About Us


On a Wick & a Prayer - The Candle Makers of Derbyshire

On a Wick & a Prayer are designers and manufacturers of quality British candles. Over the past 15 years we have steadily built a reputation for quality and innovation in design. Situated right at the Heart of England our location is reflected in our products which are only made in the Peak District and use only British sourced products.

On a Wick was started by Annie Maudling, who still oversees all aspects of the business, and is still run as a family business with a dedicated team of skilled artisan candle makers who have all been trained by Annie personally to produce all of On a Wick’s quality products.


We also have a shop at our workshop in the Village of Tissington, Derbyshire.
