Wick & Tallow attend the Belgravia Wedding Fair at the Halkin Hotel by COMO

Posted on April 10, 2014 by Web master

We were delighted to be asked to attend the Belgravia Wedding Fair hosted by The Halkin hotel, part of the prestigious COMO group on Saturday 5th April. Boasting a Michelin starred restaurant, The Halkin is one of Belgravia's best hotels constantly described by loyal regulars as a home away from home. The Belgravia Wedding Fair was a chance for Wick & Tallow to showcase our unique tailored candle service to wedding organisers and brides-to-be looking to add another dimension to the Big Day, alongside our existing range of candles. Set within the confines of what has become known as the Wedding Capital of London, The Halkin is surrounded by some of London's finest boutique services that can cater for all aspects of the most incredible weddings wherever they may be in the world.

This exacting and specialist fair brought together the likes of A La Carte cosmetics, John Nassari wedding photography, as well as wedding dress designers, event planners, honey moon organisers, flower suppliers and everything else you can think of to take the hassle out of your wedding day and make it the most special it could possibly be. All of this coupled with flowing champagne and stunning rooftop views of London combined to make it a hugely successful event with which to announce our entry into the wonderful world of weddings!

Wick & Tallow Family & Friends Party

Posted on December 09, 2013 by Wick & Tallow

Wednesday 4th December saw friends and family of Wick & Tallow descend on the London showroom for an evening of candles, cupcakes and cocktails! It was a brilliant evening that allowed us to say thank you to everyone who has supported us in one way or another to reach our launch. Cocktails were mixed in house by our (nearly) resident Dane, Alex Rykkje, served in wax pouring jugs to great amusement, and cupcakes were supplied by the incredibly talented Ella Prichard of Sugarella Cakes, with icing to match each of the Wick & Tallow candles in the current range. Bold colours were definitely the theme of the night, particularly as the cocktails were bright pink and there were plenty of brightly coloured balloons to be found, some of which are still on the ceiling!

Twitter and Instagram certainly got a lot of attention as everyone wanted to snap their cupcakes with their candles before being unable to hold back any longer. One man we spoke to had already had five cupcakes before he had even managed to find a drink! It was really lovely to see so many familiar faces (and some new ones too!) and get such incredible feedback about our products. It may have been the first Wick & Tallow party but we very much doubt that it'll be the last. Perhaps it's time to start planning our summer already...

PopUp Piccadilly goes live!

Posted on November 06, 2013 by Wick & Tallow

It's been a busy couple of days since we were asked to take part in PopUp Piccadilly, however, our store is now all set up and looking great! We have had an amazing day working with some incredible people who have been helping out with visual merchandising, bringing a wealth of experience from the retail world including department stores such as John Lewis and Selfridges. It's an eye catching set up, particularly when you see it in the flesh surrounded by all the other wares being sold by the companies we're sharing the space with. There's a great mix of products carefully selected by the PopUp Britain organisers, which together make for a fantastic shop to help you with your Christmas shopping! 

 

 

The doors open tomorrow (Thursday) from 10am and we will be trading daily (including the weekend) until the end of opening hours on Wednesday 13th November. If you haven't had the opportunity to come and see our candles and experience the scents yet then this is it!

We very much look forward to seeing you there and hope you'll leave with some great Christmas presents!
