What I love is that couples are moving past the standard white tapered candles and exploring with colours. Coloured candles are a great way to add a pop of colour to your wedding day. They are also a great way to add depth and texture of the same colour. For me a greenery foliage runner and grey candle is the perfect understated table design, which is easily recreated and suits any style venue.

With the increase in unique and blank canvas venues, more on this in another blog, candles are the perfect addition to add romance and atmosphere. More couple are choosing venues with great architecture and raw natural characteristics from old barns with original stones walls, warehouses with industrial exposed wall and metal beams. For me designing your wedding is about enhancing your venue and its unique elements. Candle light is the perfect way to do this, it will not over power and correctly placed will show of the areas and features you wish.

I am a lover of dark rich candles, black candles look amazing! With black on the rise they are the perfect way to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your table design. Think rich dark opulent colours with your florals adorned with black candles, I can think of nothing more decadent!

The easiest way to add this trend to your wedding is through is glass jars and white pillar candles and you can’t go wrong. This can be for table centrepieces, feature area or larger ones all down your aisle.
A little more costly option but a huge favourite of mine are Ester & Ericks cone candles. With a plate under to catch the any drips below they will last the day and night. Ester & Erick candles are great as they are non-drip if not exposed to a draft but if in an open space a simple plate will do the trick to catch any small drips.

So that is my first 2019 wedding trend prediction. Do not underestimate the power adding candles can have on your wedding design. They add height, texture and ambience to any table. They are the perfect tool to turn, steps, windowsills or aisles into the a magical feature area. They work well in all seasons but are the perfect winter wedding accessory!
