Renewal of Vows Ceremonies
“True love does not wither or die. It merely ripens.”
A renewal of vows ceremony is a public declaration that you are still committed to your marriage and a testimony that the trials and challenges of past years have not weakened but strengthened the bond of love between you.
A renewal of vows ceremony is the occasion for couples to renew their marriage vows after difficult times or an anniversary. During your renewal of vows ceremony, you will be able to proclaim your continuing love for each other and reaffirm your commitment to each other and to the marriage vows you had previously taken.
Whilst your renewal of vows ceremony can follow the same rituals and traditions as a marriage ceremony, no official documents nor marriage certificate will be registered. The couple will sign a Re-Affirmation of Marriage Vows certificate, along with two nominated witnesses.
As some of the guests at your renewal of vows ceremony may not have been present at your wedding; you may want to include wording and vows from your original wedding ceremony, and even exchange the same wedding rings or brand new rings to celebrate and symbolise the long lasting connection between you. Placing a photo from your wedding day on the signing table could also be a nice touch.
The preparation of a renewal of vows ceremony is similar to a wedding ceremony. As a professional celebrant I will assist you and provide suggestions to make this ceremony a truly memorable occasion. I can provide many poems and readings applicable for a renewal of vows ceremony as well.
Wedding vow renewal ceremonies can be as creative and personal as you want them to be; that is why it is very important you feel comfortable with the celebrant you’ve selected.
I hope that you place this trust in me as your civil marriage celebrant for this very special occasion.
