This makes for a unique gift for that special moment in every wedding. A Pewter Wedding Candlestick embossed with a Claddagh symbol and runs 9 inches wide. The holder holds two tapers on either side and the large pillar candle in the middle. This is a necessity at every wedding which is commonly known as the Unity Candle. They light their own taper, then both bride and groom use their tapers together to light the pillar candle in the middle, symbolising a new family, new life and new love.
The Claddagh symbol is taken from the famous love symbol designed in the town of Claddagh, Co. Galway in the 1600's. The symbolisms are "hands for friendship", "heart for love" and "crown for loyalty".
