Sarah Ditchfield started making candles in her kitchen after her husband bought her a kit for Christmas. She then started organizing candle-making evenings at her home, and this led to a string of commissions from restaurants, hotels and independent shops. She also began selling candles across the UK and overseas, and her English Rose candles even went with some of the British Forces to Afghanistan.
In 2012 Sarah and her husband launched Candle by Parties (candle-making birthday parties) for children, which developed into events for schools as well as adult parties, including hen nights, Bar Mitzvahs, Women’s Institute groups, anniversaries and Diwali festivals.
In 2013 they had their first big corporate event for a pharmaceutical company and since then they have not looked back. Now trading as Candle by Events, they run company ice-breaker sessions, team-building and family fun days and have recently been asked to run an event in Los Angeles for a group of 400. Sarah has also demonstrated candle making at the Country Living Fair in London, UK.
