ABOUT Love & Protect

Abby Crawford - Owner

Love & Protect was born in 2011 out of a passion for helping other people, and a love for candles!


In 2010, my small son and I were very fortunate to escape our house fire in the Hunter Valley - I literally carried him through the front door before the flames engulfed our home. A week later, I opened Love & Protect from our hotel room, with a mission to sell flameless candles to as many venues and homes as I could to save them from the risk of fire that had taken everything we owned.

"Love & Protect" has special meaning to me. It signifies that all is not lost when you are blessed to have someone who you can Love and Protect, and it worked beautifully for our flameless candles - that you can love candles, but protect yourself by having gorgeous flameless candles!

A dear friend asked me if I would place my candles at the Kardashian Kollection Launch at Hugo's in Sydney to assist the styling brief - and VOILA - Love & Protect became an event hire and styling business. 

We of course have many more products now, but I've always wanted to pay homage to the way we began, and so we are;-

                                     Love & Protect - weddings and events.

Thank you for visiting us, with love Abby xx
