Could you do it right after you are announced at the end of the ceremony? Instead of an end-of-the-night send off?  In my experience when the last dance is announced, house lights are turned on, and people start cleaning up, guests get the idea that it’s time to leave…

If you really want to have the sparkler send-off at night after the reception, you could always have people line up along the path leading to the front door of the estate, and you could then run through the line and into the building.

Jenniphyr’s idea is excellent!

You could also do sparkler send off and then take a long romantic stroll around the estate together, have a quiet moment to reflect together on the day.

We did hte same thing (stayed at the same location that night – as did many of our guests). We did a sparkler exit from the reception and then headed up to change and have a few minutes together. Then we came back down more relaxed and invited everyone who was still around to a relaxed after party!  It was great!

A lot of these ideas are great. You could still do the sparkler send-off, but notify your guests that you will be returning. I’ve seen this before. The bride and groom have a send-off, perhaps for the wedding video but certainly not all, and drive around for a few minutes, then return to continue partying with their guests. But I’ve also seen weddings where there wasn’t an official exit at all, just a staged "getting into the elevator and returning a few minutes later" kind of thing.
