Creating a Marriage Candle
To symbolize the bonding act of marriage the bride & groom will be creating a marriage candle.
Each has chosen a colour of wax to represent them.Each brings to the candle a lasting beauty that forever enriches the combination.Your wax beads have created a candle and when it is lit & the wax melts, it further melds & bonds together and now it is the heart from which this candle burns.
This candle is also called a candle of Commitment because it takes two people working together to keep it aflame.
