Simple words that say so much.

Its been another busy week here at Candleabra HQ, creating lots of beautiful personalised candles for a variety of occasions. But one of the most frequently asked questions from our clients is what words shall I put on the candle.

Whatever the occasion finding the right words to convey your message is so important, so in this weeks blog we thought we would share some of our personal favourite poems and words for remembering loved ones no longer with you on your Wedding Day . Of course this is only a very small selection so if you are looking for something special please do let us know.

My wedding day brings so much pleasure,
I add today to memories I treasure.
But one person who I wish was here
Would be my mum, whom I hold so dear.
She may not be here with me,
But as an angel, I know that she can see,
Just how joyous a day this is
And an occasion she’d be sad to miss.
So even if we can’t be together
I know she will remember this day forever.’


Dear Lord please clear a spot for him;
he should have the perfect view.
His little girl’s a Bride today,
and I am counting on you.
Let me feel his presence;
as I journey down the aisle.
But let me notice his abscence;
if only for a while.
Let me stop to think of him;
As I am given away.
And know that if he could;
he would be here with me today.
Dear Lord please clear a spot for him;
he should have the perfect view.
And if he should get sad today;
Dear Lord I count on you.


Let this candle be a loving reminder
that someone is missing today,
Someone our hearts still hold on to,
As we travel along life’s way.
Someone who made life so special,
for all those who gather here,
Someone who won’t be forgotten,
But cherished from year to year.
And now as we pause to remember,
Let us all fondly recall,
how dearly each of us loved him,
and oh… how he loved us all!


My little Girl, Don’t cry for me
I’ll be right by your side.
I’d never miss out on this day
that you become a bride.

I’m here with you to hold your hand
and give your heart away
To a man God chose to take care of you
forever from this day.

Today, I place your hand in his
with blessings and with pride.
My little Girl, Don’t cry for me
I’ll be right by your side.


Although death has separated us physically, faith and love have bound us eternally.
Though we cannot see you, we know you are here.
Though we cannot touch you, we feel the warmth of your smile, as we begin a new chapter in our lives.

Today we pause to reflect upon those who have shaped our character,
Molded our spirits and touched our hearts.
May the lighting of this candle be a reminder of the memories we have shared,
A representation of the everlasting impact you have made upon our lives


Although we cannot see you we know you are very near. Smiling down upon us as we join our love so dear
Always in our thoughts forever in our hearts on our wedding day


Though we are separated physically,
Love has bound us eternally.

 Though we cannot see you,
We know you are here.

Though we cannot touch you,
We feel the warmth of your smile, as we begin a new chapter in our lives.


If Roses grow in Heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Mother’s arms
And tell her they’re from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
And when she turns to smile,
Place a kiss upon her cheek
And hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
But there’s an ache within my heart
Because I am missing her today.


Although we can’t see you
we know you are here
Smiling down, watching over us
As we say “I Do”
Forever in our hearts,
Forever in our lives,
And so we say our vows
In loving memory of you.


We stand today in front of family and friends
saying our vows and declaring our love
But there are people who are no longer with us
and are celebrating from above.
Their love we will always cherish,
and keep with us every day
For them to know we love and miss them
Is all we ask and pray.
So lets raise a toast to absent friends
and thank them for being part of our Special Day.
