Chris and Ash welcome you to Candlespower Online.
This website is brought to you by the request of the thousands of visitors from all over the World that have visited us at our shop, Candlespower, situated in the picturesque Welsh village of Betws y Coed in the heart of Snowdonia.
We have been pouring, hand crafting and personalising candles for almost 30 years. Each candle is made professionally, thoughtfully, and with pride, and is unique and individual to our customers’ own special requirements.
All our past and present customers are fully aware of the warm welcome, personal service and attention to detail that is provided with each and every candle made for them. This is the reason that we are now providing an online service for our customers worldwide, making life easier for those who are unable to return personally to our shop.
In the past we have been flown out, in the capacity of consultants, to set up and train the staff of new businesses in both Sydney and Melbourne, Australia. We were also involved in the setting up of a major Indian candle-making company and have demonstrated our skills in Japan, The Netherlands and various parts of Europe.
For many years our main business was the supply of hand-crafted candles to trade customers, although the same attention to detail was provided whether the customer was Harrods, Marks & Spencer, John Lewis or the individual proprietor of a small gift shop. This expertise is now available to you online.
One of our proudest commissions was being asked to carve a large candle for Pope John Paul. This was presented to the Pope during his historic visit to Wales. It signified the light of Catholicism alive today in our beautiful part of the world. Our wealth, experience and knowledge is now available to you online.

All candles made by Candlespower are all hand-poured and made to specific recipes to enhance burn time to the optimum and the glow of the candle when lit. Each candle is engraved by hand using a unique technique developed by ourselves over many years.
It is these techniques that provide such versatility for your own specifications. We do NOT use mass-produced transfers, inks or industrial printing methods to embellish our work. Each candle is completely unique and individually engraved.
Candles are supplied with the wording of your choice, i.e. Names; Date & Occasion, along with your choice of design.
A message or quote may be engraved on the reverse of the candle, i.e. “Love”, “Luck and Happiness Always”, “Love Mum and Dad”, “A Life of Caring and Sharing”, etc. Messages can be inscribed in the colour of your choice to match a bridesmaid’s dress colour, theme of occasion or decor. Every message is obviously extremely personal and is treated as such. There is no hidden charge for this service.
