Hot air Balloons make a spectacular addition to any event, making it truly memorable. We can provide both branded and unbranded balloons for tethers at weddings, festivals, private parties or a suitable corporate event.

Whether you are a bride and groom who wish to leave their wedding reception in style or simply wow your guests with a 20-50ft tethered experience whilst waiting for the wedding breakfast, these colourful creations make for excellent photos on the big day.

Our friendly pilot and crew will work around the needs on the day, ensuring your guests have fun.

Each event is unique, so if you think this might just add that extra something to your event please get in touch and we can chat through options and suitability.

We will need to do a site survey, but this is included in the price. If the weather is unsuitable for tethering on the day of your event and it is not realistic to reschedule, you will receive a full refund less a nominal admin fee*.

All tethers are subject to the weather conditions, but we will keep in touch in the days prior to ensure it is as smooth as possible.

*We will discuss weather possibilities with you prior to travelling. If we travel to the event, full payment is due.


We provide Balloons for filming purposes for Social media, music videos and adverts or films on TV. We have worked with ITV, BBC, Channel 4 as well as providing 2 balloons for a Bollywood film. Balloons provide not only an element of freedom and intrigue within a film but also a very stable platform for the camera person, as well as a unique birds eye view.

We are very flexible working at short notice or long term and can provide an array of props for hire. We provide a suitably qualified pilot and crew and copies of insurance can be provided on request.
