Unity Candle Ceremony

This is a lovely addition to any ceremony. It involves three candles. It is performed to symbolise the joining together of the two families, and the love that they have for the couple. It is a nice way to involve Mothers or a special family member. They light the outer candles with tapers and then the couple light a centre candle simultaneously from their candles to signify the union of the two families into a new family unit while maintaining their individuality.
