Center weighted metering would not have produced that effect - it still would have taken more of the scne into account. Spot metering might have produced this if aimed directly at the candle. My theory, though, is that another flash went of at the exact moment your camera was metering, and your camera endd up metering off that flash, thus setting a very high shutter speed. Then the light was gone by the time the shutter actually opened. I'm on my iPad and can't see th Exif, if indeed any is present - can you post the ISO, aperture, and shutter speed?
That sounds like the most likely cause to me.
Has happened to me before actually. Its part of the reason why some live performance places dont allow flash photography lol.
