Wedding Unity Candles

Your wedding day is special day for you both, let us make it more special with our personalized wedding candles.

The lighting of a Wedding Unity candle is a relatively recent addition to the traditional wedding ceremony. The unity candle ceremony uses two taper candles with a large pillar candle (called the “unity candle”) in the centre. At the beginning of the wedding ceremony, a representative from each family (usually the mothers of the bride and groom) light the two taper candles. Later in the ceremony (usually after the formal vows), the bride and groom use the two taper candles to light the large pillar (unity) candle together. It is sometimes performed to symbolise the joining together of the two families, and their love for the bride and the groom, into one united family that loves the new husband and wife. More often it is to symbolise the union of two individuals, becoming one in commitment.
