Vow Renewals

Say “I do” all over again!

Vow renewals provide an ideal way to renew your commitment to each other and declare your love again in the presence of family and friends.

It is the perfect way to remember and celebrate why you fell in love with each other, the vows you made and to recall the life you have shared since that day. It is an opportunity to revisit all the milestones you have shared in your life together and celebrate the things you share day to day.  

Many people choose to renew their vows on significant anniversaries or following a particularly difficult period in their lives, however it is a purely personal choice and can be done at any time. Whatever your reason for wanting to renew your vows, I can create a unique and personal ceremony just for you.

Creating a tailored vow renewal ceremony

Popular elements of a vow renewal ceremony include readings, music, exchanging or rededicating of rings, and of course those all-important personalised vows. I love to get to know the couples I work with and incorporate their own unique story into the wording of the ceremony.

You can enhance your vow renewal ceremony by incorporating a symbolic component. This can be something from your own cultural background or traditions, something you have seen elsewhere, or completely your own idea.

You can involve your family and friends in the ceremony by them reading poetry, playing music, singing, or taking part in a symbolic component of the ceremony.

You may have plenty of your own ideas or perhaps you’d like me to offer some inspiration. I can provide information about a variety of symbolic elements that can enrich your ceremony, including the use of rings, candles, roses, sand and trees.

Where can we hold our vow renewal ceremony?

As there is no legally binding element to a vow renewal ceremony, you are free to hold a fully personalised ceremony anywhere you choose.

Your vow renewal ceremony can be held in a hotel, a country house, a church hall, a woodland, field, or even your own garden. It’s totally your choice. Hold your bespoke ceremony anywhere and anytime and be as formal or informal as you choose.

You may wish to hold an intimate ceremony for your family and close friends, or you may prefer a much larger celebration. Whatever you choose, I will create a vow renewal ceremony that will be exclusive and meaningful to you, tailored to reflect your personalities, family circumstances, values and beliefs.

How it Works

  • If you’re considering working with me on your vow renewal ceremony, the first step is to contact me for a chat about your wishes and requirements.
  • If you decide to go ahead and book me then the next step is for us to meet in person so I can get to know you and find out exactly how you’d like your ceremony to unfold. I’ll listen to all your ideas and provide information about the wide variety of options to enhance your ceremony. We’ll work together to create a ceremony all about you, reflecting your story, values and beliefs.
  • I will then create your personalised ceremony based on your wishes. If possible we’ll also attend the venue together to work out where everyone will be on the day.
  • Throughout the planning process I’ll be available by telephone, email, Facetime, Zoom, etc.
  • On the big day I will lead your personalised ceremony with professionalism and joy – putting you at ease and making sure all your guests feel a real part of the occasion. You will then receive a commemorative copy of your unique ceremony script to keep and treasure.
