Looking for a unique idea for wedding favours? Want to gift your guests something that you know they will really appreciate, keep and use? What about a gorgeous bespoke scented candle encased in glass and complete with their name in calligraphy on the side. Or a scented candle in a chic gold tin with your newly wed names and wedding date on the label?
Evermore London, the latest member to our unique festival wedding directory, create the most beautiful and elegant bespoke scented wedding candles, hand-poured in London by founder Sarah Bell using a sustainable soy and coconut wax blend. They are scented using a mix of essential oils and toxin-free fragrances to create scents that evoke a sense of place and time and are the perfect keepsake of your wedding. Everyone loves a scented candle and when they are designed as beautifully as these ones, you know your guests will be lighting them up for many months to come!
Evermore London supplied us with some personalised candles for a shoot we did back in June (pictures coming very soon) and my goodness do they smell and look beautiful. I love them so much that I have them displayed all over the house. They are such a lovely gift for your guests and with a minimum order of only 10, they cater for even the smallest of weddings.
Sarah, the founder and creative mind behind Evermore, talks us through her candles, their bespoke design service and the gorgeous scents they offer….
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m Sarah and I’m the founder of Evermore London. I started making candles about five years ago and it quickly became more than just a hobby. I launched Evermore in 2015 and the brand grew quicker than expected! After many requests and enquiries regarding wedding favours, we branched out into the wedding market last year and it was one of the best decisions we made.
Aside from making candles, I spend most of my time planning my next big trip with my husband and my dog, whether it’s a trip to the seaside or a flight to the other side of the world; I’m big into travel and adventure. I also enjoy yoga and have a strange obsession with space documentaries.
If you had the chance to go to any music festival, which one would it be and why?
I still haven’t been to Port Elliot Festival and it looks so beautiful. That’s definitely next on my list. Further afield, Worldwide Festival in France has been on my radar for a while and would love to go one day, the setting looks amazing!
What made you decide to start Evermore London?
I had got to the point in my career where I needed to make some big decisions, did I want to keep climbing the ladder or make something of my own. My family run their own businesses so I have a slight entrepreneurial streak from them and I decided to make the jump. It’s been really exciting building a brand that I can call my own.
Tell us a bit more about your chic personalised candles?
We offer our wedding favours in our six nature-inspired scents and brides can also choose their favourite custom design. We can go down to small runs of 10, so they are also suited to hen parties and gifts. Brides also have the option of sending in their own designs at no extra cost.
We’re soon launching a whole new range of designs, more to be revealed soon!
Along side our wedding favours, we also offer personalised candles hand-lettered by our trusted calligraphy partner. They make beautiful bridal party thank you gifts.
What is it about a scented candle that makes the perfect wedding favour?
Our favours provide a unique and personalised touch to weddings and it’s something that guests can take home with them and keep for as long as they want. Plus every time they do decide to light it up, the scent will transport them straight back to the big day.
What different scents do you offer and can couples mix and match?
We offer the six following scents –
Moon – Rose
Blush – Lilac
Light – Grapefruit
Grove – Pine
Tides – Wild Fig
North – Frankincense
Our most popular fragrances for weddings tend to be Moon and Tides, and we’re more than happy for brides to mix and match their fragrances.
You mentioned that you can also supply personalised thank you gifts. Can you tell us a bit more about this?
We offer a personalised service on our 250ml Moon candle, where brides have the option to add the name of their bridesmaids or family across the front. We work closely with our calligraphy partner on these and they go down really well with our customers.
If our readers were to book you for their wedding, what kind of service can they expect?
Some of our brides tend to order online, whilst some have questions and like to do everything over email – either option is totally fine with us. Once an order has been booked in, we will send over a mock-up of the label for brides to sign off before they go to print. Following this, we get production of the candles booked in and we generally allow up to 4 weeks for delivery. If we get an order from a bride who is getting married within the next week or so, we can look at the schedule and hopefully can always accommodate last minute bookings.
Absolutely perfect – exactly what I wanted and in a tight time frame. Simple and effortlessly chic little favours. Thank you Sarah.
Very happy with product and customer service. The bespoke candles make great gifts – the personalisation makes all the difference.
I came across Evermore and I was extremely happy. I offered the wedding favours as a wedding gifts and everyone was very impressed. I honestly cannot recommend Sarah and Evermore enough. I ordered the wedding favours 10 days before the big day. We had a great communication throughout the whole process, from the order to the delivery.
How do couples know if Evermore London is right for them?
