When one of the original team behind Earth Hour organised her wedding, the eco credentials of all the partners that went into making her day magic were critical. Being a bit of a style maven the look was just as important. She came to us wanting the candles to be the centrepiece of every table. Rather than volumes of flowers thrown away at the end of the night, the bride opted to keep the table decorations very simple with one of our large honeycomb pillar candles in the centre of every table and a smaller beeswax pillar candle at each place serving triple duty – bomboniere/wedding favour gift, place holder and ambience creator. Using candles as the table centrepiece is an idea that is a fraction of the cost of what many brides spend on flowers alone and then had an abundance of candles left over on the night to light up their honeymoon (and probably about the first 5 years of married life given how long our beeswax pillars burn for)!
Our bride had the venue turn the lights to their lowest setting to allow the candles to create a magical and romantic ambience on the evening. Look at the incredible warm glow created with all those golden, bee created flames.
Each hand-rolled, pure honeycomb, beeswax pillar candle was wrapped with twine and a place card for each guest… a bomboniere gift for them to take with them at the end of the evening. As a bride said to me once, every time one of our friends lights their wedding favour candle they’ll be thinking lovely things about us and you can’t buy that sort of karma!
If we’ve lit your wedding or event (no matter how big or how small) and you have beautiful, professional quality photographs showing the candlelight on the occasion that you’d be happy for us to share, please email them to me and we’ll give you a $25.00 credit on your next order. We’re also happy to provide credit to the photographer.
Sweetness & light and all things bright,
