This ceremony is for married couples who wish to celebrate renewing their marriage vows in a unique and personal ceremony. It is also called re-affirmation or renewal of vows.
These ceremonies have no legal effect and are not legally binding on those who participate. This is an opportunity to share a symbolic and sentimental ceremony that shows family and friends you are so glad to you married.
The renewal of vows ceremony is a great option for couples who have married overseas (or as we did elope). You get to have another fantastic day to reaffirm your love and commitment to each other but this time your friends and family are able to join in every aspect of the celebration.
These ceremonies are sometimes associated with a special wedding anniversary showing you’ve made it to 10, 25, or 50 years together and you want the world to know that you’d do it all over again if you could.
For some couples, the ceremony is just as appropriate at any stage of marriage. It is sometimes relevant to those who have been through periods which put a strain on their relationship, and who wish to celebrate their commitment to each other. Other couples choose to do this when they were not able to have the ceremony of their choice on their wedding day.
Renewing wedding vows can be a meaningful and touching ceremony for you, your children, family and friends. As a married couple, it is a time to pause and reflect on where you have been and where you are going. It is also a wonderful way to show your husband or wife how much they still mean to you.
Special people in your lives can take part in your ceremony, your children, guests who were at your wedding or friends and relatives. You may want to ask two people to witness the signing of a special Certificate of the event. These ceremonies have no legal effect and are not legally binding on those who participate.
Any married couple, of any age, and married for any length of time, can arrange a Renewal of Vows Ceremony.
If you are considering this please don’t hesitate to contact me as I would love to help you to create a ceremony that shows the love, strength and significance of your marriage.
Also to be there for you both on your special day as you affirm this before your family and friends would be a great honour.
