Welcome to my site.  If you’re looking for beautiful hand – crafted personalised candles you’ve come to the right place!   I love candles – the symbolism, the texture, the scent,…. the whole experience and I hope after having a look at some of my work you may understand why.

Whatever the celebration or occasion I can create beautiful and distinctive personalised candledesigns.  Each candle is individually hand engraved and painted to order, whether it be Christening,Naming ceremony, Wedding, Birthday, Graduation, Ordination, JubileeRetirement, Memorial……whatever you wish.   All commissions considered.

I would be delighted to hear from you to discuss any ideas you may have for a forthcoming celebration – we can create a design together or adapt any of my previous designs.    You’ll find inspiration in my gallery for your own Candledesigns!

Why not consider personalised Family Tree candles this Christmas – bringing the whole family to the Christmas table whether they’re at home or away!  Christmas Family Tree Candle

My craft and business –  The first Candledesigns Christening candle was created on the christening day of my eldest daughter Etain in 1994.  A household candle was transformed by engraving and painting her name and the date.  A year later we were joined by her sister Sorcha who was the recipient of my second ever personalised candle.  A short time later the third followed when my sister in law asked me to engrave a personalised candle for her daughter Ruth.  The idea has gradually snowballed from there, and since then I have created numerous personalised candles – not just for Christenings, but Weddings, Anniversaries, Corporate occasions, Ordinations, Jubilees, Memorials, & most recently Candles for the opening ceremony of the Pan Celtic Festival in Carlow in 2013

My hand crafted candles are presented with a personalised card in an elegant box – ready to be given as a gift or a family memento to treasure.  I can be contacted at [candledesigns at ymail.com].
