Unity Candle Ceremony
The two outer candles represent your individual
lives before today. They represent all that you are from your vast experiences,
and they represent your individual families. As you each take a single candle
and light the centre candle, you will extinguish your individual candles.
Often the Bride will blow out the Groom's taper
candle and the Groom will blow out the Brides taper candle. This represents the
closing of the chapters in your individual Books of Life and the beginning of
new chapters as you begin to write a new book of Life as wife and husband!
two small candles burn throughout the ceremony, they symbolise the Bride and
Groom. A third larger candle remains unlit during the ceremony, symbolising
their life as one.
the Bride and Groom have exchanged vows and rings, they move to the burning
candles. Each takes a burning candle and together they light the third candle,
symbolizing their desire to put their relationship centre and foremost, two
the candles are extinguished, it is now that your single lives come to an end.
Jointly light the new candle together, the flame of which represents the special
& mystical moment you become one. Even though the flame of this candle will
be extinguished shortly, it will continue to burn brightly in your hearts.
