About Londonland & Candle Snob ®

Hello & Welcome!

I'm Hazel Ponting and I'd like to welcome you to my world of Londonland & Candle Snob. I'm a wife and mother of three living in England, owner of an elderly Pug called Berty & a chubby Rottweiler named Winston. My favourite things include art, photography, exploring, animals, thunderstorms, the sound of church bells, abandoned old mansions and the smell of freshly cut grass. My least favourite thing is cooking, my smoke alarm tells me I'm actually quite dreadful in the kitchen! 

Candle Snob ® is a later addition to the Londonland family, combining my love of a scented home with my passion for art, using only the finest luxury fragrances and ingredients from the UK.

As a small family business, I'm pleased to also have the help of my brother making recycled wooden & copper home fragrance accessories for Candle Snob from his dutch barn in Buckinghamshire.

All of my boutique greeting cards & artwork candles include many elements of my photography, taken whilst travelling around London and the World, on the farm, in the kitchen and anywhere else that inspires. These images are then combined digitally into quirky, eclectic and sometimes eccentric artworks. One of my favourite missions was taking the family along on a summer trip to photograph Reindeer in July! All artwork for my products and labels are designed and produced by me, just outside London England.

I use only quality card stock for my cards which comes from eco-friendly FSC Certified sources, reducing the environmental impact & using responsibly forested paper. Greeting cards are a good sized 6" square and supplied with a hand embossed envelope.

I hope you enjoy my products as much as I have enjoyed making them. If you'd like to see what our customers are saying, you can visit the reviews page. If you'd like to follow my journey, you can see more on Instagram and Facebook using the links at the bottom of the page.
