The candle Ceremony represents light from multiple sources becoming one.
Traditionally, light symbolises hope, purity, and life. across different cultures and across religions light also has much symbolic meaning. We can see therefore, how light can play a beautiful part in a ceremony, whether that is a couples ceremony, a naming or a celebration of life.
If you want to stick to tradition within a wedding ceremony, two individual tapered candles can be lit by parents or mothers, before the couple light a single candle together from those two taper candles. This symbolises the joining of family, the creation of something, bigger and brighter.
However, if you want quirky or unusual, then there are a number of ways to use candle light in a safe and beautiful and creative way to enhance your ceremony. Let's sit down and work out a candle ceremony to put into the ambience of your special day. Nothing has to be predictable to be beautiful.
The candle could also be jointly lit by children of a blended family, friends and family of an individual who is going through a period of transition.
Another beautiful idea for an intimate celebration, is to have the person or a photo of a deceased person surrounded by lanterns, each lit by a loved one, surrounding that person in love and light. This is great for an outside evening celebration
The idea of everyone being encompassed in light, or two or more flames becoming one is a beautiful idea.
