While planning our wedding in 2009 we knew we wanted something different. It became a bit of a joke between us. We couldn’t buy “different” so we decided to have a go at making our vision a reality.
As much as possible was made at home including 50 candles in vintage shot and martini glasses. The first batch of Fresh Cut Roses candles were a success and twinkled the night away at our wedding reception
In 2010 “Little Bit Different” was born and in 2015 Vicky was able to give up her day job to create candles full time. With a passion for candles that not only look beautiful but smell amazing we only use top quality eco and vegan friendly soy wax and natural smelling UK made vegan friendly oils.
We are passionate about collaborating with other businesses so teamed up with a local illustrator who began creating gorgeous labels for us in 2018. Little Bit Different is now a real family affair with Vicky running the show and creating each candle and Chris, her husband overseeing the website and all IT and now turing label designs into reality. Vicky’s mum has stepped into the role of chief label applier and even the tiniest of tiny dogs is called upon for social media duties (she is paid in treats and cosy jumpers). The children are often roped in too with Shauna taking on a remote roll of social media and admin assistant while away at university studying psychology and Rowan advising on which fragrances smell best!
We are now proud to have over 50 stockists all over Wales, including The National Trust, St Fagans and Dwr Cymru, but we still get excited when we spot one of our candles on our travels around Wales.
Specialising in Welsh language candles and white label products.
