At Aubrey Bay, we’ve been hard at work over the last few months getting ready for launch. It’s been a long process which we have thoroughly enjoyed. Now, the Aubrey Bay site is live and our beautiful soy candles are available for purchase. It’s a very exciting time and if you’re reading this we’d like to thank you for stopping by. In this post, we’ll give you a little insight into us, where we’ve come from and hopefully where we are going.
Who is Aubrey Bay?
Aubrey Bay is us – Andrew and Amy. Amy is the director of Aubrey Bay and is in charge of product development, quality control and all things branding. The modern, minimalist and luxury feel of Aubrey Bay is Amy’s passion.
I’m the techie behind the website and support Amy with promoting Aubrey Bay online.
We are both committed to delivering exceptional products for home decor enthusiasts and candle lovers to enjoy.
The brand name, Aubrey Bay, comes from two distinct sources. Aubrey has roots on Amy’s side of the family and is a nod to strong females in her family. Bay, on the other hand, comes from one of our favourite family places in the world the beautiful Druridge Bay in Northumberland.
Put the two together, an amalgamation between feminine strength and natural beauty, and Aubrey Bay is born.
Why Soy Wax Candles?
We’ve long been a passionate user of candles and there’s one forever burning in our home. Quite often, we’d look at the candles we were using and wonder why they were so covered in soot. This soot would not only cling to the jar, but to the soft furnishings and walls of our home.
So we decided to do some research.
We then stumbled across soy candles and the benefits of using this wax in candles. Add this to a gap in the market for premium, hand made candles and we decided to turn our passion into a business.
It’s our belief that good business should always go hand in hand with ethically conscious products. We’ve worked hard to make sure our product is super ethical. As a starter, soy candles are kinder to the environment over that of the traditional paraffin candle. We make sure that our packaging is recyclable and that all of our ingredients are sourced locally within the UK. Our premium fragrances are 100% cruelty-free.
We understand that producing the optimal ethical product is an ongoing challenge and we will continue to strive to improve all aspects of Aubrey Bay in this area. It’s important to you and us.

We’ll continue to strive to bring beautiful products to people who appreciate a natural, ethical and healthy home.
