Candlelit or Candlelight?

While I am writing for an article, I suddenly got confused. Which word should be more correct to use - candlelight or candlelight? Well, I am not an English native speaker so it is shameful on my part if I post an article with wrong grammar. I suddenly thought of Mr. Google. Oh yes, my best buddy whom I can rely on situations like this. I can count on him every time I encounter different questions and needs. But then, I got more confused! There are lots of answers from different people. How about you folk, what do you think is better to use?

The candlelight provided an eerie glow in the library.

The candlelit dinner was very romantic.

I didn't want to vote, because the answer is more complex than your poll allows for. I wrote you a post instead. I hope it helps :)

It depends on the context - Candlelight is a noun and Candlelit is an adjective.

What Kasman wrote. Both are correct and it depends on what you'll use it for.
