Where can we have our renewal of vows ceremony? One of the wonderful things about having a renewal of vows ceremony is that you can have it wherever you wish! There are no legal restrictions for this type of service and, as such, you have complete freedom to choose your venue.
Many renewal of vows ceremonies are held in hotels, village halls, barns or even at home. Some couples choose to treat a renewal of vows ceremony as a repeat of their wedding day – heading back to the original location – and others choose to have something completely different.
The choice of setting is entirely yours with this type of ceremony as a celebrant is not restricted in any way by location. The only limitation is your own imagination, so why not have something out of the ordinary? It’s your special day afterall; it should be exactly as you envisage it.

What are some meaningful ideas of where we could have our renewal of vows ceremony?
A renewal of vows ceremony is all about recommitting your love to your significant other. It’s about celebrating your bond and sharing the joy that binds you together with all of your loved ones. You can reinforce this special celebration with the venue you choose to host the ceremony.
- Hold the ceremony in an important place to you as a couple, such as where you first met, where your partner proposed or the place you shared your favourite holiday
- You could take the ceremony outdoors in a place of outstanding beauty
- A space that was important to someone special in your life who is no longer with you
The options really are endless; and if you don’t know where to start, this is where your Celebrant can help!
Can I hold the renewal of vows ceremony in a church?
Yes… and maybe.
Most celebrants will be happy to host your renewal of vows ceremony in a church; however, if you have chosen a humanist celebrant, this may not be possible.
Essentially, you will need to check with both the celebrant and the church itself.
