The unity candle is a popular feature in wedding ceremonies today. While this meaningful ritual seems like something created a long, long time ago, it is actually a relatively recent addition to the typical wedding. The process involves one larger candle, usually a pillar, and two smaller tapers. The tapers are lit the, during the ceremony, the bride and groom will each pick up a taper and light the single wick on the larger unity candle. The symbolism is quite touching and the activity creates a great opportunity to capture beautiful photographs of the couple as they become man and wife.
Our unity candle collection covers a lot of ground with distinctive visual elements and styles. We also carry unity candle accessories like candleholders designed just for this purpose! Our Double Ring unity and taper candle holder includes simple hoops that symbolize the engagement ring. Our dome unity candle holder offers a more modern look with two half circle arms supporting taper holders that are attached to the larger pillar platform at the center.
The actual candles are just as breathtaking! Beverly Clark appears again in all the brand’s bridal glory! Our Beverly Clark unity candles include the Venetian Elegance collection which include white pillars wrapped in ribbon and a gorgeous skirt of lace. The Tie the Knot collection is very simple with a length of ribbon knotted around the pillar – a basic look with lots of meaning for newlyweds!
