Personal and symbolic
The lighting of the candle is a ceremonial acknowledgement that the godparents or mentors accept the responsibility associated with mentoring. The flame of the candle represents the light that will guide and protect the child through life’s journey, and the personalised candle is a lasting reminder of the child's special day.
This special day may be called a Naming Ceremony or a Dedication, or a Welcoming into the Community. There is sometimes a cross-over with baptism and christening in terms of symbolism, so please have a look also at the category 'Baptism' above, and let us know if you wish to opt for a tailor-made design. We will endeavour to accommodate your request and work with you to provide you with exactly the candle you wish for.
Please note that all our candles are presented in quality gift boxes, included in the price as shown.
If you are looking for a present for the child or parents, please visit our category Gift Candles, as well as Child Birthday to view our 'Life Light Candles'.
