PanPank Candles | Business Branding Photography | Grace Elizabeth, Colchester, Essex, Devon, Suffolk and Norfolk Alternative Wedding and Family Photographer


Vegan, handcrafted, clean burning soy candles... The perfect calming essential I would say!

A few months ago I contacted candle makers PanPank to see if I could photograph their beautiful candles in order to share them with you all! I’ve wanted to do a little more branding photography for small businesses, and when I can combine that with sharing brands who have the same core values as myself, I consider it a massive win-win!

I’ve followed them for a while now, and I just loved everything the business stood for. As someone who lives an eco friendly lifestyle, I like to extend my beliefs to my purchases, my ways of living, and where I can, I like to share my findings with others - and here we are!

PanPank candles were an idea collaboratively created by Nic Panayiotou and Becca Pankhurst, in their little London workshop. They were born with the intention of helping customers to think differently about the candles they buy for their homes. I’ve known myself for a long time that paraffin wax candles are not only bad for the environment but they’re bad for your health, as they’re derived from petroleum which is harmful to inhale... So you can imagine my excitement to find out about PanPank candles which are made from soy, are vegan friendly (oh yes!), and made with only natural essential oils and wax. You could even reuse the hand-poured concrete hexagonal container they come in after! Perfect for my SD cards and rings, I think... or maybe tiny plant pots?! (As if I need an excuse to buy more plants anyway?!)

Still not convinced? Here’s a few details about how amazing they are!

Our packaging is 100% plastic free & biodegradable. Each candle has been carefully crafted from start to finish using soy bean wax and slow burning cotton / linen wicks which are infused with vegan friendly natural oils which are CLP compliant. Each candle has been finished and sealed with vegan friendly products and have around 10-12 hour’s burn time.

Becca and Nic were kind enough to send me three of their candles, The Awakened One (sweet orange and eucalyptus) The Loving One (juniper berry and bergamot) and The Calming One (lavender and ho-wood) - and I love them all equally! They are the perfect addition to my little calm space, complete with my beautiful yellow YOUR.BABYLON face pot made by CroucherLi and my six minute diary. Definitely check them out if you’d love to add them to your calm space, they’re wonderful!

Much love,
