Individual Candles are lit at the beginning of the ceremony, either by both of your clients, as a couple, or by chosen family members. At a later stage in the ceremony, usually after the rings have been exchanged, a centre candle (known as the Unity Candle) is lit from the two flames.
This ritual is a beautiful and incredibly symbolic way of passing love and tradition from the older generation to this new couple. The centre flame is a light of unity, representing two people who have come together, giving a spark of themselves to create a new light.
