Let me introduce myself...

I'm Nicola - a Geordie Scot mixbreed, who loves a lot of sarcasm, florals and still listening to the Kerrang music of 2008. I live just outside Edinburgh with my husband and year old daughter. I also work at Edinburgh Zoo, as Business Development Manager for weddings and events.

I have worked in weddings and events for over a decade, and I have always been a crafter, a lover of being the personalised and quirky gift giver and my favourite part of any wedding or special events are the small touches each couple brings to their day and decor.

Coming across the trend of hand painted candles during lockdown I have been hooked on this as my creative outlet, having moved away from my wedding stationery and calligraphy hobby.

I LOVE being able to bring these gorgeous candles to creations from your vision, and so happy to hear they have been gifted on or enjoyed around your tables.

Every bespoke order is a direct collaboration with you - so let's bring your vision to life.

  • Taper Candles

    Candles just got more pretty to display. 

    These candles have around 6-8 hours burning time. These tapered dinner candles are painted with some doodles of mine or handlettered with non-toxic acrylic paint, which means you can burn these if you wanted to. 

    You can visit my Etsy site to shop current designs, or email me if you are looking for something bespoke.

    The possibilities are endless.

  • Pillar Candles

    Perfect for gifts and larger centrepieces displaying pillar candles instead of dinner candles. 

    The larger space allows for more design and adding in special touches as memorable gifts. 

    Why not recreate a wedding bouquet as an anniversary gift or use the space to send a lovely message wit their favourite colours and flowers.

  • Bespoke Wedding and Special Event Candles

    Create the most unique wedding favours or gifts for your bridal squad with florals painted in your wedding colours, and add some hand lettering to make these a lovely personal touch related to your wedding day. 

    Available as dinner candles or pillar candles.

    "Absolutely stunning candles. This is my 2nd order as I previously ordered bespoke Candles for my wedding. The quality is 2nd to none. Always the best designs we'll put together to last. You can really see the time that has been put in to making them perfect not just each order but the time to learn the skills too. Love that you can make them as simple or weird and whacky as you like, nicola always hits the brief exactly. Can't wait to order my next bunch!!"

    What a wonderful company! Nicola was fantastic and someone who completely understood what we were after! We previously had ordered some nuptial candles from another company and were totally disappointed to find that they delivered a plastic wrap with our names on! Which meant the candle couldn’t be used! I was feeling so disappointed, when that evening I came across Nicola’s page and sent a very garbled message asking if she could help! Nicola was super and restored my faith that we were going to find what we wanted for our wedding. I sent her our wedding invitation as an idea for colours and she produced us a lovely design for our candles. They arrived super quick and we are in love with them. I know all our family will enjoy them and we will light them not only on our wedding day but every anniversary too! Thank you
