all that you are envisaging with an option of either original custom-made effects or bespoke additions to pre-existing effects.


Mark Turner set up MTFX 20 years ago and runs the business with his wife, Paula. They work together with a team of skilled professionals to produce all the effects that make up the MTFX repertoire - film and television fire special effects and pyrotechnics, smoke and rain special effects, aqua graphics, firedances and high voltage special effects.

Sheer ingenuity is the driving force behind MTFX, no matter how big or small each individual project may be. They have worked on large-scale, high-profile projects such as the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics and The Brit Awards 2013, regularly providing explosive pyrotechnics for Casualty, as well as countless weddings - they do it all.

Special Effects


One of MTFX's special effects that has immediate appeal to couples about to be married is their confetti. They have a range of 21 colours that are pre-cut into an array of different shapes for you to choose from. All their confetti is fire-retardant and bio-degradable as standard, but if you need to clear an outdoor space quickly, they offer an additional option of water-soluble confetti. Alternatively, the company can create bespoke, custom-shaped confetti on request.

MTFX provide everything from confetti launchers that range from small flicker sticks to disposable hand-held single-shot confetti launchers that can reach between four and twelve metres! They also have confetti blowers, cannons for a dramatic explosion or confetti spinners, which provide a romantic effect that is virtually silent. All of these can be dry-hired so you can do it yourself, or if preferred, you can choose to hire the experienced crew to operate it for you.

Artificial Snow Effect

MTFX are well-known for their artificial snow, so if you've always dreamt of a 'white wedding' but the weather isn't going to cooperate, this effect could be perfect. They can create a delicate and romantic snow effect; whether on a big scale and you hire the snow technicians, or a smaller scale and you need guidance and advice, MTFX will help.

The 'WOW' Factor

MTFX know that your wedding will be one of the biggest days of your lives and so making an impact is high on the to-do list. They have 'WOW' factor products which are sure to impress your guests and make it a day to remember.

MTFX can readily generate a smoke effect by means of their CO2 jets which disappear without a trace and on cue. If you want this element included in your big day, MTFX will make it happen! In addition, they also have the ability to make fire dance - yes, dance! 'Firedance' showcases eight-metre-high dancing flames that can be synchronised and choreographed to either recorded music or a live band or orchestra as a visually spectacular form of entertainment.

Dry Hire

For an alternative approach, MTFX supply a massive array of special effects equipment for you to dry hire and use, ranging from bubble machines, confetti launchers and dry-ice machines to flame bars or smoke and wind machines.
