A Pewter Wedding Candlestick – Claddagh (9″ Wide). This candlestick holder holds your two tapers on either side and your large pillar candle in the middle. This is a necessity at a wedding, known as the Unity Candle. The two tapers symbolise the bride and groom – two people from different families. 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.
