11 Dreamy Ways to Use Candles in Your Wedding

We showcased some gorgeous lighting ideas for winter weddings last month. There are so many ways to create a romantic atmosphere at this time of year and lighting is one of the best ways to go about it. From light up letters to fairy lights, there are lots of lovely ways to create a magical feel. Candles are one of our favourites though. There’s something so cosy about lighting up a pretty candle and that dreamy glow that comes with it. They’re an ideal way to decorate a winter wedding! There’s also so many ways you can use candles in your wedding from pew ends to centrepieces. We’ve rounded up some beautiful ways to include candles in your wedding below…
