These photos were kindly sent by Erin-Renee's parents to show us their special candle in use on the day.
Any such photos are very precious to us, as, quite literally, they bring our candles 'to light'.
The following message accompanied the photos:
Hope these two photos are ok. It was rather breezy on Sunday so lighting the candle was a little bit of a mission but we got there! I thought the candle looked just great and my sister proudly held it through the ceremony. We had lots of wonderful comments on how beautiful it was and where had we got it?!! Everything went really well and we all had a great day.
Thankyou again for making the occasion extra special. We have carefully wrapped the candle up again and stored it away to show Erin-Renee one day.
Hopefully we'll be in touch in the future, needing another candle!
Until then, all the best.

DANIELA & JOACHIM's Wedding in Southern Germany
This candle was a creation for my dear friends in Germany, who enjoyed a fairytale wedding in glorious surroundings. Shades of orange and brown with silver was the colour theme throughout their stationery, flowers and decorations. A large selection of Coromandel sea shells, specially poured in these tones in wax, reminded the couple of their happy time spent in New Zealand.
These cube vessels embellished with cream roses, musical notes and fleur de lis created a warm soft light during HELEN's French themed dinner party.
Simple but elegant pillars feature the same message on opposite sides of the candle, and together with fine gold wax bands set the tone at DIANE's Birthday Party.
