Athenry Candles is a small family run business started in 2016 and based in Athenry, Co Galway. 

We started making our product after a fantastic course where we learned soap and candle making and are since delighted to share our passion. We design and make personalised Wedding Unity Candles.

Our Personalised candle is 100% Hand-Finished and Hand-Decorated. We don’t use any stickers or plastic wraps that could peel off after some time. We incorporate all the images and text details into the candle wax, giving the candle smooth satin-like finish. 

Our special coating process will ensure your candle lasts a lifetime!

We were delighted with the candles we ordered for our wedding ceremony. The customer service at Athenry Candles was excellent. They could not have been any more helpful. I would have no hesitation in suggesting this company to other couples looking to buy candles for their wedding. We also ordered memory candles for my parents and my uncle, which were beautiful. The candle for my uncle was an addition to the order after it had been placed, but there was no problem having the order amended. Thank you to all at Athenry Candles!

The glass vase we ordered was actually broken on arrival. The courier was a little heavy handed, arrived smashed. Thankfully we opened it to take a look before the wedding. Anyway, after seeing it broken, we made contact with Athens Candles and sent them pictures. Well, what happened next blew our minds. They apologised, they said they would send another free of charge and would be there within 2 days. We asked if we could have it collected, instead of the risk of the courier breaking it again. No problem. Collected many my parents, perfect product. Couldn't be happier with the the product.

Very good service. Product was fabulous. Bigger and heavier than I had imagined but still fabulous. We did struggle to remove 1 sand bag from inside the holding vessel, we did order extra sand, but we got there in the end. Transport of product to us was wonderful. Please note transfer from venue to home it needs to travel upright! I chose black and white sand to match where it is now displayed. Black is not the best choice with the inscription being black also, that was my colour choice!! But I absolutely love it as an everyday reminder.

This site is easy to personalise your order and great value. Great quality glass jars and arrived pretty quickly too. The lady also was very helpful as I asked for the date not to be added incase we needed to change again due to coronavirus, she sent it to me separately to use if it goes ahead or said she would sent me an alternative date if needed!

She gave me options on not just colour of ribbons I wanted but types of ribbon, I got to customise the text, there was so many options to make the item individual to me. The quality was honestly excellent and it surpassed my expectations. The customer service was genuinely excellent and I would 110% use again and will be recommending to all my friends and family.
