Useful Information / FAQ’s

Candles and sizes  Only the best British and European non scented pillar and taper candles are used to personalise your candles. Candles can per personalised to be lit, as a keepsake or with an LED flickering tea light.  Under normal conditions all candles are dripless and non smokeless.   In White or Ivory with a choice of 7 sizes from 8 cm  to 40 cm.  The best size candle will be offered for each design. The 8 cm candles will be gift wrapped in clear cellophane and tied with an organza ribbon.  All other candles will be gift wrapped in clear cellophane, tied with an organza ribbon and presented on a glass candle plate.    I endeavour to source all other components needed locally.

Font style  I will use ‘artistic licence’ when personalising your candle, however, should you wish to have a specific style font I will be happy to help you.  Please let me know as soon as you receive a proof and I will and re.send to you before personalising your candle.

Design / Use  Personalised pillar candles will have been designed to be kept as keepsakes and not to be burned, unless requested to do so and will have therefore been personalised accordingly. The burn time on Personalised Memorial Candles / Absence Candles / Wedding Candles and the In Loving Memory Candles will have been adjusted to be between 6 and 15 hours, this will depend on the size of the candle and the design.  More details will be given on request.  Unfortunately Candles2Cherish cannot be held responsible for any candle that has not been used in the manner that was intended. 

Storage and candle placement If you are purchasing a candle in advance and intend to store away or are purchasing a pillar candle to place at a graveside, please bear in mind that your candle is wax and should not be left near heat such as a fire or radiator or in direct sunlight as this may cause the candle to warp, loose its shape or discolour. Nor stored too cold as this may cause the candle to crack. All personalised pillar candles are waterproof.

Urgent Orders… Welcomed   Once I receive your requirements I will forward a proof to view and approve, once you confirm all OK, I will personalise and arrange to post you… remembering that if outside the UK  you will need to add the days taken for the shipping time needed.

Unity Candle Sets  The lighting of a Unity candle is becoming more and more popular.  The ceremony symbolizes the pledge of unity between the bride and groom and the merging of two families.   The Unity Candle Sets are personalised on one large non scented pillar candle with two personalsied taper candles in White or Ivory.
