Renew your vows

 

Vow renewal

Are you about to celebrate that special milestone anniversary: twenty-five, forty or even fifty years of married life?

Do you know somebody close to you, parents or grandparents, who have given you those years of love and support and you wish to help them celebrate a wonderful family occasion? There is no better way of acknowledging the day than preceding the anniversary party with a delightful ceremony to renew those treasured marriage vows. Renewing your vows doesn’t mean that the vows you took on your wedding day weren’t meaningful, but it can serve as a reminder of what your commitment to one another really means.

Publicly reaffirming your commitments especially in front of family and friends can be very powerful and a great asset to a healthy marriage. It is a great time to reflect on the blessings and tribulations you have been through together and what to look forward to in your future.

Maybe, as a younger couple, you held your marriage or civil partnership ceremony abroad in an idyllic tropical setting? Now that you are home and the photograph album has been shared with family and friends, perhaps you would like to relive the moment and let those closest to you witness the restating of your vows to each other and follow with a celebratory party at the venue of your choice. Warwickshire Registration Service will be happy to assist you in making your arrangements and conducting a ceremony.

The renewal ceremony has no legal standing: this allows the freedom for each couple to create a unique celebration to suit their own particular requirements. You will receive an options booklet to assist you with planning. All choices not in our booklet must be approved by registration staff.

Where can the ceremony be held?

We offer renewal of vows ceremonies in all the registration offices and approved premises within the county. They may be celebrated on any day of the week except Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year’s Day.

What happens in the ceremony?

Each ceremony is divided into sections and can reflect events in your life together. They give you the chance to create something personal and special:

  • An introduction and welcome
  • The acknowledgement of any children of the marriage
  • Readings by friends or the couple themselves
  • Re-dedication of rings, or giving of new rings or gifts
  • The signing of the commemorative certificate
  • Closing words

You do not need to include every section in your ceremony, and each part of the ceremony can be as simple or as complex as you wish.
