What is the Renewal of Vows ceremony?
What is the renewal of vows ceremony? A vow renewal ceremony is an opportunity for a couple to renew the vows they shared when they first were married. It is a time of celebration and commemoration for the love that binds them together and how it may have matured over the years.
A renewal of vows ceremony is your chance to re-declare your love for one another in front of your family and friends. You might repeat the same vows you originally had in your wedding ceremony or perhaps even use totally new words to express your love.
While these ceremonies are not intended to be a second wedding, they are a beautiful way to say ‘i do’ once again. It’s a time to reflect, celebrate and look forward to your future together as partners for life.
Why should I renew my vows?
There are many reasons why a couple may choose to renew their vows. In a nutshell, it is a meaningful way to shine a light on your marriage all over again.
Some decide to renew their vows to celebrate a significant milestone in their lives, such as an anniversary or the birth of a child. Others will do so after a period of struggle in their relationship; a period that they have risen from stronger and more in love than ever before.
Whatever your reason, a renewal of vows ceremony is an unforgettable way to show your commitment to one another in a bespoke and personal way.
When can I renew my vows?
You may be celebrating 10, 20 or 50 years as a couple or simply been married just a short time but changes in your life have meant you’d like to recommit your vows to your significant other once more.
There is no minimum or maximum amount of time following your marriage in which you can (or cannot!) renew your vows. It can take place at any point following your wedding… even the very next day!
