I asked Sarah to come up with a catchy headline for this blog post and there it is!!

We’re lucky to have a very talented local painter, Stephen (just in case you hadn’t worked that out!), who now hand paints all of our personalised candles at Queen B and we want him around here more!!!  Stephen is a funny, quirky, breath of fresh air, and in hive of women it’s fresh air we enjoy!

So, here are few recent examples of Queen B personalised candles painted by our very own drone!

Such beautiful sentiment… and on a candle that’s going to burn for over 200 hours… the customer requested a light blue floral surround and away we went!

Another day, another amazing event lit with bee created light from Queen B!  Our brief for this occasion was to light a luxury, eco wedding at Catalina, Rose Bay.  Flowers by Grandiflora.

The ambience for this occasion was created with two types of candles:

  1. Firstly, we created bespoke candles for the bride and groom featuring the design on their wedding invitation.  We made 4 candles in total which were placed with a large floral feature as guests walked into the venue.

Funnily, my last boss (the lovely one who thought I was mad for giving up my well paying job to do Queen B) was at this wedding and seated next to a guest who upon seeing the candles burning recognised them immediately as being pure beeswax and started raving on about these ‘Queen B’ pure beeswax candles that she buys online etc etc.  He was proud as punch!  That was only two degrees of separation to a customer I had never met before but who had bought online for years.  It’s lovely how things come full circle.

If you’re organising an eco wedding or sustainable event and you’re looking for ambience that packs a punch and unique ideas, give us a buzz.  As an Australian manufacturer we can move fast and you can rest assured that you’re hard earned money made a difference many times over – not just to creating an unforgettable event, but to the jobs supported by buying Queen B candles.
