You may be celebrating 10, 20 or 50 years as a couple or simply been married just a short time but changes in your life have meant you’d like to say ‘I do’ once more. A Renewal of Vows is the perfect occasion for this. A time to reflect, celebrate and look forward to your future together as partners for life or husband and wife.
It's an opportunity to re-declare your love for one another in front of your family and friends where you might repeat the same vows you originally had in your wedding ceremony or perhaps even create new vows to express your love. It's entirely your choice!
With a Celebrant led Renewal of Vows Ceremony, your ceremony can be completely personalised. It can include special memories, the reasons why you are renewing your vows and old and new commitments to each other.
Many couples decide to re-exchange the same rings but some couples choose to add new ones. Sometimes couples like to buy each other a new piece of jewelry, or just the renewing of promises is enough. It's entirely your choice and what you feel most comfortable with.
The Ceremony can involve your loved ones through the readings of poems and other symbolic gestures, songs, meaningful words and maybe include a ceremony enhancement in your special day. Including families into the Renewal of Vows Ceremony is a lovely way to celebrate your love as a family, and respect their place in your marriage. You can involve them with symbolic additions such as lighting candles together, planting a tree or taking part in a Sand Ceremony to mention a few.
