I’ve sometimes been asked to engrave and paint customers favourite flowers on candles either for weddings, Naming ceremony, and recently an 80th birthday and golden jubilee. For weddings the engraved flowers can compliment the real thing!
These square candles were especially ordered for Anita & Philip’s wedding. Orchids being the flowers on the day. I usually use pillar type candles, but can source other shapes and sizes when requested.
