Frequently Asked Questions.

We've put together a list of the most common questions we're asked. If you what you want to know isn't here, please feel free to e-mail us with your query.

What is preset?

When we preset our candles we actually pour the candle itself around a nightlight. This means you cannot burn the candle down as it is not wicked through. Once the nightlight is burned down insert a new nightlight and do not take out the foil that is already set in your candle. Only our flat top candles come preset.

Why do we preset?

Several people contacted Jennie after they had lit their candles once too often asking her could she build them up again. With preset if things get a little amorous during you 20th wedding anniversary and you forget to blow your candle out, when you check it the following morning the night light will have burnt out and your design will still be on the candle, and you will have enjoyed your anniversary.

Do I have enough time?

Wedding orders take approximately 3/4 weeks, christening orders 1/2 weeks. Our busiest time is January through to September, we like as much time as you can afford to give us in that period. However we get at least 3 to 4 last minute orders a week that we allow for. If you are not sure please contact us by email or telephone and we will do our best for you. If you have very little time, please stay with the design on offer within the site. Custom design can take a while.

Colour of flowers?

We purchase most of the basic colours. We dye the rest to suit your needs. If it is an unusual shade, a sample is always appreciated, either by email or post.

Colour of candles?

As our specialty is wedding we stay with the classics; Ivory and White. If it is a large order we might consider dying our candles a different colour.

Colour of Text?

We prefer to stay with a black text as it displays best on the candles. However, if you do wish a different colour please ask us, but do stay with a rich dark colour. Pale blues, yellows, pinks and the like would not show up very well on your candles.

Can I change the wording or verse?

Yes. So long as we can fit it on the candle, you just supply the wording and a different verse.

How much are the wooden bases?

Where featured, the wooden bases are included in the cost. All our stands are hand-turned in a part of our own workshop. When you order a set of candles, the stands are made from a single piece of timber so they all match.
