Christening is the first formal ceremony in baby’s life and parents like to make it a special event for themselves, their families and a memorable occasion for baby as s/he grows older. This is where personalised christening candles shine (no pun intended).
Unlike ‘off the shelf’ candles, a bespoke candle is very personal to the child and will remain so through time in photographs. Taking time before the christening to order a personalised candle makes all the difference. Allow at least 1 week from time of ordering to collection for the artwork to be completed. Decide on the text you want on the candle and choose a good quality photo to have imprinted on the wax. Check all dates and spellings before sending it to print.
If in any doubt, make an early call or visit the person who is customising it to prevent any obstacles or problems delaying the work. Ask any questions at this early stage so any issues can be resolved without delaying the work.
Re-use Christening Candle to Reaffirm Vows
Christening candles are often used again when the grown child re-affirms their vows in confirmation, this makes a personalised candle extra special as it is reused again in a very personal way making a real and tangible connection between the vows made by god-parents on the child’s behalf and again when they re-affirm their vows themselves
Christening Candles Presentation
Personalised Christening Candles usually come wrapped in cellophane and ribbons, nestled in a nice tissue-lined presentation box – ask about this when ordering as they make great storage boxes to preserve the candle until it is next required.
A candle personalised with text and perhaps a photo of the baby looks great in photos of the day and is a lovely memento for the child in later years.
