Type of Ceremony: Basic / Traditional / Modern / other

Rituals & Symbols

Unity Candle : (Example)

The unity candle symbolises the new relationship or family, which is being created as distinct from the couple’s past life apart. Two taper candles, representing the couple as individuals, are used to light a single centre candle as a visible symbol of their commitment to each other. The flame represents the energy that is created when two people unite in one place, and can be included as powerful acknowledgment within the body of the ceremony. For example:

The flame of this candle burns steadily and bright, lighting your way forward in the world as two united as one. You both are charged with keeping this flame bright for the rest of your days, acknowledging that sometimes it may flicker and dim when life’s bluster becomes too strong. Yet know that what sustains it is the very air we breathe, life unto life, until our last breath. So be it with this union of two spirits.
