Candles feature in many of the worlds ceremonies. A large number of burning candles can be truly spectacular. They can define a path or edge a ceremony. The arrangement above symbolises the four classic Greek elements of Air, Fire, Earth and Water. Candles can be purely decorative or they may play a symbolic role in a wedding ceremony. The large pillar candle from a unity candle ceremony can be relit on each anniversary. I supply extra tapers to last many years
The interwoven continuous lines of the Celtic love knot symbolise the eternity of love and the journey of two lovers through life together.

If you are planning your wedding for a more popular month you may need to book your wedding celebrant some time in advance, perhaps more than a year. I only perform one wedding ceremony per day, sometimes I may be able to perform a morning naming ceremony on the same day as I have an afternoon wedding ceremony to perform. If my calendar indicates I am booked I may be able to recommend another marriage celebrant, please contact me.

Two individual taper candles are used to light the pillar candle in a unity candle ceremony. The two small single flames unite to produce the greater stronger warmer flame. Greater than the sum of its parts.When children have a role in the ceremony they too, each have a candle & share in the lighting of the main pillar candle..
