Renewal of vows

A renewal of vows ceremony offers an opportunity for any married couple to celebrate their love and commitment to one another in a unique and personal ceremony.

Although these ceremonies are generally associated with a special anniversary such as silver or ruby wedding, they are increasingly popular with couples who have married abroad and wish to have a ceremony in which friends and family can participate. Couples who have been through a period of difficulty may wish to renew their commitment to each other, for example after overcoming an illness.

A renewal of vows ceremony is as individual as the couple arranging it.

As well as renewing your promises to each other, you may choose to exchange new rings or gifts to mark the occasion. You may wish to acknowledge your children, or involve friends and family members through non religious readings or sharing memories of your wedding day. Depending on the number of options and readings that you wish to include in your ceremony, it will last around 20 to 30 minutes and there will also be time for photographs to be taken at the conclusion of your ceremony.

A commemorative certificate, signed by you and the celebrant, will be presented to you.
