Stunning Reception Ambience
Nothing makes a romantic ambiance quite like a soft, flickering flame. Candles used in receptions instantly create an enchanting vibe that makes a wedding look magical and special. From taper candles to candelabras, these glowing decors are the perfect way to amp your wedding’s elegance and intimacy without going over the top. Think hanging glass candles projecting an amber glow throughout your big day. Candle decors work best on receptions held during dusk hours with the open flame adding a dramatic glow and stunning display to your event. You could even make a unique label for your candles and individualise each with guests names and use them as place holders.

Romantic Table Centrepiece
The soft allure of a candlelight adds a captivating charm to any wedding tablescape. It’s an instant mood setter and a perfect decor in case you’re looking to create a romantic table lighting with limited budget. When decorating your tablescape with candles, make sure to have soft candle lights that are intimate but not too bright. We can even add colour to your candles to match your wedding day theme or make a fragrance that complements your floral bouquets! For a centrepiece idea, go for a style that matches your wedding theme. If you’re after a glamorous tablescape, you can, for example, go for candelabras placed at the end of your tables to create a subtle elegance or surround the candlesticks with bright blooms for a stunning look.
