A Unity Candle Ceremony can easily be added to any marriage ceremony. It is placed near the end of the ceremony, following the Exchange of Rings.

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!

Sometimes, 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.

Once 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 becoming one.

When 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.
