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.

Symbolic Sandblending for your wedding

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.

Ringwarming ceremony with Horseshoes
A huge, huge thank you not just for our wedding day but the 18 months prior to that when you guided us through everything and created something that was really special. We got lots of comments on how personal  and  well thought out and planned the ceremony was and that was down to you. A humungous thank you you for making our day so memorable.

Ben and Natalie

We made it! We wanted to thank you for being such a big part in our wedding journey. We will be forever blessed to have been able to meet and work with you. Thank you for everything, you’ve been a true rock for us throughout this. Thank you so much for sticking with us and making this experience a bright and joyful one.

Ross and Sheena

Anne Marie was the celebrant at our wedding where we originally had a registrar, but due to moving dates (covid), we couldn’t get the date and time with them. We can honestly say it worked out for the better. The ceremony was so much more personal vs a council legal wedding, where Anne Marie spent a lot of time getting to know us personally and really took care putting together our story to share to everyone on our big day. Everyone told us how beautiful the ceremony was. We can’t recommend Anne Marie enough! Thank you!!

Luke and Emily

We chose Anne-Marie to be our celebrant for our wedding ceremony. She took the time to really get to know us and wrote a fantastic, personalised script for the day and had such a way to piece together our life and present it to our guests. On the day she delivered it perfectly. All our guests commented on how fantastic she was, and we couldn’t have made a better choice. Thank you Anne-Marie, for everything.

Laura and Guy Wedding ceremony with umbrella

What a lovely lady. Due to Covid we couldn’t have as many guests as we wanted at our official ceremony. I have to say, I am pleased that was the case. The ceremony was far beyond our expectations and much better than the legal one. Anne-Marie was amazing at extracting information about how we met and how our relationship works. When she sent the proof to read prior to the day she had us crying with laughter. She also made sure everything was as it should be at our venue. Couldn’t recommend her enough.

Guy and Laura

The service Anne-Marie provided from start to finish was personal, thorough and exceptionally professional. She left no stone unturned throughout the process and oversaw and explained every step to make sure we had the most perfect ceremony. Our day went better than we could have ever imagined, due to the exceptional work ethic and keen eye for detail that Anne-Marie has. We are so thankful to have chosen to have a Celebrant ceremony as it enabled us to bring our story to life for our friends and family and this was made possible thanks to Anne-Marie.

Handfasting Wedding Ceremony

Anne-Marie was lovely to work with when we were planning our ceremony discussing all the details that made the ceremony go without a hitch. Anne-Marie literally tied the knot for us during the beautiful handfasting ceremony that she performed, it was absolutely perfect and a moment we will never forget.

Stella and Pete

I cannot recommend Anne Marie enough! She deserves way more than 5 stars. Our wedding ceremony was perfect, and Anne-Marie took the time to get to know us both on a personal level to create our unique ceremony. All of our guests commented on how perfectly the ceremony was written and Anne-Marie has even sent us a copy to keep. If you are looking for a celebrant look no further!

Sand Blending Wedding Ceremony L & G and their children

Thank you for all the time and effort you put into our ceremony, it was such a pleasure to meet you and we enjoyed our afternoon in the garden telling you the tale of how we met, you translated this into such gorgeous piece capturing  both our personalities within the humour you injected into your speech. We cried with laughter when we first read it and again at the wedding. We all (including the guests) loved it all. The sand ceremony was extra special allowing the kids to be part of it all.

Laura and Guy

Anne-Marie is a very professional celebrant, who made us feel relaxed and excited about our big day. If we had questions she would always be on hand to answer them quickly and in detail. Our day couldn’t have gone any better; having Anne-Marie guide us made the entire experience beautiful and it was full of joy. You won’t find anyone better!
