The name Jenny McCarthy is synonymous with Irish weddings. An industry powerhouse whose lens has been front and centre at nearly 2,000 nuptials spanning her 16-year career as a premier wedding photographer, including snapping the high-profile ceremonies of Pippa O’Connor, Glenda Gilson, Brian Dowling, Karen Koster, Lottie Ryan, Colette Fitzpatrick, Rosie Connolly, Suzanne Jackson and Irish Footballers Robbie Brady, Seamus Coleman, Alan Brogan, Glen Whelan, Denis Bastic, Donnie Vaughan and Paul Casey among many more. Known for more than just capturing special moments on the big day, Jenny is revered for her right-hand woman, hands-on approach and camera bag survival kit, giving her a unique insight into every wedding scenario imaginable. This industry knowledge led her to create something she felt was missing – a bespoke Wedding Candle.
The Wedding Candle by Jenny McCarthy has been in the making for the last 5 years, from inception, intense market research straight through to placing the products on shelves across the country, with Jenny involved in every element during the whole process. The Lime & Basil scented candle is a stunning result of this entrepreneur’s obsession to detail, her unique insights and quite simply her desire to create something bespoke and luxurious at an affordable and accessible price. What you have here is expertly produced product without the compromise; the ultimate gift be it for newlyweds, parents of the Bride and Groom or an anniversary memento.
Perfectly minimalist packaging aside, each candle is made using the utmost in skilled craftsmanship. It’s the personal touch and the delicate process that brings The Wedding Candle by Jenny McCarthy to life straight from the purchasing experience. This crisp white keepsake is presented to each recipient in a gift bag, which Jenny was insistent on including as it symbolises the act of giving a gift to yourself or someone special to you.
Upon opening, the first noticeable difference is its cylinder box, which mirrors that of the wedding ring. It is a circle which never ends and continues for eternity. The sprayed cylinder glass jar and candle wax are both bridal white, something Jenny spent weeks developing with sample upon sample tweaked to perfection.
The candle is topped with a weighted silver lid, which can be engraved at any jewellery store to add a special date or name. Each time you lift the lid, the clean, fresh and invigorating Lime & Basil aroma will engulf the room and bring back memories of your special day when it hits the tip of your nose. The scent is something Jenny worked hard to perfect and ensured it fit within her concept; for it to be something fresh, something soft and something calming. It’s a scent that lingers and drifts through your home without being overpowering, while bringing a sense of calm as soon as you walk through the door.
