Julie Antonette, rehearsing the script
A Renewal of Vows Ceremony is a very special way to declare your continuing commitment to each other before family and friends.
Couples who eloped or had a "destination" wedding may choose to renew their vows shortly after the original wedding at a gathering for family and friends who were unable to attend the wedding. Others
may choose to renew their vows on a special anniversary, such as the 10th, 15th, or 25th.
Or some couples choose a Renewal of Vows ceremony if they have lived and married
abroad so that family and friends 'back home' can celebrate their marriage with them.
Some choose to recommit to one another after going through a difficult period in
their lives. Creating a Renewal of Vows ceremony is an opportunity to reflect and focus on the positives and the reasons you came together in the first place.
create for you a personal, meaningful ceremony in which you might reflect on the reasons you fell in love and married in the first place, some memorable moments from the years you have spent together and your hopes for your future.
As the ceremony is not a wedding or civil partnership you may choose not to have bridesmaids or groomsmen in a Renewal of Vows Ceremony. Instead, you may wish to have attendants such as children, parents or friends
that have had a major impact on your lives to stand with them. You might also ask your original wedding attendants to again stand with you.
There are no set rules for a
Renewal of Vows Ceremony so together we can create something unique and memorable and entirely personal to you.
