I have my twin boys christening on Saturday and I have 2 large church candles to be blessed. I am wondering if I sent them to you could I get their names and dates of birth and christening date put on it and maybe in a nice box.
Hi Aoife I’m sure it would be possible to engrave the candles for you and depending on the size of candles I should have boxes for them. If you’d like to send me a photo of them I’ll have a pretty good idea anyway. Not sure I’d get them engraved in time for Saturday though! depends where you’re located. Certainly you can post them to me or again depending on your location i could possibly collect them after the celebration. I can be contacted by phone at 087-2761924 or email email@example.com to let me know what suits best. Kind regards. Paula
I’m getting married in 2 1/2 weeks time 22nd June & I’m looking for a memorial candle to light at the church to remember my mother.
Can you advise if you could make something for me with Mams photo and maybe a poem and if you could have it ready in time or am I cutting it to fine?
Dear Joanne, thank you for your inquiry. I’d be delighted to create a candle or globe for you to remember your mum at your wedding. Here’s a link to photos of previous memorial/remembrance candles http://www.flickr.com/photos/paulasheridan/sets/72157623872258479/
As you can see I’m afraid I don’t put photos on the candle (could do so on a personalised box or card to accompany the candle though) Perhaps I could engrave and paint a particular favourite flower your mum might have had, or a dove or celtic cross, butterfly, a quote from prayer or favourite quotation. Another design you might like would be a family tree/tree of life with all the family names engraved and painted in the tree – a dedication to your mum could be engraved on the opposite side?
Another suggestion I would have would be wax globes – they come in 2 halves with a candle in the centre. The globe is made from wax but doesn’t burn away. I can engrave and paint designs – perhaps a swirl / butterfly/ and script – either just her name and / or quotation!
If you’d like to email me any ideas you may have I’d be happy to make suggestions! Send to firstname.lastname@example.org (y for yahoo!), or telephone 0872761924
Prices vary from approx €25/34/45 depending on candle size (6×3), 8×3 and 10×3. (+€10 for personalised box) Globes are €40/50/60 for small (6″ diameter)/ 8″ diameter / 10″ I include a personalised card with all the options.
I’m based in Carlow and would be happy to deliver locally. If not I send candles with courier and cost is approx €7.50 – €9 depending on size.
In terms of time – if you could get back to me as quick as possible we should have enough time to have the candle ready for you.
Looking forward to hearing from you
